The Lorax

Posted : 2 years ago on 3 December 2015 11:19 (A review of The Lorax)

The message is anything but subtle and thankfully neither is the comedy.

The casting of DeVito was perfect, leading a decent voice cast overall.

Overall, it was surprising good, nothing special or new, as far as writing, animation, editing, but good overall. 6/10 seems it is!

A Missed Nostalgic Reunion

Posted : 2 years ago on 27 November 2015 06:35 (A review of American Reunion)




Not much of a plot here, essentially a series of scenes attempting to make us laugh. It's like "Grown Ups" but actually funny at times.

I still found this fourth entry interesting as I have grown up along with the characters, with me being only a year younger than them I can relate with the characters and where they are in life, with each film.

What's next 'American Death'?  I'll still watch it.

Life on Four Strings

Posted : 2 years ago on 26 November 2015 02:23 (A review of Jake Shimabukuro: Life on Four Strings)

A documentary on the master of the ukelele himself. This doc takes a beautiful look into an interesting man and the effect he has on the music world. As a production it ends up being mediocre and relies completely on its subject.

A Sapphirical Movie

Posted : 2 years ago on 26 November 2015 01:01 (A review of The Sapphires)

A fun, true story from Australia with great singing moments and likable characters who keep you smiling throughout.
 I was not impressed with the direction and the unnecessary parts that weren't based on the real story. Mainly, how does a soldier get the chance to just follow his love interest around Viet Nam, as if he were a college dropout in the USA?

Not Enough Said

Posted : 2 years ago on 25 November 2015 11:39 (A review of Enough Said)



Fun, charming script but nothing real original about the story and it's quite predictable. What makes it watchable are the well-cast leads and nicely developed supporting characters.

Hobo with a Review

Posted : 2 years, 1 month ago on 13 November 2015 12:53 (A review of Hobo with a Shotgun)

Rutger Hauer's brilliant in this film, which is satisfying to say since it hasn't been said for decades. This time we get to see him in a no-holds-barred ass-kicking exploitation movie that was wrung about from the ho-hum effort of 2007's Grindhouse double-bill.
The coolest thing that came out of that double bill was the trailers and the strangest/still very cool thing was that two of these trailers actually becomes films, with 'Machete' somehow still getting money to have a sequel.

The Less Than Great Buck Howard

Posted : 2 years, 1 month ago on 8 November 2015 03:14 (A review of The Great Buck Howard)

A movie with great potential that falls a little flat. But Emily Blunt and Tom Hanks, with limited screen time, keep it interesting.

More Precocious Than Precious

Posted : 2 years, 1 month ago on 8 November 2015 02:25 (A review of Precious)

Not sure why all the hype; but there certainly are some interesting aspects to it. Sibide and Patton are stand outs while Mo'nique's overrated performance is so ridiculous it's comical.

A Whistleblowin' We Shall Go

Posted : 2 years, 1 month ago on 8 November 2015 02:08 (A review of The Whistleblower)

A frustrating movie until the end, and then we still aren't completely satisfied. This is a difficult subject matter to watch but Rachel Weisz, whose performance seems stiff at first, makes this movie very digestible and enjoyable, despite the subject matter.

More Semi-Producers

Posted : 2 years, 1 month ago on 4 November 2015 01:25 (A review of The Producers)

Why do producers still think people like Broderick? A lesser effort than both the Broadway stage version and the original film from the 70's. The funny parts are still in the songs, but besides that they take up about 6 minutes of the film.
