Movie review: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Grade: A- I am a vampire movie lover and Abe Lincoln is my favorite president. You put the two together and the sparks fly! I love how the movie integrated real history with Vampire lore. It worked really well together for me. The fight scenes were very well done. Abe can really swing an axe! […]

Movie review: That’s My Boy

Don’t you hate it when the movie companies release a trailer that contains every funny scene in the movie? You get your hopes up that it’s going to be a hilarious movie only to find out that you’ve already seen all of the funny scenes sitting at home on your couch for free. I was […]

Movie review: Hysteria

It’s a fun and enjoyable movie that is probably best left as a rental. Tanya Wexler, the director of “Hysteria”, gracefully walked a fine line between humor and obscenity. I’m a big fan of historical period-pieces. As such vI’d give this movie a passing grade only because, from what I’ve learned, they did a good […]

Movie review: Prometheus

You should know that I’m a HUGE fan of the Aliens universe and have been looking forward to this movie since I first heard about its production. I didn’t think the movie was OMG fantastic but I wasn’t disappointed. And I’m looking forward to watching it a few more times. I have the feeling that […]

Movie review: Skyfall

Grade: A *Skyfall* is in my estimation the best of the Daniel Craig Bond movies and that’s saying a lot because *Casino Royal* was fabulous. *Skyfall* has all of the ingredients you expect in a Bond film: action, one line quips, flirtation and sex, and lets not forget the evil genius antagonist. In fact the […]

Movie review: The Man with the Iron Fists

Grade: D+ I thought *The Man with the Iron Fists* was horrible. However, if you’re looking forward to this film then you can take my review with a grain of salt because this isn’t a genre that I’m overly fond of. Not to say that I don’t enjoy any martial arts movies. I thought *Crouching […]

Movie review: Cloud Atlas

Grade: B *Cloud Atlas* is not an easy movie to review. It is confusing, and epic, and sometimes epically confusing. This is clearly a movie with a mission statement I’m just not entirely sure it’s something I get after one viewing. ( It doesn’t help that I was writing peetime notes throughout most of the […]

Movie review: Alex Cross

Grade: D- Let me preface this review by letting you know I don’t have any background with the Alex Cross stories. I’m coming into this as a newbie. As a newbie I thought this movie left a lot to be desired. First, the good stuff: I thought Tyler Perry was decent as Dr. Alex Cross. […]

Movie review: Argo

Grade: A- Wonderful movie all the way around. Great performances from the entire cast. Affleck did a great job both acting and directing. If you’ve seen the previews then you have a complete understanding of what the plot is. No surprises there. The biggest surprise for me was the humor. The audience laughed out loud […]
