Movie review : Edge of Darkness

Edge of Darkness Buy the soundtrack for Edge of Darkness Purchase at iTunes Purchase at Amazon Mel Gibson provides just the right touch in Edge of Darkness – he’s a sweetheart father, a rough Boston cop dedicated to his job, and pretty darned good at psyching people out to give up their creepy intel. He’s […]

Movie review : When in Rome

When in Rome Buy the soundtrack for When in Rome Purchase at iTunes Purchase at Amazon I like Kristen Bell; she is a doll. When in Rome is charming fluff to pleasantly fill an hour and make you want to believe in magic. Maybe. Ignore the plot holes and try to just have fun. The […]

Okay, strike that, but it’s still weirdly coincidental. I saw this movie yesterday and have a lot to say about it. Still compiling my […]

Movie review : Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock Holmes Buy the soundtrack for Sherlock Holmes Purchase at iTunes Purchase at Amazon.com . . Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes legions can relax; this Holmes outing isn’t too egregious. In fact, it’s even a good time for all. The plot isn’t really afoot, here. In other words, the plot is only okay – it has notes […]
