Movie review : Extraordinary Measures

Extraordinary Measures Buy the soundtrack for Extraordinary Measures Purchase at iTunes Purchase at Amazon This was a major disappointment, sad to say. The sick children were perky and adorable, and it was neat to watch Harrison Ford play a crotchety misogynist. And…that’s about it. B- and rent the DVD if you must. Here is the […]

Movie review : Legion

Legion Buy the soundtrack for Legion Purchase at iTunes Purchase at Amazon Legion. Big sigh. I wanted so much more. It’s about Revelations, sorta, and that is a really big deal in Christian mythology. Four horsemen, the holy host, avenging angels. The legions of God, right? Thus the title?

The Princess and the Frog Buy the soundtrack for The Princess and the Frog Purchase at iTunes Purchase at Amazon.com Unfortunately, I had the flu this week and did not want to spread it to a theater rull of children (or anyone, f0r that matter). So we asked Dan’s mother to get the PeeTimes for […]

Movie review : Armored

Armored Buy the soundtrack for Armored Purchase at iTunes Purchase at Amazon.com Armored is a nondemanding bit of amiable escapism. I appreciated the thriller’s lean pace, warehouse visuals and Columbus Short’s earnest, determined characterization. In the latter half of the film, it felt like a non-humorous version of Die Hard. No dig intended: I mean […]
