  • Movie Review – Mortal Instruments
    If you loved the book, Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones, then you’ll love the movie. I base this on the fact that there was a smattering of applause at the end of the movie coming from a group of people who all sat together. They were the die-hard fans of ...
  • Movie Review – Elysium
    In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a huge scifi fan. That means I’m really hard on scifi movies. They have to be outstanding for me to give them a good rating. Unfortunately Elysium orbits a long, LONG, way from outstanding. If you’re not a particularly big scifi fan then you ...
  • Movie Review – Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters
    I must admit, I enjoyed Percy Jackson much more than I expected. It isn’t the sort of movie that will win any awards — however, the craftsmanship was first rate. It’s a good story that is well paced throughout. In fact, I found myself getting lost in the story, which ...
  • Movie Review – Turbo – Faster & Funnier Than a Snail’s Pace
    Turbo was a charming little movie about dreams and perseverance. There was lots of laughter from the children in the audience, and more than a few chuckles from the parents. The characters were cute and interesting. Samuel Jackson, as the voice of Whiplash, and Paul Giamatti, as the brother Chet, were outstanding. The ...
  • Movie Review – Oblivion
    This film will certainly be enjoyed by die hard sci-fi lovers for its beautiful visuals — it’s particularly wonderful if you see it in IMAX. The dystopian story of an Earth post-alien invasion starts off a little slow, but is intriguing. There’s a genius scene in a swimming pool. Half-way through the ...
  • Movie Review – The Hobbit
    It’s such a pleasure to return to Middle-Earth. Peter Jackson and his team have masterfully recreated and expanded the universe according to Tolkien. I know from the production diaries, created during the filming of *The Hobbit*, that the undertaking was massive. Not just in the technical challenges of filming at 48fps ...
  • Movie Review – Rise of the Guardians – A Great Holiday Film About Jack Frost
    A visually stunning movie that is destined to become a holiday classic, along with Rudolph and The Grinch. The overarching theme of The Rise of The Guardians revolves around Jack Frost finding his identity, and how important beliefs are in shaping reality. The importance of “finding your center” is explored by multiple ...
  • Movie review: Breaking Dawn – Part 2
    Epic ending to an epic saga! I enjoyed the other movies but I loved this one. Luckily I got to see the midnight showing. Personally I love these crowds. When something crazy goes down on the screen the midnighters have something to say about it. The theater was roaring during ...
  • Analysis of Inception
    If you would like to read my movie review of Inception – no spoilers – then go here. As soon as the movie is over you’re left wondering: Is Cobb -Leonardo DiCaprio – awake at the end? Or was this all a dream? Whose dream? It is brilliant writing to not only leave these and ...
  • Movie Review – How to Train Your Dragon (No Spoilers)
    How to Train Your Dragon was a good solid kids movie the whole family can enjoy. There were a handful of fun action scenes that appeal to kids. I was surprised it had a PG rating instead of a G. The fighting scenes are very cartoonish: nothing more violent than ...
  • Movie Review – Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs – An Appealing Kid Flick in Any Weather
    This might be the best children’s move of the summer, and I think it will appeal to a lot of adults as well. Visually, I think it will speak most to children in the 3-6 age range. The action and physical humor will appeal to the 7-10 age range and ...
  • Movie Review – Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
    Let me start by saying that I’m not a big Harry Potter fan. I’ve seen all of the movies and thought they were okay. But I haven’t read any of the books. And I’m a huge Lord of the Rings fan – both of the books and movies. I must confess ...
  • Review: Transformers – Revenge of the Fallen
      The sequel to the 2007 blockbuster “Transformers” is out and it is rockin! When I see trailers for movies I decide (because of my ever-shrinking budget) whether it is going to be a “wait for the DVD” movie or “go see it in the theatre” movie. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” ...
  • Movie Review – Iron Man – Genius, Philanthropist, etc who started it all
    This is the movie that started it all for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it still holds up after all this time. In fact, knowing the character arc of Tony Stark (at least up to the end of Infinity War) makes this first movie even better. Not many franchises can ...
