X-Men: First Class

After being scarred for life by watching X-Men Origins: Wolverine I have decided, I was done with X-Men films. Apparently, I was not the only one since. The Hugh Jackman’s solo performance was so bad that it managed to almost … Continue reading

The Fountain

Back in 2006 Darren Aronofsky released a science fiction movie called The Fountain. It starred Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz, it had rather intriguing plot and it went absolutely nowhere. Most people haven’t seen it, or forgot that it existed. … Continue reading

3D Movies

I think I made fun of the recent 3D movie trend in the past, but I never really devoted an entire post to it. I think it’s time, especially since Thor was the first movie I saw in 3D since … Continue reading

Thor

I never really read Thor or Avenger comics so reviewing the latest batch of Marvel movies is a slightly different experience for me. While my rants about Spider Man, X-men or Daredevil were colored by my knowledge if the source … Continue reading

Zardoz

People love to rag on Zardoz. It has been described to me as the worst Sean Connery movie ever made, and close to one of the worst movies in general. Not only that, but it is a constant source of … Continue reading

Sucker Punch

Before I say anything about Sucker Punch, I want to give you some context. I watched this movie mainly because of the review posted below. I generally hold Movie Bob’s reviews in high regard – it rarely happens that one … Continue reading

Super

I just watched Super. Holly shit. It totally not what I expected it to be. It’s much better… And much darker… When you watch the trailer, you get the impression that this movie is just a wacky comedy in which … Continue reading

Adjustment Bureau

If you put a gun to my head and told me to spell the word bureau for you, I would be extremely dead in a very short amount of time. It is one of those words that I always manage … Continue reading

Tron: Legacy

One word review: Meh… Although I did like Olivia Wilde striking poses like this one the entire movie: Yes, I’m serious. That is exactly my opinion of the new Tron movie. It was not great, but it wasn’t horrible either. … Continue reading

You are tearing me apart Lisa!

So I watched this again yesterday: This is sort of becoming an [adult swim] tradition. For several years now they have been airing this cinematic abortion on April Fools. In case you didn’t guess from the image above, I’m talking … Continue reading

The Social Network

Several people asked me what I thought about “The Social Network”. I think I became sort of a litmus test for technological competence in Hollywood movies. I just have very low tolerance for the lazy and outlandish portrayal of technology … Continue reading

Why Source Code is a stupid movie title

Have you guys see the trailers for that new Jake Gyllenhaal movie titled Source Code? Groansworthy, isn’t it? I mean, not the trailer, the title. Although the trailer doesn’t look that hot either. People are trying to tell me it … Continue reading

2009 Star Trek Reboot

I finally got around to watching the travesty that is the 2009 Star Trek reboot attempt. Now, please keep in mind that I am not a Trekkie. I somehow never got on that bandwagon. I’m not sure why, actually. Other … Continue reading

Equilibrium: I’m Not Feeling It

Recently I have been picking up and watching a lot of older movies that I have missed over the years. Equilibrium is one of these films. I missed it when it originally came out but I have seen it regularly … Continue reading

Repo Men: here to reclaim your organs

Do you know that Monty Python sketch about live organ transplants? In case you have not seen it or don’t recall it here it is: The silly idea of repossessing live organs by force is essentially the whole idea behind … Continue reading

Ink

When you watch the trailer for Ink, you may get the impression that this is yet another “SyFy presents” low budget, low brow SF flick. This impression would be dead wrong. While Ink is low budget, it is nowhere near … Continue reading

Scott Pilgrim vs The World

I finally got to see Scott Pilgrim vs The World and I absolutely loved it. It didn’t do that well at the box office, and there is a lot folks who dismiss it with a shrug but it is undeniably … Continue reading

Unbreakable

Unbreakable is probably the least talked about movie of M. Night Shyamalan’s career. I never had a chance to watch it before, but on paper it sounded great. I mean you really can’t go wrong when you have Bruce Willis … Continue reading

Dark City

I honestly don’t know how I missed this movie when it first came out. Actually I think I know – I believe that 1998 was the year when I moved to US and tried to figure this crazy place out. … Continue reading

Let the Right One In

In most parts of the world showing foreign movies in the theaters is something normal and commonplace. When there is a big international blockbuster film it will be purchased by a local distributor, then translated into the local language and … Continue reading

Kick-Ass

Holly shit, I love this movie! I should start this review by saying that the super hero genre is overplayed and that Kick-Ass is a genuinely funny deconstruction which takes all the familiar tropes, cranks them up to 11 and … Continue reading

Inception, Lucid Dreaming, Totems and Tests

I should have posted this last Monday (directly following the initial inception post) but real life intervened and I was sort of scraping the bottom of the barrel for content that was quick and easy to produce. Now that things … Continue reading

Epic Movies

Topic of the day is “Epic Movies”. And I don’t mean epic as in scope – I mean it in the way kids in the interwebs use it these days: awesome, incredible, cool, etc.. I asked this question once, but … Continue reading

Inception

Good movies are hard to find these days. This is one of them. Don’t pass this one up! I don’t give glowing reviews to movies lightly, but this one is just good. It has everything – good story, good plot, … Continue reading
