Identity Thief Review

Remember that really funny and outrageous comedy Horrible Bosses? If anybody did, then we all got excited thinking about goofy-looking comedy starring Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy also directed by the same Seth Gordon. Unfortunately, Identity Thief wasn’t the one we were thinking of. The whole story revolves around Bateman’s character, Sandy Bigelow Patterson who, … Continue reading

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Review

The grand and magical world Peter Jackson once brought to us with his astonishing adaptation of The Lord of the Ring trilogy is now expanding it starting with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Many disputes went on the subject before its release due to its technical breakthroughs and its story being divided over three films.  … Continue reading

This is 40 Review

Judd Apatow brought us a lot of the best R rated comedies in this last decade, filled with crude-language humor, sex jokes and dysfunctional families’ taboo situations. This is 40 is Apatow’s latest piece, and knowing his work, this should have been a comedy filled with drama and life-realizations. Instead, it’s a stretched-up drama with … Continue reading

The Guilt Trip Review

The Guilt Trip tries really hard with this, not sure if fun would be the right word, mother/son spin involving a bonding-road trip that the studios could have passed on. Andy Brewster (Seth Rogen) is a chemist that is looking to sell a new cleaning product he just invented, and now has an itinerary for … Continue reading

Total Recall (2012) DVD Review

Today, we cannot escape from endless movie remakes of what only seems to be barely old. Total Recall falls under that category. It tries to convey a new face for this 1966 novel adaptation and separate itself from its 1990 Schwarzenegger’s unforgettable heavy sci-fi take, but just doesn’t seem to work all that well. In … Continue reading

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance Blu-ray Review

How is one to describe one of the love it or hate it Marvel franchise? It’s really up to you to decide, but for I, it personally left me indifferent. Nicolas Cage is back as Johnny Blaze in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and leaves an uneven performance in this darker and pivotal sequel. In … Continue reading

Snow White and The Huntsman Review

As many times as one re-tells and re-imagines a new take on a classic tale told many years before we can even remember, it doesn’t mean the newer it is, the better it’ll be. Snow White and the Huntsman took that chance by being the second remake in one year of the same story, with … Continue reading

Dark Shadows Review

Tim Burton takes us to his usual and familiar realm of grainy film and Goth-like characters for his retake on Dark Shadows, which unfortunately doesn’t quite seem to know how to transgress from its TV show’s roots and a stand-alone piece. With Burton’s favorite cast of characters, this morbid tale tells the story of Barnabas … Continue reading
