Movie Review: Your Sister’s Sister

With indie films, you never know exactly what you are going to get. Every once in a while you get a nice surprise. Thus is the case with Your Sister’s Sister, written and directed by Lynn Shelton (Humpday). The always-charming Mark Duplass plays Jack, who is struggling with his grief one year after the...

Movie Review: Magic Mike

When I first saw the trailer for Magic Mike, I thought it looks tremendously bad, as in Showgirls bad, and I immediately dismissed it. However, when I found out that Steven Soderbergh was directing, I was really scratching my head. Why would this well-respected director waste his time with rubbish? Turns out that Magic Mike is a movie that...

Movie Review: Ted

Seth MacFarlene’s feature-film directing debut mines two of his favorite devices: anthropomorphism and ’80s pop culture. In Family Guy we got a talking dog; in American Dad, a talking fish (and an alien); in The Cleveland Show, a family of talking bears. Now, in Ted, we get another talking bear. It goes without saying...

Movie Review: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

For everyone who has become utterly disgusted with what vampires have been reduced to at the modern cinema, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter serves as a welcome reprieve from all that nonsense. These are not the sparkly, love-struck vampires we have been subjected to as of late (I’m talking about you, Cullen clan).  They aren’t...

Rock of Ages tells the story of a Sherrie (Julianne Hough), a sweet girl from Oklahoma who lands on the Sunset Strip seeking fame and fortune as a singer.

Movie Review: Seeking Justice

There’s a surprising amount of star power behind the newly released straight –to-DVD thriller Seeking Justice (the film had a very small limited release). Nicolas Cage, Guy Pearce, January Jones, Jennifer Carpenter, Harold Perrineau  and Xander Berkely star in a story that slowly unravels a mystery concerning vigilantism run amok in modern day New...

Movie Review: Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding

Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding is a fairly rote piece of fluff, but exemplary performances by the talented cast make the film worth a watch.  Catherine Keener stars as Diane, an icy and uptight lawyer who has just found out her husband wants a divorce. This event serves as the impetus for her to visit...

Movie Review: Madagascar 3

The beloved former Central Park Zoo denizens and their Antarctic penguin friends who comprise the billion dollar Madagascar franchise are back, this time in 3D. As if that’s not enough to ensure a colorful, frenzied, 3D good time, they land (in the chimps’ plane) in Monte Carlo, and join up with the circus. The...

Movie Review: Snow White and the Huntsman

I don’t know what the point of this movie is. at times, it’s great to look at, and has some clever visuals such as dipping Charlize Theron in ivory or having her vanish in a murder of crows…or ravens, which are probably the right birds, seeing as how her name is Ravenna. She’s the...

Movie Review: Sound of My Voice

One of the most fascinating films I saw at SXSW 2011 was an indie film called Sound of My Voice.  The premise is modest-an aspiring pair of filmmakers decide they want to infiltrate a cult they have learned about, presumably to expose the leader as being full of crap. She claims to be from...

Movie Review: Moonrise Kingdom

I originally was going to write that Moonrise Kingdom was, at 94 minutes, among Wes Anderson’s shortest films, but after researching the running times of his previous work, it actually is right in the middle–shorter than The Life Aquatic (119 minutes) and The Royal Tenenbaums (109 minutes), but longer than Rushmore (93 minutes) and...

Movie Review: Men in Black III

The good guys, dressed in black, are back. Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith return fifteen years after the original Men in Black and a decade after the lackluster sequel. Number three even manages to be closer in quality to its original than its direct predecessor, by finding fresh and inventive ways of revitalizing...

Movie Review: Battleship

It’s a board-game movie, so I don’t think anyone has their expectations especially high, though the only other board-game movie I can think of off the top of my head is Clue, and it was fantastic. And Connect Four, but I think that’s a porno. Seriously, we all kind of knew this wasn’t going...

What to Expect When You’re Expecting Review-Erin’s Take

What to Expect When You Are Expecting is the story (or stories) of five woman who have no real connection to one another, outside of an extra “x”  chromosome (and an affinity towards reality TV). The sole reason that they are all in this movie is because each are on a journey for the same...

Movie Review: What to Expect When You’re Expecting

War has been said to be 99% tedium interspersed with 1% pure terror. And so it is with pregnancy, childbirth and baby rearing, only thankfully (else who would do it?), in these pursuits there are also intervals of intense joy. Perhaps appropriately then, something akin to this ratio of tedium to pain and pleasure...

Movie Review: Entrance

Although Entrance is being marketed as a horror film, it is actually a hybrid of character study and horror. I’m not going to lie; the first 2/3 of the movie is an exceptionally sluggish slow burn. I actually picked up the screening notes twice and reread them, because I thought I had been sent...

Movie Review: The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

From the blowsy, cutesy, painfully unfunny trailer for this film, I went into the screening with eyes half averted, dreading the sight of some of my favorite British film actors pandering to the elderly art film audience in a mawkishly feel-good contrivance. And while there’s mawkishness, to be sure, as well as feel-good contrivance,...

Movie Review: Dark Shadows

  Tim Burton’s attempts to homage, revamp, and satirize his latest remake Dark Shadows are ambitious, but fruitless.  As he tries to entertain, wow, scare, and captivate the audience, he takes what could have been a tongue-in-cheek revival of the cult classic and instead makes a film that lacks cohesiveness with no clear tone or...
