HORROR HOST SIR GRAVES IS DEAD…

HORROR HOST SIR GRAVES IS DEAD…

While the entertainment world grieves over the death of Jack Valenti, I’m saddened to hear the news of the death, at 94, of horror host Sir Graves Ghastly. Sir Graves was a horror host whose show was seen by many in the Midwest. I grew up in Detroit watching the scaaaaaaaary antics of SG who […]

DARREN ARONOFSKY BATTLES “EVAN ALMIGHTY” BUT NOT REALLY…

DARREN ARONOFSKY BATTLES “EVAN ALMIGHTY” BUT NOT REALLY…

Noah and his ark are certainly making an impression in modern film. In fact, it seems there is so much Noah business going on that I am surprised Michael Bay isn’t getting on this train, with his 360 degree camera angles and slow motion Ben Affleck. Affleck would make a great Noah. Probably. Maybe. Not. […]

THE NAMESAKE

3.5 Stars
Year Released: 2006
MPAA Rating: PG-13
Running Time: 122 minutes

IN LIMITED RELEASE! The film does not sit still; it pushes forward through time and space, stopping only long enough for the significance of one scene to inform the next…

THE SHARK IS STILL WORKING

4.5 Stars
Year Released: 2006
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 120 minutes

A spectacular craft of love from fans, and the best “Jaws” chronicle I’ve ever seen, bar none…

NEXT

2.5 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: PG-13
Running Time: 98 minutes

“Next” is loosely based on the Philip K. Dick story “The Golden Man,” emphasis on the “loosely,” for unlike “A Scanner Darkly,” “Next” bears almost no resemblance to the original story…

VACANCY

3 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: R
Running Time: 85 minutes

The film isn’t any longer than it needs to be (it’s only 80 minutes after all) but Smith lets the ending get the better of him and ends up being the film’s biggest flaw…

PATHFINDER

1.5 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: R
Running Time: 99 minutes

The fault here lies in the film’s dead rhythm, which never lights the sparks necessary for an action film…

UNREST

UNREST
3 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: R
Running Time: 88 minutes

Not so much GROSS anatomy as it is mildly disturbing anatomy….

THE REDSIN TOWER

4 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 80 minutes

“The Redsin Tower” is a gorgeous visual homage to Argento and Bava with its rich blues and blacks, and a story that evokes the classics of the ‘80s…

THE CONDEMNED

2 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: R
Running Time: 113 minutes

This is a popcorn flick first and foremost, and should be treated as such. It is entertaining, but don’t look to glean too much from it other than a few cool fight scenes and some funny one-liners…

GOODBYE MOMO

GOODBYE MOMO
2 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 108 minutes

IN LIMITED RELEASE BEGINNING APRIL 20! Unfortunately, too much of the film is sluggish in its pacing and tiresome in its focus.

GRAVEDANCERS (DVD)

GRAVEDANCERS (DVD)
4 Stars
