ARID LANDS

ARID LANDS
2.5 Stars

ALIEN VS. PREDATOR: REQUIEM

1 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: R
Running Time: 86 minutes

If the AVP concept is going to be a trilogy (and the ending suggests as much), then I could possibly believe that “Requiem” is just the lackluster, mediocre one in the middle…

EL ORFANATO (THE ORPHANAGE)

3 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: R
Running Time: 100 minutes

“El Orfanato” is still a better-than-average first effort, elevated by Rueda’s performance and the film’s evocative look and brought back down to earth by an excessively predictable outcome…

THE WHISTLE BLOWER EXPOSES SOMETHING IN THE WATER…?

THE WHISTLE BLOWER EXPOSES SOMETHING IN THE WATER…?

It’s been reported in Cloverfield Clues that folks keeping in touch with Tagruato have been receiving Sonar imagery of something extremely large lurking in the waters. Though no sources have confirmed what the unidentified object is, it’s reported to be humongous in mass and not any kind of recognizable aquatic organism. Stick with us as […]

JAMIE LOVES TEDDY SIX: RETURNING A CALL…

JAMIE LOVES TEDDY SIX: RETURNING A CALL…

In the final video of the series, Jamie is insistent on calling Teddy back and tracking him down. And she does. And she’s called back, in a hint of suspenseful foreshadowing to the film. [youtube]CkPYGNi1wWQ[/youtube] Video six, another six in the string of sixes in the Cloverfield mystery. “Cloverfield” is upon us.

BEN 10: RACE AGAINST TIME (DVD)

3 Stars

There are flaws to be expected and flaws I forgave, but overall Majors is a nice touch as Grandpa Max, and the live action format works in the series favor…

WORST OF 2007…

WORST OF 2007…

Since I’m impatient, and I’m already finished with my list, I thought it’d be fun to post the ten worst films I saw in 2007. Granted, films like “Norbit” and “Are we Done Yet?” haven’t been included because I haven’t seen them, but keeping it in mind, this is the (truncated version of the) worst […]
