BEATING THE (WALKING) DEAD HORSE…

BEATING THE (WALKING) DEAD HORSE…

Frank Sudol, director of one of the most unusual zombie films made in years, “City of Rott,” created this rather cool entry for “Diary of the Dead” that didn’t win, but is still one of my favorites. In lieu of the May release of the “Diary of the Dead” DVD, I thought this warranted some […]

KIMBA THE WHITE LION VOL. 1 (DVD)

3.5 Stars
Year Released: 1965
MPAA Rating: Unrated

In spite of the controversy, “Kimba” is a nice little cartoon series with great cult appeal…

GIRLS ROCK!

3 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 90 minutes

While the effort is admirable and the Rock and Roll Camp is a worthy cause, “Girls Rock!” lacks a real pay-off…

SUPERHERO MOVIE

2 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: PG-13
Running Time: 85 minutes

Like many titles in the sub-genre, “Superhero Movie” just doesn’t know when to call it a day, dragging on and on (odd for a movie that doesn’t even reach ninety minutes)…

HAVING ANOTHER GO AT THIS ACTING THING, ELISHA?

HAVING ANOTHER GO AT THIS ACTING THING, ELISHA?

The original unnecessarily complicated romance comedy is now being remade into a watered down and much more sugary romantic comedy, and goody, they seem to have left in much of the same male bashing from the original. [youtube]VXsMTxrsQR4[/youtube]

ILS (THEM) (DVD)

4 Stars
Year Released: 2006
MPAA Rating: R
Running Time: 78 minutes

An absolutely excellent foreign horror treat worthy of every bit of hype it’s received since its premiere. Dark Sky couldn’t have chosen a better film for their modern library…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MCQUEEN…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MCQUEEN…

As a huge fan of McQueen movies, I think it’s proper that we all give a bout of respect to Steve McQueen. Today is his birthday, after all. Let’s watch some of my favorite clips from my favorite McQueen film “The Getaway.” [youtube]cSYu0QS4kJY[/youtube] [youtube]YJ4YRjDxnR4[/youtube] Here’s to you, King of cool…

HOW TO ROB A BANK

3 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 82 minutes

IN LIMITED RELEASE! In spite of the caveats, it makes for a good time with Christensen providing lovely eye candy, but as for Jenkins and his hipper than thou dialogue, and gritty direction? I’m not impressed…

TYLER PERRY’S MEET THE BROWNS

TYLER PERRY’S MEET THE BROWNS
3.5 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: PG-13
Running Time: 100 minutes

Though I wouldn’t call myself a Perry fan, “Meet the Browns” convinces me to keep my mind open to his other works…

NEVER BACK DOWN

NEVER BACK DOWN
2 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: PG-13
Running Time: 110 minutes

In spite of some merits, it’s just a lazy pastiche of other fighting films while always confused about where to take its protagonists…

LOST BOYS 2…

LOST BOYS 2…

Fact: “Lost Boys” is one of my favorite horror films of all time. Fact: It’s a childhood favorite. Fact: I was always hoping we’d get a sequel instead of a remake. Fact: A remake is inevitable. Fact: I want “The Lost Girls” badly. A big cast of lovely female actresses? Yes please. Fact: I am […]

10,000 B.C.

2 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: PG-13
Running Time: 109 minutes

Strait has to be one of the most unsympathetic cardboard heroes of the genre, while Bell leaves little reason to care for her beyond her bitching dreadlocks…

INTIMIDAD

INTIMIDAD
4 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 73 minutes

2008 SXSW LONE STAR STATES DOCUMENTARY FEATURE! The ultimate pay off is brilliantly poetic and gentle in its way, leaving the audience with a definite message that sometimes all we need is family and even the biggest dreams can sometimes come true, even if they’re not how we originally planned…

ATTN: SPIELBERG, BOLL JUST LAID DOWN THE GAUNTLET…

ATTN: SPIELBERG, BOLL JUST LAID DOWN THE GAUNTLET…

Hey Spielberg, your number is up, Uwe Boll just put down the gauntlet and is preparing to match “Postal” against that little known independent film “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” a movie we all know will fail to bring in audiences. Says Boll in AITH: “On the Indiana Jones weekend – […]
