I enjoyed it immensely, most especially the twists and the hilarious scenes. There was also a moment when a tear trickled down my cheek. I also couldn't believe that I did not recognize Josh Groban in the film. As I was watching it I was thinking, that guy is so familiar. Which film is he from? Turns out he's not from a film, because this is his first one (Though he has done some spots on TV, like Ally McBeal and Glee. Had no trouble recognizing him in those.) I didn't recognize him without his ...

Exciting as it is, "Cowboys & Aliens" is hardly perfect. It is dramatically uneven, with its down-to-earth human elements hardly as enjoyable as the comic touches. I found it very hard to believe in many of the dynamics between the characters. The plot also becomes, especially in regards to the character played by Olivia Wilde, a little too complicated, I think, for it's own good. But those are dismissible flaws for a silly action spectacle like this. The only real nitpick that I have about the ...

The films, up to this point, portrayed those concepts brilliantly. The first two were bright, fun, and drew you in to a fascinating, surprising world. The middle three began to slowly grow darker, pulling you deeper into the emotions, fears, and relationships of the characters. The sixth and first half of the seventh saw the characters you had grown to love being forced to grow up quickly, confront their fears, and fight for their lives. It was with great excitement that I went into this final f...

I know Zookeeper is a family movie, I get that. But in my book, just because it's a family movie, doesn't automatically mean it's a good movie. Just for the record, I love family movies, some of my favourites are family movies, such as Disney, Pixar, movies like The Wizard of Oz, The Secret Garden, A Little Princess, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, ET, Black Beauty and The Black Stallion. Zookeeper just isn't my idea of a good family movie that's all.

Larry Crowne is not a bad movie, per se. Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts afford their roles well. Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Wilmer Valderrama, Pam Grier, Bryan Cranston, George Takei, Taraji P. Henson, Cedric the Entertainer and the rest of the supporting players back them up admirably and flesh out the world this takes place in. The script keeps itself light, breezy and moves along. There are also quite a few laughs. While not of the raucous, belly laughing variety, the setups and punch-lines never failed t...

The performances were all good and some very good, Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw occasionally came across as goofy for a villain but showed his worth when he needed to be threatening especially once the third act came along. James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender did very well together and had a brilliant rapport. I thought it would have been difficult to replicate this given the chemistry that Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen had in the X-Men trilogy.

At first sight, Hesher looks like one of those "indie" dramas which draw attention for including some famous actors in the cast, whose participation is maybe due to the fact they want to prove that they have not been changed by success, and that they keep being artists interested in the art itself. On some way, that is an appropriate description of the film; but leaving that prejudice against artistic pretensions aside, Hesher is an excellent movie with a fascinating screenplay whose narrative f...

Before you get all up in arms about this being a Will Ferrell movie, just stop right there. This is more along the lines of Stranger Than Fiction than Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby or Step Brothers. It's not zany, wacky or crazy in any way. It's a more subdued, lighthearted drama with some elements of comedy sprinkled throughout. It's highly enjoyable, funny and sad -- all at the same time.

I'm sure you're familiar with the basic story: retro-futuristic, post-apocalyptic world run by a fascist Catholic theocracy tries to survive after a centuries-long war with vampires nearly destroys mankind. After the war radically changes tides, and the humans win a decisive victory, the Church attempts to forcibly retire their secret weapon, super-powerful monks who can take down vampires easily. But the vampires are back, led by a turned ex-priest, and the Church refuses to accept the reality ...

I know exactly why Bridesmaids was so successful. Women wanted a dirty, raunchy, fun, slapstick, laugh out loud comedy for them, just like guys got The Hangover. Making a film like this would have to be instant gold at the box office and it was!! Why did I dislike it? Well first of all it was completely misrepresented. People that call this the female Hangover are just desperately trying to make themselves believe that. There was no wild and crazy adventure in this film. They get on the airplane...

The motion picture turned out to be spectacular. A bit cheesy, yes, but breathtaking nevertheless. I have yet to see other Branagh's work as director (I'm planning to), but I imagine he had quite a task on his hands. This is not an easy film to make. He had to appeal to both die-hard Thor comic fans and casual movie-goers (like myself). I think he managed quite well. Don't forget, he had to film it in a way that wouldn't make you sick when watching the film in 3D, which means carefully choosing ...
