Nixon

Posted : 10 years, 10 months ago on 20 February 2007 07:46 (A review of Nixon)

Oliver Stone's Nixon is a visual historical masterpiece depicting a time period of political turmoil inside the United States. Anthony Hopkins turns in one of his best performance and stands above a star studded cast. Quite long, but well done.

Crouching Tig....Wait, what?

Posted : 10 years, 10 months ago on 20 February 2007 07:41 (A review of House of Flying Daggers)

The love and war premise that feels like every other recent martial arts film is well apparent in the House of Flying Daggers. The action was elegant and graceful, but unfortunately the story could not provide enough support for all its beauty.

General's Daughter

Posted : 10 years, 10 months ago on 17 February 2007 08:09 (A review of The General's Daughter)

Hard to believe this is a mystery, considering all the cards are laid out on the table from the blossoming start. Or are they? Cheap twists couldn't save another Travolta bomb.

Michael

Posted : 10 years, 10 months ago on 17 February 2007 08:06 (A review of Michael)

This is that phase of John Travolta's career that everyone refers to that his role in Pulp Fiction saved, but wait, this came two years after the Tarrantino classic? What was Travolta thinking? Maybe he realized that he gets more credit for the good roles he chooses by blinding everyone with the bad ones. PS, this movie sucks. I mean, Andie MacDowell + William Hurt = zero chemistry.

Blue Steel

Posted : 10 years, 10 months ago on 17 February 2007 07:59 (A review of Blue Steel)

Words could not describe how bad this movie is...or at least why it was longer than an episode of Law & Order. Seriously, the last hour of the movie features a surprisingly sexy Jamie Lee Curtis being played by Ron Silver in a twisted game of cat and mouse. Ron Silver plays a great character, but the movie fails to support him.

Bury This Film in a Grave

Posted : 10 years, 10 months ago on 17 February 2007 07:50 (A review of Cradle 2 the Grave)

Why does DMX insist that he can act? And why does Hollywood continue to let him believe he can. The acting is so bad and the action looks like it was made from the budget of a 1990s "made-for-tv" movie. Hey DMX, what's your name? Try bad actor.

An Instant Classic

Posted : 10 years, 10 months ago on 17 February 2007 07:41 (A review of The Departed)

There isn't much speculation here why this film has been nominated for so many Oscars this year. Truly one of the best gangster films I have seen delivered by the master, Martin Scorsese. A power packed cast provided all drama that made this an instant classic. From Jack Nicholson to Leonardo DiCaprio, from Mark Wahlberg to Matt Damon, the characters truly captured the essence of a Scorsese film.

Cheap Laughs

Posted : 10 years, 10 months ago on 11 February 2007 09:51 (A review of Hot Shots!)

Out of respect to this spoof cult classic, I think I was being a little generous with my star rating...Cheap laughs, combined with a thin plot leave this one far from the stature of a Naked Gun, but in the end, it remains a reference in the spoof genre.

Ingredients for Unsuccess

Posted : 10 years, 10 months ago on 4 February 2007 07:38 (A review of Meet the Fockers)

Two ways to ruin a successful original...1. add Dustin Hoffman; 2. add Barbara Streisand. Come on, Babs? I honestly couldn't get passed them.

Magnolia

Posted : 10 years, 10 months ago on 4 February 2007 07:35 (A review of Magnolia)

A cheap attempt to use Quentin Tarantino's script equivalent to Pulp Fiction, in a more dramatic setting. By the times the paths finally crossed, I think I was asleep. It is too bad Magnolia came out the same year as American Beauty, or else it might have had a better following.
