Film Review: Silence

Silence sees Martin Scorsese wrestling with faith, what it means to have it, how it affects those around us, how it can feel like it has betrayed you, and the results are compelling and thought provoking.

Film Review: Taken 2

Maybe it’s just me, but personally a title to a film leaves a big impression, which is why I wasn’t that excited for this sequel.  Taken 2?  Really?  We couldn’t get more creative than that?  It doesn’t need to be anything ridiculous, like Taken 2 the Bowels of Istanbul or Stop Taken My Family, though […]

HST… Film Review: Battleship

Lauren:  I have to admit something right now, as a child I got really competitive when it came to Battleship.  Each time I would swear I came up with the best distribution for my ships to trick my opponent, and would gleefully laugh in my mind when I would get to put a white peg […]

Film Review: Wrath of the Titans

2010’s Clash of the Titans may not be the best film by far, but for a blockbuster with quite the action and visual effects filled center, it is a movie I honestly don’t get sick of watching when I just want to get lost in something.  With this base and quite the exciting trailer, Wrath […]

Review: Unknown

Unknown is an interesting and well made film that shows it’s cards maybe a bit too soon and doesn’t take full advantage of the doors it opens. Liam Neeson stars as Dr. Martin Harris who is visiting an agro-business summit in Berlin when he is involved car crash.  Waking up four days after the accident, […]

Review: The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

The new Narnia has left the mouse house and landed at Fox (and in 3D) and the results are a clumsy adventure that takes more than a couple steps back from the very good Prince Caspian. Dropping the two older Pevensie siblings and replacing them with their annoying cousin (who’s name sounds like useless, which […]

Review: The Next Three Days

Paul Haggis’ prison break thriller delivers a great final act but fails to make us care about the characters at all in the film’s preceding two acts essentially neutering the emotional impact of the film. The film is finely acted, has a very intriguing premise in the reverse jail break, and is pretty clever in […]

Now Playing Review – The A-Team

Devo advised to whip a problem when it came along, but I am not Indiana Jones.  Instead I would much rather take the advice of the narrator in the A-Team, because calling them in when a debacle arises just seems way cooler. Based on the 1980s TV series, this incarnation starts with the introduction of […]

Review: The A-Team

The latest TV adaptation, The A-Team, gets 3 great actors and one unproven one together with a director that can shoot some action and the results is an almost non-stop action flick with paper thin characters and a weak plot that is quite a lot of fun. The A-Team is a group of rangers who […]
