THE ROAD TO GUANTANAMO

Michael Winterbottom is trying to set a record or something. He turns out two films a year. And besides 9 Songs, which I think is a pathetic piece of nothing, all of his projects are thought provoking, timely, technical achievements..usually lacking a little on an emotional level but still worthy of some sort of praise. […]

Wassup Rockers

Larry Clark is one of those directors, like Spike Lee and Woody Allen, that deserves our $10.50 no matter what because they have produced such great work in the past and even if their new stuff is a let-down, there will still be one or two classic scenes in every film. That being said, I […]

Heart is Deceitful Above All Things

Good for Asia Argento. What a vast improvement from her first film Scarlett Diva. Not a wonderful film because it is obvious that she is going for shock value the entire time. And it keeps us from really believing the situation and characters. Acting is great though. Cinematography is gorgeous. And the film is full […]

Edward Scissorhands: Retro Review

Edward Scissorhands was always one of those movies that I remembered not liking for some reason. I couldn’t put my finger on it, but I knew that the last time I saw it, something was wrong. So recently, I re-watched the film and was taken away to a unique time and place in a manner […]

Bittersweet Life

Wow..what an effing let down. People are calling this the best action film of 2005. Well, I guess that’s not saying much because I can’t remember any action films from last year. Anyway, I just saw this as part of NYC’s Asian Film Festival. It’s been getting plenty of hype as the best thing since […]

Vanishing Point

Why doesn’t this film have the classic status of Easy Rider? I have no idea. Just as deep in its socio-political commentary. It did come out two years later so I guess you can’t call it as original as Hopper’s film but still it deserves more attention. Ex-cop Kowalski works for a car delivery service […]

The Proposition

I wish I posted this earlier because it’s already been in theaters for a few weeks. But all’s not lost…you can still catch it….because this is a big screen film. See it no matter what but try, try, try to see it on the silver screen. This is an Australian western that takes place at […]

Survive Style 5

I’ve been very bad. Very lazy. I haven’t posted in weeks. But I’ll catch up over the next couple of days. Anyway, I was inspired to write this tonight because I just finished watching a new, incredibly original Japanese film called Survive Style 5. Imagine “Short Cuts” in a bizarre fantasy world. The world is […]

DanViews—X-Men

I’ve tried to write this piece for some time and have not been able to articulate properly, but here goes… Understand that though I have a brain full of useless pop culture information, I never soaked up comic books as a kid aside from a subscription to the 80s series of Batman Detective Comics, a […]

X-Men 3: The Last Stand

This review will have mild spoilers, and I will be posting major spoilers in the comments. Consider yourself warned. Going into this movie, I admit, I was concerned. The 52% Tomatometer rating made me wonder if Brett Ratner had wrecked what Bryan Singer had established with the first two films. There are rough spots, mainly […]

Mini’s First Time

Alec Baldwin finds out his stepdaughter works for an escort agency. After he sleeps with her. I was there. Unfortunately, the screenplay wasn’t. Jeff Goldblum = Good. Luke WIlson = The Usual. Movie = Bad. Learn more here.

Hatchet.  Bury it.

Saw Hatchet at the Tribeca Film Festival last night. While its intentions of being an 80’s style slasher are good, the film fails on every level. A monumental waste of a premise that COULD have achieved what it set out to, if only not for how unfathomably sloppy the whole thing is thrown together. Shame […]

Calvaire (aka The Ordeal)

This film is kind of a let down because it ends so abruptly that it seems like they simply cut off the last 20 minutes of the film. It has a beautiful look… great casting..menacing style and tone…shot by the cinematography of “Irreversible.” I am just upset because it so close to being great and […]

Meet Mee-Shee!

Of all the films playing at this years Tribeca Film Festival, only one stood out. Only one called my name. All I needed was the title alone to know this was something worthy of getting me out of bed for the 11:15 am screening this past Saturday… Mee-Shee the Water Giant!

Expedition Everest @ Walt Disney World

Back in January, I had the opportunity to face the dangers of Walt Disney World’s newest (and biggest) attraction, Expedition Everest: The Legend of the Forbidden Mountain on the second day of Disney Cast Member Previews. The following was my initial thoughts on the journey…

Natural City

Just when I thought the Koreans could do no wrong… Eckkk. What a boring piece of nothing. This film couldn’t be more of a Blade Runner rip-off. Not an homage..rip-off. A lot of people must have worked very hard.. alot of money and time must have been spent…and it is a pity that this is […]

Golden Venture

Very good. Screened at Tribeca Film Festival. This film is a documentary about the passengers of an immigrant smuggling ship that ran aground near New York City in 1993. Very insightful film that follows 4 passengers and their ongoing struggles to gain citizenship, which of course they have been denied. It’s the type of film […]

The Specials not so special

So for whatever reason, I decided to finally see The Specials . I kinda knew what to expect: low budget, played for yuks, b-list talent… but I thought it would be a little more than what it was – just a bunch of folks with “super powers” talking at one another, dealing with issues and […]
