Miami Vice

I have to admit, I wanted to like it more but no matter what, it's ten times better than Collateral. Script is mildly compelling. Besides the look, the Li Gong/Colin…

Monster House!

Two weeks ago, it was 1978. Last night, it became the mid 80's. Monster House is the best 80's Amblin movie never made. I had high hopes for this movie.…

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…

Bittersweet Life

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%…

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 =…

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…
