*** Spoiler-free review *** Last night I saw the movie Gravity with my 11-year old daughter on a glorious IMAX screen in 3D. We left the theater completely amazed at what we had seen and rated our movie going experience … Continue reading Why You Should See Gravity NOW!
It’s VERY difficult to write a spoiler-free review of this movie. If you’re really interested in seeing this film, I suggest that you do NOT see the trailer. Unfortunately, it really spoils a lot of this movie. When I saw … Continue reading Spoiler-free Review of Oblivion
Last night I saw Evil Dead to a packed house. This movie is a remake of the 1981 version, directed by a then unknown director, Sam Raimi and a young actor by the name of Bruce Campbell. In the 32 … Continue reading Evil Dead Review
So tonight I saw G.I. Joe: Retaliation, the sequel to the 2009 film, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra in 3D. I went to the movie with my 11-year old daughter, my friend, his 10-year old son and teenage daughter. I … Continue reading G.I. Joe: Retaliation Review
Today is my daughter’s 11th birthday so after treating her to brunch at IHOP’s and doing a little shopping with her, we caught the animated movie, The Croods in 3D. I wasn’t really expecting much from the movie to be … Continue reading The Croods Movie Review
(*** be warned, SPOILER alert! ***) I loved the first Iron Man movie. I went in knowing that it was going to be a sure hit. I was surprised at how many people didn’t know much about the character at the time of the movie’s premiere (but us insiders knew very well). Robert Downey, Jr. was perfectly cast as Tony Stark and John Favreau’s direction was nothing short of brilliant (who knew that the “serious clown” in Seinfeld would become such a big name Hollywood director?). Coming in to see Iron Man 2, I was a little dubious and fearful … Continue reading Iron Man 2 Loses Some of its Luster
The 1981 remake of Clash of Titans finally hit theaters this weekend and I’m already predicting that it will be the number 1 movie dominating the box office. It will do well not because it’s yet another 3D movie released this year nor because Sam Worthington is in it (a 3D “veteran” already with Avatar under his belt). I think this movie will do well because we all love a good yarn involving the battle between man and the gods. It’s filled with action, mythical monsters and high adventure. The theater I went to was packed with many enthusiastic movie-goers … Continue reading Release the Kraken!
I went to see Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes on New Year’s Day while my daughter attended a birthday party at the mall. I will readily admit that I’ve never read nor seen a Sherlock Holmes story – ever. I grew up knowing about this legendary sleuth and saw commercials on TV regarding old black and white movies and tv shows, particularly the ones shown on BBC. It’s not that I didn’t like the character. For some reason, I just couldn’t relate to him. Something about how he was always portrayed on screen or on book covers that I didn’t find … Continue reading Not your father’s Sherlock Holmes
