If it's crap ... We'll tell you
A good movie review should both entertain and inform, providing an opinion of a movie without giving away too much of the plot. Here's how to share your insights in a way that will both effectively convey your own thoughts and be compelling to your audience.
Take notes on the movie as you watch it. Before you sit down to watch a film, get out a notepad or a laptop to take notes. Movies are long, and you can easily forget details or major plot points. Taking…Continue
(Another black dude in a white people drama)
The opening credits are fun to look at but there’s something missing like someone stealing from a DVD store or someone raping other people. I find the entire premise impossible but very interesting. The first 20…Continue

Apologies for this getting up later than usual. Unexpected business trip earlier this week put us behind. This episode we remember the great James Gandolfini. We also discuss a man who reeeeally hates cheese on his Wendy's burger, brain farting at a beauty pageant, flying with Jet Blue, and email.…Continue
(James Franco is high, thinking he’s all powerful and shit)
Let me start by saying that I last watched The Wizard of Oz when I was a kid and I somehow forgot it so bear with me. Some may not like its predictability and hit-miss narrations but I…Continue

(Oh I blame the guy who altered the time continuum for killing MJ and ruining this generation)
So it’s been almost a decade since I last saw these classics. Part I surprisingly entertained me more today. I don’t fantasize about Lea Thompson (Lorraine) before. But DAMN! She just became one of my most adored actresses.
Part I – 5/5

If you have an on-demand cable system or use redbox or any type of early or automated DVD or Movie rental system, then you might be aware of a deceptive growing trend that I am going to call "Movie Rental Spoofing". This tactic has been used for several years now and until recently I have never been fooled by it, until my Hansel & Gretel rental using the REDBOX rental service.
Here is what "they" do in an effort to TRICK you out of your money and mind! When a popular title is…Continue

(Suit Up or Die Hard)
Avengers set the bar high for all superhero movies. IM3 had a lot of shoes to fill and questions to answer. I won’t spoil anything big because knowing a lot will surely ruin your viewing experience but don’t expect any Avenger in here. So I’ll just…Continue
(Live free or die hard and live again)
The series started in a bad way, for me, with a lot of talking and white people drama. But this season got it all right with its good setting, storyline and a kick-ass villain. This…Continue

(Oh Bruce... you ruined Evan’s career once again)
The intro with the kids made me want to see more of them instead of the adults. It’s a Will Farrell movie with no adlibs and no super outrageous moments, and that’s not good. The story is…Continue

I got hooked on Monster films after watching the 1931 frankenstein... Not the first Frankenstein film, but the first full-on Hollywood treatment of Mary Shelley's classic book. Brilliantly directed by James Whale, Frankenstein is in fact the name of the mad scientist and monster-maker. Then unknown, Boris Karloff plays the nameless monster, who manages to evoke sympathy from the audience despite his grotesque form, hideous face and shocking violence.
After that James Van Elswyk was…Continue

After long anticipation that we can finally and truly return to the land of Oz that was created for the silver screen back in 1939. Oz: The Great and Powerful does it in away that satisfy your hunger before tonight’s…Continue

Rating-Full Price!! Rise of the Planet of the Apes blows away most of the science-fiction films of the past two decades. With its brilliant script that goes to places other science fiction films have either been too afraid to go to or have done wrong. It also features the best visual effects since James Cameron's Avatar, along with terrific performances from everyone, especially Andy Serkis as the chimp Cesar. Rise of the Planet of the Apes is the best entry in the…Continue

Rating-(High)Full Price!! I'm not really much of a Star Trek fan (I saw like one season of TNG and some of the movies), but hot damn was this movie fucking badass. During one of the worst summer movie seasons in cinematic history (2009) Star Trek came out and blew audiences and critics away, and for very good reason. It is one of the best summer movies ever and if you call yourself a fan of sci-fi you must see this, and if you love a fun action movie you must see…Continue

Right from it's thunderous opening and its majestic title sequence (Preformed wonderfully by Adele), I could tell that this was an evolved James Bond, I was in for a treat of a film that could be an easy contender for best film of the year, for me at least.…Continue

The biggest part of the magic of movies is its ability to transport us wherever it wants us to go as we willingly give up a couple of hours of our life to see worlds that none have experienced or seen before. 3-D is commonly used nowadays as a way to grab the audience and say that they can be that much closer to the…Continue

After half a century of being one of the most indelible characters in pop culture across the globe, it's only appropriate to ask whether or not James Bond is relevant even to the world of cyber-terrorism. Bond has gone through quite a lot over the years and he's the only iconic character that has consistently lasted…Continue

For once, the actual author of the story set out to make his version of the story on film the definitive one! Not only that but Chbosky manages to convince anyone that his version of the story and its characters in this film should be the only version to be made. It's one of those rare films that…Continue

For every dozen sequels that aren’t as good as their originals, there comes a badass flick like Aliens that not only is as good as alien, but better in every category.
The Story of Aliens is that Ripley, still haunted and traumatized after the events of the…Continue
