Here are some great songs that happen to have fantastic endings. …

Well, folks, another Oscar ceremony come and gone, and a film that actually deserved to win Best Picture won for once. (Unfortunately, I had to sit through four hours of bullsh*t to see it happen.) However, as always, some films got left out of the Oscar pool that deserved recognition, and even some films that did get nominations didn't get enough love. Here are a few films I saw last year that deserved a lot more love than they got. …

There are two moments in my life I remember most. The first took place in high school: during a computer class, I was looking up pictures of the Libertines while at the same time listening to one of their songs. A black girl sitting next to me saw what I was doing, and she asked me, "Are you white?" I was a bit taken aback, but I answered, "No." She replied,…Continue
(UPDATE: I made a few changes to this review. Nothing major, just added and took out a few words to make it flow better. Also, I got rid of the rating which was originally a 2 out of 5. I've lightened up on the film since this review was originally written; it's hard to hate a film as well-made as this.)

When I first saw the trailer for Premium Rush, I immediately thought of Run Lola Run, a German film about a woman running around Berlin trying to find money to pay off her boyfriend's debt. The movie was simple, action-packed, fast-paced, and driven by its pounding soundtrack. While Premium Rush may not have the pounding soundtrack, it’s just as…

Theaters are for loud, dumb action movies about people going on an adventure! In IMAX! In 3D! Not long boring dramas with abrupt endings! Journey 2: The Mysterious Island is a perfect example of this.
Following the events of Journey to the Center of the Earth (which I haven’t seen), young Sean Anderson (Josh…Continue

You know, one thing I thought about while watching this movie is, “This movie is totally unrealistic; I wouldn’t act this crazy if I had superpowers.” But the more I thought about it, I realized not only would I totally react the same way, but the only unrealistic thing about the movie is that superpowers exist (and the fact that the characters film everything,…Continue

WARNING: THIS REVIEW CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS.
I love this movie!
I’m surprised I liked it as much as I did; judging by the trailer I thought this would just be about Liam Neeson being a badass in the snow. Turns out, this is a character movie about a bunch of…Continue
