    ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1′ Review

    For Harry Potter fans, ‘Deathly: Hallows: Part 1′ will be an enjoyable beginning of the end, but casual movie goers may walk away unfulfilled by the experience of only seeing half a story.

  • Due Date

    Due Date Review

    Director Todd Phillips’ ‘Due Date’ is an outrageous comedy that capitalizes on the oddball pairing of Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis. But is it too much of a good thing?

    ‘Welcome to the Rileys’ Review

    ‘Welcome to the Rileys’ is a competent indie drama that offers great performances and an intriguing premise – but still feels a bit too familiar.

    ‘Hereafter’ Review

  • Conviction

    ‘Conviction’ Review

    ‘Conviction’ is an Oscar hopeful tearjerker that is based on an inspiring true story, but plays out like a conventional melodrama – thanks to the lead actors, it’s actually a pretty decent film.

  • Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole

    ‘Legend of the Guardians’ Review

    While ‘Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole’ has a story that manages to be both overly familiar and convoluted, it is visually stunning – gorgeous in color and texture, and effective in its use of 3D.

  • Devil

    ‘Devil’ Review

    ‘Devil’ is a clever and creepy story about good, evil, fate and faith. It also suggests that M. Night Shyamalan’s true talent has always been creative storytelling, not actual filmmaking.

  • Review: Crank

    Review: Crank

    Rating: 3.5 out of 5

    Short version: An insane, bloody, gratuitous, funny rollercoaster of a movie that doesn’t pretend to be anything beyond that

    Jason Statham in CrankGoing in, the one thing I didn’t expect this movie to be was funny. I had more laugh out loud moments during Crank than I did while watching the supposed comedy Clerks II. Before you decide to go see this, be aware that it earns its R-rating on every level: content, situations, language, violence, gore, sex and nudity. (Fine, now everyone will rush out to go see it.)

  • Review: Slither

    Review: Slither

    Rating: 3.5 out of 5

    Short version: Gory and gross, as it should be, but not as funny as it should.

    Slither: I don't feel so good...I was really looking forward to watching Slither. It looked like one of those “wink at the audience” horror flicks, with the sense of humor found in Tremors and great NON-CGI special effects. Plus it starred Nathan Fillion of Serenity, and I’ve become a big fan of his laid back and slightly Southern acting style.

    Now don’t get me wrong, I didn’t hate it, I just didn’t love it.

  • Review: King Kong (2005)

    Review: King Kong (2005)

    Rating: 3.5 out of 5

    Short version: When it’s good, it’s very good, but when it’s not, it feels really, REALLY long.

    King Kong and Naomi WattsWatching Peter Jackson’s version of King Kong, it is abundantly clear that the man feels as strongly about the original 1933 film as he did about Tolkein’s Lord of the Rings books. One can really feel how earnestly he guided this film, paying homage to the original while expanding on it more than just a little bit. Unfortunately the “expansion” is one of the problems with the movie, but I’ll get to that in a bit.

    Review: Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

    By Vic Holtreman

    Rating: 3.5 out of 5

    Short version: With far more strong points than weak, the curse of Episodes I & II has been lifted at last.

    Anakin on his way to the dark sideRedemption.

    No, not for Anakin Skywalker… for George Lucas.

    Although not perfect, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith rises far above the awfulness of Episode I and the mediocrity of Episode II. Time will tell, but for me I think this one will fall right behind The Empire Strikes Back in terms of overall Star Wars excellence. This says a lot considering that I’m in Lucas’ “over 25″ group that was weaned on the original trilogy and thought I & II were pretty awful.
