No Points for Bugs

To start this post, I want to share a bit of dialogue between two characters in the 1987 movie The Princess Bride after their repeated attempts to foil the main character (in this case, after cutting a rope he was climbing).  This esoteric reference  demonstrates how completely...

The Wind that Shakes the Barley

Wow! What an incredible movie! This is a story about two brothers who take up arms against the British during the Irish War of Independence and how they then become involved in the Irish Civil War that follows. It is a very sad movie and I imagine quite representative (I...

G.I. Joe – Rise of Cobra

This was a ridiculous movie, but in a good way.  The plot, acting and special effects were so over-the-top.  It is the sort of movie you have to watch when you are in the mood for big explosions, silly costumes, stilted dialogue and want to kill some time with mindless...

Transformers – Revenge of the Fallen

If I told you a movie would have more robots, more explosion and more fighting, you’d say “sequel”.  But what if I told you the movie also dropped all the affable charm, humor and innocence of the first movie?  You’d probably skip the film.  Or you’d...

Vicky Christina Barcelona

  After sitting around on our coffee table for about two weeks, we finally took the time to watch Vicky Christina Barcelona.  This was a very thoughtful romantic comedy and I enjoyed it for many reasons.  One, it dealt with complex relationships in a mature and honest manner...

The Happening

I watched this film the other night after it had been sitting around on my coffee table for at least a week (I am so swamped right now).  M. Night Shyamalan definitely understands how to tell a suspenseful story – put broken people in a bewildering, disorienting situation...

Lost Boys: The Tribe

This movie shows everything that is wrong with Hollywood – I think the only people who would be pleased with this movie would be 15-year-old teenage boys.  They so ripped off Supernatural, all the way down to the creaking sound of the dog opening – so lame!  Oh, Corey...

Forgetting Sarah Marshall

I liked this romantic comedy.  I normally do not like these types of movies, but it was recommended by a friend and I am glad I watched it.  It was a thoughtful, adult movie about a guy who gets his heart “broken in a million pieces” and how he moves on.  The dinner scene is...

Quantum of Solace

Saw this movie on Friday when everyone was out shopping (or shooting themselves – you take your pick).  I really enjoy Daniel Craig as the latest incarnation of James Bond and like the physical aspect of this Bond.  There are very few gadgets and these movies tend to be...

Indiana Jones & Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

This movie was barely watchable, I wish I had those 2 hours back.   Talk about milking a franchise to the very end!   I mean, how old is Harrison Ford these days?  When you have a head full of gray hair, its time to hang up the bullwhip and fedora.  Oh, and how much money did...
