Sharks in Venice DVD Cover

by Wendell WeeksComments (1)

So I’m a little bit tipsy after some end of the workweek drinks with the boys, and as my wife’s out of town, I decide to stop by the Blockbuster on my way home and pick up a couple of movies she likely would not be interested in seeing (yes, that’s how crazy I get [...]

Vicky Cristina Barcelona

by Stephanie SegalNo comments

Disclaimer: One might expect a biased review from me here because I have much affection for Woody Allen and several of his works. I am in no way an aficionado, but I do go in to one of his films with expectations: I expect quality writing and acting.
Disclaimer B: Generally I [...]

Righteous Kill

by Stephanie SegalNo comments

In Righteous Kill Al Pacino and Robert De Niro play partners of 30 plus years in the NYPD. Somewhere in the 90 some odd minutes the question of their potential impending retirement from the force is raised. Their characters show little interest in it. I have advice for Pacino and De Niro [...]

The Rocker

by Stephanie SegalNo comments

Under this roof Dwight Schrute (come on, The Office! Rainn Wilson! Thursday night! Tune in!) is much beloved. Because of this, and my husband’s dedication to comedy no matter how seemingly silly, The Rocker, featuring Rainn Wilson, was a no escape must-see for me, despite my reservations. I was thinking Jack Black called and wants his performance from School of Rock back. I feared Rockstar with Mark Wahlberg bad. But I love my husband and who doesn’t love hot popcorn? So it was a date.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

by Wendell WeeksNo comments

I reveal plot points in this review, so if you’re going to go see it, you’ve been warned. But really, the warning you should heed is to skip the film altogether.
As I biked across DC to catch a late afternoon showing of the film at the historic Uptown Theater, I had, in the back of [...]

Magnolia

by Merrill MatthewsNo comments

“Three hours?” “My ass was asleep the whole time.” “It’s too depressing.” “What’s up with the end?”
(Actual comments from people leaving movie theatres after seeing “Magnolia“.)
I have dubbed myself a “Magnolia” fanatic. I have seen this film FOUR times. “Magnolia” is a brilliant film. Along with “American Beauty“, “Fight Club” and “Dogma“, “Magnolia” is the [...]

Iron Giant

by Michel VranaNo comments

When director Frank Darabont’s The Shawshank Redemption was released in theatres, it didn’t do that well at all, despite glowing reviews from all manner of critics. Chalk it up to poor marketing, heavy box-office competition, or just plain bad luck; this fine film just didn’t draw in the number of moviegoers that it ought to [...]

The Messenger

by Warren WilanskyNo comments

After a long day’s work, I’m not usually in the mood to go see a movie. And since I work all the time, it seems my anti-movie mood is common. Truth is, I don’t really see all that many movies. It probably doesn’t help that my attention span has dwindled to nil, thanks to multi-tasking [...]

Sixth Sense

by Stephanie SegalNo comments

This is a movie I expected not to like. As a rule, I don’t like Bruce Willis’ films. This may stem from the fact that I promised myself I would stop throwing money away on testosterone fests like Die Hard. Add to this that the movie trailer for the 6th Sense annoyed me. It was [...]
