I Wouldn’t Say It Was The Worst Oscars Ever…

In remembrance of the late, great actors who hosted the 83rd Annual Academy Awards a few nights ago, I wanted to pay homage to them via movie reviews.  But then I was told, although they totally bombed a few nights ago, they are actually still alive.  I figured, in that case, let’s honor them by … Continue reading I Wouldn’t Say It Was The Worst Oscars Ever…

“You’re not an asshole, but you’re trying so hard to be”: The Social Network

I feel an almost irrepressible urge to go out and buy some pacifiers.  Jesse Eisenberg's giant pouty lips are so overwhelming in this film, I can't help but be reminded of a newborn baby when they still have that quiver thing going on with their bottom lip that just makes you want to squeeze their … Continue reading “You’re not an asshole, but you’re trying so hard to be”: The Social Network

“Give him the kick”: Inception

I'm sure "real" movie critics have a lot of arguments against the supposed greatness of this film.  They always do.  They can suck my balls.  This movie was awesome. All I knew going into it was that everyone seemed completely mindfucked by the film, and "It's about dreams."  Well, that's helpful.  If you are still … Continue reading “Give him the kick”: Inception

Blast from the past: Quiz Show

All in … Continue reading Blast from the past: Quiz Show

“I’m washing my hands, man”: Witness

My final assignment to the film Witness.  In an earlier post I expressed the idea that I may want to watch the film again to give it another shot.  After re-reading this, I now remember exactly why I didn't like it, and why I won't be watching it again.  To add to what you're about … Continue reading “I’m washing my hands, man”: Witness

“I think I chipped my favorite tooth”: The Princess and the Frog

Sarah Friesz, we can be friends again.  I have finally seen The Princess and the Frog. I liked it.  Maybe a lot.  But I think I had too high of hopes for this movie.  It's no Beauty and the Beast, but then again, what is?  Well, The Lion King was, sort of. As oddly realistic … Continue reading “I think I chipped my favorite tooth”: The Princess and the Frog
