Red Lights

December 2, 2012 by  

Red Lights stars Cillian Murphy and Sigourney Weaver as investigators of paranormal activity.  Robert DeNiro stars as Silver, a man who has become rich and famous because of his so called “paranormal” abilities.  DeNiro is always great and he’s why I watched this movie to begin with.  There is a great twist at the end that I saw coming but not until about halfway through.  I would definitely recommend it.

The Raven

October 25, 2012 by  

John Cusack is one of my favorite actors.  He is wonderful in this film.  He plays  with very subtle nods to Poe’s intelligence and odd demeanor.  The story tells of how Poe is contacted by the police to help them solve the case of a serial killer who is klling women based on Poe’s stories.  The film attempts to explain the reason why Poe was found sitting on a park bench in someone else’s clothes.  There are also stories that … Continue reading

The Cabin in the Woods

September 25, 2012 by  

This is a Joss Whedon film.  Five friends go out to the cabin in the woods and bad things begin to happen. Of course they do.  I don’t watch the films where people go to a cabin in the woods and live happily ever after.  Too boring.  This movie is worth the time to watch it.  One of the bonuses is Sigourney Weaver has a part near the end.  She’s great.  If you like scary movies with a twist, you’ll … Continue reading

Margin Call

August 2, 2012 by  

This is one of the best movies I’ve seen in years.  Kevin Spacey and Jeremy Irons are two of my all-time favorite actors.  They are both exceptionally amazing in this film along with a dynamic cast of supporting actors.  The film centers on a Wall Street firm’s buying and selling of stocks.  This is a subject completely foreign to me but I was able to keep up because near the beginning of the film, Jeremy Iron’s asks the man to explain … Continue reading

Man on a Ledge

If you like Sam Worthington, you’ll love this movie.  If you don’t, then you’ll probably be happier to just pass on this one.  I’m sure it was meant to be a suspenseful, drama-filled theatrical event, but if that is the case then they missed by several Manhattan hotel floors.  It’s advertised as a man on a rooftop.  Hello.  It’s called Man on a Ledge.  The audience should be allowed to wonder why this man has wandered upon the ledge to … Continue reading

Avengers Assemble!

May 27, 2012 by  

According to all the broken box office records, the entire US population has seen this movie in the theater at least 3 times. It pulled in a staggering $207 million the first weekend, and without the benefit of a holiday. That number changes the face of summer box office completely. Critics are talking about this movie like it’s the rapture. For some, it probably is a religious experience. Click here for a collection of reviews. On the other side, you … Continue reading
