Let the Right One In »

“Let the Right One In” is one of the finest films I’ve ever had the pleasure of watching. It’s a beautiful, serene experience that will chill you to the bone while warming your heart with those fuzzy feelings of young love.

Milk »

“Milk” is no doubt Van Sant’s best film since 1997’s “Good Will Hunting,” though without Sean Penn’s award-worthy performance, I doubt it would amount to more than your average biographical feature.

Even if you have no interest in the subject matter, “Milk” is an inspiring and important motion picture that should be seen. It’s a film everyone can take something positive from, and in this day and age, that is a rarity in itself.

The Happening [Blu-Ray] »

Though the Blu-Ray is, obviously, a step-up from the normal SD release this one still doesn’t pack as much punch as it should have. There’s enough detail but it’s very light on clarity. Better is the DTS HD master audio track which’ll see the sounds whistle – um, er, cos, well, most of the sound is wind – beautifully through the speakers.

Zack and Miri Make a Porno »

The chemistry between Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks is what makes this movie worth seeing. Banks is really coming into her own as of late and it’s only a matter of time until she breaks out and finds her place as a genuine leading lady. Craig Robinson, who has appeared in “Knocked Up” and more recently, “Pineapple Express,” is refreshingly funny as Delaney and hey, even Justin Long steals a few scenes.

The Secret Life of Bees

The Secret Life of Bees »

“The Secret Life of Bees” is a touching film that earns its tears and heartfelt sentiment honestly. The performances elicit real emotion, and though some elements of the script travel through well-worn territory, it’s an entertaining and affecting work. Those looking for award-winning cinematography or brilliant direction will probably find this film underwhelming and a little on the sappy side. While that honey-dipped sweetness might leave some art snobs disappointed, others will find “The Secret Life of Bees” is rich in heart and love.

W »

It’s an entertaining look back at one of the most controversial presidencies in the history of the United States. It isn’t earth-shattering, but the performances will stick with you – and who knows, maybe 10 or 15 years from now “W.” will be seen as a divisive, epic piece of cinema – but it’s too soon to tell, we’re all still living out the story already in progress.

Quarantine »

“Quarantine” is a tedious, predictable, sad excuse for a horror film made for the Hot Topic generation. It’s a shame that hollow, empty remakes like this, based solely on gimmick over story, flourish in today’s horror market while films like Mike Dougherty’s “Trick ‘r Treat” struggle to find distribution from big studios who would rather push 34 “Saw” sequels down our throats.

”The Rocker” is so sweet and sugary it will give you a toothache. It’s squeaky-clean, totally harmless and so completely non-edgy. Unfortunately, it just isn’t that funny.
