Transformers: Age of Extinction (movie review)

Why do I keep doing this to myself? Why do I keep watching these movies? Morbid curiosity, I guess. This time, I saw it for free on a plane, so that’s not much of a sacrifice on my part, and I guess this Transformers movie is better than the other ones, but that’s not saying much.

I told my dog there are going to be three more Avatar movies – here's his reaction

“Hey Conny, guess what?!? There’s going to be three more Avatar movies!”

Aliens (movie review)

FOX wanted to get a sequel to 1979’s Alien out right away, but it didn’t happen until director/screenplay writer James Cameron got it out there in 1986. It was worth the wait! Read the rest of this entry

I told my dog there was going to be a fifth Transformers movie – here's his reaction

“Hey Rocky, guess what?!? There’s going to be a fifth Transformers movie!”

If you don't study, "You shall not pass!"

Gandalf reminds kids that they need to study to do well at school in the only way he knows how.

In case it is not already clear, Sir Ian McKellen is an international treasure. He should have a secret service detail… well, maybe we can get him better protection than that.

Alien (movie review)

Alien is, for me, both the sum of its predecessors as well as the template from which many movies have copied. I guess that’s a complicated way of saying it’s easy to see its influences as well as who the movie influenced after its release. Or, let’s just say it’s a great movie. Read the rest of this entry

Tucker & Dale vs. Evil (movie review)

Besides being an entertaining film in its own right, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil is an excellent “it’s kinda like [insert movie title here]” movie, because you can insert five different movie titles in the blank. Read the rest of this entry

Meg Ryan Can’t Stop Singing in Movies

Is it just me, or does Meg Ryan sing in a disproportionate amount of her roles than one would assume? That lady likes to sing! I feel like she has a contract rider that encourages the production team to try to work some singing for her. I bet it read something like, “Ms. Ryan shall be featured as a vocalist for no fewer than four measures…” or something like that!

“Jingle Bells” from Sleepless in Seattle
This is obviously not the most inspiring singing performance, but once she gets passed the “horses” bit, she lays it on fairly thick.

The LEGO Movie (movie review)

Like all art, opinions on The LEGO Movie are entirely subjective. The thing is, almost everyone seems to think it’s a great movie while there are few detractors. Rhett Bartlett (Dial M for Movies) called it "one of the great film disappointments of this decade." That’s going too far for me – my opinion falls closer to the middle of the spectrum.

Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie (movie review)

On Friday, August 8th, 2014 at 7:30 PM, we saw the  much-anticipated Angry Video Game Nerd:  The Movie (screening dates) with a full house of raging Nerd Heads.  The flick has been in production for several years now, so expectations were high and enthusiasm boundless as the lights dimmed and the picture popped onto the screen at the Sharp Theater.  Would the fans get what they want, or would they go home disappointed?  I was predicting the former, but you never can tell how these independent productions are going to turn out.  Ready for anything, I settled into my balcony seat and watched the movie roll.   Read the rest of this entry
