Latest Movie Reviews
Like Harry Potter and Twilight before it — The Hunger Games has captured the zeitgeist of the hormonal and alienated youth of America through its use of a strong but relatable protagonist, an improbable love sub-plot, and a visceral action set piece with life-and-death stakes.
Though Henson is long gone, his gentle – and genuine – spirit inhabits every frame of The Muppets, somehow watching over his creations and imbuing the film with magic that made Kermit and the gang feel like their old selves for the first time since his untimely death in 1990.
While it’s heads and shoulders above similar Old-west meets technology disasters like Wild Wild West and Jonah Hex, Cowboys & Aliens is a mildly entertaining clash of clichés rather than a compelling mixture of genres.
Captain America: The First Avenger more than lives up to expectations and is everything you could want in a rollicking Saturday afternoon popcorn adventure.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II is a film that filled me with indifference. It’s a two-hour climax that, more often than not, feels frustratingly anti-climactic.
This third installment is not so much a movie as it is a two and a half hour assault on the senses; an un-checked display of empty bombast and juvenile humor that bludgeons the audience into dazed, slack-jawed submission.
Joyless, disjointed, and dull – Green Lantern suffers from a terribly written screenplay, and a narrative that beats the audience senseless with another tedious origin story.
