Spider-Man 2 is probably this summer’s most anticipated blockbuster and for this reviewers buck Spider-Man 2 simply RULES!!

Perhaps one of the least expected sequels, Before Sunset, is a welcome surprise to the onslaught of comic book, epic action packed, sci-fi sequels of recent years.

Fahrenheit 9/11

Fahrenheit 9/11

| June 29, 2004

I imagine other writers around the country are finding it difficult to review Fahrenheit 9/11 without their personal politics coming into play. The film is unapologetically political and proudly one-sided. My reactions to the film as political participant vary greatly to mine as a movie reviewer. But I imagine most come to this site to […]

Meltdown

Meltdown

| June 27, 2004

When swearing an oath to this country there is a phrase, “all enemies foreign and domestic.” This assumes that attacks can come from within as well as without. In the fx network original movie Meltdown, we see how potentially easy it would be to have an attack on the United States without a bomb being […]

Fahrenheit 9/11

Fahrenheit 9/11

| June 27, 2004

Back in 1999, I sat in a movie theater fuming… I was promised the scariest movie of all time and it sucked. I hated The Blair Witch Project so much that I wrote a review and sent it around to all my friends. That’s how I landed this gig with FilmMonthly.com and have been extremely […]

Nate and the Colonel

Nate and the Colonel

| June 27, 2004

The world of Direct to Video is an interesting place. Sometimes you get a pretty bad story that is well performed which makes it almost watchable if you make some popcorn. But then there are the good stories with bad acting. Those are the ones that cost me lots of time because the wife makes […]

Acne

Acne

| June 27, 2004

They have zits on their head with fully bursting and oozing puss! In this wildly bizarre feature film, director Rusty Nails gives us a fully punk influenced horror/sci-fi, black and white, B-movie, about teenagers and their acne problem. However, their acne problem is a lot more complicated than we all endured, unless you’re that kid […]

I’ll Bury You Tomorrow

I’ll Bury You Tomorrow

| June 25, 2004

I’ll Bury You Tomorrow is a V-chip shattering tale of murder, mystery and–oh boy–necrophilia! It’s like a cross between Six Feet Under and Psycho, as directed by Sam Raimi with a cast picked by John Waters. Delores (Zoe Daelman Chlanda), a mysterious young woman, steps off a train in the dreary town of Port Oram […]
