Norbit

Norbit

| February 9, 2007

There comes a time in every man’s life where he witnesses a film that has the potential to change lives. Norbit is one of those films. As I spent nearly two hours in a dark theater with a sold out crowd, I started to realize something horrific… Norbit was what killed Anna Nicole Smith. Putting […]

Silent Scream

Silent Scream

| February 6, 2007

If you’re looking for a movie about the evils of abortion, you’re in the wrong place. Despite the title, which I hope somebody knew was already taken, this particular “Silent Scream” has almost nothing to do with abortion, unless you’re one of those who considers murder an abortion, just in something like the eighty-eighth trimester. […]

Smokin’ Aces

Smokin’ Aces

| February 2, 2007

I pretty much knew what I was getting into while walking in to Smokin’ Aces- a fun ride. Along the lines of The Big Hit and other assassin flicks, this little gem was thoroughly entertaining with an A-list cast, big laughs and even a dash of drama to bring things up a notch. Considering this […]

Epic Movie

Epic Movie

| February 2, 2007

This film is as funny as cancer. And I mean that in the worst way possible. In fact, there is nothing remotely positive I can say about Epic Movie, other than it being quite possibly one of the worst movies ever made. I’ve seen porn with a better plot. The Spanish channel makes more sense […]

Because I Said So

Because I Said So

| February 2, 2007

Because I Said So boasts an impressive cast of talented women: Diane Keaton, Mandy Moore, and Lauren Graham (sorely underused, from this Gilmore Girls fan’s perspective). Director Michael Lehmann brings female-friendly experience from an impressive roster of television directing gigs for shows like Big Love, The Comeback, and Wonderfalls. Screenwriters Karen Leigh Hopkins and Jessie […]

Shut the Fuck Up and Shoot

Shut the Fuck Up and Shoot

| February 2, 2007

I don’t know if any of you have noticed, but there’s a brand new trend in Hollywood and it goes a little something like this–the marketing campaign for a film begins much sooner (earlier) than it needs to, sometimes with movies that are not due out until years from now. To all these studios behind […]

The Fort Fisher Hermit: The Life and Death of Robert E. Harrill

The Fort Fisher Hermit: The Life and Death of Robert E. Harrill

| February 2, 2007

There was something whimsical about Robert Harrill. His life wasn’t easy, and it wasn’t necessarily happy. But for the thousands of visitors who flocked to Fort Fisher, North Carolina each year, he provided a smile and a nugget of wisdom to each friendly face that passed by his tiny hovel. The Fort Fisher Hermit seeks […]

Short Takes – February 2007

Short Takes – February 2007

| February 1, 2007

Television Isaiah Washington says the word “faggot” backstage at the Golden Globes and the entire western world throws a hissy fit (no pun intended). Not only did he not use the word in a discriminatory context (we all saw the video on YouTube), but he also wasn’t the one who started a media frenzy about […]
