FIRST IMPRESSION: I went into I AM NUMBER FOUR with low expectations. I had seen a few of the trailers for the film here and there, but had no other information to go on. All I knew going into the film were these facts: D.J. Caruso, director of Disturbia is behind the camera. Check. Hot […]

STEP UP 3… Without the D

STEP UP 3… Without the D

| December 23, 2010

FIRST IMPRESSION: I saw STEP UP 3D in theaters and actually had a good experience. If you go into the film knowing it’s going to be a cheese fest, with obvious attempts at utilizing the 3D, then you will have fun. The acting is pretty sub-par minus a few performances. The dancing, well, it’s a […]

YES MAN

YES MAN

| April 11, 2009

YES MAN is a welcomed return to classic Jim Carrey comedies. With the release of FUN WITH DICK AND JANE it seemed as if Carrey’s antics became old hat and he was no longer a powerhouse in the funny business. YES MAN mostly succeeds in giving us the old Carrey we know and love. Several […]

Is it honestly that hard to make a decent fucking movie about a hit man who kills people? That’s all you have to do! All it needs are some decent actors, a comprehensible script, some sweet kills and BAM. You’ve got yourself a good movie. But for some odd reason, Hollywood tends to fuck up […]

Superbad
