The Class  [Entre Les Murs]

The Class [Entre Les Murs]

| June 14, 2009

In Cantet’s Palme d’Or winner “The Class,” based on Francois Begaudeau’s autobiographical novel, (yes, it’s the same Francois,) sometimes it’s a little unclear who’s teaching whom, and exactly what it is that’s being learned.

I Can’t Think Straight

I Can’t Think Straight

| December 8, 2008

We’ve seen it countless times; intelligent, extroverted, slightly antagonistic person A is introduced to equally intelligent, slightly more reserved person B, and it’s so electric we can feel the current in our movie seats. During their courtship, which is at the same time both powerful and fragile, the two people bring out the best in […]

Poseidon

Poseidon

Poor Poseidon. It had so much going for it. It had a talented cast, a powerhouse director and a huge budget (over $160 million) to work with. So what the hell went wrong? After viewing this flick, I now realize why the first three letters of the title are P-O-S. At this point I could […]

Mission: Impossible III

Mission: Impossible III

| May 6, 2006

Say hello to the first kickass action flick of 2006. Not only is M:I-3 the best of the franchise, it may quite possibly be one of the greatest action pictures ever made. First, I must give the screenwriters props for the hook in the beginning. This film should be shown in film schools around the […]

Short Takes – May 2006

Television The producers of ER have finally lost their minds. After years of making terrible casting decisions, this one takes the cake. John Stamos, who did a brief stint as a boring paramedic on the show, will be joining the cast as a regular next season. So let me get this straight. Stamos appears for […]

Lay Off Sly!

This is for all you Stallone haters out there: lay the fuck off! So what if he wants to do Rocky 6 or Rambo 4? Sure, he’s old as shit, but does he really deserve all the bad press he’s been getting over the past six months? I mean, this isn’t Judge fucking Dredd we’re […]

Scary Movie 4

Scary Movie 4

| April 18, 2006

No matter how bad a film is, every single flick on the planet has at least something going for it. Scary Movie 4 redefines this statement because it has nothing going for it. Its stupid, childish, unfunny dog shit. First off, this wasn’t from the people that brought you Airplane! And The Naked Gun. This […]

Slither

Slither

| April 2, 2006

There is only one reason why you should see Slither- to laugh your silly ass off. It would’ve been a lot better had this been the only mission the filmmakers set out to accomplish. Sadly though, there are more times than not where they actually try and turn this puppy into a serious horror flick. […]

Short Takes – April 2006

| April 1, 2006

Television The body count just keeps on rising in the 24 universe. Within the past two hours alone, fans watched a total of four main characters fall to the ground lifelessly, one of them being fan favorite Tony Almeida, the only regular to remain on the show since the first season (besides Kiefer). In other […]
