Did You Hear About the Morgans?

Did You Hear About the Morgans?

| December 26, 2009

Stop me if you’ve heard this one. We’ll take a couple of city dwellers and put them in the Wild West to see how they adapt. Like City Slickers but we’ll make them an almost divorced couple. On the way home from a possible reconciliation dinner, Paul and Meryl Morgan (Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica […]

Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock Holmes

| December 26, 2009

It was a dark and stormy night. Christmas, 2010. And I was transported back to 1860’s London by a director who had, at least 3 times before, given me a headache with disjointed, darkly colored movies that needed much explanation. Former Madonna squeeze (guess you would need more there) Guy Ritchie had great success with […]

It’s Complicated

It’s Complicated

| December 26, 2009

As many things which are complicated, it all started at a weekend family gathering. There are some people we are just not supposed to sleep with, but when they find themselves unaccompanied, Jane and Jake Adler go for one more romp in the hay. 10 years after their divorce. With him married to someone 20 […]

Bart Got A Room

Bart Got A Room

| August 10, 2009

Like most Chuck Lorre television episodes, the title of Bart Got A Room has only the slightest bit to do with the movie. It IS the story of how Danny Stein spent $600 on the hotel room, the limo, and the tux for his prom, only to screw up the most important part: making sure […]

The Proposal

The Proposal

| July 12, 2009

Oh my goodness – Sandra Bullock naked! Yea, that was going to be my entire review. But Editor In Chief Del sent it back to me asking for a skosh more detail. Ok, you can’t really see much, and have to use your imagination, but she really IS naked. In The Proposal, Sandra Bullock stars […]

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

| July 12, 2009

Questions left over from 2007’s Transformers: How is it these huge hunks of metal can’t just squish any human they want with impunity? How come we can never really see the Transformers change from one thing to another? Its all shakey cam and close ups. Could Megan Fox be any hotter? Instead of destroying the […]

ICE AGE: DAWN OF THE DINOSAURS

ICE AGE: DAWN OF THE DINOSAURS

| July 6, 2009

A few weeks ago, when UP came out, I was expecting another PIXAR fun, frolic-filled movie I could take the (now) 4-year-old movie buddy who calls me Daddy to see. Boy, they sure forgot to put the scary parts into the Warnings (as I lovingly call trailers). So when I saw Ice Age: Dawn of […]

PUBLIC ENEMIES

PUBLIC ENEMIES

| July 6, 2009

Walking into the theater, all I knew about Public Enemies was that it had to do with gangsters in the 1930’s and starred Johnny Depp. I wasn’t in “Gotta See It” mode, but since it had a holiday weekend opening in the summer, it was probably going to be pretty good. Yep. It was. The […]

Righteous Kill

Righteous Kill

| September 21, 2008

I hate to have to write reviews like this one. When I saw the trailer for Righteous Kill, I was excited that two of my all time favorite actors were starring. Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino have been in two other movies together (Heat and The Godfather Part II), but never shared the screen for […]

Swing Vote

Swing Vote

| August 4, 2008

When you’re a CNN/CSPAN junkie like myself, you always wish, “What if I got to make the final decision on who became president?” I can tell you now, we wouldn’t have had massive Reaganomics deficits, would not have had to worry about reading any moron’s lips and Saddam would still be completely contained in the […]
