Review: FRIGHT NIGHT



Fright Night is a classic horror B-movie done well that restores some much-deprived dignity to the vampire mythos. It might flight under the radar for most but any true horror fan will certainly appreciated.

Set in the outskirts of Vegas in a suburban development, which common sense would tell you shouldn’t live there. It is several square blocks of homes and streets entirely surrounded by desert. Cell phone signal is shoddy at best, and most of its residents work at night. Vegas and its suburbs are as unnatural as the vampires who live there. And because of this it is an ideal location.

Review: RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES



What a stupid title. Why be in-line with other stupid 1970s sci-fi titles such as "Beneath the... Conquest of... Escape from the Planet of the Apes?" Better titles would have included "Rise of Ape Planet" and "Those Wacky Monkeys." My love for the original is self-documented, so that might be a consideration to bare while reading this review. Then again, few people would challenge my displeasure with the Tim Burton remake in 2001; so maybe I'm in the best position to say the latest re-imagining of the franchise is bland, annoying and yet viscerally rewarding.

I mean we are talking about almost two movies in one--and a rather brisk one at that.

REVIEW: CRAZY, STUPID, LOVE.


There are comedies, there are romantic comedies, there romantic comedies that are actually good, there are dramadies, and then there's Crazy, Stupid, Love which manages to find a piece of every single one of them.

The Sitter



This looks like David Gordon Green tried to remake Adventures in Babysitting. Too bad Jonah Hill isn't as attractive as Elizabeth Shue used to be. But I will admit this looks decently funny.

Review: COWBOYS AND ALIENS


I've heard that the graphic novel "Cowboys and Aliens" is pretty awful. So, I guess what happened, was that someone decided to make a movie about it.

Jon Favreau's newest Cowboys and Aliens is the definition of a movie that doesn't reach its potential. It's adequately made and solidly acted but also filled with an incredible amount of stupidity, and, worst of all, a serious lack of creativity.

Review: CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER

There's something about superheroes that's been lost over the years. We never grew to love them simply because we thought they were cool, or because they beat up the bad guys. These things were part of it, but the real reason we've always been drawn to them is the fact that we can relate to them, and see them as real people. In the characters of Joe Johnston's Captain America, we find a return to that nostalgia - a return to what makes superhero movies so great.
