‘Tropic Thunder’ Review

‘Tropic Thunder’ Review

“An extremely funny satire of the film industry that has plenty of lightning but doesn't rumble Hollywood to crumbles--not as much as I'd like, anyways”

‘The Dark Knight’ Review

‘The Dark Knight’ Review

“'The Dark Knight' transcends the comic-book movie genre, blending the borders--crime drama, Shakespearean tragedy and film noir--and leaving in it's wake a tragic performance by Heath Ledger that defines not just his career but the essence of film villainy.”

‘Get Smart’ Review

“Carell and Hathaway deliver the goods the smart way: to entertain. Don Adams is probably rolling in his grave--laughing. And he would be proud.”

‘Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull’ Review

‘Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull’ Review

“His whip still cracks as it flies through the air. The punches still sound like a bomb going off aside the bad guy's jaw. The infamous theme music is right on cue. And after 19 years off the screen, the fedora still fits nicely.”

‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ Review

“It's clichéd to say, but this is one you won't forget, a culturally and socially significant film soon to join the likes of John Hughes' work of 'Sixteen Candles' and 'The Breakfast Club'”

‘Semi-Pro’ Review

“'Fros and Ferrell... a good shot that isn't quite the Michael Jordan of basketball, but not as bad as the Michael Jordan of baseball.”

‘Diary of the Dead’ Review

“Romero sacrifices some entertainment value and zombie gore for a subtle commentary on today's post-9/11 condition... but it's still good”

‘U2 3D’ Review

“See Bono as big as his ego--IN 3-D!!! Plus, cooler glasses than Bono! But you are right in the middle of one of the greatest rock band's concert thanks to IMAX's great sound system”

‘Cloverfield’ Review

‘Cloverfield’ Review

“Sure, it plays into our post-9/11 fears of being under attack but done in a subtle way that it does not detract from the suspense of a stupendous monster movie”
