The Duchess Review
The hidden gem of 2008 delivers the goods and went beyond expectations.
It's a shame so many films go under the radar, especially when they offer something that many mainstream films fail to deliver. The Duchess
was one of these films, and it most certainly came and went by quickly. I didn't even know about the film until stumbling across… Continue

Happy New Year and All That Jazz.
Anyway, just thought i would do a quick review of The Reader which stars Ralph Fiennes, Kate Winslet and David Kross. The plot is about Michael Berg a lawyer in Germany. Michael is looking back at his life and his encounter with a woman (Hanna played by Kate Winslet) who he had a affair with when he was 15 years old in West Germany years after the war.
She likes to be read to and Michael read many books to her and the love affair deepens… Continue

I think it's imposible to determine whether a certain year was bad or good for movies because every year we get a handful of great movies, but 2008 was the year of the comic book films, in 2008 We got Ironman, The Incredible Hulk, The Dark Knight, Hellboy II The Golden Army and Punisher War Zone, We've had one of the greatest animated movies of all time WALL E and one of the greatest Dreamworks animation movies of all time, Kung Fu Panda, but we've also got some animated movies that werent so… Continue

Let me start off by saying, this is NOT a best-of list. This is a list of my personal favorite 2008 movies
Now I know what most of you are thinking. "You liked SAW V? It SUCKED!". Well I dare to be my own person and say that I LOVED SAW V. I like all of the SAW movies because they are engaging and they make you think. Plus is gives us horror junkies what we really want, lots of blood and gore. This one has tried to go back to what the original SAW was. It… Continue

This is my first written movie reveiw.
Well after a whole weekend of trying to find some what of a positive review of the movie, and failing, I walked to the box office nervous thinking that I was walking in to a piece of shit movie, and that I was gonna hate every minute of it. Well I walked into a movie theater with about 5 other people in there and the movie begins. And what did I think of it, I thought it was okay.

Ok let's get one thing straight right off the bat before I begin the review proper, I am a huge wrestling fan and I'm not ashamed to admit it. I freaking love pro-wrestling. So when I first heard about this movie I immediately thought of the horrors of past wrestling movies, most of them staring Hulk Hogan, and thought that no way this film could be good.
Then I heard that Mickey Rourke was going to play the lead. I started to become more interested in this movie as I followed the… Continue

Here's my first review for this site. Sorry for the nature, it just is what it is:
Frank Miller has lost much if not all of his credibility as a film maker. In 2008's The Spirit, based on the landmarking comic series by Will Eisner, Frank Miller has proved to us that he's incapable of going solo, to call it inadequate would be an insult to the word. The finished product of Frank Miller's solo peice is a completely forgettable 2 hour 5 minutes pictures on screen. I'm just thankful… Continue

A valuable source has said that Courtney Love is looking for A-list actors to star in the latest docu-drama about Love's deceased husband, Lead Singer of the influential Seattle Grunge band Nirvana.
Supposedly, they have had talks about Ryan Gosling to star as Cobain and to have Scarlett Johansson as Courtney Love. Now for Cobain I think that Ryan Gosling would be a perfect choice for him, because after Gosling's performance as a drug-addicted… Continue

Released: Christmas 2008
I dont know if its because its Christmas time or what but movies have been making me sad lately. At least this film didn't make me cry like the middle age woman next to me.
The plot is pretty simple, a man is born old and grows young. Its pretty much all the explanation you need. There are all kinds of other things that occur in the life of Benjamin Button (Brad Pitt) but i wont spoil any of that for… Continue

Sergio Leone is truely one of the masters of film. His epics by the likes of Once Upon a Time in the West and A few dollars more are just two of the many classics Leone has given birth to. He is probably most famous for his Spaghetti western trilogy of "The Man With No Name." The two films leading up to this (A fistfull of dollars and a few dollars more) are both equally great. But the Good the Bad and the Ugly surpass them tremendously.…
