Shooter

Mark Walhberg plays an ex-military sniper who gets dragged into a plot to kill the president. Lots of chases and gun-fights. Well worth the admission price.

The turtles are back! This Turtles movie is animated and picks up where the previous live-action movies left off. It was done very well. Well worth seeing.

Dax Shepard stars in this comedy. He makes it his mission to get get his enemy into prison, and then follow him in to make his life miserable. So-so. I wouldn’t recommend it.

Decoys 2: Alien Seduction

If you haven’t seen the first one, you probably won’t appreciate this second one. The premise: Hot, blonde aliens have come to earth to mate with humans. They can only mate in sub-zero temperatures and do so through tentacles that come out of the place where the belly button should be. So bad, it’s good.

Something bad has happened to Danika and at first we’re shown the world through her eyes, but as the movie progresses we start seeing her life through the eyes of those around her. It’s an interesting […]

The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning

This is the direct-to-DVD prequel to the recent Hollywood version of The Dukes of Hazzard, with none of the same cast except for Willie Nelson. It’s passable, and entertaining. Worth watching if there’s nothing better on.

Factotum

Factotum: An employee or assistant who serves in a wide range of capacities. It struck me that Luke Perry was trying to win himself another Oscar.

In this movie, a young girl escapes from her evil step-father into the world of the labyrinth. The movie is very unusual, and refreshing […]

The Night Listener

A bizarre movie where Robin Williams plays a gay, late-night radio host / writer who, for no apparent reason, makes it his quest to help a young, abused boy who may or may not be the figment of someones imagination. Pass.
