Offside

In Iran women aren’t allowed inside sporting events. It is considered dangerous to have women around so many over-excited and cursing men. Any women caught trying to get into the stadium are held in detention and the taken to the “Vice Squad” afterwards for punishment. This movie takes place during the Iran’s qualifying game for […]

Sexy Beast

Ben Kingsley plays an arrogant, annoyingly juvenile bank robber who travels to Spain to convince an old friend to come out of retirement for one last job. The entire movie is the friend saying no and Ben Kingsley pitching a fit. Too slow.

Strange Wilderness

A bunch of stoners and losers who host and produce a small-time nature show are about to lose their place on the network. In a last ditch effort to boost ratings and save the show they decide to find bigfoot. It’s a retarded movie with a couple hilarious parts.

Mon Meilleur Ami

Another French movie. This one is about an antiques dealer who realizes he has no friends, only business contacts who don’t even like him all that much. Pass.

Naissance des pieuvres

This is a French movie about two teenage girls who “come of age”. The French seem to make some really nutty movies. Pass.

The Hunting Party

Based on a true story. Richard Gere and Terrence Howard are war journalists who find themselves tracking the most wanted war criminal in the world. They manage to succeed where the CIA, UN, and everyone else has failed. At the beginning of the movie we’re told “Only the most ridiculous parts of this story are […]

Severance

A group of office workers travel to the woods of Eastern Europe for a team-building weekend. Things go horribly wrong and almost everyone dies. I would classify it as horror-comedy. Definitely worth watching.

What Happens In Vegas

This is what happens when 2 giant movie stars decide to make a movie. All through the movie you could tell that Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz were having the time of their lives working on this movie. I was pleasantly surprised by how good the movie was.

Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay

A steaming, juvenile turd. I was insulted by the crass humour (And that’s saying a lot for anyone who knows me.)

A serial killer / cop movie with computers. Adequate.

P.S. I Love You

Anyone who reads this blog will know that I’m a sucker for romantic comedies. The comedy portion was wonderful and the romantic portion was one of the saddest stories I’ve ever heard. I’m man enough to admit that I cried all through the movie, it’s that sad. If there’s anyone out there wanting to impress […]

Over Her Dead Body

A lighthearted romantic comedy about a woman who is crushed by an ice sculpture on her wedding day and then returns to haunt her former fiance. The ghost (Eva Longoria) spends her time tormenting a psychic (Lake Bell) who is interested in her former fiance (Paul Rudd). A must see, I laughed till I cried […]

He sets out to find her and ends up accumulating a rag-tag bunch of traveling companions. One girl is looking for “the […]

Baby Mama

A comedy about a woman who turns to a surrogate mother agency to help her have a child. It was amusing and funny in a couple of parts but on the whole I think it fell short of what it could have been.

Iron Man

It’s based on the Marvel comic book and stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwenyth Paltrow, Terrence Howard, and Jeff Bridges. It’s a fun summer action movie – it reminded me a lot of last summer’s Transformers in it’s feel. Jeff Bridges plays a larger-than-life movie villain with his shaved head and bushy beard – he reminded […]

Teeth

A horror-comedy about a teenage girl who has “vagina dentata”. It had so much promise but fell short in the execution. Pass.

Audrey Hepburn’s first role for which she won an Oscar.

A movie about a diamond heist in London in the 60’s. Nothing fantastic but solid entertainment none the less.
