Year One

The story of two cavemen who wander through the world. Decent, I laughed a few times. Not worth the ticket price though.

Niagara Motel

This is the story of a bunch of down-on-their-luck people living at a seedy motel in Niagara Falls. The desk clerk/maintenance man Phil is constantly drunk and often hilarious and is played by Craig Ferguson. Phil is here because his wife fell over the falls on their honeymoon and he’s got nowhere else to go. […]

Spring Breakdown

A bunch of 30-something women go to spring break to try to relive their youth. Don’t watch this. It’s terrible.

Princess Protection Program

It’s like the witness protection program, only with princesses. It’s a Disney tv movie. Great if you’re a 10 year old girl, not so great if you’re a 31 year old man.

The Hangover

I’m going to say this is the best “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” movie I’ve seen in a very long time. The movie skips the night-of and picks up the morning-after. One guy is missing, one guy is missing a tooth, there’s a baby in the closet, and a tiger in the bathroom. […]

Sunshine Cleaning

A story about a down-and-out single mother played by Amy Adams. Tired of being a maid and being looked down upon by everyone, she starts her own crime scene cleanup business. I really enjoyed it.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

I think it’s safe to say that this is the most anticipated movie of the summer – and it doesn’t disappoint. Transformers 2 opens with an exciting action sequence followed by another exciting action sequence and then we get to catch up with the characters from the first movie. Although it’s a very long movie: […]

Ballet Shoes

A BBC tv movie about three orphan girls raised by the selfless niece of a traveling explorer/anthropologist. It’s a “nice” story for young children. Most notably it stars Emma Watson (Hermione of Harry Potter) and Yasmin Paige (Maria of The Sarah Jane Adventures).

Land of the Lost

Will Ferrell’s latest retarded movie. The worst part of this movie is that Danny McBride and Anna Friel (2 actors I enjoy watching) got dragged along for the ride. Pass on this steaming pile of dinosaur crap.

Confessions of a Shopaholic

A romantic comedy based on the book of the same name. As far as romantic comedies go I think it fell short of the mark – I would give it a 4 out of 10. Pass.

Fired Up

When I first saw the trailer for this movie I thought it would be offensive and juvenile and not worth watching. I was wrong. It tells the story of two football jocks who join the cheer leading squad so they can go to cheer camp where there are 300 new girls for them to conquer. […]

Lesbian Vampire Killers

Yes, it’s as awesome as it sounds! Think Shaun of the Dead with lesbian vampires instead of zombies.

All the Real Girls

This movie is about a guy and his best friend’s sister. It takes place in a small town where everyone seems to have some sort of personality disorder/mental handicap. It’s strange and a little depressing with no real ending. Pass.

Up

Another incredible movie from Pixar. My favourite parts were the scenes with the dogs with talking collars – the writers nailed the dog personality. Must see.

Balls Out: Gary the Tennis Coach

Typical direct-to-video underdog sports story starring Seann William Scott. Pass.

Coraline

A children’s movie that would scare the pants off of a lot of children. The animation is amazing and the story is very good – it’s just the Tim Burton style animation that makes it creepy.
