There are always going to be movies we don’t see in any given year. It could be from no chance or just not wanting to do so. Here, however, are 11 movies you need to play catch up with from 2011. Continue reading
Let’s just get this thing started. Continue reading
TRANSFORMERS is a film I’ll defend til I die. It’s overly long, and the action at the end is just metal hitting metal with sparks flying off, but I love all of it. Okay, so I don’t love the generally bad attempts at humor, but overall, I’m a big fan. Of course then we get to the disaster that was TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN. It took everything bad in the first film and multiplied it to an undesirable amount, including the runtime. The humor was worse, the plot dumber, and the action even more indecipherable. It’s a terrible film that Michael Bay and his crew aren’t proud of, and deservedly so. Well, luckily for them, and us, all is (almost) forgiven with TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON. Continue reading
I quite enjoy the first RESIDENT EVIL film. As an adaptation it somewhat fails, but as its own thing, it’s a decent enough horror film. Somewhere along the lines in-between RESIDENT EVIL and RESIDENT EVIL: APOCALYPSE it was decided that the film needed more action. So the sequel would focus more on action than horror, and suffered for it. The second film is a mess. It was the start of taking different things from the video game series, and throwing them together. The action was dull and lifeless. The third film, RESIDENT EVIL: EXTINCTION was only slightly, and I mean slightly, better if only because it had crows. Lots of evil crows. When I sent out a request for reviews, I knew I’d get something terrible. I just didn’t think I’d get something this bad so early. Continue reading
Woody Allen is one of those legendary directors that’s constantly talked about. That’s largely because since 1966, Woody Allen has released 42 movies. And not only does he constantly release films, but for the most part, they’re also generally well loved. He’s a director that if you tell someone you haven’t seen his films, people are somewhat shocked. Well before this weekend, I’d only seen one Woody Allen film, and it was the 2005 film MATCH POINT, which I quite liked. Now, however, I’ve seen two, and it was a wise decision. Continue reading
Tonight is the Season Two premiere of Louie on FX. The first season is some of the finest that TV has to offer right now. That’s largely because Louis C.K. is given full control over the show. The show examines different parts of life through the comedic eyes of Louis. Shows everything from going to the doctor to traveling to simply just getting old. The show doesn’t push as many buttons as his standup, but the show knows when it’s too far, and makes sure to go further. Louis would hate me calling the show hilarious, but that’s really what it is. The Season Two premiere is tonight at 10pm on FX.
