Top 5 Movies to See on Christmas Day

Posted by Brooke on December 21st, 2011

We have a fun holiday tradition to look forward to every year: seeing a movie on Christmas day with the family. Not just our immediate family, mind you—I’m talking the whole shebang. Grandma, grandpa, aunts, uncles and more than a dozen cousins. It’s a huge event and we have a complete blast every year. We’ve […]

Magic Castle will be a really BORING movie.

Posted by Rebecca on September 30th, 2010

This I promise? Why? BECAUSE it’s HAPPENING.  Yeah, you heard me. please make more money for me! Garble garble! According to Variety,  Ronald Moore, the dude who produced the new, awesome “Battlestar Galactica” TV series, (as opposed to the boring old lame ones) already started a script that he pitched.  Really?  Wow, that’s bottom of […]

Sex and the City 2: Please Make it Stop.

Posted by Alyssa on June 4th, 2010

I knew the movies had gotten more and more ridiculous over the years, departing from the simple, charming plot lines of years past, but nothing could have prepared me for SATC 2. I don’t even know where to start with this catastrophe. Like many women, I loved the show, and have seen every episode, from […]

Roger Ebert’s Review of SATC2: “Some of these people make my skin crawl.”

Posted by PZ on May 28th, 2010

Sex and The City 2 is absolutely everywhere I look, as the cast gear up for its launch all around the world, reviews of the second film have already been released. One reviewer, who I firmly side with, abhors everything that Sex and The City is. For me, SATC2 devalues the face of the movie […]

Demi Moore’s Fake Kids Are Fugly, Too

Posted by Moxie on April 12th, 2010

In a totally cutting-edge bit of synergy [/sarcasm], Demi Moore announced over Twitter that she’ll be starring in LOL as Miley Cyrus‘s infinitely more attractive mother. (Those weren’t her exact words, but I’m sure she was thinking it, perhaps adding a “Suck it, tweeny!”) Not much news on the plot, such as it will be, […]

Alice in Wonderland: The Costumes

Posted by Alyssa on March 5th, 2010

I went to the midnight showing of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland last night, and the late showing was definitely worth the extra coffee needed to wake me up this morning. Overall, the costumes were solid. Johnny Depp had the most detailed look as the “Mad Hatter,” sporting colored contacts, a face full of makeup […]

Julie & Julia Review

Posted by Kim on August 8th, 2009

I haven’t posted a movie review here in sooo many months, since I usually see movies a little bit later and at that point it seems useless.  But today I went to catch a flick, and out to dinner to celebrate my birthday (the big 24!) and caught Julie & Julia, the new movie with […]

Be Kind Rewind Review

Posted by Kim on February 26th, 2008

  I finally got to the movies again, the last time I went was when Sweeney Todd came out (long time, I know).  I didn’t even know much about this film, which is in really limited release, except the general premise.  It’s about two guys who work in a really old school  video store (everything […]

Juno Movie Review

Posted by Tiff on January 19th, 2008

After hearing endless buzz about the latest cult-indie hit ‘Juno,’ I couldn’t help but see what everyone was talking about; after all, you know I’m a sucker for indie films. As the title might suggest, Juno (Ellen Page) is faced with the life changing event of teen pregnancy. At sixteen years old, she has to […]

P.S. I Love You Review

Posted by Tiff on January 19th, 2008

I finally got around to seeing ‘P.S. I Love You,’ starring Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler. I wanted to see it for two reasons…  1. The movie features the song “Last Train Home” by GTS’ favorite Rockstar guy, Ryan Star, and 2. Everyone I knew who had seen it talked about how amazing it was. […]

“The Great Debaters” Review

Posted by Kim on January 2nd, 2008

  What’s up with people totally skipping all of the good movies recently? It’s bad enough to see Sweeney Todd tanking, and now this movie couldn’t even debut in the top 10!  “The Great Debaters” probably looks a bit boring based on the trailer to some people but it’s actually not.  The movie follows four […]

Sweeney Todd Review

Posted by Kim on December 26th, 2007

  While most people were out watching National Treasure over the weekend,  I was much more interested in seeing Sweeney Todd.  Look, it’s a musical, it’s horror, it has Johnny Depp and Tim Burton….it doesn’t get any better than all of that! I didn’t know too much about Sweeney Todd before going to see it, […]

“I Am Legend” Review

Posted by Kim on December 17th, 2007

  I was really hyped to see this movie ever since I first saw the previews earlier this year.  And of course it’s Will Smith, which pretty much means everyone is required to see it.  The movie is based on the book of the same title (and it’s also been made into a film twice […]

“This Christmas” Review

Posted by Kim on November 25th, 2007

  So many good looking movies came out over Thanksgiving but I chose to take my family to see This Christmas (even over Enchanted, which looks great as well).  This is a great holiday family film without some of the cheese that we usually get around this time.  It basically centers around a family coming […]

October Horror: Asian Horror

Posted by Kim on October 14th, 2007

For the rest of this month I’m going to do a series of posts about some of my favorite and perhaps lesser known horror movies. This is actually a follow up to my second audio blog, which is located underneath the first post on the page. In it I talk about two AMAZING Asian horror […]

Why Did I Get Married? Review

Posted by Kim on October 14th, 2007

  What was the last movie I saw? I can’t really remember, it’s been quite a while!  This morning I got a chance to get to the theaters to see Why Did I Get Married?, the latest flick from Tyler Perry.  I watched two of his other films, “Daddy’s Little Girls” and “Dairy of a […]

Across the Universe Review

Posted by Tiff on September 29th, 2007

Tonight, I checked out Julie Taymor’s latest film, the Beatles infused ‘Across the Universe.’ While I like the Beatles, and I respect their place in music, actually own a few vinyls, and visited Strawberry Fields in Central Park when I was in the City, I had no definite expectations for this film. Granted, I typically […]

The Invasion Review

Posted by Kim on August 21st, 2007

  This movie has been getting terrible reviews and I’m slightly surprised; it’s just as good of an action  flick as any of the other junk at the theaters right now.  This morning I had to wake up at 7am, and, Im used to waking up around 11, so maybe the fact that I could […]

Harry Potter & The Order of Pheonix

Posted by Kimberly on July 11th, 2007

  The new Harry Potter movie opens today, or for hardcore fans, last night at midnight. Seriously here in my town people were lined up for ten hours. On the news they showed all these nerds people running around in capes with their lawn chairs and coolers in front of the theater. How embarrassing.   […]

Evening Review

Posted by Tiff on July 6th, 2007

The catch-line for the movie, ‘Evening’ is, “Her greatest secret was her greatest gift.” Tonight, when I went to see the movie, I thought I’d be sitting down for a couple hours of female wisdom lived through lives passed and laughs shared. However, what I got was something more of an incomplete puzzle, and no […]

License To Wed Review

Posted by Kimberly on July 5th, 2007

This movie is getting pretty bad reviews and even worse totals at the box office (it only made $2m yesterday).  I saw it on the 4th, and I’m not surprised that it did so poorly.  When I got to the theater there was a line wrapped all the way around the building for Transformers, and […]

Transformers Review

Posted by Kimberly on July 3rd, 2007

My friend and ex girl talkin’ smack Petra lives in Canada where Transformers was released earlier than it is here in the States (don’t even get me started on that!). She gave me the low down on the film so I could share it with all of you! How was Transformers? It was amazing! It […]

Ratatouille Review

Posted by Tiff on July 1st, 2007

So, tonight I wanted to go see ‘Evening,’ but sadly, was overruled, and I ended up at a 10 o’clock showing of ‘Ratatouille.’ That is, of course, not saying it wasn’t a film I wanted to see, it just wasn’t a film I wanted to see tonight. Regardless, the film is a sort of ‘Fievel’ […]

1408 Review

Posted by Kimberly on June 26th, 2007

While Tiffany recaps the few and far between quality movies that are released this summer, I’ll keep everyone up to date on the popcorn flicks and blockbusters. This weekend was the opening of 1408, a thriller based on a short story by Steven King, that I had been looking forward to for a couple months […]
