Doctor Strange – Thoughts and Impressions

Monday, November 7th, 2016

I had the opportunity to watch “Doctor Strange” over the weekend. As with many of the Marvel movies, I was excited about a new entry to the MCU. There are spoilers in this review, so consider yourself warned. This movie is another origin story, this time for Dr Steven Strange. In brief, he’s an egotistical, […]

Predators – 2010

Saturday, January 1st, 2011

We watched this over NYE. It was a decent action flick, though paled in comparison to the original 1987 Arno movie. It was treated as a sequel of sorts, but still self contained. For an action flick, it was relatively low-budget. The special effects were solid, but never completely over the top. Adrien Brody did […]

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009)

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

I guess I am a purest when it comes to movies based off books. The more I think about this movie, the less I like it. Don’t get me wrong, there are several high points to the film: Cinematography Some extremely funny moments (especially Ron with the love potion and Harry with the luck potion) […]

Star Trek (2009)

Amos Lee: Last Days at the Lodge

Wednesday, July 16th, 2008

Apparently, he wrote all the songs that appear on this album, which I applaud. You […]

After a busy weekend or partying, house-cleaning, and hosting, Brandy and I went to relax at the theaters. We obviously went to see “Get Smart” according to the title of this post. Here is a brief synopsis: Maxwell Smart (Steve Carell) is a CONTROL Analyst who dreams to be a field-agent, working alongside his favorite […]

Indiana Jones and the Demand for My Money Back

Wednesday, May 28th, 2008

If you couldn’t tell from the title of this post, I was a little less than pleased with my time spent with the latest, and hopefully last, installment of the “Indiana Jones” franchise. I knew going in that I should keep my expectations low, because let’s face it — George Lucas hasn’t had a great […]
