Spider-Man 3 (2007)

Spider-Man 3 (2007) – Sigh… I said I was going to revisit the Sam Raimi Spider-Man films… and unfortunately that means watching this one again. I can’t believe I even own it (it came with my Playstation 3). Completist that I am however I just had to hold onto it and watch it during my … Continue reading

Spider-Man 2 (2004)

Spider-Man 2 (2004) – There is no more ridiculous blanket statement that permeates the world of film snobbery than “sequels suck.” If you say that, you don’t know what the fuck you are talking about. Yeah, many series have a case of diminishing returns as they go on and on, but there are sequels that … Continue reading

Spider-Man (2002)

Spider-Man (2002) – Okay, let me start by saying that fuckin’ hate fuckin’ spiders. They terrify the fuck out of me. Also I curse even more than I already fuckin’ do (which is a lot) when talking about the evil little fuckers. That being said, I’ve always liked Spider-Man. Go figure. It probably has a … Continue reading

Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011)

Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) – This article was originally published on 12ftdwende.com on 5 August 2011 I know I’m not very creative with my article titles, but I really had to fight the impulse to just call this one “DAMN DIRTY APES!!!!” because that really is one of my favorite things … Continue reading

To be certain the film is about that, but is anything but a straightforward legal … Continue reading

127 Hours (2010)

127 Hours (2010) — Wow… just wow.  Not only is this the best movie you’ll ever see about a guy stuck in a hole, it’s one of the best movies I’ve seen this year.  As an actor, James Franco has kind of been at both ends of the spectrum.  He’s been great in movies like … Continue reading

Milk (2008)

Milk (2008) — For truly objective film criticism you have to divorce a move from any wider cause it represents and just examine the merits of the film itself.  But you know what?  No one’s really objective when it comes to art so anyone who claims they are is full of shit.  I love this … Continue reading

Eat Pray Love (2010)

Eat Pray Love (2010) — You ever have someone tell you about their spiritual awakening? You smile and nod and hope like hell they change the topic before your head explodes.  This movie is two and a half hours of that. I think I have to chalk this up to personal bias since the movie … Continue reading
