Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) – What is love? (Baby, don’t hurt me… don’t hurt me no more…) Seriously, though. We’re not sexually monogamous by nature, but we pair up with other people exclusively anyway. Also if you really think about it, every relationship you have ever been in or are in or … Continue reading

The Black Cauldron (1985)

The Black Cauldron (1985) – Behold! This is the movie that Walt Disney Animation tried to bury. It’s also one of the ones that I have a childhood connections to… but interestingly enough not due to the movie itself. I had a video game on my computer of this movie. It was odd and fairly … Continue reading

Conan series

This article was originally published on on 19 August 2011. I was just talking the other day with my friend Allison about books people expect you to have read (and how they are taken aback if you haven’t). There are millions of books out there and only so much time in the day. People … Continue reading

Mirror Mirror (2012)

Mirror Mirror (2012) – So 2012 is the year of the competing Snow White projects. This was the first of the two but I never got around to seeing it in theaters so it’s getting reviewed second. It doesn’t have a very high bar to clear to be the better of the two. I found … Continue reading

If I had my own damn Award Show…

Well, the Oscars are coming up in a couple days. I’ll get my picks and predictions and whatnot posted Sunday morning and then try to do some sort of real-time reaction thing like I tried doing with the Emmys a while back… In the meantime I figured I’d chime in with what I actually thought … Continue reading

War Horse (2011)

War Horse (2011) – Some movies you can tell just by the trailers that they’re designed to pull tears from the toughest of men. Some reach this goal, some don’t. They’re rarely the type of Oscar-worthy prestige movies they think they are. One man who can stir sentiment to remarkable results is Steven Spielberg. His … Continue reading

The Lovely Bones (2009)

The Lovely Bones (2009) — So I read and thoroughly enjoyed the book this was based but had heard several negative reviews and therefore didn’t go into this movie with very high expectations.  But low expectations were greatly exceeded as I enjoyed the movie quite a bit.  True a lot of things were missing from … Continue reading

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003) — This is actually my least favorite of the three films and it incidentally went on to win the Academy Award for Best Picture and Best Director (and several others).  But despite my problems with it (which are few) it still remains, as with … Continue reading

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) — So the words I used in my review of Fellowship still apply: epic and awesome.  This movie lacks both exposition and resolution and still manages to be riveting for about four hours (again, extended edition because why watch the shorter ones?).  I also majorly dig … Continue reading

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) — Epic and awesome.  It’s really only the first third of what in essence is one colossal twelve-hour movie, but if you had to evaluate them as individual films this one would be my favorite.  [I am referring to the extended versions.  I saw … Continue reading
