CHARLIE SHEEN…

Y’know, one thing that I think is easy to forget, due to all of the controversy and personal scandals, is that Sheen is actually a pretty darn good actor. I’ve made the observation before that, if he’d made a few better decisions in choosing his roles (& controlling his personal life, of course) I could…

WALL STREET: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS

I finally saw this movie today, playing on HBO. The original film, WALL STREET, is one of my all-time favorite movies. But from the minute I first heard about a sequel I just had a feeling that there was no way it could live up to the original. None of the trailers that I saw…

THE SOCIAL NETWORK/DEFENDING MARK ZUCKERBERG

I just watched this movie for the 2nd time, and my first impression isn’t changed. It’s extremely unfair to Mark Zuckerberg. Now, I’m not talking about the allegations of him stealing the idea of Facebook from others, or cheating his former best friend out of the company, because I wasn’t there and, hey, there’s two…

ASHLEY JUDD in “DOUBLE JEOPARDY”

Written by David Weisberg & Douglas Cook Directed by Bruce Beresford This film came out in 1999, and I’m reviewing it because Ashley Judd is my favorite actress, and I just re-watched this film on TV. Judd plays a woman named Libby who is (seemingly) happily married to a man named Nick, and they have…

WILL SMITH IN “SEVEN POUNDS”

  NOTE: This review WILL contain several major spoilers to this film. I cannot avoid this, in order to discuss what I liked about the film. I don’t think knowing these spoilers would necessarily lessen the enjoyment of the film to a first-time viewer, but if you haven’t seen it continue to read at your…

THE WITCHES OF BREASTWICK 2

Note: This is a “softcore” film, which includes (mostly female) nudity, and many instances of simulated sex, as well as some small implied violence. Not intended for children. This review contains spoilers but, let’s face it, you don’t watch movies like this for the “plot” anyway. First, despite the above promo art, Julie K Smith,…

3 MOVIES THAT I’M TOO SCARED TO EVER WATCH

I love horror movies, but they don’t actually scare me. Okay, the original Amityville Horror & Jaws scared me when I first saw them, but I was little kid, so that doesn’t count. But, generally speaking, the supernatural doesn’t scare me. What frightens me is REALITY. I have a somewhat morbid imagination, & a naturally…

A RAPPER, A HOMOSEXUAL, & A SERIAL KILLER

Sounds like the set-up to a joke, doesn’t it? “A rapper, a homosexual, & a serial killer walk into a bar…” But, no, it’s just some brief spoiler-ific reviews of 3 movies I’ve recently seen. Much like the Late Tupac, with whom he is forever linked, I wasn’t particularly a fan of Notorious B.I.G. when…

GOD, BEYONCE, KEANU REEVES, AND TOM CRUISE

It’s either ironic or blasphemous that I finally saw this movie on Christmas Day. But, then again, as Bill Maher points out in the beginning of this documentary, it’s not like there’s any indication in the Bible, or any other Holy Text, that Dec. 25th is the day that Jesus Christ was born. Not that…
