Movie Review: Our Idiot Brother

OUR IDIOT BROTHER Not funny or worth seeing at all. The casting sucked, the plot sucked, I didn’t laugh once, though I may have smiled a teeny bit. I couldn’t wait for it to be over. The only mildly likable thing about this film is a dog named Willie Nelson that connects with a dog named Dolly Parton. Spare yourself Read More …

Movie Review: Conan The Barbarian

I’m really not sure why Hollywood felt the need to remake this one because it wasn’t earth shattering or anything very special about it. Lots of killing and blood, of course, but other than that it was just OK. I thought the plot (finding scattered bone pieces) was ridiculous because they should have been destroyed in the first place. Yea, I Read More …

Movie Review: MOOZ-LUM

Mooz-lum is an independent film that was released on limited screens, but you can pick it up at your local Family Video. It stars Evan Ross, Nia Long, Danny Glover, and was filmed entirely in Southeast Michigan. It follows the trials and tribulations of an African American Muslim family pre and post 9/11. This film puts all the stereotypes and Read More …

Movie Review: Twilight – Breaking Dawn Part 1

As I type this I am still marinating on how I really feel about this film as I have just seen it less than an hour ago. Breaking Dawn starts the day before Edward and Bella are to be married and follows through their honeymoon, to the birth of their child, and ends with the death and rebirth of Bella as a Read More …

Movie Review: Jack and Jill

This is the first time that I have seen an Adam Sandler film in theatres. It was OK, some funny parts, many goofy ass parts. My mom thought it was hilarious! Al Pacino‘s role was ridiculous and the cameos by Johnny Depp and David Spade were equally ridiculous. I also liked the message of “beauty is in the eye of Read More …

Movie Review: Real Steel

Real Steel stars Hugh Jackman as an ex fighter, deadbeat dad, and all around asshole. I loved it! I was vehemently against seeing this film at first, but then I said…what the hell! Real Steel takes place in the future when robots instead of humans compete inside the ring. Hugh Jackman’s character has fallen on hard times and owes money Read More …

Movie Review: Thor

I didn’t really dig this film at all, and I knew I wouldn’t. I think I became disinterested when I realized at the very beginning that this movie was going to take place in two different realms. For me, this made things very corny, especially when people from the Asgard realm were on earth in their ridiculous costumes and speaking Read More …

Movie Review: Captain America

This is one of the many comic book character movies that I wanted to see because it didn’t look corny or like a cartoon come alive. I loved this film! I especially love how it made fun of itself, the storyline was perfect and the ending I absolutely loved. Because I am not into comic books, I did not understand Read More …

Movie Review: Water For Elephants

This film stars Robert Pattinson of Twilight fame and Reese Witherspoon. I was happily surprised at how touching and great this movie was. I didn’t know what to expect, but I’d have to say it’s a combination of The Notebook, Titanic, and Michael Jackson’s Neverland all rolled into one! I have to admit that Reese Witherspoon was not very convincing Read More …

The Michael Jackson Immortal World Tour – A Review

If you’ve never seen Michael Jackson live in concert, or even if you have, this show is a wonderful and touching substitute. I felt emotional being in the company of thousands of others who love Michael and his music.  As I watched and enjoyed the show, I spent a lot of time ignoring what was happening on stage and instead Read More …
