My Thoughts on Transformers

So, what did I think about this film that had fans of the show cringing at the differences? I really liked it and I was a fan of the show. That’s all I am going to say.

My Thoughts on Live Free or Die Hard

I had to do a lot of preparation before going to see this, the forth movie in the Die Hard series. Specifically, I had to see the other three movies. I purchased the box set on Monday and watched the films throughout the week, so I would be all caught up on the adventures of […]

My Thoughts on 1408

I have been a fan of Stephen King for quite a number of years now. I have read a fair number of his novels and they are definitely entertaining reads. It is quite well known, that most of King’s stories have been adapted into film. In that, the King novel that I’m currently (Cell) is […]

Indie Thoughts: Once

It’s time once again for my monthly look at independent film. This month, I went to see the Irish film Once. This film can be classified as a romantic musical. However, unlike most musicals, where singing starts for no apparent reason, this is a more realistic type of musical. The romantic part of the film […]

My Thoughts on Ocean’s Thirteen

You can just that this film is the leftover “threequel,” after last months high profile groups. However, unlike those films, I can confidently say that I thought this film was better than the last one. Also, I think it’s just under par with the first film. There are somethings (like the fact that the plot […]

My Thoughts on Knocked Up

There was a time, not so long ago, when I would have not felt comfortable seeing R-rated comedies like this one. However, films like Wedding Crashers and The 40-Year Old Virgin (a film I was initially freaked out about, but quietly went to see anyway) showed me that those films tend to be the more […]

My Thoughts on Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End

Here is the third and final of the May “threequels” At approximate 2 hours and 50 minutes in length, the movie could have definitely used a bit of trimming. It’s not that hard to follow, like some critics are saying, however it could have done without some of the sub-plots. Specifically, Chow Yun-Fat’s Sao Feng […]

Indie Thoughts: Paris Je T’aime

I made a promise to myself to, once a month, take a break from mainstream films and to see a independent film at my local art house cinema. This month, I decided to see the collaborative film Paris Je T’aime. The film included 18 5-minute short stories, each representing one of the arrondissements of Paris […]

My Thoughts on Shrek the Third

This his is the second of the three big “threequels” this month. So, what do I think about the third film of this popular animated series. First, I think it’s great of kids. As for adults like me, it’s alright. It definitely has a much more simple story than the past two films and there […]

My Thoughts on 28 Weeks Later

So, this is the sequel to the apocalyptic zombie/virus flick 28 Days Later. This was definitely more of a grim and intense movie than the first film. While the first film had a period where nothing much happened, in this film the characters were always in danger (either by “the infected” or the U.S army, […]
