Notorious

I am a big fan of Alfred Hitchcock films. He was a wonderful director who did a lot for the world of cinema. I respect such movies as Rear Window, Psycho, and The Birds. That being said I saw Notorious from 1946 and was thoroughly disappointed. The plotline was interesting but it was executed in … Continue reading

Jungle Fever

I recently watch the 1991 movie Jungle Fever for a class about Italian immigrants. It was pretty much unrelated to the class but was a good movie. My only complaint was it was too long and too many characters were not only introduced, but their story lines were followed through until the end. The movie … Continue reading

The Wolfman

AHHH, The Wolfman was soo good! It had all the elements of a good monster, horror movie … gore, ass kicking werewolves, atmosphere, suspense, and just a touch of romance. The movie is a remake of the 1941 movie of the same name. Lawrence Talbot (Benicio Del Toro) returns to his hometown after hearing of … Continue reading

The House of the Devil

I still have mixed feelings on the movie The House of the Devil. It’s from 2009, but looks like it was made in the 1980s. That’s one of the reason why I did like. It was retro and I love all things vintage-like. It’s about a young college student Samantha who takes a short-notice babysitting … Continue reading

The Skeptic

First off, this will be short. The Skeptic was a pretty good ghost story movie, with quite a bit of star power. The movie from 2009 is about Bryan, a lawyer whose aunt died. He separates his wife and moves into his aunt’s huge mansion. The house has a lot of history and he starts remembering … Continue reading

Extract

I was super pumped to see Extract ever sense I saw the trailer. I was sadly disappointed. The movie overall was okay, but it was just boring!! The movie is about Joel Reynolds (Jason Bateman). He started his own extract bottling business and as he gets closer and closer to selling it a whole bunch … Continue reading

The Truth About Cats & Dogs

If you’re looking for a cute yet intelligent romantic comedy, look no further than The Truth About Cats & Dogs. The 1996 comedy starring Janeane Garofalo and Uma Thurman is a story of mistaken identity that could have been completely avoided. Abby (Garofalo) is  a veterinarian with a radio show. When a caller named Brian (Ben Chaplin) asks … Continue reading

Juno

So I needed some cheering up today and turned to Juno. Man, did it do its job! I love this movie, and really could watch it forever. Juno is the perfect character ever written! She’s hilarious, heartfelt, cynical, rebellious and real. The script of this movie may just be the best ever in my opinion. … Continue reading

Inglourious Basterds

After hearing extremely mixed reviews, I finally saw Inglourious Basterds. I don’t know why anyone wouldn’t love the movie! It was really funny with just the right amount of gruesome shots and a good revenge story. There was a good mix of action, sarcasm, sadness and humor. The movie is about Nazi occupied France during the … Continue reading

Valentine’s Day

So last night, on the beloved and despised St. Valentine’s Day, my boyfriend dragged me to see Valentine’s Day, oh wait was that how it went? Either way I really enjoyed the movie. It was the quintessential romantic comedy. The movie was chockfull of as many plot-lines as A-list actors. I couldn’t even begin to … Continue reading
