Movie Review: The United States of Leland (2003)

Leland is a straightforward drama, putting all the cards on the table and allowing you to see the aftermath of unexplainable death in its truest form.

Movie Review: Thirst (2010)

The film’s plot is transparent, the dialogue unbelievable garbage, and the ending is damn near incomprehensible. I would definitely not watch this film again and wonder how anyone thought it was a good idea to put this out into the world besides the writers and director.

Movie Review: The Good Guy (2010)

The Good Guy, at times, can be painstakingly slow, but endure and you will find that it is worth the perseverance. The film comes off fresh, sincere, and real, qualities lacking in many romantic comedies today, especially from first time writer-directors.

Movie Review: Toy Story 3 (2010)

“Great end to the series. Though it does not fulfill my inner child to the fullest, it was a great final adventure. You will laugh, you will cry, and you will want to see it again.”

Movie Review: The Runaways (2010)

The Runaways is exactly what you would expect. Grunge music, foul language, and the female revolution. No more, no less.

Movie Review: Trucker (2009)

For first time director James Mottern’s first endeavor, he takes what ever Indy director dreams of and makes it a reality: Success.

Movie Review: From Paris With Love (2010)

FROM PARIS WITH LOVE Review by: Christopher HaskellJune 23, 2010 After watching “From Paris With Love” on two separate occasions, I found that if you can stomach the Travolta-less first twenty minutes, you are left with nothing but explosions, over-the-top dialogue, and cheesy twist after cheesy twist. In not his best venture, Travolta plays bald man Charlie Wax, the “bad” good guy whose unorthodox … Read More Movie Review: From Paris With Love (2010)

Movie Review: Chloe (2010)

CHLOE Review by: Christopher HaskellJune 21, 2010 “Chloe” is a fatal attraction thriller that does not hide its true nature; with the lead starlet dressing from bare naked to brassier within the opening credits of the film. Amanda Seyfried takes on the role of a woman-for-hire who, despite her apparent naivety, is far from innocent. With Julianna Moore, Liam Neeson, and the young boy … Read More Movie Review: Chloe (2010)

Movie Review: Mammoth (2009)

MAMMOTH Review by: Christopher HaskellJune 22, 2010 Enter into “Mammoth” with an open mind. The film is slow and rather uneventful, yet real and inspiring. No stunning performances or moments that stuck out. The film felt natural and gave off a documentary-like quality. The story is nicely done, with the editing a huge factor in the storytelling. Every cut mattered. Each cut directed your … Read More Movie Review: Mammoth (2009)

Movie Review: Clash Of The Titans (2010)

CLASH OF THE TITANS Review by: Christopher HaskellJune 22, 2010 Right off the bat, let me make it clear that I have yet to view the original (not from a lack of effort however). From what I hear, the original is not that great. Sam Worthington has made quite the action adventure run in the last year with Terminator: Salvation, Avatar, and now Clash … Read More Movie Review: Clash Of The Titans (2010)

Movie Review: The Book Of Eli (2010)

THE BOOK OF ELI Review by: Christopher HaskellJune 22, 2010 Where do I begin? Being a video game aficionado, “The Book Of Eli” creates a world that every gamer would love to explore. Guns, knives, bows and arrows. The great workings of an action adventure game, along the lines of the “Borderlands” and “Fallout 3” franchises. I wanted to wander in Eli’s shoes; wanted … Read More Movie Review: The Book Of Eli (2010)

Movie Review: When In Rome (2010)

WHEN IN ROME Review by: Christopher HaskellJune 22, 2010 Take all the romantic comedies you have ever seen and give them a whimsical Disney-like essence and you will get “When In Rome”. Much like this year’s “Leap Year”, they fail to have any sort of “wow” factor. Instead, they become drivel with “name” actors/actresses thrown into the molds, bringing no sort of character out … Read More Movie Review: When In Rome (2010)
