Movie Review: Chloe (2010)

CHLOE 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 from … Read More Movie Review: Chloe (2010)

Movie Review: Mammoth (2009)

MAMMOTH 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 attention … Read More Movie Review: Mammoth (2009)

Movie Review: Clash Of The Titans (2010)

CLASH OF THE TITANS 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 of the … Read More Movie Review: Clash Of The Titans (2010)

Movie Review: The Book Of Eli (2010)

THE BOOK OF ELI 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 to … Read More Movie Review: The Book Of Eli (2010)

Movie Review: When In Rome (2010)

WHEN IN ROME 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 of … Read More Movie Review: When In Rome (2010)

Movie Review: Youth In Revolt (2010)

YOUTH IN REVOLT BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLJUNE 22, 2010 “In the movies the good guy gets the girl. In real life it’s usually the prick.” —Nick Twisp and Francois Dillinger (Michael Cera) From the poster or the cover art, you could mistake “Youth In Revolt” as just another comedy, but actually view it and the film becomes so much more. Michael Cera’s prowess in the … Read More Movie Review: Youth In Revolt (2010)

Movie Review: (500) Days Of Summer (2009)

(500) DAYS OF SUMMER BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLJUNE 21, 2010 “Just because she likes the same bizzaro crap you do doesn’t mean she’s your soul mate.” — Rachel Hansen (Chloë Grace Moretz) A gripping relationship drama that tugs at your insides better than any before its time. Hands down, this film is art. You can both literally and figuratively see the brush strokes in this … Read More Movie Review: (500) Days Of Summer (2009)

Movie Review: A Perfect Getaway (2009)

A PERFECT GETAWAY BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLDECEMBER 29, 2009 A visually stimulating, subpar suspense-thriller. From the start of the film, you know that you are in for scenic Hawaiian views with twists and turns, both literally and metaphorically. The film wastes no time delving into the rigamarole of the human perception. Almost in a tropical version of Clue, you try to decipher who the killers … Read More Movie Review: A Perfect Getaway (2009)

Movie Review: Sherlock Holmes (2009)

SHERLOCK HOLMES BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLDECEMBER 25, 2009 Sherlock Holmes was never so bad ass. Great performances all around. Robert Downey Jr. obviously carries the film to heights I do not believe any other actor could carry such a film. This part was made for him. Mark Strong stuck out as well. I almost wish he could have been in something a little more serious … Read More Movie Review: Sherlock Holmes (2009)
