I watch bad movies so you can save your money

After.Life [2010]

A young woman (Christina Ricci) dies in a car accident and wakes up in a morgue to find her funeral director (Liam Neeson) preparing her body for the funeral. She feels very much alive but the man keeps telling her that she’s in transition to the afterlife.  So […]

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice [2010]

“I have been searching all over the world for you. You’re going to be a force for good and a very important sorcerer. But for now, you’re my apprentice.” If you’re a fan of magic and/or Nicolas Cage, then you will probably enjoy “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”. The way the folks […]

Diary Of A Wimpy Kid [2010]

Full of jokes, pranks and silliness you’d expect to see in this type of film. But it works, thanks to a very likable cast. “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” is a pleasant surprise, it’s nothing we haven’t seen before, but it’s fun nevertheless. Stay tuned for a very […]

Grown Ups [2010]

Typical Adam Sandler comedy about 5 friends who get together for a fourth of July holiday weekend, and spend their time doing silly stuff. It almost seems like a TV episode; but it’s still watchable, with occasional laughs every now and then. Adam Sandler fans will probably enjoy this […]

Salt [2010]

”Salt” is a straighforward action movie that doesn’t waste anytime with useless dialogue and character development, but instead, takes us on a rollercoaster ride from start to finish. Angelina Jolie plays a CIA agent who is accused by a defector of being a Russian spy. She goes on […]

Edge Of Darkness [2010]

 Mel Gibson’s comeback was supposed to be explosive. It isn’t. His new movie is awfully slow and predictable. Anyone expecting another “Taken” in the making will definitely be disappointed. There isn’t much going on here, and we barely see some action. Too bad. Rating: 2/4

Ben-Hur [1959]

Epic.That’s all there is to say. Winner of 11 academy awards including best picture, best actor (Charlton Heston), and supporting actor, “Ben-Hur” is one of cinema’s most precious treasures. Long (almost 4 hours), but incredibly entertaining and deeply moving. The finale left me breathless! A wonderful movie in […]

The Spy Next Door [2010]

Jackie Chan plays a spy who has to babysit his girlfriend’s children while she’s out of town. It must’ve been very embarassing for Chan to get himself mixed up with such a lame movie. Not even his action scenes can save this from stinking. Billy Ray Cyrus is […]
