Videodrome [1983]

A landmark film of the commercial/independent movement of the 1980’s, David Cronenberg’s story of violence and television still rings true today. Max Renn (James Woods) is a cable station operator who begins to see his life spin out of control when his abdomen suddenly grows a vagina-like opening […]

The Last Exorcism [2010]

Documentary style horror movie about a reverend who agrees to take part in exposing exorcism as a fraud. Working with a film crew, he chooses at random a plea letter from a man who claims that his daughter has been possessed by a demon. Prior to the exorcism, the reverend […]

Everybody’s Fine [2009]

Exceptional movie about a widower (Robert DeNiro who’s never been better) who goes on a road trip in order to reconnect with his children who bailed on a family reunion. He sets out to see his artist son in NYC, his daughter the ad executive in Chicago, his son the […]

Tron: Legacy [2010]

Can I tell you how surprised I am that I actually enjoyed this movie? To be honest, I expected this sequel to be as lame as the 1982 movie. But boy was I wrong. It may not have been the best movie of 2010, but I have no […]

Gulliver’s Travels [2010]

The Tourist [2010]

Johnny Depp looks bored out of his mind as an American visiting Venice to mend a broken heart. Angelina Jolie plays the woman who crosses his path, and uses him as a decoy to convince the police that he is in fact her wanted lover. The two lack […]

Little Fockers [2010]

In a year of craptaculars, “Little Fockers” deserves burial at the bottom of the sea (“Skyline” looks like you’re off the hook). No one expected Shakespeare, but Paul Weitz’s failure to cap his franchise with any real meaning can easily be ranked as one of the biggest disappointments […]

The Big Lebowski [1998]

One big funny joke, courtesy of the Coen brothers, about an unemployed slacker better known as “The Dude” (Jeff Bridges in a one of a kind hilarious role) who’s mistaken for a big shot millionaire of the same name, and then gets hired by the guy to deliver […]
