The Town [2010] ★★★½

“The Town” is by far one of the best movies of the year. It’s a clever, well directed film, with a solid cast and story; I couldn’t ask for more. I loved Ben Affleck’s directorial debut “Gone Baby Gone”, but he outdid himself here. What’s more, he gives […]

The Hole [2010]

Lame “horror” flick about two brothers who find a mysterious hole in their new house’s basement that leads to the darkest places of their fears and nightmares. You can probably guess the rest. Even the actors look rather bored here; they try to deal with the issue as […]

I Love You Phillip Morris [2010]

 I was very disappointed with Jim Carrey’s latest movie. We don’t get to see much of him anymore, but I always expect something good from him. Not the case with “I Love You Philip Morris”, a movie about a married man who turns gay after a sudden accident. His new […]

Eat Pray Love [2010]

I guess the best way to describe this movie would be to say that it’s not for every taste. It might appeal more to women of a certain age, and probably to those who are familiar with the book. I’ve never read the book, but I can honestly say […]

Diminished Capacity [2008]

“Time is the guest of the north.” Matthew Broderick leads a talented cast in this  almost forgotten movie about a journalist suffering from memory loss who travels to his hometown in order to reconnect with his sick uncle (Alan Alda) and his old high school flame (Virginia Madsen). Together they travel […]

Green Zone [2010]

 “It is not for you to decide what happens here.” Matt Damon teams up once again with his “Bourne” director Paul Greengrass in this war thriller set in Iraq. My expectations were high, so eventually I was pretty disappointed. It’s not a bad movie, but it wasn’t as […]

Jonah Hex [2010]

Sloppy wannabe western movie about a bounty hunter (Josh Brolin) who must find and kill the man who murdered his wife and son years ago (why bother with someting more original right?). I’m a fan of Josh Brolin and John Malkovich, but I think they both deserve something better than this. As […]

Across The Universe [2007]

If you’re a fan of The Beatles and/or musicals, chances are you’ve already seen and enjoyed “Across The Universe”. I like The Beatles, but I think this movie is a big lame excuse to introduce 30 of their songs in a long, sometimes uneven story (there are characters named Prudence and […]

Machete [2010]

“They F****d with the wrong Mexican” Violence is key in most of Robert Rodriguez’s movies. And it’s probably the reason why they’re so popular (recall “Desperado”, “Planet Terror”…). “Machete” is no exception; it’s a straighfoward action flick, and it’s all about revenge. Dany Trejo is well cast as […]
