Creation [2009]

Interesting look at Charles Darwin’s struggle with God and himself when he decided to write his book about the origin of species. Paul Bettany gives a fine performance, but the movie is uneven and slow at times. Nevertheless, its still worth checking out simply for curiosity purpose. Rating:  […]

Chloe [2009]

Chloe” is an erotic thriller that tries to be clever and original but fails miserably. Call it Fatal Attraction for lesbians. Julianne Moore plays the woman who hires an escort to seduce her husband, whom she suspects of cheating. At first I thought this was going somewhere; I […]

Hot Tub Time Machine [2010]

Clever movie about a group of friends who, after a crazy night of partying and drinking in a ski resort hot tub, wake up in the year 1986. I knew exactly what to expect from this raunchy comedy, and I was completely satisfied. It’s “Back To The Future” […]

Knight And Day [2010]

Tom Cruise’s career seemed to be dead and buried after his famous act on Oprah’s couch a few years ago. Since then, we barely saw him on screen. “Knight And Day” might be the movie that gets him back on his feet. It’s an action/comedy movie, and I […]

The A-Team [2010]

Finally a movie worthy of being called “entertaining”. “The A-Team” is strictly a popcorn movie with plenty of action to satisfy fans of the genre. I didn’t expect much of it, but Im glad to say that I enjoyed it a lot.   A very funny cast that includes Liam […]

Prince Of Persia [2010]

Movies based on video games tend to suck. With that said, I didn’t hate “Prince Of Persia”. But I wasn’t amazed by it either. It’s a movie that could have been so much better if only they didn’t pay so much attention to those damn CGI’s. Now don’t […]

The Karate Kid [2010]

The original “Karate Kid” is one of my all time favorite movies. And when I first heard about the remake, I had my doubts. I mean Jackie Chan as Mr. Miyagi? Really? Boy was I wrong; the “new” Karate Kid is actually very well done and a lot […]

Letters To Juliet [2010]

Predictable, yet enjoyable movie about a woman who travels to italy and joins a group of volunteers who respond to letters seeking advice about love. Nothing new here, but the beautiful location and the delightful performances (especially Vanessa Redgrave) make this worth watching. Gael Garcia Bernal has a […]

Moon [2009]

I guess I’ll never quite understand why I loved this movie so much, but I really did. It’s one of my favorite films of the year and it makes me sad that it didn’t get the attention it deserves. It’s a superior science fiction movie that ranks among […]
