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

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 […]

Death at a funeral [2010]

Surprisingly funny movie. I didn’t expect much from it mainly because I’m not a big fan of Martin Lawrence and Chris Rock. I was pleasantly surprised though. I’ts actually quite entertaining, with a very funny cast especially Danny Glover and Peter Dinklage (who also stars in the 2007 […]

Date Night [2010]

You’d expect more from Steve Carell and Tina Fey, especially when they’re in the same movie together. But “Date Night” can’t avoid cliches, a cheesy dialogue and a predictable plot. Mark Wahlberg doesn’t add much to it; he’s one of the best actors out there, and surely he […]

Kick-Ass [2010]

Mark Strong has had a busy year playing villains (“Sherlock Holmes”, “Robin Hood), and it fits him perfectly. That guy really knows how to make the audience hate his guts. As for the movie, one shouldn’t expect too much from it, otherwise you might end up disappointed. It’s […]

Inception [2010]

”Inception” is a movie that requires a lot of attention. And like most of Christopher Nolan’s movies (“Memento”, “The prestige”…), it will take your brain on a rollercoaster ride. The story is so beautifully crafted, that it’s almost impossible to find a plot hole. So far this year, […]

The Joneses [2010]

Clever, well written movie about a “Stealth Marketting Firm” that hires a fake “perfect” family in order to impress the resident of a small town with their cool gadgets, sexy car and a great lifestyle. Funny and incredibly entertaining, though it becomes a bit dramatic towards the end. But […]

The Wolfman [2010]

 Here’s another classic monster that returns to the screen after years of absence. The comeback is good, but it’s not excellent. I guess what bugged me here is the final battle that has hollywood written all over it (a la “The Incredible Hulk”, and “Iron Man” which were […]

Gone Baby Gone [2007]

 Ben Affleck should definitely quit his acting job and get behind the camera permanently because Gone Baby gone is a terrific movie. Two detectives are investigating the kidnapping of a little girl, but they soon find themselves dragged into a dark and very disturbing world. The entire cast […]
