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 […]

From Paris With Love [2010]

John Travolta gives another horrible performance in this pointless action movie about a U.S agent who is sent to Paris in order to stop a terrorist attack. You can guess the rest. A brainless movie with no sense of humor whatsoever (even Travolta looks much too serious in […]

The Ghost Writer [2010]

Brilliant political thriller about a Ghost writer (Ewan McGregor) who is hired to write the memoirs of a former british prime minister (Pierce Brosnan who’s never been better). For the ghost, this is the opportunity of a lifetime, but he gets suspicious when he learns that the guy […]

Toy Story 3 [2010]

 Easily one of the best movies so far this year, this long awaited sequel was definitely worth waiting for. Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the gang find themselves dumped in a day-care center when Andy (who’s now 17), departs for college. I must admit that watching this […]

Splice [2010]

 Disturbing sci-fi movie about two genetic engineers who decide to use human DNA in order to create new hybrids. The result is an incredible creature called Dren. But is she as harmless as she appears to be? Obviously not. After a promising start, the movie becomes predictable until […]
