Warrior [2011] ★★★½

A movie that gives you rooting interest, as soon as it opens, and keeps coming at you, could best be described as a triumph. “Warrior”, from director Gavin O’ Connor takes place in the world of mixed martial arts. It is violent, blunt, powerful. You name it. But […]

What’s Your Number? [2011] ★★½

Start hating me now, but despite its silly and cheesy premise, there’s something likable about this romantic comedy, starring Anna Faris and Chris “Captain America” Evans (yep that’s his nickname now). If you’re in the mood for mindless entertainment, look no further. Personally, I had no expectations whatsoever, […]

The Help [2011] ★★★½

Nothing heats up an Oscar race like an underdog for best picture. On the surface, “The Help” sounds like a movie that’s been done so many times before: the well-to-do white folks and their black servants in a Southern Town in the 1960’s. But it doesn’t take this captivating […]

Senna [2011]

Fantastic documentary chronicles the life and death of Formula one legend Ayrton Senna, from his days as a go-kart racer, to his debut as a professional driver, his rivalry with Alain Prost (that includes him winning the title three times), and ultimately his tragic death on May 1st […]

Father Of Invention [2011] ★★

Kevin Spacey is a pleasure to watch in anything. Ok maybe not in “Fred Claus” or…anyway you see where I’m going. Who doesn’t like Kevin Spacey? The Spacey appeal is what makes the otherwise forgettable “Father Of Invention” go down easy. Spacey plays Robert Axel, one of those […]

Midnight In Paris [2011] ★★★½

Looking for an excellent movie to watch? I’d vouch for “Midnight In Paris”, a romantic and magical film from the artist known as Woody Allen. Allen may have missed with his previous movie “You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger”, but “Midnight In Paris” is both entertaining and […]

Winnie The Pooh [2011] ★★★

Only those with no sense of nostalgia would fail to appreciate the magic in this sweet, gentle animated movie. I’m talking Winnie The Pooh, the stuffed bear, and his friends, Christopher Robin, Piglet, Tigger, Owl, and Eeyore the donkey. The movie generates smiles from start to finish as […]

Drive [2011] ★★★½

Fasten your seat belts for the mind blowing “Drive”, an incredible movie that has Steve McQueen’s bad-ass attitude written all over it, and style to rival the best car pictures ever made. Damn, it felt good. If there ever was an award for coolest movie of the year, […]
