The Painted Veil [2006]

“When love and duty are one, grace is within you.” Set in 1920 London, this engaging drama tells the story of a bacteriologist who learns that his wife is having an affair. As a punishment, he forces her to accompany him to China, where an outbreak of cholera […]

Going The Distance [2010]

What makes this romantic movie worth watching is the chemistry between the two leads (Justin Long and Drew Barrymore). Without chemistry, it could have been a disaster. There’s a lot of vulgarity involved, and the “F” word is used over a hundred times, but all is forgiven, thanks to a very […]

The Last Airbender [2010]

“The Last Airbender” is a dreadful movie. And I think it’s the best way to describe it because quite frankly, I can’t see how anyone could enjoy it.  Directed by M. Night Shyamalan, we follow the story of Aang, a young successor to a line a avatars whose […]

Rope [1948]

“We killed for the sake of danger and for the sake of killing.” Quite possibly one of Hitchcock’s best movies, telling the story of two young men who strangle their classmate, hide his body in their appartment, and throw a party for his friends and family in order […]

The Damned United [2009]

Interesting piece of english football history tells the story of Brian Clough, the manager who led Derby County to glory in the 70’s, and how he failed to do the same with Leeds United a few years later. The story focuses on his 44 days of reign as Leeds manager, […]

Orphan [2009]

“I think people should always try to take the bad things that happen to them in their lives, and turn them into something good. Don’t you?” Another horror movie in a time when scary movies aren’t that “scary” anymore. “Orphan” is the story of a family that decides to adopt […]

Valkyrie [2008]

Interesting slice of German history about an army officer named Colonel Claus Van Stauffenberg (well played by Tom Cruise) who is convinced that Germany must rid itself of Adolphe Hitler after things got out of control during the events of world war 2. He is recruited by German […]

Che [2008]

Never expect too much from a movie, otherwise you might end up disappointed, or in my case, frustrated. From the moment I heard that Benicio Del Toro was playing the role of Ernesto Che Guevara, I knew it was going to be big. Boy was I wrong. Now don’t get me wrong, […]
