It’s Time to Say ‘Goodbye’ to Star Wars

You and Star Wars have had a good run. You saw the original movies when you were young and grew to love them more and more with age.

Watson Reviews “The Amazing Spider-Man”

“The Amazing Spider-Man” is a reboot of a blockbusting franchise that got off to a good start with “Spider-Man” in 2002, web-slung to towering new heights with “Spider-Man 2” in 2004, and lost its footing with “Spider-Man 3” in 2007. While each of those films were helmed by horror maestro Sam Raimi, this redo is… Continue reading Watson Reviews “The Amazing Spider-Man”

I Love Movies, but I Hate Yours: Cars 2, Transformers 3, and Bad Teacher

"CARS 2" The problem with "Cars 2" is that it's produced by Pixar, a film studio that is automatically preceded by a reputation for producing groundbreaking masterpiece after groundbreaking masterpiece. Ever since it made its first full-length feature in 1995, the animation company has been responsible for some of the most highly regarded movies of… Continue reading I Love Movies, but I Hate Yours: Cars 2, Transformers 3, and Bad Teacher

I Love Movies, But I Hate Yours: The Hangover II and Kung Fu Panda 2

The Hangover Part II In a predictable world, Todd Phillips' "The Hangover Part II" would be utterly dreadful. After all, it is an over-marketed sequel to one of 2009's biggest box-office smashes, an R-rated comedy which was essentially a much better orchestrated copycat of 2000's "Dude, Where's My Car?" set in Sin City, aka Las… Continue reading I Love Movies, But I Hate Yours: The Hangover II and Kung Fu Panda 2

What We’re Listening to (May 2011)

Architecture in Helsinki--Moment Bends Fans of this Australian ensemble have been waiting for this album for what feels like an eternity. Then when it finally dropped, it was so under the radar that it took a whole month for me to check it out. Architecture evolves so quickly it would make a Creationist's head spin.… Continue reading What We’re Listening to (May 2011)

Roger Ebert will Haunt Your Dreams

First off, just so this little blurb doesn't reek of cyber-bullying, I have nothing but respect for Roger Ebert. He's made some pretty brainless comments, like when he made his feelings known about how video games could never be considered "art." But, he's also held some astonishingly relevent stances--like his opinions about how new 3D… Continue reading Roger Ebert will Haunt Your Dreams
