The Ring: Can You Hear Me Now?

Maybe it was that it was raining heavily and the sky was slate grey and dark. Or maybe I just don’t like Mondays. I don’t know. But once again, I found that I was compelled to watch The Ring –a film I’ve seen countless times, yet for every time I have seen it, “I looked but I didn’t see.” That ... Read More »

Movie Review: The Village

What an absolutely frustrating film. I so wanted to like this, I didn’t want to believe all of the bad reviews I saw, I wanted to believe in the good ones. It’s hard, as a film goer, not to suffer a little anxiety when going in to see a film from a director whose work you like so much. This ... Read More »

Review: The Village

Seems like people are pretty evenly split on this film… I’ll cut to the chase and say that I liked it. Now I didn’t like it enough to buy it on DVD when it comes out, and maybe my positive review comes from the fact that 30 minutes prior I had come out of the very weak comedy Anchorman and ...

The Bourne Supremacy

With the James Bond franchise now Bondless and Mission: Impossible 3 still directorless, where can spy thriller fans turn? Why, to Jason Bourne, of course. Matt Damon reprises his role as the amnesic secret agent in the new sequel to Doug Liman’s excellent 2002 actioner. Liman stays on as producer this time, relinquishing the director’s chair to relative newcomer Paul ... Read More »

The Village

M. Night Shyamalan is one of the few working writer/directors with as much name recognition and drawing power as today’s top actors. His first major film, The Sixth Sense, was a runaway critical and commercial success, earning six Oscar nominations and grossing nearly $700 million world-wide. The deliberate pacing, understated performances, and “twist” ending made the film markedly different from ... Read More »

The Bourne Supremacy

Today was The Bourne Supremacy. The original flick was a pretty good popcorn thriller, and this one is actually an improvement on the original. Taut, quickly paced, with one of the best car chases I’ve seen in quite some time (I don’t know what manufacturer makes that taxi, but I’ll buy three of their cars right now). Matt Damon plays ...

24 Season Finale

This third season of 24 was the weakest season of the show, that being said, it is still in the upper echelon of scripted television. This year started out strong, quickly establishing our primaries, good and bad, and giving the story a direction. The series quickly took a downturn, meandering around with dull subplots, generally spinning its wheels as the ... Read More »

Review: The Bourne Supremacy

In my earlier review of The Bourne Identity, I stated that The Bourne Supremacy had a lot to live up to due to the prior film’s excellence. I’m here to tell you that it didn’t disappoint. Except for a new director, it’s pretty much the same team at work here as in the first film, and there’s a sense of ... Read More »
