Movie Reviews

Reviews of the most recent blockbusters (and maybe the occasional TV show)

Review: The Grey

The first great movie of the year, The Grey is a tense survival thriller with a surprising amount of emotional depth, despite what you might think from seeing the trailers.

Review: Haywire

Steven Soderbergh enters the action genre with Haywire, starring former American Gladiator and MMA fighter Gina Carano. As you might expect when you have an MMA fighter for your star, the fights are great, but what about the rest of the movie?

Review: Contraband

Mark Wahlberg stars as a master smuggler in Contraband but he should have smuggled a sense of fun and a script that wasn’t completely full of heist movie cliches.

Review: Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol

Sending out 2011 with a bang, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol is, arguably, the best entry in the series with great action and a fantastic cast led by a, still awesome, Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt.

Review: Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Robert Downey Jr. is back on another case as Sherlock Holmes and if you liked the first movie, you’ll probably enjoy this sequel, as it as everything that was great about the first movie, just more of it.

Review: In Time

In Time has an interesting premise (you only age until 25 and then have to work to earn more time) but can that translate to an interesting movie?

Review: The Thing (2011)

The 1982 John Carpenter movie The Thing is a beloved horror classic. Can the recently released prequel possibly live up to it’s predecessor?

Review: Real Steel

Delivering summer fun in the middle of October is (*terrible pun alert*) a knockout with fantastic special effects and the ever charming Hugh Jackman in the lead.
