Jaws created the summer blockbuster, and Jurassic Park revolutionized it. From groundbreaking effects - whether it be practical or visual, to a classic and moving score that pulls at audience's heartstrings, Jurassic Park is a feat not many direct... Read the full review »

The first half of this film is courageous, deep and inspiring; while the other half is plagued with over-sentiment, a negative sense of whimsy that contradicts the realism that was previously set up, and a dragged out finale; resulting in 2 differ... Read the full review »

A thought provoking movie, Minority Report loops and swirls around in your brain long after the first viewing to traipse the deep thinking segment of your mind, and make you question what you just saw. It has action and thrills to spare, complete... Read the full review »

A disgrace to its source material, and a disaster on all fronts. The film has a whole host of major and minor flaws that it becomes an event to sit down and play the easiest game of I spy for all the mistakes cultivated in this cinematic excreta. Read the full review »

3 movies later and Michael Bay still has no clue how to get us emotionally involved, or how to make a coherent story that brings the audience along for a ride; instead he pelts us with consumerism, patriotism and what can only be described as visu... Read the full review »

There's enough eye candy and visual intrigue to save the film from its cinematic dissonance, bland human characters, and choppy fight sequences. Read the full review »

The Greatest american screenplay ever made. The neo-noir of Jake Gittes is just classic cinema at its best. Roman Polanski weaves a tale of deception, depression, mystery, money and sorrow, to make a film plagued with the human condition, in a ve... Read the full review »

A whimsical and reflective tale of a man exploring the world, and stepping out of his comfort zone to experience a world of beauty, darkness and adventure. Where the film has faults are the dragging ends, and intermittent issues that feel too much... Read the full review »

A visual treat from one of the most innovative directors of this century. The characters are menacing, endearing, and powerful. The narrative is timeless, intriguing, and masterfully crafted. Unfortunately there is a fair bit of nonsense in the fi... Read the full review »

In four simple words, "Much ado about nothing." The film simply kills brain cells, granted, the cars do look cool. In terms of acting and lovable characters? Not much to look for, that's for sure. Read the full review »

This movie had the chance to build on its predecessor, but ultimately, it falls flatter than the original in nearly every aspect. The cars look cool, I can tell you that. Read the full review »

A sloppy, poorly acted derivative hour and forty minute racing sequence. The Fast and the Furious is Point Break with cars - and that doesn't come to the movie's advantage in the slightest. Read the full review »

Fast Five is a departure from the low quality produced by previous installments in the franchise, and provides a fun and entertaining joy ride of an experience, an arguably tough task considering how silly its source material is. Read the full review »

A stone cold neo-noir, jam packed with eye popping action sequences, an intriguing story-line, lovable characters, and contagious humor, L.A Confidential does it all. The genre was at its best with Blade Runner,, but L.A Confidential gives us anot... Read the full review »

If I'm cutting right to the chase, Man of steel's structure is a bit choppy, and it may seem like a loud display of theatrical nonsense at times, but the underlying themes, and the nuanced performances make the experience all worthwhile. Read the full review »

For me, Return of the Jedi is the definitive Star Wars movie, in the sense that it captures everything Star Wars is as a franchise, and displays it with the utmost energy and compassion. Star Wars has always been about destiny, family and good tri... Read the full review »
