I’ve been more excited for this movie than any other Marvel sequel thus far, and it did not disappoint in any way. This is a hold-onto-your-seat, gasp-ridden, action-packed emotional roller coaster – and I loved every minute of it, right down to the last sequence after the credits. FAIR WARNING: This review contains spoilers and […]

One of the first things I noted about Noah was that it was not accurate. When I shared this with someone, I was immediately answered with, “Well, OF COURSE it’s not accurate! The story is completely made up!” While I felt my intelligence was a little insulted at that, I suppose I ought to clarify: […]
I haven’t covered him much on the blog, but I’ve been a big fan of Jason Bateman for a very long time – even before I got hooked on Arrested Development. He’s adorable and wickedly funny, but this, his feature film directorial debut, was prime comedy brilliance. The plot The story centers on Bateman’s character, […]
Confessions first: I have never seen a single episode of the original Veronica Mars series. But I love Kristen Bell, and the premise seemed like something I would have watched had I known about it when it was on – plus I loved the idea of a Kickstarter campaign for a movie for a series […]
This was one of those random indie finds on Netflix that actually turned out to be a fun one. The story centers on a butter sculpture contest. Laura (Jennifer Garner) is married to Bob, a master butter sculpture artist, which has brought their family lots of prestige and fanfare in their smalltown community. Laura doesn’t […]
This movie was a lot of fun. I had never seen Gina Carano before this (though I’ve seen her since in Fast and Furious 6), but she proved that she’s one to watch in the years to come. She can do badass, and actually serve up a great performance. Carano plays Mallory Kane, a former […]
Before I even get into anything, Kevin Costner stole the effing show. If you’re not prepared to handle that, maybe check out my review of Star Trek Into Darkness if you want some Chris Pine love. Also, fail on the poster. Ripping off The X Files for the tagline? For shame. The story begins with […]
We all know how much I love Sam Worthington, but it’s not without good reason! The man is a rock star. And even though this movie does have a few cliches in it, plot-wise, it was still a fun ride. Nick Cassidy (Worthington) has just escaped from prison, doing time for a high-profile robbery he […]
I have a feeling that because of some of the subject matter, this one flew way under the radar. So unfortunate, because it was hilarious. The press and social media and everybody and their mother, it seemed, made such a big deal over Bridesmaids and yet a movie like this hardly makes a peep. The […]
Weird title, indie movie, you may not have even heard of it, or if you did, you thought it sounded ridiculous and didn’t even bother checking into it. I don’t blame you. Well, that’s not true. I sort of do. If you didn’t even look far enough to find out that it starred two of […]
