An Officer and a Gentlemen Movie Review

“An Officer and a Gentleman” is a military movie wrapped around a love story.  It’s about a social drop out who enlists in the Navy’s Officer Training program and unwillingly falls in love with one of the nearby town’s girls.  The trainee is Sean Mayo (Richard Gere) and the girl is Paula (Debra Winger).  Also […]

American Wedding Movie Review

The first two “American Pie” flicks are incredibly funny and charming.  They’re both crude but allow us to really care about the characters (rare in today’s comedies based on gross out).  “American Wedding” is made in the same fashion.  Most of the characters are back and so is the charm of the first two. The […]

American Pie Movie Review

In time in which high school kids are made out to be nothing more than either disgusting and brainless, or sweet and have an incredibly and annoying vast vocabulary and sentence structure, “American Pie” is a champion of showing us what really goes on in the hallways and in bedrooms after school. It’s crude, gross, […]

Always Movie Review

One thing that Steven Spielberg is a master of is presenting us with the most beautiful imagery and telling a terrific story while doing so.  His 1985 film “Always” is a great example of this.  In the movie, a remake of 1944’s “A Guy Named Joe”, Pete (Richard Dreyfus), a pilot fire fighter dies in […]

Aliens Movie Review

Jim Cameron’s “Aliens” is Ridley Scott’s “Alien” on steroids.  It’s harsher, darker, and much more violent and action packed.  It’s all the more better.  In the original, we were given a vivid monster that hid in the shadows and mercilessly pounced on its victims.  Here, we get the same, only with Marines, machine guns, and […]

Alien vs Predator Movie Review

One of my friends told me that since he was about fourteen, or something, he had been waiting for “Freddy vs. Jason” to be made.  I actually never followed up with him to see if the wait was worth it (I know that I would be definitely pissed if I were him), but it did […]

Alien Resurrection Movie Review

Okay.  I’m not going to waste time with clever writing.  Witty puns, double meanings, and such.  No need for analogies or sentiments.  I’m just going to get to the point; make it quick and easy, simple and painless.  Alien: Resurrection sucked.  I don’t think that there was an entire moment in which I enjoyed the […]

Alien 3 Movie Review

Alien 3 is a great looking, depressing film.  It has the same terrific effects of the first two, but director David Fincher (Fight Club, Seven) adds a touch of religious and death thematics.  The mix is an odd one.  I liked the movie, I liked it a lot.  I just could never really be involved […]

A Night at the Roxbury Movie Review

The ever popular skit of the two socially dense night clubbers on Saturday Night Live, which featured Will Ferrell and Chris Katan was one the was, without question, aimed for destination:Hollywood.  It was always a favorite on the show and featured a long list of celebrity cameo appearances: from Jim Carrey in one, to Helen […]

A Few Good Men Movie Review

I remember when my mom would always watch “Columbo” during the day.  She still catches the reruns every so often, but before, the TV series about the unconventional and quirky police detective was a favorite past time of hers.  The show always delivered the exact, basic formula; the killer does away with whoever he needs […]
