Morning Glory

“Morning Glory” consistently dingles and dangles on the thin line of plain corniness and genuine heart. But what makes this film watch able is Rachel McAdams. She transforms herself into someone open-minded and vulnerable. Read More

Rating: ★★½☆
Love and Other Drugs

Finally we have received an adult romantic-comedy that hits on all levels. “Love and Other Drugs” is funny, sexy and heartfelt.

Jake Gyllenhaal plays Jamie Randall, a Pfizer rep that is just getting used to his new pharmaceutical business. But no worries he has help from his veteran partner Bruce Winston, (Oliver Platt) who insist that he uses that “swinging dick” mentality and makes some money. Though at first he has plenty of trouble hitting his quota, he gets the hang of it. So much so that when the drug “Viagra” comes out, he’s first in line to sell it. Read More

Rating: ★★★☆
The Expendables

“The Expendables” is written and directed by Sylvester Stallone, so right away you know your getting an immediate downgrade in quality. About mid way through the sucker I started to wonder why on earth studios would ever put out this movie? You would think an 80’s action-star rebirth would be fun, campy and enjoyable? But trust me it’s not. Read More

Rating: ★★½☆
Unstoppable

The definition of “Unstoppable” simply means a force that is not capable of being stopped. In this case it’s the title of the new Tony Scott – Denzel Washington film. It’s also the meaning of the freight train that’s  going 70 M.P.H, without a person on board.

Due Date
“Due Date” starts off on the wrong foot and concludes with possibly no feet at all. That’s not to say the middle of “Due Date” isn’t funny, but still not as memorable as Phillips last film “The Hangover” Read More
Rating: ★★☆☆
Toy Story 3

The time has come, Andy has gotten older and his heading to college. This day was obviously inevitable, but never the less heartbreaking to the gang of toys, that Andy once played with for hours on end.
