No Quandary For Old Men

So, I’ve seen No Country for Old Men three times now, and I’m still not feelin’ it. It’s easily the Coen brother’s best movie since 2001′s The Man Who Wasn’t There, but I’m not sure it’s really worthy of all the praise it’s received. [...]

Not to be deterred by sticky floors and little kids, he’s been gracious enough to give us his review of WALL-E.

Disney re-opened their torture chamber to the general public today — in the showing of Wall-E. Your customary G-rated Disney flick? Not exactly. You could say Disney has explored into new territory with their first apocalyptic movie! How fitting. As soon as I [...]

This Is Going To Get Worse Before It Gets Better

So, I know I’ve been on a anti-remake jag lately, I’ll try to make this the last I talk about it for a while. I just couldn’t help it, once I saw that MTV is remaking The Rocky Horror Picture Show. [...]
