Hammer Time
by Cas Ruffin on Dec 13th, 2010

Here’s the full trailer for Thor showing us Chris Hemsworth being booted out of the celestial heavens…only to enter a new heaven: the lips of Natalie Portman.  But seriously, we get the inexplicable speaking of English in Sky High, some hammer swinging, Michael Bay explosions, and the promise of two worlds colliding, literally.

Review: Tangled
by Owen Javellana on Dec 7th, 2010

It’s hard to praise a children’s movie for being nostalgic, because children have the attention spans of goldfish, and haven’t been sentient long enough to be nostalgic about anything. But that’s exactly what Disney has achieved with Tangled, a well-made, story-book feature that feels like the glory days of the Disney musical (back before the term meant a vehicle for Zac Efron).

Twilight: Origins
by Owen Javellana on Nov 19th, 2010

A young girl is torn between between unhealthy affairs with two men, one of whom may be a werewolf. Also, she spends a lot of time gazing to their eyes in the woods. How is this movie NOT Twilight?

Review: Unstoppable
by Cas Ruffin on Nov 12th, 2010

With a plot that is way too similar to Speed, Tony Scott delivers us a movie that’s not quite as explosive as a missile the size of the Chrysler building in Unstoppable.

Review: Due Date
by Owen Javellana on Nov 11th, 2010

A lot of ideas sound good on paper. Communism. Robot prostitutes. A comedy starring Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis. But these things don’t always work out in real life.

Review: For colored Girls
by Cas Ruffin on Nov 5th, 2010

I went back and forth about whether I wanted to write this review. It’s not a movie our target demographic would normally watch. Seeing as that it’s getting a lot of play on the blogs and that I put in a conscious effort to put my butt in the theater specifically for a review, I figured, “What the hell?”

As it being an election week, in America, we have compiled a list of election movies worth watching. These films elicit notions of the campaign trails, political conspiracies, and the overall shadiness that politicians go through to win a position. In addition, if you’re thinking of being an electoral candidate in the future, maybe you can learn a few lessons from these movies as well…

Review: Jackass 3D
by Cas Ruffin on Oct 19th, 2010

The gags on Jackass 3D- and Jackass, in general -fall into a handful of categories: flying objects and people, vomit-inducing pranks, self-injury, injury to others, animal provocation, and doing something funny while dressed in costume. If you’re down with that, then this movie is for you.

REVIEW: It's Kind Of A Funny Story
by Owen Javellana on Oct 7th, 2010

Self-descriptive movie titles have toned down their pride a bit since The Greatest Story Ever Told, and I’m happy to see that this movie’s name doesn’t jinx it. It’s endearing, entertaining, and yes, it’s kind of funny.
