Review: Jurassic World

Posted by: Maria Frauzen  //  June 12, 2015 @ 8:21am

Jurassic Park -- what a classic franchise, only this time it fully encompassed what a world of dinosaurs would look like. Every detail of this world was spot on from the title scene (taking the viewers back to the original opening) to the physical design of the world itself. The CGI in this film was impressive and having the 3D element added in made it as realistic as possible.

Posted by: Tony Hinds  //  October 30, 2012 @ 6:18pm

The horror genre is a prolific one. We've all seen a thousand different movies that claim to be scary. But these days, we'll usually settle for shocking or merely disturbing. Seeing a guy hack off one of his own limbs (or in that case of Saw, wimping out and not showing us) has pathetically become the industry standard.

Top Fives: Beach Moments

Posted by: Mike Walkey  //  August 5, 2012 @ 7:28am

I was planning on going to the beach this weekend but one look outside has put a damper on my plans. No need to fret because movies have that ability to provide people with vicarious experiences. I can see the world while never having to leave my living room.

Person of Interest: Ghosts

Posted by: Andrew Burns  //  September 30, 2011 @ 8:53pm

With their sophomore episode ("Ghosts") under their belt, Person of Interest still begs the question: is the series another procedural or a smart drama with an endgame? Jim Caviezel tries a familiar CBS style approach early on with the delivery of some of his lines.

Review: Super 8

Posted by: Andrew Burns  //  June 9, 2011 @ 11:08pm

Even in 8mm those bursts of light follow J.J. Abrams from project to project. Don't attempt to wipe or adjust your camera lens because these camera flares are normal for an Abrams flick.

    Posted by: Mark McLeod  //  April 11, 2007 @ 9:43am

    The name DJ Caruso may not be familiar to most moviegoers. He's been in the director's seat for a couple of movies that, despite starring the likes of Angelina Jolie, Al Pacino, Matthew McConaughey, and Val Kilmer, have not been seen by large audiences.

    Review: E.T. - 20th Anniversary Edition

    Posted by: Jeremy Maron  //  March 29, 2002 @ 6:38pm

    You walk into a movie theatre and you are greeted by the sight of dozens upon dozens of children holding balloons. Their young voices are piercing the air in a collective whine, and it is your second nature to shudder and briefly consider getting a refund or exchanging your tickets for a film with a harsher rating.
