'Haywire' review - A superb action film that's destined to be a cult classic

Have you ever seen a classic Jackie Chan or Bruce Lee movie? Remember the surprising speed and spontaneity of the fights Lee or Chan would have? When those men fought, you could feel the pain. Haywire’s Gina Carano exudes the kind of authenticity of the great action stars of old. And she should, being an actual award-winning mixed martial artist. Thanks to an adept script by Lem Dobbs (The Score) and creative directing by Steven Soderbergh (Ocean’s Eleven), Haywire might be the grittiest action thriller since Taken

'Jack the Giant Killer' follows the trend of taking old stories to new heights

Even before watching the trailer for Jack the Giant Killer, I had a feeling I knew what I was in for. The title easily gave it away, but the change isn’t unexpected. After all, “Jack and the Beanstalk” doesn’t exactly pack as big of a punch as Jack the Giant Killer. While it’s not another Snow White, it is another fairytale remake, which I’ve been a bit sceptical about lately. That’s not to say that every remake is or isn’t doing it right, but I’m starting to warm-up to all these revamped films. I’ll be honest—I rather like seeing the stories we’re so familiar with spiced up with new technology or told with an interesting twist.

THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS has its moments (Review)

Score:

I liked The Men Who Stare at Goats. A lot of critics didn't. It's certainly not the funniest movie of the year, or even the best satire, but it's a good farce with strong performances and some very ridiculous moments. I'm convinced that adding George Clooney to any cast is worth an extra review star itself.

AMELIA is more lost than Earhart (Review)

"Amelia" isn't going to break any box office awards this weekend. When I saw it Thursday at midnight, my friend and I were the absolute only two people in the theater. Everyone else was seeing "Saw VI" and "Paranormal Activity." It was kind of fun since I could be loud and obnoxious the whole time, but I quickly understood why "Saw VI" might have been a better choice. "Amelia" is the first movie in a while that I almost walked out on.

Just because Earhart is lost, doesn't mean the movie about her has to be. "Amelia" is aimless and feels interminable, though it's only an hour and 51 minutes long. I entered the theater excited to learn more about Amelia Earhart, but left confused, worn out, and angry.
