I could watch this movie again and again -- so long as I concentrated only on the spectacular images.

Director David Yates's HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE is consistently visually stunning -- a real feast for the eyes. The story -- not so much. Always entertaining but rarely more than mildly so, the movie takes over an hour of just taxiing around the cinematic runway before it attempts liftoff. The result is a movie that is never ...

Few films have been as misunderstood as Stephen Spielberg's A.I.

50. A.I. Artificial Intelligence Few films have been as misunderstood as Stephen Spielberg's A.I. - Artificial Intelligence. Originally intended to be a Stanley Kubrick production, when Spielberg announced that he was taking over the project after Kubrick's death, the media and critical community were skeptical at best. I remember viewing the ...

As Sam tries to kill the time until his contract is over, he starts seeing things.

"The power of the moon," intones the narrator in what appears to be a television commercial advertising an energy company, "the power of the future." It's a future of clean energy, thanks to a certain mineral on the moon. On the dark side of the moon, a lone worker named Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) toils away, fixing any problems with the huge helium...

The film was consistently entertaining and the story involving.

Director J.J. Abrams (the co-creator of "Lost") has finally released his much anticipated take on the classic "Star Trek" series, which consists of an almost uncountable number of television episodes as well as numerous movies. Before reviewing STAR TREK, I think it behooves me first to admit where I fall in the fan spectrum. I've probably seen most...

Both over- and underrated.

The Movie Knowing (not to be confused with the 2007 Nicolas Cage flick Next) is one of those rarities: a movie that’s both over- and underrated. Roger Ebert has called it one of the best sci-fi movies ever. It so isn’t, but the movie is also nowhere near as bad as some would have you believe. Ebert is fascinated by the film’s philosophical ...

Wildly uneven, ultimately rewarding.

Tokyo! consists of three short films made by three non-Japanese directors. It’s difficult to say what unites the films thematically, except that they were all shot in the same metropolis, and the filmmakers seem to have agreed to include something crazy in each segment. This wildly uneven, ultimately rewarding movie can best be summed up this way: ...

Compelling science fiction disaster film.

KNOWING is a solemn, thoughtful, and compelling science fiction disaster film, and human drama. Director Alex Proyas directs his most significant, if not memorable film since DARK CITY. I, ROBOT pales in comparison to this film's meaningful messages and horrifying disaster sequences. Sure, the film's plot dives into deep science fiction territory, ...

A sex orgy for your eyes.

I've been obsessing over this movie ever since news of its production was first released and I'm very (very very) glad to say that it did not suck. Nor was it mediocre. No, in fact, it was pretty damn good. Being a huge fan of the graphic novel I (along with many other fanboys) was afraid that the original story would be butchered in the translation...

Nostalgically dreamlike.

Thank god for movies designed to scare children. Kids need horror movies too, you know, and Coraline, beneath its squeaky kid friendly exterior lies some pretty disturbing stuff. It starts off safe enough with Coraline finding a secret world complete with parents that don't neglect her, but gradually this perfect world becomes perverted and ...

Beautifully shot.

Beautifully shot and with an interesting progression of events, Blindness reminds us that if everyone was suddenly blind, life would really suck. People helplessly crawling around the streets, being raped, beaten to death over food; that sort of thing. I've always had a soft spot for anything post apocalyptic, and more so for one this particularly ...
