KICK-ASS [2010] review

April 18, 2010

It is important to note the rating of the movie you are about to see, especially if it turns out to be rated R.  I only realized KICK-ASS was rated R right before the movie.  Therefore, it was a very unexpected movie in terms of language and violence.  The R rating was key, I believe, to making this movie feel real, or as real as any movie with an 11-year old girl who can kick scores of mens’ asses.

LOST 6×11 “Happily Ever After”

April 6, 2010

If Hurley is the soul of LOST, then the Desmond and Penny relationship is the heart.  Desmond has and remains my favorite character on LOST, and the only character I really care about in a personal way.  More after the break, including spoilers . . . .

FANTASTIC MR FOX [2009] review

April 2, 2010

FANTASTIC MR. FOX is one of those movies that just goes leaving me thinking, “oh wait, this is just it?  Ok.”  In this case it was not a bad thing at all.  The movie did not announce itself as a movie, just a quick, take no breaks following of Mr. Fox.
