Monday Review: The Karate Kid

The Karate Kid just won the award for surprise of the year. It's good. No, like actually bona-fide good. While remakes of 80s films might be in vogue it's been tough going, but Karate Kid nai...   more

Monday Review: Splice

People seemed to like/hate my Prince of Persia review so I figured I'd start these up again for now. I got behind as I should also have a review for Get Him to the Greek, but I'll just say that i...   more



Why you might see me before your movies this weekend

You may go to a movie this weekend, and if you get there early you might see the "First Look." It's those ads before the movies that play. While not paying attention to the screen you may see s...   more



I'm Thankful for Destructoid

Hi Destructoid Community (of which I count myself a proud member), I'm thankful for you. I'm thankful you read my posts on weekends. I'm thankful you yell at me when you disagree with a post...   more



Monday Review: Paranormal Activity and Couples Retreat

The slow burn. It's a lost art in most film genres, let alone horror. Right now most horror consists of getting in, killing people quickly and shoving a few sudden appearances by the bad guy ...   more

Monday Review: Zombieland and Whip It

Zombieland has one flaw, and its so minuscule that it's almost not worth mentioning, but for any zombie movie lover it is important. See, it should really be called "Infectedland" as, accord...   more

Monday Review: 9

What an absolutely gorgeous and intriguing yet entirely underdeveloped and sadly shallow world the film 9 takes place in. It's like watching a painting come to life, and then realizing that t...   more

Monday Review: 9


Monday Review: Extract and The September Issue

Monday Review: Inglorious Basterds and Post Grad

Monday Review: District 9 and Ponyo

There is one key thing the best science fiction films have in common, and that is that if you took out the aliens or lasers or spaceships or androids they'd still be compelling stories. Despi...   more

Monday Review: G.I. Joe

As a film critic I was pretty sure that G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra was going to be the worst film of the summer, but one must do what one must do. I thus headed into the theater and firmly s...   more

Monday Review: G.I. Joe


Monday Review: (500) Days of Summer

The set-up for (500) Days of Summer is hardly anything new, as the film readily admits. The story of boy meets girl is as old as stories go, and has been told on film so many times that even ...   more

Monday Review: Year One and The Proposal

If you're not a film critic and don't see every romantic comedy ever made it's often easy to assume that we're all stuck up jerks who don't like fun, love or mushy stuff. The actual case is t...   more
