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: The Karate Kid


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: Paranormal Activity and Couples Retreat


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: Pandorum and Surrogates

In the future, when interplanetary space travel is required because earth is about to be destroyed and we need to find a new planet, if the ships that are built are huge hulking things of met...   more

Monday Review: Pandorum and Surrogates


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

It's pretty clear that at some point in time Mike Judge was a comic genius. Anyone who fails to see the satirical humor in Beavis and Butthead or who doesn't appreciate the comedic masterpi...   more

Monday Review: Taking Woodstock

I was not alive to experience Woodstock, and since the hippie movement (or anything like it) doesn't seem to be coming back any time soon I seriously doubt I'll have the pleasure of ever expe...   more

Monday Review: Taking Woodstock


Monday Review: Inglorious Basterds and Post Grad

(Ok, I lied. There's no Inglorious Basterds review. All of the press screenings were at times I couldn't make so you'll have to wait until Monday by which time you'll probably have already seen i...   more

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: District 9 and Ponyo


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: (500) Days of Summer


Monday Review: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

p'Harry Potter' is a prince /ppIt just keeps getting better. For most movie series that grow beyond a trilogy the latter films start to wane, taking fans on a roller coaster of quality in each an...   more

Monday Review: Bruno

p After Borat came out, and was the funniest movie in years, the question was how long could the film's star, Sacha Baron Cohen, keep up his trademark comedy of tricking people into thinking h...   more

Monday Review: Bruno


Monday Review: Public Enemies

Sadly that headline is not a compliment, but it isn't an insult either, it's just a statement of fact. John Dillinger, the subject of Public Enemies, Michael Mann's latest film, is an America...   more

Monday Review: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

I believe that Michael Bay forgot a very simple fact when he made Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen: the cool thing about giant, transforming robots fighting each other is GIANT, TRANSFORMI...   more

Monday Review: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen


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

Monday Review: Star Trek

I wouldn't call myself a Trekkie, but like almost everyone who grew up in the 80s and 90s I have a certain affinity for science fiction series that were created before my time. Star Trek is of ...   more

Monday Review: State of Play
