The Switch (2010)

Most of us have been there: you have this chick or dude that you really love but he/she sticks you in the “friend zone”, then you get drunk and replace her donor’s sperm with your own thus setting off a series of events which in the real world would blow-up horribly with you end jail…

Practical Magic (1998)

Witches, witches and more witches… I bet you cannot guess what Practical Magic is about. If you guessed witches than I would say you are a witch, either that or very perceptive. If you are witty and humorous than I should consider that the icing on the cake… which incidentally would also be a worthy…

The Pursuit of Happyness (2006)

Will Smith has this knack at playing in movies both action-packed and hard-hitting. Sometimes he plays a warrior in the wasteland, other times an FBI agent hunting aliens, other times, however, he portrays a simple role: that of a father desperate to make ends meet caring as best he can for his five-year old son….

The X-Files: I Want to Believe (2008)

As a child the furthest I ever got to watching the X-Files was turning the channel, afraid of its creepy-ass theme song. Its haunting melody is one that even today is as chilly and wonderful as it was all those years ago. While today I can stand such a melody and all the abnormal macabre…

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)

It is an inescapable fact that death reaches us all sooner or later. Some die noble deaths bettering the world for others while others leave cheated by the forsaken.

King Kong (2006)

A savage roar reverberates throughout the jungles of Skull Island, a sound so fierce that all tremble before its might girth. The sound is one of intimidation and it belongs to a beast known as King Kong; a 25 foot tall ape which is king of all the ferocious beasts, man and animal alike. Though…

Fear (1998)

Life as an “upper-middle class” teenager free of emotional problems can only ever be portrayed as difficult in the sensationalized world of Americana. Case in point: Fear. Revolving around the tale of sixteen year old Nicole as she dates and then attempts to break-up with her psycho-path boyfriend, the movie is typical of the thriller…

The Last Starfighter (1984)

Pretend you are a kid in a trailer park, what is your biggest desire? Probably it has to do with getting out of the dingy little dust trap and finding bigger and better opportunities elsewhere in the world. But if you are Alex then it has to do with “getting out” all the way to…

Fried Green Tomaotoes (1991)

There are many tales of friendship floating among the film strata yet none reach as deep as Fried Green Tomatoes. Filled with emotion and portraying the sense of struggle progressive woman face, whether it is in the 1930s South or semi-contemporary America, the dedication displayed within these pioneers of racial and sexual equality is a…

Nim’s Island (2008)

If you are able to watch children’s movies and ignore all the logical inconsistences then you will enjoy Nim’s Island. Set against the backdrop of a gorgeous island in the South china Sea the movie follows the adventures of a little girl named Nim as she attempts to ward off invading tourists all while finding…

Unknown (2011)

Many a great tale has been told concerning accidents and amnesia. From video games to books these stories often are thrillers which leave us guessing for more; they keep us in the dark, intrigued, and never sure who and what is good and evil. This is exactly the kind of movie “Unknown” is. Starring Liam…
