Well, that it’s for another year. The Oscars® are done – and the show was only ten minutes long! [That’s not a record – I’m certain it came in on time once, a few decades back…] For the record, James Franco and Anne Hathaway should probably not be asked back to co-host. Franco was surprisingly […]

The Fighter – A Story We’ve Seen Before, Right? Not Quite!
The story of welterweight champion Irish Mickey Ward may end with The Big Fight, but it doesn’t quite take the expected path to get there.
The Fighter is one of the year’s Best! Michelle’s Review!!
It’s been a long tough year at the box office, lots of mediocre movies, nothing that stands out until this weekend when we get two completely different films Tron and The Fighter. Both stand out for different reasons, I’ll tackle Tron: Legacy in a different review. When I walked into the screening of The Fighter, […]
MOVIE REVIEW: Michelle Weighs in on Terminator Salvation!
How is it possible McG continues to get these huge directorial movie projects? I’ll tell you – he is capable of making the trains run on time, but not much else. He has no vision, discernible style, wit or knows how to get much out of his actors. Whenever I watch one of his films, […]
MOVIE REVIEW: Terminator 4 – Salvation? Nope!

TRAILER PARK: Five Hot Trailers to discuss this week. Week of 5.17.09
Before I start this, let me just say Movie Studios attitudes towards the Internet is just dumb. I’m getting all of these clips from YouTube but the morons ban embedding the clips, even though right below the official trailer there’s always 20 other copies of it. How dumb is that? Here are 5 hot movie […]
MOVIE REVIEW: The Dark Knight is as Brilliant as Everyone Says. Michelle’s Late Review
In a conversation with Sheldon a few days ago he said he was having trouble writing a review of The Dark Knight because he thought he was going to descend into the depths of hyperbole to the 10th degree. I told him if he thought the movie was that good then go for it. […]
