Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience

February 28th, 2009

Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience does not represent a “D” grade each for Nick, Joe and Kevin Jonas (I think I hate the fact that I am now familiar with these teen heartthrobs on a first name basis). To be fair the grade is probably closer to a B-. The 3D concert (which outnumbers the dimensions of their belief system by 2) filmed over two days last August In Anaheim is spliced betwee ...

Che

February 28th, 2009

Che Pt 1 and 2 is a labour of love for Benicio Del Toro who is his usual masterful self portraying the Argentinean revolutionary icon Ernesto “Che” Guevara. Unfortunately it’s also very laborious for audiences. It’s broken up into two films which may be screened with an intermission at twice the price or released in sequence. Either way it represents four and a half hours of time that moviego ...

Fired Up

February 22nd, 2009

Fired Up is the name of a cheerleading camp that annually overtakes the dorms of an Illinois University campus for 3 weeks of pompom perfecting. The program is called Fired up instead of just Cheerleader Camp because it’s not as funny when they’re chanting C-C as opposed to cheering F-U in unison. If this level of comedy tickles your funny bone then you’ll get along fine with this film. Here ...

Confessions of a Shopaholic

February 14th, 2009

Confessions of a Shopaholic is a screen adaptation loosely based on the best-selling novels on the topic by Sophie Kinsella. Amy Adams clone Isla Fisher is captivating as Rebecca Bloomwood, a New Yorker damaged as a child from being dressed by her mother (Joan Cusack) in sensible shoes as well as other dowdy but equally terminally durable apparel. At twenty five she subconsciously lashes out ...

Friday the 13th

February 14th, 2009


Friday the 13th scheduled its opening day on the fist Friday the 13th of 2009 which is a lucky coincidence – not so lucky or course for anyone paying to see this remake – but if it didn’t open on Friday the 13th then the title would have nothing to do with the actual film. Camp Crystal Lake is again the scene of the crime(s) where in 1980 (the year of the original movies carnage) young Jason ...

The International

February 14th, 2009

The International stars Clive Owen as Louis Salinger, a rumpled Interpol agent who reluctantly came to that organization from Scotland Yard. We meet him in liaison with the FBI and Eleanor Whitman (Naomi Watts) from the NYC District Attorney’s office. While in Germany closing in on a small arms money laundering scheme Salinger’s FBI partner comes to an untimely end which almost turns out to b ...

Cadillac Records

February 14th, 2009

Cadillac Records takes us back to Chicago in the’50’s and the genesis of Rock and Roll. Leonard Chess (Adrien Brody) was a colour blind nightclub owner with a passion for rhythm and blues. After he opened the legendary Chess records he would reward his label stable who achieved success with a new Cadillac – and what a stable: Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Willie Dixon, Little Walter, Chuck Berr ...

He's Just Not That Into You

February 6th, 2009


He's Just Not That Into You has one of the key elements that I’m not usually into – an all-star cast. So when I see Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, Scarlett Johansson, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Connelly, Justin Long, Kris Kristofferson, and even Kevin Connolly as part of this entourage I immediately wonder how bad is this going to be? The truth is not bad at all. As a mater of fact it’s great! ...

Push

February 6th, 2009

Push is a sci-fi story about individuals with paranormal powers trying to stay one step ahead of a shady agency that wants to use their powers for nefarious gain. Hey wait a minute, isn’t that the premise for TV’s Heroes? Well uh, yes it is. Anyway, here those with telekinetic powers are movers and watchers can see the future. There are even those who can scream so loud that they cause fatal ...
