MOVIE REVIEW: THE CALL

By | March 19th, 2013|Horror, Movies, Thriller|0 Comments

Why IS Oscar winner Halle Berry in this hackneyed hunk of horror?  I know it's a slow time of year, when all the worst films are released-- some worse than others. I went hoping for the best and while not the worst (they could have had the gorgeous Ms. Berry running around in her underwear, [...]

MOVIE REVIEW: THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN-PART 2

By | November 25th, 2012|Action & Adventure, Drama, Fantasy, Horror, Movies, Thriller|0 Comments

If you're in touch with your inner adolescent girl--and I am-- you'll love THE TWILIGHT SAGA:BREAKING DAWN- PART 2. I know it's been savaged in The Globe by Wesley Morris-- and many other critics. But honestly, having Wes review this film is like sending Andre the Giant to a pajama party--it's just not his milieu. [...]

SUMMER MOVIES SO FAR…DARK SHADOWS

By | May 24th, 2012|Comedy, Horror, Movies|0 Comments

DARK SHADOWS started out fun and creepy and ended up tedious and dopey.  Johnny Depp's  "odd" character choices are beginning to wear on me.  I like my vampires smoldering and beautiful.

Send your teenagers.  I saw it Monday afternoon in a theater with mostly single older ladies and one mother/daughter pair who apparently had not read the books; they looked shell-shocked as the credits rolled. The film [...]

HORROR MOVIE: THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE

By | May 21st, 2010|Drama, Horror, Movies|0 Comments

***WARNING:Trailer is VERY disturbing!*** OK. I said I wanted to see it. It was the best picture winner at Screamfest 2009. It promised a "one of a kind experience...guaranteed to shock and divide" audiences, a "twisted biological horror film" by Dutch filmmaker Tom Six, involving a gruesome operation--and it is called THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE after [...]

MOVIE REVIEW: SHUTTER ISLAND

By | February 19th, 2010|Drama, Horror, Movies|1 Comment

It opens tomorrow, but we saw it tonight: SHUTTER ISLAND will make you shudder. And think. And keep you guessing. And maybe bore you a little bit too--somewhere 2/3rd of the way through I found my attention going slack, but mostly it's pretty engaging, and this was agreed upon by me, Marji, my daughter and [...]
