DVD REVIEW: THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER

Let’s travel back to high school. I know, it’s not a place we really want to go back to. For me, I came from a hellacious elementary and middle school existence wherein I had no friends. I was bullied daily […]

FOREIGN FARE: HARAKIRI

On a Saturday afternoon, one usually doesn’t put in a 2+ hour black-and-white Japanese samurai drama from the early 60s… or most people don’t, anyway. But I have a feature to do here, and this will actually be my final […]

DVD REVIEW: SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS

I love In Bruges. It’s one of my favorite movies. And I knew this was a totally different type of film going into it (more straight-up comedy), but it was still one of my most anticipated films of last year. In […]

FOREIGN FARE: TAI CHI ZERO

The trailer for this was awesome. It was meta and goofy and just seemed to be having all sorts of fun. I was really excited to check this out. But was it worth hyping myself up for it? The film […]

DVD REVIEW: TAKEN 2

You know how many sequels fail because they try to outdo the originals and end up a total mess? Yeah… this one doesn’t have that problem. I mean, it would need to try and outdo the original first. The film […]

NICK’S TOP 10 MOVIE FRIENDSHIPS OF 2012

I won’t lie–I was kind of set aback when Justin did his Top 10 Bromances list and included pretty much half of mine in it. I tried to think of other ideas, but all the best ones were either already […]

FOREIGN FARE: RIKI-OH: THE STORY OF RICKY

I… don’t even know where to start. Imagine every Chuck Norris fact you’ve ever heard is true. Ricky would still mutilate Mr. Norris five times over and not get winded. The film follows Ricky (Siu-Wong Fan) as he’s sent to […]

DVD REVIEW: LOOPER

(Note: This is just my theatrical review with maybe a few alterations.) Going into Looper in the theater, I didn’t expect a whole lot. My expectations weren’t through the roof or anything. I was excited to see it much like everyone else. […]

FOREIGN FARE: RARE EXPORTS: A CHRISTMAS TALE

So I’d seen this on Instant Streaming for ages and wasn’t sure what to think of it. Then a few months ago, it was recommended to me. And as it’s the Christmas season now, I figured… why not? In the […]

DVD REVIEW: PREMIUM RUSH

I wanted to see this in theater, but I didn’t get the chance. It always reminded me a little bit of a cheesy, unremembered thriller called Cellular. Similar tone, look, and style, at least from the trailer. And since I kinda […]
