    I just got the Blu-ray of Detention, which Joseph Kahn (Torque, a bunch of music videos) apparently self-financed. A really fast-paced, meta teen slasher that really pulls the lid off in the last act. Had Dane Cook and Josh Hutcherson in it, and they were actually a real pleasant surprise...

    Clearly a 10/10 for Monty Python and The Holy Grail.

    IN A BETTER WORLD. Won Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars and Golden Globes; and it won the audience award for best film at the Rome Film Festival. Definitely my favorite film of the last few years, possibly the last decade. Absolutely breathtaking in all aspects!

    Tales From The Golden Age 10/10 The film received Un Certain Regard at Cannes, which is a big deal if you're not familiar. Really incredible stuff. It's a comedy that captures life during the Ceausescu regime in Romania. I have to say - with no prior knowledge of the country before watching, I...

    Winter in Wartime. Based on a novel by the same title, the film follows the story of a Dutch boy in wartime Europe who stumbles upon and decides to help a stranded British pilot. I thought it was a cool perspective on the WWII drama. The film won a bunch of awards at multiple festivals.

    Jumping The Broom 8/10 A breath of fresh air in a genre otherwise dominated by played-out Tyler Perry films. Acting and script alike make this film the gem that it is. It's a comedy, so you can assume happy ending, but there are a few great little twists in the plot that make the film much more...

    Burke and Hare 9/10 Big fan of Simon Pegg, so I was pretty amped to see this one. I heard about it back in 2010 when it received a UK theatrical release. From what I understand, it's getting a US theatrical release in the near future. Currently it's getting a pre-theatrical release on...

    Boyz N The Hood 10/10 An iconic film of the 90s and a personal favorite of mine. They just released it on Blu-ray. Special features on the disc are great. Highly recommended John Singleton commentary when watching.

    New Conan The Barbarian Adaptation

    Another Red Band clip released for Conan. Anyone who didn't catch it, see below: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yNisV1YQbXQ&feature=player_embedded I think it looks awesome personally. Every piece of content I've seen so far, I have liked better than the last. And this clip is definitely the...

    Cave of Forgotten Dreams 10/10 As an Art History buff, the Chauvet Cave in France is of particular interest to me. I recently saw Werner Herzog's documentary CAVE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS, which follows the cave's discovery. The world's oldest artwork - Pretty incredible stuff! Herzog happens to be...

    Beastly (8/10), which If you haven't seen is a modern day retelling of Beauty and The Beast. I thought they did an excellent job adapting the film from the Alex Flinn book (which I also enjoyed). Alex Pettyfer and Vanessa Hudgens have great chemistry on screen together. And the supporting roles...

    Of Gods and Men 8/10 A true story following the kidnapping and murder of 7 trappist monks during the 1996 Algerian Civil War. Film won the Grand Prix award at Cannes. It is beautifully shot and beautifully acted. The two leads, Michael Lonsdale and Lambert Wilson, are incredible in their roles...

    For any fans of the war film genre, Wolfgang Petersen's 1982 film DAS BOOT was just digitally remastered for Blu-ray. I now own both the original and the new director's cut. If you own, the original, I still recommend looking into it. If you own neither or haven't seen it, do yourself a favor...

    Barney's Version I'm convinced that Paul Giamatti's presence in any film automatically validates it. Argue with me all you want, but I have yet to see a film of his that I didn't enjoy. Barney's Version is a showcase of Paul Giamatti at his best. The story takes us through a roller coaster of...

    Just Go With It I'm a pretty big fan of Adam Sandler across the board. I'd say that JGWI is my fav film of his since 50 First Dates (which is tied with Happy Gilmore for my favorite). Sandler films tend to be very strong when it comes to supporting characters. Brooklyn Decker and Jennifer...

    Upcoming: "Terri"

    Saw this film when it screened at SXSW and really enjoyed its unique approach to the otherwise typical teen coming-of-age drama. And this is largely in part to the acting of the two leads, John C. Reilly and Jacob Wysocki. They bring an excellent blend of comedy and drama to the film. Their...

    Another Year 10/10 The more I watch Mike Leigh's films, the more I love his work. He is an absolute genius behind the camera. The first film I saw of his was Happy-Go-Lucky, another comedy, which I thought was brilliant. This film is a little more subtle in its brand of humor, but I thought...

    The Green Hornet - 9/10 Really enjoyed Green Hornet. I'm a big Seth Rogen fan, so I naturally enjoyed his performance. Christoph Waltz was also great; after watching him in Inglorious Basterds, I am convinced that he is the perfect villain. The one who really impressed me is Jay Chou, who plays...

    Film as a vehicle for philosophy - "The Ledge"

    I love me a little philosophical discussion, especially when it pertains to film. Just watched THE LEDGE with Charlie Hunnam (green street hooligans), Liv Tyler, Patrick Wilson (the watchmen), and Terrence Howard. Director Matthew Chapman has said that the film's Suspense/Thriller story, which I...

    SNIPER: RELOADED 8/10 As a big fan of the series, I was pumped about this one. I like how they tie them all together with the family connection. Thomas Beckett (Tom Berenger) isn't in this one, but is son is one of the main characters. I thought that was a cool spin in the series. Overall, it's...
