Warcraft (2016)

June 10, 2016
Watching "Warcraft" is like watching a video game come to life. However, along with the action and the ability to showcase amazing creatures, the film has a downside, in which some scenes look too much like the CGI images they are. For example, a few of the various characters ride strange creatures [...]

Big Trouble

April 5, 2002
Aside from a prayerful Hispanic housemaid who beats off the advances of her sleazy, adulterous boss and a hippie, “Jesus look-alike” who quotes Genesis, there are few redeeming elements in this film. Three different characters show no qualms about adultery. The dialogue is filled with sexually [...]

Get Over It

March 9, 2001
THE GOOD:...I enjoyed the concept of a pseudo teen musical combining a story, a few songs (“Love Can Keep Us Together”, “What Do You Get When You Fall in Love”, “Love Matters”) and a couple of dance numbers. Vitamin C and Sisqo are in the opening and closing musical numbers that are [...]
