Were the Millers

August 7, 2013
"We're the Millers" is an adventure comedy of another breed. When a drug dealer has his money and marijuana stolen, he is forced to smuggle drugs from Mexico into the United States. As a disguise, to throw off the boarder agents, he hires a stripper, a homeless girl and a neighbor boy to become [...]

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

March 15, 2013
As a child I performed magic so I was excited to go to this film especially with the star power involved. Unfortunately, Jim Carrey isn't a magician, he is a performance artist (if you can call it that). This is a spoof of magicians in general and not a good one. The audience laughed or chuckled [...]

Arthur

April 8, 2011
It's not that this movie doesn't have a few good moments. It does. When charmer Arthur Bach (Russell Brand) dresses up as Batman and Robin along with his personal driver Bitterman (Luis Guzman) it is difficult not to laugh at the absurdity of it all. Bach has always been spoiled while having access [...]

The Ruins

April 4, 2008
"The Ruins" will take its place besides many cheesy horror flicks. Classic and double cheese films like "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" and "Night of the Living Dead" are in the same lame class as "The Ruins. Four young Americans find themselves going out to an obscure Mayan pyramid with some [...]

A History of Violence

September 23, 2005
This film should have been NC 17 in my opinion. It was so graphic in the sex and violence areas which really ruined the film for me. What could have been a somewhat interesting plot became secondary in scope and importance to the showing of soft pornographic sex scenes and gruesome violence. I [...]

Red Eye

August 19, 2005
This film is very well written, but it fails to cause any anxiety. I just wasn’t convinced that Lisa was ever in any real danger, but the movie is well produced. Also, Cillian Murphy delivers a good performance as the villain. Some of his facial expressions and antics would be intimidating to [...]

Just Friends

November 23, 2005
"Just Friends" had the potential to be an incredibly fun flick; unfortunately, because of the unnecessary language and sexual innuendo, it went far beyond acceptable limits for the Dove seal. There were moments we were laughing so hard it was difficult to gain composure, and not surprisingly, the [...]
