Billy Madison (Movie Review)

One of Adam Sandler’s best movies, Billy Madison is the absolutely hilarious film that sparked Sandler’s long reign as a romantic comedy box office draw. Exhibiting a sharp wit, combined with a touch of sensitivity for the fairer sex, the former Saturday Night Live standout successfully distances himself from the lewd and crude comedy path […]

Room (2015) Review

What do Josef Fritzl, Ariel Castro, and Old Nick have in common? It is the fact that they all kidnapped young women, placed them in a room, imprisoned them there for a number of years, raped and starved them, but were eventually caught and convicted to life imprisonment. The only difference is that Fritzl and […]

Movie Review – Ladrones a Domicilio

Last night we went and saw the new Angel Muniz (Estudio Quitasueno) flick, “Ladrones a Domicilio”. It was another quite impressive Dominican movie, this one more adventurous than previous efforts such as “Macho de Mujer”, “Sanky Panky” and others…I would liken it to a “Lock, stock, 2 smoking barrels” type deal, just with some Dominican […]

I didn’t watch the first “Unbroken” movie because I am sensitive to violence on-screen. I did watch the second one because I knew the focus of it. I just closed my eyes when I thought there might be clips of violence from his previous tormentor. When Louis came home, he married and his wife had […]

The Adventures of Ford Fairlane – Movie Review

I watched The Adventures of Ford Fairlane again recently and had to write this review. Loved this film the first time I saw it, and still love it.

‘Year One’ Movie Review

Let’s face it; a Jack Black film is hardly going to be unpredictable. One can imagine the pitch: loveable overweight loser (Black) falls for unobtainable girl, but (and here’s the twist boys and girls) how about this time we make him a caveman (how apt) who, with his best friend, goes on a quest that […]

Advantages of Writing Movie Reviews

Television commercials on new releases are enough to entice millions of movie lovers who run off to the movie theatres to watch those movies. These movie commercials are created to hoodwink the audience. A commercial tends to show that a movie is simply amazing, whereas when a movie buff actually sees it, he finds it […]
