I am a James Bond fan. Seriously. I have the James Bond edition of Monopoly. I had my Sean Connery imitation down before I was a teenager. I appreciated Connery, tolerated Moore, reveled in Lazenby, loved Dalton, and controlled my gag reflex with Brosnan…

I saw the preview for this movie once, and thought, “Oh, yeah!” I
looked at the cast, the style presented in the preview, and thought it was going to be fantastic. I wasn’t wrong, but my perceptions were a little bit off…

It’s not often that I choose to rebut the views of one of my fellow contributors here at MCFTR. Hell, it’s not often that I find time to write anything to begin with. However, I have to take issue with a recent review posted by our own Justin Patterson. Now, I realize that I’m quite a few months out of date, but at least this will get timed relatively close to the DVD release…

Life got overwhelming, lately. I was about to snap. Thankfully, that’s what friends are for. I had somehow managed to completely miss out on all of the internet hype for this movie. When Chris asked me if I wanted to see something called Snakes On a Plane, I had no idea what he was talking about. I just said, “Oh, hell yes!” Good call on my part….

First off, I have to apologize for the long absence. Like our humble host, real life had me sidetracked. I had at least six reviews that I wanted to do, but just didn’t have time. I’ve gone to the movies very seldom in the last six months. Luckily, I have a wife who keeps track of things and lets me know when one of the good movies is coming out. So, after a rough week at work, she and I took the boys to the opening weekend of X-Men: The Last Stand…

First let me take a moment to address what I believe to be the most damning criticism of this movie. A criticism that I’ve heard people mutter as they haughtily shook their heads. I’m here to tell you though that it is, indeed, possible for a cape to seemingly billow in space. -Now, everybody knows that there’s almost nothing but vacuum up in space. Not only would flags not be expected to wave, but no one can hear you scream either. However… if you’ve flown up high enough that it’s night on the ground below you but you have a line-of-sight angle to daylight beside you, it’s possible to be floating in a completely airy sky that only SEEMS like you’re in space…

If you’ve ever read any of my reviews you know that they are usually brief and to the point…just like this one is going to be. Vampires fighting werewolves is just plain cool regardless of the movie that it takes place in so the Underworld franchise gets points for that without trying…

You know how when you were a kid, and you used to sing “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” with your schoolmates, you added your own little remarks at the end of each verse…

My wife is gone this weekend, so it’s just me and the boys. What better to do than load up the new mommywagon and take them to see King Kong? I checked the listings and see that it’s not coming until Tuesday. Crud. The Chronicles of Narnia is showing, though…

Doom (2005)

Movies based on video games are notorious for being awful. I believe Noel even wrote an article detailing the badness, but like a fool I gave Doom a chance anyway. I knew I wasn’t about to see a good movie by any means, but I at least expected it to be entertaining…
