Movies Surf's Up Movie Poster

A teenage penguin looking to break into the pro surfing circuit is the focus of a documentary in the shallow pools of Surf’s Up. This is the story of Cody Maverick (voiced by Shia LaBeouf), a young rockhopper penguin trying to become the next big surfing star of Antarctica. The event of the season is […]

Movies Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World's End Movie Poster

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End fared no better than the other duds I saw this weekend. In fact, I would say I enjoyed Shrek 3 more and if you just read that review that about says it all. The movie was three hours long and that was three hours too long. I found none […]

Movies Shrek The Third Movie Poster

I can’t even recall large swaths of Shrek the Third and I just saw it Friday night. It was totally forgettable. I don’t know that much could have been done about it as this story really was about the uniqueness of it all. Once that was gone, there really wasn’t any point. This one felt like […]

Movies Spider-Man 3 Movie Poster

Spider-Man 3 started off the bad luck of a bad, bad weekend of terrible third installments in major franchises. I enjoyed both previous movies but this one went terribly wrong early on. The entire middle section was a complete joke and the ending did little to undo the damage. The only bright spot I could […]

Movies Letters from Iwo Jima Movie Poster

The famed World War II battle is retold from the perspective of the Japanese soldiers who lived it in Letters from Iwo Jima. Just two months after releasing Flags of our Fathers director Clint Eastwood gives us the same island battle but seen through the eyes of the other side. The first film I found to be […]

Movies Casino Royale Movie Poster

A newly elevated British secret agent embarks on his first mission as 007 in Casino Royale. The latest film in the James Bond canon returns to its roots with a bang and, I must say, I was very impressed with the result. Daniel Craig does an excellent job. In fact, by the end of the movie I […]

Well, Fandango got back to me about an e-mail I sent regarding the Reservation Rewards scam that I managed to fall into. Turns out that my information was sent to this group by MovieTickets.com and not Fandango. They both use this same service. Of course the e-mail made it out like my issues were no […]

For those who may not know it, Fandango is a company that allows consumers to buy movie tickets online. I’m not exactly sure how many chains use Fandango but the huge AMC/Loews theater in my home town uses them and we’ve used their service fairly often. Some time ago Fandango partnered with another company and […]

Movies An Inconvenient Truth Movie Poster

The causes, expansion and impact of global warming are dissected in the documentary film An Inconvenient Truth. Former Vice President Al Gore takes us on a journey inside his most passionate cause with an in-depth examination of global climate change. The subject matter is presented in a fairly dry style that’s somewhat apropos given the […]

Movies Loews Theaters

My wife was busy with a work function tonight so I decided to make it a boys night out with my 10 year-old son. Friday marked the opening night of Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit. My son likes the characters and anything even remotely cartoon-like and I’ve found past snippets of this pair […]
