Movies Fantastic Mr. Fox Movie Shot

Finally got around to seeing Fantastic Mr. Fox. This is the stop-action movie adaptation of the popular book by Roald Dahl. It’s impossible to see the movie and not compare it with the more famous Wallace and Gromit as it shares the same style, look, and feel. I should also mention that, try as I […]

Movies 9 Movie Shot

I saw the movie 9 this week and the synergy with the date it was released (along with many new wondrous things from The Beatles) is, sadly, one of the best things to talk about with regard to the effort. The most notable positive of the movie is its amazing look. It’s an absolutely fantastic […]

Movies Inglourious Basterds Movie Shot

This weekend was another double-movie weekend in my sure-to-fail quest to get back into the swing of seeing nearly as many movies as I have the last two years. First up was Inglourious Basterds. It’s the latest movie from scatter-shot director Quentin Tarantino. I’ve enjoyed a few of his past efforts—most notably Kill Bill Vol. […]

Movies Up Movie Shot

This weekend found me catching Pixar‘s latest film, Up. I had a feeling that this might be something special. As of yesterday I couldn’t locate even a single negative review of the film. Critics of all types seemed to find magic in this film. We saw it in 3D but I am fairly certain that […]

Movies Star Trek Movie Shot

I wouldn’t call myself a Trekkie or a Trekker. However, I would call myself a fan of the Star Trek series. I know some terms that complete non-fans wouldn’t likely know (for example, that TOS stands for “The Original Series”) but I wouldn’t do very well on Star Trek trivia. Before I get to the […]

Movies Monsters vs. Aliens Movie Shot

Saw two films this week and nearly forgot to mention one I’d seen a couple of weeks ago. Yes, it’s been that busy around here. At this pace it’s going to be a challenge to see a lot of films at the theater. Anyway, a couple of weeks back I saw the Dreamworks animated movie […]

Movies Quantum of Solace Movie Shot

We saw the new James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace, on Friday. The last film, Casino Royale, re-invigorated the James Bond franchise and gave us a surprisingly strong Bond in Daniel Craig. This film is a complete mystery to me. In almost every area that Casino succeeded, this incarnation fails. The open credits are dull. […]

Movies Madagascar 2 Movie Shot

The family headed out to see Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa which is, of course, the sequel to 2005’s animated success Madagascar. The original was a surprisingly funny film with some fresh material that impressed many. It tells the story of four main characters—a lion, zebra, giraffe and hippo, that live in a zoo in New […]

Movies Hellboy II: The Golden Army Movie Shot

Writer/director Guillermo del Toro returns the world of his 2004 film, Hellboy. Hellboy II: The Golden Army is an action-packed comedic surprise that will keep most any viewer glued to their seat. It also comes on the heels of del Torro’s masterwork, 2006’s Pan’s Labyrinth. I’m most notably not a comic book fan and, as […]

Movies WALL-E Movie Shot

We saw the latest Pixar–Disney movie, WALL-E, this weekend. I caught it along with ten other family members and friends. This is a movie, as I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been waiting on for a long time. A friend of mine over at THQ—a game publisher that had the rights to create all the games based on […]

Movies Get Smart Movie Shot

We saw Get Smart this weekend. This is the film based on the 1960s cult classic TV comedy of the same name. I have to say that I agree with what a few reviewers said about it. I felt very much like the producers couldn’t make up their mind exactly what kind of movie they were […]
