TBT: Munich (2005)

And finally we come to the closing ceremonies of the Olympic theme TBT this February. Thank you all for joining in on the fun, and I hope you have enjoyed the spirit of competitive action for the last couple of weeks. Which TBT was your favorite event? Your least? Any surprises?

Pompeii

Release: Friday, February 21, 2014 [Theater] No warning. No escape. No plot. No problem. . . . . .at least, to an extent. The thing about disaster films is that not a great deal is expected out of them, so it’s a little difficult to believe anyone who says they left the theater having seenContinue reading “Pompeii”

RoboCop

Release: Wednesday, February 12, 2014 [Theater] It takes guts to be RoboCop. Almost quite literally, nothing more and nothing less. Swedish hunk Joel Kinnaman assumes the iconic role of Detroit police officer Alex Murphy in José Padilha’s controversial decision to ignore the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” mentality, as it were. Kinnaman (The GirlContinue reading “RoboCop”

TBT: Blades of Glory (2007)

And I guess we are going to switch tones here quickly, by choosing a comedy vehicle for Mr. Will Ferrell for this Thursday. A comedy that has blades. Because that is really the only thing I can say about it that’s mostly positive and truthful; or I could lie and say something really cheesy, like.Continue reading “TBT: Blades of Glory (2007)”

The Lego Movie

Release: Friday, February 7, 2014 [Theater] The 7-year-old in me nearly wet his bedsheets in anticipation of the first ever full-length feature film involving his favorite toys from childhood.
