Another Earth and The Help

Reviewed by Ms. Critic After throwing back some Midol and curling up with the heating pad, I turned to the trusty tele to find some comfort. It was actually Mr. Critic who selected these movies from Netflix, probably from my prompts of wanting to see more “girl movies”. Let me confess one thing before I […]

So this year only two songs have been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song: “Man or Muppet” and “Real in Rio”. Take a listen. Real in Rio Man or Muppet First let me say, I am disappointed that there are only two songs. Either the Academy needs to change their rules or […]

A Single Man

Tags: , ,

As a story about one day in the life of one man, the movie, A Single Man, is able to capture all of the raw and viseral emotions connected with love and loss, and is an excellent exploration of the meaning of life. Colin Firth plays George Falconer, a man who struggles with the death of a loved one. Based on a novel by Christopher Isherwood, the […]

Dreamscape (1984)

I meant to post this right after the Inception post, but life got the better of me.  By happenstance (or was it fate?), I stumbled upon Dreamscape on Netflix Instant movies right before seeing Inception. Apparently, I missed the Dreamscape boat on the first go around back in 1984. But look at that cover! This looks […]

Inception (2010)

Reviewed by Mister Critic “You mustn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.” The above line from the movie Inception was one of my favorite, and it is apparent that Christopher Nolan took those words to heart when he wrote and directed Inception. Simply said, I loved this movie. A thoughtful plot with fun […]

Reviewed by Mister Critic So director Guy Richie brings us a new Sherlock Holmes. Not the lanky, nerdy Holmes from those boring books with words and stuff. No, a Holmes that is ripped, kicks butt and solves crimes. He is an expert fighter, throwing punches in slow-mo, breaking bones, blowing stuff up, and shootin’ thangs. Don’t worry, he’s still really […]

Baghead (2008)

Reviewed by Mister Critic I really did not know what to expect with this movie. So I went in not expecting too much, and I was pleasantly surprised. Baghead is an independent film of the comedy/horror genre, and I would say it leans more to the comedy side than horror.  I found out after watching the […]

“’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe; All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe.” Excerpt from “Jabberwocky” by Lewis Carroll When I was in about fifth or sixth grade, my teacher sent us home with the instruction to memorize a poem and the next day we […]

Avatar (2009)

Social pressure has made me ashamed to admit this, but for a long time, I was a Na’virgin. Yes, it is true. I was one of the last people in the known universe who had not yet seen that Avatar movie that is talked about so much on the Internets. If thirty years ago, you had told me that in the not-so-distant future there […]
