    Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle

    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Full disclosure: I never smoked pot, and I never liked White Castle. I never traveled across the state of New Jersey to satisfy a severe case of the munchies. However, there are a lot of reasons why this film is so special to me.

    So pull down those trousers, grab the nose-hair scissors and let’s go trim our pubes.

    Dude, am I really high, or is this actually working?!

    I was born and raised in a town called Freehold, located…

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    “I can’t see you… but I know you’re there.”

    This movie surprised the hell out of me.

    Imagine knowing only these nuggets of information prior to viewing: Meg Ryan falls in love with an angel, played by Nicolas Cage. It’s a “Hollywoodized” remake of a German classic ("Wings of Desire"). And its director, Brad Silberling, had only one film under his belt: "Casper."

    There’s no way this film can be any good, right?

    Well, let’s just say that I love…

    Die Hard: With a Vengeance

    ★★★★★

    I will never, ever tire of rewatching this movie.

    Also, pretty shrewd marketing ploy for the movie to give you the water jug riddle, but not share the answer. The World Wide Web is loaded with Die Hard 3 Water Jug thinkpieces. 

    Oh, and you’re welcome.

    (1) Fill the five gallon jug. Three gallon jug is empty.
    (2) Empty three gallons from the five gallon jug into the three gallon jug.
    (3) There remains two gallons in the five gallon…

  • Requiem for a Dream

    Requiem for a Dream

    ★★★★★

    It doesn’t happen often. I’ll sit through a film in a movie theater that will make me forget about everything going on in my life. Not once will I check my watch or be distracted by audience members or take a bathroom trip.

    "Requiem for a Dream" took me in for 100 minutes, deep into its psyche, and spit me out very shaken and very disturbed.

    It’s a harrowing experience, an absorbing trip into four minds spiralling out of control.…

  • One Hundred and One Dalmatians

    One Hundred and One Dalmatians

    ★★★★

    Wow. 1961 and these guys nailed it. Look at the colors, the masterful hand-drawn animation, the emotions on the humans' faces. This is impeccable craftsmanship here.

    "101 Dalmations" is one of Disney's finest "old-school" animated films.
