• Horrible Bosses

    Horrible Bosses

    ★★★

    Nick, Dale and Kurt have personal grudges against their bosses. After a night of drunken revelry, they decide to hire a hitman and assassinate their bosses but things do not go as planned. The energy and hilarity steadily run out as the film barrels towards the expected conclusion. The humor suits the inner thought of the films premise. Once again a crude yet tasteful sense of humor is brought forth.

  • The Waterboy

    The Waterboy

    ★★★

    Bobby Boucher works as a water boy for a college football team. However, the new coach initiates him into the team after discovering his tackling skills. As a satire on the only true religion of the American South (football) The Waterboy is delightful. Supports a goofy storyline that everyone is sure to enjoy.

  • The Yards

    The Yards

    ★★½

    Leo Handler gets out of the prison and joins his family business, only to discover that his uncle Frank has turned it into a dangerous world of sabotage, corruption and murder. A fairly decent presentation of corruption at its highest forms and the devastating backlash it can have on ones reputation. All though I thought the movie was quite slow and failed to connect emotionally with the viewer it had its moments.

  • Hubie Halloween

    Hubie Halloween

    ★★★

    It's October 31st in Salem, Massachusetts, and a town's eccentric, devoted community volunteer and the good-natured object of his fellow citizen's derision and meanest pranks, finds himself in the midst of a real investigation, for a real murderer. More unexpectedly, it's generally bearable - a light, sweet and nostalgic comedy that is pleasantly devoid of high stakes. At times Sadler did a very poor job in his portrayal of a special person.

  • Jackie

    Jackie

    ★★½

    After the assassination of John F Kennedy, the President of the United States, his traumatized wife, Jacqueline, fights to cope with her grief and ensure her children's well-being. Jackie shines through its technical aspects and Portman's performance, but it fails to emotionally hook you.

  • The Interrogation of Michael Crowe

    The Interrogation of Michael Crowe

    ★★★½

    Is 14 year old Michael Crowe the killer of his younger sister? Or, in their brutal interrogation of their young suspect, are the police perpetrating a miscarriage of justice? A terrifying realization of what police can do to you when they suspect foul play. In some ways treatment can be unfair no matter what age you are. Was a steady film that had few flaws.

  • Bad Santa 2

    Bad Santa 2

    ★★★

    Fueled by cheap whiskey, greed and hatred, Willie Soke (Billy Bob Thornton) teams up with his angry little sidekick, Marcus, to knock off a Chicago charity on Christmas Eve. Along for the ride is chubby and cheery Thurman Merman, a 250-pound ray of sunshine who brings out Willie's sliver of humanity. Mommy issues arise when the pair are joined by Willie's horror story of a mother, Sunny Soke, who raises the bar for the gang's ambitions, while somehow lowering the…

  • We're the Millers

    We're the Millers

    ★★★½

    David, a drug dealer, is forced by his boss to smuggle drugs from Mexico. He hires a stripper, a petty thief and a teenage neighbor and forms a fake family to help him smuggle the drugs. Naturally, there are roadblocks galore -- but the breezy film stays one mile ahead in terms of plot and punch lines. Poses a unique yet unnatural family setting with people who cannot really relate to one another.

  • The Pursuit of Happyness

    The Pursuit of Happyness

    ★★★★

    Chris Gardner takes up an unpaid internship in a brokerage firm after he loses his life's earnings selling a product he invested in. His wife leaves him and he is left with the custody of his son. The Pursuit of Happyness reveals the soul-wasting nature of poverty and the lack of prospects for those condemned to economic oblivion. The picture pushes to be inspirational and profound. It does this to some effect.

  • Arkansas

    Arkansas

    ★★★

    Low-level criminals Kyle and Swin have never met the Arkansas drug kingpin who rules their lives, but a series of mistakes puts them on a deadly collision course straight to him. Most of all it is unexpectedly fun, drawing you through its world of not-very-good-at-this criminals, low-lifes and people who want little more than to just hang about with verve and panache. And that makes it a place worth visiting.

  • The Witch

    The Witch

    ★★½

    In the New England of the 17th century, a banished Puritan family sets up a farm by the edge of a huge, remote forest, where no other family lives. But sinister forces then start haunting them. The Witch is a totally messed up movie, in a good way. By the very nature of the story, the film begins at a simmer that slowly builds and builds until it's boiling over with insanity.

  • The Shallows

    The Shallows

    ★★★

    Still reeling from the loss of her mother, medical student Nancy Adams (Blake Lively) travels to a secluded beach for some much-needed solace. Despite the danger of surfing alone, Nancy decides to soak up the sun and hit the waves. Suddenly, a great white shark attacks, forcing her to swim to a giant rock for safety. Left injured and stranded 200 yards from shore, the frightened young woman must fight for her life as the deadly predator circles her in its feeding ground. (The Shallows) becomes a ultimate tale of survival as it entertains with just the right amount of suspense.
