"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" Review

Disney has been riding the wave of success with their Pirates of the Caribbean movies.  Three very successful movies have come and gone that were closely tied together with a flowing plot that brought you from one movie into the next.  With adventure, comedy, and great effects, the movies made their mark in the box offices.  Of course it did not hurt that they all starred named actors like Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom.

Thor: Movie Review

The comic book superhero movie genre is a tricky genre to truly master for maximum audience entertainment. Though each summer for almost a decade, superhero movies have dominated the big screen. This year is certainly no different with at least four main superhero movies coming out between May and August.

Movie Review: Rio

Endangered birds, last of their kind, are brought together to mate and save their race.  Though there’s some people out to get the birds for the money they’ll bring in.  Can the birds get away from the threat and learn to love each other?  That’s what the movie Rio is about.

Movie Review: Insidious

There's nothing I love more than a good scary movie, with genuine scares rather than "jump scares." That type of movie seems to be a rare find these days, which is why I prefer the classics like The Exorcist, Rosemary’s Baby and other films of that era. Movies in this day and time would rather have you jumping out of your seats at that very moment than be truly scared and bring home the terrified feeling.

Movie Review: Source Code

Source Code is a story about a solider who wakes up in another man’s body with a mission to find a bomb and bomber on a train before it explodes and leads to another explosion in Chicago. Captain Colter Stevens has only 8 minutes to locate the bomb before his mind is sent back into his body, and to repeat those 8 minutes until his mission is complete. Through the use of quantum mechanics, the government has made this mind and time jump possible and has employed Captain Stevens as a counter terrorism agent.

Movie Review: Hop

Easter. One of those holidays that come around every year which millions of people take part in.  With a very religious history to it, it’s still has a light and kid friendly theme to the holiday itself.  Over the years, much like Christmas, the religious side to Easter is covered up a lot by the hype as all the stores sell Easter bunnies, peeps, and Easter egg coloring sets.  The one area where I never felt Easter touched that most other holidays have gotten down for children is movies.

Movie Review: Paul

Aliens, something people have thought about and declared to see for decades now.  There’s talk of strange sightings in the sky, people who swear they’ve been taken, those who’ve said they witness crashes and so much more.  So many alien stories.  Though a lot of them lead back to the idea that “Aliens are being held at Area 51”.  For TMNT fans, we’ve had this mentioned before as well. Readers of the Archie Ninja Turtle comics would remember that there was a full adventure based on this, and viewers of the 4Kids series would know that Season 4 brought Area 51 into the picture where Bishop was stationed.

Movie Review: Rango

A pet lizard lost on a road trip finds himself on an adventure that makes him the star of his own story. Though as this lizard does not truly know who he is himself, he goes with the flow till he’s shown just how much he’s lied to those who trusted him.  Can this lizard pull himself together and save the town of Dirt?

Movie Review: All Star Superman

All-Star Superman.... what can I say about it?

Slow and rushed, pretty much sums up how I felt about the movie.

Movie Review: Green Hornet

One thing that will never get old at the theater is movie makers bringing comic book heroes to life on the big screen.  It has been going on for many years now and will keep going for years to come.
