Movie Review - The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Movie Review - The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
If you’re looking for something light-hearted and amusing, go see the Chipmunks or the Muppets. If an intense, violent, dramatic thriller is your cup of tea, be sure to catch the newest adaptation of Steig Larsson’s international best seller. But beware, this film is not for the faint of heart.

Movie Review- Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol with Tom Cruise

Movie Review- Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol with Tom Cruise
After witnessing the debacle at Soldier Field I quickly needed some mindless relief from the beating I had just seen. The latest installment in the “Mission Impossible” series was playing, and all I kept thinking was the title referred to the Bears playoff hopes. Actually as improbable as the movie was,  it certainly was more believable then anyone...

Movie Review - J. Edgar

Movie Review - J. Edgar
I know I’m going against the grain again with the following review but beauty (or lack there of) is in the eye of the beholder. Most of the critics have called “J.Edgar” a brilliant biopic of the man who led the FBI for nearly fifty years. Hoover was definitely an interesting and complex character, and... Read more »

Movie Review - Tower Heist

Movie Review - Tower Heist
As of Sunday there was good news, bad news, and ominous news concerning the just released “Tower Heist.” The good news is that it beat out the latest installment of the lame “Harold and Kumar” series.
