Drab, serious 'After Earth' falls short
Updated: June 02, 2013 - 12:34 pm

Most of the ads for “After Earth” have neglected to mention that M. Night Shyamalan co-wrote and directed the film. Movie studios finally seem to be realizing that having Shyamalan’s name plastered above the title will no longer sell tickets.

Fast & Furious 6 – Six one way, half-dozen the other
Updated: May 28, 2013 - 3:18 pm

The latest addition to the Fast & Furious franchise is just like the tie rods on a ‘72 Buick … no, not really. I don’t pretend to know or care anything about cars unless they have a flux capacitor attached and I couldn’t tell a ‘69 Dodge Charger from a Ford Escort, so I come at the Fast & Furious 6 with an admitted disadvantage. I still had fun watching this film though, but probably not for the same reasons as most of its hardcore fans.

The Hangover Part III – The return of the red-eye
Updated: May 29, 2013 - 10:05 am

While The Hangover Part III may seem like a retread of very familiar ground, this “final” film in the Hangover trilogy completely abandons the trademark formula that typically sets Phil, Stu and Alan up to figure out what the heck happened the night before. Instead they are still recovering from the debauchery that occurred in the first film from 2009. Nevertheless, this is still a very funny movie.

Abrams has made the best ‘Star Trek’ movie
Updated: May 22, 2013 - 11:35 am

On paper, J.J. Abrams’ 2009 “Star Trek” is one of those movies that should have crashed and burned. A reboot of a beloved franchise with younger, lesser-known actors stepping into the shoes of an iconic cast of characters. The fact that Abrams went on record stating that he was never a huge “Star Trek” fan didn’t bode well either. Against all odds, though, Abrams not only produced a great “Star Trek” picture, but quite possibly the best “Star Trek” ever made. That’s right, even better than “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.”
