The Lake House (2006)

If I could go back in time, I’d pick another movie to watch. “If I Could Travel Time, I’d Go Back and Pick Another Movie” The Lake House is a movie that was screaming for a review before the first line was even spoken. If there’s one thing that really bothers me, it’s when a […]

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End (2007)

Captain Jack Returns from the dead. “Yo-Ho!” After thrilling audiences with two incredible movies, the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise was on the verge of becoming the Star Wars of the new millennium.  Of course all the writers had to do was not make the third movie awful and Pirates would be guaranteed a spot […]

Spiderman 3 (2007)

Just because it’s Spiderman 3, doesn’t mean you need three villains. “3’s A Crowd” In a world where “comic book” movies had become a dime a dozen and we were treated to endless promotions for sure-fire flops like Nicholas Cage’s “Ghost Rider”, there used to be two franchises that fans of the graphic novel could […]

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)

A good theme-park-ride movie? “A Pirates Life for Me!” When I first heard that Disney had decided to turn it’s classic theme park ride, Pirates of the Caribbean into a feature film, I thought there was no way it would be tolerable, let alone good.  To me, it was just another example of a studio […]

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (2006)

The sequel to Disney’s pirate classic. “Never Trust a Pirate” The first Pirates of the Caribbean move surprised me with its high level of quality.  The second Pirates of the Caribbean movie simply floored me. The fact that Dead Man’s Chest managed to have the highest grossing opening weekend in movie history should come as […]

Just Like Heaven (2005)

Reese Witherspoon stars the the year’s most illogical chick flick. “Just Like Torture” Going into “Just Like Heaven” I thought I knew what I was in for.  It would be your typical Reese Witherspoon chick-flick, with the premise being that she would die, come back as a ghost, and then fall in love with the […]

Napoleon Dynamite (2004)

Dumbest. Movie. Ever. “Taking Stupidity to a Whole New Level” When I first decided to make a Napoleon Dynamite page for this site, I planned on making it a part of my eyebrow-raising movie reviews.  But after some thought, I realized that Napoleon Dynamite was also a perfect candidate for the Hall of Legends.  In […]

Cinderella Man (2005)

A man becomes a boxer to provide for his family during The Great Depression. “The Lord of the Ring” I usually will only take the time to review movies on this site if they’re notably good or laughably terrible.  Well I’m breaking the trend, because notably good doesn’t even begin to describe how incredible this […]

Crash (2004)

This tale of intertwined lives won the Academy Award for “Best Picture”. “Crash Into Me” As I lifted the display case off the shelf at Blockbuster, giant red flags started going up all over the place.  The list of cast members on the front cover was only impressive because of the volume of recognizable names.  […]

Red Eye (2005)

A horror movie so unintentionally funny, it’s scary! “DeROK Takes The Red Eye” To take a line from one of the TOP 5 Movies of all time – “Just when I thought you couldn’t get any dumber, you go and do something like this… and totally redeem yourself!” That basically sums up my experience with […]

Planet of the Apes (2001)

Special effects and a new storyline can’t mask the comedy of actors in ape suits. Needless to say, I was pumped when I heard that the classic flick, Planet of the Apes was going to be remade.  However, there was a bit of fear that came along with this excitement.  You see, there was major […]

Planet of the Apes (1968)

Ape costumes and insane laughter make this the ultimate classic sci-fi movie. Of all the movies made during the 1960’s, Planet of the Apes is probably the one that is the most watchable, with the James Bond flicks also in competition.  While it definitely dates itself a whole lot with it’s weird camera shots and […]
