The Dark Knight Rises – Nolan’s Trilogy Complete

The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

Four years ago, Christopher Nolan gave us a cinematic masterpiece called The Dark Knight that was much more than just a comic book movie… it was a brilliant piece of film making.  Last week, he brought us the follow up… The Dark Knight Rises.  Would it live up to the hype?  Could it possibly be an appropriate sequel to such a critically acclaimed movie?  I went this week to find out. I can’t launch into any sort of discussion without … Continue reading

The Last Couple Of Flicks

The King Of Kong (2007)

It’s been a while since I’ve done any movie reviews.  Hell it’s been a while since I’ve done any posting at all, but that’s another story.  Since my last review, I’ve seen a couple of movies and I figured I’d put them in one nice little post.  Enjoy! The King Of Kong – A Fistful Of Quarters I actually saw this a while ago and just never got around to writing a post about it … Continue reading

Top Comic Movies

Comic Book Movies

It seems that Hollywood is all about the comic book movie these days.  Just this year alone we’ve been given Watchmen and X-Men Origins: Wolverine.  Unfortunately I haven’t had the opportunity to see either of these yet but I definitely will.  That said, here’s a list of my favorite comic book movies! The Crow (1994) – My favorite comic movie of all time.  So dark…  So creepy and it was relatively true to the book.  … Continue reading

Who Wants To Be A ‘Slumdog Millionaire’

Slumdog Millionaire (2008)

There are quite a few movies out there that get nominated for all kinds of awards that are complete crap.  This however, is not one of them.  Slumdog Millionaire has been nominated for 10 Oscars including Best Picture and it may very well be just that (we’ll leave out the fact that The Wrestler and The Dark Knight weren’t even nominated, but that’s another story).  Directed by Danny Boyle (28 Days Later, Trainspotting, A Life Less … Continue reading

‘Best Pictures’ That Just Aren’t – The 2000’s

The Oscar Statue

The most prestigious award that any movie can receive is the “Academy Award For Best Motion Picture” — The Oscar.  Once a movie has this distinction it goes down in history as the “best” movie of that year.  The red carpet at the Oscars is a huge evening every year where all the stars turn out for the event.  The Academy goes through some sort of review process and determines which picture is truly “the … Continue reading

Chewie’s Review of ‘The Dark Knight’

The Dark Knight

Wow.  Just wow.  Pip had been on my ass for quite a while to see The Dark Knight and I have to say that for the first time in a long time a movie finally lived up to the expectations that I had for it.  I went to see this late one Monday evening.  I stuck around the house long enough to put G down for the night so Amanda would be stuck with both of … Continue reading

A Movie That Did Not Disappoint – ‘Vantage Point’

Vantage Point

When I first saw this flick back in February of 08 I said that it very well may end up being the “best movie of the year” in my opinion.  Well it didn’t quite get there (as The Dark Knight definitely stole that show) but it was DAMN close in the end. This was an absolutely incredible movie!  A great way of telling the story with some great actors turning in outstanding performances.  While this … Continue reading
