MovieWatch 2013

It’s time for my annual(ish) list of movies I want to catch this year. Strap in and let the trailers wash over you like pure adrenalin. (Not that I know what an adrenalin shower is like, ’cause I kind of think that would be a bit… icky. Though that’s not really the feeling I think you… Read More »

Review: Brave

Pixar has an amazing track record with its movies. The quality of animation is superb and their attention to story is a cut (or two) above most studios. Their worst “failures” are still better than most movies out there. I’d put Cars (both 1 and 2) at the bottom of their list, and I still… Read More »

7 movies my mother has to worry about (and a bunch more)

2012 has an impressive line-up of films. Time travel, mutation, gods, monsters, hobbits, technology, and sheer awesomeness all combine to create an almost inescapable desire to just set up an automatic withdrawal from my checking account to my local movie theater. Almost. As usual, but even more so this year, money is tight. Hard choices… Read More »

TIDBABSH 2: Part 2: Return of The Australian

If you thought he was gone, you weren’t paying attention. He’s back! He’s opinionated! He’s Australian! He’s spent more time thinking about pop culture than is probably healthy! And that last bit actually pays off in this, the second half of our conversation, as Lee Sargent and I concentrate on pop culture and movie/TV news… Read More »

Return to MidMo and other short subjects

My second guest shot on the Midnight Movie Club was posted this week, reviewing the film “Return To Me” (with a stellar cast led by David Duchovny and Minnie Driver – in the movie, not the podcast). If the stats are accurate, many of you missed this film when it came out in 2000 (though… Read More »

Movies 2010 – must see or must miss?

It looks like we’re headed into another year of big movies. I’m getting all fan-boy giddy just thinking about what’s coming. On the heels of Avatar, though, it seems like every big movie is being filmed in 3-D. While I’m okay with that, it means two things: feeling a little weird wearing those glasses, and… Read More »

Review: Wall-E

As may be appropriate for a movie with few spoken lines, this review should be pretty short. Amazing technical achievement. The visuals here are phenomenal. There were times that I forgot I was watching an animated film. Simply brilliant. The story was pretty simple, which isn’t a knock. Sometimes the simple stories are the best.… Read More »
