Religulous is really an interesting and off-beat. See what Stephanie has to say about it here.
Bill Maher is on a mission. With his film Religulous, he wants proof of religion and not just that he has to have faith. With a thought provoking film, his film is reminiscent of Borat and any Michael Moore film. In other words, he manages to find humor but also makes his audience question their own beliefs.
The Robot really believes that most of us have missed an undiscovered gem of a film in Igor. Read his entire review here.
An Under-appreciated Classic Animation Full of Originality, Witt and Social Commentary
Igor is a very interested animated film. The film was not well received by the critics of its day. I find this extremely puzzling, as Igor is one of the most innovative and original animated films of the era. Igor touches on issues that are usually passed over by studios in favor of safer and more conservative topics… Igor stands out as an oddity as it addresses some very charged political issues in the fantasy world of Malaria, issues which were echoed in the real human world of the twenty-first century.
Rosie shares his thoughts on MILK, not the cow puss but the movie, READ THE REVIEW HERE.
Alright … I’ll admit it – I don’t get it. Seriously, I don’t get it. What the hell is everyone talking about? I just watched a movie nominated for EIGHT Oscars and the best thing I can say about it is that maybe if someone dosed me with a ground up hockey puck’s worth of ecstasy I might possibly feel generous enough to call it average.
Gerald loves, loves, loves Coraline. Read his entire review right here.
Coraline is a wondrous and exciting children’s tale shown in 3D. Wondrous is only to be expected from the combination of film director Harry Selick (of The Nightmare Before Christmas) with Neil Gaiman’s book by the same title.
The Robot doesn’t really hold much back with his assessment of You Don’t Mess With the Zohan. Read it here.
There is no doubt that You Don’t Mess with the Zohan gets worst as the film proceeds. The first half of the film, while a bolt-rattling experience, is far superior to the second half. By the end, the script has degenerated into such chaos that only a total fool would be entertained.
Gerald has a new review of Yonkers Joe with Chazz Palminteri that he thinks is pretty good. Read the entire review right here.
Yonkers Joe is an exciting and very sensitive dramedy. Director and writer Robert Celestino spins a tale of how a single father with a mentally challenged teenage son finds time to raise his son, play the horses, run rigged crap games, fix winning poker hands and pull off a Vegas scam. Although the film has quite a bit of action in the storyline, Yonkers Joe has an underlying compassionate theme that leaves the audience with a warm feeling.
Cherie really thought Goya’s Ghost was an interesting flim, read her entire review here.
Whoever woke up in the middle of the night and said, “I have it! I know who will play King Carlos IV-Randy Quaid!” That guy is a genius, a genius I tell you. This bit of casting is so bizarre, so wrong that somehow it makes the entire movie all the more, creepy, frightening and real.
