Iron Man (2008) – 4.5/5

Iron Man (2008) NEXT: “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian” (2008) I really liked this movie. It might not stand up to a lot of tough criticism, but I’m not going to throw any its way. It’s a fun, action,…

Logan’s Run (1976) – 3/5

Logan’s Run (1976) NEXT: “Iron Man” (2008) The first half has the same type of production as “The Omega Man”, “The Andromeda Strain”, etc.: bad ’70′s sci-fi. But the second half kinda frees itself from that and gets more into…

I’m Not There. (2007) – 3/5

I’m Not There. (2007) NEXT: “Logan’s Run” (1976) This a fairly artistic and poetic movie which also makes it less accessible. I enjoyed it, but wasn’t too into it. Also, the varying realities of the storylines made it hard for…

Silent Running (1972) – 1/5

Silent Running (1972) NEXT: “I’m Not There” (2007) Man, not good. In the same vein of “Omega Man” and “The Andromeda Strain” this is just slow, poorly acted and suffers from the same production style. I might have given this…

The Kite Runner (2007) – 3/5

The Kite Runner (2007) NEXT: “Lars and the Real Girl” (2007) Slightly disturbing and hard to relate to at times, I felt this was a bit monotone. The child actors were really good in all ways. This movie was interesting…

The Mist (2007) – 3/5

The Mist (2007) NEXT: “The Little Bear Movie” (2001) Decent for a B movie so I hope that’s what they were going for. You have to look past some things in the usual vein: they wdn’t do that, why are…

Baby Mama (2008) – 3/5

Baby Mama (2008) NEXT: “The Mist” (2007) Pretty funny – good parts w/ a decent story setting it up. Fey and Poehler have a great sense of humor so just them doing whatever will be decently funny… probably. Later in…

The Last American Virgin (1982)

The Last American Virgin (1982) NEXT: “Baby Mama” (2008) This movie was recommended to me b/c it sets itself apart from what you’d expect… and it does. The premise is a somewhat shy (virgin) boy and his friends are trying…

Dan in Real Life (2007) – 4/5

Dan in Real Life (2007) NEXT: “The Last American Virgin” (1982) Good, sweet movie. The characters really make this movie. It’s something that while you’re watching it, you’re enjoying getting to know them despite whether anything is actually “happening” or…
