Old(er) Movies

This section here is for movies that aren't so current.  I write these reviews to help refine my writing and because I cannot always spend every night wacthing movies for $11 a pop.  So, if you're looking to watch any old movies and need an opinion, this is your place.

A film that tackles a well-known dilemna with a wit and playfulness rarely found done so well.  I am talking about unrequited love and how much it sucks.  Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a romantic named Tom who just wants a little bit of love.  He thinks he finds it in Summer (Zooey Deschanel) but soon finds that things are a bit more complicated than he previously thought.  

If I was a teacher, I would show this film in detention.  I guarantee students would start straightening up or face the wrath of this "movie".  The film has a lot of great ideas but fails to implement any of them as well as ignoring characters for the sake of the film's overall concept.  There are easier ways to tell the plight of high school kids and the problems they face than creating time traveling mascots and enough nostalgia to make you wan to forget all about the 90s.

As unbelievable as the wolves is Neeson's performance in this survival flick that will keep you wondering just how it all might end.  A refreshing take on the genre, "The Grey" helps delve into movie stereotypes to give them a level of depth not often seen.

A remake of the 1985 original, teenager Charley Brewster (Yelchin) guesses that his new neighbor Jerry Dandrige (Farrell) is a vampire responsible for a string of recent deaths. When no one he knows believes him, he enlists Peter Vincent (Tennant), a self proclaimed vampire killer and Las Vegas magician, to help him take down Jerry.

"Tom Cruise may be in shape but his back isn't that strong.  Despite jaw-dropping visuals, the film just can't get past being extremely average.  Borrowing from other movies is flattering if you actually put it to good use but insulting when you use it, well, like this.  Go watch "Moon" instead."
