By Jacob Mayforth Safe house, no one is safe, not even your wallet because if you have an ounce of sanity you will see this movie before it leaves the theater. Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds team up in this espionage thriller where a young CIA agent is tasked with looking after a fugitive in a safe […]

-Mike De At first glance, another Mission Impossible movie didn’t have the same appeal it once had, but Simon Pegg’s considerable role managed to completely change my attitude.  With only brief tie-ins to Mi: III, Ghost Protocol manages to form a surprisingly independent story arc; complete with new characters, gadgets, and stunning settings.

George Clooney’s fourth directorial venture closely follows the footsteps of an experienced junior campaign manager, Steven, through his ideological travails.  Steven, played by Ryan Gosling (The Notebook and […]

By Michael de Moura Unlike the last couple Shrek movies, Puss in Boots delivers consistent laughs.  New characters bring color to a series that, after its third and fourth reprisal, was so very bland. Dreamwork’s Puss in Boots acts as a prequel to Antonio Banderas’ role in Shrek 2 (and onward), showing the origins of […]

By Michael de Moura 50/50 baits movie-goers with the appeal of another lighthearted buddy comedy, co-starring Seth Rogen (The Green Hornet, Pineapple Express).  In part, the film which was loosely based around a true story, delivers a powerful message about the sorrows caused by cancer.  While still following through with its promises of crass humor.

By Jacob Mayforth Can I do a review about a three hour long baseball movie starring Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill in under 250 words? Yes I can. Moneyball is the story of Oakland A’s general manager, Billy Beane’s attempt to change the game of baseball by recruiting a team of ragtag players based off […]
