There are some trilogies that end perfect (The Return of the King), some that are awful (Matrix Revolution) and some that have their flaws but wrap everything up in a satisfying way without alienating fans (Return of the Jedi). That is where The Dark Knight Rises lands. While The Batman is a cool character with … Continue reading THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
MIB III is a fun yet completely unnecessary sequel that reunites Tommy Lee Jones, Will Smith, and lots of yucky aliens. But the best special effect of them all is Josh Brolin.

Some of those moments include a decapitated head, a … Continue reading THE DICTATOR

You have to see it to fully understand … Continue reading JEFF WHO LIVES AT HOME

Project X is billed as the ultimate party movie but feels more like the dry heaves one feels after such a party. Besides the "found footage" cliche that almost never works in movies, Project is a Frankenstein's monster of … Continue reading PROJECT X
