Movie Review: Miami Vice 
Sunday, July 30, 2006, 06:03 PM - Review
Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha you go do? Imagine a slow 2 hour version of Cops, with sex scenes and you got the movie Miami Vice. Cool action sequences (especially the realistic shooting melee at the end), but pointless plot and lackluster acting made this movie a snooze.

Overall 2 of 5

TV Review: Hustle 
Monday, July 24, 2006, 10:35 AM - Review
Like NBC's cancelled Heist, Hustle has good acting, good story lines and nicely executed editing and directing. Some of the plot lines may be cliche, but the ending is always a surprise.

Overall: 4.5 of 5

Movie Review: A Scanner Darkly 
Wednesday, July 19, 2006, 08:17 PM - Review


This is science fiction? A Scanner Darkly reminded me of independent art house movies like Fargo, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, et. al. The animated look made the movie better, and the acting was decent (yes, Keanu Reeves acted decently), but you need to see this movie more than once to understand the storyline.

Overall: 3.5 of 5

Movie Review: Ultimate Avengers: The Movie 
Monday, July 17, 2006, 08:05 PM - Review


Ultimate Avengers: The Movie is a decent background story to the Ultimate comic book version of The Avengers. It doesn't have the animation of Batman: The Animated Series or Superman, but it beats He-Man or ThunderCats, and equals G.I. Joe: The Movie. Voice-overs are decent, the storyline works and the action sequences are very good.

Overall: 2.5 of 5

Movie Review: Superman Returns 
Friday, July 14, 2006, 08:03 PM - Review


You already believe a man can fly ... and become human ... but you haven't seen him disappear.

Superman Returns shows all that and more. It's an amazing sequel to the first two Superman movies (yes, I know there are more than two movies, but the other 2 don't count), especially Brandon Routh who has an uncanny resemblance to Christopher Reeve, both in acting and voice.

As usual for this year's blockbuster movies, the special effects are amazing (you can't tell the cgi from the actual reality!), and unlike another movies this year, the plot and acting are pretty good, too.

Overall: 4.5 of 5
