I was absolutely enthralled with 2006’s Paris, I Love You as it beautifully showcased the City of Love, Lights, Dreams, Art, et cetera while also giving us stories that made use of each precious minute allotted; and I had high hopes for the follow-up, New York, I Love You where we get to see the City That Never Sleeps. Unfortunately even though the directors try their best to showcase New York, the stories never quite hit the emotional levels (be it for comedy or drama) that I felt with Paris.

Spinning off a movie into a TV show is not an easy task. Sometimes it works (“MASH”, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), but many times they fail (“Fast Times at Ridgemont High”, “Ferris Bueller” among many others). But here’s the thing – when you opt to try and make a successful movie and turn it into a TV Series it’s best to do so at the height of its fame – and this case it would be 1999/2000.

I don’t even know where to begin with Triangle. The movie’s premise is completely different than what the flick turns out to be, which aggravated me right off the bat. You figure out shortly into the film that the killer is one of the group and then the movie turns out to be nothing of what it really should have been.

I went on opening day to see The Lovely Bones, hoping to see a film that was advertised as a mystery/thriller type of flick. Instead, what several others and myself witnessed was a giant mess of a film that was two-plus hours long that took forever to start, forever to end, and left us wondering what the heck was going on.

In Hollywood what was old is new as the remakes keep churning off the production line. 2009 saw plenty of remakes like Land of the Lost, The Last House on the Left, My Bloody Valentine and Taking of Pelham 123. The remakes range from utterly awful to mediocre. And now we can add Fame to that list.

Chalk this up to yet another disappointing film of many disappointments. Surrogates never had the air of originality as it looked like a lighter and even cheaper version of I, Robot meets Terminator, but I still thought it could’ve been one hell of an entertaining movie. Well, I was partially satisfied yet at the end was left wanting more.

Surrogates, his latest action/thriller flick, under-performed at the theaters and has caused me to wonder if his appeal as an actor is truly gone from audiences. I can say that after watching the movie I heard nothing good about that his appeal really is gone.

I’m going to come right out and say it: I actually jumped a few times while watching Pandorum. There are literally scares, upon scares, upon Dennis Quaid trying to act throughout the whole movie. Yes, that was a clever zinger I put in there, don’t hate on me. Let’s get onto the box-office bomb Pandorum, although in my opinion the film should have been more successful during its brief theatrical run.

I’ve never really been a fan of “The Office”, either the British or the American version. I just never really “got” the show and the advertisements never appealed to me. Everyone I know says how great the show is, but I just don’t have the free time to watch the show in whatever season it’s in at this current time. Ricky Gervais tries yet again to break into American audience’s hearts with his latest farce, The Invention of Lying. Sadly though, like his past films, the movie isn’t funny […]
