Rated R for sci-fi violence including some intense images, and brief language Running time 124 minutes, Action/Sci-fi/Horror

To define what I just watched might take more than a single review. I don’t want to describe the movie with the impression that I’ve never seen anything like it before, but rather to process everything I’ve just watched and decide how much I loved and how much better other aspects could have been. One viewing might not be enough. That being said, Prometheus is one heck of a thing to watch, regardless of whether or not you’re a fan of the Alien series. We can all even further implore the recovery process to forget the last two Alien VS. Predator films. It seems the creators of Prometheus have already, thanfully for us. Continue reading

This Movie SUUUCKS: Master of Disguise

If you happen to be a regular visitor of this site (chances are slim) and you’ve noticed that lately, I’ve just come off as lazy, well, sorry. I’ve had what looks like early signs of a hernia and dang it, I’m doing what I can to correct it. Work with me here. A friend suggested that bashing a movie I hate would make me feel better and ya know what? I think he was right.

Does that make sense? Continue reading

Movie Review: Men in Black 3

Posted in Reviews! with tags , , , , , on 05/25/2012 by Taylor Holt

Stars: Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, Jemaine Clement, Emma Thompson

Rated PG-13 for sci-fi/action violence, and brief suggestive comment, Running time 103 mins, Adventure/Sci-fi/Comedy

Plays like: Ghostbuster II (1989), Galaxy Quest (1999)

If I had been told in 1997 that by 2012, a third Men in Black would be released that year, my ten-year old self probably would’ve thought something along the lines of “That’s forever away!” Now, in 2012, a decade after the sequel, here we are with the third one and I’m thinking, “Men in Black 3? Already?” I know several people thinking the same. Yet here we are, Will Smith still being all crazy and Tommy Lee Jones being all…not. I don’t know if anyone else particularly wanted another sequel but we’ve got it and if the question is, “Is it good?” The answer might be a divided one. Continue reading
