When it rains, baseball players go to the locker rooms and put on their street clothes, but soccer players stay on the field, according to father/coach Bryan Bowen (Dermot Mulroney). So we get not one but two high-tension moments as […]

Severance

C
Lowest Recommended Age: High School
MPAA Rating: Rated R for strong bloody violence, language, drug content and some sexuality/nudity.
Movie Release Date: 2007

Severance is a quirky yet compellingly gory tale of a few great characters begrudgingly forced to spend a weekend together. And then they are hunted down, suffer grizzly deaths, and are, for the most part, never heard from again. Writer/director […]

Mr. Brooks

posted by jmiller

I have to give this film credit for embracing its craziness. This is one movie that proudly raises its freak flag high and lets it wave. But that does not mean it works. Mr. Brooks (Kevin Costner) is an upstanding […]

Every so often an unpretentious little charmer like “Surf’s Up” darts ahead of the pack of big, over-hyped, over-long, resistance-is-futile summer blockbusters lumbering into multiplexes. This one is as refreshing as an ice cream cone after a hot day. The […]

DVD Release Date: December 4, 2007

Even in a summer blockbuster, sometimes less is more. Especially when it comes to the story. They throw in so many plots, so many battles, so many tonal shifts, so many characters, and ultimately so many Captain Jack Sparrows that […]

Shrek the Third

MPAA Rating: Rated PG for some crude humor, suggestive content and swashbuckling action.
Movie Release Date: 2007

Did you ever wonder what happens to the villains while the hero and heroine are living happily ever after? We get to find out in this third chapter in the saga of Shrek. In the previous episode, Prince Charming failed […]

Minow rule: If Hector Elizondo barely makes an appearance in a Garry Marshall film, watch out. Or, I should say, don’t watch. Marshall wisely does his best to include the talented Elizondo in every one of his films. If the […]

DVD Release Date: 2007

Painfully overlong at under 90 minutes, “The Ex” (formerly known as “Fast Track”) is a clunky, lead-footed disaster, the stunning incompetence of its script and direction only exceeded by the shocking array of talented and successful performers who struggle in […]

Parents should know that this film deals with very disturbing themes, including the discovery of the dead body of a young woman who may have been raped. There are scenes of nudity and graphic wounds. Characters drink (sometimes to excess), […]

Maybe if it had been made in the 1940’s or 50’s in black and white, maybe if it starred Frank Sinatra and Lee Remick, maybe if we had never seen better films like “The Hustler,” maybe this script might have […]
