Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Review

Matt’s Review:

When the film you’re going to watch is the 4th in a Trilogy you know there’s a strong chance of there being disappointment involved…

and yet, I was pleasantly surprised with how little I was disappoited, if that makes sense… :)

I’ll admit there were bits where the movie kinda seemed to lose it’s way, and my attention in the process, but it never seems to take long for the humor, and Johnny Depp, to pull you back in. Although I didn’t laugh as long or as hard as in previous outings…

Ian McShane as Blackbeard was pretty cool, he really has come a long way since hie “Lovejoy” days! His face and voice make him perfect for an “mostly” evil pirate kinda role.

X-Men: First Class Review

Matt’s Review:

I’m been a fan of the X-Men since I discovered the comics 25+ years ago, so I’m always excited to watch a new X-Men movie, even after the somewhat crap ending to the last one, although the more Wolverine did kinda make up for that.

This latest outing may not be the best, but it was good and certainly better than X-Men 3 (I forget the title of that one off hand). In some ways it’s kinda weird going back to an earlier point in the storyline, but they’ve actaully managed to not only make it work, but keep it true to the original story, or at least close enough.


Super 8 Movie Review

“Super 8″ opens nationwide Friday June 10.

Review by Lewis McNeely

MPAA Rating: PG-13  for intense sequences of sci-fi action and violence, language and some drug use.

When 2 of the most bankable names in Hollywood, Stephen Spielberg and J. J. Abrams, collaborate to bring entertainment to the big screen, the odds are it’s going to be a huge blockbuster. “Super 8,” with its excellent storyline, great cinematography and acting, coupled with fast paced chills and thrills, does not disappoint. This film will certainly be the biggest hit of this summer.
