Review: The Hills Have Eyes 2

Last night while my parents and I were watching TV, my dad accidentally clicked the button on the changer to order The Hills Have Eyes 2. I wanted to see this movie, but I had not yet seen the first one and neither had my parents. It was not that difficult to follow even though none of us had seen the first one, though, being a silly horror movie... The film opened up with a woman giving birth to a still-born child and a mutated man helping -- and I use that term loosely -- her deliver. Exactly ... Continue Reading

Review: Disturbia

As always, I will try my best to speak in general terms about the movie, but there might be some accidental spoilers, so please read with caution. On Friday night, Josh and I watched Disturbia. The concept seemed cool -- a potential serial killer living next-door to this kid, who was under house-arrest for three months and spying on his neighbors to pass the time -- but I was a little reluctant to continue watching the movie after the first ten minutes... and not because it was scary (it took ...

Review: No Reservations

On Wednesday, Josh and I went to The Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley to walk around and ended up going to the movies to see No Reservations.

After an accident which claimed the life of Kate's sister, Kate became the caretaker of her niece, Zoe, and discovered how clueless she ... Continue Reading

Review: The Perfume

The Perfume is the story about a guy who is blessed with the gift of extraordinary smell. He develops an obsession with capturing, essentially, the "scent" of a woman and acts that out in malicious ways -- kidnapping and murdering women, then hiding their bodies and clothes around town. It was an alright movie with a cool concept, but certain parts, such as the ending, were extremely laughable. Ridiculous, actually. After watching the movie, I would like to read the book to see if the story ... Continue Reading

Review: The Simpsons Movie

I just got back from seeing The Simpsons Movie with friends. A lot of people have been giving it some slack in reviews, but I thought it was awesome. An absolute riot. We laughed our asses off; we were probably the loudest ones in the theater! As one might imagine, the Simpsons get into a trouble -- a lot of trouble. The movie tells the story about Homer and his adopted pig, and some environmental hazards which threaten to destroy the entire town of Springfield. Familiar characters from the long-running ...
