Daredevil (2003) – Review

3 Stars

Editor’s Note: This review is for Daredevil-The Director’s Cut, which runs for 133 minutes. Daredevil is like a distant-cousin to the beloved Spiderman and owes more than a bit to Batman. Cinematically the picture mixes in film noir, particularly in its very good opening act and then settles into the well-worn pattern of its heavily populated genre. This is the second icon from the Marvel universe currently roaming the streets of modern-day New York, though this interpretation envisions the city stained with a slimy green hue that The Matrix made so popular.

Fright Night (2011) – Review

1 1/2 Stars

A teenager living in the suburbs of Las Vegas becomes suspicious of his neighbor after a local woman goes missing. Before long Charlie (Anton Yelchin) realizes that the bachelor living next door is actually a vampire. Looking for help in repelling the appealing monster named Jerry (Colin Farrell), Charlie ventures to the Vegas strip in an effort to enlist world-famous illusionist and self-proclaimed vampire expert, Peter Vincent (David Tennant). In the meantime, Jerry’s mother and girlfriend are in danger of becoming eternal salves to Jerry, who has already murdered most of Charlie’s buddies.

Total Recall (2012) – Review

2 1/2 Stars

There is a central misconception regarding reboots, it is as if filmmakers are forced to acknowledge hallmarks of the original, while still attempting to expand and position themselves as the better entertainment. This trend continues with the shiny, new update of the Paul Verhoeven/Schwarzenegger sci-fi (semi) classic Total Recall. Director Len Wiseman practices an almost slavish devotion to the touchstones of that 1990 predecessor, after a while I was making a mental checklist of the similarities and differences. Maybe, it is impossible to appreciate this picture without having an affinity with the original? However I think those uninitiated, will find even less to like about this expensive retro fit.

Fright Night – When Vampires Were Scary

Fright Night Asks Us To Remember the 80′s (When Vampires Were Actually Scary)

There’s generally not a ton of overlap in subject material between Hollywood and the fashion world (definitely a good thing – otherwise, all clothing would’ve become digital in the early 2000s), but in recent times the two industries have shared a similar passion: revisiting the 1980s.

Chances are good you noticed the 80′s coming back last year, with remakes of A Nighmare on Elm Street and The Karate Kid – not to mention, an A-Team movie and the MacGyver-inspired parody, MacGruber – hitting theaters left and right. There are more 80s movie remakes on the way as well, including this week’s Fright Night.

Miami Vice (2006) – Review

4 Stars

Michael Mann’s most underrated film is a forgotten masterpiece that was unjustly overlooked at the time of it’s theatrical release. Fusing the general storyline of two seminal episodes from the 1984 T.V. series, Mann’s script is a densely plotted narc-o tale about two Miami detectives working to bring down warring factions of Colombian drug dealers and white supremacists gun runners. Agent Sonny Crockett; Colin Farrell in a role that made Don Johnson a household name, Continue reading
