Movie Reviews

Honesty and expectation run hand in hand with my movie reviews. There are right and wrong ways to gauge films, and my way is to find out what the movie is trying to provide me with. Going into an action film needs to be met with guilty pleasure enjoyment. Dramas require a deeper train of thought. Comedies are medicine for the soul, especially when they are done right. My main idea is digging deeper. I want to know what this director is trying to tell me or if he/she simply wants me to relax and "get away". Movies are escape into a world only meant for imagination and mad creativity. We are all critics when it comes to film and our reactions/thoughts shape the future landscape of Hollywood and their productions. Honesty is the biggest requirement in movie critiques, but knowing what to expect is the secret ingredient. -Dan Buffa

Truth be told, The Scribbler fits neatly in that middle ground where it’s intriguing enough to sit through with no regrets, but it’s not necessarily a “must see” either. The only way to watch The Scribbler is to have fun with it.

The Drop is a great dose of September cinema and a fine entry to the fall season. If you have been waiting for something REAL to land in theaters that makes you think a little, doesn't show its hand too early and feels authentic, The Drop is your ride.

When they are done right, true stories can shine on film. Louder Than Words is a powerful tale that does the job.

It is extremely rare that the real life events inspiring a successful movie would unfold further into real life events worthy of a second (possibly successful) movie.  But it seems that somehow this happened in Clearwater, Florida.

When a team of explorers ventures into the catacombs that lie beneath the streets of Paris, they uncover the dark secret that lies within this city of the dead.

One man. One set of hands. One Movie. My thoughts on LOCKE.

If I Stay is definitely worth seeing if you’re a female and/or a teenager, or if you’re like me and enjoy a character-driven story.

This movie is an original dose of cinema that doesn't come along that often, so my best guess is soak it up while you can. Also, there's Eva Green.

Sly and the Gang are back with another dose of action hero bliss, and this Expendables is the best yet.

Turtles come to life along with their Rat master Splinter to try, and stop The Shredder from destroying the world with a deadly chemical.

The Hundred-Foot Journey is definitely worth ticket prices and maybe even a second viewing.

While others run to shelter the professionals run towards the vortex, testing how far a storm chaser will go for that once-in-a-lifetime shot.
