I know what I am getting with Adam Sandler and I like him but this movie was an ensemble and I thought that Drew Barrymore and the younger actors in particular put in great performances. I found the movie touching in places, laugh out loud funny at times, particularly watching Terry Crews being plain silly. This isn't a classic by any means but I enjoyed it and I enjoyed the work that the actors put in.… Full Review »
This one's negatives do outweigh its positives, but its strengths are really stupendous. Where some things falter, the main consistencies hereThis one's negatives do outweigh its positives, but its strengths are really stupendous. Where some things falter, the main consistencies here would have to be the costume design, production design, and the cinematography. All add together to make this a visually striking and beautiful film. I may not have loved the film, but I really wanted to, if only for those elements being so strong. In addition, this one is very good at mood setting, as it feels dark, disturbing, and creepy throughout. However, this mood does get upset by one of the main negatives of this film; the acting. The acting from everyone is poor at best. I expected a lot better from Johnny Depp and Christina Ricci, but their performances felt entirely wooden and emotionless, even worse when they did put in emotion, it felt entirely over the top. The added in demonic elements were also entirely off-putting and came off as forced. Finally, the special effects lacked at times. A lot of the time, the special effects were extremely cool and well done (everything with the tree), but a lot of the time, they fell flat and just looked overly stylized and fake. As a whole, Sleepy Hollow rides on its visual splendor, but is nothing more than eye candy unfortunately.… Full Review »

Hugh Grant has virtually disappeared from movie screens, and his return goes direct to on demand. "The Rewrite" is a cute, nice semi-romanticHugh Grant has virtually disappeared from movie screens, and his return goes direct to on demand. "The Rewrite" is a cute, nice semi-romantic comedy - a film about a man who Hollywood has discarded, and the people he meets in "real" America who still dream of stardom. The cast is excellent, with J.K. Simmons, Marisa Tomei and Chris Elliott all delivering nice performances in a movie that is nice, but a good example of why so many films aren't getting a theatrical release any longer...… Full Review »
This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. This has to be one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Lets start with the plot, or lack of it. Dumbest idea ever. How could you build a train track in harsh environment like that if they couldn't even go out in it? Not only that but the train never stopped and went around the world? Land masses don't connect! There is a plot hole. Who could sit 18 years in one little cramped space such as they were in? Not only that everyone dies except 2 people at the end. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE movie.
Stupid critics the only reason why they liked it as I suppose this is supposed to be imitating life?? I guess if your a gay critic who jumps on board with everyone else or you live in a world where there is no hope, this movie is for you!… Full Review »
