Inglourious Basterds (2009) – Movie Review

“Inglourious Basterds” has been a personal favorite movie of mine since my parents finally decided I was old enough to watch a rated R film when I got to high school. Please do not judge me for the fact that I was a sheltered child, and instead, judge yourselves because your parents clearly do notContinue reading “Inglourious Basterds (2009) – Movie Review”

American Psycho (2000) – Movie Review

A close personal friend of mine (No, it’s not Tom Skerritt) recently tweeted out that “We will never beat the 80s as a decade. I am convinced of it”. If anything portrayed in “American Psycho” is close to accurate, then I would say that tweet was a gross understatement. I am not a go-go commie-punchingContinue reading “American Psycho (2000) – Movie Review”

The Prestige (2006) – Movie Review

As a devout Christopher Nolan fanboy, one of the most difficult decisions I have ever made in my meaningless life was choosing which Nolan epic I would review first. If you have read any of my first two Top 10 Lists, you’ll know I have a particular affinity for “The Dark Knight”, however “The Prestige”Continue reading “The Prestige (2006) – Movie Review”

Shutter Island (2010) – Movie Review

For my first official review, I wanted to do a film that most people enjoy but often forget about until it’s brought up and then you go “Oh yeah! I loved that film!”. “Shutter Island” perhaps most perfectly encapsulates that very feeling. Director Martin Scorsese has built a reputation over many decades of work asContinue reading “Shutter Island (2010) – Movie Review”
