Walrus’s Advocate: Batman and Robin

I purchased the Batman Anthology Blu-rays recently. Even though it included movies I'm not fond of, the deal was too good to pass up. I watched all four in the span of a few days and came to two surprising conclusions.First conclusion: Batman and Robin was the best thing that could happen to this franchise.*You [...]

(Not) Netflix Notes 4

In the past few weeks I have had the good fortune of being able to watch quite a number movies by middle age standards. It seems unlikely that I’ll get around to creating full reviews for the ones that warrant it (sorry, Scott Pilgrim fans), so here are some quick thoughts.   Mega Piranha Mega [...]

Finally, a review title that sounds like a 1970s blaxploitation character. Maybe this gimmick will work out after all. Last weekend my wife brought home Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes on DVD for evening viewing. I had no desire to see this film in the theater or on DVD, but Saturday nights are about watching DVDs [...]

Just got back from seeing The A-Team. Wow.I'm going to diverge from the usual story/presentation approach that Jeeg and I use when we review movies. For me, this movie is more than just that. A movie can have a strong story and presentation, yet completely betray what it is supposed to be. Especially when the [...]

District Walrus…or…Walrus 9…er…whatever

SPOILER-LADEN REVIEW BELOWStoryThis is one of those cases where I did myself a disservice waiting too long to see the movie. It got talked up too much and then wound up being Oscar-nominated. I wish I had gone into District 9 without any expectation. But that's my problem, not the movie's problem.What I liked about [...]

Krebz is an expert on many things "nerd" and has passed along the following review of the upcoming Justice League movie due out tomorrow. How has he seen it already?! He's seen it because he's "Krebz!" Justice [...]

I will be fairly brief with this review, since it’s one of the rare occasions that we discuss a movie that is still in theaters. Zombieland is a horror-comedy (emphasis on comedy) fun ride. If you’re a George Romero fan, enjoy Shaun of the Dead, or are looking forward to Left 4 Dead 2, then [...]
