Twenty years ago yesterday, a 14 year old boy went on his first date with a girl. They went to see Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves starring Kevin Costner then they walked to the local mall and ate at Hardee's. Seven years later, that boy and girl would get married. And thirteen years after that, [...]

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 [...]

Walrus Holmes

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 [...]

Superman II: The Walrus Cut

As I've mentioned before, the 1978 Richard Donner-directed Superman film is my favorite comic book movie of all time. I'll be the first to admit that there are flaws in that film but nothing like the flaws in the subsequent sequels. It is often argued that Superman II is one of the greatest comic book [...]

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 [...]

I recently had the opportunity to watch Fanboys a movie that I thought was going to seem oddly out of place and time, but probably came at the right time.StoryThe year is 1998, six months before the release of "The Phantom Menace" and four nerds who were primarily into Star Wars have entered their early [...]
