In Theaters: Man of Steel (2013) 3.5 Stars

Saw Man of Steel earlier this week at Showcase Cinemas de Lux in Randolph.  Solid theater as always and it seems they have IMAX screens in all rooms regardless if the screening is actually in IMAX format.  The film itself is full of intense fighting scenes and epic moments, but the plot is too  far-fetched […]

In Theaters: The Internship (2013) 4 Stars

Another matinee showing yesterday but this time I went to Braintree AMC Theater and saw The Internship with Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson.  The price was relatively high for a mid-day screening at $8.75 per ticket, but is well worth it because of their new recliners, speakers, screens, and 4K projectors.  Also, their regular price […]

In Theaters: This Is the End (2013) 4 Stars

In Theaters: Now You See Me (2013) 3.5 Stars

Just Watched: Argo (2012) 4.5 Stars

Yes, I know what you all are thinking, “how can you just be seeing this now?! you’re a damn film studies minor!”  Listen, I saw the trailer before it came out and saw Ben Affleck with a beard and a 70’s haircut.  At that moment I was out and I didn’t want to turn back. […]

Game of Thrones: “The Rains of Castamere” (S02E09) 4.5 Stars

Last night’s episode of Game of Thrones was without a doubt the most shocking episode since Eddard Stark was beheaded last season.  George R.R. Martin’s writing style is very different than most authors; he does not conform to the usual approach about following one hero or heroine, their obstacles with evil, and eventual triumph with […]
