Welcome to my website!
Have you ever wondered why some critics review films? They don't even seem to like movies that much from what they write. I LOVE movies, and think about them long after the last credits roll across the screen. My reviews are meant to inform, entertain and never have a spoiler.
Enjoy my reviews and please comment and come back frequently! Thanks for visiting!

The Day After the Awards

Mixed feelings on the results-I really didn't think Million Dollar Baby would win everything it did. It was a little movie with an important message, but nothing much when compared with the complexity of the other films in the Best Picture category.

And  Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind for best original screenplay? I have a phrase that describes works like that one: labored creativity. It's as if the writer said, "Let's see just how clever and wierd we can be, and try to make a point in the film while we go along." Charlie Kaufman should have won for Adaptation when he was nominated; it was vastly better than this mess.

Chris Rock? He was good. Sean Penn should just lighten up.
