This website has been a great success so far. In just over a month, I have already passed 120 clicks and people are coming to the site everyday. Thank you for your part in that success, and I’ll continue to bring you reviews as frequently as I can. There are some good movies coming out in December that I can’t wait to see and write about.
In an effort to clarify my reviews, I’ve decided to incorporate a new star-scoring system to the reviews. The system is pretty simple. Movies are scored between 0-5 stars, with half stars also awarded. For example, Silver Linings Playbook received 5 stars out of 5, while The Master scored 3.5 stars out of 5. This system will be added to all my past and future posts and should further show you the reader how much I liked (or didn’t like) a movie.

The Silver Linings Playbook was a movie that wasn’t really on peoples radar at the start of the festival circuit. Everyone knew it was directed by David O. Russell and had an amazing cast, but that was about it. Then it won the TIFF People’s Choice Award and now it is a serious contender for the Oscars early next year. The film follows Pat, a man released from a mental ward after an incident with his ex-wife, as he tries to rebuild his life and relationships. The stellar cast includes Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro and the always amazing Jennifer Lawrence. Watch the trailer after the jump, then read my full review.
Bond is back and in a big way. Skyfall is the best James Bond movie ever and a movie no one should miss. Starring Daniel Craig in his third turn at the classic role, the film follows M as a dark secret from her past comes back to haunt her, forcing Bond to chase one of his most ruthless enemies ever. The film was directed by Sam Mendes and includes a cast with such names as Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Naomi Ropace and Judi Dench. Watch the trailer below and then read my review.
Disney Animation has another hit on their hands with Wreck-It-Ralph, a feel good story set in the world of video games. John C. Reilly stars as Ralph, a video game villain who is tired of being the bad guy of Fix-It-Felix Jr. Jack McBrayer, Sarah Silverman, Jane Lynch and Alan Tudyk star in this hilarious tribute to classic video games that will move audiences young and old.
