Jackass 3D (2010)
In the wake of James Cameron's mega-blockbuster Avatar, all of the studios have been trying to get into the 3D game. Some are going out of their way to produce material that makes sense for the format. Others ran regular 2D movies through the post-conversion ringer, releasing product that sucked the momentum right out of the trend (here's mud in your eye, WB). As more and more movies come out in three dimensions, one thing has become clear: 3D works best when it's big, silly, and in your face. Sure, all these filmmakers could take ten years and spend millions of their own money working on a project designed to push 3D forward in new ways, but why bother when clearly the medium works best when it's showing T&A, horrible violence, or, in the case of Jackass 3D, pure nonsense.I remember when Jackass first ...

Red (2010)
We all hear stories of retirees getting restless. Having become so used to doing a specific job, they find it hard to sit still when they're not actively employed anymore. But what if your job consisted of killing people in the company of some of the most dangerous men and women in the world? What could retirement hold for the person who's been everywhere, seen everything, and killed it? Such is the question posed by director Robert Schwentke's Red.Red, based on the graphic novel by Warren Ellis, tells the story of Frank Moses (Bruce Willis), a retired CIA operative. His life, once rich with adventure, is now dreary and dull. The only pleasures he has are growing a lone avocado and speaking with Sarah (Mary-Louise Parker), his representative at the pension office. Sarah is in the exact opposite position as Frank, ...

 Piranha 3D (2010)
Before we get into this review, I have some questions for you. First, do you like nudity? I mean, in your face, eye-popping, Playboy playmate level nudity. Right, moving on. Do you like gore? I'm talking about outrageous, vicious, unexpected gore. Do you like Christopher Lloyd, Ving Rhames, Elisabeth Shue, and Richard Dreyfuss? Do you love a hilarious, massive, over the top spectacle? And if you could have all of these things, would you want it in 3D? If you answered yes to any of those questions, you owe it to yourself to see Piranha 3D.Piranha 3D steals its plot from Jaws: A lakeside town dependent on tourism gears up for a busy but fruitful Spring Break. Out of towners are already there en masse, causing trouble for the local sheriff, Julie (Elisabeth Shue). Her son, Jake (Steven R. McQueen, seriously, Steve McQueen), slaves ...

The Expendables (2010)
What happens when you take Sylvester Stallone, an action film legend whose career is back on the upswing, and put him in a movie with some action movie veterans and up and comers? I'll tell you what we should have gotten: A kick-ass movie that blew everyone away, highlighting actors that many have forgotten about years ago, while giving an opportunity for new actors to make their mark. What did we get instead? A poorly cut film that can hardly sustain the interest of the audience. Oh Stallone, where did you go wrong?The Expendables is the name of an elite mercenary group. Led by Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) and Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), they take jobs that no one else will. As the film opens, the team is in the midst of saving hostages from pirates. When one of their ...

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (2010)
"Scott Pilgrim is dating a high schooler!"So begins Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, the new film from Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and Spaced director Edgar Wright. It's also the first line of Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life, the first volume of the Scott Pilgrim comics by Bryan Lee O'Malley, on which the film is based. The comic book is an amalgamation of comedy, drama, sci-fi, and action run through the filter of video games and garage bands. The movie is an amalgamation of comedy, drama, sci-fi, and action run through the filter of video games and high profile bands. It's a crazy ride, and also the most fun you'll have at the movies this year.   Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) is a twenty-something guy living in Canada with his gay roommate Wallace Wells (Kieran Culkin). He's in a band, Sex Bob-omb, and is dating a high ...
