Management (2009)
When it comes to finding love in this big crazy world of ours, my aunt Tina says there’s an ass for every seat (known in more polite circles as the “lid for every pot” theory). Management, an indie romance starring Jennifer Aniston and Steve Zahn, explores whether this might be true, if not for all of us, then at least for two lost souls whose paths cross at a roadside motel in Kingman, Arizona.  Jennifer Aniston plays Sue Claussen, a sales representative for a corporate art company (really bad corporate art – the kind with flowers or dogs and horses you find in crappy hotels, airports and bank lobbies).  On a business trip, she checks into a cheap motel and catches the eye of the night manager, Mike (Zahn), who lives at the motel and is the son of the ...

Angels and Demons (2009)
Mediocrity returns.Author Dan Brown’s ascent to the top of the best-seller charts, and his subsequent entry into pop culture, with the now ubiquitous Da Vinci Code has utterly stupefied me. Brown’s tale of Biblical secrets was poorly written and riddled with inconsistencies and problems. Yet it captured the imagination of millions, and quickly spawned a secondary market of books seeking to offer the truth behind the “Da Vinci Code.” Perhaps it was no surprise that Ron Howard would have turned this thoroughly pedestrian book into a movie along with his writer, Akiva Goldsman (the scribe behind Batman and Robin, bat nipples and all). The pair are responsible for some of the most inane crowd-pleasers to pass through the multiplexes. Howard’s undemanding approach seemed just right for a piece of writing as silly as The Da Vinci Code, and despite poor ...

Rudo y Cursi
Before I dive in to what is mostly criticism, let me say that Diego Luna and Gabriel García Bernal are skilled, charismatic and have serious onscreen chemistry.   With any two other actors, this film may have been an unbearable mess, but these guys are so fun to watch it almost doesn’t matter what goes on around them.  I’m pretty sure I’d enjoy a movie in which they stood outside Subway trying to decide which five dollar foot-long subs to order.  Still, this flick was no Y Tu Mamá También, so on to the review:Two siblings, both blessed with natural talent in the same sport, work on a farm in the small town they grew up in.   When a morally questionable pro scout appears to offer them tickets to the big show, their rivalry is ignited both on and off the ...

Star Trek (2009)
I don't even know where to begin. Star Trek has been a part of my life for as long as I could remember. First catching repeat episodes of the original series on backwater TV stations, I initially thought the show was silly. And then came The Next Generation, and I got it. Going back, I discovered the feature films, both the good and the bad. But more importantly, I came to love the characters that populated the universe. Kirk, Spock, McCoy. Picard, Data, Riker, Worf and Uhura. These were people (and aliens) that I knew and loved. Their adventures may not always be great (I still find The Motion Picture to be insufferably slow), but they were always larger than life and memorable. Back in the late 80's and early 90's, Star Trek was riding high, and the possibilities ...

X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)
I’ve been an X-Men fan since I was in 2nd or 3rd grade. Unlike most super heroes, the X-Men weren’t lauded for their powers. Despite superhero teams like The Fantastic Four or the Avengers being accepted by the public, the X-Men were spit upon by society, due to being born as mutants. It was a sense of social awareness that made the title such a success with its readers, along, of course, with the cool powers we got to see on display month after month. I was a huge fan, reading the comics, watching the cartoon; I even had the trading cards and action figures. Like most everyone else, my favorite character on the team was Wolverine. Aside from having the coolest powers a young boy could ever want (who wouldn’t want claws and a healing factor?), Wolverine had the ...
