Movie Review by Matthew Schuchman- Two out of Five ‘Staches.

Based on a true story that was co-written by one of the main characters, “Puncture” showcases the directorial debut of TV producers, directors and brothers; Adam and Mark Kassen. Revolving around a serious issue in the health care industry, the story is an extremely important one that anyone and everyone should know about; too bad as a film the pieces just don’t fit that well.

The debut of writer/director Dan Rush, “Everything Must Go” is based on a short story by Raymond Carver called, “Why Don’t You Dance?” Starring Will Ferrell in another turn at a dramatic role, the film holds onto some of the dark Carver spirit, but doesn’t hold enough punch to really put it on the forefront of good movies.

When I think of movies about faith healers, two films jump straight to my mind. The under-appreciated Steve Martin dramedy, “Leap of Faith” and the mostly forgettable, “Touch.” While both had their points of drama, the definitely deal with the subject a little light heartily. “Sympathy For Delicious” (Mark Ruffalo’s directorial debut) takes a more solemn approach to the story line, while staying uplifting in nature.

It has come to the point where I feel I am saying the same things over and over again.

Movie Review by Matthew Schuchman- Two out of Five ‘Staches.

Too many movies are being billed as, “From the people who bought you (insert movie name).” While “Insidious” is produced by the same people who produced “Paranormal Activity” they had nothing to do with the writing or direction of this film. That task was handled by the writer and the director of “Saw; ” don’t let the ads fool you. The marketing teams behind the promotions want you to think the pairing of these minds will bring you the scariest film you have ever seen. Unfortunately it feels more like a mockery of a haunted house film, more than anything else. (more…)

A review of this movie could easily read, “everything you already expected”  and it would be amazingly accurate.  Too many movies can have that said about them, but if you have seen the trailer for “Just Go With It” and you see that statement, you can’t help but just agree. (more…)

Whether or not you like his movies, it is hard not to like Jason Statham.  While he is enjoyable to watch when playing more charismatic characters, he has the stoic killer with a conscience role nailed down pat.  However,  as much as I like Jason Statham, his attachment does not automatically make a good film.
