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

Super hero movies are nothing new and this year is packed full of them. With the pressure “The Dark Knight” put on the genre and the positive feedback from this years first big contender, ‘Thor,” a movie like “X-men: First Class” has a lot of competition. While being the first X-Men film to follow up the atrocity that is “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” “X-Men: First Class” doesn’t have to work too hard to immediately be considered a better movie. Luckily for the viewing audience, “X-Men: First Class” is a pretty decent movie in its own right. (more…)

The entire world has been affected by the economic collapse of 2008. Jon Gnarr of Rekjavik, capitol of Iceland, feels his city is the perfect example of both ends of the collapse.  One day everyone was riding the wave and the next, even the earth was showing the depths of its despair, spewing smoke into the skies. So Jon and his friends formed a new political party in hopes they could shine a light on what is wrong with their country’s politicians. Oh, did I mention that Jon is one of Iceland’s premiere comedians? (more…)

Remembering what I said in my review of “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World”; I thought before I saw the film that maybe Edgar Wright’s work would suffer a bit without his “Spaced,” “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz” cohorts Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.  As it turned out, I was extremely wrong. “Paul” on the other hand, sees Pegg and Frost writing the script with “Superbad” director Greg Motolla at the helm; no Edgar Wright. While “Paul” succeeds as an enjoyable film with a good handful of laughs (the best stuff all comes in the last 15 minutes of the movie), I would have to say, it would have been interesting to see how much better it might have been in Wright’s hands.

Magnolia pictures and their Magnet pictures subsidiary are on a roll.  The companies as a whole are picking to release top quality fair, overlooked by mainstream big studios, gives them a chance and a hardy amount of them are massive successes. This is the company that is bringing you the overtly comedic blood-fest “Hobo With A Shotgun,” the story of a tire that has come to life; “Rubber,” and the Sundance hit, “The Troll Hunter.” So when you see a medieval set film called “Black Death” on their docket that stars Sean Bean, you may expect a masochistic blood orgy filled with decapitation and iron maidens.  While “Black Death” does deliver a tiny bit of that for those wanting it, it is much more a drama about the evils of religion.

When a movie is prone to constant delays, it usually is not a good sign. Once known as “Kids In America,” “Take Me Home Tonight” is finally being released on March 4th after about 2 years worth of delays.  This film though, is proof that delays and  a tired overdone story, actually mean nothing when the final product delivers.

“Win Win” is definitely one of those makes you feel good movies where troubled characters find their way out of a rut that seems to be an expansive pit of quicksand.  It is a cute film and a funny film (mainly due to Bobby Cannavale), my only major issue with the film is that its message only works for the events contained within it; let me expand.

Warning: While I normally do my best not to divulge too much information about a film or present spoilers, to talk about “The Adjustment Bureau” I do have to go into a little more detail than usual at some points, but really I am not saying anything the movie doesn’t tell you itself in the first thirty minutes.
