The Critical Movie Critics

I’m going to infuse some well needed class here!


Movie Review: The House Bunny (2008)

Playboy Bunny Shelly Darlingson (Anna Faris) lives a pampered life along with her fellow Bunnies at the Playboy Mansion. The day after her twenty-seventh birthday, her life crumbles when she receives a letter from Hugh Hefner telling her to vacate the Playboy Mansion immediately (apparently 27 is the auto-retirement age for Bunnies). Devastated, she is…

Movie Review: Man on Wire (2008)

French tight rope walker Philippe Petit is a renegade. In acts of defiance, he’s walked across culturally important structures all over the world. His rogue behavior captured the admiration of those who witnessed it, while damaging the relationships with those people he involved in his schemes. In 1974, he set his eyes on the ultimate…

Movie Review: Tropic Thunder (2008)

Movie Review: WALL-E (2008)

WALL-E is the latest in the line of stellar features from the powerhouse Pixar. It is a romantic story of a small, lonely garbage cleaning robot that finds his purpose is greater than simply gathering trash into piles. Beautiful, charming and with an important message interwoven, WALL-E is flawless. When the people of earth cover…

Movie Review: Hancock (2008)

Hancock is Los Angeles’ resident alcohol-fueled, low-flying sometimes hero. With all the exciting aspects of an action movie, sparkling comedy and a heartfelt plot, this is the most honest super hero movie I’ve ever seen. When not drunk, John Hancock (Will Smith) flies around Los Angeles, protecting innocent people from criminals and disaster. The rest…
