Movie Review: X-Men: First Class

I’m underwhelmed by X-Men: First Class. Critics, thus far, have been fairly positive on the movie, and I tried very hard to go into the movie with an open mind and not carry with me the cynicism developed from four preceding movies. But I came out of the movie incapable of mustering anything more [...]

Movie Review: Thor

You have to give Marvel Studios credit; they’re doing their damnedest to build a reality shared by their major heroes in order to make the coming Avengers movie feel believable. Problematic to such a venture, however, is the reality in which these heroes occupy. Marvel heroes, for the most part, [...]

Movie Review: Paul (Contains Spoilers!)

A lot of reviews for Paul are prefaced with the author’s love of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz so as to indicate their admiration and respect for Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, as well as their love for director Greg Mottola’s previous film Superbad. All of this is said so they can heap their [...]

In His Defense: Superman

Amongst my friends, family, and strangers who happen to hear me ranting on the street like a mad woman, it’s common knowledge that there’s no love lost between me and Superman. It’s not like I hate the guy or anything, but there’s never been enough of a draw to the character that’s inspired me to [...]

Rapunzel from Tangled

La Femme Critique: Is Rapunzel the Last Disney Princess?

First of all, congratulations are in order for Disney. Tangled marks the 50th animated feature for the company since the release of Snow White in 1937. Well done, Disney! Well done, indeed. And in celebration of this achievement, Disney has decided to stop producing fairy tale movies… Wait, what? [...]

Movie Review: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 1 (Beware of Spoilers!!)

I’ll confess, I’ve had a love/hate relationship with the Harry Potter films. I’m a big fan of the books and as any lover of literature knows, films very rarely do justice to their source material. From the beginning, the Potter films have attempted to stay true to the books, but have made [...]
