(500) Days of Summer (2009) - Movie Review

(500) DAYS OF SUMMER is so absolutely adorable that, as the ending credits were rolling, I had the overwhelming urge to wrap my arms around the movie and never let it go.  It was so precious and utterly enjoyable that I wish its fast 96 minutes had been 500.  I could never get enough of this delightful tale.  When the DVD comes out, I hope it's chock full of deleted scenes.  Although I usually never watch them on DVDs, I want to see every minute possible of this wonderful film.

It's hard to know where to begin in describing one of the best -- and quite possible the best -- film of the year.  From the very beginning you know the movie will be something special, as it opens with one of the funniest textual introductions I can remember.  After that, the frequent narrator carefully sets the stage for us, by explaining, "This is a story of boy meets girl, but you should know up front that it isn't a love story."

Playboy's bunny turns more alluring than playmates

BANGALORE (Reuters) – Playboy spent 56 years making sure that the world would know it by the sign of its bunny ears. Now that the company is up for sale, Playboy's iconic logo, not the magazine, might be what saves it. Playboy Enterprises Inc is in talks with at least one possible bidder for the Chicago-based company. Fashion house Iconix Brand Group may be more interested in the company's saucy symbol than the photo spreads of naked women that made the magazine famous in the first place. Iconix wants the bunny ears brand, but wants a partner from the publishing world to buy the magazine and...

Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day (2009) - Movie Review

Review Poster Image - FLiXER - 10/04/2014 - 10:24am
Round two for Troy Duffy. Taking place right after the first, they didn't even have time to spend the $26K the first movie grossed. Somebody, somewhere is hoping it'll make more this time, but with 65 theaters, I don't know. Michael Jackson is the big elephant man this weekend, but those 3400 theaters are gonna be less full than Sony has deluded themselves to believe. If you like your movies Irish, then welcome the brothers Connor (Sean Patrick Flannery) and Murphy (Norman Reedus) McManus, now actually in Ireland from their usual Boston digs. Hiding out does that to ya, but I won...
