Buffalo B Reviews Christopher Nolan's "Inception" starring Leonardo DeCaprio [Jul. 20th, 2010|10:19 pm]
Movie Reviews for the people, by the people...

          You may notice, faithful readers, that the title of this article puts Christopher Nolan up front, as oppose to my crediting the director at the end of the headline of this particular review. That is because when you're watching a film written and directed by Nolan, you're in for something a little different, especially when it isn't part of the Batman franchise. He is an auteur, like a former Batman franchise director who was known for off beat and, let's face it, completely twisted on its ear paradigms in his films, Tim Burton. That being said, if this was in that franchise, I wouldn't put his name up front. No, while the directors are important to it, Batman is its own thing and is bigger than the sum of its parts, even if Nolan is singularly responsible for its resuscitation. When I think of Memento and Insomnia, Christopher Nolan's name is the first thing that comes to mind (that and the original Scandinavian Insomnia) and it is still the case in his new film, Inception.

 
          For those of you have missed the media blitz, Inception stars Leonardo DiCaprio (Catch Me If You Can, The Departed) as Cobb, an expert in the field of extraction, or the theft of information through ones dreams. He and partner Arthur (3rd Rock from the Sun's Joseph Gordon-Levitt) are among the best in the world. But when a job goes wrong, they are forced to take on the difficult task of Inception, or the creation of new thought, often considered the impossible-to-reach apex of the thought-theft game, making Robert Fisher Jr. (Nolan film alumnus Cillian Murphy [Batman Begins, Red Eye] make a business decision with his dying father's (Pete Postlethwaite) company.

The Last Airbender [Jul. 2nd, 2010|05:55 pm]

The Last Airbender- This is M. Night Shyamalan's representation of the first season of the Nickelodeon cartoon from 2005, Avatar: The Last Airbender. Trying to stuff a full season of a successful and well-loved cartoon into a couple of hours seems like a difficult task, but Shyamalan surprisingly did it. No, there's no plot twist in this movie, and although it doesn't perfectly follow the cartoon's progress through the first season, it touches on most important bases and stayed true to the fans.

Buffalo B Reviews "Jonah Hex" starring Josh Brolin, John Malkovich and Megan Fox (Dir Jimmy Hayward) [Jun. 28th, 2010|02:10 am]
Movie Reviews for the people, by the people...

          Welcome to the second decade of the twenty-first century in modern cinema. Original ideas unfortunately do not move to the forefront during blockbuster season. We sit here, waiting with baited breath for Twilight: Eclipse and other pieces, we get to consider remakes, sequels and the latest and greatest treasure trove of untapped movie ideas, comic books. We've seen a lot of the big guys take to the battlefield in Iron Man (and Iron Man 2), The Incredible Hulk, Batman Begins (and The Dark Knight) and hints towards Captain America, Thor and The Avengers. We've even seen some more niche but acclaimed pieces come to the screen in Sin City, The Watchmen and The 300.



         Jonah Hex is a fun movie that takes place in a vaguely alternate reality from our own in the United States just before the first Centennial is celebrated. The title character, Jonah Hex, we find out is a bounty hunter whose life was destroyed after he turned in his commanding officer in the CSA and killed his best friend rather than commit a war crime. But, after it turns out that said commander had faked his death and was trying to put together a super weapon to turn against the United States, he is conscripted to settle the score for once and for all.
          Jonah Hex review concludes here...
