Movie Review: X-Men Origins: Wolverine When I read comic books in my youth, I always loved the “origin of” issues, which told me about he beginnings of my favorite super heroes. I was a big reader and collector of X-Men comics, of course, and have enjoyed the previous three movies to greater and lesser degrees. […]




JAMES BOND – QUANTUM OF SOLACE The latest James Bond movie opened this weekend in the US, beginning on Friday. It is already #1 in Europe, having opened there a week earlier, and a huge hit in the UK, where it opened two weeks ago. The first weekend in the UK was a record at […]




Movie Review: Mamma Mia!

MOVIE REVIEW: MAMMA MIA! Official disclaimer: I have seen the stage musical version of Mamma Mia! six times. My wife and I first saw it in London, and as we walked out at the end of the exciting encore, we both turned to each other and said “I could see that again.” Two days later […]

Mission: Impossible: III I was privileged to see a private sneak preview the third installment of the Mission Impossible franchise, and what is arguably the first blockbuster popcorn movie of the summer of 2006. Let me say from the onset that it starts with a bang and doesn’t let up. It’s non-stop action from beginning […]




Movie Review: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire I had the opportunity to catch a private pre-screening of this movie. What a treat! It opens in black and white with a dark and stormy night and the Warner Brothers logo. Then a snake slithers along the ground… and then the title. But soon afterwards […]
