  • Joe Versus the Volcano

    Joe Versus the Volcano


    “… Only a few people are awake and live in a state of constant, total amazement.”

    I have what I like to call “swiss cheese” memory. Some things I remember, some things I don’t. Seeing "Joe Versus The Volcano" for the first time is what I consider a turning point in my young life. It was an event I remember vividly.

    It was Friday night and spring was in the air. I was 13 and my mom had dropped me…

  • Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle

    Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle


    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Full disclosure: I never smoked pot, and I never liked White Castle. I never traveled across the state of New Jersey to satisfy a severe case of the munchies. However, there are a lot of reasons why this film is so special to me.

    So pull down those trousers, grab the nose-hair scissors and let’s go trim our pubes.

    Dude, am I really high, or is this actually working?!

    I was born and raised in a town called Freehold, located…

  • In The Heights

    In The Heights


    The moment where Benny and Nina were dancing on the side of the building was the moment I gave this movie an “A.” The rest of it is terrific, but that’s when I fell in love. Not since La La Land have we seen such a perfect blend of dance, song and camera wizardry. 

    In the Heights is alive and is akin to cinematic euphoria. I’ve been dancing to its beat since I walked out of that movie theater.

  • His Girl Friday

    His Girl Friday


    Zippy, exhausting newspaper comedy gets a rom-com makeover that mostly works thanks to kinetic energy from Russell and Grant. The film loses steam in the last act, but you’ve already fallen for these two.

    One Hundred and One Dalmatians


    Wow. 1961 and these guys nailed it. Look at the colors, the masterful hand-drawn animation, the emotions on the humans' faces. This is impeccable craftsmanship here.

    "101 Dalmations" is one of Disney's finest "old-school" animated films.

  • Requiem for a Dream

    Requiem for a Dream


    It doesn’t happen often. I’ll sit through a film in a movie theater that will make me forget about everything going on in my life. Not once will I check my watch or be distracted by audience members or take a bathroom trip.

    "Requiem for a Dream" took me in for 100 minutes, deep into its psyche, and spit me out very shaken and very disturbed.

    It’s a harrowing experience, an absorbing trip into four minds spiralling out of control.…
