Movie Review: Saw 3D
It's the same old Saw torture trap formula, this time with a bit more cohesive plot and 3D gloss.

Detroit Chic Rating: ** out of *****
Saw 3D manages a bit of surprising edginess, wit, and plot. That said weak acting, the seemingly incomprehensible stupidity at times of characters, melodrama, and lack of originality drags this movie from a few stars to a couple. There’s no new ground tread here, just a journey down a well-beaten path by a veteran guide. At the end of the day, for Halloween movies, you could do a lot worse than Saw 3D.

Movie Review: Awake
awake_cover

Well, there goes 84 minutes of my life that I can never get back, I thought. At least it was only 84 minutes. Medical “thriller” “Awake” was a stark disappointment. The idea behind it was intriguing, that of a man (Christensen) experiencing what is known as Anesthesia Awareness during a heart transplant operation.

Film Review: Persepolis

    Persepolis is a great accomplishment in filmmaking that truly showcases the power of animation. What could have been a serious drama about growing up in war-torn Iran, if portrayed in real action, instead becomes a delightful and comedic coming-of-age story told through the eyes of an exuberant animated character name Marjane. This film is nominated for an Academy Award [...]

Book Review: The Road By Cormac McCarthy

{moshits} Views It has been well over a year since I first encountered Cormac McCarthy’s novel the Road.  I was aware of it for quite a while, due to the fact that it was in Oprah’s book club, and any book in that category sells like crazy at my work.…
