The Blair Witch Project (1999) Movie Review

Title: The Blair Witch Project Year: 1999 Genre: Horror/Mystery Play time: 1h 21m Director: Directors: Daniel Myrick, Eduardo Sanchez Starring: Heather Donahue, Michael Williams, Joshua Leonard Amateur writing, naïve acting, average directing but with a story that seems to have changed how horror was told – this movie is the formula that should’ve gone really wrong but actually ended up in a prett...[Read More]

Virus (1999) Movie Review

Title: Virus Year: 1999 Genre: Action/Horror/Thriller Play time: 1h 39min Director: John Bruno Starring: Jamie Lee Curtis, Donald Sutherland, William Baldwin Virus is precisely the kind of movie that Scream spoofed.

Holy Man (1998) Movie Review

Title: Holy Man Year: 1998 Genre: Comedy/Drama Play time: 1h 54min Director: Stephen Herek Starring: Eddie Murphy, Jeff Goldblum, Kelly Preston Holy Man, the new Eddie Murphy comedy is a case of what I can now call Ronin syndrome.

Simon Birch (1998) Movie Review

Title: Simon Birch Year: 1998 Genre: Comedy/Drama/Family Play time: 1h 54min Director: Mark Steven Johnson Starring: Oliver Platt, Ashley Judd, Joseph Mazzello, Ian Michael Smit Simon Birch is a shameless tearjerker, a deviously manipulative little film that manages to be enjoyable.

The Butcher Boy (1997) Movie Review

Title: The Butcher Boy Year: 1997 Genre: Comedy/Drama Play time: 1h 50min Director: Neil Jordan Starring: Stephen Rea, Fiona Shaw, Eamonn Owens A movie doesn’t have to have an original idea to be good. It has to go about illustrating that idea in creative ways. The premise of The Butcher Boy has been done before. We’ve all heard of films about homicidal children — Macauley Culkin’s The Good Son, w...[Read More]
