Mobsters Rating: If the job was to simulate the real feelings of impatience and frustration that come along with hesitant couples dancing around marital consecration, then The Five Year Engagement succeeds. If the Judd Apatow-produced comedy was trying for anything else—like a relatable, quick-witted romp with likable characters and a sweet ... Read More

Mobster's Rating: There’s much talk about “The Artist” being a silent, black and white film that happens to have been made in 2011. This is technically true, but to describe it as such is to suggest that it’s an artifact or an antique. It isn’t. Although it borrows the exact ... Read More

Love and Other Drugs is your typical romantic comedy, but it's elevated by a raunchier sense of humor and great casting...until it falls into the cliches of its genre.

For a movie that isn't really aimed for my demographic, Morning Glory is surprisingly funny and entertaining, with great performances by Harrison Ford and Rachel McAdams, and a cast that elevates the mediocre story into something worth checking out.

Red may be adapted from Warren Ellis and Cully Hammer’s energetic graphic novel, but what it really feels like is an extension of a scene in this past summer’s similar action entry, The Expendables. Even if you haven’t seen the film, you know the moment I mean—where Bruce meets Sly and Arnold in a church, offers them a job, and then jets off again.

I know it's a little late and it's about leave theaters, but if you want a romantic comedy you can bring your girl to and actually NOT want to stab yourself in the face, see Going the Distance. Ditto for those who want to see something that actually realistically portrays a long distance relationship...to a point.

I don't normally like doing a "take" on a review already posted here, but Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is a different beast all together and my excitement at what I have seen cannot be contained by mortal men.
