Quote Review: Rock of Ages (2012)

“This place is about to become a sea of sweat, ear-shattering music and puke.”

Here’s a film so shamelessly cheesy that it makes one of those gargantuan pizzas you find in a city like Orlando seem nutritious by comparison.  Never mind leave standards and plausibility at the door, this is the type of movie you enjoy after too many drinks on a Saturday night.  But if you need your 80’s music fix with some sort of a story attached, then step forward!

Quote Review: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)

“Rape, torture, fire, animals, religion. Am I missing anything?”

As engaging as it is cold and short of color, Fincher and company’s adaptation of the popular novel essentially sees him return to form a la Se7en. The film has no qualms about showing whatever it can and wants to, further playing to its strengths as an enthralling mystery/suspense story.  Between the masterful directing, sometimes mesmerizing cinematography, Trent Reznor’s simple yet intoxicating score and Rooney Mara’s spectacular performance and character portrayal, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo finds itself sitting comfortably among the best works this year, adding yet another solid work to Fincher’s already-impressive filmography.
