Raise your hand if you kind of have a big ol’ crush on Sam Rockwell! Me! Me! I do! Looking back over his filmography it was probably the underrated Matchstick Men where I first really saw him and it was definitely last year’s Choke that sent me over the edge to full-fleged crush status. He was even [...]
Hola, amigos. What up? I know it’s been a long time since I rapped at ya, but I got real busy re-reading all the Jim Anchower columns over at the Onion. Then I smoked a huge bowl and two weeks later, here we are with a much delayed review of Star Trek. I might catch [...]

Speed Racer is a little kid (Nicholas Elia, a child actor that really bears an uncanny resemblance to Emile Hirsch) who can’t concentrate on anything in school because all he can think about [...]
Iron Man? Two Words: Fucking Rad.
I Am Legend. Will Smith is ripped. Dogs are awesome. Chicks suck at surviving the apocalypse.
UPDATE: Remember how I was smitten with Carina Chocano like 2 weeks ago for her sort of neo-feminist Hollywood commentary in the LA Times? Her ‘review’ of Southland Tales is so lame, I’m going to have to retract my statement. Not like she gives it a thumbs up or anything, but it’s just so unimpressive. Try [...]
Dear FilmFemme, What should I do if someone invited me to see a movie and I suggest like 3 or 4 good movies that are out that I want to see (like Eastern Promises or The Brave One or Into the Wild) and he comes back with “Let’s see Resident Evil“? Confused in California Dear [...]
