Aeon Flux – Movie Review

Republibot 1.0's picture

Aeon Flux is a bit of a conundrum to review as far as a movie goes. It is a big screen adaptation of an all flash over substance cartoon in which a scantily clad female assassin jumped through body contorting physical stunts in the pursuit of her quarry only to die at the end of each episode. And, oh yeah, each installment only lasted 2 minutes. And it was made for MTV – Music Television. You know, the place where intellectual depth is prized above all else, unless, of course there is the option of shaking your booty or there is a spring break fashion show or pretty much anything else sparkly that would catch the eye of an average attention deficit 15 year old.

Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith – Movie Review (**1/2)

Republibot 1.0's picture

Before I begin my review, in the interest of full disclosure, I feel it important to say that even though I am of that generation that grew up with the original Star Wars movies, they were never formational films for me. Actually, Seven Blows of the Dragon was a much more important film in my youth than all three original Star Wars films put together. Granted, I have gone to every movie opening day (with the exception of Episode IV – A New Hope), but that has been more to maintain whatever geek cred I may or may not have had at the time of the various releases than any fanatical need to be the first in line.

REPUBLIBOT WEEKEND MOVIE PREVIEW: Movies Opening 2-19-10

Republibot 1.0's picture

Is February over yet? Honestly, will this winter ever end? Anyway, it looks like a pretty sparse movie going week on the Republibot Weekend Movie Preview. We only have one even remotely interesting movie opening. But first, a quick reminder: I have not seen any of these movies, nor have I researched any of them. The whole point of this weekly feature is for to pass judgment on films I have not yet seen. All of the film information presented here, including the plot summary, has been pulled from the Opening This Week page of IMDb (http://www.imdb.com/nowplaying/). This week we are previewing Shutter Island, The Ghost Writer and a couple of others that I don’t want to scroll down and copy and paste back up here…

So, if you are ready, let’s begin – right after the jump.

The lovely and talented Republibabe (Republibot 36-24-36) and I went to see this new "Star Trek" motion picture....

Short answer, we both really loved it. Go see it now. Seriously. There's a show starting at a multiplex near you in about 20 minutes. Go. Now. We'll be here when you get back.

Long answer, below the jump

Warning: Spoilers Ho!
