For the Love of Film...

Welcome to my review website. I love movies, and here’s the place I talk about them. You’ll find my ratings, on a scale of zero to five stars, in all of my posts. For each film, I’ve written either a full critique, which is a longer piece; a compact review, which is usually just a paragraph; or a quick take, which is only a sentence or two. I also post articles about the world of cinema on my film blog.

In the Comments section on each page, feel free to share your own thoughts and feelings about the films discussed here.

Lights! Camera! Action!

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Adapted from Bryan Lee O’Malley’s graphic novels, this film mines the oeuvres of video games and superhero movies, mixes in post-modern music and pop-culture references, and dashes on several coats of humor and flashy design. Director Edgar Wright gets the best from a good young cast in a fun romp that sometimes hints at deeper things. Astutely observes today’s culture. Enjoyable.
