“I have just seen an instant classic.” That’s what I said to myself as I left the theater, with the music and adrenaline of “Sing Street” still coursing through my veins. It’s the kind of movie you want to turn around…

Here are our picks for some great American movies! Why not celebrate your Independence Day holiday by popping up some popcorn and enjoying one?
Check Out Steven’s review for one of the biggest surprises of 2013, the epic zombie flick WORLD WAR Z.
J.J. Abram’s follow up to the 2009 reboot, is the perfect blend of action and drama, thanks to Abram’s smart direction, a mysterious villain and all-star performances from Pine, Cumberbatch, Quinto, and Urban. STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS may not boldly go where no one has ever gone before, but it is both bold and beautiful.
Thanks to slight of hand, a fully developed Tony Stark, and one of Robert Downey Jr’s finest performances IRON MAN 3 is the first summer blockbuster.

It’s shaping up to be a big night for Lifetime. For Lohan? Hard to say. But if you’re looking for witty commentary, look no further than the rude, snarky, hilarious, and yes, sometimes supportive comments on twitter. Here are some of the best and worst zingers. I’ll be updating this post regularly with the latest tweets.
Mike Finkelstein was recently treated to more stories about sparkling vampires. This time, however, a little girl was involved, and that caused a bunch of new problems. Damn kids…always starting sh*t…Here is his review of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II”

Mike Finkelstein has always known that truth is stranger than fiction…how else could he explain his life so far? But that belief was just proven yet again when he went to the movies one day, and saw just how far one CIA operation went to get back their men. Here is his review of “Argo”.
Mike Finkelstein wants to be a cowboy. Sadly, he is not a cowboy. But then, one day, some random, skeevy looking place gives him the chance to make him think he’s a cowboy. Instead of working, though, the process really, really, really messes with his mind, and now, he looks like Jack Nicholson at the end of One Flew Over the Cukoo’s Nest. Next time, maybe he’ll just go to the movies. Here is his review of “Total Recall”.

Mike Finkelstein is psychic. You pick a card, any card, and he will tell you what it is! Okay…is it the…four of spades?! No?? Um…six of hearts! No…Okay, okay, one more guess! Queen of clubs!!! NO?!?! Damnit…Fine…While he tries to work out his psychic kinks, here is his review for “Red Lights”.
Mike Finkelstein just got bit by a spider. Suddenly, his vision and strength seem to be improving tenfold, and he is able to sense all these dangers from around him.

Mike Finkelstein took a trip to Rome recently. It was a city filled with wonderful people, beautiful women, and gorgeous scenery. Oh, and there was a little anxious man named Woody that followed him around everywhere…it was somewhat strange. Either way, he found time while there to see a film about the location. Here is his review of “To Rome With Love”.
Mike Finkelstein wants to be a pretty, pretty princess. He wants all the boys of the kingdom to fawn over him and fight for his hand. Sadly, he soon woke up from his dream and realized he still lived somewhere around New York City…eh well. He’ll just have to live out his thoughts on the movie screen. Here is his review for “Brave”.
Mike Finkelstein is terrified about the end of the world. He’s wondering how things will work out if we all knew that everything was going to end. However, instead of watching some Michael Bay movies to brush up on the subject (Bruce Willis got out of the oil drilling business years ago), he decided to aim for something a little more…human. Here is his review of “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World”.
