All in He Said - She Said

It's time for another installment of "He said - She said" with J.J. Abrams' highly anticipated Star Trek, starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, John Cho and more. As always, we recommend seeing the film before reading, because we're talking ALL aspects of the film, including plot spoilers. Editor's note: For the complete Scorecard Review of Star Trek, click here. Jeff Bayer gives the film a 9/10. He also had long, long conversations with Nick trying to explain to him that Star Trek is better than X-Men Origins: Wolverine. One key point he didn't bring up until now is, both films use the word "engage." The one with the claws didn't do it justice.

It's he (Nick Allen) and she (Morrow McLaughlin).

It's time for another installment of He Said/She Said with the bromance I Love You, Man. It's She (Morrow McLaughlin) and He (Nick Allen).

She Said

I feel like I spend the majority of these dialogues bitching and moaning and I was really hoping to dole out some kudos this time around the block--especially when the previews looked so funny and there is nothing that perks me up quite like a fun buddy movie. I love Paul Rudd, I love Jason Segel, I love the should've been one big love fest that ended with me pirouetting happily around the theater.

Instead, I spent most of my time trying to force myself to laugh so I could talk myself into liking it, thus, putting myself in a position to not be the big downer

It's our first ever he said/he said ... all about Watchmen starring Billy Crudup, Malin Akerman, Matthew Goode, Jackie Earle Haley and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. This time around we have Jeff Bayer (didn't read the graphic novel) and Nick Allen (read the graphic novel).As always, I don't recommend reading this if you haven't seen the movie.

Jeff says

Well, did it deliver for you? I thought the beginning was great, the middle was OK, and the ending just zapped the fun out of the whole thing. So before we get into the nuts and bolts, is this the story you expected to see? Or are there huge differences between the novel and the film? But the big thing I need to figure out before anything else ... what makes a superhero super

It's once again time for He Said/She Said. With he (Nick Allen) and she (Morrow McLaughlin) talking about Friday the 13th. He Said

Wow. This movie was a blast. As a fan of the entire franchise, I was thrilled to near death by this reboot, starting at the very beginning with the killing of Jason's mom, and continuing until the very end of the movie. In fact, the extensive opening that ends with the film's title card had the audience (and myself included) applauding and cheering. Much like the rest of the film, the sequence was tense, hilarious, and ultimately - horrifying.

The film has obvious "faults", (meaning cliches and people assisting in their own demise in some dumb way), but like last month's My Bloody Valentine 3-D, Friday embraces such elements for

It's once again time for He Said/She Said, starring Nick Allen as "He" and Morrow McLaughlin and "She." She Said:

It's fascinating how this movie just inches into average when all of the individual elements are, conceptually, so extremely cool. Mutant psychic powers are always a romp and the movie itself looks like it's trying out for grainy, wide-lens John Wooesque look-a-like of the year. And despite all that, it's tepid and a wee unoriginal. The underlying story is summed up so hastily in order to get to the action sequences, that there are gaps and holes galore. Plus, the setup itself is so logically immovable the rest of it is actually impossible--there would be no escaping Division if they had the best remote "watchers" in the world and any attempt at

It's he (Nick Allen) and she (Morrow McLaughlin) talking about the new film The Spirit. She Said

From what I understand of the original Spirit series by Will Eisner, the movie version is a gaudy, heartless sacrilege, but I haven't been exposed to the original. This is a disadvantage for me, because I have no real grasp of whether the movie even comes close to embodying Eisner's unique vision (according to everyone else, that's a big nay); and so I have to go with my gut and my gut wasn't displeased. The movie was hammy and silly, but fully aware--and thoroughly enjoying--its own hammy silliness. Watching Samuel L. with his bonehead clone thugs ("Huevos," "Rancheros," "Pathos," and "Dildos," among others) camping it up to a level of ecstatic extremes is
