Movie Review: Control Room (2004)


In 2019 I found some old Word documents with movie reviews I wrote back before I had a blog. I’m posting each review backdated to the day I wrote it.

Title: Control Room
Release Date: January 2004
Director: Jehane Noujaim
Production Company: Noujaim Films
Summary/Review:

Insightful film on the surface is a documentary about the Arabic news network Al-Jazeera during the first month of the Iraq war, is actually an investigation into how news is delivered and what Truth is.  One of the more thought-provoking films I’ve ever seen.

Rating: *****

Movie Review: Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle (2004)


In 2019 I found some old Word documents with movie reviews I wrote back before I had a blog. I’m posting each review backdated to the day I wrote it.

Title: Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle
Release Date: July 30, 2004
Director: Danny Leiner
Production Company: Senator International | Kingsgate Films | Endgame Entertainment
Summary/Review:

Funny, stoner road trip movie follows a pair of post-college Asian-Americans as they journey around New Jersey in search of a White Castle.  Definitely not a Great Movie, but a collection of crude humor and wicked satire that makes me laugh a lot.  Bonus point for literally featuring my place of birth as a location.

Rating: ***
