Bolt and Twilight Move in for the Kill

In the devastating hole left by the retreat of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Disney’s Bolt and Summit’s Twilight have moved into feast on the potential box office dollars left behind. The movies – both of which aim at younger audiences (Bolt at considerably younger) – had been staying clear of the coveted November […]

Inglorious Bastards is Actually… Austin Powers 4?

Quentin Tarantino is an interesting fellow. Known for some of the most unique and ambitious films of the last two decades, Tarantino has directed some of the grittiest and most clever movies of recent memory. Word has been buzzing around the recent news of the arrival of Inglorious Bastards, a WWII film that has been […]

Harry Potter 6 Release Date Pushed Back to 2010

Just kidding… Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will not be delayed that much, but to the horror of Harry Potter fans around the world, it was announced today that the movie would indeed be shifted from its November 2008 release date to Summer 2009 – July 17, 2009 to be exact. Warner Brothers said […]

Indiana Jones 5… Without Shia LaBeouf?

George Lucas, who doesn’t inspire much confidence these days after three so-so Star Wars prequels and an Indiana Jones movie that could have, should have, could have so easily been so much better, is on my good side for the day. While Indiana Jones 5 is still just an idea bouncing around in his head […]

Lost Boys 2: The Tribe Movie Review

It’s been a long, long, long, long time since I saw the original Lost Boys, the Kiefer Sutherland/Corey Haim/Corey Feldman-starring vampire cult classic. I recall enjoying it and that it took place in Santa Clara, but considering that I was five when it was originally released, I never quite got on the Lost Boys bandwagon, […]

Transformers 2 Lends a Hand to Shia’s Hand

The Associated Press is reporting that due to Shia LaBeouf’s recent stint with the law – and another car – the blockbuster sequel Transformers 2 may actually write his injury into the script. LaBeouf’s truck was struck a few days ago while taking a left turn, causing him and the others in the car – […]

7 Reasons Why X-Files 2 Flopped

The X-Files: I Want to Believe opened to a disastrous $10.2 million over its opening weekend, begging the question of how a movie based on one of the most successful movies of all time could do so poorly at the box office, even against the likes of The Dark Knight. While some box office analysts […]

Employees Won’t Go To Work After Batman

The Dark Knight is one of the most anticipated movies of the year. Fandango is reporting that so many midnight showings have sold out that theaters are having to add 3am and 6am showings (although I just went and bought tickets for a midnight showing at the best theater in town without any problem). More […]

5 Ways to Make Hancock (2008) Better

I just Hancock, the superhero action-comedy starring Will Smith as a drunken bastard of a superhero. While the guy stops crime and saves people, he does so with complete disregard for his reputation and city property, often causing millions of dollars in damage every time he shows up to save the day. The movie is […]

Pretty Cool Saw V Movie Poster

I hate the Saw movies. Despite what some people think, the first one was bad and they just got worse from there. Bad acting and directing gave way to one attempt after the next to shock the audience more and more, while becoming more convoluted and cocky with each outing. The fourth Saw movie was […]

Daniel Craig Loses 3 Fingers During James Bond Shoot

James Bond really is 007 after yet another accident on the Quantum of Solace cost Daniel Craig, who plays James Bond, three of his fingers. Details of how he lost his trigger finger and two others is still unclear, but at least now he won’t be able to make any un-gentleman-like gestures. OK, in reality, […]

Indiana Jones: The Real Crystal Skull

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull may have been a bit cheesy, but the movie is based on a real legend. John Trybus from Archaeology Magazine notified me a few weeks ago about a new section on their website devoted to Indiana Jones, and there’s an interesting article about the “real” crystal […]

Young People Fucking Movie Review

Review by Robert Bell (A-) Featuring clever and natural dialogue that is anchored by uniformly impressive performances from the young (mostly) Canadian cast, Young People F*cking is a refreshingly real sex comedy sure to be a cult favourite with many. What makes YPF stand out from the endless parade of soulless sex romps are the […]

Where is the X-Files Movie Promotion?

The X-Files: I Want to Believe is coming to theaters on July 25, less than two months away. The movie is arguably the biggest movie on 20th Century Fox’s roster for 2008, and if not at least in the top three behind The Day the Earth Stood Still and The Happening. The X-Files 2 has […]
