Comedies can win Oscars, or at least Golden Globes. Foreign films get their own category. So, aside from family films, the one genre that never gets much recognition other than through box office dollars is the action movie genre. Action films have become blurred with thrillers recently, as Hollywood has leaned more toward serious, realistic […]
Has anyone realized that 2008 has just as many big movies, if not more big movies, than 2007 did? We get Batman, Bond, Harry, Indy, Kirk, Rambo and Mulder over the span of approximately 180 days, and those are only a fraction of the cool-looking movies coming out this year. Of course, the most anticipated […]
As many people know, Roman Polanski is not allowed to return to the United States or travel to countries that have an extradition treaty with the U.S. (like Great Britain) due to his conviction of “engaging in unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor” in the late 1970’s. With a new movie called Roman Polanski: Wanted […]
Some may take offense to the fact that I may appear more concerned about the next Batman movie than Heath Ledger, but that is not my intent with this article. Heath Ledger’s death was shocking and a little depressing, considering that he was a great and underrated actor who, I believe, was on the verge […]
Up until now, I’ve stayed quiet on the Golden Globes. Yes, the reason is partially that I’ve been too busy to do a blog post, but after the winners were announced in a press conference earlier in the week, I had to chime in. How in God’s name did Sweeney Todd win Best Musical or […]
Michael Clayton (2007), the critically acclaimed drama-thriller starring George Clooney, is returning to theaters on January 25th, presumably with hopes of getting some Oscar recognition. While quite incredible, the movie has suffered from a few things that could hurt its chances: It didn’t make any money. Sadly, financial success is often a factor in winning […]
The Top Ten Movies of 2007 List, as selected by me, Erik Samdahl, is here! As I said all year, 2007 was a terrific 365 days for film, as there were more quality movies than the last two or three years combined. I usually scrape to put a Top Ten List together, but this year […]
We wrote this January 2008 movie list a little late, but here are the January films ordered by rank of excitement factor. With exception to the first two films in the list (of course, Cloverfield is on the list), the rest range from uninspiring to downright garbage.
Watch the all-new movie trailer for George A. Romero's Diary of the Dead, a hand-held approach to the zombie genre. Hear what we have to see about the movie trailer, and what we think about Mr. Romero, the so-called master of zombie movies.
I normally don’t feature projects like this, but writer David Desjardin contacted me in regards to a project he has been working on called Heavy Weapon. David, who’s in the military, decided to write an action movie script after he and his friends found themselves complaining about how modern action movies don’t compare to those […]
Ukranian hottie Olga Kurylenko has been selected to bed with James Bond in the new James Bond film called… James Bond 22. Kurylenko is a very attractive model, as seen from this lovely image (main picture), and that’s about all that I have to say about that. Since I’ve already laid into Yahoo! once in […]
I warned you that I had big things coming, and those “things” are here! After nearly six months of slow development and several weeks of hectic chaos, Movie-Source.com has become FilmJabber. I started Movie-Source.com way back in high school in 1998, and it has gone through many renovations over the years. I changed the design […]
I normally don’t attack other websites, but since this other website is one of the largest portals in the world, I had to point this out. I’ve noticed this occurring on Yahoo!’s homepage for the last month or two now, and normally don’t think much of it, but today is just ridiculous. As you know, […]
I like Johnny Depp. He’s a fun, dynamic actor. But ever since Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl put him back on the map, critics and audiences alike have kissed his butt like he is the ruler of the world. Has everyone failed to notice that he has only done two […]
