Animal Kingdom Movie Review

Animal Kingdom is the gritty and violent debut feature from talented writer/director David Michod.   Set in the dangerous Melbourne underworld, Animal Kingdom revolves around a young man thrust into a family of crime and the severe consequences that result.  Michod has crafted a near great yet slightly flawed film. Read the full Animal Kingdom movie […]

Summer Movie Guide: 10 Movies to See in August 2010

The summer movie season is fading. It is, after all, August.  Unfortunately, the bad movies (G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra) far outweigh the good (The Sixth Sense) in this miserable month as studios drop the projects they at one point thought were worthy of greatness but have pretty much acknowledged most audiences would rather take […]

Caged In: One-dimensional Performances Dodge Actor’s Career

“Why couldn’t you put the bunny back in the box?” It’s one of the more poorly delivered lines in an otherwise enjoyable film. Devoid of emotion, uttered with all the enthusiasm of a character that is more than half asleep, that bit of dialogue typified the overall performance of the lead character in the 1997 […]

The Career of M. Night Shyamalan: To Love or Hate

More divisive than the Health-Care debate, more controversial than immigration reform, more polarizing than the red state/blue state divide is…the relationship moviegoers have with M. Night Shyamalan. Few filmmakers in history provoke such strong emotions by the mere mention of their name – go ahead, try it, ask anyone what their thoughts are on Shyamalan […]

Suicide Girls Must Die DVD Giveaway + Exclusive Clip

Suicide Girls Must Die!, the world’s first reality horror movie (according to the tag line on the DVD cover, though I tend to believe it), is coming to DVD on June 29! We’re giving away three DVD copies of the unique movie, and also have posted an exclusive video clip from the film. When twelve […]

Poor People With Tough Decisions: X-Men Vs. Spider-Man

Many people face tough decisions in life, and I feel for them. I really do. Well, I don’t, but for argument’s sake, I do. And then there’s Michael Fassbender, who is facing a quandary of epic proportions. I mean, I can’t imagine what the man is going through right now, torn, divided and downright ravished. […]

Guillermo Del Toro Backs Out of The Hobbit

Bad news for fans anticipating the upcoming Lord of the Rings prequel The Hobbit: director Guillermo Del Toro has quit the production and will not direct the two-part movie series. “In light of ongoing delays in the setting of a start date for filming The Hobbit, I am faced with the hardest decision of my […]

Google Trends Suggests No One Cares About Shrek 4

Shrek Forever After – the fourth Shrek movie – comes to theaters this Friday, and no one cares. After Shrek and Shrek 2 proved to be critical successes (Shrek 2 was better than the first one, in my opinion), DreamWorks spent the few years leading up to 2007 creating the atrocity that was Shrek the […]

Daybreakers DVD Review

Daybreakers, the modest hit from early January (modest meaning that it earned $30 million in the U.S. against a $20 million budget), bites its way onto DVD and Blu-Ray this Tuesday, bringing with it a clever idea, questionable writing and an impressive making-of featurette. For vampire fans, Daybreakers, despite its shortcomings, may be worth owning […]

Avatar 2 Movie Details: Into the Abyss

James Cameron really likes oceans. Have you noticed that? And in Avatar 2, we’re going to see much more of the oceans and less of the jungle, if Mr. Cameron has anything to say about it. And since he can say just about anything about Avatar 2 and do it, we have to believe him. […]

No Batman 3D?

Those looking forward to Batman 3D may have to dress up in their living rooms to see anything resembling the third dimension, as cinematographer Wally Pfister, who shot both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, recently told Cinematical that Batman 3 likely won’t be shot in 3D.

It’s Complicated Blu-Ray Review

The Meryl Streep/Alec Baldwin/Steve Martin romantic comedy It’s Complicated arrives on DVD and Blu-Ray this coming Tuesday, April 27, 2010. The modest hit, from director Nancy Meyers, is about a divorced woman (Streep) who starts an affair with her ex-husband (Baldwin), who is married to a much younger knock-out (Lake Bell). At the same time, […]

Leonard Nimoy Quits Acting to Join MMA

Here’s the craziest story of the day: Leonard Nimoy is retiring from acting, but he’s not going to go peacefully into the night. Nimoy is going to take a stab at amateur-level mixed martial arts (MMA). OK, that second part isn’t true. Leonard Nimoy is retiring from acting, but he presumably is going to sit […]

Bomb of the Summer: The Last Airbender?

Everyone knows that M. Night Shyalaman’s last two movies have sucked big time, so there’s a lot riding on his latest film The Last Airbender, which is apparently the first of a trilogy. I recently read an article at a respectable website where the one of the authors was describing The Last Airbender as his […]

Here’s a snapshot of some of the most interesting stories: Due to a scheduling conflict, Bryan Singer is no longer attached to direct X-Men: First Class. He will instead serve as producer. The likelihood of the movie being any good has just […]
