Movie News from Last Week

Ah, there’s nothing like week-old news. It’s sort of the reason I don’t read newspapers anymore; by the time I read them, I’ve usually already read the stories somewhere else online. Unfortunately, I don’t have the time to report on every movie announcement that comes out in a week like some blogs do; a full-time […]

State of Play: Best Movie of 2009?

The summer movies have yet to arrive, but 2009 has already treated us with a few surprises. State of Play, the political thriller starring Russell Crowe, Rachel McAdams, Helen Mirren, Robin Wright Penn, Jeff Daniels and Ben Affleck, is the best of the year thus far and could find its way into the Top Ten […]

X-Men Volume 1 and Volume 2 Come to DVD

I was born in the 80′s and grew up watching cartoons into the early nineties. One of my staples on Saturday morning was the X-Men animated series. Despite being a DC Comics fan and not a Marvel one as much, there was something about the show that had me waiting with bated breath for every […]

The Uninvited is No A Tale of Two Sisters

I was excited when I popped The Uninvited into my DVD player this morning. After all, I was looking forward to some creepy dead kid and a bunch of disturbing monsters haunting a scantily clad Odette Yustman. But then it dawned on me that I was thinking of The Unborn, that other January horror release. […]

Movie Review: The Spirit Needs More Sin, Less City

After years of waiting for the Sin City sequel, fans got stuck with a different Frank Miller movie – this one solely written and directed by him. Based on the comic book series by Will Eisner, The Spirit has the same look and feel of Sin City, except that it is just so, so bad. […]

Taking Woodstock Movie Trailer

Taking Woodstock comes to limited theaters on August 14, 2009, and looks like it could be an enjoyable late-summer event. A comedy about the unsuspecting hosts of the famed Woodstock event, the movie stars some recognizable-but-not-well-known actors, though stand-outs include Emile Hirsch and Imelda Staunton. Watch the Taking Woodstock movie trailer here:

Cats and Dogs 2 Pushed Back to 2010! No!!!

Disheartening news… first Harry Potter was pushed back from fall of 2008 to the summer of 2009, and now the highly anticipated sequel to the hit blockbuster Cats and Dogs has been bumped to the summer of 2010. What is the world coming to when a film like Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty […]

First Pic of Russell Crowe as Robin Hood

Is anyone else excited about Robin Hood? The movie is directed by Ridley Scott, who rarely – if ever – does a bad movie. The movie stars Russell Crowe, who, despite his off-screen behavior, is one damn fine actor. The movie also stars no-names like Cate Blanchett, Vanessa Redgrave and William Hurt. In other words, […]

Synecdoche, New York Movie Review

Charlie Kaufman is undoubtedly one of the most creative minds at work today, as exemplified by such multilayered films as Adaptation, Being John Malkovich and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Those titles are some of the most unique properties released in the last ten years, so it’s a bit surprising that his directorial debut, […]

DVD Review: Caprica Pilot Episode

Battlestar Galactica is done, but Caprica is just beginning. Sci-Fi Channel hopes fans acknowledge that transition and stick around because one is just like the other, right? Oh, and for the fact that the channel doesn’t have much else to offer. Caprica is set 50 years before BSG on Caprica, which in only a few […]

DVD Review: The Wrestler

Mickey Rourke and The Wrestler arrive on DVD this Tuesday, April 21, 2009. Rourke, easily considered the biggest comeback kid of 2008 – if not the 21st century – went from career obscurity to major Oscar contender overnight with his tragic performance as an aging professional wrestler in Darren Aronofsky’s masterpiece. The Wrestler was denied […]

Monsters vs. Aliens Movie Review: 3D Over Quality?

DreamWorks Animation’s latest, Monsters vs. Aliens, is an attempt to combine the world of Monsters, Inc. and The Incredibles to make an action-packed comedy where… monsters battle aliens. The movie is also in 3D, and thank God for that; its visuals are its saving grace. In Monsters vs. Aliens, a planet explodes, sending a meteorite […]

Parks and Recreation Bringing Down The Office

Amy Poehler’s Parks and Recreation debuted on NBC between two episodes of The Office last week, and had its second episode last night. The comedy runs in the vein of The Office, in that it’s about a manager who is so not-self-aware in regards to her job that she doesn’t realize how idiotic and stupid […]

Has Heroes Found Salvation?

Back in December, we reported that Bryan Fuller was returning to Heroes after he had moved on to do the two-season Pushing Daisies. Fuller was one of the original masterminds of the first season, which was so excellent in so many ways. Though no one could necessarily attribute the show’s sudden decline to Fuller’s absence, […]

DVD Review: The Day the Earth Stood Still (2008)

2008′s remake of the science-fiction classic The Day the Earth Stood Still was not, when all things were said and done, a box office failure, but Fox had to be disappointed with its lackluster opening weekend, lukewarm critical reception and quick fade from theaters. The overall so-so response sums up the movie pretty well. The […]
