Mission: Impossible 4 Confirmed for May 2011

Jason Bourne may not be returning to theaters anytime soon, but America’s other favorite spy is: Paramount Pictures has confirmed that Tom Cruise will once again star as Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible 4, and that production is being fast-tracked for a 2011 Memorial Day Weekend release date – which would likely mean it will […]

New The Pacific Video Clips from HBO

HBO has posted two new video clips from their upcoming mini-series The Pacific, a 10-part drama that is, essentially, a sequel to the amazing Band of Brothers. Executive produced by Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg and Gary Goetzman, The Pacific tracks the intertwined real-life stories of three U.S. Marines Robert Leckie, John Basilone and Eugene Sledge […]

Couples Retreat: Where’s the Comedy?

Vince Vaughn has declared war on audiences. His pact with the Devil nearly complete, he has punished moviegoers with a trifecta of bad movies starting with 2007’s Fred Claus. Four Christmases wasn’t nearly as bad, but still terrible. And now, the once-funny actor has given us Couples Retreat, an unfunny and unimpressive romantic comedy that […]

Blu-Ray Action Movie Tuesday

Returning from a week-long vacation/business conference, I was delighted to discover Lionsgate was so kind to have sent me four action movies on Blu-Ray – three of which I’d forgotten even existed. The Running Man, Hard Rain, The Phantom and Drop Zone are now available to own on Blu-Ray.

The House of the Devil Movie Review

In a day and age where horror movies are generally defined by how loud and gruesome they can be, it’s refreshing to see a movie that harkens back to a quieter, creepier time. In the vein of old Stephen King and the demonic thrillers of the 1970’s, House of the Devil unleashes an intoxicatingly engaging […]

The Final Destination Movie Review

Ten years ago, a couple of filmmakers thought of a great idea: create a slasher film without a physical killer, where Death Itself enacts revenge. The result was a surprisingly suspenseful and well made horror movie. Three sequels later, however, all semblance of originality and cleverness has devolved into a 3D spectacle of awfulness. Read […]

Law Abiding Citizen Movie Review – Coming to Blu-Ray

In late October and into November, while box office phenom Paranormal Activity was making headlines, the Gerard Butler-starring action-thriller Law Abiding Citizen was slowly and quietly working its way to a sizable profit. The movie was an afterthought for many reasons – one because it appeared like yet another forgettable Butler flick (he’d already punished […]

The Boys Are Back Movie Review

From the director of Shine comes The Boys Are Back, which is easily one of the more underrated movies of 2009. Now out on DVD and Blu-Ray, the drama doesn’t break any new ground but still offers up some fine performances and compelling moments. Read FilmJabber’s full The Boys Are Back movie review.

The Book of Eli Movie Review: Almost Good, Not Quite

It’s been nearly ten years since we last heard from the Hughes brothers, but they’re back with the religiously themed apocalyptic action-thriller The Book of Eli, starring Denzel Washington. The movie looks great and features yet another good performance from the A-list actor, but the movie gets bogged down by its lack of a strong […]

Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus: Worst Movie Ever?

There is a certain point where the quality of a movie deteriorates such that the film transitions from good to bad then to so-bad-its-good.  Admittedly, I often enjoy watching the few films which transgress the border between bad and “how in the world did this script get funded”.  The issue is there is a level […]

The Lovely Bones Movie Review

Peter Jackson’s latest film The Lovely Bones was supposed to be a heavy awards contender. Its release date set for early December, the movie was supposed to make a lot of money and garner several nominations throughout the holidays. And then a few lukewarm reviews appeared, followed by a couple of bad ones. Paramount panicked […]

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus Movie Review

Though many people see Heath Ledger’s brilliant performance in The Dark Knight as his last hoorah, the late actor has one more trick up his sleeve: an amnesiac performer in Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus. Sadly, the movie doesn’t serve as an adequate send-off for the beloved man. Read FilmJabber’s full The Imaginarium […]

Prom Night in Mississippi Movie Review

Racism is a virus that has yet to be cured. Though the election of Barrack Obama was a historic and momentous occasion, his presidency has revealed a deep-seeded racism that still persists in society. Still, it’s shocking to hear that as of just two years ago, an American school was still allowing segregated proms. The […]

Blu-Ray Review: Surrogates Take Over On 1/26

Bruce Willis wants to save the world! Again! Surrogates, his latest action-thriller, debuts on Blu-Ray and DVD on January 26, 2010. More of a mystery-thriller than an action film, the movie offers up a cool concept with only decent execution, resulting in an entertaining but underwhelming film.

Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassins’ Ball Misses the Target

In 2006, Joe Carnahan unleashed the psychedelic Smokin’ Aces upon audiences, developing a cult following that unfortunately never formulated for his previous, much-better cop thriller Narc. Apparently, Smokin’ Aces was good enough to warrant a sequel – or at least a prequel – because Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassins’ Ball has now arrived on DVD and […]
