Hounddog Movie Review: Worth the Controversy?

Dakota Fanning headlines the controversial drama Hounddog, a movie best known for featuring a rape scene of the young actress. Directed by Deborah Kampmeier, Hounddog features strong acting and a good screenplay, but it fades in the end as it fails to get to the point. Hounddog is about a young girl named Lewellen (Fanning), […]

Donnie Darko Sequel: S. Darko DVD Review

There are many movies that have been released over the years where sequels make sense. That doesn’t mean they need sequels, but you can see how it’ll work. A sequel to Donnie Darko, however, never crossed my mind. Donnie Darko, one of the most unique, intriguing, mind-bending and debate-invigorating films of the 21st century, is […]

Weekend Box Office: Does Star Trek Win Again?

The answer is no, but not by much. Sony had to be a little nervous when looking at Saturday’s numbers (to get Sunday’s box office estimates), as Angelys & Demons polishes up with only $48 million, only $5 million ahead of near-repeat offender Star Trek. One can only presume that Sony’s estimates were $1-2 million […]

Wolverine Video Movie Review

Ah,Wolverine. Where does one begin? This movie was just plain awful, and the more I think about it, the more I hate it. It’s sad when such a movie exists that I would rather watch X-Men 3 ten times over before seeing this stinker again, and X-Men 3 was no walk in the park. X-Men […]

DVD Review: My Bloody Valentine 3D

My Bloody Valentine 3D comes to DVD this Tuesday, May 19, 2009, and I’ll just say: wait until the new Friday the 13th hits stores. When I saw the movie in theaters, I found it mildly amusing, if only for how bad it was and for the fact that it was in 3D. The movie […]

Star Trek Video Movie Review

I am finally venturing into the world of YouTube (the creation side, that is), so check out my first-ever video movie review below… I plan to get some better video editing software than Windows Movie Maker in the near future (am thinking Adobe Premiere, since I already know how to use it) and clearly need […]

Is IMAX Destroying Its Brand?

The last couple of years have been full of story’s about IMAX’s success. Ever since the theater chain, which was originally dedicated to documentaries filmed with clunky cameras, started showing “real” movies, its revenues have skyrocketed, and for good reason. People pay – and they do pay – a premium of up to $5 (more […]

Movies to See this Weekend, In Theaters on DVD

Summer hasn’t even officially started yet, but it feels like we’re in the heart of it. The third blockbuster arrives this weekend, but other than that, there aren’t many options for those of you already caught up. In theaters, there’s Angels & Demons, the sequel/prequel to The Da Vinci Code. To call it anticipated may […]

To Celebrity Apprentice: Bring Back The Apprentice

Celebrity Apprentice is a fun show, full of screaming celebrities and other shenanigans and Donald Trump. Many of the celebrities take the show seriously, or at least somewhat seriously, but some don’t… and that’s why I miss the original Apprentice, where real business people competed for a real job. After watching the season finale, I […]

American Idol Hype Machine Fails, Thank God

American Idol‘s finalists have been determined, and the early favorite to win is not among them. Of course, the guy was never a favorite of mine. Danny Gokey will go no further than third place in the popular Fox show, and its good riddance to a man who road the coattails of his wife’s death […]

Watch the Gamer Movie Trailer

Gamer opens on September 4, 2009 and stars Gerard Butler. The movie has a pretty stupid plot (sort of like an online version of Death Race or The Condemned), but who knows… Here’s the Gamer movie trailer. What do you think?

Box Office: Star Trek Has Warp Legs

Star Trek, the massive box office winner of the weekend, turned out to be an even bigger contender than first imagined. The movie earned an additional $3 million on Sunday than estimated by its studio Paramount, giving the first signs that this movie truly is benefiting from word of mouth. The final weekend tally, including […]

Anne Hathaway’s Passengers Crashes and Burns

Anne Hathaway nearly earned herself an Oscar for her stunning performance in Rachel Getting Married, but she also starred in another 2008 movie, the little-known Passengers. A thriller about a young psychologist who is assigned to deal with the survivors of a jet liner crash only to find that the survivors not only have conflicting […]

Star Trek Warps to Major Box Office Weekend Win

Thank the Gods, Star Trek, the reboot by J.J. Abrams, didn’t implode on itself. This movie was one of the biggest question marks in years in terms of box office potential: it had the look, feel and action of a summer blockbuster, but it was, in the end, Star Trek, a franchise that was considered […]

The Curious DVD of Benjamin Button

One of the leaders during the Academy Award race, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button came away with “only” three minor awards, its thunder reduced to a whisper by the underdog-that-never-really-was Slumdog Millionaire.  The movie, which stars Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett and is directed by David Fincher, is now available on DVD. The Curious […]
