Unstoppable Movie Review

Denzel Washington teams up with director Tony Scott yet again, and for the second year in a row a suspense thriller about trains. In Unstoppable, one momentary lapse of judgment leads to an incredibly dangerous situation: a runaway, explosive-filled train traveling 70 miles per hour towards a densely populated city.

The Disappearance of Alice Creed Movie Review

The low budget indie thriller The Disappearance of Alice Creed comes to DVD next Tuesday. The movie, which stars Gemma Arterton, Martin Compston Eddie Marsan and no one else, is about a young woman who is kidnapped by two masked men and locked in a small room for ransom. But as is often the case, […]

Made in Dagenham Movie Review

A well-executed film with a great British cast, Made in Dagenham tells the story of a group of female Ford factory workers who went on strike to gain equal pay for women and in the process brought England’s industry to its knees.  Sally Hawkins is excellent as the lead protester Rita O’Grady.  While I don’t […]

The Winning Season Movie Review

Sam Rockwell and Emma Roberts star in The Winning Season, a basketball movie that arrives on DVD next week. Originally released to theaters in September, it’s a film few people have heard of or will ever see, despite the talent involved. Typically, it’s not a good sign when a movie is released to theaters (albeit […]

Best Worst Movie Movie Review

Bad movies can be good. If a filmmaker invests his heart and soul into making a movie and it ends up being terrible, that movie can be a riot. Sometimes, rarely, a movie can be so bad that it will gain a cult following of viewers to the degree that screenings of the picture will […]

Jonah Hex Movie Review

There was a [brief] time in American history where people would say it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter how bad the movie is. It had Megan Fox in it, and she plays a prostitute and wears a corset. It doesn’t matter how bad the movie is, it’s worth watching. That time in American history lasted […]

New Photos from Julie Taymor’s The Tempest

I wasn’t a huge fan of Titus, but that’s not stop me from getting all excited and stuff for Julie Taymor’s upcoming adaptation of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Taymor, known best for her unique and creative visual style, looks like she’s bringing it all with The Tempest, which stars Helen Mirren, Jeremy Irons and Djimon […]

A Christmas Carol Movie Review

It’s a timeless tale of redemption and forgiveness, of holiday giving and the Christmas spirit (or three spirits). A Christmas Carol is one of the most well known stories in the world and has been reinvented and re-imagined countless times over the last century. But with Disney’s latest incarnation of the movie, we’re once again […]

New Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis Black Swan Photos

If you haven’t watched the movie trailer for the upcoming drama-thriller Black Swan, do so now (you can watch the Black Swan movie trailer here). Why? Because it looks absolutely badass. Natalie Portman stars as a ballet dancer who… shall we say… has some self esteem issues. When a new girl arrives (played by Mila […]

The Secret in Their Eyes Movie Review

Rape, murder, love and life, they’re all on display in the tantalizing drama-thriller The Secret in Their Eyes (El secreto de sus ojos). The Oscar winner for Best Foreign Language Picture at this year’s ceremonies, The Secret in Their Eyes is one of the best movies of the decade and further proof that other countries […]

New Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Photos!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I opens this Friday in theaters everywhere (and we mean everywhere), bringing this generation’s most storied franchise that much closer to its epic climax. Those who can’t wait until Friday to see more of Harry, Ron and Hermione (especially Hermione) should be excited to know that FilmJabber has […]

Four Lions Movie Review

Surely to be one of the more controversial movies of the year, especially in this Tea Party-led society we suddenly live in, Four Lions is about four British Muslims who, disillusioned with the western world, decide they’re going to wage jihad against their country. In other words, they’re going to blow some sh*t up. Oh, […]

Morning Glory Movie Review

From director Roger Michell (Venus, Notting Hill) and writer Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada, 27 Dresses) comes Morning Glory, a funny, witty behind-the-scenes look into all the glory and ugliness of early morning TV.  Rachel McAdams stars as a rising TV producer, who, after being laid off from her job, begins work at […]

Netflix Instant Play with an International Flavor

To most, the word ‘anime’ conjures up images of children with eyes that are way too big, looking surprised under a spiky mane of improbably colored hair with high, squeaky voices spouting pseudo-silly clichés with little regard to the actual context of the aforementioned trite remarks.

Blu-Ray Review: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Michael Cera haters got a smack down this summer. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is as if all of Cera’s work up until this point has been preparation for this one uber-role. Michaela Cera is best at playing Michael Cera, but equip him with an awesome screenplay and super powers and you get Michael Cera […]
