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 […]
The summer movie season officially kicks off today with what could be the biggest movie of the year: Iron Man 2, which reunites director Jon Favreau with now-superstar Robert Downey, Jr. The plot kicks off moments after the first movie ended and so does the entertainment, as the movie more or less lives up to […]

Screenings were often at capacity, with more […]
To start off this review on a strong note, as a bit of a surprise to me, Harry Brown actually may be my favorite film of the year so far.Â Driven by another amazing performance by Michael Caine, who like Morgan Freeman gets better with age, Harry Brown is a gritty slice-of life story set […]
The summer movie season is only days away, which means it’s time for every movie website on the planet to come out with their summer movie guides. But you’re not going to waste time on those other sites, right? We’ve got everything you need to know about 2010’s summer movies right here at FilmJabber, starting […]
The sequel to one of the scariest monster movies in recent memory has come to DVD, skipping a theatrical release entirely – at least in the U.S. Direct-to-DVD sequels are usually a sign of something foul, but there are gems to be found on occasion. The Descent: Part 2, unfortunately, is not one of those […]
On Tuesday, April 27, people will die. After all, you can buy your very own copy of a tombstone while watching Armageddon near. Touchstone Home Entertainment is releasing two Blu-Ray worthy films to the format on this day: the Kurt Russell-starring western Tombstone and the Michael Bay epic Armageddon.
A touching and at times disturbing documentary about Hurricane Katrina, Trouble the Water is an Oscar-nominated film that shows footage taken by citizens during and after the flooding of New Orleans. While the movie doesn’t tell us anything we don’t already know, it does give a rare personal glimpse at the human toll, psychologically and […]
Golden Globe-winner Emily Blunt stars as England’s longest serving monarch in The Young Victoria, a period-piece drama whose biggest claim to fame may be the seriously cocky acceptance speech the film’s costume designer gave after winning an Oscar. But we won’t hold that headshaking moment against it, as The Young Victoria is a surprisingly well […]
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. […]
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.
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, […]
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 […]
The action-thriller The Losers explodes onto theaters on April 23, and if the movie has one thing going for it, it’s Zoe Saldana. The gorgeous actress, hot off her career-defining 2009 (she steamed up theaters in two of the biggest movies of the year, Star Trek and Avatar), will play a deadly femme fatale/CIA agent […]
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 […]
