Death at a Funeral Remake: Great Idea. Or not.

The original Death at a Funeral was pretty good. Not great, but good. It was also made in 2007, with English-speaking actors, many of whom are recognizable. It was directed by Frank Oz. And they’re remaking it. Remaking a two-year old movie that already received a U.S. release. What the hell? This remake, of all […]

Arnold to Return to Terminator for Salvation

There’s not much to say here: MTV Movie Blogs held an interview with actor Terry Crews who confirmed that the Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger will indeed have a cameo in the upcoming action flick Terminator Salvation. Rumors had all but confirmed this already, but this is the surest sign so far. Arnold will also cameo in […]

Spock on the Fringe

Entertainment Weekly reported today that Leonard Nimoy is likely to join the cast of Fringe, the hit Fox television show that returned to the airways last night. Nimoy will play William Bell, a former colleague of William Bishop (John Noble) and the mysterious head of Massive Dynamics, the company that has a yet-to-be-defined role in […]

Adventureland Movie Review

For fans of Twilight who can’t wait until the fall to see werewolves and vampires interact, there’s Adventureland, which stars that guy from Cursed and that chick from Twilight in what can only be described as a throwback to the classic comedies of the 1980’s. Jesse Eisenberg, who has also starred in The Squid and […]

No Country for Old Men 3-Disc DVD Review

A little known movie called No Country for Old Men came out a couple years back, raked in a few random awards and then settled into obscurity. With few critics or audiences avidly backing the film, the movie disappeared quickly, taking with it its shoddy acting and direction. Good riddance. Alas, Miramax believes it can […]

Oscar-Nominated Doubt on DVD: A DVD Review

Doubt arrives on DVD this coming Tuesday, April 7, 2009. This chilling movie features the best collective performances of 2008 by far, and even if the movie were worse than The Love Guru, it would be worth it to see the actors involved. Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams and Viola Davis were all […]

8 Movies to See In April 2009

Wow. Does April suck or what. In preparation for the summer months to come, April sees a very small selection of films open wide – and very few of them will be worth your time of day. Here are the movies you should see in April 2009: Observe and Report From the writer and director […]

New Taking of Pelham 123 Movie Trailer

Columbia Pictures has released a new movie trailer for the upcoming Tony Scott film, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3, which stars Denzel Washington and John Travolta. The movie doesn’t really feel like an event film, but this new movie trailer makes large gains. The first trailer was OK but a little cluttered; this […]

Movie Review: Bedtime Stories DVD/Blu-Ray/Digital Combo

When I first heard about Bedtime Stories, it sounded like a disaster. You take Adam Sandler, the bane of parents everywhere for delivering inappropriate and idiotic humor to their children, and put him in a PG-rated Disney flick, thus circumcising away what makes him so popular among his fan base: I smell mega-flop. But with […]

Dear Zachary: The Best Documentary of the 21st Century?

There are entertaining documentaries, like Man on Wire. There are political documentaries, such as Nothing But the Truth. And then there are those utterly depressing documentaries that only come along once every couple of years. Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father is one of those films. Filmmaker Kurt Kuenne made this […]

Sex Drive Movie Review: The Next Animal House?

I have a new actress-crush. Her name: Amanda Crew. She plays the hot goth BFF in Sex Drive, the latest R-rated teen comedy to hit DVD. She’s the best part about the movie. Sex Drive, from upstart Summit Entertainment, came and went from theaters with little promotion or buzz, though one wonders – and by […]

The Most Memorable Amusement Park Movies

On Friday, Adventureland arrives in theaters, uniting Bella and Edward for another adventure in vampire love. Oops, wrong movie! Adventureland does star Kristin Stewart, but in place of Robert Pattison, we have the slightly less heartthrob-esque Jesse Eisenberg, and in place of vampire love, there’s… corn dog love. Yes, even though the title is completely […]

Is Duplicity Better than Ocean’s 11?

From the director of the Oscar-nominated Michael Clayton comes Duplicity, a witty romantic-comedy-espionage-thriller starring Clive Owen and Julia Roberts. Smart and fun, Duplicity works in a breezy, harmless kind of way, though those expecting the crispness, fluidity and entertainment value of Ocean’s 11 may be disappointed. Duplicity follows Ray Koval (Owen), an ex-MI6 agent who […]

Friday Box Office: Monsters vs. John Cena

Monsters vs. Aliens, the easy pick for the weekend, took in $17 million on Friday, setting itself up fora $50-55 million box office weekend. Not too bad for a less-than-stellar-looking DreamWorks Animation film. The big surprise on Friday was The Haunting of Connecticut, the rather crappy horror rip-off starring Virginia Madsen. The haunted house movie […]

DVD Review: Seven Pounds, Starring Will Smith

Will Smith is one of the most consistent box office forces there is. Even his intentionally misspelled 2007 drama The Pursuit of Happyness went on to make well over $100 million in the United States. So, the odds were good that his 2008 follow-up Seven Pounds, which is directed by the same man, Gabriele Muccino, […]
