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, […]

The Haunting in Connecticut Movie Review

At some point in our lives, we all reach a split in the road. These are the decisions that shape us, that define our futures. I reached such a split tonight. On the one side of the gaping four-story mall promenade, a line for a free screening of Adventureland. On the other, The Haunting in […]

Movie Review: Marley & Me, Now on DVD

Owen Wilson + Jennifer Aniston + cute dog = blockbuster. Marley & Me comes to DVD on March 31, allowing people like me who passed on the film during its theatrical run to take a peek at the surprisingly heartwarming dog film. Marley & Me is not at all what I expected. Based on the […]

DVD Review: Slumdog Millionairre

The Best Picture of 2008, at least according to some unnamed Academy, arrives on DVD and Blu-Ray on March 31, 2009 – and is sure to be as big of a hit as it was in theaters. While I would argue that Fox’s decision to release Slumdog Millionaire on DVD while it is still going […]

First Caprica Video Clips!

Battlestar Galactica may be over, but Caprica is just beginning. The Sci-Fi Channel, soon to be called SyFy (who the hell thought of that stupid idea?), is releasing the pilot on April 21, 2009 – the show will officially premiere in 2010.

DVD Review: The Odd Couple Centennial Collection DVD

One of the greatest – or oddest – on-screen couples of all time returns to DVD in a Centennial Collection edition. Yes, it’s Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon, and they are The Odd Couple. In The Odd Couple, Lemmon plays Felix Ungar, a man who just been kicked by his wife. Left to fend for […]

DVD Review: To Catch a Thief Centennial Collection DVD

Cary Grant and Grace Kelly star in the French Riviera thriller To Catch a Thief, an Alfred Hitchcock classic. The movie is being released by Paramount in an all-new DVD Centennial Collection on March 24, 2009. To Catch a Thief is about a retired jewel thief named John Robie who was once known as “The […]

Sorority Row (2009) Movie Trailer

Ah, the good old B-grade horror movie. Sort of. In Sorority Row, a boyfriend cheats on a sorority girl. To get back at him, the sorority pulls a major prank on him – by tricking him into thinking that he’s killed one of the girls. Unfortunately, when they go to dispose of “the body,” he […]

DVD Review: Quantum of Solace DVD

The hit James Bond action flick Quantum of Solace speeds its way onto DVD and Blu-Ray this coming Tuesday, March 24, 2009 in a two-disc special edition. The follow-up to the immensely popular reboot Casino Royale finds us with a new director, an angrier Bond and of course a new set of Bond girls, and […]

New Sin Nombre Video Clips

Check out these new video clips from the upcoming thriller Sin Nombre, which comes to select theaters this Friday, March 20, 2009. Watch them now: Sin Nombre Clip: I’m Going With You Sin Nombre Clip: Ever Been On One Of Those

The Merry Gentleman Movie Trailer

A movie trailer for the new Michael Keaton movie,The Merry Gentleman, is now online, and it looks… meh. It’s good to see Keaton back at it, but the trailer reveals little as to what kind of movie this is going to be. A hit man film? I doubt it. A drama? Maybe, but not a […]

Sam Mendes’ Away We Go Movie Trailer

Watch the funny new movie trailer for Away We Go, from director Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Road to Perdition, Revolutionary Road). The film is a notable change from Mendes’ other bodies of work as it is, in fact, a comedy and presumably doesn’t include one of the main characters dying at the end. Watch the […]

Who’s Watching the Watchmen? No One

As expected, Watchmen took a nosedive in its second weekend – taking in an estimated $18 million, 67% than last week. After ten days, it has made $85 million against a budget of $130-150 million, which means that it isn’t going to make back its production budget in theaters. Considering all the money that went […]

Stephen King’s It To Be Remade

A horror “movie” that really does deserve to be remade is in fact being remade, says The Hollywood Reporter. Stephen King’s “It,” which was originally adapted as a television mini-series, is getting an upgrade thanks to Warner Brothers. While the mini-series feels a bit dated now, I was pretty young when I first saw it… […]
