Synecdoche, New York Movie Review

Charlie Kaufman is undoubtedly one of the most creative minds at work today, as exemplified by such multilayered films as Adaptation, Being John Malkovich and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Those titles are some of the most unique properties released in the last ten years, so it’s a bit surprising that his directorial debut, […]

DVD Review: Caprica Pilot Episode

Battlestar Galactica is done, but Caprica is just beginning. Sci-Fi Channel hopes fans acknowledge that transition and stick around because one is just like the other, right? Oh, and for the fact that the channel doesn’t have much else to offer. Caprica is set 50 years before BSG on Caprica, which in only a few […]

DVD Review: The Wrestler

Mickey Rourke and The Wrestler arrive on DVD this Tuesday, April 21, 2009. Rourke, easily considered the biggest comeback kid of 2008 – if not the 21st century – went from career obscurity to major Oscar contender overnight with his tragic performance as an aging professional wrestler in Darren Aronofsky’s masterpiece. The Wrestler was denied […]

Monsters vs. Aliens Movie Review: 3D Over Quality?

DreamWorks Animation’s latest, Monsters vs. Aliens, is an attempt to combine the world of Monsters, Inc. and The Incredibles to make an action-packed comedy where… monsters battle aliens. The movie is also in 3D, and thank God for that; its visuals are its saving grace. In Monsters vs. Aliens, a planet explodes, sending a meteorite […]

Parks and Recreation Bringing Down The Office

Amy Poehler’s Parks and Recreation debuted on NBC between two episodes of The Office last week, and had its second episode last night. The comedy runs in the vein of The Office, in that it’s about a manager who is so not-self-aware in regards to her job that she doesn’t realize how idiotic and stupid […]

Has Heroes Found Salvation?

Back in December, we reported that Bryan Fuller was returning to Heroes after he had moved on to do the two-season Pushing Daisies. Fuller was one of the original masterminds of the first season, which was so excellent in so many ways. Though no one could necessarily attribute the show’s sudden decline to Fuller’s absence, […]

DVD Review: The Day the Earth Stood Still (2008)

2008’s remake of the science-fiction classic The Day the Earth Stood Still was not, when all things were said and done, a box office failure, but Fox had to be disappointed with its lackluster opening weekend, lukewarm critical reception and quick fade from theaters. The overall so-so response sums up the movie pretty well. The […]

Mike Judge’s Extract Movie Trailer!

Mike Judge is behind a little movie you may have heard of called Office Space, which can only be described as one of the biggest cult film I can imagine. If you work in an office, you’ve probably seen, liked and related to the movie. Needless to say, Mike Judge has some comedic clout…

New The Ugly Truth Movie Trailer

A new The Ugly Truth movie trailer debuted today, and I have to admit: this is one romantic comedy I actually want to see. Sure, it looks pretty routine in general (who bets that Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler don’t hook up in the end), but the fact that Butler plays a chauvinistic talk show […]

The Next 2001? Watch the Moon Movie Trailer

Sam Rockwell is a good, underrated actor, and he’s going to have a chance to flex his acting muscles in Moon, where he effectively plays the only real character in the entire movie. Rockwell plays an astronaut who has been living alone on the moon for three years. Only weeks from returning home, however, he […]

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 […]
