13 Ways to Get Heroes Back on Track

Normally, the announcement of a fourth season of a popular television series would be grounds for celebrations, but one has to wonder how many fans are saying enough is enough already. Heroes, as everyone who is actually reading this post knows, had an incredible first season that gave NBC a much-needed hit, made “Save the […]

Odette Yustman and Amber Heard Make Out

They make out with some cash, that is. The Hollywood Reporter is saying that sexy starlets Odette Yustman and Amber Heard will star in the remake of a 1970 British thriller. The film, And Soon the Darkness, is set in Argentina – where it will be filmed – and follows “two girls from America who […]

The Haunting in Connecticut Moving Poster

Here’s a disturbing new marketing trend: the motion poster. Started by the smart folks in charge of marketing Terminator Salvation, the motion poster fad has expanded to the upcoming horror film The Haunting in Connecticut. The movie stars Virginia Madsen and looks pretty much like The Amityville Horror, but more like the creepy original than […]

Watch the Pandorum Movie Trailer

The movie trailer for Pandorum is now online. The Dennis Quaid-starring movie comes to theaters on September 4 (you know it must be good!), and is described as: From the creators of the Resident Evil film franchise comes Pandorum, a terrifying thriller in which two crew members wake up on an abandoned spacecraft with no idea who they are, […]

The 15 Best Actresses of 2008

Time and time again, we hear that actresses have it much harder when it comes to finding good parts in Hollywood. It’s true, as year after year I usually have to scrounge to find truly stand-out actresses. This year, for whatever reason, it was not difficult at all. Funny enough, some big names like Penelope […]

23 Overlooked Movies of 2008

Every year, plenty of movies come and go with audiences ignoring them and/or critics bashing them. Many of these films deserve the fate bequeathed upon them, but there are others that leave the filmmakers scratching their heads or drinking away their sorrows in some lonely tavern only to wake up the next morning to find […]

The Top 10 Movie Food Moments

Stefanie over at Endless Simmer sent me a link to a blog post on her site about the top 10 movie food moments of all time. It’s a clever way to take advantage of the upcoming Oscars show by a site that generally has nothing to do with movies. I don’t necessarily agree with all […]

Battle for Terra the Next Delgo?

Okay, to compare Battle for Terra to Delgo, the biggest box office flop of all time, is unfair. Unlike Delgo, Battle for Terra has a major distributor (Lionsgate), has pretty good special effects and, most importantly, a marketing campaign. I just received my first marketing pitch today. Unfortunately, the Battle for Terra movie trailer leaves […]

The Worst Movies of 2008

I love a good movie as much as the next person. In fact, my favorite hobby hinges on the fact that there are good movies out there. But, as a self-proclaimed critic, the best movies for writing reviews are the bad ones. What can one say about Schindler’s List without going into a fluffy tirade […]

Movie Review: Oscar-Nominated New Boy

The 2009 Academy Awards debut next Sunday, and with it awards for all those short movies that no one has ever seen or heard about. One such live-action short nominated for an Oscar is New Boy, Ireland’s 11-minute entry written and directed by Steph Green. I normally don’t review short films, yet at the same […]

Friday the 13th Scares up $42 Million

The franchise that never dies has just financed an additional ten films with a three-day opening weekend slaughter of $42 million, leading a pack of other box office successes. The entertaining reboot of Friday the 13th, which went back to roots and offered fans and non-fans – like me – alike enough murders and thrills […]

DVD Review of Choke

Choke arrives on DVD on Tuesday, February 17. Though the movie is from writer Chuck Palahnuik, who is best known for Fight Club, this movie isn’t anything that classic, and as such, fans may be disappointed. Nevertheless, for what it is, it works, offering some entertaining dark comedy about sex addicts and a delusional mother. […]

The Twilight Series is No Harry Potter

I watched Twilight when it came to theaters. It was surprisingly pretty good, even though it was focused more on the hormones of a teenage girl than on anything more macro such as good versus evil or protagonist versus antagonist (though one would argue that the complexities of a woman cannot be topped). Following that, […]

Atheists Rejoice: Religulous is Coming to DVD

Loyal readers should know that I’m an atheist. And as an atheist, I’m a big fan of Bill Maher’s documentary Religulous. It’s not that I think the movie is an incredible documentary that will convert believers – after all, believers wouldn’t come within ten feet of this movie – but it makes some pretty valid […]

Friday the 13th Movie Reviews

The new Friday the 13th movie comes to theaters this Friday, just in time for Valentine’s Day. From the director of the surprisingly good Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, the movie is destined to be the best of the franchise, even if by default. After all, let’s face it: the Friday the 13th series is terrible. […]
