Movie Trailer Review: The Great Buck Howard

I just watched the two-and-a-half-minute movie trailer for The Great Buck Howard, which stars Colin Hanks and John Malkovich, with a guest appearance by Colin’s father, the little-known actor named Tom Hanks. The movie is about a washed-up performer who is still living in his glory years until his new, youthful manager helps get him […]

Soul Men Movie Review

Soul Men comes to DVD next Tuesday, and of three big names in the film – Bernie Mac, Samuel L. Jackson and Isaac Hayes – only Jackson lived to see this comedy released to theaters. I’m not sure that Jackson was the lucky one. After all, Jackson most likely attended the premiere, which means that […]

Go Blind With the Blindness DVD: A DVD Review

One of my most anticipated movies of 2008, Blindness is directed by Fernando Meirelles, the man behind such visually stimulating films as The Constant Gardener and City of God. Given his stunning resume, Blindness looked like a sure lock for one of the best movies of the year. Starring Mark Ruffalo and Julianne Moore, the […]

DVD Review of the Bush-Who-Is-No-More: W.

I love movies. I really love movies. I love watching them, I love playing them, and I love stroking them. Wait, what? Ignore that last part. Getting back on track, as much as I love movies, I’m really not a huge fan of bonus features. It’s not that there aren’t some really good bonus features […]

Zack and Miri Make a Porno DVD Review

It’s funny: of all the successful comedies of the year, one of the funniest, which combined the likes of Seth Rogen with the director who made his kind of comedy possible in the first place – Kevin Smith – flopped. One shouldn’t have been surprised, given that Kevin Smith has hardly been a box office […]

Superbowl Ads: Winners and Losers

First off, congrats to the Pittsburgh Steelers AND the Arizona Cardinals for offering the masses one of the best football games ever. As a Seattle Seahawks fan, it was pretty dismaying to face the reality that the team that beat us in the Superbowl a few years back was going to battle against one of […]

A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints Limited Edition DVD

Back in 2006, when A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints was first released, the movie was a surprisingly decent flick with a recognizable but not-staggering cast. Flash forward three years and the movie has changed significantly: it’s a surprisingly decent flick with an A-list cast. Back in 2006, the movie starred Robert Downey, Jr., who […]

The long-delayed Fanboys finally comes to theaters next Friday, and here are a few video clips recently provided by the studio. The first one features Kristin Bell taking her shirt off… sort of.

Mary Poppins: 45th Anniversary DVD Review

OK, I’ll admit it: I’d never seen Mary Poppins. In fact, I didn’t even know what it was about. I knew that some lady named Julie Andrews was the star – and of course I know who Dick Van Dyke is – but other than that, I heard something about it being a cheesy combination […]

The Best Actors/Male Performances of 2008

The Oscar nominations are out, but with the amount of fine performances this year, it didn’t seem right to condense things down to a top ten list. A combination of both the best leading and supporting actors, here are the best male performances of 2008: Mickey Rourke, The Wrestler Mickey Rourke and Sean Penn are […]

Dakota Fanning to be Twilight’s Jane

I’ve been on a reading tear. Since the beginning of the year, I’ve read at least five books, three of them from the hugely successful Stephenie Meyer Twilight franchise. Not having a huge respect for the Mormon religion, I was impressed with the relative depth of the first book. Having already seen the movie, it […]

The Best Action Movies of 2008

Action movies. Below are the best action movies of 2008, based on a combination of overall quality, intensity of the action and overall entertainment value. Action-comedies such as Tropic Thunder didn’t quite make the list, though Pineapple Express almost made it. Without further ado, here are the best action movies of 2008: The Dark Knight This […]

Mutant Chronicles Restricted Movie Trailer: Any Good?

I just watched The Mutant Chronicles movie trailer, and all I can say is wow. And by “wow,” I mean… meh. The Thomas Jane/Ron Perlman sci-fi action flick looks a lot like the Vin Diesel film The Chronicles of Riddick, and we all know how that worked out. I wonder how many people are going […]

The 10 Best Movies of 2008

Here are my top ten movies of 2008. This is one of the strangest lists I’ve assembled in years, as it includes a unique blend of comic book action, animated robots, a drinking beverage and a vampire – and no where to be found are the Nazis. Without further ado… The Dark Knight I am […]

Alien Dogs in Planet 51 a Riot

I just watched the teaser trailer for the upcoming movie Planet 51, assuming it was a comedy but not knowing that it was an animated flick. The CGI – and movie in general – looks somewhat generic, though not bad by any means. While the teaser trailer didn’t blow me away, I did love two […]
