The Boy in the Striped Pajamas Movie Review

Nazi movies were popular among filmmakers in the latter half of 2008, but several flew in under the radar. One such film was The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, a movie that is not a biopic about Michael Jackson but about two young boys who become friends, despite one being the son of a soldier […]

Adam Kicks Ass on American Idol

OK, I just banged my knee on my desk. For the second time tonight. My already injured knee. It hurts big time.Just wanted to say that – it has nothing to do with this article. Anyway… I rarely comment on American Idol on this blog, typically because there are so many other blogs devoted to […]

Role Models Unrated Edition DVD Review

If you missed Role Models in theaters… what the hell is wrong with you? The Paul Rudd/Seann William Scott comedy is one of the funniest of 2008, as long as you like Judd Apatow kind of humor. Apatow, by the way, is not involved in this movie, but McLovin’ from Superbad is. Oh, and Elizabeth […]

DVD Review: Primal Fear Hard Evidence Edition

Primal Fear is one of the best courtroom dramas in the history of cinema. Not only does it feature great performances by Richard Gere and Laura Linney, but it also marks the debut of a talented young man named Edward Norton – some of you may know him. His startling performance earned him an Oscar […]

Watch the New Star Trek Movie Trailer!

The latest Star Trek movie trailer is online, and you can watch it right here. This reimagining of the franchise definitely looks more serious and dramatic than past incarnations, but also looks to up the ante on the action as well. This movie trailer didn’t completely blow me away, but Star Trek remains one of […]

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 […]
