Disney Drops Narnia 3 Like a Bad Habit

Following the so-so box office results for The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Walt Disney had decided to pull out of distributing for the upcoming The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader. The Hollywood Reporter says, “Disney and Walden Media confirmed Tuesday that for budgetary and logistical reasons the Burbank-based studio is not […]

Seahawks Win Two in a Row! Against Bret Favre!

I’m a pretty diehard Seahawks fan, but with the way the season has turned out this year, I’m glad I only ended up going to three games this year. I went to their first win, against the St. Louis Rams, and then to a close loss against our arch rivals, the Arizona Cardinals. And I […]

DVD Review: Eagle Eye

Eagle Eye is the perfect B-grade thriller, a fast-paced, excited and well budgeted picture with quality acting and enough chaos to satisfy most fans. It is also ridiculous at times, forcing you to stretch your imagination far beyond what you expected. Still, if you accept that, the movie is pretty damn entertaining. The 2-Disc Special […]

Marketing Failure: Who Heard of Delgo?

Delgo, as many people have heard by now, is the biggest flop in cinematic history. Costing over $40 million, the animated adventure film opened on 2,160 screens… and took in $511,920 over the weekend. Total. That comes out to a whopping $237 per theater, or, if you assume that most people went and saw this […]

DVD Review: Burn After Reading (2008)

Of all the films to be released in 2008, Burn After Reading is one of the more divisive of the group. Some people loved the movie, some hated it, and a few, like me, were somewhere in the middle. It’s definitely a picture of extremes, as the humor and rather aimless story went right over […]

NBC’s Heroes Returning to Better, Simpler Times?

If you’re like me, and I’m sure the majority is, Heroes isn’t nearly as good as it was in its first season. The writing has deteriorated, the characters have become too complicated, and the stories muddled. I’m not too the point where I’d stop watching, but the thought has crossed my mind once or twice. […]

Movie Review: Van Damme’s In Hell on DVD

I received a copy of In Hell in the mail this last week, as the 2003 direct-to-DVD Jean-Claude Van Damme is being re-released in a new limited edition. Why such a film deserves a re-release only a few years later is beyond me, but then again, it gave me the opportunity to watch this incredible, […]

The Golden Globes Prove They’re Stupid

We’ve known it for years. We even talk about it: The Golden Globes are stupid. They’re like an elementary version of the Oscars, a way for lesser films to earn awards that would never win Oscars. Yes, the Golden Globes are considered a precursor to the Oscars, and often help in predicting what will be […]

Michael Crichton’s Death Kills Jurassic Park 4

Jurassic Park 4 is dead, long live Jurassic Park. With the death of popular author Michael Crichton a few weeks back, producers Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy announced that the movie, which has been in development hell for years, is officially dead. So said Kennedy: “No… I don’t know. You know, when Crichton passed away, […]

Terminator: Salvation Movie Trailer: Forgiveness for McG?

As Kirk would say, I will never forgive McG for the making of Charlie’s Angels 2. At least, I haven’t yet. Charlie’s Angels 2 was one of the worst movies ever made, highlighted by horrid special effects and painful direction. Complemented by the fact that I am repulsed by anyone who would go by the […]

Dragonball Movie Trailer Fizzles, Not Sparks

I just watched the movie trailer for Dragonball, the live-action adaptation of whatever Dragonball is (a cartoon series, I believe), and as expected, it looks pretty stupid. Despite the presence of Chow Yun-Fat, Dragonball looks like nothing more than a B-grade kung fu action film fused with cheesy special effects. I know there are some […]

Battlestar Galactica: Caprica is Going to Suck

Battlestar Galactica comes to a triumphant end in early 2009, closing out what could be the best sci-fi television series ever made. And that coming from someone who thoroughly enjoyed many of the Star Trek TV series and who loves Firefly – all 12 episodes of it. The show is a masterstroke of action, espionage, […]

Movie Review: Timecrimes/Los Cronocrímenes

I’ve just posted my movie review for Timecrimes, the Spanish time travel thriller about a man who sees a naked woman in the woods, goes to investigate, gets tricked into climbing into a machine and then, when he emerges, he finds that he has traveled back in time by a few hours. Told to stay […]

Sunshine Cleaning Movie Trailer Review

I just watched the new movie trailer for the upcoming film Sunshine Cleaning, and it looks pretty good. From the producers of Little Miss Sunshine (their next film is called The Dark in the Darkness), the movie is about two house-cleaners (Amy Adams and Emily Blunt) who decide to open their own crime scene cleaning […]

New Curious Case of Benjamin Button Video Clips

It’s buzzing with Oscar glory right now, still several weeks away from its Christmas release, but Paramount has sent me (and, assuredly, every other blogger and their mothers) several video clips from The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which stars Brad Pitt, Tilda Swinton and Cate Blanchett. The Curious Case for Benjamin Button Video Clip […]
