Movie Review: My Best Friend’s Girl

My Best Friend’s Girl arrives on DVD on January 13th, 2009. Here’s my movie review for the romantic comedy: Dane Cook continues his quest to prove he’s unfunny in My Best Friend’s Girl, a less-crude version of Good Luck Chuck with only a slightly altered premise. In the movie, Cook plays a guy named Tank, […]

Swing Vote (2008) Movie Review

Swing Vote will be released on DVD on January 13, 2009. Here is my Swing Vote movie review: Poor Kevin Costner. Once a box office star, he is now the anti-star, and for no real apparent reason. He’s an enjoyable actor, and if you look at his resume, he has far more good films than […]

Underworld/Underworld Revolution Double Feature DVD Review

Kate Beckinsale. Kate Beckinsale in tight, black leather. Kate Beckinsale sucking blood and making nooky with a hairy vampire. This stuff sells tickets, folks. The first Underworld is the perfect example of glitz over substance, but a fast-paced storyline, lots of action, R-rated gore and yes, Kate Beckinsale in black leather, made it a worthwhile […]

DVD Review: Jack Bauer Gets Trapped in Mirrors

Fox’s hit TV show 24 starts today, January 11th, so it’s no surprise that its main character, Jack Bauer, is getting three straight days of action. Two hours of 24 on Sunday, two more hours on Monday, and then, on Tuesday, Kiefer Sutherland’s horror movie Mirrors arrives on DVD. Mirrors is a creepy movie, for […]

Friday Box Office: Gran Torino Takes Off

Kudos to Clint Eastwood: he is poised for his best opening weekend of his career. The grisly actor-director, who has suggested this may be his last performance in front of the camera, sure knows how to go out on top if that’s the case. According to SlashFilm, Gran Torino made $10 million on Friday alone, […]

Movie Review: My Blood Valentine Rips Out the Heart

This February, audiences will be greeted to an all-new 3D adventure in the form of My Bloody Valentine 3D, a remake of the 1981 horror film My Bloody Valentine, which is about a crazy miner who goes around murdering people. In anticipation of the new 3D film, it’s no surprise that Paramount and Lionsgate have […]

Does Audrey Hepburn Have a Funny Face?

In my continued case to see all things Audrey Hepburn, I popped Funny Face into my DVD player today. Thankfully, Paramount Pictures has been releasing Hepburn films over the last few months under its Centennial Edition banner, and Funny Face is the latest to be re-released. Having just watched Sabrina, Roman Holiday and, of course, […]

Study: Romantic Comedies Will Ruin Your Love Life

Guys, I know what you’re thinking. You take your girl to a romantic comedy, she is happy, you suffer only a little bit, and it pays off later in the evening. That’s all fine and good. But if you’re serious about the girl – or ladies, if you’re serious about the man (I suppose this […]

Warner Brothers Drops All DC Comic Movies

OK, so it’s not as drastic as the title sounds, but what is the deal with Warner Brothers all of a sudden? There is some major mismanagement going on with this company. The Dark Knight is a major success, basically heralding in a new era of darker, more compelling comic book movie adaptations. Not too […]

First Transformers 2 Pictures and Poster!

Yahoo! Movies has posted the first official pictures from Transformers 2, otherwise known as Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. The movie stars Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox as they reprise their role to fight against mean robots. It’s basically a what-if-Wall-E-went-bad scenario. Transformers 2 is once again directed by Michael Bay.You can check out the […]

Street Fighter Movie Trailer Ho-Hum

Below, watch the movie trailer for the upcoming action film Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, which comes to theaters this February. The trailer is rather unimpressive, though it wisely attempts to avoid looking like a video game adaptation as much it can. The cast is recognizable but not filled with A-listers by any mean, […]

DVD Review: Pineapple Express Hits a High

The funny Judd Apatow action-comedy Pineapple Express arrives on DVD this Tuesday, and comes packed with more than just a dime bag of bonus features. Seth Rogen and James Franco star as two potheads who become involved in a murder plot, forcing them to go on the run and, eventually, to attack the drugdealers who […]

Frost/Nixon Not as Good as the Critics Claim

December is the month when the really good films come to theaters. It’s a known fact, because all of these movies want to be known and on voters’ minds when Oscar ballots go out in January. And while you can’t always trust the critics for 11 months out of the year when it comes to […]

DVD Review: Battlestar Galactica: Season 4.0

On January 16th, Battlestar Galactica returns with its final season, the end of a glorious run. BSG is easily one of the best sci-fi shows ever made, and one of the best dramas, too. It’s had its ups and downs, of course, but even it’s worst episode is better than the best episodes of some […]

The Worst Comedies of 2008

“Worst movies of XXXX” are always hard to do because, naturally, one tends to avoid the really crappy movies. But for someone like me, who does tend to watch more movies than anyone should in their right mind, a few bad movies slip through… sometimes by surprise (Son of Rambow), and sometimes out of utter […]
