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 […]

The 10 Best Comedies of 2008

2008 was a good year for comedies, and this coming from a guy who rates comedies as the least desirable genre. I actually do really enjoy comedies, but I like action flicks and depressing dramas much, much more. But in the absence of really great dramas, this genre rose up to truly deliver…. In Bruges […]

I Love Armond White

Or hate him. Actually, yes, I hate him and I don’t even know him. My roommate referred me to a name today spelled as “Armond White,” having looked at the 2% of critics who said The Wrestler, one of the best movies of 2008, wasn’t worth a fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Thus, we were […]

New Movie Promo Trailer: Crank 2

Jason Statham returns in the sequel no one wanted: Crank: High Voltage. In the movie, hitman Chev Chelios’ (Statham) launches himself on an electrifying chase through Los Angeles in pursuit of the Chinese mobster who has stolen his nearly indestructible heart. How Chev comes back to life after falling out of an airplane is anyone’s […]

The Dumbest Movie Moments of 2008

Yahoo!Movies posted a great list today of the dumbest movie moments of 2008. Their #1 spot goes to the “Nuking the Fridge” moment in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which I have to admit is one of the most embarrassing and deflating moments in cinematic history. Why does Spielberg have the […]

UPS is Holding My Package Hostage!

It was Christmas last week, though one wouldn’t know it. In Seattle, we had record, if not at least near-record snowfalls over the last week and a half, essentially crippling the roads with snow and ice that most Seattle drivers have no clue how to handle. Hell, two buses nearly slid off a 50-foot drop-off […]

30 Movies to See in 2009

2009 is almost upon us, and with it comes another year of hopeful movies looking to stretch the box office, entertain audiences and, in most cases, also appeal to critics. Some will exceed expectations, and some will fail miserably. It’s impossible to tell at such an early stage, but here are 25 movies that one […]

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 […]
