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 […]

DVD Review: The Day the Earth Stood Still

A week from now, Jennifer Connelly and Keanu Reeves will storm onto theaters in the almost-expected remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still. The 2008 version looks to be drastically different from the 1951 classic, but that might not be that bad of an idea.Smartly, 20th Century Fox is re-releasing the original in an […]

TV DVD Review: Lost: Season 4

As an American, I have proudly watched hours upon hours of television my entire life. In fact, I’m pretty sure I was at least listening to television while still in the womb. From The Wonder Years to Darkwing Duck, from Happy Days to Mork and Mindy, from Law and Order to Matlock, I have seen […]

The Worst Comic Book Movie Adaptations

In the last few years, people have grown accustomed to superhero movies with amazing special effects, great actors and serious storylines, resulting in films that range from great (X-Men 2) to downright superb (The Dark Knight). But, for every good comic book movie, there are several bad ones, and Yahoo! has compiled a list of […]

The Dark Knight Returns to Theaters

Warner Brothers announced today that The Dark Knight, which can only be described as a complete and utter success, will be re-released to theaters on January 23, 2009, with the dual intent of cashing in just a little more on the Batman franchise and reminding Oscar voters just how damn good this movie really is. […]

Holiday Movie Guide: 15 Movies to See in December 2008

It’s already December. Can you believe it? I can’t. Since you don’t have anything better to do, you might as well go out to theaters and check out some of the exciting new movies that are being released (or have already been released). Below is my list of must-see movies for December 2008: The Curious […]

DVD Review: Prince Caspian DVD

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian rides onto DVD today, and with it a good chunk of bonus features. Prince Caspian moved the lucrative franchise out of its December time slot to May, where it stumbled mightily. A bit lost among bigger, more adult fare and lacking a major Christian holiday to play to churches, […]
