Angelina Jolie’s Wanted Unveils on DVD

The Angelina Jolie/James McAvoy action flick Wanted comes to DVD this Tuesday. The hit film, which also stars Morgan Freeman, is an exciting, visually refreshing picture from the director of Night Watch, who’s not exactly known for stories entirely based in reality. Bullets curve, assassins drive cars at ridiculous angles and bodies fall freely, and […]

Animated Movie Posters? Terminator Salvation Raises the Bar?

Sony Pictures has released a new, animated movie poster thanks to that fascinating technology called Adobe Flash. It’s a neat concept and worth checking out, but I hope this doesn’t become common place in movie marketing. We already are forced to plow through slow-loading, hard-to-navigation websites, and an animated Flash poster is nothing more than […]

The Longshots Movie Review and DVD Giveaway

The Longshots arrives on DVD on Tuesday, December 2nd. The movie stars Ice Cube and the girl from Akeelah and the Bee as a coach and female football quarterback respectively, who carry a rather crappy team to the playoffs. The family sports movie, directed by Fred Durst of all people, is based on a true […]

Movie Review: Sabrina Centennial Edition DVD

In my quest to watch all things Audrey Hepburn, I have moved onto Sabrina, another widely known classic. A big fan of Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Roman Holiday, I went into Sabrina, a rather silly romantic comedy, with high expectations… and unfortunately, Sabrina didn’t quite meet them. Sabrina is still a good movie, and how […]

Box Office: Twilight Bites into a $33 Million Friday

The box office pundits can stop guessing, at least somewhat. After a $7 million Friday, analysts still weren’t sure what to make of Twilight as it moved into the weekend. How many of the film’s fans flocked to the midnight showings? Would they still show up in force over the rest of the weekend? With […]

The Wrestler Trailer is Now Online

Mickey Rourke is receiving rave reviews for his performance in The Wrestler, the latest film from Darren Aronofsky. Watch the all-new movie trailer now:

DVD Review: Wall-E 3-Disc DVD

The sure-fire victor of the 2009 Academy Awards, Pixar’s Wall-E flies onto DVD this Tuesday, bringing with it one of the most ambitious, creative and visually stunning films ever made. Last year’s Oscar-winner Ratatouille was downright amazing for these same reasons (my roommate prefers the rat film), but Wall-E managed to make a likable character […]

DVD Review: Tropic Thunder 2-Disc DVD

The Ben Stiller-directed action-comedy Tropic Thunder arrives on DVD this week and is sure to be a big hit. The movie, which got off to a shockingly slow start in theaters, quickly developed into a sleeper hit, based on pretty good word of mouth and a great cast that includes Stiller, Robert Downey Jr., Nick […]

Movie Trailer Review: Star Trek (2009)

If you went ye old theatre house this weekend to see Quantum of Solace (looking at a $75 million weekend… what did I say, box office experts???), then you’ve probably seen the exciting new movie trailer for the upcoming J.J. Abrams sci-fi film Star Trek. Supposedly, the trailer is based some little known TV and […]

Box Office Predictions: James Bond in Quantum of Solace (2008)

Quantum of Solace, the new James Bond pic, opens this weekend in the United States, two weeks after it opened in other parts of the globe. The movie has already made $161 million, and is primed to crush the $40.8 million opening for Casino Royale a few years ago. As I’ve said before, I’m no […]

Is This True? Ridley Scott to Make Monopoly Game Movie?

Every once in a while, a story comes along that just leaves you scratching your head. If it had been announced by some random blog or rumor website, one could dismiss it as pure conjecture – silly conjecture at that – and go on with their lives. But the story came from The Hollywood Reporter, […]

The Dark Knight Vetoed from Oscar Consideration

Unfortunately, The Dark Knight is not going to get the chance it deserves come next year’s Oscars. Apparently, according to Variety, the executive committee of the Academy Awards has ruled that the score for the A-rated Batman film is ineligible for competition because… it has too many composers. To me, this seems like just the […]

My Own Worst Enemy Kills Itself

According to anonymous reports, NBC has canceled two of its high profile shows, Lipstick Jungle and My Own Worst Enemy. I never watched either, but I’m not at all surprised: Lipstick Jungle looked like a crappy (and presumably watered down) rip-off of Sex and the City, and My Own Worst Enemy… well, it was just […]

DVD Review: Roman Holiday Centennial Collection DVD

I’m 26 years old, which means as I watch the movies of the future, I slowly delve into the pictures of the past. A wave of classics arrived in new Centennial Edition DVD packages this week, including Roman Holiday, and it has given me the chance to watch the Gregory Peck/Audrey Hepburn film for the […]

DVD Review: Sunset Boulevard Centennial Collection DVD

An entertaining yet strangely sad classic from 1950, Sunset Boulevard is ranked #26 on IMDB’s Top 250. The movie was nominated for eight Academy Awards and won three others, including Best Writing. IMDB’s extremely high rating is a little surprising to me, but Sunset Boulevard is still a well-done and memorable picture about Hollywood, fading […]
