Moving, Computer Problems and Spider Bites

What a wonderful month September has been. I say that with all the enthusiasm, exciting and sincerity I can muster. There have been successes. At work (no, not FilmJabber, but real work), I helped launch a new product and get a partnership off the ground. But the weeks leading up to it were busy. Real […]

Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) Movie Reviews and Recap

Robert Bell, who shares his movie reviews on FilmJabber and who is also based in Toronto, somehow was admitted into the Toronto International Film Festival (known as TIFF) despite the chaos he caused last year. OK, he actually didn’t cause any commotion last year (that I know of), but regardless, he has weighed in on […]

Movie Trailer Review: Milk (2008)

The movie trailer for Gus Van Sant’s Milk is online, and it looks like we could have an outside Oscar contender on our hands. The movie stars Sean Penn as the first openly gay elected official in – you guessed it – San Francisco and looks to have the right combination of grit, power and […]

Zack and Miri Make a Porno Unrated Poster

Have you guys seen the new movie poster for the upcoming Seth Rogen/Elizabeth Banks movie Zack and Miri Make a Porno? Written and directed by Kevin Smith, the comedy has been skirting the MPAA’s limits for quite some time. First the movie was nailed with an NC-17 rating, but who can blame the MPAA? After […]

Seahawks Look More Like Mariners in Opener

The Seattle Seahawks. Once again expected to win the NFC West and go to the playoffs for Mike Holmgren’s last season. Seattle sports fans have anticipated the beginning of football season for months, not because the Seahawks have consistently been our sole quality franchise over the last five or so years, but because we’ve already […]

Tommy Lee Jones Sues Over No Country for Old Men

It was announced today that Tommy Lee Jones, who, ultimately, turned out to be a completely useless character in No Country for Old Men, is suing Paramount Pictures, the makers of No Country for Old Men, for over $10 million dollars from the film. Jones is asking for “significant box-office bonuses” and other compensation he […]

Child’s Play 20th Birthday Edition DVD Review

I just finished watching Child’s Play, as the new Chucky’s 20th Birthday Edition arrives on DVD September 9th. While the franchise has digressed into more humorous, satirical stories over the years, it’s amazing to see just how creepy and gritty the original was. As everyone knows by now, Child’s Play is about a serial killer […]

Transporter 3 Looks the Same… And Knows It

Having just watched the movie trailer for Transporter 3, I’m quite amused by how cocky the B-grade Jason Statham franchise has become. The studio seems to be taking the film for granted, as it blatantly markets that the film is about the same as the last two. Of course, they’ve thrown in a Crank twist […]

Shouldn’t Passengers Be a TV Movie?

The movie trailer for the upcoming Anne Hathaway flick Passengers is now online, giving us a look at the increasingly sexy Hathaway as a federal psychologist who is assigned to work with the only ten survivors of a fiery jetliner crash. While most of the passengers show the typical signs of post traumatic stress, one […]

10 Movies to See in September 2008

It’s September, which means that the summer movie season is officially over and the crap of Hollywood can make it to the big screen. September is historically a bad month for movies, as kids return to school, vacations end and people scramble for the remnants of good weather. This is also the perfect time for […]

DVD Review: The Office: Season Four

It’s almost September, which means that network television is returning to us once again. The fifth season of The Office premieres on September 25th, which means that Season Four is coming to DVD… on September 2nd, to be precise. The Office: Season Four starts off where Season Three left off – surprise, surprise – with […]

One of the Best Books Ever Becoming a Movie

Another one of Chuck Palahniuk’s books is being turned into a movie, and the world will be better for it. Assuming they do it right, of course. Palahniuk has Choke, starring Sam Rockwell, coming to theaters this fall, but the author with the name that no one quite knows how to pronounce is best known […]

Big Trouble in Little Twilight… Movie?

It may be nothing… or it may be something. Twilight, only a couple months before its release, has returned some of its actors to shooting new scenes. Peter Facinelli (Carlisle Cullen in the movie) told MTV that there’s nothing wrong with the current film, but that executives were so delighted with the wrapped film that […]

Movie Update: The Darker Side of Superman

Superman is going to get just a little bit darker, according to Warner Brothers president Jeff Robinov, and will completely ignore the recent Brian Singer movie. Is that good or bad news? I think good. As most of you know, I prefer something a little darker and edgier over lighter and goofier, which is the […]

Heroes: Season 2 DVD Review

Heroes: Season Three is almost here, which means Season Two is coming to DVD. The four-disc set contains the shortened, 11-episode season, complete with time traveling, viruses, wedding massacres and more. It’s no question that most Heroes fans will scoop this DVD set up despite what my Bible-like words say below, but what about those […]
