Contest Update: Golden Compass and Summer Movie Survey

Amidst hangovers, bad weather and way too much television, I’ve caught up on some of the contest and giveaway maintenance for FilmJabber, which, I will admit, is the least exciting part of running a successful movie website. While I am happy to give out DVDs and other prizes to so many people, packaging, stamping and […]

10 Movies to Watch on DVD This Week (June 9 – 16, 2008)

With not a lot of movies out in theaters right now (there are some good ones, but with only one to two big release coming out a weekend, it’s pretty easy to keep on top of the films), it’s a good time to get caught up on some recently released DVDs. But what to see? […]

Friday Box Office: Kung Fu Panda and Zohan Box Office Results

Yesterday, box office predictions had Kung Fu Panda expected to make in the low-to-mid fifties and You Don’t Mess With the Zohan making around $32 million. Those weekend box office predictions were way off. The Jack Black family film Kung Fu Panda, the first big animated movie of the year, earned $20.3 million on Friday […]

Lofa Tatupu: Shame On You for Your DUI

As a Seattle Seahawks fan, I am by nature a Lofa Tatupu fan. The young, under-sized linebacker has given a boost to the defense and has gone to the Pro Bowl all three years of his short career. In the offseason, Tatupu signed a new $42 million contract with the Seahawks. So, I was saddened […]

Zohan Vs. Panda Box Office Predictions

Two big films open this weekend, both looking at diametrically different audiences. In one corner, we have You Don’t Mess with the Zohan, the Adam Sandler comedy almost guaranteed to capture a good chunk of the lucrative teenage fan base, and in the other, Kung Fu Panda, the first major animated film of the year. […]

Indiana Jones: The Real Crystal Skull

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull may have been a bit cheesy, but the movie is based on a real legend. John Trybus from Archaeology Magazine notified me a few weeks ago about a new section on their website devoted to Indiana Jones, and there’s an interesting article about the “real” crystal […]

Young People Fucking Movie Review

Review by Robert Bell (A-) Featuring clever and natural dialogue that is anchored by uniformly impressive performances from the young (mostly) Canadian cast, Young People F*cking is a refreshingly real sex comedy sure to be a cult favourite with many. What makes YPF stand out from the endless parade of soulless sex romps are the […]

New English-Language X-Files 2 Movie Trailer

After complaining about the lack of a really good English-language movie trailer, the English-language version of the Russian X-Files: I Want to Believe movie trailer has popped online over at YouTube. Now that the trailer’s in English, we can actually get a few clues about the plot – but still, Carter and 20th Century Fox […]

Control Movie Review – Now on DVD

Check out my Control movie review, which I just posted online last night. The movie is about Ian Curtis, the lead singer of the 1970’s rock band Joy Division. The movie arrives on DVD today, June 3, 2008. Filmed in black and white (well, actually, color and then converted to B&W) – Control is pretty […]

Rambo Rocks… But Does His New DVD?

The new Rambo movie pretty much kicks ass. Released in early 2008, the movie will certainly be the goriest movie of the year, as Sylvestor Stallone, in an unlikely comeback, has directed the film that averages over two deaths a minute. Beyond the quantity of deaths, the quality is amazing – people are torn apart […]

Where is the X-Files Movie Promotion?

The X-Files: I Want to Believe is coming to theaters on July 25, less than two months away. The movie is arguably the biggest movie on 20th Century Fox’s roster for 2008, and if not at least in the top three behind The Day the Earth Stood Still and The Happening. The X-Files 2 has […]

The Red Violin: The Meridian Collection DVD Review

It had been almost ten years since I watched The Red Violin, a touching and engaging drama where the main character is… a violin. No, it’s not just any violin, but an extremely rare violin fashioned to perfection, painted red and a survivor of several centuries worth of owners. The movie, directed and co-written by […]

Elizabeth Berkley Joins Donnie Darko 2

Those of you who thought that perhaps – just perhaps – that the production of S. Darko (also known as Donnie Darko 2) was just some bad rumor will be troubled to hear that casting is indeed going forward. Whereas the first movie starred practically unknown Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, the casting has gone the […]

R-Rated Zack and Miri Make a Porno Trailer

Watch the funny new R-rated “teaser trailer” for Zack and Miri Make a Porno, the new Kevin Smith movie coming to theaters this October. The video isn’t as much an actual teaser trailer but a series of clips of Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks attempting to cast their porno. Warning: there are swear words, so […]

Watch the Burn After Reading Red Band Trailer

The Red Band trailer for the upcoming Coen Brothers movie Burn After Reading went online today over at Apple.com. It is definitely not along the same vein as Joel and Ethan Coen’s last film, No Country for Old Men, but still looks pretty good. Here’s how the studio describes the movie, which is set to […]
