Critics Calling for Heath Ledger Oscar

On January 25, 2008, shortly after Heath Ledger’s death, I conjectured on whether the actor would win an Oscar posthumously for his portrayal of the Joker in the upcoming movie The Dark Knight. The Heath Ledger Oscar post is here, and examines the chances of actors winning awards after their deaths. It’s a rare feat […]

Seattle Loses Sonics. Ban Starbucks Now.

Seattle is not a huge city. It’s no Manhattan or Los Angeles. But it’s not a small city. In fact, it’s the largest city among several states in the Northwest. In other words, it is not a team that should be without a professional basketball team. Yet, today, the city of Seattle struck a settlement […]

The New James Bond Movie Is… A Comedy???

OK, what the heck. I had been worried when Daniel Craig mentioned that they were trying to inject more humor into the James Bond franchise a few months back, but shrugged it off as silliness. After all, Casino Royale was an amazing movie, and a financially successful one to boot. It was a grittier, more […]

50 Best and Worst Twist Endings in Movies

Of course The Sixth Sense is on here. But what else?

Pretty Cool Saw V Movie Poster

I hate the Saw movies. Despite what some people think, the first one was bad and they just got worse from there. Bad acting and directing gave way to one attempt after the next to shock the audience more and more, while becoming more convoluted and cocky with each outing. The fourth Saw movie was […]

Death Race (2008) Looks As Bad As the Original

Before Wanted graced the screen last night, the movie trailer for Death Race – which has been online for a couple weeks now – reared its ugly head, and wow, does it look just as bad as the original Sylvestor Stallone movie. I never liked the original cult classic, of what little I can remember […]

Friday Box Office Results: Wall-E and Wanted Are Big

The Friday box office estimates are in for the June 27-29 weekend, giving us a hint of what the final box office numbers will be. Many box office analysts expected both the family-friendly Wall-E and the R-rated action movie Wanted to do well, but the box office weekend is shaping up to a be a […]

Guy Ritchie’s RocknRolla Movie Trailer Online

The movie trailer for Guy Ritchie’s RocknRolla is online, and the crime thriller looks a lot more like his earlier films (Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels) than his later, less desirable flicks (Swept Away and Revolver). Watch the RocknRolla movie trailer now:

New Eagle Eye Movie Trailer

Check out the new Eagle Eye movie trailer, as seen below. This movie looks pretty cool, though could be one of those films that ends up being preposterously bad if there are too many plot holes. The movie stars Shia LaBeouf, Michelle Monaghan, Rosario Dawson, Michael Chiklis, Anthony Mackie and Billy Bob Thornton, though doesn’t […]

Is The Happening the Worst Movie of 2008?

Wow. I finally watched The Happening last night, after over a week of listening to bad reviews and a warning from my brother that M. Night Shyamalan had inflicted upon audiences something worse than death. But the movie looked cool, and I was willing to look past the quasi-disappointing The Village and the downright bad […]

Weekend Box Office: Get Smart with The Love Guru

Get Smart and The Love Guru open this weekend in a rare big comedy vs. big comedy battle. Of course, it’s not going to be much of a battle. In one corner, we have Steve Carell’s Get Smart, which has looked funny from the first preview of Carell stuck in a phone booth. In the […]

Movie Trailer Review: Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008)

I, like many people, have been skeptical about the upcoming Star Wars: The Clone Wars movie. After all, it’s an animated film, and Star Wars isn’t meant to be animated, at least not on the big screen. Thankfully, the new movie trailer actually makes the movie look pretty decent. The trailer is treated no different […]

Movie Trailer Review: Elegy (2008)

The new romantic drama Elegy stars the unlikely duo of Sir Ben Kingsley and Penelope Cruz. I’m not completely sure who’s getting the better deal here, but I’m pretty sure the much-older Kingsley is getting an unfair benefit. And that’s what the movie is about. He has a perfectly fine but ultimately loveless relationship with […]

Movie Trailer Review: Punisher: War Zone

The movie trailer for Punisher: War Zone was released a few days ago. Strangely, when I went and saw The Incredible Hulk, neither it nor The Dark Knight played before it, though I’m guessing most theaters got a whiff of it. The teaser trailer is pretty good considering the quality of the movie, which looks […]

Sex and the City, a Straight Man’s View

It’s been a couple weeks since Sex and the City made its way to theaters, raking in a whole ton of money. I got invited to see the movie opening night, but opted not to stay up to 3am with a bunch of weeping, screaming women. Part of the reason, I’ll admit, is that I […]
