Chris Columbus, how hard we fall. Since directing Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the director has provided audiences with two brain-numbing pictures: the adaptation of the musical Rent and this year’s atrocity, I Love You, Beth Cooper. Based on the novel by Larry Doyle, who subjected audiences to the Ben Stiller travesty that […]
American Pie is returning with yet another direct-to-DVD movie, this one called American Pie: The Book of Love. Eugene Levy once again shows up to make some money. The movie arrives on DVD and Blu-Ray just in time for Christmas, on December 22, 2009. They just keep getting better and better, don’t they?
John Goodman are back and Billy Crystal are back… on Blu-Ray! OK, so Monsters, Inc.‘s release on Blu-Ray isn’t that exciting since we’ve now determined that it really isn’t worth upgrading from DVD to Blu-Ray, but at least be excited that the beloved Disney-Pixar movie now comes with some great new special features. And some […]
It was a relatively slow news week in the world of movies, but I managed to pull a few nuggets from the last week. Here they are: Sacha Boren Cohen has started his own production company to do two more films, but they won’t be in the style of Borat and Bruno. After Bruno, all […]
From Grant Heslov, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s awesome sidekick in True Lies and yes, also George Clooney’s producing and writing collaborator (on such films as Leatherheads and Good Night and Good Luck) comes The Men Who Stare At Goats, which stars none other than Clooney as the psychic soldier Lynn Cassady. View this The Men Who Stare […]
Here’s a recap of the latest movie news from the last week: Robert Zemeckis announced that a script, by the original writers, is in the works for Roger Rabbit 2. Ironically, a movie that stars a cartoon may be his first movie in a long while to feature live-action actors. Eduardo Sanchez announced some troubling […]
Just when you thought Battlestar Galactica was over, it starts all over again with Battlestar Galactica: The Plan, which looks back at the nuclear assault on Caprica and the months that followed from the Cylons’ point of view. The return to the beloved series, however, is not as incredible as you’d expect.
Ellie, Diego, John Leguizamo, Manny and the rest are back in Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, but hold the celebration: the movie is the weakest of the franchise, and that’s saying something when the franchise has never been very good to begin with. I’ve never understood why the Ice Age movies have been so […]
It’s already the end of October, which means that the studio films aiming for Oscar glory are beginning to trickle into theaters. The first major film of the season to have much promise is Amelia, about the short-lived life of famous female pilot Amelia Earhart. The tragic tale seemed destined for greatness, if only for […]
Movie critics the world over are rejoicing this weekend as audiences rejected the sixth Saw film, which, as many agree, are six films too many. With weekend box office tallies in, Saw VI earned less than $15 million in theaters, half of what Saw V opened to and even less than the original Saw‘s entry.
As always, there has been a fair amount of movie news over the last week. Here’s the good stuff: Paranormal Activity beat out Saw VI at Friday’s box office. Saw‘s box office reign may be over, as it is likely to take in under $20 million this weekend (compared to last year’s $30+ million opening). […]
Battlestar Galactica may be done, but is it really? Battlestar Galactica: The Plan debuts on Blu-Ray and DVD on October 27 (we’re giving away a copy here), Caprica arrives early next year, and BSG hotties Tricia Helfer and Grace Park are on the cover of Maxim, looking hotter than ever. Here are some pics from […]
A lot of things happen in a week, most of them boring. Here are ten things that aren’t: Sam Raimi acknowledges and agrees with criticism toward Spider-Man 3. Says he’s “to get back to the basics” with Spider-Man 4 (set to be released in 2011) Che, which was originally released in December 2008, is finally […]
In American Violet, Nicole Beharie makes a strong debut as Dee Roberts, an African-American single mother of four who finds her life turned upside down when she is falsely arrested for selling crack cocaine. After the chief D.A. offers her a plea deal in exchange for no jail time – versus a long, expensive court […]
