Is the American Gangster DVD Worth the Money?

American Gangster, the well-received cop/gangster movie starring Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe, is now out on DVD. The movie is pretty good, though I’d say it’s a bit overrated. The pacing could have been a little better, and American Gangster definitely doesn’t compare to any Scorcese gangster flick (and it has been compared to those […]

Heath Ledger Gets Three Actors to Play Him in Imaginarium

Heath Ledger’s final film, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, has been in a state of limbo ever since the actor’s death, but things are back on track with the announcement that three actors will be used to play Heath Ledger’s character. Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell will replace Ledger as the character is […]

Awesome Baseball Prank: Kyle Kendrick Traded to Japan… Or Not

I woke up this morning to see this YouTube video featured on the Yahoo! homepage… announcing Kyle Kendrick had been traded to Japan. Of course, he hadn’t actually been traded to Japan, just that prankster Brett Meyers had collaborated with manager Charlie Manuel, several other players on the team and even the press to put […]

2008 Oscar Analysis: Best Supporting Actress

Is there any question that Cate Blanchett is going to win an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress at the 2008 Academy Awards? The actress is by far and away the most powerful person in the category, and her performance the most memorable. Hell, Cate Blanchett is the only reason people went to go see I’m […]

How Good is the Movie Jumper (2008)? (A Movie Review)

I just watched Jumper early this afternoon, despite it being a fabulous day outside. Relatively warm with few clouds in the sky, it was a great day to play in the park, go for a jog, or at least watch beautiful women jogging. Instead, I opted to go and sit with my male roommate in […]

Arthur and the Vengeance of Maltazard Movie Poster

IMP just posted the movie poster for the upcoming movie Arthur and the Vengeance of Maltazard, which is coming to theaters in 2009. I hadn’t heard of the film before today, but certainly found the movie poster to be intriguing. Arthur and the Vengeance of Maltazard is written and directed by Luc Besson, and in […]

Is The Bucket List (2007) as Bad as Movie Critics Say?

I just watched The Bucket List, nearly two months after it was originally released in theaters. The Jack Nicholson/Morgan Freeman death comedy didn’t get very good reviews – only 42% fresh at Rotten Tomatoes – and as such as I had relegated to this to the rental pile. However, on a cold Saturday night, one […]

2008 Academy Award Analysis: Best Animated Picture

Which movie will win the Oscar for Best Animated Picture at 2008′s Academy Award show? The nominations are three: Persepolis Ratatouille Surf’s Up As people have surmised from my other posts, Ratatouille is my easy pick for Best Animated Picture. The movie (temporarily) showed up on my Top Ten Movies of 2007, was one of […]

Friday Box Office: Jumper Jumps, Definitely, Maybe Slumps

The Friday box office results for the February 15-17 weekend (or for the February 14 to February 18 Valentine’s Day to President’s Day weekend) are here, and they imply a pretty impressive turnout for several new and returning films. The Hayden Christensen-starring sci-fi thriller Jumper benefited from a lack of action films and a slick-looking […]

The Happening (2008) Trailer and Trailer Review

The teaser trailer for M. Night Shyalaman’s upcoming movie The Happening is online now. The movie looks pretty good, though I am skeptical after Shyalaman’s last two films (The Village and The Lady in the Water). Lady in the Water was particularly bad, while The Village just failed to live up to expectations set by […]

Indiana Jones 4 Teaser Trailer Review

The teaser trailer for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is now online, as I’m sure you know. Easily one of the most anticipated sequel of all times, the fourth Indiana Jones returns Harrison Ford to what is arguably his most memorable role (or is that Han Solo?). Karen Allen also returns, […]

DVD Review: Lake Placid 2 Unrated

Why do I subject myself to watching movies like this? Lake Placid 2: Unrated, a direct-to-DVD horror movie release, was just asking to be bad, and guess what? It is bad. Really bad. I have to admit that I sort of liked the original Lake Placid, starring Bill Pullman. It was cheesy and not the […]

Academy Award Analysis: Best Visual Effects Oscar 2008

With the Oscars fast approaching, I figured I’d better start writing about my Oscar picks and predictions. I’ll start with one of the easier categories, the Best Visual Effects category. For the 2008 Academy Awards, three movies are nominated: Transformers If this one doesn’t win, I’ll shoot someone. Or I’ll punch a pillow. Or I’ll […]

Networks Announce Return of TV Shows, Post-Writer’s Strike

The writer’s strike is over, and all I can say is… thank you Lord! As a result, the major networks have started to release press releases detailing what to expect over the last couple of months. Many people feared that TV shows would be done for the season, but apparently the networks were more worried… […]

Werewolves Cry Foul in X-Files 2?

I just read this over at MovieWeb… Apparently, the werewolf rumor revolving around some “leaked” pictures from The X-Files 2, is false. The source in the article is said to be Gil Brooks, and when asked about the rumor, this was the response: After chuckling a bit, he said that Chris Carter knows what he’s […]
