The Best Action Movies of 2007: A Top Ten List

Comedies can win Oscars, or at least Golden Globes. Foreign films get their own category. So, aside from family films, the one genre that never gets much recognition other than through box office dollars is the action movie genre. Action films have become blurred with thrillers recently, as Hollywood has leaned more toward serious, realistic […]

20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2008: Will These Be the Best Movies of 2008?

Has anyone realized that 2008 has just as many big movies, if not more big movies, than 2007 did? We get Batman, Bond, Harry, Indy, Kirk, Rambo and Mulder over the span of approximately 180 days, and those are only a fraction of the cool-looking movies coming out this year. Of course, the most anticipated […]

Best Movies of 2007 List Updated!

Just so everyone knows, I updated my Top Ten Movies of 2007 List. I forgot to put Once on the list, and if you’ve seen Once, you know that’s a movie that deserves to be recognized. The movie, about a street musician and an immigrant who strike up a relationship to work on producing an […]

Academy Award Nominations and Picks – Who Will Win at the Oscars?

The Oscars are almost upon us! Sure, the writer’s strike may destroy things, but I’m pretty sure everything will be resolved before February 24th, 2008. Anyway, the Academy Award nominations for 2007 movies were released yesterday, and today I re-launched my Oscar database with all nominees and winners for years 2004 through 2006, and the […]

Should Roman Polanski Be Forgiven for Sex with a Minor?

As many people know, Roman Polanski is not allowed to return to the United States or travel to countries that have an extradition treaty with the U.S. (like Great Britain) due to his conviction of “engaging in unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor” in the late 1970’s. With a new movie called Roman Polanski: Wanted […]

Will Heath Ledger’s Death Affect The Dark Knight?

Some may take offense to the fact that I may appear more concerned about the next Batman movie than Heath Ledger, but that is not my intent with this article. Heath Ledger’s death was shocking and a little depressing, considering that he was a great and underrated actor who, I believe, was on the verge […]

Winter DVD Release Schedule Updated

Over the weekend, I went through and updated the DVD release date schedule for January, February and March 2008 (as well as a few releases in April and even May). I realized I hadn’t updated the DVD release dates in a while, as I managed to add release dates and Amazon.com links for over 50 […]

Cloverfield Sets January Box Office Record

Cloverfield, the J.J. Abrams-produced monster movie, earned $41 million over the three-day weekend, according to box office estimates. With Martin Luther King, Jr. Day tomorrow and many of the film’s target demographic free, the movie is set to make a fair amount of money on Monday, too. The movie only costs $35 million to make […]

Movie Review: Cloverfield (2008)

The anticipation is over, and the J.J. Abrams-produced movie Cloverfield is now in theaters. After one of the most impressive marketing campaigns ever performed by a major motion picture studio, expectations were high, the buzz extraordinarily high. Cloverfield was pretty much asking to be a disappointment, but it is not to be. Cloverfield pretty much […]

Cloverfield Tops Friday Box Office

Cloverfield, easily the most anticipated film of early 2008, did not disappoint on Friday, January 18th, as it earned a whopping $16.7 million on Friday. Other Friday estimates have it at $18.25, and I have to figure the disparity between the figures relates to the Thursday-night midnight showings. UPDATED: Here are the final box office […]

How the F**k Did Sweeney Todd Win Best Picture?

Up until now, I’ve stayed quiet on the Golden Globes. Yes, the reason is partially that I’ve been too busy to do a blog post, but after the winners were announced in a press conference earlier in the week, I had to chime in. How in God’s name did Sweeney Todd win Best Musical or […]

Michael Clayton Gets Re-Released on January 25, 2008

Michael Clayton (2007), the critically acclaimed drama-thriller starring George Clooney, is returning to theaters on January 25th, presumably with hopes of getting some Oscar recognition. While quite incredible, the movie has suffered from a few things that could hurt its chances: It didn’t make any money. Sadly, financial success is often a factor in winning […]

The Top Ten Movies of 2007

The Top Ten Movies of 2007 List, as selected by me, Erik Samdahl, is here! As I said all year, 2007 was a terrific 365 days for film, as there were more quality movies than the last two or three years combined. I usually scrape to put a Top Ten List together, but this year […]

Sci-Fi Channel’s Mammoth DVD Really Sucks

Mammoth came out on DVD on January 8, 2008, but I had to wait to watch this one with my mom. You see, I’m not a big fan of direct-to-DVD or TV movies, especially ones like Mammoth which are pretty much guaranteed to be lousy. My mom, on the other hand, loves these kinds of […]
