Box Office Fire for Twilight: Eclipse

The failings of the summer box office are distant memories as The Twilight Saga: Eclipse continued to dominate theaters, taking in $28.6 million on Friday to bring its three-day total to $121 million. I typically make that amount in a day so it doesn’t blow me away, but apparently $121 million in three days is […]

Blu-Ray Review: Predator Ultimate Hunter Edition

The Robert Rodriguez-produced “reboot” of the Predator franchise – Predators – opens this coming Friday, and it was inevitable that 20th Century Fox would unleash an updated edition of the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic Predator to milk a few extra dollars out of willing cinephiles. This new Blu-Ray edition, titled The Ultimate Hunter Edition, doesn’t provide […]

Bao Tran’s Black Coffee Movie Review

Rising filmmaker Tran Quoc Bao is at it again, this time with another deliciously simple short film called Black Coffee, about a politician named David. David is a good guy, but he’s a little too nice to a woman who isn’t his wife. When someone snaps pictures of he and his lover kissing and blackmails […]

The Career of M. Night Shyamalan: To Love or Hate

More divisive than the Health-Care debate, more controversial than immigration reform, more polarizing than the red state/blue state divide is…the relationship moviegoers have with M. Night Shyamalan. Few filmmakers in history provoke such strong emotions by the mere mention of their name – go ahead, try it, ask anyone what their thoughts are on Shyamalan […]

Summer Movie Guide: 9 Movies to See in July

Two summer movie months down, two disappointing months in the bag. There have been a couple bona fide hits, a few good movies, but so far this summer has been a bit of a bust – with little to get excited for or show up at the movie theater three hours in advance so you […]

Percy Jackson DVD Review: Not Very Heavenly

Based on a seemingly popular book series, Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief is about a dyslexic teenager in New York who, after being attacked by his step-teacher-turned-winged-creature-from-hell, discovers that he is in fact a demigod, the son of Poseidon, can control water in unnatural ways (he doesn’t have to go to the […]

Suicide Girls Must Die DVD Giveaway + Exclusive Clip

Suicide Girls Must Die!, the world’s first reality horror movie (according to the tag line on the DVD cover, though I tend to believe it), is coming to DVD on June 29! We’re giving away three DVD copies of the unique movie, and also have posted an exclusive video clip from the film. When twelve […]

World Cup Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz

As good as Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz look in this video, I’m sure the referees would find someway to blow a call. Is there a rule for playing with CGI soccer balls?

SIFF Movie Review: Patagonia

The Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) is long over, but this just goes to show how busy I’ve been: between long work weeks, sports and multiple bachelor parties, movies have taken a back seat to things are “allegedly” more important. Still, I managed to get to two SIFF films out of its four-week run, the […]

True Blood: Season 3 Marketing Apology

The summer TV season heats up on Sunday with the season three premiere of True Blood, starring Anna Paquin. The 12-episode season is, according to Wikipedia, based on the third The Southern Vampire Mysteries novel Club Dead, which means nothing to me since I haven’t read any of the books. But the first two seasons […]

Poor People With Tough Decisions: X-Men Vs. Spider-Man

Many people face tough decisions in life, and I feel for them. I really do. Well, I don’t, but for argument’s sake, I do. And then there’s Michael Fassbender, who is facing a quandary of epic proportions. I mean, I can’t imagine what the man is going through right now, torn, divided and downright ravished. […]

Summer Movie Guide: 11 Movies to See in June 2010

Can you believe it’s already June? I can’t. Here in Seattle, the weather is still cloudy and cold, and the May movie season turned out to be a magnificent flop, with only Iron Man 2 being a worthy watch. Thankfully, June looks a bit better… but not that much better, as there are only two […]

The Wolfman Movie Review

I’m no math whiz (actually, I kind of am), but when a movie costs $125 to $150 million to make, and only makes $70 million in theaters, that means it lost money. A lot of money. And I’m no movie buff (OK, I definitely am), but when a movie gets bumped back from November 2008 […]

8: The Mormon Proposition Movie Review

America is a funny place these days. And by funny, I mean disappointing. While conservatives continue to fret about the degradation of American values in the economy and our way of life – citing liberty and freedom – they continue to restrict the freedom of their fellow citizens. Homosexuals are just the latest minority to […]

Micmacs Movie Review

Amazed by Amelie, yet underwhelmed by A Very Long Engagement, I really didn’t know quite what to expect with Micmacs, the third film I’ve seen from famed French director Jean Pierre Jeunet.  Sadly, Micmacs falls a bit short of both other films.  Micmacs follows the main character Bazil, who is taken in by an oddball […]
