The Most Underrated Sci-Fi Movies of the 21st Century

The 21st century officially started January 1, 2001. However, for the sake of simplicity, we’ll include the year 2000 in there, primarily because it contains a “2.”  Over the last nine years, there have been plenty of sci-fi films, ranging from full-out action to indie dramas. Many have gone on to great things, like this […]

More Friday the 13th DVD Reviews

Paramount Home Video has unleashed another wave of terror upon us by re-releasing three more Friday the 13th movies on DVD, thus confirming that Paramount is, indeed, trying to get everyone in the world to commit suicide simultaneously. This awful franchise only gets worse as it goes along, as The Final Chapter and A New […]

DVD Review: Star Trek: The Trilogy

It takes a little bit of head scratching to figure out what Paramount is talking about when they refer to the Star Trek trilogy, as I’m pretty sure there are eleven films released one after the other with no proclamation of a trilogy. But when it comes down to it, there is a three-part story […]

Land of the Lost Flops With a Hangover Box Office

The Will Ferrell-starring Land of the Lost, considered this wekeend’s “big opener,” flopped hard on Friday, taking in only $7.2 million. The movie, which is budgeted at about $100 plus what must be a pretty large marketing budget, will be lucky to make $20 million for the entire weekend. Few people are crying over this.

Twilight Movie Trailer for New Moon Sucks

Has anyone watched the teaser movie trailer for the Twilight sequel New Moon? The teaser trailer is garbage. Absolute garbage. It looks like some kind of commercial for a TV movie, with the sappy romantic stuff at the beginning and the cheesy werewolf at the end.

Is G.I. Joe This Year’s Speed Racer?

OK, maybe the 2009 Speed Racer award goes to Terminator Salvation, but that’s perhaps a bit unfair as that movie will at least make $100 million. G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra however… God, may you bless humanity and urge everyone not to see this movie.

DVD Review: Defiance (2008)

Defiance was one of those odd films that the studio clearly had no idea what to do with. Despite starring Daniel Craig, hot off the biggest James Bond opening in franchise history, and featuring an established director in Edward Zwick, the WWII action film opened on limited screens and faded into obscurity before it had […]

DVD Review: Revolutionary Road (2008)

Kate Winslet, Leonardo DiCaprio and Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Road to Perdition) joined forces to make Revolutionary Road, a drama that flew under the radar in December 2008 and received lukewarm reviews from critics, despite being one of the best of the year. This emotional and shocking tale will be available on DVD this coming […]

The Best Animated Movie of 2009: Up

The wizards at Pixar have done it again. Up, their 2009 entry for Best Animated Film of the Year, is, undoubtedly, going to be the Best Animated Film of the Year. Funny, emotional, exciting and intelligent, this one will once again leave the teams at DreamWorks Animation and Fox Studios drinking away their nights in […]

DVD Review: Taken (2009)

First there was Paul Blart, and then there was Taken. It was only January 2009, and we had two major – and surprise – hits on our hands. I remember when I first watched the movie preview for Taken, the Liam Neeson-starring thriller that looks and feels a lot like a B-grade version of The […]

DVD Review: Tom Cruise’s Valkyrie (2008)

A lot of people shrugged off Valkyrie due to the presence of Tom Cruise, his American accent while portraying a German and the eye patch he wears throughout much of the picture. Then again, not that many people shrugged it off, as the Nazi film went on to make $200 million worldwide, proving that despite […]

Movie Review: Is Angels & Demons Worth It?

Many times, second chances are not an option, but in the case of Ron Howard and Tom Hanks, the two were granted an golden opportunity to make amends for the dismal thriller The Da Vinci Code, which was a box office hit but, understandably, a critical dud. A fan of the book, the movie was […]

Last Chance Harvey Movie Review

Dustin Hoffman hasn’t done much of note in recent years, but he storms his way back onto the scene in a big way with Last Chance Harvey, a touching, mesmerizing romantic drama that also stars Emma Thompson. Hoffman stars as the title character, a struggling ad musician who has traveled to London for his daughter’s […]

Hounddog Movie Review: Worth the Controversy?

Dakota Fanning headlines the controversial drama Hounddog, a movie best known for featuring a rape scene of the young actress. Directed by Deborah Kampmeier, Hounddog features strong acting and a good screenplay, but it fades in the end as it fails to get to the point. Hounddog is about a young girl named Lewellen (Fanning), […]

Donnie Darko Sequel: S. Darko DVD Review

There are many movies that have been released over the years where sequels make sense. That doesn’t mean they need sequels, but you can see how it’ll work. A sequel to Donnie Darko, however, never crossed my mind. Donnie Darko, one of the most unique, intriguing, mind-bending and debate-invigorating films of the 21st century, is […]
