Paranormal Activity 2 Movie Review

Truly scary movies come along only once every several years. Or two years in a row, if you allowed last year’s surprise blockbuster Paranormal Activity to get under your skin. Given that the low-budget horror movie went on to become the most profitable movie of all time (and also appeared on numerous “scariest movies” lists), […]

The Descent: Part 2 Movie Review

The sequel to one of the scariest monster movies in recent memory has come to DVD, skipping a theatrical release entirely – at least in the U.S. Direct-to-DVD sequels are usually a sign of something foul, but there are gems to be found on occasion. The Descent: Part 2, unfortunately, is not one of those […]

Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassins’ Ball Misses the Target

In 2006, Joe Carnahan unleashed the psychedelic Smokin’ Aces upon audiences, developing a cult following that unfortunately never formulated for his previous, much-better cop thriller Narc. Apparently, Smokin’ Aces was good enough to warrant a sequel – or at least a prequel – because Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassins’ Ball has now arrived on DVD and […]

Street Fighter Movie Trailer Ho-Hum

Below, watch the movie trailer for the upcoming action film Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, which comes to theaters this February. The trailer is rather unimpressive, though it wisely attempts to avoid looking like a video game adaptation as much it can. The cast is recognizable but not filled with A-listers by any mean, […]

Disney Drops Narnia 3 Like a Bad Habit

Following the so-so box office results for The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Walt Disney had decided to pull out of distributing for the upcoming The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader. The Hollywood Reporter says, “Disney and Walden Media confirmed Tuesday that for budgetary and logistical reasons the Burbank-based studio is not […]

Terminator: Salvation Movie Trailer: Forgiveness for McG?

As Kirk would say, I will never forgive McG for the making of Charlie’s Angels 2. At least, I haven’t yet. Charlie’s Angels 2 was one of the worst movies ever made, highlighted by horrid special effects and painful direction. Complemented by the fact that I am repulsed by anyone who would go by the […]

Battlestar Galactica: Caprica is Going to Suck

Battlestar Galactica comes to a triumphant end in early 2009, closing out what could be the best sci-fi television series ever made. And that coming from someone who thoroughly enjoyed many of the Star Trek TV series and who loves Firefly – all 12 episodes of it. The show is a masterstroke of action, espionage, […]

Movie Review: The Scorpion King 2

With great reluctance, I offered to review The Scorpion King 2: Rise of a Warrior. A direct-to-DVD release, the action-thriller had very little going for it, but considering the fact that it’s “from the producers of The Mummy” and stars UFC champion Randy Couture, it had to be great, right? Wrong. The Scorpion King 2: […]

Donnie Darko 2: What Has the World Come To?

I love Donnie Darko. The movie, directed by Richard Kelly and starring Jake Gyllenhaal, was an amazing piece of work in every way. I do not love news that Donnie Darko 2 is in the works, however. There are some movies that are great on their own, that are so good that any other related […]

How Will the Descent 2 Movie Work?

OK, so in the American version of The Descent, Sarah, the lead character, scrambles up a bone-filled hill, crawls through a hole and escapes the cave where the monsters who killed all her friends dwell. She runs through the forest like a crazy woman, gets in her car and drives away. Once she is far […]

Fourth Jason Bourne Movie! (The Bourne Identity 4)

One of my favorite action franchises – the Jason Bourne series -  is returning for yet another installment, and the key players, director Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon, are returning. Without them, I would be much more hesitant, but now the film is all but guaranteed to be good. Following Doug Liman’s The Bourne Identity, […]

Aliens Vs. Predator Requiem Not In High Demand, Survey Finds

Remember that horror movie survey we ran way back in October? Here’s some of the results: A survey conducted by Bellevue, Wash.-based movie website Movie-Source.com found that among seven recent and upcoming horror movies to be released in the fall or winter of 2007, Aliens vs. Predator Requiem, a sequel to the 2004 box office […]

New Rambo Outdoor Movie Poster

Rambo, starring Sylvestor Stallone, hits theaters January 25, 2008, and Lionsgate has just made the new outdoor movie poster available. It’s not nearly as cool as the regular poster, but certainly still has an appeal for it. I can’t believe I’m saying this about a Stallone movie, but I’m really looking forward to this bloodbath…

New National Treasure 2 Movie Trailer is Much Better

Here’s the new National Treasure: Book of Secrets movie trailer, starring Nicolas Cage. I really didn’t like the first movie (I found it long, boring and tedious), and this one looks just so ridiculous I doubt I will enjoy it. Still, this new movie trailer is a vast improvement over the original preview, which was […]
