Snore White and the Huntsman

This is a film convinced it’s as epic as Lord of the Rings with Brother’s Grimm (movie) flair. Movies, as in fairy tales, are about the journey, not the destination. The journey in Snow White is so mind-bogglingly boring that by the time you get to the end-game you just want to go home. This … Continue reading

The Only Avengers Review You Need to Read

It was awesome. You should watch it.

The Cabin in the Woods

Finally got the chance to see The Cabin in the Woods last night after hearing many good things, and it’s pleasant to say it didn’t disappoint. For those of you who haven’t seen the trailer and don’t want to know anything other than it’s a cabin in the woods and some college kids head out … Continue reading

Tekken Blood Vengeance

  I know I am late to the Tekken Party with this one, but I stumbled across this movie just the other day and decided to give it a go. I did not have the “pleasure” of watching the Tekken Live Action movie, but I have always been a fan of all things Tekken. It … Continue reading

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Hilarity

Warning: In NO WAY should you take this movie seriously. Also, it was AWESOME. With comments after the credits amounting to things like “Eh, it was better than Fantastic Four two…” and “It was worse than the first movie!” Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance isn’t getting the love it deserves. With the less than dazzling … Continue reading

Mama Said Knock You Out

HAYWIRE Steven Soderbergh’s latest film about a black ops, ex-marine (Mallory) who is betrayed and is forced to spend the rest of the movie unraveling the secret plot to end her life was certainly not at the top of my list of must see movies. In fact, I usually spend this time each year trying … Continue reading

George Lucas tells the world to Suck it!

Okay. He didn’t literally say it but in a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal (you know, that newspaper that makes you sound smart just by referring to it?), Lucas has all but signaled that he is taking his toys and going home. The article, which mostly covers his new movie Red Tails, has … Continue reading

Holiday Gift Guide

Recently a coworker of mine had a rather vivid, gruesome dream about Black Friday. In it, the customers were armed with spears, axes, bows and arrows – all of them battling the sales team to the death. We were falling left and right, she said, taking heavy losses store wide. She was dragging the wounded … Continue reading

Muppet Therapy

Movie theaters. My efforts to join this American institution have lessened as I have grown older. I attribute my waning interest in them to the inevitable presence of those pesky layabouts known as teenagers and the memories of sticky floors and sticky seat-neighbors that tend to be sticky teenagers. Still, with my historic distrust for … Continue reading

Doctor WHAT?!

The Doctor goes to Hollywood, and I’m terrified. It turns out David Yates, the director of the last few Harry Potter movies, let it slip to Variety that he’s working with BBC to turn that loveable, 900-year-old madman with a box into a Hollywood icon (more or less, mostly less… but my paranoia runs rampant). … Continue reading
