Hobbity goodness.

Peter Jackson has just released a whole slew of new cast photos from The Hobbit movie. Very nice. Of course, this one is going to be a hit – but I know a few die-hard LoTR fans (yes, you, Andy) who are not so chuffed about making a rather short novel like The Hobbit into […]

Finding Nemo 3D (Frank’s Take).

There is something fishy going on with Finding Nemo 3D and that is a good thing for the kiddies and adults looking to get hooked in the mouth with this succulent sea adventure from the creative minds at Pixar. When Finding Nemo first hit the big screen in 2003, the fearless fish was a refreshing […]

Kill him by ten in the AM or you’re dead too!

And that about sums up this mafia old boys movie, Stand-up Guys, where Al Pacino is a mobster just released from jail after sixty years, and Christopher Walken is his best friend tasked with whacking him out. This movie ain’t sleeping with the fishes, but after TV series like the Wire, it’s certainly a return […]

More Skyfall Bondage.

Skyfall is coming our way at the end of the month, so here’s a new poster for the latest James Bond film. After a mission in Turkey goes bad, James Bond is believed to be dead, and worse, his cover has blown on the internet (damn you, Wikileaks). When MI5 is attacked, Bond rescues M […]

Are we fitted to the times?

Ah, the rousing music and the raw themes of history and one of its greatest sons. Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln is here. Watch the new full trailer for the film and tell me that this is not the movie that Steven Spielberg was fitted to the times to create?

[REC] 3: Genesis (Frank’s take).

The banal bloodbath of the creepy continuation in the [REC] movie series is extended as it does not disappoint in the cheesy realm of shapeless shock cinema. The nonsensical and nauseating [REC] 3: Genesis is the tedious third installment emanating from the 2007 Spanish horror show that surprisingly gave a refreshing gruesomeness to the perverse […]

The Possession (a film review by Mark R. Leeper).

A family going through a painful divorce is also subjected to the ravages of a dybbuk, a possessing spirit from Jewish folklore. Until this point probably all dramatic stories of dybbuks have been based on a single famous play by Shalom Ansky. This film uses the concept of a dybbuk, but seems to have it […]

Finding Frankenweenie.

You can’t keep a good Tim Burton down (unless you’re Helena Bonham Carter), and the rogue and roguish filmmaker is back with his latest animated movie, Frankenweenie. The film should have been titled, Frankenstein: the Junior Years, but what the hey. It might have sounded less like a brand of hot dogs, then. Although there […]

Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth.

Yes, it’s the new trailer from the movie Lincoln. He’s a dead President, don’t you know. He also slays lots of vampires, demons and zombies. Just not in this film.
