The Box Movie Review

Summary [9 out of 10] The Box was a poorly marketed Sci-Fi thriller based on a short story with (what I found) to be a great extension of the source material with a very creative and well-told Sci-Fi story of it’s own. I never got the impression from the trailers of the movie that it […]

If you watched the Super Bowl, then you know this summer is going to be chalk full of comic book movies and so far, from the looks of the trailers, I’m digging it! Captain America: The First Avenger Thore Transformers: Dark of the Moon Super 8

Evangelion 1.11: You Are (Not) Alone Review

Introduction Evangelion 1.11: You Are (Not) Alone is the first release of a 4-part movie remake of the seminal Noen Genesis Evangelion anime series known as Rebuild of Evangelion. Yes, you just read that right. The Evangelion series is actually getting rewritten and remade in the form of a planned 4 movies, the first 3 […]

Transformers 3 Trailer Looks Awesome

I like the Transformers series. 1 was cool, 2 was a nice big-action/big-humor followup that I actually enjoyed quite a bit. Dave Bullock just sent along a heads up that the teaser trailer for #3 (due out July of ’11) has been released and damn, I love the Apollo mission/Dark side of the moon tie-in. […]

Grace (2009) Movie Review

Summary Grace is dark, moody, subtle, intelligent and above all, horrifying. Paul Solet has managed to put together a horror movie with a cast so talented and characters so well acted in this soup of subtle, magnetic misery that this film’s “horror” doesn’t come from overt use of gore, but rather disturbing imagery that is […]

IMDB, What’s Going on With Your Scores?

This post has been brewing in me for 3 years; the first time I noticed a guaranteed-bad movie on release weekend with an above-8.0 score on IMDB and hundreds of votes. I thought to myself at first “No way… how is that possible?” then I thought “Shit… I guess that movie is better than I […]

Book of Blood Movie Mini-Review

Introduction Book of Blood is not a classic Clive Barker horror movie in the “insane creatures and rampant gore” sense, but it is an interesting story told in a very creative way. Review Unfortunately for me, I rented Book of Blood at the drop of a hat after I came across the screen cap from […]

They Live Getting the Remake Treatment

Coming off of the raving success that is Scott Pilgrim vs The World, Edgar Wright will be taking the helm of what I can only assume is a remake of the John Carpenter classic They Live. Cleverly called Them, all we know at this point is the synopsis that hints at the same-themed Carpenter classic: […]

Toy Story 3 Mini Review

I just got back from Toy Story 3 in 3D and I have a few thoughts on the film that I’d like to share with the readers and get your feedback on this: This was about half as funny as Toy Story 2 – at least I found myself laughing about half as much during […]

Dante's Inferno: Animated Movie Review

Summary [6.5 out of 10] Dante’s Inferno: An Animated Epic is an excellent adaptation of the story behind the video game of the same name, but in the grand scheme of anime, feels like an average attempt. For a new IP from EA, putting all the money behind the game and the animated movie is […]

Indiana Jones 4… Doesn't Suck!

PSA: So it seems that it’s not George Lucas’s writing that destroyed the Star Wars franchise, but rather his directing. Luckily Spielberg was at the helm with this film and rumors have it that it doesn’t suck… it’s actually pretty damn good. Luckily that won’t stop us from speculating exactly how Lucas could have, and […]

Rambo Movie Review (2010)

Summary [8.5 out of 10] Rambo is a visceral, serious, action packed movie about the rescue of Christian missionaries from war-torn Burma and it’s military. Stallone’s execution of this movie is so raw and completely devoid of cheesy lines or “typical action hero” antics that you can’t help but walk out of the theater with […]

Shoot 'Em Up Movie Review

Shoot ‘Em Up Movie Review

Summary [7 out of 10] Shoot ‘Em Up is a ridiculously paced, non-stop action movie that is a collection of surprisingly cohesive scenes that provide excuses for the director to realize constant over-the-top action sequences that are a blast to watch ending with a great cheesy one-liner from the main character. Setup If you plan […]

Resident Evil: Extinction Movie Poster

Resident Evil: Extinction Movie Review

Summary [4 out of 10] Resident Evil: Extinction is a terrible, terrible movie. For fans of the games or even of the 1st or 2nd movie, just turn and walk the other way. Hidden deep in this script are literally 2 good ideas that get 3 mins of screen time, while the remaining 87 mins […]

Cloverfield Movie Poster

Cloverfield Sequel will Likely Happen had an interview with Cloverfield’s new golden-boy director, Matt Reeves, in which they asked about a sequel. Reeves commented on how much fun they had with the movie and as far as a sequel was concerned: We’ll just have to see, we’ll have to see whether or not anyone would even want a sequel. […]

Cloverfield Backstory, Mythos, Lore

NOTE: For those of you that don’t watch Lost and can’t understand what all the craze behind Cloverfield’s story is (why not just watch the movie and be done with it?) it’s because when J.J. Abrams creates a story, he sort of creates a fake world around the story (of fake companies, stories, backstory, etc.) […]

Cloverfield Movie Review

NOTE: I have tried to keep spoilers to a bear minimum (or not at all) in the main review. The “Areas of Improvement” section does contain spoilers and is marked as such. Summary [7.5 out of 10] Cloverfield is a suspenseful, well-paced, believably portrayed recounting of a group of friends during an epic monster attack […]

X-Files Movie with Mulder and Scully

X-Files Sequel Coming

Holy YES. I’ve been waiting for another X-Files movie since… well 10mins after the first one ended. Unlike a lot of the fans I liked the alien/government/cross-breeding story stuff and mass intrigue. I’ve always been a big fan of alien movies in general, and one in particular that made me crap my pants. Well it […]
