Reviewing Ebert's 'Greatest Films': What Ever Happened to Baby Jane (1962)

Published by

What Ever Happened Jaime 2 April 2014
Deep resentments and a lifelong sibling rivalry lie at the core of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane.  It is thriller of violent proportions and one that will freak you out.  When the film is great, it's as great as any film of its kind for its time.  However, in between moments of said greatness, Robert Aldrich's film occasionally lacks the urgency to propel its plot...

'Maleficent' Featurette sells the "Reimagining"

Published by

MALEFICENT
One of the biggest question marks this summer is Maleficent, which stars Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning and Sharlto Copley, as it seems like a Vanity Fair pictorial come to life.

Transcendence: Movie Review

Published by

TRANSCENDENCE
In the tradition of many flawed but fascinating science fiction films, Transcendence tries to be about ideas, but also has to build a story around them. In that way it's imperfect, but if you're in the mood there's a lot of great ideas to chew on, and some good, creepy portrayals of future tech. Johnny Depp and Rebecca Hall star in the film, and if you like the cinema...

Third 'The Hobbit' Film To Get Cooler Title, Maybe We'll Forget How Boring...

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
Let’s face it—Peter Jackson’s multi-film  adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s 1937 novel The Hobbit has been pretty mediocre and outright disappointing thus far.  Perhaps it has to do with taking what could have been a single-film adaptation of the 300-page book and stretching it into a bloated trilogy, with each individual film also being...
