We’re about a week away from Man of Steel’s likely dominion over June’s box office, and while hopes are high that Christopher Nolan’s involvement will keep the film’s quality high, the fact that it’s being directed by Zack Snyder (300, Sucker-Punch) is enough to make some more than a little nervous.  But the trailers have been solid to great, and...

The previous Man of Steel trailers we’ve seen thus far have all more or less focused on the same thing—Kal-El’s journey from his home planet of Krypton to Earth, and the dueling influences of his two fathers.  His Kryptonian father predicts that he will help humans accomplish great things, while his adoptive Earth father wishes for him to hide his identity for fear of...

The Iceman: Movie Review

If you're looking for the next Goodfellas with The Iceman, then this film will disappoint you. While you do get stellar performances out of the talent, the movie's timeline and character focus is so imbalanced that it's difficult to really pay attention to the film.

His career as a mafia hitman didn't last forever, but his terrifying legacy remains. Years after his death, filmmaker Ariel Vromen struggled to bring Kuklinski's story to theaters, and he did...

Between 1964 and 1986, Richard Kuklinski killed at least 100 people as a professional contract killer for the mob.  He even gained a nickname, Iceman, because he would experiment with freezing the corpses of his victims to try and disguise their times of death.  In addition to this loveliness, he was apparently a dedicated and loving family man.  And who better to play such a charming...

'Man of Steel' Zod Toy
Sure, we've had a teaser trailer for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, but the film still feels like something of a mystery. So far in the teaser trailer, we've got a moody Superman/Clark Kent who seems to need to find himself, and no sense of what he's going up against in the film (perhaps ennui). Now there's toy spots that suggest he'll do some flying and fight a robot...

Michael Shannon—if you need someone to play a grim, wild-eyed sociopath, you could do far worse than Shannon.  Such must have been director Ariel Vromen’s thinking when casting Michael Shannon as real-life Mafia button man Richard Kuklinski (who killed 100 targets between 1964 and 1986) in the biopic The Iceman.

Premium Rush
Towards the end of summer, audiences are given buckets of lackluster films. Most of us associate August with being showered with dull cinematic messes, while anticipating Oscar season. But every once in a while we're blessed with a fun-loving, stupidly over-the-top movie like Premium Rush. It may not be the greatest thing to hit theaters, but it fits the bill...
