Because Joss Whedon has cautiously let the entire world know that X-Men and sometimes Avengers comic book characters Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver will be appearing in The Avengers 2 (rather, they’re in the current draft, at least), it’s now time to let the rampant speculation begin as to who will take the role of the two new Avengers—because simply waiting to find out when the...

It's not a lot of information, but it's more than we knew before. And Anderson finally cast his female lead. Hint: She's very young, and very talented. We also have the first teaser poster for...

Hanna: Movie Review

Hanna
Rarely do you get so much fine acting, action and suspense all packed into one jet-fueled, 70s-Euro-esq thrill ride as you do in Hanna. Step aside Sucker Punch, it's time for some real bad-ass chicks to take control. The film stars the impressive cast of  the young and talented Saoirse Ronan; Cate Blanchette one of the best baddies there is; Eric Bana who provides both the...

Saoirse Ronan has quickly established herself as one of the most powerful, young actress on the big screen.

Peter Jackson took on more than he might have bargained for with the film adaptation of The Lovely Bones. The film is constantly walking the line between disturbing and beautiful, and overall it is a success, just not the full success that it had the potential to be. There is no debating that this is one of beautiful films that you'll see all...

What makes The Lovely Bones so special is its extremely disturbing and yet oddly beautiful tone. The only way to get to heaven is through death, and in the case of Susie Salmon, played by Saoirse Ronan, it's a brutal passage. The film involves a rape and murder of a child, by a man who seems to be evil for no good reason. Peter Jackson, Stanley Tucci, Rachel Weisz,...
