Ender's Game: Movie Review

Published by

enders-game-5
Ender's Game has always been one of those science fiction novels that's miraculously stood the test of time, being read by multiple generations and loved for its complex characters and intriguing themes. After so many years in waiting, audiences are given the cinematic equivalent of the Orson Scott Card novel, but a slightly more skeletal version than what many were...

Prisoners: Movie Review

Published by

PRISONERS
Prisoners, which stars Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal, starts out seeming to be one thing, but as the film goes on, it mutates into something else. Something much dumber. And as the film goes on it reveals it's not really about anything but the twists and turns that come from it being a sneaky mystery. Alas, such films are much more entertaining when they know...

Beautiful Creatures: Movie Review

Published by

Beautiful Creatures – Alden and Alice (TOP)
There is absolutely no doubt in our minds that Warner Bros. produced Beautiful Creatures in order to feed the hungry teens who crave movies like Twilight. The two share a lot of the same elements, but the Richard LaGravenese-directed fantasy has something the original never had: a sense of humor about itself.

Interview: Jeremy Irons and Viola Davis on 'Beautiful Creatures'

Beautiful Creatures – Jeremy Irons & Viola Davis
Beautiful Creatures writer/director Richard LaGravenese went the extra mile when he assembled the cast of his romantic fantasy film. His young leads are unknowns, with very little on their resume, but his supporting cast is filled with respected actors like Jeremy Irons and Viola Davis.

The process of Oscar predictions has changed completely over the last twenty years. Where there may have been favorites and hopes before that came with no sense of what could actually happen on Oscar night, blogging has turned the award ceremony into a stats game, where there are way fewer surprises than ever before.

Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close Trailer

Published by

Tom Hanks in Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
Is Tom Hanks Old Yeller in Stephen Daldry's Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close? It seems likely. Honestly, it's surprising that it's taken ten years for Hollywood to make a film that uses (and perhaps exploits) the tragedy of September 11, 2001 to make a movie about death (and perhaps a chance to feel good about being alive). Hanks stars with newcomer Thomas Horn,...

The Help: Movie Review

Published by

Emma Stone and Viola Davis in The Help
Racism is still a hot button issue in America, and though the civil rights movement was a previous generation's struggle, it's hard to address those issues cinematically and still make an entertaining film. 2011's The Help comes at a time when issue pictures are out of fashion, and so it seems slightly fresher than it might have had it come out in any other decade....
