Captain America: The Winter Soldier: Movie Review

One of the things that's been great about "Phase Two" of Marvel's Movie plans is that we're now safely out of origin stories. No longer do these movies focus on how a superhero became a superhero (or how a team became a team), now they get to play, and it's brought new life into a genre that could have easily run out of fashion. Captain America: The Winter Soldier...

Currently it's hard not to be in awe of Marvel. Where other studios are straining to play catch-up, Marvel's built  a universe that expands with each new film, and with most of the groundwork laid down, now they get to have fun. Their latest offering is Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and it looks awesome, and now there's an extended TV spot highlighting the...

The most exciting part of this year's Super Bowl (unless you're a Seahawks fan) has been the trailers, and easily one of the best has been the extended trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The film, which has already set up a sequel, isn't hitting theaters for a couple months, but the new trailer has us champing at the bit to see it.

The British actor plays the founder of the website that's become a thorn in the government's side.

After years of making big, dumb, and almost sociopathically stupid CGI-heavy films like The Transformers franchise and The Island, Michael Bay is finally going back to the genre that he began in—big, dumb, and almost sociopathically stupid comedic action films that are well aware how utterly ridiculous they are (see also: Bad Boys, The...

Pain and Gain
Michael Bay has spent most of the last decade making Transformers movies, and will continue to for at least one more film. But for those who ever suggested the director had something going on besides being one of the most talented directors with visual effects and scale, it's been hard to defend Bay considering he's made three big-budget toy adverts. Now comes...

10 Years: Movie Review

10 Years Movie Review
Young Hollywood is going back to school. Writer-director Jamie Linden's reunion-centered 10 Years, features both established and up-and-coming stars. The laid-back dramedy is filled with familiar faces and honest performances that keep you glued to the screen. It's not a perfect film but it has a lot of heart, and "man of the moment" Channing...

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter: Movie Review

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter - Benjamin Walker as Young Abe Lincoln
"History prefers legends to men. It prefers nobility to brutality, soaring speeches to quiet deeds. History remembers the battle, but forgets the blood." Those haunting words describe Timur Bekmambetov and Tim Burton's historical-horror mash-up, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. The 3D adaptation is filled with blood and guts but plays...

Real Steel: Review

Published by

Hugh Jackman in Real Steel
When it comes to embracing a movie as superficially stupid as Shawn Levy's Real Steel, liking to loving it is almost like going through the stages of grief. Watching talented performers like Hugh Jackman, Evangeline Lilly, and newcomer Dakota Goyo make you invest in the tale of a boy and his robot boxer does lead to denial ("wait, how can I like a Shawn Levy Movie...

1-1 Interview: Anthony Mackie on Real Steel

Published by

Anthony Mackie and Hugh Jackman in Real Steel
Anthony Mackie has had a long road to real success, and he was open to talk about that journey when promoting Real Steel. Mackie got his big break in Spike Lee's She Hate Me, which was under-seen and did little for his career. But Mackie kept working, and it was one of those pictures, The Hurt Locker, that really...

The Adjustment Bureau: Movie Review

Published by

The Adjustment Bureau: They're in Love
The Adjustment Bureau, AKA a little something for everyone. Much like what I predicted when they released some clips for this film, this is very much a story with a lot of running around, a lot of "I love you, come back!", and some cool special effects. It's kind of like the Bourne films mixed with some Romeo and Juliet, with a sprinkle of...

A couple weeks ago it was announced that Benjamin Walker would play the title role in the film adaptation of Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. Now we're hearing that his sidekick and most trusted pal has also been cast, and it's none other than Anthony Mackie. We guess he's the go-to guy when it comes to being a friend in high stake situations.  Get it "stake?"
