Paradise: Movie Review

Published by

paradise
Diablo Cody's directorial debut Paradise is probably not what anyone would expect from the Oscar-winning writer, as it's a much gentler film that keeps her acerbic wit and social commentary in the margins. Perhaps that's why the film debuted on VOD before hitting theaters this weekend. All things told, it's a small and gentle movie that proves to be charming but...

Rock of Ages: Movie Review

It's always tricky trying to adapt a popular musical into a spectacular film. Sometimes you'll create a fun flick like Mamma Mia!, while other times you'll end up with a mess like Nine. Rock of Ages delivers a movie musical that can't carry a narrative tune. It has all the visual glitz and the glamour of the hit show...

Rock of Ages - Julianne Hough and Diego Boneta
Everybody wants to be a star at some point in their lives. It's something we've all dreamed about. And we know a couple young adults who didn't give up.

Tom Cruise in Rock of Ages
The hit musical Rock of Ages took many of the kitschy but lovably sincere rock anthems of the 1980's and Broadway-ized them. So who better to head up the film adaptation than Adam Shankman, who gave Hairspray a similar stage-to-screen treatment? The film - which stars Julianne Hough, Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Paul...

Miles Teller and Kenny Wormald get Footloose
The 2011 version of Footloose is a remake intended for a new generation who have no interest in a thirty year old film starring that guy from X-Men and that guy from that sitcom about aliens with the kid who was awesome in Inception. With Craig Brewer's slick directing that new generation is in for a good ride - even if the central conceit...

When not busy writing hacky, gimmick-ridden dialogue that is occasionally saved by the stellar acting skills of a film’s lead actress (Juno), and is sometimes not (Jennifer’s Body), Diablo Cody has decided to direct her first film, Lamb of God.  And now, she’s got two leads to either crumble beneath or shine...

New Trailer Requests You Get Footloose

Miles Teller and Kenny Wormald in Footloose
Even if the original movie inspires fond memories, it's hard to get upset at the remake of Footloose. I mean the premise of the 1984 original was thin then, but the music videos, and the then-prominence of MTV (which played the film's hit songs repeatedly) embedded the film into the public consciousness. Then again, it only takes one listen to get that Kenny Loggins...

Craig Brewer took on the assignment of remaking Footloose, and the challenges were legion. The premise is still the same - a concerned father/local reverend (Dennis Quaid here) gets his community to stop dancing. An outsider (played by newcomer Kenny Wormald) comes to town, and doesn't think the rules should apply anymore, while he also romances the reverend's...
