Well, it's going to be a close race this weekend as Non-Stop enters the fray, as does Son of God, both fighting against reigning champ The LEGO Movie. And there's the Oscars, so it's a movie-centric weekend. Who will take the top slot? Likely the Liam Neesons movie, but it could go to any one of the three.

Non-Stop: Movie Review

non stop 1
The gruff, testosterone-filled charisma that turned actor Liam Neeson into the action superstar he is today just isn't enough to keep your full interest in Non-Stop. The high-intensity action movie stumbles right away in the first 20 minutes due to poor pacing and familiar themes that dull out the suspense at crucial points in the narrative.

a million ways to die in the west
Seth MacFarlane has been bringing a bunch of wonderfully raunchy humor back into the mainstream. Now that's not to say it ever disappeared; it was just a little dormant after the teen sex comedies had their run in early 2000. Thanks to the success of Ted, we're getting an additional dose of raunchy MacFarlane comedy on the big screen with his latest, A Million Ways To...

Now that Hollywood has officially decided to make entire films based around preexisting toys and board games like Transformers and Battleship, it was inevitable that we’d eventually get an animated Lego film.  And get it we have, with the aptly (if not entirely creatively) titled The Lego Movie.  And now we have the first trailer.

'Escape From New York' Remake is Roaring Back to Life

Escape From New York Wallpaper__yvt2
It seemed like Snake Plissken was safe for a while there, but not now. For a couple of years, Escape From New York was rumored to be remade, with both Len Wiseman and Breck Eisner attached as a director, and Gerard Butler (who was attached to a great many projects post 300) set to star. None of that happened. But now there's new producers...

This week offers a weird collection of late fall titles that either could have been Oscar contenders or something more. But most died on the vine. There’s Taken 2, and that should be the big hit this week, while Fox has a ton of catalog titles, and there’s a couple of new and classic Woody Allen’s. Take a look…

Despite the fact that a man’s family members can only be kidnapped or harmed before sequels run out of steam and he’s forced to blow up neighborhoods with a bazooka (sorry, I channeled Death Wish 3 for a second there), it appears that Taken 3 may be happening, thanks to Taken 2’s nice box...

Box Office Predictions: Will 'Frankenweenie' be 'Taken 2' the Cleaners?

Frankenweenie – Frankensteins Watching Movie
First: I apologize for that headline. A little. Second: Is it just me, or doesn't this weekend's titles feel like they belong in the summer months? You've got a Tim Burton movie versus a sequel to a huge hit, but it's the first week of October. You could just as easily see these two duking it out in May or June. But I guess they can't fight superheroes.

It’s that time of year again, when Liam Neeson returns from his slumber to star in whichever mid-level , slick action film Jason Statham isn’t already starring in, or isn’t being revamped into Tony Scott-directed vehicle for Denzel Washington.  This year’s gem?  Taken 2, in which Liam Neeson’s things get taken again, and so he has to take them back, and take some lives in...

This week we’ve got a best picture winner, one of the year’s best comedies, a foreign film Oscar nominee, a near-Bollywood musical, a forgettable horror movie, one of this year’s bigger noisy would-be blockbusters.

Because it just wouldn’t be summertime without at least one heavily CGI’d extravaganza of things loudly going ‘boom’ in an orgy of empty, lifeless action that we’ve seen hundreds of times before, all against a teal and orange canvas of depthless special effects, the film Battleship exists.  Filling the void left by the lack of a Transformers flick this summer,...
