Noah: Movie Review

Published by

noah-movie-review-7
Darren Aronofsky's Noah is finally opening in theaters. The film's based on one of the most popular and vital figures in the Bible. Aronofsky attempts to show the character as a flawed man struggling with his calling. It's a commendable effort, but somewhere along the line, Noah goes from unlikely hero to possible villain. The...

'Noah' International Trailer: Russell Crowe Will Protect the Animals

NOAH
It's odd to think we're almost a month away from Darren Aronofsky's Noah, which will bring the biblical story to the big screen in what appears to be a weird and wondrous take on the material/truth of a man (played by Russell Crowe) who built an Ark to protect all of God's creations from a flood.

Winter's Tale: Movie Review

Apparently we've all got a miracle in us and its our destiny to perform them, no matter how long it takes, and once we do we become stars in the sky, or something. And there are demons (like Russell Crowe) trying to stop us from fulfilling our destiny while also running the organized crime world in New York City. Or something. Oh, and there's a flying white horse. Welcome to the directorial...

Noah's Ark
The story of Noah and his ark—it’s one of the most inspirational tales of enduring human perseverance, faith, loyalty, and strength.  So what better place to begin spreading the word about his story than in a 30-second slot between an ad for Doritos and some Chryslers during the largest yearly orgy of advertising,  sports, and entertainment, right?  Which is why Noah, the...

Noah's Ark
A lead character who begins receiving mysterious and possibly apocalyptic visions which may or may not be legitimate, or could simply be the products of a burgeoning madness, and begins an obsessive journey of creation that risks self-destruction.  Sounds like your basic Darren Aronofsky film, no?  Well, it is—and it’s also the basic throughline for the Biblical tale of...

After the abject failure of Superman Returns, Man of Steel manages to surprise those with low expectations (myself included) with its solid casting and crazy action, but for those expecting the greatest comic book movie of all time, you might need a cold shower. The good news is it's not a complete...

Broken City: Movie Review

broken-city 3
Allen Hughes has stepped out on his own to direct Broken City. It's an intriguing thriller that stumbles on its feet as it comes to a close. It keeps you guessing and has a wonderful cast, but those positives can't hide the film's flaws.

No city is without its share of deceit and corruption. Humans are complicated animals who'll do whatever they can to survive --even break the rules. Director Allen Hughes' latest movie Broken City deals with how desperate people can become in order to maintain their reputation. Since he wasn't collaborating with brother Albert Hughes, Allen's unique directing style...

'Man Of Steel': Russell Crowe Drops Superman Spoilers

Published by

Man of Steel
While most of Man of Steel, Zack Snyder’s take on the Superman franchise (with a little help from producer Christopher Nolan), is still a mystery, Russell Crowe has recently come out with some spoiler-y information on the upcoming superhero film, and seems to definitely confirm this is going to be in the general ‘dark and gritty’ mode of comic book film, in which we “get into...

VOTD: Family Cries Uncontrollably After Seeing 'Les Miserables'

Published by

les miserables 7
Let’s face it—the most recent film adaptation of Les Miserables truly is miserable.  Not miserable as in bad; rather, it’s a nearly three-hour tale of theft, imprisonment, guilt, poverty, revolution, lost love, forced prostitution, misery, crime, and death.  So, yeah, it lives up to its name.  And perhaps nothing else in recent memory can sum that up but a YouTube...

Les Misérables: Movie Review

les miserables 7
Surprisingly enough, Les Misérables hit us right in the gut -- but in a good way. It's hard not to get swept up in the music and emotion pouring out of the film. While it's not perfect, the latest adaptation of the classic is solid and ready to be taken in by a new generation of fans.

Broken-City-Wahlberg-Mark
Broken City, which stars Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe and Catherine Zeta-Jones (all Oscar nominees, and 66% of those are winners) is coming out January 18. And it used to be if a film like this came out in January, it was because it was terrible. Nowadays, all it means is that it's a B picture that features stars, and may deliver the goods, but can't compete with...

'Broken City' Clip: Russell Crowe Intimidates Mark Walhberg

Broken City
They say January is where movies go to die. Allen Hughes' upcoming political thriller Broken City has an impressive cast, but can it do better than Mark Wahlberg's last January film (Contraband)? Our hopes are much higher for this one, especially after this first clip where an intimidating Russell Crowe tells Wahlberg, "I own you."

'Les Miserables' Trailer: Its Best Trailer Yet

Published by

Les Miserables
Les Miserables is one of a rare vanishing breed: a big budget, star studded Oscar Best Picture wannabe. For the last couple years the awards have been dominated by smaller, independent movies that are sold on their prestige, and a daring turn by an actor who was probably paid little money in the hopes of winning a golden statue. Not here. Nope, this is the big...

The Man With The Iron Fists: Movie Review

These days, many filmmakers are so obsessed with the films they grew up with, it feels like they're not just paying homage, but doing covers. RZA's The Man with the Iron Fists tries to come off as a fun-filled bloody action fest, tipping its hat to martial arts movies of the past, but in trying to incorporate so many homages it comes off as messy.
