Published by

It's no surprise that G.I. Joe: Retaliation topped the box office, it was going to make some money when it was released. The big thing for the movie is that it's already popular overseas, where it made an additional $80 Million, and that puts its grand total near $130 Million (which is the reported budget). Which means Paramount absolutely did the right thing with the...

If G.I. Joe Retaliation had opened on its original launch date of June 29, 2012, we'd probably have already forgotten about it by  now.

Despite the fact that the Twilight film franchise is finally coming to an end—at least until the inevitable reboot or spin-off—it appears our long nightmare is still not yet over.  That’s right: there are still other, even more terrible Stephanie Meyer books to be adapted into plodding, quasi-feminist yet completely sexist films about people woodenly falling in...

Who saw the 2006 Korean thriller The Host, originally titled Gwoemul in Korea? It was pretty awesome. In fact it brought in record-breaking numbers during it's run in South Korea. At times the film is completely ridiculous, but REALLY great. I guess Universal Pictures and Gore Verbinski (Pirates I,II, III and The Ring) saw the same thing I...
