Stupidest Woman Alive Sues The Distributors of “Drive” Because the Film Wasn’t The Fast and Furious

A couple of weeks ago I wrote an article trying to understand the disconect between the film Drive’s audience and the large amount of critics who’ve praised it.  Essentially it boils down to marketting.  The actual film is quite subdued and artistic, moving from relative calm in the first two act into all out headstomping […]

“Like Crazy” Review (2011)

Call me a hopeless romantic, but I really dig well-done romance movies.  Thus, Like Crazy is the perfect movie for someone like me in that it is both heart-warmingly romantic, but entirely hopeless. Like a modern day retelling of Romeo and Juliet, Jacob (Anton Yelchin) and Anna (Felicity Jones) are a couple made for each […]

“Snowtown” Review (2011)

I almost didn’t see Snowtown.  The description posted on the TIFF website was only moderately interesting and the film hadn’t been screened outside of Australia before so there wasn’t really any buzz regarding how good it actually was.  But I ended up with a ticket to see The Moth Diaries at 10pm at a tiny […]

“Hick” (2011)

30 people is the average number of active and inactive players on most professional hockey teams.  30 people is generally the amount of staff on board any given small to averaged sized cruise ship.  30 people is, quite unfortunately, the same amount of people that walked out of my Sunday night screening of Derek Martini‘s […]

This Week In Awesome: The ‘Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil’ Trailer

The slasher genre has become somewhat of a joke as of late.  Filled with arbitrary nudity, ridiculous gore, and devoid of thrills, Hitchcock probably rolls in his grave every time one of these teen popcorn films releases and calls itself ‘slasher’.  Well roll no more Mr. Hitchcock, because while ‘Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil’ may […]

‘The Darkest Hour’ Gets a Trailer and Some more Concept Art

Chris Gorak (Art Director on Fight Club and Minority Report) brings us the latest in ‘do we really need another alien invasion movie?’ with his film ‘The Darkest Hour’.  If Cowboys and Aliens accomplished anything, it proved that you can no longer make a film, add some aliens, and expect a huge box-office return.  So I’m not […]

This Week in WTF: The “Battleship” Trailer

Remember all the aliens involved in those frustrating games of Battleship you played as a kid?  You don’t?  Well Peter Berg lets us know that he certainly does with the first trailer for his upcoming board-game-now-with-more-aliens film Battleship. You can watch the trailer over at Yahoo Movies.         Call me crazy, but I […]

Review: Horrible Bosses

    The summer has been awash with disappointing comedies so far.  The highly anticipated Hangover 2 was a cheap retread of it’s predecessor, and Bad Teacher — a film I was actually looking forward to watching — was completely devoid of laughs.  Going into the theaters I had completely written off Horrible Bosses —  it looked […]

    Variety reports that Sony has found a new man to helm their troubled Uncharted video game adaptation.  Director Neil Burger is slated to take over the role of writer / director in the wake of David O Russel’s departure late last month.  Burger is known mainly for the Illusionist, and more recently the […]
