Call me crazy, but Julianne Moore has always been crazy, red hot!  Although I have yet to see it, her role in Still Alice is undoubtedly a winner as she took home the Oscar this year…FINALLY…for Best Actress in this.  The film also stars Academy Award Nominee Alec Baldwin along with Kristen Stewart, Kate Bosworth and Hunter Parrish.

Cronenberg Draws Up Satirical ‘Maps To The Stars’ (Movie Review)

Leave it to director David Cronenberg (The Fly, A History of Violence) to spend decades making studio films outside of Hollywood, only to finally shoot a film in Hollywood that looks to take it down.  Of course, it would help if this acerbic, satirical take on Hollywood culture was a little more attuned to the […]

Seventh Son Is An Epic Mess (Movie Review)

Seventh Son is a mess of familiar ideas, talented actors, and competent (but mostly ugly) visual effects; all brought together into one horrible movie.  There are various ways to approach a review for a movie like this, most of which involve making fun of it, and honestly, this is the kind of movie that has […]

‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1’ Successfully Sparks The Beginning Of The End (Movie Review)

Here is another critic-proof blockbuster that happens to be an entry in a series I very much enjoy.  With movies that not only have a massive amount of hype, but are also a part of an ongoing franchise, there really is not much to lose when writing about them.  I am not going to focus […]

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 Official Teaser Trailer Debuts

While there may not have been a panel dedicated to The Hunger Games in Hall H at Comic Con this year, there was certainly a Hunger Games presence at Comic Con in general, which was apparently also tied with Best Buy, among other establishments, as The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 debuted the new trailer in various forms […]

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 Teaser, Featuring President Snow

With all these current summer blockbusters out in theaters, it could be easy to not realize how big the fall is going to be, but between Interstellar, the last Hobbit movie, and of course The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, there are some really big movies coming out towards the end of the year as well.  Now […]

What About ‘Non-Stop’ Though? (Movie Review)

It is fun to see how much credibility an actor with gravitas can bring to a really silly film.  Liam Neeson has returned to the action/thriller realm once again to star in an airplane-hijacking film, with twists and turns that go way too far in terms of being plausible.  It matters little though, as the […]

Carrie (Blu-ray Review)

While I’m a huge Stephen King fan, Carrie is oddly one of his novels that I’ve never read for some strange reason as I think about it now.  Well, that’s definitely going to get added to the bucket list.  I can’t die with that on my conscious.  But anyway, that kind of preludes as to […]

Don Jon (Blu-ray Review)

I remembered when Don Jon rolled out theatrically this past September I was very nervous going in and partaking in it not because the trailers or television spots looked bad, but because they neglected to screen it for us members of the Austin press.  Usually, nine times out of ten, when there’s no screener that’s […]

You Will Know Carrie’s Name on Blu-ray Next Month

I make it no secret in life that one of my favorite young actresses in Hollywood is Chloe Grace Moretz so it should also come with no surprise that I’m looking forward to her performance in the remake of Carrie, especially since I missed it in theaters earlier this fall.  I have heard a bunch […]

‘Carrie’ Is Back, With A Vengeance (Movie Review)

The big question, when it comes to remaking classic horror films, is, “why?”  What is the purpose of taking a popular film and giving it another try?  Money is one of the easy answers, but what else?  Carrie seems like a film that does not exactly lend itself to being remade; as the story’s basic […]

The Adventures Of ‘Don Jon’ New Jersey (Movie Review)

As if Joseph Gordon-Levitt has not done enough to rank as one of my favorite young actors (Brick, Looper, 50/50, etc.), he has now gone and written, directed, and starred in his first feature film.  Having the story surround a real ‘Don Juan’ who also has a porn addiction is a bit of an interesting […]

6 Souls (Blu-ray Review)

We all love a good psychological thriller from time to time.  One that has us guessing and trying to piece together clues while at the same time keeping us in suspense and trying to get a good scare out of us.  Then we get some wonderful twist and our minds are blown.  6 Souls does […]

Featuring an all-star cast lead by Academy Award nominees Julianne Moore, Woody Harrelson and Ed Harris, Game Change revisits a defining moment in U.S. politics with a searing, behind-the scenes look at John McCain’s beleaguered 2008 presidential campaign – from the decision to select Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as a running mate to the ticket’s ultimate defeat […]

Hannibal (Blu-ray Review)

Wrapping up the 90’s, 1999, to be exact, author Thomas Harris decided to continue his Hannibal Lecter tale with the sequel to Silence of the Lambs with Hannibal. This caused quite a stir in Hollywood, and rights were snatched up, with production to begin for the film version of Hannibal as soon as possible.  The […]
