Walking With Dinosaurs: The Movie (Blu-ray Review)

Walking With Dinosaurs was a pretty big disappointment for Fox this past winter.  The $80 million budgeted film only took back $36 million in the United States.  When added, the overseas totals take it to $125.5 million overall.  But, Fox claims that the intake globally is still very lackluster.  The film featured computer generated dinosaurs […]

Walking With Dinosaurs was a release this Christmas that failed to catch on with audiences in the US.  Some might not have even heard of it.  This was a big project that opened with a whimper a midst all the Oscar buzzed film and popcorn flicks.  It did manage to recoup the budget overseas without […]

Star Trek Into Darkness (Blu-ray Review)

Being a huge Star Wars fan all my life, who has more times than I care to admit called Star Trek boring, dull and lifeless with the exception of The Next Generation episodes Ashley Judd breathes life and beauty into, I was astonished by how much fun I had with J.J. Abrams fresh take on […]

Star Trek Into Indifference (Movie Review)

I have honestly not tried to make a big deal out of this more publicly, but my interest in Star Trek as a franchise is almost non-existent.  Do I respect what it has brought to the world?  Sure.  Do I enjoy the work of many involved in the making of this newest entry?  Of course.  […]

Dredd Is The Law, And He Brings Proper Judgment

For a movie that is about brutal violence and maintaining a dark and nihilistic tone throughout, Dredd sure was a pretty film.  This second attempt on a theatrical feature about the futuristic cop who serves as judge, jury, and executioner is an exercise in grit and violence, with just a hint of self-satire to keep […]

Priest (Blu-ray Review)

You wanted some non-sparkling vampires, well now you got them!  Priest is the latest graphic novel-to-film-adaptation to hit the big screen with a pretty strong and familiar cast.  The original graphic novel is Korean and was created by Hyung Ming-woo.  The cast of Priest is comprised of Paul Bettany, Karl Urban, Cam Gigandet, Maggie Q., […]

‘Priest’ Has Committed Many Sins

I want to know what happened behind the scenes during the production of this movie.  It would have to be more interesting than anything that happened in this film.  The film is based off of a very popular Korean comic series, so I would like to think that someone brought in a presentation to Charles […]

‘Priest’ Offers Few Blessings

During a recent discussion with a like-minded comic book aficionado, my conversing counterpart referred to vampires as ‘cupcakes’, citing the popularity craze over both in mainstream media. Apparently cupcakes are the current hip dessert, and vampires, likewise, are the current hip supernatural flavor. With that in mind, the latest fang-bearing craze to arrive in the cinema is […]

RED – Reasonable Elderly Delight

A decent action comedy that I feel is going to get more love from general audiences than I had for it.  I certainly enjoyed the movie overall, thanks to its casting and a couple of fun action scenes, but something about this film’s energy just did not hold up well throughout.  While based on a […]

The Lord of the Rings – The Two Towers Theatrical (Blu-ray Review)

After the critical and commercial success of The Fellowship of the Ring, the expectations were higher for The Two Towers.  For Peter Jackson and crew, The Two Towers was the hardest movie to make out of the three because when their script was changed from two movies (as originally intended) to three, some major changes […]

Comic-Con 2010: Summit Entertainment’s RED

In case you are in the dark like I was, RED stands for “Retired Extremely Dangerous.”  It’s kind of a fitting title for this coming of age ex-CIA action comedy vehicle.  The panel of actors, consisting of Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker (Weeds), Helen Mirren and Karl Urban (Star Trek), sat down with writer Warren Ellis […]
