And to be completely honest, I’m only wanting to see it for one exclusive reason…the beautiful Tamara Drewe…oops I mean Gemma Arterton is in it.

So this past winter has seen the release of action films from a lot of the action starts, old and new. I did not expect The Last Stand to be the best of the bunch, but given that A Good Day to Die Hard was a huge bust and Stallone couldn’t quite land a Bullet [...]

WonderCon presented a whole panel devoted to the upcoming release from Open Road Films, Lockout, which takes place in the [...]
I was hoping for more from a little arthouse flick about a bank robbery and the art of theater. It seemed like a nice change in pace for Keanu Reeves, who can be capable when he isn’t being openly mocked (some would say unfairly). Plus, Vera Farmiga and James Caan were on hand as co-stars [...]
