Aside from the obvious (Rogue One) there aren’t a lot of movies scheduled to hit theaters in the next month; that I am excited about. One film that does look fun is passengers, starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence. I guess I’m a sucker for Space Opera. What movies are on your must see list?

When I first learned this adaptation of “Ghost in the Shell” was in production with Scarlett Johansson in the lead roll, I was somewhat disappointed. All I could think was “great, More Hollywood white-washing.” After seeing the short teasers and a behind the scenes/b-roll clip, I’m sold. This has the potential to be amazing. Mamoru […]
For as long as American film makers have been trying to make Godzilla movies, I have maintained that Godzilla should be left to TOHO Japan. Well … I just saw the trailer for TOHO’s “Godzilla Resurgence” and it looks gross … in a bad way. I feel like somebody at TOHO watched too much “Attack On Titan”. Very poor. could do better.
Cloverfield Lane isn’t really a sequel to the 2008 film, This feels like an entirely unrelated film shoe-horned into the cloverfield universe.
I’ve just finally gotten around to seeing Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice and I was reminded once again that, at least In Zack Snyder’s imagining, Kryptonian technology is very organic … and moist. I’m not gonna lie, it’s gross. I was half expecting to hear some dialog about protoculture and the Invid flower of life.
The Hunger Games was acceptable, as far as movie adaptations of young adult novels go. It certainly suffered some loss of fidelity during the translation from page to screen but that is what you expect. Worth the price of admission? If you’re a fan of the books it is definitely worth your time to see how someone else imagined the world of Panem
I really hope the writing staff is a little more creative this time around. I really hate to think of Starbuck romping around the cliche universe described in the last film. Remember the hot ass prison world; where all life was incinerated on the daylight side of the planet? Yeah, it was called “crematoria”. Really? That’s pretty original.
The latest trailer for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus was released on Saturday and it is Intense! The footage hints at an intriguing search for the origins of humanity. There is also a UK trailer that’s a little less action packed, but also less choppy.
“Jerry… that’s a horrible vampire name.” I purposely skipped seeing the new “Fright Night” in theaters. I’m generally not a fan of franchise reboot movies. Occasionally it is nice to see a familiar subject re-imagined with current cinematic technology. Unfortunately the new films fail to live up to expectations all too often. The new Nightmare […]
