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

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 […]
If you haven’t yet made it to theaters to see “The Thing” I highly recommend that you do so while the film is still in theatrical release. If, like me, you are a fan of the 1982 version starring Kurt Russell; I promise you will not be disappointed. Mary Elizabeth Winstead is excellent in this […]
I just Saw Transformers: Dark of the Moon. I know that I previously stated I would not go see this film in theaters but my plans for this evening changed at the last minute. If you must know I Typically take my teenage son and his friends roller-skating on Saturday evenings. That plan fell through […]
