I've recently learned that you people are remaking one of the dearest, funniest, most poignant and finely-crafted comedies of all time, 1981's entirely perfect and unassailable Arthur, starring Dudley Moore and John Gielgud. So I would like to take the time to urge each and every one of you -- from the producers and director, right on down to the lowliest grip and gaffer -- to kindly go fuck… Continue
It’s been a little over a year since we had the video-game masterpiece that was Batman: Arkham Asylum and its impact can still be felt even now. With its intricate plot, excellent presentation, and tributary gameplay mechanics, Arkham Asylum showed for the first time that not only could there be a great Batman video game but that superhero games could stand up there with even the best of the medium while staying true to what made the…
Spider-man/Peter Parker is my favorite superhero of all time. So anything that's usually associated with the web-head being announced (barring the terrible decision regarding "Brand New Day"), I look for more information like a blood hound. As you can probably imagine, as soon as I heard another Spidey game was being crafted for the next-gen systems that wasn't based on the movies, I was frothing at the mouth for any bit of news on the… Continue

This has been on my mind for a while now. With the Matt Reaves -- director of the love it or hate it CLOVERFIELD -- directed LET ME IN -- a second adaption of the novel already made into a film LET THE RIGHT ONE IN -- I've heard a lot of talk about "why are they remaking this movie? It's only been a couple years since the original came out" and "are they really out of ideas?" "Why can't people come up with their own movies?" I've heard this from people I know, people… Continue
All right, I'm not going to do a full-fledge review here but I am going to talk quickly about The CW's new series, Hellcats.
I just got done watching the first episode for this series which is about a law student (played by Alyson Michalka) who is in financial trouble and the only way to get scholarship is to go into cheerleading. Ashley Tisdale and Gail O'Grady star in the series.
For the most part, this CW series is actually not too bad. The acting is pretty good from… Continue
Uwe Boll, formerly known as the worst director in the world (until the title was snatched by Friedberg-Seltzer), has decided to depart from making terrible adaptations of video games and making "original" films. Granted the films he has been pumping out are, to say the least, disturbing. Last year he came out with "Darfur" (seriously that's what he called it) and "Rampage". Now Rampage didn't get a wide release but it did get some…
After listening to the Spill review of the Expendables and acting skills of one Dolph Lundgren, I decided to re-visit one of the earlier ventures of said acting juggernaut. I had only read a couple of Punisher comics when I saw The Punisher (1989), and to my teenage mind, the movie version was a…
In a recent interview with Vanity Fair James Cameron had some less than friendly words when questioned about Piranha 3D. When asked whether or not the recent release of Piranha 3D brought any sense nostalgia for him he responded "Zero. You’ve got to remember: I worked onPiranha 2for a few days and got fired off…Continue
