I don't know how or why this made it to the internet so quickly, but this appears to be the whole extended comic-con trailer for Marvel's upcoming "Thor" in decent quality. So now we can let the actual and inevitable judging contest begin. This five minute preview certainly reveals a lot.
-We get to see some of the whole God pantheon of Asgard (however… Continue
I’m shocked, I tell you, shocked, that Warner Brothers chose not to send this out to me for review. More like, I’m shocked they sent it to ANY critic for review. Maybe not all, but most of us slammed the crap outta this awful… Continue
I'm embarrassed to admit something. This sort of thing so rarely happens but when it does, I've got to look furtively around to make sure no one else saw my desire, my guilty shame. There's no point in hiding it any longer so I'm just gonna spit it out.
There's a made-for-Syfy channel movie I wanna see.
There, I said it. You may now storm my house with torches and pitchforks. I certainly deserve it. Nothing in particular… Continue
At this point, this BBC television show could be the best story about vampires ever made and I’d STILL go into it with a cynical attitude. Good thing then that it’s also about a ghost and a werewolf. Living together. In a flat… Continue
What does the name Roger Corman mean to you? Perhaps nothing, and if that's the case, this’ll be a pertinent primer for you up-and-coming film cineasts out there. He’s one of the most prolific (and one of the only notable) of film producers. The Academy, to some controversy, gave him a Honorary Lifetime Achievement Oscar last year. This is a guy… Continue
Here it is, my geeky brethren. The stats on the upcoming release on September 28th on Blu-Ray (and DVD, for all you Luddites out there) of the biggest superhero event of the year, "Iron Man 2". While I got an odd amount of flak for giving this a high matinee instead of a… Continue
I missed the original theatrical release of this dark hitman comedy when it came out in 2008, but so many folks who know me well told me that I’d really like it, I picked it up on DVD right away when it came out. And promptly forgot about it. I put it alphabetically on my shelf and there… Continue
High School may have been a long time ago for me (ok, it was provably a long time ago; shut it) but I do remember it perfectly. I remember how serious it all seemed at the time; how a girl you liked not liking you seemed like the end of the gorram world, how a failing grade was excuse to do something spectacularly stupid afterward, how what people thought about you was all-important. In fact, the more your attitude and your clothing… Continue
Ever have one of those movies that you go see with your buddies, you all love it, and then find, much to your surprise, that most other folks found it merely ‘meh’? That was “Brooklyn’s Finest”…Continue
See now, this is one of those films that’s not fair to have to review for the first time in this format. I mean, for a Spill guy like myself who's more used to being able to let it all out with the guys on audio first. It’s not only the best film coming out on DVD/Blu this… Continue
There’s umpteen billion collections like this of movies out there floating around, most of them filled with throwaway pieces of fluff, cinematic appetizers not worthy of having their own packaging. Not so with Columbia Pictures box sets of some of their noir film classics. This is their second collection of them and it… Continue
