The Wolf of Wall Street has a lot of "F**k" in it

One of the more notable aspects of The Wolf of Wall Street is its explosive profanity. It's used so often, and in such great amounts, I eventually had to use the word in my review for the film. But in a brilliant way, the wor...

First teaser trailer for The Expendables 3 photo
First teaser trailer for The Expendables 3
by Nick Valdez

We've been completely in the dark with The Expendables 3. We've heard about all of that ugly stuff behind the scenes about Bruce Willis, the numerous additions to the cast, but no one really knows what's going on. There hasn't been a scrap of promotional material (like posters or images), and the teaser above was dropped on us completely by surprise. 

Of course I'm worried about how the film's going to turn out. Is it rated R again because Chuck Norris isn't coming back? Is replacing Bruce Willis with Harrison Ford a good move even if Ford is a sad old man? Sure The Expendables isn't the best franchise, but Expendables 2 was great for its last 20 minutes since it finally delivered on its promise. Can Expendables 3 be greater than the others now that Stallone is going up against Mel Gibson? I guess we'll see August 15th next year. Don't keep us in the dark for that long next time, okay?

Lionsgate considering a Hunger Games theme park

Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 could have been worse

Back when I reviewed The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, I admired the saga's balance of tones (I gave the film a 75, and still stand by it to this day) but I absolutely hated the film's cheap CG effects. For the first ...

Tim Burton in talks for Beetlejuice 2, Keaton returning photo
Tim Burton in talks for Beetlejuice 2, Keaton returning
by Nick Valdez

KatzSmith Productions has been kicking around the rights and ideas for a Beetlejuice rebootquel for awhile now, so we all knew it was going to exist someday in some capacity. Most of us feared that a new Beetlejuice would somehow ruin our childhood with a different cast (I mean, Winona Ryder didn't seem too interested in the idea), directed by someone other than Tim Burton, or a lack of Michael Keaton. 

Well, we don't have to worry about one of those things anymore. First off, Beetlejuice 2 is still kickin', and more importantly, Michael Keaton will return to play Beetlejuice because no one else could feasibly do so. Secondly, according to The Wrap, Tim Burton is now in talks to direct the film eventually. The site notes now that Warner Bros is confident in the script Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) wrote, they're now going through Burton's schedule and waiting for an availability. Basically, it won't be Burton's next film but it is in the pipeline. Who wants more Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice? I'll just stick to watching the cartoon, thanks.

Review: Big Ass Spider! photo
Review: Big Ass Spider!
by Nick Valdez

When you approach a film titled Big Ass Spider, you know what you're in for. At worst you're getting cynical Syfy Channel type low grade schlock, at best, you're getting a film that reached too high but it's failures are completely astounding to watch. With the confidence to name itself Big Ass Spider!, I hoped going in it would deliver on all the Big Ass Potential a title like that could provide. It certainly supplies all the dopiness, comedic schlock, and cheese I could ever hope for. 

So where does Big Ass Spider! fit into this spectrum? Is Big Ass Spider! a Big Ass Failure or a Big Ass Spectacular?
