Mockingjay Part 2 Review photo

Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2

I didn't read The Hunger Games or its sequels. When the first film came to theaters, I had heard a whole lot of people talking about the books, but I didn't know anything beyond the "It's pretty much Battle Royale" premise. When the fi...

The Witcher is getting a movie for some reason

You folks like movies? You folks like books? You folks like videogames? What if I told you that you could have everything all the time? Because it's not like having everything you want is bad, right? Anyway, like most major book series turn...

David Lynch to co-write a memoir/biography titled Life & Work

The new season of Twin Peaks is currently in production and should be out next year on Showtime. The series (which is basically a very long Twin Peaks movie) will mark a major return by David Lynch, whose last feature film was 2006's Inland...

 
 
Allegiant Trailer photo

First trailer for The Divergent Series: Allegiant exists

The worst criticism I can give a film (which my roommate hates) is when I say a film just "exists." By that, I usually mean the film isn't good or bad enough to warrant an actual opinion. Through my tenure here I've been exposed to a wide v...

 
 
 
 
 
Goosebumps Trailer photo

First trailer for Goosebumps is in for a scare

I've been interested in the Goosebumps movie for some time. When it was first announced, it sounded like a neat but very weird idea. In the film adaptation of R.L. Stine's popular line of children's horror novels, Stine (Jack Black) is a wr...

Poster for the New Goosebumps Movie is Surprisingly Badass

Apparently, there's a Goosebumps movie coming out soon-- You know, those books they always sold at your school book fair that were equal parts cheesy, weird, and occasionally horrifying? Columbia Pictures released the poster for the film to...

 
 
The Martian Trailer photo

First trailer for Ridley Scott's The Martian

Although Ridley Scott has had a few misses lately, his adaptation of Andy Weir's The Martian might shape up to be quite a film. It's got a great cast with Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Pena...

 
 
Scorch Trials  photo

First official trailer for Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials

Although I don't remember liking The Maze Runner too much, I did appreciate what it did differently from all of the other Young Adult book films floating around. A testosterone riddled film full of run and gun dumb action. It was completely...

E.L. James' husband writing Fifty Shades sequel

I understand giving an author some say over their book's adaptation, but this is getting ridiculous. It seems that the production of these films is so awful, any of the slightly talented people involved are being chased off by this nonsense...

Steven Spielberg to direct Ready Player One

The Warner Bros./Village Roadshow adaptation of Ernie Cline's sci-fi novel Ready Player One just got a huge boost in credibility and visibility. Legendary director Steven Spielberg has signed on to helm the video-game fueled flick. Publishe...

E.L. James wants control over next Fifty Shades screenplay

Fifty Shades Of Grey was a movie without a country. Sam Taylor-Johnson attempted to craft a feminist subversion out of the novel's infamous tale of abuse, whereas E.L. James wanted her work to be faithfully adapted, and clashed repeatedly d...

 
 
Fifty Shades Review photo

Review: Fifty Shades of Grey

I should start this review by being as frank as possible. I'm not really sure who this review is for. With Fifty Shades of Grey, you'll fall into either one of two camps. You're either planning to see it (or have already seen it) ...

Warner Bros wants to make a live action Robotech again

Robotech, an anime in the 80s adapted from three different series for an American audience, has been in the pipeline for years. Different teams of directors and writers have been trying to get a film adaptation going but were never successf...

 
 
Fifty Super Spot photo

Super Bowl TV spot for Fifty Shades of Grey

In preparation for the Fifty Shades film, which I have no idea which one of us is going to review yet, I started reading the book. Boy, is it far more fan fiction-y than I had realized. It's got some of the worst written sex scenes I've se...

 
 
Insurgent Super Spot photo

Super Bowl TV spot for The Divergent Series: Insurgent

With as interesting as the Divergent sequel, Insurgent, may be, I really hoped it would've fixed its CG issues by now. It's a shame too because the whole dreamscape aspects are putting out all sorts of crazy Matrix vibes (although the "She...

Music plays an integral role in film. Easily ignored, easily forgotten, a film's soundtrack is the little celebrated framework of cinema. But when sound and sight marry into a great scene, you get some of the best moments. Like in 2013, 201...

Nick's Top 5 Sequels of 2014

We've seen more sequels released the last few years than we have in a long time. While 2015 seems to continue that trend, last year showed that we shouldn't automatically write off a film just because it's a sequel. I've seen so many good s...

Review: Predestination

Predestination is one of those festival films that you have no idea exists but, when you finally see it, you wonder where it's been your entire life. I'm not the biggest time travel movie fan, nor do I really enjoy science fiction in genera...

 
 
Insurgent Trailer photo

First full trailer for The Divergent Series: Insurgent

I liked the first Divergent film enough. Although it's basically a thinly veiled message of "Everyone sucks but me because I'm different," everything was just super cheesy and bad looking enough to work. It's better than the sum of its par...

Here's that great Hanging Tree song from Mockingjay- Part 1

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 was pretty good. It's the best in a rough series and stands out due to some great decisions. But one of the clunkier ones was "The Hanging Tree." A song featured in the book, it was in the middle ...

Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

Jamie Dornan won't go the full monty for Fifty Shades of Grey

Although I may not be one of the many folks eagerly anticipating Fifty Shades of Grey, the first trailer for the adaptation drew quite a bit of attention. Whether or not I agree with its use of Sado Masochism, I kind of have to admit I was ...

Final trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1
