Review: Brick Mansions

Brick Mansions is a complete surprise. I had no prior knowledge of it going in (didn't know it was a remake of the French film, District 13), and decided to finally see it when one of the trailers managed to grab my attention. I had complet...

Review: 3 Days to Kill

3 Days to Kill is oddly complicated, and it has the potential to lose people right from the start. To understand this review you will have to keep that in mind, as what the movie appears to be and what the actual movie is are two total...

Lockout wallpapers courtesy of Flixist

Don't you hate it when you can't find any quality desktop wallpapers for a film you're really looking forward to? You only find, like, a poster or sometimes just a pitiful thumbnail image because the PR team handling the movie is severely u...

Trailer: MS One- Maximum Security

This is the same movie as Lockout, which we posted a trailer for last week, and let me tell you, this one is a lot better. You get a much better sense of the plot, the action, and of Guy Pearce's character, which is throwing me a snarkier ...

Universal picks up Luc Besson's next sci-fi thriller

So, it's awesome that Luc Besson is making a return to sci-fi. After years of waiting for something in the vein of The Fifth Element or The Professional, Besson is coming out with not one, but two sci-fi films. His latest, Lockout, we repor...

Not sure if I want the American B13

Failing to make a box office ripple stateside, the Luc Besson produced flicks District B13 and D13-U are to be forgiven for their absurd letter and numbering systems. They're of a precious few spectacles putting emphasis on action rather th...
