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 half of the fil...

First RoboCop poster looks Dredd-ful

Remember when the first trailer for the RoboCop remake came out and I thought it looked like Dredd? Well the first official poster for the film isn't really helping matters much. It's the "all black" look of the new RoboCop that gets to me....

Transformers 4 now Transformers: Age of Extinction
