Posted July 8, 2014 by Kevin Conn

I have a plan. It’s not a full plan to talk about the sneak peek at Guardians of the Galaxy, but it’s a plan. Like, a 12 percent plan. Anyhee, I was lucky enough to attend a 17-minute preview of Guardians Monday night and I am SO GLAD I saw it! Non-spoiler impression: The one scene they […]

The LEGO Movie Builds an Unexpected Treat

Posted February 9, 2014 by Shawn Proctor

Logan’s Run: Hugh Jackman Still a Cut Above as “The Wolverine”

Posted July 25, 2013 by Shawn Proctor

“The Wolverine” claws its way back into theaters after the disastrous solo outing “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” that left many X-Men fans wondering whether Logan/Wolverine could work as a standalone film. (Don’t worry. You’ll get a head’s up before the spoilers start.) The premise, largely adapted from the Chris Claremont/Frank Miller Copper Age comic miniseries, is […]

REVIEW: Les Miserables

Posted December 30, 2012 by Ashley Rogers

Theatre kids rejoice, Hollywood finally produced the musical version of Les Miserables starring Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, and of course Hugh Jackman.  How did the movie stand up against such a reknowned musical, one that ended it’s Broadway career twice, with a 2014 revival in the works?  Was the movie fueled with “the blood of angry men,” […]

“Wreck-It Ralph” Punches Above its Weight

Posted November 2, 2012 by Shawn Proctor

Heroes need great villains to define them. Consider Batman without the Joker, Spider-Man sans Green Goblin. Mario wouldn’t be as super without King Koopa, nor Luke Skywalker as cool without Darth Vader. And Fix-It Felix, Jr. (Jack McBrayer of “30 Rock”) has nothing to fix without his counterpart Wreck-It Ralph’s (John C. Reilly of “Step […]

Why The Avengers Movie Will Suck

Posted April 13, 2012 by David Palmacci

I get called a pessimist and not a true fan when I bust on the Red Sox for being only about three things; Dunkin Donuts, pink hats, and singing Sweet Caroline. People not from this area or who aren’t into baseball won’t understand what I’m talking about, but it’s ok: this isn’t about baseball but […]

Assassin’s Creed: Lineage Review

Posted January 18, 2012 by Jen Jen

Having known the general premise of the Assassin’s Creed games through scant actual gameplay, combined with director Yves Simoneau’s simple storyline, the film Assassin’s Creed: Lineage kept me subtly standing by as if I could unexpectedly be blinked out of a game cinematic and instantly dropped onto the streets of Italy. Not as the game’s […]

Green Lantern Trailer Debuts

Posted November 17, 2010 by ravenhaired

The trailer for the Green Lantern movie made its debut last night, and it’s still up on CBR for now.  Judging from the poll results they have on their site, fans aren’t sounding very optimistic.  I’ll reserve judgment until I see it on the big screen, but the CGI costume–particularly the mask–does look a little […]

The Green Hornet Trailer

Posted June 22, 2010 by E. Ortiz

This is the new Green Hornet movie starring Seth Rogen and Rain that will come out January 2011. It looks like they are going to make this into an action comedy, and that shouldn’t be a surprise with Seth Rogen as The Green Hornet. What do you think? Will it stink like Jonah Hex?
