This is a note that is concerning really the area at or around the town I'm from.
The local theater, which usually always has movies at 4.75 a pop (not bad seating or quality either for a place about 80 years old), is doing a series starting March 11th every Wednesday night, $6 a seat. Old classics play with a live organ guy, Jeff Barker, playing half an hour before each screening (one, a super-rare silent film, will be playing on top… Continue
Now, before I start this list, I want to talk a bit about the upcoming 'Robocop' movie. Now, some of you may be wondering: "Why in the sweet Jesus is this guy talking about the new 'Robocop' movie?" And the reason is because that I completely loved the original film with Peter Weller as Alex Murphy/Robocop. And once I heard that they were remaking it, and they actually have a great director(Darren Aronofsky; 'The Wrestler', 'Requiem for a Dream', etc.) attached, that was a nice relief. Knowing… Continue

If you're among those that cling to the misguided idea that Street Fighter:The Legend of Chun Li was at the least a better movie than the '94 movie starring Jean Claude Van Damme...kill yourself. If you think this movie is a step in the right direction, then you would be doing humanity a favor.
It would be impossible to call yourself a fan of the franchise if you liked this movie. There is nothing about this movie that remotely… Continue
With the success of the live-action film TRANSFORMERS, the robots in disguise proved that there was too much action for just one film. This sequel promises more in the epic battle between the Autobots and the Decepticons.
What did I think, that any film with the title “_______ Movie” even had the outside chance of being amusing at this point? I figured, hey, it’s got segments co-written by SNL peeps like Will Forte and Andy Samberg.… Continue
Let's just get this out by saying I'm a child of the 90's. I grew up during the rise of the Internet and the revolution of Saturday morning cartoons, so maybe I'm a little stubborn in my opinions on this. Honestly though, I think Cartoon Network has really gone down hill since the "new" channel they introduced around 2006. With the exception of Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends and Kids Next Door, all of the new shows either stink, try to hard, are uninspired or are just not funny. I still… Continue
We already have the release date for the Green Lantern movie (just in time for the holidays 2010), but we don't have the main role. And while it was rumored that The Notebook actor Ryan Gosling was in being considered, according to… Continue
There’s no doubt that video game adaptations are on the rise. You’d think with so many bad renditions of these games (i.e. everything Uwe Boll’s done) that production companies would stay away from them, but after seeing how much bank these games earn, it’s hard to resist. In a way, I can’t really blame them. With Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li coming… Continue

In theaters: March 6, 2009
A complex, multi-layered mystery adventure, the film is set in an alternate 1985 America in which costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of everyday society, and the “Doomsday Clock” – which charts the USA’s tension with the Soviet Union – is permanently set at five minutes to midnight. When one of his former colleagues is murdered, the washed-up but no less determined masked vigilante Rorschach sets out to… Continue

It seems that one of the hardest things to do in any medium is write an effective story that deals with spirituality in today’s society without detracting from the quality of the narrative, or having it degrade into a pompous, holier-than-thou rant. Largely, any criticisms or ideas presented are usually cut-to-ribbons in the name of better sales numbers, and chucked out there intermittently with all the technique finesse of Kanye West circa post-Katrina, resulting in a watered down,… Continue
In less than a week, Alan Moore's ticking time bomb known as Watchmen will premiere on the big screen for the first time ever. The film has been 10 years in the making. Being switched from director to director, having names like Kevin Costner, Keanu Reeves and Simon Pegg attactched. All just distant memories. Director Zack Snyder must be counting down the minutes. This is the film that will make or break him. If this fails, who will forgive him.
