Right? Isn't that the rule? Sharks have to constantly swim. A rolling stone gathers no moss. Madonna reinvents herself every three years. It's what you have to do if you want to stay alive or relevant.
This has been on my mind for a while now. With the Matt Reaves -- director of the love it or hate it CLOVERFIELD -- directed LET ME IN -- a second adaption of the novel already made into a film LET THE RIGHT ONE IN -- I've heard a lot of talk about "why are they remaking this movie? It's only been a couple years since the original came out" and "are they really out of ideas?" "Why can't people come up with their own movies?" I've heard this from people I know, people… Continue
Last night I started a forum called "should the Star Wars prequels be remade." Naturally, because this site is awesome, it raised a heated, but civil argument. Most people said they believe that the prequels should never be remade. So I have decided to take you scene by scene, reason by reason why the prequels should not only be remade but things that…
Most of you are going to look at this article and ask, "Why does Jason Reitman need a defense? Hasn't this guy been nominated for Oscars for every films since 'Juno'?" If you're asking this, this article is probably not for you.
This defense comes from the bashing he and his latest film, "Up in the Air," get from a certain crowd of people, my crowd of people, the kind of people who hate FOX Searchlight-style faux-indie films that are manufactured to appeal to a demographic…
In case you missed our live streams from San Diego Comic Con's famous Hall H, where all the big news and sneaks go down, I bring to you the biggest day of panels at the convention. This is where fans got to first see footage from Marvel's Captain America and Thor films along with a few surprises about the… Continue
I dunno about most... but I'm thinking this is shaping up to be a really good adaption based on what I've seen from the trailers. Of the several people that have seen early showings of the movie they all say that the trailers add more of a "creepy" vibe, but that the movie itself is much better in terms of real dramatic moments. Something I personally loved about the the original. It was already scary because of the subject matter, but it was the performances that made it such a great… Continue

All right, I've wanted to do this blog for a very, very long time. It's a question that ponders the mind of every movie fanatic on the Internet especially the ones on sites like Ain't It Cool News, Cinematical, CHUD, and Spill Movie Reviews. Are we seeing the slow death of originality in film? Well, I'm going to try and guess the answer as best as I can.
I would say that we are not really experiencing a "death" of originality, it's more or less a period where movie studios are being… Continue
Set on my ever-continuing quest to see every Best Picture winning film, I selected the romantic comedy film Shakespeare in Love to be my next target, and its a film that conflicts me. On the one hand, I hate it when a film takes major liberties with historical accuracy to the point of pure fiction (see Pearl Harbor and
Mel Gibson films for example) and this film is a large example of this.
However, I thoroughly…
