It’s been a classic rule of Hollywood for the last few decades: Video games do not make for good movies. We’ve seen it countless times, the atrocious Super Mario Bros. movie, Doom, and all of Uwe Boll’s directing career. But there’s so much great source material hidden in the video game industry, there just has to be a good movie waiting. But I’m going to take that one step further. Rather than sifting through the hundreds of action driven video games, let’s take a look at the best attempts at horror. Surprisingly, this is a genre that is not delved into as much as it should. And it is October after all…

The battle against remakes is one that movie nerds are never going to win, especially when it comes to horror flicks. I know most of you out there are of the mindset that any remake must be crap, and to a certain degree you might be right. However, there have been some damn fine remakes […]

So, everyone pretty much freaked out when it was announced that J.J. Abrams was not directing Star Trek 3. However, we say fear not! As this is the film industry, this sort of thing happens all the time, and the results are usually fine. That doesn’t mean that it’s going to be all Vulcans and […]

I’m not talking about Lex Luthor or Brainiac or anything like that. The sequel is supposed to feature Superman taking on the only man who has ever defeated him, […]

Video games and movies seem to have a hard time mixing. However, as huge nerds, we still hold out hope that Hollywood will get it right, and with Assassins Creed and Splinter Cell on their way to production, the video game movie might just be the next comic book movie (in other words, a big deal).

With Man of Steel hitting theaters, I’ve been thinking about all the comic book movies that have come before it. Sure, there have been some great ones, like The Avengers, but there have also been some bad ones along the way. So, with Superman getting a new chance to be everything he can be, we […]

Comic books are a hot commodity right now, and that’s partially why we launched a sister site only focusing on funny books. With the recent announcement that The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is being picked up by ABC, it got our minds thinking about other comic book TV shows that would be awesome. So, we thought […]

Some things are sacred. However, that’s never stopped Hollywood before. This time around, the bigwigs and studio execs announced that they’re moving forward on an Escape from New York prequel and potential reboot of the movie. Before everyone starts screaming about how they can’t do it: It’s done. There’s no sense fighting it. The best […]
