In Hollywood, there’s the good, the bad and the ugly. But what about those actors and actresses that fall between the cracks? Those noble few who constantly make movies in spite of the fact that you just can’t decide whether you like them or they really suck. Well, we decided to devote this week to […]

For those of you who couldn’t make it to Comic Con this year, fear not! We’ve taken the past week to wade through all the announcements and the biggest news to come out of San Diego, and managed to put together a list of seven big announcements that relate to movies and television. Trust us […]

“No dream is too big, and no dreamer too small.” Turbo is one of the most pleasant surprises I’ve had at the theater this year. At first glance, it looks like a cheap rip off of Pixar’s Cars, only with a snail in its lead role. Not only that, but that snail is voiced by […]

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 […]

The “Why you should now boycott Cartoon Network immediately” piece. So I was on my way home from campus one fine morning not long ago when I decided it was the perfect moment to contemplate reviewable material. Of course, I wanted to stay away from the garbage that’s already been torn a few “new ones,” bias and all that. But at the same time, I was a little tired of praising the likes of Arrow and Modern Family again and again. So I chose to wake up early one Saturday morning to catch a glimpse of Green Lantern: The Animated Series. To succinctly sum up my first experience—I loved it. I was a kid again, and man, have visuals come far.

How times have changed. I remember when I was a kid: School for five long days every week, waking up at 7 a.m. for what now seems like a totally irrelevant purpose. But this is what made sleeping in on Saturday all the better, right? “Absolutely not,” is the answer to that rhetorical trapdoor. I awoke with wide eyes each and every sixth day of the week to witness the exploits of my favorite superheroes, and if you’re even part nerd—so did you.

With contributions from Patrick Sessoms and James M. It’s the holiday season, and that’s a magical time indeed, one full of cheer and the spirit of giving. Even though global recession has ravaged the worldwide economy, and even though climate change has melted the ice caps and made puddles of our once-proud snowmen, and even […]

With the news of Michael Fassbender being attached to an Assassins Creed film and now Tom Hardy joining a Splinter Cell flick, it’s starting to look more and more like video game movies might be the new comic book movies. This lead us to wonder which actors out there might be best-suited to play pixelated […]

The Summer of Movie Summers has effectively concluded. The Avengers was a sensation, effectively crippling the box office and providing the proverbial bar for all future superhero/summer flicks to aspire. Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man was appropriately named. And (choking back tears as I write this) Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy was concluded in remarkable… no, astounding… better yet, phenomenal fashion as The Dark Knight Rises (against seemingly insurmountable odds) exceeded all expectations.

The Avengers stormed onto the silver screen in May and currently resides at the 3-spot in highest grossing movies of all time. The unhealthy level of anticipation for The Amazing Spider-Man and The Dark Knight Rises slowly propagates. And with discussions circulating about the future of comic book films, what could be more appropriate than contemplating such possibilities ourselves?

I’m not angry, just disappointed. It’s hard watching a movie that squanders its potential, especially when it pairs two of the hottest commodities Hollywood currently has to offer and tosses them into a story that should make the most of their talents. It’s not that I’m angry that I sat through Safe House, though—I’m just […]
