When it comes to movies, cops are usually the good guys. Every so often, though, there comes an officer of the law that abuses his (or her) power like it was a red-headed stepchild. With Sabotage coming out this week, we wanted to honor those dirty cops who take what they want and usually leave […]

The Best Films of 2013

On January 27, 2014 By

True to January’s mythological namesake, we find ourselves each year looking forward to all that’s to come, and also lingering on all that has passed: the good and the bad. If ever there was a hodgepodge of a year, 2013 was it. Take a moment to think back. This year was absolutely all over the […]

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…

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 […]

Who knew movies about social reform could be so awesome? The bar was set pretty high for director Neil Blomkamp after he burst onto the scene with District 9, a movie that was easily one of the best 2009 had to offer, but it seems the South African has done it again with his newest […]

Humans have long been fascinated with the phenomenon of death. What happens to us after we die? What happens to our souls, if souls exist? Can a dead person be resurrected? Can we talk to the dead? All these and many more questions have bewitched us for centuries past. And the motion picture industry wasn’t […]

As you all know (yes, all of you), once a week we put together a ridiculous list of the top 10 movies sharing a common theme or motif. This week, we’re mixing it up because we couldn’t find 10 live-action fairy tale movies that we could in good conscience call “good.” Instead, in preparation for […]

It’s February, which means that most of us have abandoned our hopes of a svelte figure for the new year, and with good reason: Exercising is hard work. It’s a lot easier just sitting on the couch a sobbing into a carton of ice cream about how I’ll never be as beautiful as the people […]

Movies, right? There sure are a lot of them! Why, just last year alone there were at least 20! And with all the stresses of everyday life getting you down, who has time to sift through them all to decide which ones are worth marking on your calendar and which ones you can skip? Well […]

In early January of 2012, the Stars & Popcorn brain trust got together for a little old-fashioned prognosticatin’. Three of us – Joseph Hunter, Patrick Sessoms and James M. – peered into the company crystal ball to take a look at the following 12 months’ worth of moving pictures, and we attempted to predict the […]

If they keep saying “Jason Bourne,” we might eventually believe it’s a Bourne movie. In increasing numbers over the last several years, we’ve seen an unholy triumvirate of reboots, re-imaginings and unnecessary sequels to beloved film franchises.
