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 […]

Happy Thanksgiving, dear reader, from all of us here at Stars & Popcorn! We stand by our traditions on this site. Ever since great-great grandpa, the Reverend Obadiah Jefferson Sessoms, first awarded two stars and three popcorn to a kinetoscope he found at the Chicago World’s Fair, we’ve been dedicated to sitting through good and […]

There have been some absolutely God-awful big-screen adaptations of classic cartoons. In fact, we made a list of the worst, and pretty much every one of them was on there. Why are they all so bad, though? Well, for one thing, they try to get their original fans (all of whom are adults now) to […]

A Patrick Sessoms and Joseph Hunter joint. We all love a good high drama, a film that explores something deep and meaningful, that waxes philosophical about humanity while simultaneously serving as an unflinching critique of its excesses and social discrepancies. These movies make us feel, make us laugh and cry in catharsis as we distract […]

Perhaps the biggest news to come out of Comic Con is that the next Man of Steel movie is going to feature Superman and Batman going toe-to-toe, which has risen the biggest question of the year: Who is going to play the next Batman? Christian Bale has announced that there’s no way he’ll be returning […]

Even Zombie Jeff Bridges can’t save this.

This was a film that had completely dodged my radar. I was aware of its existence, yes. But, other than the actors, I didn’t see much in it to grab my attention. Sadly, these assumptions proved true. It’s not that R.I.P.D. is a bad movie. There’s just nothing noteworthy about it. It’s just another one of those summer flops.

“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 […]

I didn’t think Hollywood would be able to top 2012 when it came to comic book movies. Lo and behold, though, I was wrong. With Iron Man 3 kicking off the summer movie season in just over a week, I decided to take a look all the films coming out this year, and I was […]

That that, Flintstones. Change can be a dangerous thing, but with any great risk there can be a great reward. Nothing encompasses this message better than The Croods, which is perhaps one of the best films to come out of DreamWorks Animation in a good, long time. It tells the story of a family of […]

When it comes to comic book movies, Marvel is the big dog. They’re absolutely destroying the competition and not only that, they’re kicking them while they’re down too.

DC comics needs to get its head in the game. A little over a year ago they launched what they called “The New 52” and with it came their chance to show Marvel what they were made of. Then The Avengers came and reminded us that when it comes to movies, they have Batman and that’s about it
