There’s just something about an ax-wielding psychopath that really seems to speak to moviegoers these days, and that’s terrifying. Still, we’re not the types of lemmings to question what the public wants, and so we’ve decided that it’s time to honor the best of the big screen serial killers. The only rules for the top […]

This week, we’re taking a look at a classic horror concept, the ghost. So, we’re counting down the top 10 movie ghosts (spoiler alert: Casper doesn’t make it on this list, […]

Space, as we all know, is the final frontier. The thing is, it’s not exactly an easy frontier to navigate, which is why it’s good to have a whip to ride in on those interplanetary trips we were all told we’d be taking by now. The point of a cool spaceship is to dream about the possibilities the future holds, which is why we’re counting down the best ones we’ve seen over the years.

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 […]

So you just printed out your ballot for your office’s 85th Academy Awards prediction pool, and Yowzah! Look at all those movies! Can that many movies even come out in a single year? What’s going on here? Who the heck are the Miserables? Well relax, man! Or woman! Or neither! We’re not presuming anything here […]

Frankenweenie 3D

On October 8, 2012 By

ParaNorman with pets! A trend has been formed and followed this year by animated monster flicks. Chris Butler’s ambitious stop-motion zombie film preached acceptance, displaying the evils of a society founded on intolerance. Genndy Tartakovsky’s Hotel Transylvania admirably followed suit. Understanding the validity of such a message, Director Tim Burton evokes a similar sympathy for the unique in his latest creation. But don’t fret, seekers of originality, Frankenweenie is a creature all its own.

We’ve written this article before. In fact, we’ve written 38 variations of this article, with five leading to a third World War, three resulting in alien invasions and one resulting in the enlightenment of mankind and world peace. That one wasn’t that funny, though, so we decided to stick with this version, the one that […]

It’s so much better than you’d ever think. Just to start off, forget every preview you ever saw from ParaNorman. Personally, I was dreading sitting through this newest flick from the team that brought moviegoers Coraline. Much to my surprise, though, it turned out to be a really great film, and one I would suggest […]

Prepare your eyes, ladies and gentlemen, for what you are about to peruse contains more “bats” than the caves beneath Gotham City. The night approaches, when Bruce Wayne will once again salute the silver screen, take up the cowl, and fight an unjust foe (possibly for the last time when you consider the rumors of his death). So there’s only one question left to be asked: are you prepared? No. You most likely are not.

Dark Shadows

On May 12, 2012 By

Even vampires have family drama. Tim Burton has had a pretty busy year. With two other movies scheduled for release soon (Frankenweenie and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, which he produced), you may be wondering if Burton has let the quality of Dark Shadows fall victim to a busy work load. Sleep calmly, he hasn’t. Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp), whose family struck it rich after starting up a fishing company in Maine, has everything he could ever want when we first meet him in the 1700s. Alas, he makes a fatal mistake when he rejects the affections of Angelique (Eva Green), a servant at the Collinwood manor who also happens to be a witch.

There’s no “I” in team (we learned that the hard way during that 7th grade spelling bee), and this country was founded on teamwork. Do you think George Washington beat the British all by himself? No, John Adams held them, while his cousin Sam poured a few frosty ones. We’re a country that loves teams, […]
