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…

See, the whole problem with our top 10 list this week is no one wants to use the phrase “Top 10 Terrorists.” In fact, I’m pretty sure it’s against our site charter. Though to be fair, I was pretty hungover when we were going over that whole thing.

Winner Joseph Gordon-Levitt This kid has come a long way since his days on 3rd Rock from the Sun, but let’s be honest: We all saw this coming. 2012 was an incredible year at the movies for the guy. He partnered up with Batman, grew up to be Bruce Willis and rode his bike really, […]

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 […]

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 […]

And Ubisoft Motion Pictures is not letting up. Very recently, Collider reported (and Variety confirmed) that Tom Hardy has been chosen to headline the game developer’s Splinter Cell flick. The Dark Knight Rises actor will play every gamer’s favorite operative Sam Fisher in a tale to be spun by The International scribe Eric Singer. While no studio is currently attached to the endeavor, fans have no cause to doubt the production’s progression. Think about it: Who’s gonna say no to Bane?

Have you ever sat down to watch a movie or TV show and absent-mindedly read the opening credits, only to see a familiar name flash across the screen? “That’s funny,” you say. “I recognize that name from my secret fetish porn collection, but what’s she doing in a Disney movie?” It’s as if people in […]

Five viewings of The Dark Knight Rises and it’s still not enough. So at the risk of being excessive, here’s another freaking article about it. It seems I catch something new every time, some tiny, subtle nuance. For some showings, I went into the theater just hoping to escape from life’s trivialities. Others were analytical undertakings, and boy, do I have stuff to tell you. [...]

Ah, the first hint of a chill in the morning breeze, the distant smell of a wood-burning fireplace exiting its hibernation, the tiniest glimmer of orange hue on the maple leaves… These are things we at Stars & Popcorn don’t know much about because we’re based in Florida. Still, if Twitter’s trending topics and the […]

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.
