Hollywood, of late, seems to be running to the safety of classics to help churn out a collection of new flicks to entertain the masses. Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters epitomizes the trend. Based loosely on the classic children's Grimm fairytale; Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters follows the brother and sister from the Germanic tale to adulthood. D... Read More

Outside of a small cult following, 2000 AD comic book character Judge Dredd was unknown in the United States until, back in 1995, Sylvester Stallone tried to bring the character mainstream with the Judge Dredd film. The thematic elements of the comic book series were toned down for mainstream audiences, alienating the characters fans.With the resur... Read More

A Little Bit of Heaven Theatrical Review
A Little Bit of Heaven   A Little Bit of Heaven Theatrical Review
(Nathan M Rose)  05/03/2012 11:14 AM EDT
A Little Bit of Heaven is an eye opening, emotional roller coaster of a film opening this weekend against The Avengers. While the two films are geared to completely different demographics, most studios are staying away from opening against the juggernaut superhero extravaganza. Millenium Entertainent is taking a gamble, but one that will certainly ... Read More

Ever since the original Iron Man film came out in the summer of 2008, Marvel has been teasing the ultimate superhero film, The Avengers.  Now in 2012, Marvel along with Walt Disney Pictures brings this story to life.   If names such as Tony Stark, Loki, or Black Widow seem foreign to you, then you have to get ready to do some homework bef...

Typically, when a film is hyped up to the point of almost being a religious experience, it will fail to meet expectations; and only the die-hard fans will like a film despite its flaws.  However, this is the exact opposite of The Hunger Games, which is based on the New York Times bestselling young adult novel, by Suzanne Collins. The film...

(Nathan M Rose)  12/22/2011 10:32 AM EDT
"Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes" on the surface appears to be a "throw away" summer film, a haphazardly thrown together money grab, grasping at nostalgia for its acclaimed predecessor.  Much like its storied roots, however the film will shock and awe with it's stunning plot twits and revelations only adding to the mytho...

The ever-changing world has left the Muppets as just a memory and not relevant to modern day society. The Muppets have moved on to have norm... Read More
