Mars Needs Moms Blu-ray Review
Mars Needs Moms   Mars Needs Moms Blu-ray Review
(Roger Longenbach)  08/05/2011 7:32 AM EDT
The latest and probably last feature from Imagemovers Digital (Polar Express, A Christmas Carol) is the home release of Mars Needs Moms in an amazing value combo pack.  Imagemovers specialized in performance capture CGI - animating the characters over digitally captured wireframes of the actors themselves acting out the movie (more on that lat...

The Change-Up Theatrical Review
The Change-Up   The Change-Up Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  08/04/2011 7:22 AM EDT
Not much to say positive about The Change UP a lame film that tries every old trick in the book to grab your attention and make you think it's comedy.  The film suffers from ‘I've seen that before' and a sick humor syndrome.  If you think that watching a baby try to stick its hand in a blender is funny, then this is your kind of wei...

Rise of the Planet of the Apes Theatrical Review
Rise of the Planet of the Apes   Rise of the Planet of the Apes Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  08/04/2011 7:19 AM EDT
Do you have your Action/Adventure fill for summer, or are you ready for more?  Try Rise of the Planet of the Apes for a thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat.  I like the way Director Rupert Wyatt makes sure each exciting scene develops with emotion, first creating interest, then suspense finalizing in aggressive thrills. &...

Overboard Blu-ray Review
Overboard   Overboard Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  08/01/2011 9:59 PM EDT
In the 1980's there were a few hits that not only helped shape the career of certain actors but also left a mark on the industry as well. In the vein of the traditional romantic comedy, Overboard shines an adult light on a genre that has become marred over the recent years with whiny twenty-something's all trying to be as independent as possible. &...

Be Cool Blu-ray Review
Be Cool   Be Cool Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  08/01/2011 9:42 PM EDT
Once in a while you get an off-beat comedy that attempts to tell a unique story which doesn't always resonate with audiences. Back in 1995 Get Shorty starring John Travolta as ex-mob thug Chili Palmer made something of a splash in the movie industry. Travolta's character in the film did his best to navigate his way through the world of Holl... Read More

The Smurfs Theatrical Review
The Smurfs   The Smurfs Theatrical Review
(Nathan M Rose)  07/29/2011 9:01 AM EDT
Those lovable Smurfs have finally hit the big screen this summer with their first theatrical live-action-film, simply entitled, The Smurfs. The Smurfs follows the adventures of Papa Smurf and his fellow Smurfs as they are sucked through a magical voxrtex from their world into our modern day society.  However, to add to their troubles, the...

Attack The Block Theatrical Review
Attack The Block   Attack The Block Theatrical Review
(Marco Duran)  07/28/2011 10:35 PM EDT
The South London housing estates, or "blocks", have always been a great place to stage a film, especially to a Yankee like me.  When I think of London, I think of some place nice and clean and free of crime where you can walk down the alley after having a few pints at the local pub and not feel the least bit afraid of being accosted....

Cowboys & Aliens Theatrical Review
Cowboys & Aliens   Cowboys & Aliens Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  07/28/2011 10:35 AM EDT
Strap your six-gun to your waist, tie the string around your leg and ride over to see the movie Cowboys & Aliens a rip snorting account of a universe invasion.  Seriously now, there will be no guns allowed in the movie theatre, not even toy type.  If you want some action with great special effects that make a film come alive with awes...

Take Me Home Tonight Blu-ray Review
Take Me Home Tonight   Take Me Home Tonight Blu-ray Review
(Roger Longenbach)  07/27/2011 12:32 PM EDT
It seems that the 80s have returned to Hollywood.  From Hot Tub Time Machine to this movie, the retro style of 1980s seems to be the in thing.  In fact, when I started screening the movie, I thought they were trying to copy Hot Tub Time Machine, but in fact, this movie was made long before it.  This movie was filmed in 2007 and took ...

The Devil's Double Theatrical Review
The Devil's Double   The Devil's Double Theatrical Review
(Marco Chacon)  07/22/2011 12:54 PM EDT
Uday Hussein, eldest son of Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussein, was allegedly known for torturing national athletes who failed to win.  He was known for kidnapping school girls off the streets of Baghdad and raping, and perhaps sometimes murdering them.  He was called a psychopath by Egyptian leader, Mubarak.  The story, The Devil's ...
