If past history is anything that indicates the dog days of summer, it is when the films that did not make the summer blockbuster cut are dumped into theaters.Most of these movies are throw-away movies and do not deserve a second look.  However, this year seems to be the exception with many great films coming at the end of summer, and &quo...

Everyone loves a good mystery. We can't help but be curious about something we can't figure out right away. Who can say where it comes from?  It is just an innate quality that most human beings share. Lately in the entertainment world we have seen something of a rebirth of the classic mystery. Mainly it has been within the sci-fi/fantasy realm... Read More

Takers Theatrical Review
Takers   Takers Theatrical Review
(Stephen Compall)  08/26/2010 8:36 PM EDT
Forever may he be cursed.  You might not even notice, but Hayden Christensen (Star Wars: Episode II, Jumper) joins a crew mostly of his thespian superiors for Takers, a film that begins as a competently executed heist flick, and turns into something quite other than that.The trouble with all heist films is that we're expected to view the p...

(Stephen Compall)  08/19/2010 7:49 PM EDT
As if we wish to relive it again, we make the children of humanity grow up much as humanity itself did, steeped in superstition. We are only to be granted the ability to tell the difference between fantasy, wishes, and reality later on; hence, the creation Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kenny. The series has now been turned into a feature leng... Read More

The Expendables is a no holds barred, make no apologies, straight up action flick.

We have assembled a who's who of action stars, ranging from the early eighties and right up to the present. Wit... Read More

(Chris Rebholz)  08/14/2010 10:25 PM EDT
Believe it or not but the growth of the comic book movie has been going on for about the past 20 years now. It began, for some of you, with Tim Burtons Batman. That movie was a great success. It was able to spawn a few sequels, regardless of whether or not they were any good. It caught Hollywood's attention and we started to see more movies like th... Read More

It launched the careers of certain actors in the show who now appear in hits like "How I Met Your Mother". It also spawned a spin-o... Read More
