Fast Five Theatrical Review

(Nathan M Rose)  04/28/2011 9:08 AM EST
Back in 2001, a little summer film, entitled The Fast & The Furious, was launched on moviegoers.  The film, directed by Rob Cohen (xXx), provided enough box office muscle to green light numerous sequels. Fast-forward 10 years to 2011 as Fast Five, the fifth film in the series, is set upon audiences.  Fast Five stars an ensemble cast f... Read More

Back in 1981, an eclectic movie, entitled Arthur, was unleashed on the unsuspecting public, starting Dudley Moore, Liza Minnelli, and John Gielgud.  The film went on to enjoy huge success.  Thus, it was only a matter of time until a remake was created, and that just happened to happen in the spring of 2011, by Warner Bros studios.   ...

Every couple of years, the stars align and two large Hollywood studios end up releasing similar films within a year.  In the past, it has been volcanos --   2010-2011 has brought us alien invasions.  The first one out of the gate, Skyline, was an attempt to make a glossy high-end invasion film...it failed.  Enter March 2011, Col...

Back in 2008, an indie film director, Catherine Hardwicke, made a big splash in Hollywood with the first film in the Twilight saga.   Although not liked by all, her perception of showing teenage angst and true love rocketed the film to stardom and has now become part of Hollywood lore.  She tries to strike lightning twice this spring...

Rango Theatrical Review
Rango   Rango Theatrical Review
(Nathan M Rose)  03/03/2011 10:36 AM EST
Pirates of the Caribbean's director, Gore Verbinski (The Ring), has re-teamed with Johnny Depp (Alice in Wonderland, From Hell), and some other of his pirate gang this year to bring audiences around the world, Rango.  Rango is a very strange tale of a lizard (Depp), who after spending a very unusual life in a fish tank, ends up in the Moha...

Drive Angry Theatrical Review
Drive Angry   Drive Angry Theatrical Review
(Nathan M Rose)  02/25/2011 7:57 AM EST
The first I heard of Drive Angry, I was attending Comic Con 2010.  The premise seemed likely enough to be a decent film -- Milton (Nicolas Cage; The Rock, Con-Air) breaks out of hell to save his granddaughter and to avenge the death of his daughter.   Fast forward eight months to February 25, 2011 -- Drive Angry is released to an audience...

This timeless classic Romeo and Juliet has been told time and time again in various forms throughout the ages; however, on February 11, 2011, Touchstone pictures tells the story in a new creative fashion, with garden gnomes!   The story behind Gnomeo and Juliet is quite simple – Gnomeo and Juliet are in forbidden love, and are trying to ...

During the 1980's and1990's, there were two names synonymous with action -- Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone. However, the 21st century arrived, and a new action start needed to fill the shoes left by these two action giants. For a few years, it was a bit of a toss up; but the winner has clearly been names, Jason Statham. &... Read More
