There have been a lot of movies based off of video games. It is as common today as the comic book movie. Quite frankly though, most of these movies have never been very good. They almost always come off even more cartoonish and cliché than the games they are based on.Resident Evil is a game that has been around for many years, going back to ... Read More

"Let's do some gratuitous violence". That's the motto that sums up what you can expect from The Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day. The original was a surprise hit not in theaters but on DVD in college dorm rooms. It's love of not only movies but also men who stand up and dish out justice as they see fit instantly caught on and over the ye... Read More

Smallville Blu-ray Review
Smallville: The Complete Ninth Season   Smallville Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  09/03/2010 1:07 PM EST
Superman. The name is as well known as apple pie. Even if you know nothing about who he is or where he got his start, you at least know his name. It's surprising that a fictional character could have such a broad audience. Especially considering he started out (and still is) a comic book. Comic books, as popular as they have become over the recent ... Read More

Three years ago, Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino released Grindhouse, an homage to the B slasher/zombie movies from the 1970s. Part of that homage was including trailers for "fake" movies. One of those was Machete. However, Machete was more than just a trailer at that point.The first script for Machete was written in 1993. In fact,... Read More

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

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 EST
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
