Whether you are in love or not, male or female, we have all come to appreciate a good fairytale at some point in our lives. Each generation has one that they hold on to from their youth or perspective. But the rarest of them all is a live romantic ... Read More

In 2006, Zach Snyder showed us that even if he wasn't necessarily a genius innovator in terms of narratives (he does some of his best work with other people's properties), he was an innovative film-maker in terms of technique. His adaptation of Frank Miller's super-stylized (every page is a splash-page) 300--the story of the Greek battl... Read More

Liam Neeson (Taken, A Million Ways To Die In The West) plays Federal air Marshal William Marks in the Blu-ray release of Non-Stop, an action thriller that will keep you guessing for most of the hour and forty five minute running time.  While the film feeds into our fears in a post 9/11 world, for Agent Marks, it's just another day at the offic...

Remakes of classic science fiction movies are usually more hit than miss because good science fiction manages a timelessness that doesn't demand a remake. Yes, special effects have come a long way—but leaving out the added stuff, did the refresh of Star Wars really help it? I don't think so. The original took us to a galaxy far, far away... Read More

Now, just imagine you're weightless, in the middle of the ocean, surrounded by tiny little seahorses. No matter how I tried, It still didn't come to me. It is however, hard to believe that it has been 10 years since Fox Searchlight Pictures released this little $400,000 film, which broke out and became the little film that could, raking in...
