Marley Shelton (Eleventh hour) stars as Dr. Alison Lennon, a scientist who has successfully fertilized human eggs in a laboratory.  Nothing special about that, you're thinking?  Except it's 2025 and women world-wide have mysteriously stopped having the ability to conceive and bare children threatening extinction of the human race....

When it comes to creating a comedy, there are many topics one could shy away from, but Porn has never been one of them. In fact, if done right, it could lend to a fun and interesting story, with major complications. Zack and Miri made a porno that didn't do so well, and yet Don Jon did nothing but watch them…to great success. So why woul... Read More

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the follow up to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, picks up where the first movie left off.  When it starts we see the news reports discussing the spread of the simian flu worldwide and the destruction of the human race.  The movie then switches to the woods where hundreds of apes, led by Cesar portrayed via ...

Love them or hate them, you have a fairly good idea what could happen in road trip movies, before you start watching them and usually it ultimately does. Tammy, while having a little bit of originality fails to make the most of itTammy is Melissa McCarthy's (The Heat, Mike and Molly) latest character creation for the big screen.  She is a woma...

Ah, what can I say other than I just watched another really terrible movie!  This one was just bad, bad, bad--- well, unless you're are a teenager into the horror genre. The original, which I haven't seen, or should say don't remember seeing, came out in 2001 and starred well known actors Steve Zahn, Paul Walker, and Leelee Sobieski. It was wr... Read More

Looking for a wacky place to stay for the evening? If you're looking for romance it could be found at the Regent Beverly Wilshire (Pretty Woman), or are you looking for something more edgier? The Hotel Mon Signor (Four Rooms) may have some vacancy's, I know  theres always room at the Bates Motel, but I wouldn't advise staying there! The O... Read More

Once Upon A Time… That is the way these stories start. It doesn't matter how old you are. 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
