I have to admit I was a bit suspicious of this from the start. In fact, I do respect the making of The Passion of Christ. It's a powerful story, and Gibson's brand of historical accuracy takes some guts to pull off. It is also important to be able to separate motive and intent from art; analyzing things without authorial intent is a valid a... Read More

Sunshine is a British science fiction film showing the sun is starting to die.  A team of astronauts is sent with a massive bomb to try to reignite it. For a movie that focuses its energy on being smart, this sounds pretty dumb.  How can any terrestrial bomb reignite a star?  The answer is, "it can't", and the team knew... Read More

After it was established that Harry Potter was wildly popular, one would speculate someone was dispatched to the children's section of the bookstore to see what else they could option.  Certainly, the formula is pretty well established: take a popular children's series and give it the deluxe CGI treatment and consider that your casting...

It is that time of year again when the studios drop all of their films that they feel will not make it during the competitive box office seasons of spring, summer or fall.  However, once in a while a film comes along that catches everyone off guard and provides the movie-going experience that patrons expect, such is the case with&nbs...

I read The Road and determined from the reviews that the reasonably well made, fairly faithful movie version was simply not at the top of my to-do list. I think it was Slate's headline: 'Prepare to be bludgeoned' that made me go feel that way. When I saw part of the trailer for The Book of Eli that included a sudden Zatiochi-style blade... Read More

It turns out you cannot count James Cameron out.  It appeared kind of telling that the trailers for the movie had to tell you who this guy was and why we should care.  The likely 20-something targets for the movie were maybe 10 when Titanic came out (2007), and think of Terminator as an ol...
