(Marco Chacon)  06/09/2014 4:20 PM EDT
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

And I know it's trueThat visions are seldom all they seem….. When it comes to the tale of Sleeping Beauty, the previous visions are definitely not what they have seemed. With the current release of Disney's "Maleficent", it seems as if the fairytale of our youth was a simplified, one sided tall tale. Yes, as we all know, t... 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...

(Nathan M Rose)  05/22/2014 11:42 AM EDT
X-Men: Days of Future Past can best be summed up with a quote from one of my favorite movies, Total Recall (1990). "I've got to hand it to you… that's the best mindf**k yet."
