Marvel Studios does it again!  Cliche? Yes, and yes.  About that...We begin by meeting Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) as a young boy (not) coping with his mother's death, and abducted by an alien ship. Rather than deliver him (to whom, we have yet to discover…his extraterrestrial father, Jason, or one of his foes, perhaps)... Read More

One of Ancient Greece's most popular myths is turned on its head with Brett Ratner's telling of Hercules. In Ratner's account, the son of Zeus is no more than a leader of a band of cut-throat mercenaries, working their way through life, until they each have enough gold to retire into a life they all desire.Once the predictable narrative that seems ...

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....

Sex Tape Theatrical Review
Sex Tape   Sex Tape Theatrical Review
(Sean Ferguson)  07/18/2014 8:41 AM EST
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

(Michelle Koesten)  07/07/2014 9:06 AM EST
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
