Father and son Smith play father and son Raige in M. Night Shyamalan’s sci-fi tale of survival on an abandoned and hostile future Earth. Smith movies are generally pretty good, and M. Night has, in the distant past, made good movies too. Is this a match made in the stars? (Spoilers: Not really)
There is no good reason why this film franchise has lasted this long, but it has. Now, after the unexpectedly great Fast Five, the Fast crew are in London, chasing a similarly fast and furious baddie. Has this franchise finally run out of road?
JJ Abrams brilliantly rejuvenated Star Trek in 2009, and now he and his crew have returned, and are looking to expand on his reestablished universe, and continue their fun trek through the stars…
Marvel Studios kicked off their movie experiment with Iron Man in 2008, and began the road to Avengers with 2010′s Iron Man 2, so it’s only fitting that Iron Man 3 is the first post Avengers movie, and is used to kick-off Marvel’s Phase 2. With a new writer and director calling the shots, does Iron Man 3 crack under the weight of expectation?
Like him or not, Tom Cruise doesn’t generally make bad movies. His flicks are slick productions, designed to be Tom Cruise vehicles. Oblivion, Cruise’s return to sci-fi, is no different, but is it any good?
After the tremendous success of staging and directing the London Olympics’ opening ceremony, which included chucking James Bond and The Queen out of a helicopter, Danny Boyle now brings us the trippy London based heist thriller he was working on at the same time. But is it entrancing?
Having helped revive the Fast & Furious franchise, WWE Champion The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) has been injected in to the GI Joe franchise. G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra was pretty darn bad, incredibly dumb, shoddy effects, and deviated too far from my understanding of the “source material” (I mostly played with Star Wars toys). You can’t polish a turd, but can chucking Rocky glitter over one work?
Set thirty years before The Wizard Of Oz, and released nearly seventy five years after, this prequel comes to the screen via the distinct lens of Sam Raimi. But is it in fact great and powerful, or is it actually lame and disappointing?
John McClane has run out of bits of America to blow up, so flies to Russia to rescue and reconnect with his estranged son…and naturally gets caught up in some explosive shenanigans. Is this a good day to Die Hard, or a good day to quit?
Wreck-It Ralph finally opens in Europe, so I can review it just in time for the DVD release stateside. But has it been worth the wait?
It’s a post-zombie-apocalypse world. R is a zombie, Julie isn’t, and there’s love in the air. Is this simply Twilight with zombies, or is there more life to this movie than you would expect?
A dozen years since the last time he directed a human on screen, Robert Zemeckis brings us this tale of an alcoholic pilot who miraculously prevents a plane from crashing, and then his life comes under the microscope. Is Zemeckis’ return to live action worth the decade plus wait?
