HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE TO THE PHOTOS

I’m predicting that Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is going to be the movie that surprises the hell out of everyone this summer.  Or praying, really.  At the very least, it’ll be neat to see how Douglas Adams’ classic sci-fi comedy book is realized with more than the 200 quid the BBC spent on the … Continue reading

DODGING MORE BALLS

Dodgeball was an enjoyable film. It was funny enough, and actually had a couple of really great jokes – I’m partial to ESPN 8 – The Ocho. But does it need a sequel? Fox thinks so. At least that’s the word from a scooper to Coming Soon!, a guy who goes by the unlikely name … Continue reading

BEHIND THE SCENES: CHRONICLES OF NARNIA

I have to admit, outside of the Lord of the Rings trilogy (and the Deathstalker movies, naturally), I’m not really much of a swords-and-sorcery guy. Which means that not only do the endless invitations to join the local NERO chapter fall on deaf ears, but the numerous fantasy films rushing into production seeking to capitalize … Continue reading

TRAILER: SIN CITY

I know a lot of movie and comic fans aren’t particularly sold on the live-action adaptation of Frank Miller’s Sin City from filmmaker Robert Rodriguez. Whether they’re just not moist about the notion of a panel-by-panel reconstruction of Miller’s graphic novels using humans (and Devon Aoki), or if they were personally soured by the experience … Continue reading

TRAILER: HOSTAGE

When not spending time making unnecessary cameos (see: Ocean’s 12) or sequels to crap comedies (don’t see: The Whole Ten Yards), megastar Bruce Willis does still occasionally dabble in the hard-nosed cop action that made him a marquee name in the first place. Such as the upcoming Hostage, based on the novel by Robert Crais. … Continue reading

ANOTHER BAT SIGHTING

The teaser poster for Batman Begins premiered online late last week, depicting an iconic image of a hunched Dark Knight sort of hovering before a fiery stormfront (see it HERE).  Now the international poster has popped up, and instead of a shadowy snapshot of Bale in costume Photoshopped onto a fearsome sky, we find him … Continue reading

BABYLON AND ON

Here’s my thesis: J Michael Straczynski has the power of hypnosis. I can’t imagine how else people think he’s such hot shit, frankly. The guy’s not awful, but he’s not great. I mean, his Amazing Spider-Man comics are being treated like they came down from the mountain with Moses, yet they’re almost all terrible. The … Continue reading

MARTIANS LAND FRIDAY

I don’t know if Steven Spielberg is going for some kind of Guiness record for Biggest Blockbuster Turned Around In Shortest Amount of Time, but his new version of War of the Worlds is coming damn soon. The movie came together this summer and will be out next summer, and while there’s still extensive location … Continue reading

RENNY GOES TO THE MOON

Let’s be honest, fans of hairy shapeshifters are not exactly inundated with quality werewolf movies.  Ever since David Naughton became a hungry canine in American Werewolf in London, the only decent werewolf flicks have been low-budget entries that skulked in under the radar like Dog Soldiers and Gingers Snaps (and Wes Craven’s appropriately titled Cursed … Continue reading

THEY’VE GOT (INDEPENDENT) SPIRIT

While I was away in Berlin the Independent Spirit Award nominations were announced. These are the kinds of films that you’ll often find me slobbering over here on the site, and this year’s nominees are a list of exactly some of the films that have me saying that 2004 is, pound for pound, one of … Continue reading
