Film Review: Jupiter Ascending (★★½)

After the atrocity that was Cloud Atlas, (sorry to its few fans) I expected Andy and Lana Wachowski to deliver a near-three hour opus of space moralizing with excessive special effects and utterly stupid writing. Thankfully, I wasn’t disappointed. That’s all there in their latest, Jupiter Ascending, but it looks so glorious and the actors are […]

TRAILER: STILLS: Presented by Roadside Attractions Directed by Guillaume Canet Written by Guillaume Canet and James Gray New York, 1974. Fifty-year-old Chris (Clive Owen) has just been released on good behavior after several years in prison following a gangland murder.

Oz the Great and Powerful (**)

I hate to be the bearer of upsetting news, but returning to Dorothy Gale’s home away from home wasn’t even remotely fulfilling. Sam Raimi, a director so daringly spectacular when pushing the horror genre well past its maniacal tolerance, exudes neither the passion nor aesthetic boldness required for an endeavor as monumental as helming an […]

New ‘Oz: The Great and Powerful’ Trailer is Full of Hope and Magic

A new trailer has arrived for Disney’s Oz: The Great and Powerful, and this one has me a bit more optimistic than the last. James Franco stars as the “wizard” who is whisked away to Oz via a tornado, where he meets three witches (Mila Kunis’s Theodora, Rachel Weisz’s Evanora, and Michelle Williams’s Glinda). All […]

New Images from Sam Raimi’s ‘Oz The Great and Powerful’

On Thursday we brought you the first trailer for Sam Raimi’s Oz The Great and Powerful, which will tell the origin story behind Oscar Diggs, the man they would eventually come to call the Wonderful Wizard of Oz (James Franco). Terence, representing the site at Comic-Con, also delivered an intimate press conference with the director and a […]

Ted (***)

One of the most different “bromance” movies in recent memory, ‘Ted’ is the story of the love between a boy and his teddy bear. Of course, the bear is one that’s magically brought to life and they grow up into vulgar stoners. Seth MacFarlane’s first foray into films is more or less ‘Family Guy: The […]

Plot Details about the Wachowski’s ‘Jupiter Rising’ arrive online!

The Wachowski siblings’ projects have been very successful at not only redefining science fiction narratives, but in the secrecy their films maintain up until opening. Even the dreadful Speed Racer was able to keep all of it’s plot secrets hidden until the movie came out. But given the high profile nature of their next two […]

Red Band Trailer for Seth McFarlane’s ‘Ted’!

I like the TV work of Seth McFarlane. It’s hardly mature, but ‘Family Guy’ can always make me laugh, and ‘things like ‘American Dad’ and ‘The Cleveland Show’ are above average entertainment. As such, I’ve been keenly interested in his jump to feature films. Instead of taking the easy route and doing a ‘Family Guy’ […]
