    ‘The Hangover Part III’ gets a New Trailer!

    It’s no secret that I’m not wild about “The Hangover” films. The first one was an amusing but overrated diversion to me, and I really disliked the sequel intensely. Chief among my issues with that one was that it simply rehashed every moment of the first flick, to diminishing returns. This time...

    SUNDANCE: Before Midnight (***½)

    It’s hard for lightning to strike twice, let alone three times, but somehow the team of Julie Delpy, Ethan Hawke, and Richard Linklater have done just that with Before Midnight. Almost two decades since they first charmed audiences in Before Sunrise (1995) and nearly a full decade since they returned with the...

    Richard Linklater has shot ‘Before Midnight’ with Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke!

    Over the last few months or so, there was a juicy rumor floating around that the planned second sequel to the indie favorite ‘Before Sunrise’ was already being shot by filmmaker Richard Linklater. Of course it was starring Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke again, with the trio co-writing the script once more,...

    [REC]³ Génesis (**½)

    Most of the time when you’re dealing with the third film in a franchise, the easiest way to enjoy it is to have been a fan of the previous installments. In the unique case of ‘³ Génesis’ however, fans of the prior movies may not have nearly as good a time as...

    The Dark Knight Rises (****)

    Against almost impossible hype, anticipation, and expectations, Christopher Nolan has managed to deliver not just the best Batman film to date, but also the best superhero film of all time with ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ (while also once again elevating the playing field for what the genre can be at its pinnacle)....

    The first reviews for ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ are in!

    I’ll be seeing ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ tomorrow, but late last night (3AM here on the East Coast, though it was midnight over in Hollywood when the embargo came down) the first critical response to Christopher Nolan’s conclusion to the Batman trilogy came in, and they’re about as enthusiastic as you’d expect....

    Etan Cohen is now trying to write the script for ‘Ghostbusters 3’?

    I love both of the ‘Ghostbusters’ films (obviously the first one more than the sequel), but the more I hear about Dan Aykroyd’s almost desperate attempts to make a third movie happen, the more I just want to use the Power Hour to hell him to “Stop Making It Happen”. It doesn’t...

    Want to see the Production Notes for ‘The Dark Knight Rises’?

    One of the cooler things about going to press screenings is that you get your hands on Production Notes. Sometimes it’s only a dozen pages or so, but sometimes it’s a big packet of information and goodies about the flick you’re about to see. Lucky for you guys, Warner Brothers is taking...

    Here’s the IMAX Poster for ‘The Dark Knight Rises’!

    This might surprise some of you, but I’ve only gone to see a handful of theatrical films in the IMAX format (I’ve seen dozens at museums, but that’s a different story). They include the likes of ‘Avatar’, ‘The Matrix Reloaded’, ‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol’, ‘Prometheus’, and ‘Spider-Man 2’…along with a press...

    Sequel to ‘Before Sunrise’ and ‘Before Sunset’ is about to start shooting

    I’m not sure that the trio of co-writer/director Richard Linklater and co-writers/stars Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy get enough credit for the films ‘Before Sunrise’ and ‘Before Sunset’. The mere fact that almost everyone agrees that the previously assumed to be needless sequel was just about as good as the original, well…that’s...

    Pair of TV spots for The Dark Knight Rises!

    Get set for the entire world to slowly became inundated with material for ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, and that includes The Awards Circuit (as if it you’d want it any differently). Television isn’t immune to it either, and today we have 2 of the TV spots that have been playing for the...

    Here’s a new Poster for The Dark Knight Rises!

    Believe it or not, we’re now only about 2 months away from the conclusion of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ is about as highly anticipated a film as there’s been in some time, and interestingly enough Warner Brothers hasn’t had a marketing deluge go down for the movie yet....

    The Human Centipede in danger of not becoming a trilogy!

    I know some of you are as morbidly curious about ‘The Human Centipede’ franchise (yes, it’s a full fledged franchise now) as I am, so this news of tension over script issues between filmmaker Tom Six and his would be returning star Dieter Laser might be of some interest. Apparently, lawsuits are...

    Another sequel to “Before Sunrise” is in the works?

    Before Sunrise is one of my favorite romantic films of all time, and somehow its sequel Before Sunset managed to be just about as good.  The chemistry between co-writers/stars Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke and with co-writer/director Richard Linklater works so well.  News has come via Vulture that another movie may be...
