A review by Inkoo Kang…
This film deserved to do better.
Our look at one of the four greatest Twilight films ever made.
Although it’s the black sheep of the Tarantino film family, hopefully it will get its due with this excellent Blu-ray release.
It’s by far the best father-son fighting-robot movie I’ve seen this week.
It’s so good, I held my pee for at least 90 minutes because I didn’t want to miss anything.
Unfortunately, this “Teen Wolf” is just a typical slick MTV show with no character.
I knew when I saw it this was something special, but it kind of took me two viewings to process it all.
I don’t think it’s great or memorable, but as one of the unorthodox releases this weekend, it may interest some of you.
Knight and Day PG-13, 109min.,2010 Cast: Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Peter Sarsgard, Viola Davis, and Paul Dano Directed by James Mangold Screenplay by Patrick O'Neill Knight and Day evaporates from the mind like most summer action flicks once the end credits roll. Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz star as Miller, the reflex quick spy, and June, the tough but at times ditsy blonde – two roles they both can do in their sleep at this point. Miller and June are involved in a worldwide espionage plot that they find way over their heads, giving excuse for over the top car case sequences and fireball explosions that will come in the next 2 hours. With them filling script flaws with pseudo-action chemistry and the occasional information of character story and plot connection, action comedy has never looked this boring.MORE AFTER THE JUMP…
Survival of the Dead R, 90m., 2010 Cast: Kathrine Munroe, Kenneth Welsh, Richard Fitzpatrick, Devon Bostwick and Alan Van Sprang Written and Directed by George A. Romero Survival of the Dead is so cartoonish, that you wouldn’t be surprised to see the cast of Looney Tunes popping out of nowhere and blasting away some Zombies. Marking his 6th official journey into the world of the undead, legendary filmmaker George A. Romero, creates a hybrid Z-picture that can be decribed as part Western, part cartoon, and part iconclastic horror movie.MORE OF THE REVIEW AFTER THE JUMP.
Anticipation is in the air as nerd boners stiffen and engorge across the country. The eagerly-awaited District 9 opens THIS THURSDAY AT MIDNIGHT and that means that YOU can be one of the first to see it. According to early buzz and our review, the movie is stellar. You should definitely stay up late to catch what looks to be one of this summer's best. I'd stay up to watch it but I've got to deliver my papers in the morning. It's my sworn duty and I intend to honor it. (District 9) Focus your eyeballs on these morning links… Some info about The Thing prequel. (/Film) Paul Giamatti replaces Sean Penn in The Three Stooges. (Empire) Sum Dood cast as Green Hornet's Kato. (Cinematical) Salma Hayek totally unshaven. (Dread Central) Doug Liman is the new Hero of the Hudson. (Cinema Blend) Awesome scenes from G.I. Joe cartoon box set. (io9) So happy that Tuco made this list. (Pajiba)
“Star Trek” has been lying on the emergency room table for a good 10 years now, finally flat-lining with the ultra-flop “Nemesis” back in 2003, and then being confirmed dead when the pitiable TV series “Enterprise” was cancelled in 2005. After having overcome cancellation, diminishing box office returns, and an increasingly maligned mythology only taken seriously by hardcore fanboys, “Star Trek” looked like it had finally breathed its last Enter JJ Abrams, who has retooled, rebooted, and re-energized this franchise into a slick, hip, action-packed and character-driven summer blockbuster that will bring in much-needed new fans and please plenty of hard-to-satisfy Trekkies. The hardcore fans won’t be happy, but then again, are they ever?
