Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
The summer movie season can be home to plenty of whimsical, often ridiculous premises for movies. We’ve seen movies based on comic books, toy lines, and most recently, board games. “Abraham …

'The Avengers' Directed By Joss Whedon
Well, they did it. They managed to pull it off. The cinematic gods have shined upon us, and after five films and billions of dollars building it up, The Avengers absolutely delivers. Joss Whedon, his …

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
If there were an award for most unsettling film of 2011 or best use of black eye-liner, David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo would be a shoe-in. That’s not to say it isn’t …

Drive (2011 film)
  Drive is a “love-it-or-hate-it” kind of movie, fortunately though I love it enough for several theaters full of those that full into the latter category. It’s admittedly mismarketed, …

50/50
“50/50” isn’t a movie about cancer. “50/50” isn’t a film about a bromance or how a family rallies together in the end despite their differences. Instead, “50/50” …

Cowboys & Aliens (2011 film)

Green Lantern (2011)
Green Lantern is a very flawed movie-going experience. It’s by no means a “good” movie, but it doesn’t fall into the ranks of the “superhero movie gone wrong” league …

On paper RED seems too good to be true. The idea of classic actors of comedy, drama, and action like Bruce Willis and Morgan Freeman teaming up for a film is like a movie version of an eclipse. The film …
