Men in Black
In the summer of 1997 Men in Black more or less blindsided us.  Not many of us knew what it was or what we should expect from it.  It was based off a comic book that (for the most part) very …

Tron Legacy
Reviewing Tron Legacy is hard.  It is not a bad movie by any means but as I watched and observed it seemed as though there was something missing.  Along those lines it's not that Tron Legacy …

Iron Man 2
Superhero movies have a strange formula to them that, for the most part, has served it well for the past decade.  The first movie spends quite a bit of time on the origin of the hero and thus it's …

Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief may be the worst movie title ever, but it is far from being the worst movie ever.  There is something quite fun about the film in and of …

X-Men Origins Wolverine
There used to be two stakes in the heart to any superhero series.  The first is making a third movie with so many villains it's just hard to focus (Spider Man 3, for example) while the other is making …

There's a Stephen King novel called "Misery" in which an author, Paul Sheldon is held hostage by his "number one fan."  In reality where life is often not so much like a …

It's been years since James Cameron released a film.  The last movie we got from James Cameron was the mega-huge blockbuster Titanic way back in 1997.  When you make the biggest grossing film …

I was never a big Star Trek fan.  I had moments where I watched the original and where I watched Next Generation but for the most part I found the series to be well... boring.  …

Day the Earth Stood Still
The original 1951 version of The Day the Earth Stood Still is without question one of the greatest science fiction films of all time.  I'm not usually opposed to a remake of a film.  I believe …

Transformers
Now, if you know me here on Lunch then there's one thing you probably learned about me early on... I love to hate Michael Bay.  Yet I couldn't stay away from Transformers the first time.  …

Hancock (Two-Disc Unrated Edition) (2008)
Hancock takes a daring approach to the Super Hero mythos.  Where as most superheroes are actually quite heroic, doing what it takes to save those in danger and be all around good role models for …

District 9
I must be honest.  When I first saw previews for District 9 my only thought was that it was remarkable how Transformers 2, GI Joe and District 9 could all look like the same preview.  Yet …

DVD front
Spider-Man... the films more or less made Comic Book movies more popular.  At least for the new era.  It sort of changed the way we look at hero films and what they can do.  Spider Man …

Star Wars - Episode III, Revenge of the Sith
Almost everyone loves Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.  I think it mostly comes from the idea that the first two movies just weren't that great and so by then audience expectations …
Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones
Despite Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menance giving George Lucas a big new bank account, the movie was panned by several critics and fans alike... mostly fans.  Were fans being a bit too …
Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace
In 1999 everyone was excited about Star Wars starting over.  It was now becoming a full circle thing.  We were going to learn about how Anakin was seduced by the dark side of the force.  …

Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back
After the unprecedented success of Star Wars, it only made sense for there to be a sequel.  George Lucas himself had stated there would be three films.  The second film in the trilogy: "The …
