Astonishing X-Men - Gifted (Marvel Knights) (2009)
It was only a matter of time before I’d succumb to the charms of the motion comic genre and now that I’ …

Firefly - The Complete Series (2002)
First off, let me assure you this: I’m no fanboy who slobbers over all things Joss Whedon.  I don’t dislike the man, nor do I dislike his work.  I have a healthy respect for anyone …

In the event that you wonder how in the world the Pixar Cars franchise morphed into the Disney Planes universe (of which this film is the first of a proposed trilogy), let’s take a look at the interesting …

The Bling Ring
"The Bling Ring" is an odd, funny, somewhat artsy film from Sofia Coppolla based on a fascinating Vanity Fair article by Nancy Jo Sales titled "The Suspects Wore Louboutins."  …

Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy
I’m ashamed to admit this – mostly because I’m such a huge fan of horror films in general – but I don’t recall seeing the first NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET in theatres.  …

Take note, gentle warriors: highbrow critics have always been quick (and first) to dismiss the validity of the fantasy film.  Why?  Well, there are possibly scores of reasons that range from …

You really have to hand it to DreamWorks; often considered second fiddle to the mastery of the CG craft that is Pixar, these guys just continue to release solid family flick after solid family flick.  …

To animated film students and CG geeks in general, the geniuses responsible for the Pixar classics we know and love have become something of celebrities themselves.  John Lasseter, Brad Bird, Pete …

The Star Wars Holiday Special (1978)

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa
I've never been a fan of the Jackass series.  An obnoxious MTV comedy about guys who hurt themselves on camera falling off stairs, getting hit with feces and other nonsense.  It had a couple …

The Seasoning House
I never like to mince words on what I think of any particular film or DVD, and, under most circumstances, THE SEASONING HOUSE is one of those flicks I can take or leave.  At its core, it’s …

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa
MTV's improv hidden comedy show turned movie focuses on a horny old coot who has to take his grandson across the country to stay with his deadbeat dad and along the way wackiness ensues. Stupid as it …

The Croods
Often has Dreamworks animation been called the ‘poor man’s Pixar’ and yet, these days, even Pixar has their misses. Well, agree with me or not, Dreamworks has given Pixar its much needed …

Sophia Coppola's film is based on the true story of some jaded, amoral LA teens who stole millions of dollars worth of designer goods from celebrities they admired.  They get high, take a lot …

Robocop 3 (1993)
Except when it doesn't.      The original Robocop movie was a brilliant satire of big business corruption, marketing and sci fi action blended together with impressive special …

Universal Soldier (1992)
Universal Soldier isn't a great movie by any stretch, but to me, it's a guilty pleasure.  It's a decent slab of late 80's/early 90's action cheese that despite some weak moments …

Kick-Ass 2
The comic book mini-series “Kick Ass” became a phenomena because of the way it managed to create a tale of anti-heroes, as to how fantasy and reality often do not coincide, and how loneliness …

Kick-Ass 2
Kick Ass 2 will probably disappoint a lot of people who, like me, loved the original to one degree or another. There are just too many flaws in this film to not, at some point, feel a little jilted. There …

   OK, let's get this out of the way right up front. Superman is 80 years old. (Not the character, the franchise.) That means there are 80 years of history and tradition surrounding the …

Let me first say that I've always believed that Superman as a whole is somewhat dull. Supes is bogged down by the fact that he ignited the Golden Age of Comics. He's an almighty being with few, …
