Recently I viewed the newly released on DVD sci-fi action thriller Sunshine starring Cillian Murphy and Chris Evans. With the star power of these two actors alone, one would think that this movie should have some push behind it in the marketing department. Instead, this film seems to remain unfairly anonymous to casual movie goers.
There are two words/phrases that will help you understand the essence of this film: action-packed and hilarious. What do you get when dozens of people (including infants) are murderously killed by drooling aliens with an undeterminable number of tentacles? AVP2 baby!
One might not realize it until the bitter end, but Cloverfield is a love story. The film contains irrationality, irregularity, and tastelessness of the highest order. Rather than demonstrate how intellectual New Yorkers are (I am from New York), it might have been in better taste if the directors had chosen a different city to showcase murder, mayhem, and building collapses in a post 9-11 world.
The legend of loch ness monster has long been a matter of great debate and much speculation. Based on the book by Dick King-Smith, Water Horse: Legend of the Deep gives an interesting twist on all the old tales of Nessie and adds a very heartwarming family friendly twist that makes the whole thing very watchable.
This film was billed by many as M. Night Shyamalan’s triumphant return to the big screen as writer, director, and actor in one of his all too well-known films. We were delighted with Signs and shocked by The Village, and some of us were awe struck at Paul Giamatti and company in Lady In The Water; but anyone hoping for a positive connotation to describe The Happening may be sorely disappointed.
Guillermo Del Toro deserves an award for manufacturing the lamest, most low-level, non-impactful mockery of a super hero film in decades. This is quite an achievement considering this is superhero season and every comic book superhero has received their moment in the cinematic spotlight.
Knowing the future has been a subject of inquiry for Nicolas Cage in several of his films. Whether he is personally fascinated by clairvoyance and doomsday scenarios, or is merely a science fiction madman is anyone’s conjecture. The older I become the more I learn, albeit begrudgingly, to stop expecting the worst of new movies. Knowing is the surprise film of 2009 to date; mixing equal parts excellence, action, excitement, and thrilling suspense.
Exosquad Seasons 1, 2. Have any of my readers fallen in love with a cartoon or any show at all as a youth or shortly after it has gone off the air? I remember watching Three’s Company, MacGyver, Star Trek, Deep Space Nine, Dawson’s Creek, Scrubs (yet it is still in progress) and now House. The best way to watch a program is to wait for it to go off the air and have access to a rerun every day or to the collection of DVDs in order to view the show on a daily basis. This removes the week-long wait, or the wait for the new season, the god-awful commercials, and allows viewing at one’s leisure in the absence of the frustration that accompanies the production of shows. I would rather watch Dawson’s Creek, ALL of Dawson’s Creek in three months than have to wait 6 years for the show to end. Watching a show is like having a companion through rough times. Having a familiar and lovable show to watch after work, dinner, time with friends, exercising, cleaning, and life’s responsibilities, is a brilliant reward…
