Hurtin’ For Hurt Locker

by Dan

Ok, so there’s one more summer film I’m pining to see– one that’s got some exceptional buzz but seems to be arriving quietly: Hurt Locker. If Hurt Locker has been flying under your radar, hopefully the newly released “Trailer...

Blade Runner Receives a Mooning

by Dan

Right now, even as you read this, there’s a grundleload of highly anticipated movies lining up for their crack at your summer dollars. I’m all kinds of jazzed about seeing one in particular and can’t wait to toss my...

Trailer Tuesday (Dan’s Pick): The Brothers Bloom

by Dan

Way back in the high-flying days of 2005, a little indie film busted onto the scene like an object through a plate glass window. That film? Brick, naturally. A mature film noir based entirely in a High School’s underworld,...

The Weekend Wide Movie Guide: 5.10.09

by Dan

Happy weekend! Early. Three wide releases. One succinct, if not overcrowded, summary. Here we go. Observe and Report: Omnipresent Seth Rogan and cute but always subversive Anna Faris wield their hilarious ways in this not-so-feel-good comedy tribute to gratuitous...

George Lucas Gets to Chasing Some Red Tail

by Dan

11 years ago, Saving Private Ryan singlehandedly reignited interest in all things WW II and set the History Channel up with a sweet gig of nonstop WWII programming. The predictable Hollywood WW II glut ensued and things cooled off...

Snow White Punches Slow Adopters in the Face… Kind Of

by Dan

Disney may have the happiest slice of Anaheim real estate on earth (hear, hear!), a family-friendly empire always willing to shovel cash into its coffers and a surefire marketing machine that prints its own license to make money, but...

Michael Bay Takes 3D, Explodes and Perforates It

by Dan

I’ll make no apologies. I’m an ardent defender of Michael Bay’s filmography. Yes he’s known as a cocky, volatile potty mouth who subsidizes the cochlear implant industry with big, dumb action movies– and all with the prettiest feathered hair...
