The second attempt at Philip K. Dick’s adaptation of ”We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” has decidedly less Schwarzenegger and more Colin Farrell and the jury is still out on just how much to expect from the film, directed by Len Wisemen. Written by Kurt Wimmer (Ultraviolet, Equilibirum) and Mark Bomback (Live Free or Die Hard) there’s a healthy pedigree of unwatchable

For the last seven years fans have been wondering how we’d recover from the disappointment that was Star Trek: Nemesis, the film that broke the even/odd scheme we’d come to rely on. For everything that J.J. Abrams has done right in Hollywood, had he done enough to take over one of the oldest and most beloved franchises in the industry?
If Paul W.S. Anderson’s Death Race 2000 remake has anything going for it, it’s the old adage; it knows what it is and doesn’t strive for anything more or anything less. Death Race, the remakes simplified name, is a blistering film drenched in pure octane and lacking much of anything else, but this isn’t award winning cinema here and at
Completely thrust the abomination of Ang Lee’s 2003 Hulk film from your mind, and if you aren’t able to, viewing Louis Leterrier’s 2008 version of The Incredible Hulk will certainly do it for you. Whether or not you are teetering on the ragged edge if this film inherits anything from its predecessor, be rest assured that this cinematic version of

I’m a huge James Bond fan, and I only know one other person who can give me a run for my money when it comes to geeking out and turning into a total fanboy when it comes to 007. I also consider Pierce Brosnan to be perfectly suited for the role of James Bond, he embodied the role during his
King Kong is an amazing achievement in filmmaking, and even with all the buzz surrounding the three hour length of the film, or the questionable casting of some parts, the film still manages to stun the audience in amazement. Truly, after viewing the original only a week prior to seeing the remake I can say that the 2005 version of
From the moment Charlie and the Chocolate Factory begins you can see Tim Burton’s influence in both direction and visual style. The sly humor he manages to portray in the opening credits is only a prelude to what is to come as Charlie becomes his finest work since the original Batman in 1989. That’s not to say every Burton movie
Warning: The following review contains spoilers. I’ll just come right out and say it. With all the hype, hoopla, and press surrounding War of the Worlds, you would think it would be a better movie. Instead we are left with and E.T. meets Independence Day mash-up that is so poorly written even the “star power” of Tom Cruise can’t save
The Longest Yard, a remake of a 1974 film of the same name, may not have the same mainstream and broad appeal that last week’s Revenge of the Sith had, but after viewing it, I can honestly say I enjoyed it much, much more than the final chapter in the Star Wars trilogy.
