M. Night hasn’t made a good movie in a long time… and yet when he was trusted to adapt the animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender into a film, he managed to make one of the most faithful adaptations we’ve seen in years! Matt loves the original series, and Nat has never seen it, but Airbender gets a unanimous cheer from the geeks, knocking out a great adaptation, a fun movie, and a Shyamalan movie that wasn’t the Crappening!
After two movies of angsty interspecies romance, Jacob and Edward are forced to join together to protect Bella from the dangers of Victoria’s vampire army and the Vulturi. Watch what Kristen, Robert, Taylor, plus new cast members Bryce and Xavier have to say about their characters in Eclipse, and what director David Slade thinks about his contribution to the Twilight Saga!
Once Wes Craven’s monster managed to get seven movies in a decade, it seemed pretty obvious that Freddy was feeling the franchise fatigue… not a even a bout with Jason Voorhees could get him back in the limelight with his own solo movie. Until the Hollywood cure-all was applied to Craven’s dream demon: reboot!
So now, Watchmen’s Jackie Earle Haley dons Englund’s signature fedora, claws and stylish Christmas sweater to terrorize the dreams of the sexy teenagers of Elm Street in a rehash of Freddy’s origin story. The only problem is that this Nightmare reboot seems more pre-occupied with being a shot-for-shot remake of Wes Craven’s original than it is at just being a good scary movie. The result is a bit bland, leaving us wondering if this movie is made for people who LOVE the original so much they’ll watch any Freddy? Or is it for people who have no idea how scary Freddy should be?
We were both BLOWN AWAY by almost every aspect of God of War 3. A fitting end to the Kratos trilogy and an amazing mythological bookend, GOW3 also delivered an even slicker gameplay and possibly the greatest graphics in any game, ever. Small hiccups to the gameplay like a DDR-style music minigame and a few too many knuckle sandwiches to the face of Zeus aside, this baby knocks it out of the park!
Director Louis Leterrier definitely brought to life an epic tale of gods and men, with huge stakes, massive monsters, and some great big actors. But if it’s faithfulness to the 1981 movie you’re looking for, or faithfulness to the legend of Perseus, or even a good 3D visual experience, Clash of the Titans is going to let you down. We enjoyed the hell out of it on some levels, and yet were left feeling completely empty on others. What did you think? Let us know!
With with Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, the Incredible Hulk’s pulse-pounder of a director, Louis Leterrier has managed to round up some of finest thespians to play the Gods of Mount Olympus and added to that the heir-apparent to the action-superstar mantle in Sam Worthington, all to be able to tell one of the oldest stories in Greek Mythology, and to remake the 1981 Clash of the Titans. This one already seems like a winner just from the names involved and from what we’ve seen in trailers, so take a look at six exclusive scenes from the movie as well as interviews with the cast and crew to judge for yourself!
Let’s preface this review with the fact that Matt is quite possibly one of the biggest werewolf aficionado’s on the planet, having watched any and every lycanthropic-film in the last hundred years. And nothing but nothing compares to The Wolf-Man. Except, of course, The Wolfman. Faithful in all the right ways, and yet unafraid to weave a more complex storyline with more extreme Werewolf rampages, an even more foreign origin story, and an ending that will knock your socks off. Yes, that’s right, there’s a new Wolfman in Blackmoor, Chaney, and he can howl with the best of them.
