Movie Review: The Avengers

Even though life has been a tad bit chaotic lately, I still like to take the time to go watch a movie and relax. I watch previews and read up on certain movies during their production and judge whether or not that movie is perfect for turning off my brain and having a good time while watching. One such movie out right now is The Avengers. It’s already been out for a full week in the United States and it has been dominating any and all competition with good reason!

Movie Review: Dark Shadows

In 1966 a new kind of soap opera hit the TV, one about vampires, witches, ghost, and mystery.  This series followed a young lady named Victoria Winters, who moved to a house which was known throughout the town as being haunted.  The show was finding its footing for the first 200 episodes, as they gave us a few mystery storylines along with the normal soap drama.

Review: "The Raven"

Edgar Allan Poe was a great writer who lived a hard life.  In his final days, he was found out of it and taken to a hospital, where he died.  The facts of his death remain a mystery to this day.  A new movie is coming out this weekend called “The Raven”, which centers on a time where no one really knows what happened.  The movie comes up with it’s own myth for the death of Edgar Allan Poe, showing us the last few days of what could've been his life, an adventure story of mystery, death and romance.

Review: The Five-Year Engagement

Some movies have interesting concepts but just are not well executed  This type of problem lands in all genres, be it comedy, action, romance, or adventure.  They have a great idea, though the problem is making it a full length movie for people to enjoy.  Some movie will start off well, as their idea is seen for those few glimpses in the beginning, but then it drags and drags.  This was the feeling of the movie “The Five-Year Engagement”.

Review: Pirates Band of Misfits

With all sorts of CGI movies coming out these days, it’s a breath of fresh air to see an animated movie that is not CGI.  “The Pirates! Band of Misfits” is a great movie coming to theaters this Friday, full of laughs, adventure, and fun characters.  Originally this movie was titled “The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists”, which made a lot more sense as these Pirates find themselves entering a Scientist of the Year contest.

Review: Comic-Con: Episode IV – A Fan’s Hope

Comic-Con: Episode IV – A Fan’s Hope Movie PosterFor the last couple of years, one of the things I have wanted to do is attend Comic-Con (San Diego Comic-Con International) and I thought this year would be the year that I would make this goal a reality. However, a couple of months ago I was invited to an important event happening during the same weekend, so once again this year no Comic-Con for me. But then I learned of a new Morgan Spurlock documentary coming out called "Comic-Con: Episode IV – A Fan’s Hope" that would be about Comic-Con.

Review: The Three Stooges 2012

 The Three Stooges is a comedy group that I have known of since I was a little kid.  Growing up with their films in my house, it’s a group that my family has always respected and enjoyed.  Moe, Larry and Curly were names that we knew well. The Three Stooges have touched millions as their comedy lives on through many people who remember them and do jokes all the time that reflect back to their films.  So when a new movie popped up many Three Stooges fans were on the edge.

Review: Wrath of the Titans

Most Ninja Turtle fans right now eyes are all on the news about the new “Ninja Turtles” movie for 2013, which has us watching those who are named for the film, one of which is director Jonathan Liebesman.  As I mentioned in a post back when we first heard that Liebesman was looking to be the new director for the “Ninja Turtles” movie, I have not really known who he was.  Never seeing any movies directed by him before.

Title: Ninja Turtles

More news on the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film has been confirmed.  The studios is looking to title the movie “Ninja Turtles”, instead of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”.
