Genre Films for the Summer 2010 Season: May

In May a couple of sequels, as well as a movie based on a video game will be released. From what the trailers show, the look like they’ll be a lot of fun to watch. And … hold onto your seats … George Romero is bringing us yet another film about the undead. Iron Man […]

Genre Films for the Summer 2010 Season: April

Yesterday, I listed the genre films that were in theaters as of March 2010. Now I’m moving into the future! Here are the genre films coming out next month. Clash of the Titans “Release the Kraken!” I just love that line … and in this remake of the 1981 film starring Harry Hamlin, Liam Neeson […]

Genre Films for the Summer 2010 Season: March

Nothing transports you to another world quite like a movie. I just saw Avatar last week and was blown away by how real Pandora felt. And, because I saw the film in a movie theater (imagine that!), I also got to see a bunch of trailers for upcoming films. I must say that this summer […]

Alice Cooper Will Sign Autographs All 3 Days at Chiller Theatre

Chiller Theatre is a toy, model and film expo with a decidedly dark bent. And it attracts a wide array of celebrity guests and interesting bands. So, if you’re going to be in the Parsippany, NJ, area April 16 – 18, 2010, you might want to check them out. They have a whole line up […]

Movie Review: The Prestige

At first blush, The Prestige looks like an interesting period movie. But you’d be wrong … I think. Starring Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale as rival magicians in 19th century England.

Am (John Wraith/Kestrel), Lynn Collins (Kayla Silverfox), Hugh Jackman (Logan/Wolverine), Ryan Reynolds (Wade Wilson/Weapon XI) and Liev Schreiber (Victor Creed/Sabertooth) at the Tempe, Ariz., premiere of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. My husband and I were watching the extras on the Blu-Ray edition of X-Men Origins: Wolverine the other night and I learned something that […]

Walking on Sunshine

Earlier this week SyFy aired Sunshine, the 2007 film, written by Alex Garland and directed by Danny Boyle (both worked on 28 Days Later), about a group of astronauts on a mission to re-ignite the dying sun. I remember when it first came out it had a bit of fan fare and then just seemed […]

Touring The Body Snatchers

I recently read Jack Finney’s novel, The Body Snatchers and was hit by the idea of a “Body Snatchers Tour of Northern California.” You see, the novel (at least the 1978 version I read — part of The Stephen King Horror Library) was set in Mill Valley, a town in Marin County just north of […]

Bruce? Is That Really You?

Last night I finished watching a movie I Tivo’d from SyFy starring Bruce Campbell … that campy, B-movie star of such hits as Evil Dead and Evil Dead II. Directed by Bruce and featuring Bruce as himself, My Name Is Bruce tells of the plight of a small Oregon town, Gold Lick, that is being […]
