Under Review: ‘Lexie Cannes’

— by ALLISON HIGGINBOTHAM — The deaf community by and large has been ignored when it comes to the film industry. Occasionally, a main character will have a relative or friend who is deaf, but you’d be hard pressed to find a deaf main character. In fact, the movie’s title[...]

Is the Man of Bronze Heading to the Silver Screen?

— by BEN FOWLER — When the phrase “pulp magazines” is mentioned, the name of Doc Savage is never far behind. You can’t get much more “pulp” than the Man of Bronze. It appears that Colombia Pictures believe there is an opening in the comic book movie market for another hero to[...]

Three Interviews from ‘Shutter Island’

— by MARIUSZ ZUBROWSKI — Is there a name more synonymous with brilliant film-making than that of Martin Scorsese? Throughout his expansive career, he’s directed several classics such as “Goodfellas” and “Raging Bull.” Most of these films contain common[...]

Kevin Smith Wants to Hit Somebody!

— by CAM SMITH — As anyone who’s been following Kevin Smith’s Twitter feed, or his insanely hilarious Smodcast well knows, the man loves hockey. I mean really loves hockey. To a nearly unhealthy degree, some might even argue. In fact, he adores my country’s favorite athletic[...]

Under Review: ‘The Yacoubian Building’ (aka ‘Omaret Yakobean’)

— by ALLISON HIGGINBOTHAM — One great thing about foreign films is you get to see different production and storytelling techniques. Watching too many Hollywood films can leave you with a jaded feeling. You know that if it’s rated PG-13 an f-bomb won’t be dropped. If there’s a hunky[...]

Drink Me: The Alice in Wonderland Kool-Aid

— by RACHEL COYNE — Did you know that a new Tim Burton-directed, Disney-produced version of “Alice in Wonderland” (in 3D!) is coming to theaters on March 5? If you answered “no,” can I come stay at the rock you live under the next time I need a mental health weekend? It sounds[...]

Poster Peek: ‘How to Train Your Dragon’

— by JOSUE SANCHEZ — This summer, we are going to find ourselves dodging a lot of 3D fire, dragons, ogres and toys. The battle is on between “Toy Story 3,” “Shrek Goes Fourth,” and “How To Train Your Dragon.” If you are a fan of 3D, this is your lucky year. I am counting [&he[...]

Review: The Ghost Writer

— by MARIUSZ ZUBROWSKI — There was a “clash of the titans” this weekend. No, Sam Worthington or Louis Leterrier are not implicated in any way. Instead cinema giants Martin Scorsese and Roman Polanski simultaneously released their latest films. Both[...]

Trailer Talk: ‘Free Willy: Escape from Pirate’s Cove’

— by BEN FOWLER — Are there no original ideas in Hollywood anymore? Without wanting to sound like an old man, it bugs me that the studios keeping churning out mindless drivel. Next to seemingly fall into this category is (brace yourself) “Free Willy: Escape from[...]

Six Clips from ‘Cop Out’

— by ALEXA MILAN — Jay and Silent Bob these two are not. In his latest movie, Kevin Smith strays from his familiar View Askewniverse and ventures into the NYPD. “Cop Out” follows New York police officers Jimmy (Bruce Willis) and Paul (Tracey Morgan) as they hunt for a stolen baseball[...]

Marlon Wayans Up for Challenge of Playing Pryor

— by CAM SMITH — Bill Condon’s Richard Pryor biopic has been a super smokin’ hot project in Hollywood the last couple years, with Eddie Murphy long rumored to bring the fiery comedian back into the land of the living. On celluloid, at least. However, the project — currently[...]
