Under Review: ‘Gulliver’s Travels’

— by ADAM POYNTER — “Gulliver’s Travels” is a novel written by Jonathan Swift in 1726 and has been adapted and showcased in many different mediums over the past two decades. The latest reincarnation of the story was brought to life by 20th Century Fox and director Rob Letterman. Th[...]

Seven Clips from ‘Gulliver’s Travels’

— by ALEXA MILAN — Hollywood adapting classic stories is nothing new, and in a time when name recognition goes a long way in attracting a crowd to the theater, it’s no surprise studios are bringing more and more tales to the big screen (and in 3D, no less). The latest project to tr[...]

Five Clips from ‘Wild Target’

— by AMANDA KOEHLER — I’ve always had a penchant for British films and actors. Their humor, wit and charm are always a breath of fresh air when I tire of American comedies. And when you get a bunch of talented British actors together in a movie, it usually hits the bulls-eye[...]

Trailer Talk: ‘Gulliver’s Travels’

— by JESSIKA OWENS — “Black is the New Big” is the new tagline for the upcoming, and highly anticipated, “Gulliver’s Travels.” The film stars Jack Black as Lemuel Gulliver, who many of us remember from our childhoods either from the book by Jonathan Swift or[...]

Trailer Talk: ‘The Adjustment Bureau’

— by CAM SMITH — Hollywood’s track record for adapting the works of venerable sci-fi author Philip K. Dick has been truly spotty. While “Blade Runner” and — to a lesser degree — “Total Recall” are influential classic entries in their genre, and “Minority Report”[...]

Under Review: ‘The Wolfman’

— by JOEL CRARY — I’ll say this for Joe Johnston’s “The Wolfman”: It spares us the hyperbole and gets down to brass tacks. There are no needless scenes of exposition informing us that a lycanthrope can only be assassinated by the use of silver bullets, that the full moon brings o[...]

Seven Clips from ‘The Wolfman’

— by ROB COX — I can’t say I’ve been eagerly anticipating the upcoming “Wolfman” — I’ve always been a vampire man myself, “Twilight” not withstanding — but I admit, these seven clips do build a teensy bit of excitement. The most intriguing aspect[...]

Go Behind the Scenes with ‘The Wolfman’

— by JON MARTINCIC — Some great movies inspire sequels, few inspire whole genres. The latter was the case in the 1940s and ’50s with the wave of monster features. The introduction of Dracula, Frankenstein’s Monster, and the Wolfman to the film world led to uncountable franchises.[...]

Under Review: ‘The Young Victoria’

— by JOEL CRARY — Teenagers crave the freedom to make their own decisions and live their own lives away from their guardians, who couldn’t possibly know better. In Princess Victoria’s case, she knew better. She saw that she was in a position to be taken advantage of[...]

A Clip From ‘The Young Victoria’

— by RACHEL COYNE — Judging by Emily Blunt’s Golden Globe nomination for her role in “The Young Victoria,” I’m not the only one who enjoys poncy period pieces! In a brief clip from the drama, we get a look at Victoria’s coronation ceremony. While all the pomp and majesty is[...]

Trailer Talk: ‘The Young Victoria’

— by RACHEL COYNE — I kind of dig “boring” movies. If you ever saw a trailer for a movie that featured nothing but long conversations and tortured relationships between the characters, and wondered to yourself, “Who would watch this?,” chances are I would. Add some high-concept[...]
