‘The Thin Man’ Remake Has a Director, Still Needs a Nora

— by SEAN GERSKI — At this point, it’s completely to superfluous to complain about Hollywood rebooting and remaking movies. It’s going to happen and there’s not much we can do about it (even avoiding most of them doesn’t seem to do the trick). But with movies like[...]

Poster Peek: ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’

— by ADAM POYNTER — No films in the Disney catalog have garnered more revenue than the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise. Originally set to end as a trilogy, Disney couldn’t let go of this cash cow and shortly after the third film was released, it was announced that there would [...]

Under Review: ‘Rango’

— by SHERICE ANTOINETTE — When I watched the “Rango” trailer, I wasn’t impressed. The character design left me cold and I didn’t find anything cute or cuddly about the lead lizard, Rango. But as a Johnny Depp fan, his name sold me, and so I went in with low expectations, assuming[...]

Four Clips from ‘Rango’

— by JOSUE SANCHEZ — It is no secret that I am a fan of the recent slew of computer-animated movies that have been pixelated our way since the success of the first “Toy Story.” Some have been better than others, but most have simply been great to watch. The writing, the art, [...]

The Top 5 Most Dateable Male Movie Characters

— by ALLISON HIGGINBOTHAM — It’s not hard to be perfect in a movie. Characters don’t have to snore, chew to loudly, be a neat freak, be so unorganized it’s dysfunctional, etc. If a movie calls for a romantic male lead then gosh darnit there had better be nothing unattractive about [...]

— by SHERICE ANTOINETTE — Gore Verbinski, director of the first three “Pirates of the Caribbean” films, teams up with Johnny Depp once again, this time for the 3-D animated feature “Rango.” The teaser, which was released months ago, was more of a tribute to “Fear and Loathing I[...]

Trailer Talk: ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’

— by AMANDA KOEHLER — I have a confession to make … one I hope you movie fans won’t hold too much against me. I slept through the majority of “Pirates of the Caribbean 2” and “3.” I saw “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl̶[...]

Under Review: ‘The Tourist’

— by JESSIKA OWENS — If “Salt” had a baby — a very predictable baby — with “The Italian Job,” that underachiever of a child would be “The Tourist.” And I would quickly like to apologize in advance to anyone and everyone involved with the fi[...]

Five Clips from ‘The Tourist’

— by AMANDA KOEHLER — My roommate and I were discussing Angelina Jolie this week — mostly how she seems to play some sort of bad ass in many of her roles. She’s a spy, or an assassin. She kicks butt and looks hot doing it. In “The Tourist,” Jolie plays a mystery w[...]

Disney Wants To Make ‘Pirates’ 5 & 6 Back to Back

— by SHERICE ANTOINETTE — Disney is very optimist about the latest “Pirates of the Caribbean” installment, “On Stranger Tides.” Disney is so confident the sequel will be a sure summer hit, in fact, that apparently the cast and crew have been informed to keep their calenda[...]
