Review: 21 Jump Street

— by ADAM DALE — When it comes to buddy police comedies, we have seen our fill of action versus comedy. The chemistry between the leads can be just as vitally important to the movie as the story or the jokes themselves. Without the right mixture, the film can be perceived as a parody or [...]

— by MARIUSZ ZUBROWSKI — Being a musician is no doubt an appealing profession, however, it takes a certain amount of luck and skill (or in this generation’s case — a nice music video or idiotic yet somewhat captivating dance) to make it in the business. This explains why the majo[...]

Eight Clips from ‘Get Him to the Greek’

— by JESSIKA OWENS — Russell Brand and Jonah Hill seem like an odd duo to hit the big screen, but that’s part of the fun. After watching some clips for “Get Him to the Greek,” I must say it seems down right hysterical. Hill, who plays Aaron Green, has a brilliant way of[...]

Trailer Talk: ‘Megamind’ (Teaser Version)

— by ALLISON HIGGINBOTHAM — It’s pretty easy to be a superhero. You’ve got some supernatural power (for the most part), people are cheering you on (for the most part), and there is always a girl worth fighting for. What we don’t think about, though, is what it’s like to be the[...]
