Star Trek: Enterprise – To Boldly Go Nowhere
Star Trek: Enterprise was pretty bad, but had a few bright spots. Here’s my take after re-watching the entire series in about a week: bad plots, bad acting, bad character development, a few notable performances, and some neat historical background. For a little more flavor, read on…“The Grey” – A Review
There’s a new movie coming out this Friday for all of you survivalists out there entitled, “The Grey”. This movie has Liam Neeson cursing god and fist fighting wolves at the same time.Movie Review – Kill List (2012) (Not Rated)
A monkey wrench is thrown into the plot of Kill List very early on. It’s a scene in which a woman, who up until now we believed was merely a regular person, carves a satanic symbol into the backside of a mirror hanging in her friends’ bathroom. For the next hour, we follow a plot that shows little if any connection to this scene. When you spend all your mental energy trying to formulate some kind of explanation, you’re liable to have a hard time concentrating on what else is happening.Movie Review – The Innkeepers (2012) (R)
I’ve noticed that when a filmmaker has the temerity to develop horror movie characters beyond what would be required of them in slashers, which is usually nothing, the films are deemed slow, uneventful, and completely lacking in thrills and chills. Have we lost our ability to care about what happens to these people, to appreciate the anticipation of a scary moment, to savor suspense as it builds to a screaming climax?Movie Review – Chronicle (2012) (PG-13)
Chronicle makes a compelling case for what would happen if a group of teenage boys were to suddenly attain superhuman powers. They would not stare at each other in awe, as if they had just been touched by the hand of God. They would have fun with it, not just at their expense, but also at the expense of others. Initially, the boys in this film behave like the cast of Jackass, using their powers to pull dangerous stunts strictly for cheap thrills and a few laughs. They even pull pranks on unsuspecting people.Movie Review – The Woman in Black (2012) (PG-13)
An early twentieth century setting. English marshland shrouded in fog. Rain, thunder, and lightning. A graveyard shrouded in ivy and dead twigs. A decaying mansion high atop a hill. Rooms blanketed in dust and cobwebs. Dark hallways faintly lit by candlelight. The sounds of whispers and crying bouncing off the walls. A shadowy figure stalking the premises. From the first frame to the last, The Woman in Black looks and feels exactly the way a horror movie should look and feel.Movie Review – The Devil Inside
The horror genre has its fair share of influences, taken from now relatively dated 80’s horror effects, and the slightly more effective 90’s slasher horror arena. Those films were influenced by such horror gems as the originals Halloween and The Exorcist. The Exorcist in particular remains at the pinnacle of the “devil” genre, films that revolve around the concept of demon possession.Movie Review of Man on a Ledge
Exactly how far would YOU go to prove you are innocent of a crime? Assault a police officer? Arrange a heist?The Three Khans Of Hindi Cinema!
They are huge stars of Hindi cinema. Each one of them is fully capable of carrying a movie on their own shoulders. The Indian crowds just love them. Aamir Khan, Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan. They can be called the last of the classic heroes of Hindi cinema.The Three Khans and Amitabh Bachchan!
When Amitabh Bachchan (AB or Big B) stormed Indian cinema in the early seventies by doing roles of ‘angry young men’ the three Khans were little children. By the time the three Khans became megastars Big B was a legend.Best Movies About College
