I’d like you to take a look at a video: This is the first TV spot for Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie, the director’s most recent release that’s by all accounts imaginative and full of heart. It is a full-length, stop-motion remake of … Continue reading
Sometimes I’m just in the mood for a mindless popcorn heist movie. The best heist movies are stylish, like Ocean’s 11, and successfully pull one over on the audience with a last minute twist. Despite the wildly inaccurate Netflix description, … Continue reading
You guys, I just can’t anymore. I am tired of all these movies and TV series showcasing what has come to be known as the MPDG (Manic Pixie Dream Girl) aka Ol Quirky Bastard aka Ghostface Quinoa aka DJ Sheer … Continue reading
Director Mark Webb’s Amazing Spider-Man, starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, opened at theaters nationwide last night at midnight. And while reviews have been generally favorable, it seems like audiences and critics are suffering from Spider-fatigue. After all, it was … Continue reading
