Suicide Squad is a weird movie, and not just because it’s about a motley crew of supervillains set in the DC universe. The movie itself is also a motley amalgamation—a strange blend of different tones, stories, and pacing all mashed into something that has cool individual elements, but never really comes together.
Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters is a film for anyone who ever watched the first Ghostbusters and thought, “I wish they got to use their guns more.” It’s bigger, brighter, and louder—the sort of movie that features the Ghostbusters shooting ghosts in slow motion set to the iconic theme song. It’s also incredibly funny. The…
Years of hollow hype and months of flashy trailers aimed at getting non-World of Warcraft players into theater seats left me with little hope that I would enjoy Duncan Jones’ Warcraft movie. Well, surprise.
Some people had hoped, after months of hype and the pedigree of director Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code), that Warcraft might break the long and storied Curse Of Bad Video Game Movies. I have some sad news for those people. Maybe video game adaptations were just never meant to be.
In an age saturated with zombie movies and TV shows, I Am a Hero does something I thought impossible: It makes zombies terrifying again.
Yugi and his friends’ story may have ended a decade ago, but there is still one last chapter to be told in the new animated film Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions.
Bakuman the movie is based on the manga of the same name by the creators of the popular Death Note manga series. The story is about two high school classmates who set off to become manga creators for Weekly Shonen Jump, the biggest name in the manga world. The movie is fantastic.
Of course, that’s easier said than done when he has superpowers and can move at mach 20.
The first Parasyte movie (first of 2) premiered last week and I went in hoping that I would be wrong. Long story short: I wasn't.
Two years ago, classic 90s anime/manga Rurouni Kenshin made its way to the big screen. It was an excellent live-action adaptation—easily one of the best I have ever seen. The second film, Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno, is equally as well done—something even more impressive given the amount of story it has to cover.
The great thing about this Peter Parker is that you believe it when he cries.
I was not prepared for The LEGO Movie.
One of the true joys of the movie watching experience is having your expectations blown away. This applies to all forms of entertainment, but films are perhaps the best possible example. Because how many times have you seen a trailer and expected something to be God awful, only to be pleasantly surprised by the actual…
You've heard it a million times already. How Minecraft is not just some little game about surviving the night and making stuff, but a major milestone for the entire medium. Along with how it has forever transformed the way that games are made, played, even perceived. So on and so forth.
Silent Hill: Revelation 3D opens nationwide tomorrow (or tonight at midnight in some areas). It's the second stab at adapting Konami's landmark survival horror franchise for the big screen.
Are superpowers a blessing or a curse? Are mutants more like ethnic minorities, or queer people? For too long, TV shows and movies have been asking these same old questions, without really finding any interesting answers.
Sucker Punch is such a bad movie that it raises the bar for what counts as terrible. That's because there's a horrific genius in it. This film will crystallize for you all those half-formed thoughts about what's wrong with Hollywood.
Scott Pilgrim, a rock and roll hero in his own mind, meets the girl of his dreams, Ramona Flowers. To win her, Scott must use a skill set one can only learn from video games and comic books to succeed.
Inception is a big movie about flexible dreams and stubborn minds, but it is also a sorting hat. Try it on and you will know if you're a gamer, or if you're not.
