The accordion legs of Mirror, Mirror

Mirror, Mirror is the first of two Snow White adaptations which will grace our silver screens this year. This is the lighter of the two, and from the trailers, it looked far too light, on the point of absurd.

The shankings of Alcatraz

The first, rather short, season of Alcatraz has come to a cliff-hanging close. Has the big-mystery series shanked itself with the season finale?

The familiar faces of The Infinite

The Infinite was recently canceled after only four issues, and didn't even make a full story arc. Sales were poor and the line went almost unnoticed critically. It now wallows in uncertainty, perhaps never to be picked back-up.

The missions of The Lorax

The Lorax film is based on the Doctor Seuss fantasy poem book by the same name.

John Carter reviews are finally here


John Carter has been one of the biggest gambles in recent Hollywood memory, with a huge budget, and much speculation whether it can find an audience or not. 



The big bugs and busts of Journey 2: The Mysterious Island

Journey 2 is the sequel to the Brendan Fraser film Journey to the Center of the Earth, and it’s actually pretty terrible.

This Archetype is dystopian sci-fi

The fact that effects and talent at this skill level can be found for the tiny budget of an independent studio is outstanding, and makes one wonder why Hollywood is still spending hundreds of millions of dollars per film.

The monsters and dolls of The River

The River premiered this past Tuesday on ABC with a two-part opening episode.

The flight and current of Chronicle

Chronicle is the first film this year I was genuinely looking forward to seeing in the theater.

The silence and power of Touch

Last week saw the first episode of Touch aired in a special event on Fox. The remainder of the show will begin in a couple of months, but we’ve already gotten a taste of the story with this first episode, and it’s impressive.
