“Footloose” Remake Review Starring Kenny Wormald, Julianne Hough and Dennis Quaid

Posted: October 14, 2011 at 11:54 am   /   Tom O'Keefe Movie Reviews

Footloose, opens much like the original – with kids in a small town dancing to the musical strains of Kenny Loggins. How small is this town, you ask? It’s so small that the kids who live there still dance to Kenny Loggins. Honest to God…Kenny Loggins. When tragedy strikes after one of their adult-contemporary inspired […]

Movie Review: ‘Footloose’ Dances to Same Beats from 1984

Posted: October 14, 2011 at 10:53 am   /   Featured, Film, Movie Reviews

As a woman, I’m inclined to bestow immediate praise on the new version of Footloose. I mean, the only way this movie could appeal to my nostalgic ladyparts even more would be to randomly include neon Lisa Frank art and unicorns. And then that realization kind of scared me, so I had a frank talk […]

Crazy, Stupid, Love

Posted: July 29, 2011 at 12:00 am   /   Movie Reviews, Reviews

“I have loved her, even when I hated her.” Hollywood movies nowadays rarely surprise me. They might shock me in regards to how appallingly bad they are (I’m looking at you, Splice), but generally they don’t really have the wherewithal to leave me speechless. I’ve always been a Steve Carell fan. The Office remains one of my […]

Another Take By Zac: Film Review: X-Men: First Class

Posted: June 3, 2011 at 3:50 am   /   Another Take From Zac, Film

X-Men: First Class is a great comic book film that is anchored by a fantastic cast and resets the X-Men universe in an era ripe for potential future films. The film opens up right where the franchise did, with Erik Lehnsherr being separated from his family at a Nazi concentration camp and ripping a fence […]

‘X-Men: First Class’ opens June 3rd, 2011 (wide)

Posted: May 29, 2011 at 3:37 am   /   Coming Soon

Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to […]

Another Take By Zac: Film Review: Super

Posted: April 4, 2011 at 12:28 am   /   Another Take From Zac, Movie Reviews

Super is the latest from James Gunn and the result is a bizarre, violent, and funny take on the super hero genre that falls in line with Kick-Ass and Watchmen of recent years. A subversion of the comic book film, this is probably the most realistic take on what having a masked avenger running around […]

“X-Men: First Class” HD Trailer Starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence

Posted: February 14, 2011 at 11:16 am   /   HD Movie Trailers

I have been anticipating this film since I heard that Matthew Vaughn was directing, and it is nice to finally see some footage to back up the anticipation.  I think overall it is a pretty good trailer.  The music and tone are fantastic.  I am not a fan of the twenty second clip show of […]

Posted: January 19, 2011 at 11:48 am   /   Film, Movie News

I feel that X-Men: First Class stuff is gonna start pouring in.  The response to the cast photo that was released yesterday was not great.  Fox has said that a finished version will appear online sometime today, and I would imagine more photos to calm fans down.  Until then, here is an interview Kevin Bacon […]
