Ben Affleck Chooses “American Bullshit” As His Next Film

Posted: January 19, 2011 at 11:17 am   /   Film, Local, Movie News

I am sure that Ben Affleck is flying on cloud nine right now.  While The Town isn’t quite raking in the awards, I am sure that he is more than happy that the film gets the recognition of being nominated.  The man, in my opinion, has hit two home runs with Gone Baby Gone and […]

Jodie Foster, Matt Damon, Sharlto Copley to Star in Neill Blomkamp’s Next Film “Elysium”

Posted: January 3, 2011 at 10:55 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie News

Would a studio pick up the follow up film from the director who made District 9?  A film from the director who took a mere $30 million and made a film that took in over $115 world wide.  A film that would be a follow up to District 9 which was loved by critics and audiences […]

True Grit

Posted: December 22, 2010 at 8:36 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

“True Grit” is the stuff that remakes are made of. Based on the beloved 1969 western starring John Wayne, Joel and Ethan Coen have taken a great story and made a film that surpasses even the original. 14-year-old Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld) is on a mission to track down the man who killed her father […]

Another Take By Zac: Film Review: True Grit

Posted: December 22, 2010 at 12:01 am   /   Another Take From Zac, Local

The latest from the Coen Bros., True Grit, is their least odd and most straightforward film to date but there is still plenty of weirdness, laughs, and amazing performances that we expect from these guys in this great film. The film is not a remake of the 1969 John Wayne film of the same name […]

Matt Damon to Star in Neill Blomkamp’s Next Film?

Posted: December 21, 2010 at 10:55 am   /   Film, Local, Movie News

Matt Damon is one of my favorite working actors today.  This is mostly due to the Bourne trilogy, partly due to The Departed.  The man has picked some great projects in his career.  Not all of them have been great, but he has been pretty smart lately.  So what film is he looking to work […]

Hereafter

Posted: October 22, 2010 at 3:27 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Clint Eastwood has proven himself as an excellent director over the years, with several of his films being nominated for and winning Academy Awards. Unfortunately, “Hereafter” does not fall into the same category as Eastwood’s triumphs, and falls short on so many levels. “Hereafter” tells the story of 3 different sets of people, all of […]

Another Take By Zac: Film Review: Hereafter

Posted: October 22, 2010 at 12:01 am   /   Another Take From Zac, Local

Clint Eastwood’s latest bests his last couple efforts but for every thing I like about Hereafter there is almost always something that really grates me the wrong way. The film follows three thread lines of different people that have had a recent connection with death and/or the “hereafter.”  One is a French reporter who has […]

Universal Hires Tony Gilroy to Direct “Bourne 4”

Posted: October 5, 2010 at 1:13 pm   /   Local, Movie News

It was assumed by many that the Bourne series would not see a sequel after Paul Greengrass dropped out, and subsequently its star, Matt Damon, did as well. Universal apparently still sees cash in the franchise and has hired Duplicity director, Tony Gilroy, to direct the fourth installment of the film series. Now here is […]
