“Gravity” Finds a Co-Star for Sandra Bullock in George Clooney

Posted: December 16, 2010 at 11:00 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie News

Alfonso Cuarón is a very talented director to say the least.  He directed Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban which some consider as the best film in the franchise.  He also directed Children of Men which is a personal favorite of mine.  So it’s hard for me to believe that he has had a […]

“District 9” Director and Star, Neill Blomkamp and Shartlo Copely Reunite for “Elysium”

Posted: December 7, 2010 at 1:52 am   /   Local, Movie News

Three years ago if you had asked someone who Neill Blomkamp and Shartlo Copely, it would have been quickly greeted with, “Who?” Although, many people on the street might still utter the same response, I wouldn’t expect it to stay that way. The two have now become a hot Hollywood commodity with the surprising critical […]

The Hidden Gem – “Equilibrium”

Posted: November 29, 2010 at 1:54 pm   /   Film, Local

“The Hidden Gem” is all about my personal favorite films.  And while some of the films I discuss may not be hidden to most movie fans, they are hidden to a majority of my friends and people that I have talked to.  So I want to discuss them for three reasons: 1. Tell you why […]

Duncan Jones made one of my favorite films of last year.  Moon is a film that not nearly enough people have seen, and it boasts one of the greatest performances of 2009 in Sam Rockwell.  Now Jones gives us our first look at his next film, Source Code.  I think the trailer looks great.  While it […]

“I Am Number Four” HD Trailer Starring Dianna Agron and Alex Pettyfer

Posted: September 30, 2010 at 1:30 pm   /   Local, Movie Trailers

God knows I love me some sci-fi, but I can’t really tell what is going on in this trailer. Although, part of me is insanely happy about this. Most trailers of the past few years have spoiled just about everything. (With the occasional exceptions.) It is nice to have kind of a vague sense of […]

Roger Qbert Reviews Christopher Nolan’s “Inception” starring Leonardo DiCaprio

Posted: July 16, 2010 at 9:42 am   /   Local, Tom O'Keefe Movie Reviews

Don’t read this review. Seriously. Don’t. Christopher Nolan’s latest film is such a twisty-turny fantastical film that, if you have any desire to see the film, you’d probably be best served walking in cold. And honestly, it’s good enough to warrant that you stop reading right now in order to keep your slate clean. However, […]

Posted: March 6, 2010 at 4:22 pm   /   Local, Television News

Sci-fi series have never really enjoyed blockbuster ratings on TV, even the original Star Trek series didn’t last because of low ratings. Although, they do manage to keep a tight cult following. It seems there is a sci-fi show that has a petition to keep it from being canceled every year. This year there is […]

Book Of Eli

Posted: January 15, 2010 at 11:45 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

The Hughes Brothers have not made a film since 2001’s From Hell starring Johnny Depp, and sometimes their lack of practice shines through in their new film Book of Eli. Their flair and overall filmmaking sense seems to be well enough intact to bring us a pretty strong January release. Post apocalyptic worlds are all […]

Review: Avatar

Posted: December 18, 2009 at 9:57 am   /   Local, Off the Wall

Avatar is director James Cameron’s technical masterpiece, that he has been working on developing since 2006. The final product is a completely immersive, breathtaking cinematic achievement that will make you feel like you are experiencing the film from the other side of the screen. Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) is an ex-marine who lost the use […]
