Spider-Man Broadway Musical Sees More Problems

Posted: December 21, 2010 at 2:54 pm   /   Live Theater, Local

Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark has been a snowball rolling downhill for some time now.  I thought it would be nice to not just give you the latest disaster for the Broadway musical but give you a timeline of the problems that it has faced. After several readings of the script in 2007, the production […]

The Villain in the New Spider-man Film is…

Posted: December 6, 2010 at 1:08 am   /   Film, Local, Movie News

Nels Van Adder! Wait, who the hell is that? Proto-Goblin! Still not ringing any bells?  Yeah, not for me either.  Irrfan Khan, who many remember as the police officer in Slumdog Millionaire, will be playing the villain that I have named above (a villain nobody knows).  I quickly researched said name on the most trusted […]

New Images from Julie Taymor’s “The Tempest”

Posted: November 12, 2010 at 4:20 pm   /   Local, Movie News

One thing that you can almost take for granted with a Julie Taymor film is that the visuals will be stunning. Both Frida and Across the Universe had stunning visuals, with clear and bright cinematography. It looks as if her next film based upon the William Shakespeare play, The Tempest, is going to be cut […]

Sony Pictures Casts Rhys Ifans as the Villain Lizard in “Spider-Man” Reboot

Posted: October 15, 2010 at 2:26 pm   /   Local, Movie News

With each subsequent announcement by Sony, I get more and more sold on the Spider-Man reboot. At first, I understood the logic behind it (especially after the atrocity that was Spider-Man 3), but I didn’t think it was right to reboot so quickly. The studio quickly countered media people like me by hiring a quality […]

Never Let Me Go

Posted: October 8, 2010 at 1:29 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Make no mistake, Never Let Me Go is a science fiction film, but it is unlike any science fiction film you’ve ever seen before.  The film is one part coming of age drama and one part alternate universe sci-fi film. Based on the Kazuo Ishiguro novel of the same name, Never Let Me Go is […]

“Fantastic Four” Reboot in the Works by Marvel Studios

Posted: August 30, 2010 at 1:36 pm   /   Local, Movie News

I love superhero films as much as the next guy, but I have a problem with rebooting a franchise three years after the last installment.  This is now the problem with all of the Marvel properties that were sold off to other movie studios before Marvel Studios was established i.e. Spider-Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Blade.  […]

“Spider-Man” Reboot: Andrew Garfield vs. Josh Hutcherson

Posted: July 28, 2010 at 7:08 am   /   Local, Movie News

I have mixed feelings about a full on reboot of the Spider-Man franchise. I like to see a different take on the characters with new actors and everything, but I was willing to give Sam Raimi one more shot after the abysmal “Spider-Man 3.” Plus, I liked Tobey Maguire in the role. But as we […]
