Posted: June 10, 2011 at 8:39 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

In “Super 8,” writer / director J.J. Abrams shows us what it would be like if “Stand By Me,” “LOST” and “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial” were all combined into one epic film. Many elements are reminiscent of the aforementioned material, and the result is an amalgamation that puts it right up there amongst the classics that […]

Another Take By Zac: Film Review: Super 8

Posted: June 10, 2011 at 12:05 am   /   Another Take From Zac, Film, Local

Super 8 is a fun and fine looking homage to Spielberg, as is intended.  However, I can’t help but feel it could have been more, given a bit better characterization and fully engaging some of its really interesting ideas surrounding the secret of the film. There is no need to get into plot here because […]

Spielberg no longer directing ‘Harvey’

Posted: December 4, 2009 at 11:49 am   /   Local, Movie News

A little disappointing. I was looking forward to Spielberg’s take on the remake of the 1950 Jimmy Stewart film. Although you can’t blame any high profile actor for not wanting to take the part. I don’t think it ever pays off to take a role what was done perfectly by an actor before, especially one […]

Hugh Jackman heads up ‘Real Steel’

Posted: November 24, 2009 at 1:14 pm   /   Local, Movie News

Sure, I wasn’t a fan of his semi-blockbuster over the summer, X-Men Origins: Wolverine. I do like Hugh Jackman though. He’s a very charismatic actor, and I feel he is good at what he does. The story about him buying breakfast for X-Men fans waiting in line for his new film endeared him to me […]
