Raising Hell(boy)

When I read yesterday that the kibosh had been put on Hellboy III by none other than Guillermo Del Toro himself, I have to admit that I was a bit put out. And what his account lacks in detail, it more than made up for in finality.  As I said, I was a bit bothered, […]

Underworld: Blood Wars – Trailer into Reaction

When I first heard of Underworld I imagined it would be incredible. Vampires and werewolves engaged in a conflict that’s spanned ages!  A war that raged for the most part outside of human knowledge? Yes, please! Eventually I saw the movie and realized that vampires and werewolves go great together–that is till you shoehorn in elements of The Matrix, gun […]

Tea Leaves, Entrails and Frankenstein

I find Hollywood a fascinating place, though perhaps that’s because my view is a distant one.

And while I doubt that it has […]

Wolfcop – Review

“If you can make it through the entirely of Wolfcop, you’re a much better person than I am.” I tried, I really tried but I just couldn’t do it.

I, Frankenstein – Review

“I, Frankenstein.  At Least It’s Not Van Helsing.” That’s pretty weak praise, then again I, Frankenstein isn’t the strongest of movies. No one through virtually the entire running time is at all certain if the Monster (Aaron Eckhart) has a soul–spoiler alert:  He does–though I wish the same could be said for the movie itself, because […]

‘Underworld’ Rebooted!

The Hollywood Reporter has reported that Underworld is being rebooted.  It’s been eight years since first entry in the trilogy (and two since the last film, Underworld Awakening). And while I don’t necessarily think that eight years is a long time between reboots, at least it’s more than between the transition from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 to Marc […]
