Awesome review Remo! I had planned on seeing SHERLOCK HOLMES this weekend but decided to get AVATAR out of the way first and didn't have time to make it out to this one. Reading your review definitely makes me want to see it now. The good news is that I have the last two days of the year off, so hop...

AVATAR in 3-D

Went to see a matinee showing of this the other day in Real 3-D and really enjoyed it. I was really excited when I heard that James Cameron was making another movie, but I also feared that all of the hype would ruin it for me. Much to my surprise, AVATAR turned out to be pretty decent. It certainly ...

R.I.P Dan O'Bannon

Just a few weeks after the death of Paul Naschy, it looks like genre fans are being dealt another blow. Amidst the media hype surrounding Brittany Murphy's death, I just found out today that director/screenwriter Dan O'Bannon passed away last Thursday at the age of 63. Most of us will likely remembe...

Good old Remo....taking one for the team so we don't have to;) I have no interest in NEW MOON or any of the other movies. I finally saw TWILIGHT when I was on vacation this summer and the only good thing I can say is that I didn't pay to see it. That had to be one of the most overhyped movies ever a...

Despite my lack of satisfaction with Dark Castle's latest offerings, this is one movie I was looking forward to and I have to say that I really enjoyed this movie a lot. One of my favorite childhood memories was watching NINJA III: THE DOMINATION on HBO in the mid-80's. Seeing that movie got me inte...

I got burned out after SAW III and still haven't seen the last two entries. But after reading Remo's review I'm really wanting to see this one. I just need to catch up to parts IV and V first. But I do agree that the series needs to end now, but something tells me that might not happen right away.

I was pretty disappointed with this one and was wondering afterward if I would have had a better time with WHITEOUT. I never saw the original HOUSE ON SORORITY ROW, so I had no reference point going to this aside from the ads that seemed to mirror IKWYDLS. After seeing SORORITY ROW, I'm still decidi...

I walked into this one already knowing what to expect....a big-budget live-action cartoon courtesy of Stephen Sommers.

I actually didn't mind this one that much. Then again, I was one of the few people that didn't hate Zombie's HALLOWEEN remake. I pretty much agree with what Remo said above for the most part. While I didn't hate this a whole lot, I just thought it paled in comparison to FINAL DESTINATION 3-D. But I ...

As much as I like Kate Beckinsale and Tom Skeritt, I was real iffy about this one just by seeing the previews. After reading Remo's ever-reliable review, I've decided to sit this one out until it comes out on video. I'll probably put my movie dollar toward SORORITY ROW instead. But I have to ask Rem...

I can't believe nobody has posted about this one yet. Certainly somebody has seen it besides me. Is it really that dead in here? :p I loved the first two X-MEN movies and thought they were among the best superhero flicks ever made.

I'm in total agreement with everyone here. I was never a big fan of "Star Trek" on TV. I've only seen select episodes of the original series and "Next Generation" but never bothered with any of the other spinoffs. My biggest exposure to TREK was the movies that I grew up on. I enjoyed the ones with ...
