Journey To The Center Of The Earth

By DLFerguson, published on Jul 13, 2008

...plants and flying piranha fish to deal with. But there are also marvels such as luminescent hummingbirds, magnetic rocks that float in mid-air and an entire ocean.

If you’ve seen the ads and trailers then you’ve probably guessed that this isn’t a movie you’re going to expecting the acting to blow you out of your seat. And it doesn’t. The main selling point of this movie and the main reason to go see it is because of the digital 3-D effects which are amazingly good. There are a lot of theaters that are showing this in the... (more)

Will This Joker Have The Last Laugh?

By Ed Attanasio, published on Jul 10, 2008

I don’t know about you, but I am very excited about seeing the new Batman movie. Early reviews are in and people are raving about it. They’re really hyping Heath Ledger’s performance as the Joker, saying he might have a legitimate shot at winning an Oscar.

Batman has always been my favorite superhero. I grew up on the semi-lame ‘60’s TV series and have seen all of the movies, even the really bad ones starring George Clooney with perky nipples on his bat suit. To me, the classic Batman is the one from the ‘50s. I haven’t been a huge fan of “The... (more)

Hanging Out On The Square, While I Still Can

By TCBlair, published on Jul 9, 2008

...attend Kindergarten in McKinney but that hardly qualifies me as a lifer or even a half-lifer. I was raised in the surrounding areas of McKinney and went to schools outside McKinney's city limits. But McKinney was were everyone went to "get out of town" and "have a good time". McKinney had the movie theater, the good restaurants, a few plays, andthe old courthouse where the biggest christmas tree in the area was erected every year. So I naturally migrated to the "hip" city as soon as I was able, and I have loved every minute of it.

This past weekend my friends and Ihung out at a... (more)

Wall-e Fails To Entertain

By D. E. Carson, published on Jul 4, 2008

The newest offering by Disney and Pixar should have been a slam-dunk for entertainment, but at 1 hour and 37 minutes WALL-E crashes and burns like the Hindenburg. The best parts of the movie are played for anyone who wants to see them. Just go to Yahoo! Movies and you can watch all of the trailers there for free and save your money. It’s not even worth waiting for the DVD.

I was very disappointed. I had high expectations for a movie that would keep me entertained much like the old Herbie movies. My expectations were obviously too high. Pixar failed to deliver on the promises made by... (more)

Popeye

By DLFerguson, published on Jun 26, 2008

...ProductionsDirected by Robert AltmanProduced by Robert EvansWritten by Jules FeifferBased on the “Thimble Theater” comic strip created by E.C. Segar POPEYE is kinda like the bastard child that nobody talks about or even acknowledges at family reunions. Whenever discussions about movies based on comic books or comic strips are mentioned nobody ever remembers POPEYE. Hell, people remember really obscure films based on comic strips such as “Friday Foster” starring Pam Grier or “Brenda Starr” with Brooke Shields and Timothy Dalton. But I mention... (more)

I Love L A...

... or Raiders as much as we probably should. You can be a sports fan year round in this town.

Sports not your thing? Entertainment can be had in the Entertainment capital of the world, LA. Don't let anyone else tell you different. Despite the runaway production fear of the industry, more movies and TV productions are shot here than anywhere else. Drive down any particular street, on any particluar day, and you can probably find a film crew cranking away at their latest opus.

If you want to see the finished product, there's probably a movie theater or Drive-In near you.... (more)

Fire Destroys Universal Studios Back Lot

By D. E. Carson, published on Jun 2, 2008

At 4:30 this morning fire broke out on the Universal Studios back lot, an area famous for being the location for many movies and television shows. The fire burned for almost 12 hours before being extinguished by Los Angeles fire fighters. Fire department officials did not allow the famous Universal Studios theme park and adjacent Universal City Walk to open for business today. Patrons waited patiently outside the gates of the park waiting for word on when they could enter. As time passed, patrons were given water to combat the heat of the day. Finally at 2:00, park officials declared... (more)

The 80s Are Back!

By D. E. Carson, published on May 29, 2008

Okay, I don’t usually do this, but last weekend I wrote a review of the new Indiana Jones movie and got the following response from Morgana:

The 80's are back: Gasoline is up and Japanese cars are in, I think the Celtics and Lakers are up from what the guys tell me, and Indy has another adventure.

Which then prompted me to write:

The 80s are back? Cool! Now, where's the hot babes in spandex with leg warmers and really BIG hair??? Time to pull out my Flock of Seagulls, Whitesnake, Def Lepperd, Van Halen and Rick Springfield records and party like it's 1999! All we need... (more)
