LittleFockers-121410-0001.jpg
Hopefully you have finished most of your Christmas shopping by now, but if you still need to brave the crowds for a few last minute gifts, I wish you the best of luck. If you do not celebrate Christmas though, and you'll be looking for something to do on December 25th, fear not, because there are plenty of movies coming out this week for you to see.

In preparation for the sequel, last week I released a review of the original “Tron” film which you can find here if you haven't checked it out yet. I also had the chance to watch the new movie “Tron: Legacy” which is visually stimulating and ...

Hailee Steinfeld
Up-and-comer Hailee Steinfeld had very little acting experience before landing a role in the much-anticipated film "True Grit" opposite Jeff Bridges and Josh Brolin.

'The Goonies 25th Anniversary Collector's Edition' On DVD & Blu-ray Nov. 2

November 2nd, 2010 6:52am EDT
Goonies
Leonard Maltin wasn't alone when he noticed similarities between "Goonies" and the 1934 Our Gang comedy "Mama's Little Pirate." Adapted by Chris Columbus from a story by Steven Spielberg, the film follows a group of misfit kids (including such second-generation Hollywoodites as Josh Brolin and Sean Astin) as they search for buried treasure in a subterranean cavern.

Here they cross the path of lady criminal Mama Fratelli (Anne Ramsey) and her outlaw brood. Fortunately, the kids manage to befriend Fratelli's hideously deformed (but soft-hearted) son (John Matuszak), who comes to their rescu...

Last Thursday I went to see “Easy A” starring Emma Stone, who has come into the mainstream with roles in “Superbad” and “Zombieland.” Stone plays Olive, a teenager that discovers the danger of rumors in high school the hard way. Olive unintentionally starts a rumor that she had sex and pretty soon it spreads to the entire school. She establishes a certain reputation among her peers for it, which at first she relishes. Over time though, it seriously alienates her from her friends, and she is forced to confront her choices.

Probably the most interesting aspect of the movie is Olive’s nar...

Comic book movies have really taken over the past few years, and it has encouraged writers to go looking for any character or graphic novel that hadn't yet been adapted to the screen. That must be the reason that Jonah Hex ever saw the light of day, because this dark and disjointed DC Comics character really does not seem like the best choice for a movie adaptation. He's horrifically scarred, cynical and bad tempered, and how many years has it been since a western really did well at the box office? The movie set was fraught with trouble, and it is already getting incredibly low scores from ...
