'Bates Motel': An Intriguing Contemporary Prequel To 'Psycho'

March 18th, 2013 7:49am EDT
Bates Motel
NBCUniversal has two shows on in the next two months that will attempt to explain the twisted backstory of cinema’s most well-known murderers. Next month, on NBC, we’ll learn about the friendship between cannibal Hannibal Lecter and an FBI agent in Hannibal. And this coming Monday on A&E, we’ll learn what happened during his teenage years to cause Norman Bates to impersonate his dead mother and murder a young woman in the shower.

But first things first, Bates Motel isn’t a direct prequel to the film Psycho. It can’t be—Bates Motel is set in contemporary time, something you might not pick u...

Go Right By 'The Art Of Getting By' When Considering Next Movie.

July 5th, 2011 11:38pm EDT
Blair Underwood wonders why he's in this movie. I do too.
“The Art of Getting By” is a movie that’s playing at your local AMC Theater as an Indie attraction. AMC brings these movies to theaters every now and then to give general audiences a chance to see something a little different from exploding robots, pirates, and wizarding teenagers. I would have rather walked the plank.

The flick is about George (Freddie Highmore), an underachieving high school senior who has stopped doing his homework. The movie (sorry, film) starts with a monologue about how everyone is going to die someday, and that really trying or living or succeeding is a moot point, ...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Green Lantern,' 'Mr. Popper's Penguins,' & More

June 13th, 2011 2:00pm EDT
Green Lantern
I was impressed last week by the J.J. Abrams picture “Super 8,” which pays skillful homage to the craft of film’s executive producer on the project, Steven Spielberg. Abrams takes his own trademark intrigue and mashes it up with themes present in classic Spielberg stories like “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial” and “Jaws,” to create a movie that is both visually impressive and possesses heart. For more of my thoughts, check out my review if you haven’t already.

Hitting the box office this week are the Ryan Reynolds comic book vehicle “Green Lantern,” the Jim Carrey comedy “Mr. Popper’s Pe...

Who Will Replace Tobey Maguire In 'Spider-Man 4'?

January 12th, 2010 11:09am EST
Tobey Maguire
Yesterday it was announced that Tobey Maguire and Sam Raimi have left the production of Spider-Man 4, opening the door for a younger actor to put on the blue and red spandex. But who can continue the success of the $2.5 billion franchise?

First let's discuss the new direction of the fourth movie. While it may seem odd that a "prequel" can be written, when Peter Parker is bitten by the radioactive spider in the first Spider-Man movie, there is a loophole.

Marvel has a separate timeline featuring Spider-Man titled "Ultimate Spider-Man." In this version Peter Parker is 15 when he is fir...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Surrogates,' 'Pandorum' & More

September 22nd, 2009 10:27am EDT
Surrogates
I'm curious to see the reception of "Surrogates," at the box office this week. People I have spoken with seem to have mixed opinions about whether they think the movie will be enjoyable or not.

Their interest level in the movie seems to be linked to which trailer they have seen. Trailer 1 appears to be rather bland and doesn't do much to entice the viewer. Folks who have seen Trailer 2 however, agree that it does a better job of selling the concepts present in the film, as well as emphasizing Bruce Willis' struggle without his surrogate.

In addition to the sci-fi thriller "Surr...

Film Review: Reality Trumps Fantasy In 'Spiderwick Chronicles'

February 12th, 2008 5:29pm EST
The Spiderwick Chronicles
The Spiderwick Chronicles may not be in the same fantasy league as the tales of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis and J.K. Rowling. Yet the family flick based on the books of Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black is an all-around class act, even if its world of ogres and goblins is a bit stale in the wake of its more ambitious cousins in the over-the-rainbow genre.

The human characters are the main source of wonder here. Freddie Highmore, Sarah Bolger and Mary-Louise Parker authentically capture the fractured spirit of a family newly cast into single-parent mode, while David Strathairn adds a wistf...
