'Dallas Buyers Club': McConaughey and Leto Deserve Nominations Come Oscar Time

November 8th, 2013 9:51am EST
Dallas Buyers Club
First thing I must say is that, Matthew McConaughey has become one hell of an actor. From ‘Killer Joe’ to ‘Paper Boy’ followed by ‘Mud’ and now ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ he gives nothing less than stellar performances.

‘Dallas Buyers Club' is based on true events and is the story of one man’s determination to survive, against all odds.

The year is 1985, the place Dallas Texas. McConaughey plays Ron Woodroof, a 35 year old electrician and rodeo cowboy.  He lives a life filled with unprotected sex, booze, drugs and hanging out with his homophobic friends.

Except for a few bouts of dizziness, Ro...

TV On DVD: 'Treme: The Complete First Season' [Blu-Ray]

Treme
Today, HBO Home Entertainment releases the first season of the critically acclaimed Treme on both DVD and Blu-Ray. Here's a look at what's inside the four-disc Blu-Ray edition.

The Show

I've been a fan of David Simon's work since he was a Baltimore Sun beat writer who penned the book Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets. Everything he's done for TV - Homicide: Life on the Street, The Wire, The Corner - has been fantastic, and Treme is no exception.

This series, set in New Orleans post-Hurricane Katrina, boasts an impressive cast. There's Khandi Alexander (The Corner, CSI: Miami, New...

Review: 'A Perfect Getaway' With A Twist

August 6th, 2009 3:26pm EDT
A Perfect Getaway
The less you know about "A Perfect Getaway" going in, the better you will be served. It's the type of film you walk out of saying, "Well, I actually didn't see that twist coming" (It's not giving too much away revealing that a film like this would have a twist, a real twist would be if it didn't have a twist). And even say, perhaps, "Wait, was that a good movie?" You know, it almost isn't a good movie. Until, well, "it" happens. Oh, when "it" happens, this goes from your average late summer thriller to something quite different. The crazy thing is that "it" happens right smack in the middle...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies 7/26 - 8/1

August 3rd, 2009 11:08am EDT
G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra
Over the weekend, I caught Judd Apatow's new film "Funny People" starring Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen. "Funny People" lived up to my expectations; it's funny at points with an appropriate seriousness that's present throughout the movie.

I thoroughly enjoyed the bond that Sandler and Rogen's characters form over the course of the film. Rogen plays a socially awkward comic struggling to find his way, and Sandler is a jaded celebrity trying to make meaning out of his tragic situation. I was surprised by how unlikable Sandler's character is at points, revealing that his problems in life a...

Starpulse's Explosive Summer Movie Preview

May 1st, 2009 10:06am EDT
Star Trek
Since the dawn of the American cinematic blockbuster in the late 1970s and early 1980s, moviegoers have eagerly waited for May - the unofficial beginning of summertime. This summer is no different. Films, and most popular media, are social mirrors, and this summer season supports that. The large box office contenders all deal with very similar themes: escapism and the support of the lone, outlaw hero figure (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, Up, Transformers 2, Public Enemies, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, Inglourious Basterds, et...

'Monk' Recap: Mr. Monk's Other Brother

January 14th, 2009 11:16am EST
Monk
It is time to watch the last of "Monk" season seven and mournfully await the last season beginning in the summer. It really is time for the show to end; better now than years down the line when it is unwelcome. Still, what will everyone do without the best detective in the world?

There's one person who needs Adrian Monk this week, and that is Jack Monk Jr. That's right, Monk has a little half-brother played by Steve Zahn who is a convict escaped from prison. He is wanted for the murder of a female prison guard, but he swears he did not do it. Zahn plays much the same role as he always...

The Best & Worst Films Starring Drew Barrymore

April 2nd, 2008 3:00pm EDT
Drew in 50 First Dates
There is perhaps no greater polarizing figure in the film world than Drew Barrymore. Very few waffle on Drew Barrymore's ability as an actress - you either love or hate her.

Some are entranced by the starlet's positive attitude and sunny demeanor. Others see that personality as a perfect compliment to her blonde hair. (Personally, we're pro-Drew, for who can hate a genuine sweetheart)? Either way, no one can deny that the actress has engaged her audience her entire life - from childhood celebrity to teenage addict to serial bride to nude poser. All the while, and quite amazingly, Barr...

February Movie Preview Review: 'Strange Wilderness,' 'Fool's Gold' & More

February 1st, 2008 9:41am EST
Fool
I'm a fan of previews. There are few joys in this world to 20 minutes of sitting back, relaxing, and forgetting what movie you actually came in to see.

Previews have become something of a mini movie festival, featuring loud music and explosions, two-second snippets of sex, and great one-liners. Most importantly, this festival is instrumental in deciding what movies most people will see for the next month.

Here's the million dollar question: why isn't anyone reviewing these previews? Look no further, here is your one-stop shop for preview reviews. This month we're looking at Str...
