NASA scientists have named John Cusack's blockbuster 2012 as the most "absurd" sci-fi film of all time.

Experts at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) put together a list of the least plausible science fiction movies ever made, and the big budget 2009 picture came top. The film, which depicted Earth besieged by natural disasters, featured ahead of two more 'end-of-the-world' movies - 2003's The Core and 1998's Armageddon.

Is CGI Technology Enough Of A Reason To Remake 'Clash Of The Titans'?

Clash of the Titans
As audiences get set for the update of "Clash of the Titans," many hardcore fans of the classic fantasy film are letting loose with that familiar cry of heresy. Sure, digital effects can look more "real" than the rubber and clay monsters created by legendary stop-motion animator Ray Harryhausen for the 1981 original, but better? "Better" is a subjective term.

Ask "Star Wars" geeks which Yoda they prefer. When Luke Skywalker landed on Dagobah in 1981's "The Empire Strikes Back," the Yoda he encountered was a foam and latex puppet, voiced and manipulated by Frank Oz. The "real" Jedi Master ...

Sarah's Cinema Musings: Do Film Critics Matter?

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
Posing this question is damning because I critique films and other productions, but it is relevant. This past week, after the release of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Public Enemies, the issue of film critics came to a particularly strong head. I do not read film reviews. This is something that happens during the process of studying film. As we critics-in-training collected credit hours watching and analyzing countless "art" films and auteur films (and drooled over the likes of Francois Truffaut and Alfred Hitchcock), we got swelled heads, thinking we knew best.
