31 Days Of Horror: 'Saw' (2004)

October 20th, 2010 2:07pm EDT
Saw
Ever since Saw came out way back in 2004, I’ve heard nothing but belly aching from movie-goers and horror-goons alike over how the movie ushered in a new era of gore-porn. That because of Saw, as well as Hostel, its pseudo sister-movie, all horror movies started to forgo any attempt at story telling in favor of graphic depictions of peoples’ heads getting shoved into bear-traps or corn threshers. I also recall it being quite buzzed about before its release, only to be met with cold to tepid reviews upon its actual release. So, keeping its reputation in mind, I skipped past watching Saw, Saw...

Spain Drops X-Rating On 'Saw VI'

August 4th, 2010 12:12am EDT
Saw VI
Horror movie "Saw VI" will finally be released in Spain this October after producers cut several of the gory sequel's most violent scenes to secure a more universal rating in the country.

The sixth installment of the popular franchise was slapped with an X rating by Spanish film censors last year, meaning it could only be shown in theatres which allowed porn.

Its release in Spain was postponed and "Saw VI's" producers went back to the cutting room to re-edit the release.

They have now adhered to the rules set out by officials at the film institute, a unit of the culture ministry, who dem...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Saw VI,' 'Vampire's Assistant' & More

October 19th, 2009 9:43am EDT
Cirque du Freak
Last Tuesday, I had a chance to see "Where the Wild Things Are." Visually the film is stunning; it integrates handheld camera shots in the appropriate moments to take viewers into the action. Jim Henson's Creature Shop makes the monsters of the movie look incredibly convincing, and the composite animation of their faces matches up well.

Spike Jonze and Dave Eggers do a fantastic job of stretching a 10 page children's book into a movie that doesn't distort the message of the book, but still gives audiences something fresh. One of the most fascinating aspects of the creatures the hero M...

Funny People
The column formerly known as "This Week's Movie Buzz" has a new name: "Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies." Fear not dear readers, the structure of the article you know and love will not be changing at all.

At Starpulse, we decided to change the name because we believe "Trailer Talk" more accurately reflects the column's subject matter. The insight and advice that I provide you on a weekly basis is based primarily on my viewing of movie trailers.

I do not have a chance to see most of the films before I actually recommend them to you. That being said, I do give confirmation if I ...
