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...

Summer Movie Awards Part 1: Surprise Hit, Biggest Bombs & More

G.I. Joe
Now that Labor Day has come and gone, the official end to summer has now passed. Yes, the days will now be shorter, the weather cooler (unless you're smart enough to live in Southern California like this column's scribe), and for some school resuming its session, but there's also a lot of good news.

TV is back, football is back, and summer movie season is finally at its end. Yes, no more summer movies, no more endless weekends filled with event films that shatter theater speakers and routinely melt screens with too much rambunctious action. It's a thankful end to a season that routine...

After a pleasant chat with Scout Taylor, PopEater got the chance to talk with Rob Zombie, the director of Halloween II.

On Possibly Branching Out Into Non-Horror Genres: "Sure ... I like dark, violent material but moreso I like it more in crime movies ... I wish someone would have offered me the remake of 'The Taking of Pelham 123' because that's like my favorite movie of all time. Something like that."

On the Best Kill Scene in Movie History: "There's a scene in 'American History X' where Edward Norton makes the guy bite the curb and then stomps on the back of the guy's head. That is...

The Ugly Truth
Ok, we are almost through the summer season of film, and I, for one, feel like I am trying to resuscitate an almost dead corpse. Sure, there were hits, good films, and technical blockbuster hits, but were they really great or just great within their summer context?

The Blockbusters

Just because a movie generates revenue at the box office does not necessarily translate into a successful well-loved film. X-Men Origins: Wolverine for instance, didn't exactly start the season off with a bang. Star Trek was loved by both fans and non-fans; something that was a bit of a worry before th...

Denzel Washington Wishes His 'Pelham 123' Costar John Travolta Well

6/8/2009 9:50am EDT
The Taking of Pelham 123
John Travolta has not been available to discuss the making of his latest film, The Taking of Pelham 123. Still mourning the sudden loss of his son Jett, Travolta has remained private. His costar in the film, Denzel Washington, assured Travolta's fans and sympathizers that he has been checking in on the family.

"I talked with John about two-and-a-half-weeks ago, and needless to say, he's struggling," Washington said. "He's struggling. More than talking to him, I listened to him for about two or three hours. So, it's going to take time."

Certainly, when dealing with the loss of a ch...

Imagine That
Following up from last week, "The Hangover" turned out to be a hilarious movie. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it. I liked it so much that I actually ended up seeing it twice. For a more in-depth discussion of the movie, feel free to check out my review.

This week there are four movies premiering - two thrillers, a comedy, and a drama. We have "The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3," "Moon," "Imagine That," and "Tetro."


In this remake of the 1974 film, "The Taking of Pelham One Two Three" a New York City subway dispatcher named Walter Garber (D...

Starpulse's Explosive Summer Movie Preview

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...
