C'mon Hollywood: Get back to the gore, Peter Jackson!

Sticking closely to shoe-string budgeted films and appropriately titled "splatstick" horror comedies, Peter Jackson wasn't exactly the biggest name being passed around the film community back in the day. It wasn't until he received recognition for his work on HEAVENLY CREATURES that he was able to break away from the cult director status he associated himself with and before long,...

C'mon Hollywood: Let's get Jim Carrey back on track!

We all know that Jim Carrey is a funny guy. With a resume full of projects that range from ACE VENTURA: PET DETECTIVE and LIAR LIAR † to his work on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE and IN LIVING COLOR , it's hard to find someone who hasn't been amused by at least one thing he's appeared in. However, as funny as Carrey can be, his filmography isn't without its clunkers, especially lately....

C'mon, Hollywood: Where is our next great American action film?

It seems like action movies from the U.S. these days just arenít all that great, you know? Aside from comic book adaptations, giant robots and Jason Statham vehicles, itís pretty slim pickings for an action junkie looking to get his rocks off cinematically speaking. The last great action movie I can think of at the top of my head is easily THE RAID: REDEMPTION and you can imagine...

C'mon, Hollywood: Please don't ruin our 90's nostalgia!

I'm not sure if this is a good or bad thing, but I'm a nostalgic bastard. If it came out before the harsh realities of life set in and I was just another happy lad (the 90's), I probably remember and look back on it fondly. Hollywood, however, has a knack for having its way with those memories. I can't imagine, for example, growing up with STAR WARS and standing in line waiting to...

C'mon, Hollywood: Don't let The Expendabelles become a generic chick flick!

Not too long ago, there was an announcement of an all female version of THE EXPENDABLES hitting theaters, called THE EXPENDABELLES , which I personally thought sounded supremely awesome. While we've gotten films like UNDERWORLD , RESIDENT EVIL and KILL BILL featuring women kicking ass and taking names, this would be the first time a movie had so many gals†doing that†at the same...

C'mon, Hollywood: Here's what Disney should do with Indiana Jones

Indiana Jones is easily one of the most iconic and badass characters to have ever graced the silver screen. Some people had the original STAR WARS trilogy mold their childhood, but mine was always set with the Indiana Jones films. Unfortunately in 2008, a lot of the magic was ruined with INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL and to keep from experiencing all out...

C'mon, Hollywood: Is television about to experience superhero overload?

I think all of us can agree that comic books are f*cking awesome. They have no doubt been a huge inspiration for our generation and it shows with the rapidly increasing amount of comic book adapted films and television shows. People are finally able to see their favorite comic book/graphic novel characters come to life, both on the big screen and the small one. However, with so many new...

C'mon, Hollywood: Why haven't we gotten a Don't, Thanksgiving or Werewolf Women of the S.S. movie yet?

When I snuck into GRINDHOUSE almost seven years ago, it only took me about five minutes to realize just how good of a time I was about to have and it's still easily one of the best experiences I've had in a movie theater. One thing that I personally hadn't seen before was the use of fake movie trailers and it was something that I had an absolute blast with. Years later, we've finally...

C'mon, Hollywood: Stop ripping off the visual style of other films!

Charles Caleb Colton once wrote, "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery." When you take a second to think about it, that makes a whole lot of sense, especially in the scrambling world of Hollywood. When a film is released and it has a specific look or style to it, someone is bound to see it and be inspired by it and they'll, in turn, want to use those aspects in their own films....

C'mon, Hollywood: Let's give Robert De Niro some better material!

With GRUDGE MATCH being released and met with such lukewarm reception, it only reminds me that the once great Robert De Niro hasn't had the hottest track record of late. Now, every actor has his or her string of substandard films, but the amount that has plagued him lately is straight up unfortunate. There was a time when one thought of De Niro, films like CASINO , GOODFELLAS and...

C'mon, Hollywood: Does Scarlett Johansson deserve a little awards love?

The Golden Globe nominees were announced a few weeks ago with no real surprises or out of the blue shocks, except of course for there being no love for PRISONERS (see the full list right over here if you so please). I don't know how seriously you folks take this award show, or any award show for that matter, but I personally love seeing these ceremonies take place because movies are...

C'mon, Hollywood: Why exactly did Oldboy bomb?

Remakes are always controversial no matter who's attached to the project, the number of years it's been since the original was released, how good the first one was, etc. With directors ranging from Justin Lin to Steven Spielberg , the OLDBOY remake eventually became Spike Lee's responsibility and after playing a very long waiting game, the film has finally come and hit theaters with...
