Movie Jail: This week's defendant is...Ray Liotta!

This is Movie Jail, a unique maximum security prison that houses some of the worst writers, directors, actors and producers from Hollywood and beyond. Their crimes? The offenses vary from convict to convict but most of these inmates have contributed negatively to the film world to some capacity and his or her misdeeds have covered a long enough period of time that the authorities had...

Top 10 Movies of 2012 (Chris Bumbray)

Here we are again! Yet another year draws to a close, and overall 2012 has been an absolutely top-notch year for movies. We saw Christopher Nolan's DARK KNIGHT sage draw to a superb (if controversial) close, along with movies like THE AVENGERS and SKYFALL -- which proved that a movie can make billions and still be good...heck, maybe even great. Before we get to the good stuff though, I feel...

C'mon Hollywood: Is TV kicking film's ass?

SPOILER WARNING: The show clips below may contain spoilers.  Be warned.  Also, be warned that they're awesome . I can’t pinpoint exactly when, but I think it was the pilot for Lost that my perception of TV changed forever. The plane crash and resulting mindf*ck of an opener left me stunned and elated. Every frame of that pilot felt like I should’ve been...

Poster Round-up: Jurassic Park 3D, Neuromancer, Killing Them Softly, and Zero Dark Thirty

Lots of new posters today, and all of them better than that crappy teaser poster for WORLD WAR Z. First up we have the poster for JURASSIC PARK 3D. No, not a new movie, just the re-release of the original Steven Spielberg movie, now in gloriously unnecessary 3D. I am left wondering when this trend will stop seeing as post-converting any non-digital movie to 3D looks like shit. I love...

Killing Them Softly and Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning each pick up a set of three new posters

First up today we have KILLING THEM SOFTLY, a film which continues its trend of securing some truly stellar poster art to the point where it's really just not fair for most of the other films that have yet to be released this year. The images are not only well constructed and beautifully rendered, but they also play the film's violence and mob-based plot against an exploration of the...
