Movie Jail: This week's defendant is...Kiefer Sutherland!

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...

This Week in Blu-ray / DVD Releases: Pompeii, The Monuments Men...

This week: Lava-flowin' with Pompeii, Nazi-fightin' with Clooney, and shark-jumpin' with The Fonz. ► You can gripe about the factual inaccuracies of POMPEII all you want, but let’s face it – this shit happened in 79 AD. No one’s around to say otherwise. Director Paul W.S....

Top 10 Natural Disaster Movies (Video Edition)

POMPEII explodes onto screens today and marks the first big natural disaster movie in several years. But, going through movie history there has always been a desire for epic movies featuring huge volcanoes, earthquakes, floods, and widespread devastation. We will also have NOAH to look forward to this year, but there have been quite a few disaster movies of note that don't feature aliens or...

Face Off: Volcano vs. Dante's Peak

In last week's Face-Off column , filmmakers Paul Verhoeven and John McTiernan went up against each other. Considering the fantastic movies that they've both given us, I couldn't decide on a clear winner... and it looks like most of you agreed that it should be a tie! In honor of director Paul WS Anderson's historical adventure/romance/tragedy POMPEII arriving in theaters this weekend,...

There's no warning or escape but there's time for love on this poster for W.S. Anderson's Pompeii

I did say that I wanted to give POMPEII a chance. I did. I stand by that statement. However, the first poster for the film makes me feel like it needs a power ballad. I don't care which band sings it. Okay, I'd prefer a group from the early 80s or 90s. Maybe Air Supply. I feel like there's a real hit song here. I'd write the lyrics but you'd only make fun of how terrible they are though...

It's Jon Snow versus the volcano in the second trailer for Paul W.S. Anderson's Pompeii

You guys are going to kill me but I don't hate what I've seen for POMPEII. I have no shame in saying this either. Sure, it's not super spectacular but the cast features a lot of actors I like. So, f*ck it. I may not see it in theaters but I will eventually watch it on DVD. If you weren't into it then the second trailer might be more convincing. There's a ton more action here, not...

The most important part about these stills from Paul W.S. Anderson's Pompeii is Kiefer Sutherland

Are we looking forward to Paul W.S. Anderson 's POMPEII? Do we look forward to most W.S. Anderson flicks? I'm going to be completely and totally honest here-- I'm having a hard time saying no to this one-- especially after seeing this photo of Kiefer Sutherland as the evil senator. Yes, I don't mind seeing the photos of Kit Harington at all. AT ALL. However there are other...

Kit Harington saves his loved ones from a volcano in the trailer for Pompeii

Who's ready to check out this teaser trailer for W.S.. Anderson's POMPEII? C'mon! You know you're ready for some historical accuracy (inaccuracy?). Anderson may not hit a home run everytime, or most of the time but he does offer up good popcorn flicks. Let's not forget that he has had decent luck with his video game adaptations. I love you, MORTAL KOMBAT. Go away, ANNIHILATION!...

New images for W.S. Anderson's Pompeii and Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher

Today we have two new images from two completely different films. One of them I can't wait to see, the other I feel like I only want to see because of Kit Harington . Yes, I'm allowed to express my feelings for abs every great once in awhile. Eye candy is a good thing but not the most important. Since we're on the subject I'll go ahead and show you this still from W.S. Anderson's...

Paul W.S. Anderson's 3D disaster movie Pompeii adds cast and gets a February 2014 release date

Paul W.S. Anderson is by no means a great director. In fact, I would put the director of MORTAL KOMBAT and the RESIDENT EVIL franchise closer to the likes of Uwe Boll . But, unlike Boll, Anderson somehow makes movies that do well at the box office. His track record has shown incredible consistency amongst not very good movies. With that in mind, Anderson's upcoming historical...

Casting Round-Up: Kiefer Sutherland is going to Pompeii and Rufus Sewell joins Dwayne Johnson's Hercules

There's casting news on two different big-budget projects and I'm not going to lie the only reason I'm running the stories together is so I can reference DARK CITY. If you want to complain about it I'll make sure the Strangers pay you a visit. The disaster film POMPEII started filming last week in Toronto and has added Kiefer Sutherland to its cast according to THR. Sutherland joins...
