Face-Off: Star Wars prequel trilogy vs. The Hobbit trilogy

Welcome back, thrill seekers! We took things easy with the last Face-Off, getting down and doing a funnyman battle of ANCHORMAN v.

This week we're going all in for an epic battle, spanning six movies, billions of dollars in box office totals, and about 175 hours of viewing time. Oh yeah, it's the STAR WARS...

Denis Villeneuve's Dune remake will be nothing like the David Lynch film

It's been quite a long time since I last watched David Lynch 's feature-film adaptation of Frank Herbert's DUNE, but it seems that I won't need to revisit it (although I should anyway) in order to get up to speed for Denis Villeneuve 's upcoming remake.

New micro-doc talks about the making of cult classic "Turkish Star Wars"

I've stated my love for bad movies many times before , and while there are a few films that get a lot of overexposed..."adoration"...from bad movie fans (your THE ROOMs, your BIRDEMICs, your FATEFUL FINDINGS), one always seems to slip through the cracks.

There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination.

Back in July, when myself and other select members of the JoBlo crew invaded this year's San Diego Comic-Con, we were fortunate enough to interview the cast of Fox's new sci-fi series THE ORVILLE. While I admit to not having seen the show just yet, I remember that I loved the energy and passion for the program coming from the show's primary cast members. While I'm...

A video on Stranger Things and its clever use of intertextuality

STRANGER THINGS is great. I don't think that's a controversial statement, but at the same time, there are a lot of valid critiques against it (like most things).
