Jill is a waitress who works nights. After one shift, she returns home to find that Molly, her sister and roommate, has disappeared. From the first moment of that discovery, Jill is sure she knows the terrifying truth of what’s befallen her sibling. The hook of “Gone” is that everyone else has good reason to doubt not just Jill’s theory, but her sanity.
Jill believes Molly’s been abducted by the same psychopath who took Jill herself a year ago. This is dicey enough as a theory, but it turns out Jill’s own kidnapping was never proven. Her insistence Read the rest of this entry »
To be honest, I saw Little Shop of Horrors rather recently. I’m one of those people who went through www.TVByDirect.com, so I get a ton of movie channels and it just happened to be playing. I wasn’t too impressed until Audrey II made an appearance.
For those of you who don’t know, Little Shop is a dark comedy musical about a plant from Outer Space that manipulates his owner into feeding him people. At first it starts with people “who deserve to die” and it quickly spirals out of control from there.
After Rick Moranis bumbles his way to victory through conflict and a Who’s Who of SNL cast members, the plant is subdued…or so we believed!
Imagine my surprise when it was announced that a newly remastered copy of the Director’s Cut was being released on the market!
It comes in both DVD and Blu-ray format packed full of extras including:
- Theatrical version with optional commentary
- A 20-minute alternate ending restored for viewing
- An introduction from the Muppet legend Frank Oz
- Outtakes and deleted scenes (also with commentary)
- Two theatrical trailers
That’s a whole lot of movie and a whole lot of Little Shop of Horrors. Seriously, folks…if you have a musical bone in your body and you haven’t seen this, you need to do something about that.
Just when you though that filmmakers couldn’t squeeze another ounce of fun out of the Journey series the Rock comes in. This, with a cast of youthful faces, made the Journey 2 an awesome adventure for many fans.
The Rock has been in lots of movies. Most of them are PG13. Every now and then he slips a PG movie under his belt to take care of the demands of his loyal youthful fan base. So far this chemistry has worked because the Dewayne “The Rock” Johnson is making millions at Read the rest of this entry »
When people take a look at the Chronicle trailer they are instantly blown away by how cool this concept seems. There are no big stars to carry the movie, but it still moves along all the same. The fact that these seemingly regular guys have superpowers is a super concept that lots of teenagers are falling for.
The reason this movie rocks is because it is not your everyday flick. It’s what one might refer to as a hybrid. It isn’t a superhero movie where people are expected to fly. It also isn’t a regular Read the rest of this entry »
Could you imagine forgetting the person that you love the most? Could you imagine being in a world where the things you hold so dear are a distant memory? This is where The Vow takes you. Rachel McAdams has done a wonderful job in making you believe that this is actually happening.
McAdams is probably most well known for her role in the Nicholas Sparks movie The Notebook. From there she has rose to fame to play along side huge Hollywood stars like Robert Downey, Jr. Read the rest of this entry »
“The Grey,” which stars Liam Neeson, deals with a middle aged, alpha male lead who is trying to lead a group of survivors through wolf infested Alaska after their plane goes down. The setup is pretty straightforward, and any film that offers such an unapologetic line to start things off with is going to have a lot of testosterone to live up to. Fortunately in that respect “The Grey” is a fantastic action film that shows it really doesn’t take much at Read the rest of this entry »
The film Man on a Ledge is now available on DVD for those who missed it while it was in theaters. The film stars Sam Worthington as Nick Cassidy, an ex-cop who in an attempt to clear his name climbs onto the ledge of a hotel and threatens to jump. The film has several great twists and turns as we figure out why Nick taken to such extreme measures. Sam Worthington turns in another great performance as the conflicted Cassidy. He plays the character very well by showing the conflict he’s going through as an ex-cop who Read the rest of this entry »
