The Cabin in the Woods comes to DVD and BluRay

The Cabin in the Woods releases on DVD and BluRay on Tuesday September 18 and if you think this is just another teen slasher flick, well you are wrong.  The movie, co-written by Joss Whedon, is definitely a slasher style film but it also a comedy and probably not what you expected from the trailer.  I know I was surprised. The basic plot of the story is about five college-aged friends who take a trip … Read more

Dredd 3D Not a Remake

When I first heard about the remake of Judge Dredd I was appalled.  My thought was “can’t they come up with an original idea?”  Well after seeing the preview and reading about this upcoming film, I see now that it is not a remake after all. Announced in 2008 that the movie was in the writing stage, it was stated it would not be a remake of the 1995 film that starred Sylvester Stallone.  This … Read more

True Blood has ended for this season and fans won’t see it again until 2013; probably after the next season of Game of Thrones.  Part of the season ending was quite shocking and part was not.  Like most season finales of this show, based loosely off the books by Charlaine Harris, fans are left wondering just what in the heck will happen to their favorite characters.

Hollywood Remaking Movies: Lazy or Out of Ideas?

Is Hollywood truly so out of ideas that they have to remake everything from the last 20-30 years?  With many of the movies which have come out in the last year or so, and upcoming, it certainly seems like it.  Or have directors and writers become so lazy they don’t want to try something new?  Sure taking a gamble is scary but come on Hollywood, this remaking of movies is getting, well old. In the … Read more

Warehouse 13 Season 4 to Be the Best Yet

Warehouse 13 arrived with a bang last Monday in the season premier where the gang had to find something that reversed time to make the warehouse not blown up.  On one hand, the episode was intense because their numbers kept dwindling as they went from place to place but on the other, it was predictable because if they hadn’t found the components there would have been no warehouse and thus no Warehouse 13 show.  However, … Read more

Game of Thrones Gets Several Emmy Award Nominations

The Emmy Award nominees were announced this week and HBO’s series Game of Thrones received several.  Perhaps not nearly as many as fans of the show, based off the George R.R. Martin A Song of Ice and Fire novels, would have liked but any recognition is better than being shut out completely. The competition in several of the categories is fairly still, unfortunately, so Game of Thrones may not walk away with too many of these … Read more
