It’s hard to believe that it was 30 years ago that the story of an alien and his friendship with a little boy came into theaters and stole all our hearts away, but that’s the case with Steven Spielberg’s E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. In honor of this milestone, the movie is now being released on Blu-Ray for the first time ever, and we interviewed Dee Wallace, who starred in the movie as the boy’s mother. You can check out the interview below!

Dear Readers, I imagine it will surprise many of you–especially those who return week after week to read my latest, and often totally sappy, chick-flick-related thoughts–to know that The Godfather is one of my all-time favorite movies (and, for that matter, so is The Godfather: Part II…but not Part III). In fact, The Godfather, by Mario Puzo, is also one of my [...]
“Rap saved my life,” Ice-T says in his opening monologue for Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap, and it’s a statement that defines the entire film. This directorial debut from the rap star isn’t a story about the glamorous lifestyle that its stars often lead, nor one about the notorious violence sometimes synonymous with [...]
Sound of My Voice is one of the most unsettling films I have seen of late. Directed by Zal Batmanglij this unique sci-fi thriller stars Christopher Denham, Nicole Vicius, and Brit Marling.

Moonrise Kingdom director Wes Anderson is a master at poignantly depicting those who are a bit different from most of the other characters in the world around them. Regardless of gender, era, and even species, Anderson manages to perfectly represent characters that we can all relate to in one way or another. Here, we’ve highlighted [...]
I don’t want to write a “review” of Rian Johnson’s movie Looper per se. It’s certainly one of the more interesting films of the year, and the direction and acting is top-notch. Instead I want to discuss whether or not the movie follows its own internal logic and actually comes together to make any sort of “sense.”

Each month I pick movies that are the must-see, cream of the crop. They’ll either be films coming out in theaters that week or something on Netflix I think that’s worth the watch. The top four films for the month will be ones that have the a lot of buzz, an interesting storyline and a [...]

To celebrate the DVD and Blu-Ray release of Season One of FX’s hit show, a select few American Horror Story fans in Hollywood (myself included!) were treated to a spooky good time in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery Tuesday evening. To start off the night, we were given a quick tour of the cemetery itself, [...]
The Paperboy, writer-director Lee Daniels’ follow-up to Precious, peddles in a similar type of fantasy grotesquerie as his unlikely Sundance sensation. It’s a difficult line to walk – despite the stellar performances of Mo’Nique and Gabourey Sidibe, the stabs at dark humor torpedoed any sense of propriety in the 2009 urban-misery drama. The Paperboy at [...]

Quickly after The Blair Witch Project kicked off the found footage craze and blurred the line between fact and fiction, the supposed authenticity of found footage became relegated to little more than a marketing gimmick. No one believes it to be real, no matter how much you try and sell it as so. Last year’s [...]

It’s safe to say that Tim Burton is one of the world’s most successful style as substance filmmakers, even if his films have increasingly displayed a frustrating tendency to emphasize design for its own sake. However, Burton returns with a renewed focus on storytelling in Frankenweenie, a black and white homage to classic monster movies [...]
Here is the first official trailer for Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Ranger starring Johnny Depp as Tonto and Armie Hammer as the ranger. I saw a brief clip from the film at Comic-Con, but this full trailer is here and its is glorious.
On Friday, Ang Lee’s Life of Pi kicked off the New York Film Festival and received high marks from the critics. The epic scale, lauded visual effects, and story about humanity might tug the heartstrings of Oscar voters, and if there’s a movie out there to grab “the heart vote,” this might be it. But [...]
