Top 5 Korean Films You MUST See!

5. THE WARRIOR (2001) Directed By: Sung-su Kim Starring: Woo-sung Jung, Ziyi Zhang, Sung-kee Ahn Plot: In 1375 China a group of exiled warriors battle to save and then protect a Chinese Ming princess from Mongolian troops with the hope to get a ship home. This relatively unheard of film is a true action epic masterpiece that will cater to fans of films such as BRAVEHEART and GLADIATOR. The scenery is breathtaking and begs for a blu-ray release. The action is brutal, intense, and well choreographed. This film has some of the best scenes with a bow and arrow I’ve ever seen....

Movie Trailer: CONAN THE BARBARIAN

Thanks to Yahoo Movies we finally get our first real look at the CONAN THE BARBARIAN remake from director Marcus Nispel (PATHFINDER, TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE remake) starring relative unknown Jason Momoa (STARGATE: ATLANTIS, BAYWATCH) as Conan himself. The film co-stars the awesome Stephan Lang (AVATAR, TOMBSTONE) and the beautiful Rose McGowan (PLANET TERROR, CHARMED). I have to admit that the small teaser trailer we got earlier in the year was such a joke that I did not even humor it with a post. This new trailer is the real deal and gives us a true sense of what to...

Movie Review: FAST FIVE

FAST FIVE is the perfect way to kick start the 2011 summer movie season and is simply a fun ride. The fifth installment of the Fast and Furious series is by far the best and most action packed of the bunch. This feels much more like a reboot of sorts rather than a full on sequel. While there are references to past movies, newcomers will not feel left out and be able to jump on board right away. Justin Lin (THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS: TOKYO DRIFT, FAST AND FURIOUS) returns to the series for the third time and brings along...

Movie Trailer – Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Thanks to Apple Trailers we finally get our first real trailer for Michael Bay’s (ARMAGEDDON, THE ISLAND) amazing looking summer action blockbuster TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON. If you thought the 30 second teaser shown during the Super Bowl was cool you have not seen anything yet. This bad ass trailer reinforces the fact that Bay is the master of action, ass kicking, and explosions. This trailer simply rocks and has me more than excited to see this one in theaters! This is the third Transformers movie and likely last one directed by Bay and it looks like he...

Movie Trailer: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2

I can’t believe it’s almost time to say goodbye to the Harry Potter film franchise. The latest installment HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS – PART 2 will mark the 8th movie in this long running series. I am a pretty big fan of these films and have seen each and every one of them in theaters. I am admittedly not a reader of the books, but will surely visit them once the film series comes to an end. We finally get an official trailer for this summer release and I must say this looks to be the most...

X-MEN: FIRST CLASS opens June 3rd...

Arnold Schwarzenegger is BACK as The Terminator!

After 2009’s TERMINATOR SALVATION, the rights to the Terminator franchise were up for sale and bought by Pacificor for roughly 30 million dollars during a bankruptcy auction. Now word comes from Deadline that Schwarzenegger has signed a package deal to return to the franchise for a reboot/revival. The package deal is currently being shopped around with Arnold on board to companies such as Universal, Sony, and Lionsgate. What does this mean for us nerds who are eagerly awaiting Arnold’s return as our favorite cybernetic organism? Having him part of this package deal means he is on board to star...

Nintendo officially confirms next console to be released in 2012!

This past week there have been a lot of rumors regarding a new Nintendo home console to succeed the Nintendo Wii. While it likely will not be called the Wii2, Nintendo has given it the code name “Project Cafe”. That title will likely not stick either and just serves as a tentative title used when referring to the new system.  Some of the rumors spreading through the Internet about the new console is that Project Cafe will be the most powerful system on the market when releases in 2012, it will feature full 1080p HD graphics, the game discs...

SMALLVILLE series finale teaser trailer with Lex Luthor!

Rosenbaum left the show back in 2008 and his return for the series finale was up in the air for a long time. But fear not, he WILL be back to end the series with a bang and the teaser trailer below proves it!  I for one am a huge fan of SMALLVILLE and have been a loyal viewer watching every episode for the past 10 years. I am relieved to know Lex Luthor will be there...

Second X-MEN: FIRST CLASS movie trailer looks fantastic!

While this new trailer for X-MEN: FIRST CLASS is not that much different from the first one I previewed awhile back (seen here), it does have enough new content to get me even more excited for this film. We get some more action, a better feel for this films tone, and a cool first look at the mutant Banshee in motion! I’m over the fact that the X-Men film universe is completely different from it’s comic book roots and have decided to just enjoy these movies for that they are; a re-imagining of the X-Men world. It’s just more...

First look at BATMAN: YEAR ONE animation

DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation is about to translate one of the most iconic stories in Batman’s long history into a feature length straight-to-video cartoon. BATMAN: YEAR ONE is going to be an adaptation of the 1987 Frank Miller comic of the same name that was illustrated by David Mazzucchelli. It was a four part comic book series that chronicled the early days of Batman as a costumed hero and showcased the early bond Batman created with Lieutenant James Gordon. While die hard fans of the comic book series may be a little hesitant, executive producer Bruce Timm...

Movie Review: HANNA

HANNA is simply a surprising and beautiful film directed by Joe Wright (PRIDE & PREJUDICE, ATONEMENT) starring the young and talented Saoirse Ronan (ATONEMENT, THE LOVELY BONES) as Hanna, Eric Bana (TROY, STAR TREK) as her father/mentor, and Cate Blanchett (THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON, BABEL) as a ruthless intelligence agent. HANNA tells the story of a 16 year old girl (Saoirse) who is raised in the wilderness by her overprotective father (Bana) who trains her to be a deadly assassin and teaches her everything she needs to know in order to survive. Soon Hanna is dispatched by...

He soon discovers he is in a program called the “Source Code” that allows one to relive the last 8 minutes of some one’s life and has been instructed to investigate who blew up the train by reliving those 8 minutes over and over. Each time he returns to the “Source Code” he must search out new clues and investigate different people to get to...

Movie Trailer: RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES

The first official trailer for RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES has finally hit the Internet. This PLANET OF THE APES prequel is directed by relative unknown Rupert Wyatt (THE ESCAPIST) and stars James Franco (YOUR HIGHNESS, SPIDER-MAN Trilogy) who I am convinced has cloned himself multiple times to be in as many films and projects as he is currently. The trailer itself seems pretty eerie and I am totally digging the vibe. This prequel is now on my nerd radar and I look forward to seeing it late this summer. It’s time to load up your Netflix...

New Bond officially confirmed for 2012!

In 2006 audiences were treated to CASINO ROYALE starring Daniel Craig (COWBOYS & ALIENS, THE GOLDEN COMPASS) which was a fresh reboot of the Bond franchise and was followed in 2008 by the equally awesome sequel QUANTUM OF SOLACE. Fans of the series understandably assumed Bond would be back in 2010 with the next installment (following the 2 year pattern) but financial issues at MGM put a hold on production indefinitely. It seemed that all was lost and that the franchise was going to stay on indefinite hold, until now. It has been reported that MGM will get the...

Official Superman Reboot Title Revealed as well as Main Villain!

Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman reboot will now officially be called MAN OF STEEL. On top of that cool news we get word that under appreciated actor Michael Shannon (HBO’s BOARDWALK EMPIRE, REVOLUTIONARY ROAD) has been cast as General Zod who will be the main villain in the upcoming Reboot. What a fantastic choice! I am very fond of Shannon’s work on HBO’s BOARDWALK EMPIRE and I believe he will be perfect for this big role. Here are a few words from Snyder: Snyder: “Zod is not only one of Superman’s most formidable enemies, but one of the most significant because...

Sylvester Stallone WILL direct THE EXPENDABLES 2!

UPDATE: It looks like the tides have shifted yet again and Simon West (CON AIR) will now be the director of THE EXPENDABLES 2! Thanks to Expendables Premiere we get word that THE EXPENDABLES 2 will star AND be directed by Stallone himself once again. Reports earlier in the year suggested that Stallone would reprise his starring role but he would hand directing duties off to someone else. Looks like those reports will not come true after all and we will have Sly in the directing chair once again where he belongs. While no official word on what cast members...

THE CROW reboot gets a new director!

A reboot of THE CROW has been brewing in Hollywood for years now with little success. Back in 2008 Stephen Norrington (BLADE, THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN) publicly showed interest in a reboot as director with a rumor that Mark Wahlberg (THE DEPARTED, THE FIGHTER) was up for the titular role. That obviously never worked out and it has been announced that director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 WEEKS LATER, INTACT) has officially signed on for a new fresh start for the project. THE CROW reboot will come from the production company “Relativity” with producer Edward R. Pressman (THE CROW,...
