The Final Word On: the Anticipating Super-Fan

As many of you may already know, it’s been announced that veteran film maker David Cronenberg is slated to direct the next Ghost Rider movie. Nick Cage will be returning and they’re supposedly using the unused script David Goyer wrote for the first movie. Obviously, they can’t do worse than Mark Steven Johnson‘s offering, but…

The Final Word On: Crappy Trailers

The following trailer for the Stepfather remake is a perfect example of how not to cut a preview if you had any intention of getting viewers into theatres to watch your movie. A movie trailer should be just enough of the film’s flavor to wet your appetite to see it. You should not be giving…

The Final Word On: District 9

It Freakin” Rocks! This is it for sci-fi movies for a while, man. Michael Bay are you listening? This is how you do Transformers! I loved Iron man, but even the Iron-team should take some notes before finishing their sequel. That is just how great this movie is. Now, I”m not normally a fan of…

Knowing Is Half the Battle

Right before the new summer blockbuster drops, there have been some seriously disgusting events that have transpired near enough to my person, that I feel it necessary to start this new feature.
