Even if you accept the preposterous high concept that a Communist coalition led by North Korea would actually invade and attempt to occupy the United States, “Red Dawn” will still find ways to make you question its logic.
Ok, folks, here we are! One of the major movie release seasons of the year is upon us, The Holiday Movie Season!
The Holidays started a little early this year, with “Skyfall” (undeniably a major release) opening in the first week of November. So we’re underway! Between now and the end of the year, we’ll see some of the biggest films on the 2012 docket get released, including the conclusion to the “Twilight” Saga, “The Hobbit”, and “Django Unchained”!

In all honesty, I had rejected this movie in my mind prior to going into it.
Snow White is not some warrior in shining armor leading an army. She’s not. Snow White wears that blue and red and yellow taffeta dress with the poofy freaking shoulders and when she’s not hanging with her dwarfish friends or chowing apples, she sings to birds. Ok? That’s Snow White.
So perhaps this is all overreaction to my complete underestimation of it, but “Snow White and the Huntsman” was an excellent, highly entertaining movie. More than just a retelling of the Snow White tale, it’s an epic fantasy story, replete with mythical creatures, knights in armor, a princess in a tower and a very, very wicked witch.
I don’t know if it’s the fairest of them all, but it’s easily worth a trip to the movies.
Tank and I are back with another episode of The (title pending) Movie Podcast for you, and this week, it’s review city! Each of us got out to all three big releases this weekend, so after the box office roundup, we go over all of them together – Lockout! The Three Stooges! The Cabin in the Woods! It’s a review extravaganza! Be sure to check it out!
We’d also like to take a minute to thank everyone who left such positive feedback last week, whether it was here, on Facebook, or on Twitter. It was a really great response, and I just wanted to thank everyone. A SPECIAL thanks to everyone who left us a review on iTunes! Those help us out, and we received quite a few of them last week, so thank you!
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before – five college students take a vacation at a creepy, deserted cabin in the woods. They intend to party and hook up in the midst of all the scenic natural beauty, but they’re interrupted by… something horrific.
Of course you’ve heard it, it’s like the basic plot of one out of every six horror movie ever made. But “Cabin in the Woods” is decidedly different. Right from the opening it informs the audience that everything is not as it seems, and then proceeds to unfold a witty, self-aware, genre-exceeding, half-parody that’s entertaining and enjoyable to watch, especially for fans of the horror genre.
