Seattle area science fiction fans just received some of the greatest news ever as the Seattle Cinerama will be hosting a two week festival of classic sci-fi movies including everything from War of the Worlds and Close Encounters of the Third Kind to Ghostbusters and The Matrix!
It seems like in most movies where there is a good versus evil story, the villain tends to steal the spotlight away from the hero and ends up being the more colorful of the two characters. This is definitely the case as Julia Roberts throws everything she has at creating a deliciously fun take on The Queen in this new version of the classic Snow White story.
"The World Will be Watching" is a very appropriate slogan for a movie that goes in to its release date with a huge built in fan base that has devoured a story originally presented over three best selling novels.
With high expectations firmly in place, the movie's success will depend on big box office numbers and that means recreating a story that will please both fans of the books and also those, like myself, that know virtually nothing about the story going in.
The return to the big screen of one of the most cherished animated characters of all time was a welcome addition to the year's crop of family friendly movies. Watching the honey loving bear and his friends in a an all new adventure is always a special treat to be shared by children and those that still remember what it was like.
This may be surprising, but this is the first Woody Allen movie that I have ever watched. I'm sure I've missed out on some really interesting films over the years, but none of them have really looked very appealing to me. "Midnight in Paris" may not have been the best starting point to enter in to Mr. Allen's universe, but this is where my journey begins.
At first glance, "21 Jump Street" looks like the result of a movie studio attempting to cash in on yet another property from the 80's, but the end result goes far beyond that assumption with a really fun story that stays current while finding unique ways to both pay homage to and ridicule a decade that a lot of people really don't want to relive.
With a release schedule full of big blockbusters, Super Hero franchises, hilarious comedies, intensely dramatic feature films, shocking horror flicks, and a bunch of smaller and independent films that you may have never heard of, 2012 looks like it could be a banner year for the industry.
After asking the Two Oh Six audience which movies they are looking forward to the most, we have compiled our list of the top 10 most anticipated films for this year...chosen by you!
This is yet another movie that is supposedly inspired by true events although you never really know how much of it is based on anything at all. "Silent House" does employ a film making technique that is actually really cool compared to some of the other gimmicks out there and gives the viewer a different perspective on watching how the movie plays out.
"Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" is based on a novel by Paul Torday and is directed by Lasse Hallström who also brought Chocolat, Slumdog Millionaire, and What's Eating Gilbert Grape to the screen. The movie stars Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt, and Kristin Scott Thomas in roles that are absolutely perfect for each of them.
Disney is hoping that "John Carter" will be a very successful and popular movie that can then become a franchise with the potential for several future installments. Based on a story that has a very rich history as a series of science fiction novels written by Edgar Rice Burroughs, this movie is based on the first novel which was titled "Princess of Mars".
Todd Phillips has definitely become Hollywood's resident party expert having produced classics like Old School and the Hangover movies. With Project X, he takes the audience back to high school and throws a party that every teenage kid wishes they had been responsible for.
Focusing on neighborhoods in and around the city of Seattle, this monthly bar crawl series gives people an opportunity to see new places, visit favorite haunts, and hang out with an ever changing group of friends over the course of one fun-filled evening.
Easily the most hyped movie of any 2009 release partly due to the fact that this film and world was created by Mr. “King of the World” himself, James Cameron. He seems to carry a lot of baggage and expectation to everything he does although after making the highest grossing movie of all time in Titanic, you can’t really blame people for the reaction.
Aside from all of that, Cameron continues to put his heart and soul in to every film that he releases dating back to such great films as The Abyss, Aliens, Terminator 2, and even the Dark Angel TV series which starred a young and still unknown Jessica Alba.
