For those looking to prepare for Pacific Rim and dive into kaiju more deeply, here is Trey’s Top 10 Kaiju Movies.


The eighth Fantastic Fest is now officially underway! And while I can’t wait to start gorging myself on movies until I’m so sleep deprived I consider voting for a third party candidate, I realize that a lot of you can’t make the trip down to Austin or aren’t yet sold on the world’s most badass [...]


With the success of this weekend’s low-budget found-footage superpower movie ‘Chronicle,’ we thought it would be fun to look back in the Scene-Stealers vault to four years ago when director Matt Reeves and producer J. J. Abrams hoisted ‘Cloverfield,’ a monster movie firmly rooted in the lo-fi-meets-CGI aesthetic, on the world.


Today’s Overlooked Movie Monday looks at an underappreciated film by Tarsem Singh, the visual stylist behind ‘Immortals.’ This is the one film where the director puts all the elements together.


It’s that time of the year again! The days are getting shorter, the kids are back in school, and the sweltering heat is starting to de-swelter. Could it be? YES! Fantastic Fest 2011 kicks off in less than three weeks! From Thursday, 9/22 through Thursday, 9/29, true genre movie lovers will gather primarily at the [...]

The premise: In the future, there’s a biotech company that hires repo men to hunt down and repossess people’s organs provided to [...]


Stephanie Meyer’s teen vampire romance book Twilight makes it to the big screen this weekend starring Robert Pattinson as Edward and Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan. There’s no doubt that Twilight will make tons of cash, but will it satisfy fans an non-fans of the book alike? Eric and guest co-host Whitney Mathews (www.whitneymathews.com) review Twilight [...]


M. Night Shyamalan movies make great trailers. He’s all about the high-concept hook—an easy-to-explain premise that sucks you in right away. The thing that the movie studio is selling this time out is that “The Happening,” starring Mark Wahlberg and Zooey Deschanel, is his first rated-R effort. I have to admit, the idea perked my [...]


If Graham Chapman from Monty Python were still alive, he’d be liable to walk into any theater showing this movie and stop the projector at will because it is getting far too silly.
