The Worst Films of 2013

WORST OF cover

The end of John McClane, matrimonial misery, parodies galore, Lindsay Lohan’s unfortunately placed iPad, west coast sexual gamesmanship, the first of two terrible White House-under-fire pictures, Mischa Barton’s haunted apartment, the futility of fast cars, and funny people trapped in an unfunny movie. These are the Worst Films of 2013.

The Best Films of 2012

BEST OF 1

An Iranian uproar cooled by Hollywood fakery, a failed boy scout on the hunt for true love, fast food friction, the true price of greed, the slaughter of reality show stars, the quest to bring Osama bin Laden to justice, positive thinking put to the ultimate test, shaken and stirred, a mechanical best friend, and a visit to a nightmare factory via the woods.

Interview - Drew Goddard

DREW GODDARD 2

Opening on April 13th is a film that’s almost impossible to describe. “The Cabin in the Woods” marks the directorial debut for screenwriter Drew Goddard, who achieved early industry success with his work on the monster movie “Cloverfield” and the hit television shows, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Lost.” Reteaming with Joss Whedon, Goddard looks to shake up the stale conventions of the horror genre with “Cabin,” a marvelous joyride of scares and giggles that’s a pure valentine to the moviegoing experience. Recently, I had an opportunity to sit down and discuss this wonderfully peculiar picture with Goddard, a man palpably excited to see his oft-delayed feature finally released.

Review - Star Tours: The Adventures Continue at Disney's Hollywood Studios

P1190461

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away there was a motion simulator attraction titled “Star Tours,” born from the imagination of George Lucas and his iconic “Star Wars” franchise. For over two decades, the entertainment experience remained unchanged at Disneyland and Walt Disney World, leaving fans to wonder if the semi-dated attraction would ever see a significant overhaul. After all, being an unabashed tinkerer, why would Lucas leave one of the more vividly imagined forays into his ATM-like empire unmolested? Would “Star Tours” remain the same forever? I mean, honestly, how many times can a person do the trench run before a case of the sleeps sets in?
