With January (and its requisite duds) now over, we can finally focus on the upcoming film year. 2014 promises to be a wild one in terms of franchise construction, superhero examination, and dramatic offerings, presenting moviegoers with opportunities to reteam with Captain America, traverse Middle-earth, ride a Dinobot, soar into the cosmos with Christopher Nolan, and stomp a major city with Godzilla.

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.
Survival in space, the trouble with teens, a disastrous family gathering, Somali pirates, Robert Redford vs. the World, Midwestern sweepstakes blues, Sarah Polley's family album, horrific Danish accusations, Woody Allen rides a streetcar, and the pit wants what it wants. Here are the Best Films of 2013. Read the rest at Blu-ray.com
Chuck Logan is a seasoned author who's published nine books, with the majority of them devoted to the exploits of Phil Broker, an undercover cop from the far, snowy reaches of Minnesota. The force of justice and devoted father is about to receive his first big screen adaptation with "Homefront" (opening November 27th), a Sylvester Stallone-scripter action film starring Jason Statham as Broker. The cast also includes Winona Ryder, Kate Bosworth, and James Franco. Recently, Blu-ray.com critic Brian Orndorf had the opportunity to sit down with Logan to discuss his experience with "Homefront" and his future plans for publishing as the e-book revolution grows.

Twentysomething love without protection, SEALs in need of Strasberg, Tom Cruise vs. Bon Jovi, Billy Crystal’s bathroom routine, the hilarity of colon cancer, the lulz of internet horror, McG and the game of love, a movie with a devil of a non-ending, and a brutal pair of Perrys. These are the worst films of 2012.
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. These are the best films of 2012.
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.
