The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)

20th Century Fox released The Day the Earth Stood Still on September 18, 1951, and while the film might look dated to modern eyes, it has all the wonderful elements one would come to expect from the Golden Age of Science Fiction.

A Trip to the Moon (1902)

A Trip to the Moon (1902)

Arguably the best of Georges Méliès films, 1902’s A Trip to the Moon embodies what people love about his movies. They are imaginative and humorous with a narrative resembling something more theatrical than what other film makers of the day.

Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

Warner Releases New Edge Of Tomorrow Trailer

Edge of Tomorrow doesn’t aspire to be anything more than a summer popcorn thriller. And it does that very well. Since the plot outline is available in any number of places, I’ll get right down to a spoiler-free review of the movie. This movie embraces its role as a summer blockbuster.

We’re The Millers (2013)

We're The Millers (2013)

When I fork over $10 to see a feature film that begins by showing YouTube videos that I saw a year ago for free, I’m not going to be in a jolly mood. When the movie is supposed to be a comedy, you’re going to have to work extra hard to get my amusement back, and We’re the Millers is never able to do that.

Monsters University (2013)

Monsters University Movie Still Courtesy Walt Disney and Pixar

When I heard that Monsters University was in the works, I was less than enthused. I love most of Pixar’s movies, but 2001’s Monsters, Inc is not one of them. Throw in the fact that I feel that nearly all sequels (in this case prequel) fall flat when compared to the original, and you have a film that I really didn’t want to see.

Man of Steel (2013)

Man of Steel (2013)

Without a doubt, Man of Steel is the finest Superman movie ever made. I know, in writing this, that I sound like the Sony guy who turned out to be a company exec. I promise I have no stock in any studio or production company associated with this fine flick. It's just that when somebody makes a movie this good, it's a sin not to give credit where credit is due.

This Is the End (2013)

This Is The End (2013)

Fans of 2008’s stoner/comedy Pineapple Express have been waiting 5 years for Seth Rogen and James Franco to toke up on the big screen with its sequel. Instead of an uninspired rehash of the same thing that ruins the original movie ala The Hangover, 2013’s This Is the End proves that you can give the fans what they want, and still have an imaginative and entertaining movie…something that the Wolfpack never seemed to care about.
