Blu Review: Dark Shadows

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is doing the smart thing and releasing Tim Burton's Dark Shadows just in time to soak up some Halloween spirit. The film performed poorly in studios but will no doubt do good business on Blu-ray and DVD since the holiday season puts people in the mood to see something spooky and kooky to celebrate. Dark Shadows is perfect for viewers who want to get the chills and some thrills but not overdose on them. A good helping of humor helps to balance things out.

Movie Review: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Ever since seeing a screening of Timur Bekmambetov's Russian masterpiece Night Watch, I've made it a habit to watch anything the producer / director puts his stamp of approval on. Most everything he's been involved in I've liked or appreciated. His movie Wanted is probably my favorite action vehicle of the last decade. It doesn't seem like anything in that genre can thrill me after witnessing all the unbelievable scenes and adrenalized energy emanated by that film. Even the movie 9, which he produced with Tim Burton, was interesting even in its imperfection.

Tim Burton, Sam Raimi, and More on Directors Shortlist for ‘Pirates...

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was, to put it mildly, a complete and utter disaster of a film that almost obliterates all good will that the franchise has ever earned.  To put it harshly, it was a very bad movie.  But can Disney atone for its bad behavior?  Will they actually try to form a cohesive film?  If this director shortlist is any indication, they're at least going to TRY.
