Kick-Ass 2: Chan’s Movie Review

Let me preface this by saying the last time I saw Kick-Ass was when it was in theaters… which was in April 2010.  I wasn’t 100% on all the details (read: maybe ~5%) but I did remember I enjoyed it greatly, so I wanted to see Kick-Ass 2. The way this movie starts off makes […]

MTV Movie Awards = Hunger Games: Catching Fire Trailer

Hello lovelies!  While I don’t have cable and even when I did rarely watched MTV, one good point of tonight’s MTV Movie Awards was The Hunger Games: Catching Fire trailer!  It’s definitely phenomenal, but I was a little disappointed by the scenes they showed. Hopefully we’ll see more since we have until November 22nd until […]

Ruby Sparks: Chan’s Movie Review

Never hearing of this movie before, I received an email that was an invite to a screening down the street from me.  I read the synopsis – “An author writes a girl in a story and she becomes real” – and decided from that alone that it was cute.  Being on a Tuesday night and […]

The Amazing Spider-Man: Chan’s Movie Review

I was lucky enough to snag private screening tickets to this movie tonight, and I am glad for every single minute I waited in line to see it. The Amazing Spider-Man is an attempt to rejuvenate the franchise while also using a different universe in order to capture an alternate view of Spider-Man.  The main […]

The Mortal Instruments – Coming Soon to a Theater Near You?

From http://www.nextmovie.com/blog/mortal-instruments-to-start-filming/ “Pre-production on “The Mortal Instruments” has been quite a roller coaster ride, but source material author Cassandra Clare says things are getting back on a steady track. Today, she took to Tumblr to share the news that shooting for “The Mortal Instruments” will begin, finally, on August 15. This tidbit comes on the heels of a shake-up that happened last month when Sony […]

John Carter: Chan’s Review

The Disney-produced John Carter, based on “A Princess of Mars” by Edgar Rice Burroughs written in 1917 (yowza), did not fare as well as expected in the box office this weekend ($30.6 mil domestically on a $250 mil budget) and seems to be getting mediocre (at best) reviews from a lot of other places, but […]

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance … why did I fall for it?

The first Ghost Rider was subpar at best, but I figured why not give it a second chance, after all it’s by different writers and different directors. This was a mistake. There was no continuity; it felt like fast forward, rewinding, then stopping randomly and watching a scene, rinse and repeat.  The monologs to explain […]

Already Excited for May! – The Avengers Movie

Marvel movies are abundant these days and I couldn’t be happier about it: some come out bad, some good, some AWESOME, and some you pretend you never heard about (cough cough… Wolverine: Origins).  Personally I am biting my nails over the upcoming Avengers.  Robert Downey Jr. was badass as Iron Man, and Chris Evans was […]
