For Luc Besson's latest foray into the sci-fi stratosphere, he has decided to bring the popular graphic novel 'Valérian and Laureline' to life in a screen adaptation; Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne have been cast in the lead roles of Valerian and Laureline respectively.

A remix of The Beatles' much loved track 'Because' from their 1969 classic album 'Abbey Road' can be heard sound tracking the trailer.

Set thousands of years in the future, Valérian and Laureline journey far and wide around the universe at the behest of the government in charge of the human territories. Their mission is to keep the peace and make sure order is continually maintained. Valérian can't help but be enamoured by  Laureline obvious beauty and strong mentality but she is hesitant toward his advances and tries to keep their relationship as professional as can be.

Hobo With A Shotgun Review


Good
With its straightforward premise and a steady stream of random brutality, this lurid, corny movie, based on a trailer from 2007's Grindhouse, is almost mind-bogglingly grisly. But the anti-violence message gives it an amusingly ironic twist.

A homeless man (Hauer), looking for cash to buy a lawnmower to earn a living, finally gets fed up with the violence doled out by ruthless local gangster Drake (Downey), who delights in gruesomely killing anyone who crosses him, including his brother (Wells). Drake's also responsible for the arcade that's turning teens into game addicts with loan-shark debts and a desire for blood.

After running afoul of the crooked police chief (Akerman), the hobo is helped by kindly hooker Abby (Dunsworth). Then he gets a shotgun and sets out to clean up the streets.

Moving McAllister Review


OK
Has there ever been a road trip in the history of movies that didn't culminate in some form of crazy hijinks, becoming completely derailed before ending with at least one pair of people falling in love?

You'd have to be awfully new to moviegoing to be surprised by any of the plot points in Moving McAllister, a pleasant, though completely by-the-numbers, rom-trip (to coin a phrase). Rick (Ben Gourley) is about to take the Bar exam, but he's so eager to please his new boss (Rutger Hauer) that he accepts an assignment to drive from Miami to L.A. with the boss's niece Michelle (Mila Kunis), who's moving to Hollywood to pursue her dreams of becoming an actress. Naturally, they'll be driving a rundown moving truck and carting Michelle's pet pig, too. Because that's where the cuteness is.

Dracula Iii: Legacy Review


Bad
I have a British friend whose favorite curse is "Bloody hell!!" It strikes me that there's no better way to describe Dracula III: Legacy. Bloody hell pretty much sums it up.

The latest installment in this "Wes Craven Presents..." series of vampire tales, Dracula III continues the saga of the mysterious, once-bitten Father Vincent Uffizi (Jason Scott Lee) and his wise-cracking sidekick Luke (Jason London), as they head deep into the Romanian forest to kill Dracula once and for all, and to rescue Joe's girlfriend Elizabeth (Law and Order SVU's Diane Neal), who turned into a bloodsucker in a sexy red dress in the last movie.

Scorcher Review


Weak
Ripped from today's theater screens comes the latest direct-to-DVD knockoff, Scorcher, a tepid reworking of The Core.

Say what you will about using lame source material, Scorcher is laughably bad in its own right. As with Core, our meddling has caused some kind of tectonic trouble, and if the gap between two plates opens wider than 44 centimeters (yeah, whatever), then we will literally have "hell on earth" as earthquakes and volcanoes sprout up all over the planet. Uh huh. And so our hero geologists (including John Rhys-Davies, whoa nelly!), under the direction of President Rutger Hauer(!!!), are tasked with finding a solution. Naturally, that involves setting off a nuclear bomb somewhere. In the case of Scorcher, it means detonating the nuke in central Los Angeles. Sounds like an improvement to me, but whatever, after quietly evacuating the tens of millions of people who live there, a wrench involving our military co-hero (Mark Dacascos) and a kidnapped daughter gets thrown at us, not to mention crossed signals between the military dudes tasked with getting the nukes set just so.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer Review


Good
I'll admit to it - I watch the series. Occasionally, I'm tuned to Pittsburgh's WB 31 and it just happens to be Tuesdays and I decide: OK, tonight I'm going to watch cheap horror and dammit, I'm going to do my best to enjoy it! Why Buffy the Vampire Slayer is my drug of choice I don't know. I've only been watching it for a few weeks and teen angst films and TV shows were never perennial favorites, but I'd like to think I see something in the show that most people don't. What is it? I would have to say that, like The X-Files, Millennium, ER, and Ally McBeal, four other shows that I watch about every week, Buffy the Vampire Slayer has a sick sense of humor.

I've always been a fan of dark comedies, as anyone reading my reviews for a long time will know, and I've always found that, if a dark comedy doesn't try to have any point beyond humor, it's much more enjoyable. "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", in catering to the acne center of the nation (both figuratively and literally), ends up putting all of this stupid crap of love and relationships and "well-built" characters which are actually cardboard cutouts. It would be much stronger without all this teen angst crap.

The 10th Kingdom Review


Very Good
Want to visit this mysterious 10th Kingdom? You're soaking in it.

A seven-hour epic miniseries now released on DVD (and that's with the commercials cut out), The 10th Kingdom is a hit-and-miss affair. Through a pure contrivance, we find our heroes, the lovely Kimberly Williams and John Larroquette, playing her father, whisked into "the nine kingdoms," an amalgam of fairy tales all rolled up into one crazy place. They are simply trying to escape back to New York -- but if they save the kingdom along the way, all the better.

Batman Begins Review


Very Good
1997: Batman is last seen in the guise of George Clooney, chasing down an all-blue Arnold Schwarzenegger, with two gutter punks (Robin and Batgirl) on his tail, and shepherded by the one director that all film critics love to hate: Joel Schumacher.

The franchise was left for dead, revived only by speculation of an absurd Batman vs. Superman movie in 2002. Most moviegoers seem to have bid good riddance to the series, which in its later years was notable only for generating more discussion about the nipples on the batsuit than anything else.
