THE FINAL DESTINATION trailer looks like scary NASCAR fun in 3-D! by DARK SIDE

THE FINAL DESTINATION trailer looks like scary NASCAR fun in 3-D! by DARK SIDE

Posted on June 6th, 2009

I’m a big fan of the original “Final Destination.” I thought it nailed its creepy concept with originality and zeal. The two sequels didn’t impress me, but were passable time wasters. Months ago, when I heard news of “Final Destination IV” going into production, I yawned and ignored it. Today I noticed a large percentage of the online community was mentioning a lot of positive things about a trailer for the new “Final Destination” film. Hype words were thrown around like “Awesome!” and “A must-see!”…

“Paul Blart: Mall Cop.” Did you see it? I didn’t. Looked insulting, idiotic and – dare I say – stupid. Kevin James doesn’t amuse me in the slightest and I couldn’t imagine anyone liking it… but by May of 2009 it had made $145 million domestically. It scored a mere 33% on RottenTomatoes.com (meaning only 33% of movie critics gave it a positive review)! How could this happen? Let me explain…

UP (2009) ***** quick movie review by COOP

Posted on June 3rd, 2009

I’m not going to spend a lot of time on this one, but know that it’s not just for kids. “Up” strikes exactly the right balance between kid-friendly and adult-friendly. It manages to entertain on all levels and it does it all in 3-D. I was amazed how it could wrench at your heart one minute, then get you laughing again in the next. I might even go so far as to say…

DRAG ME TO HELL (2009) *** movie review by DARK SIDE

Posted on June 1st, 2009

Here lies Sam Raimi’s worst horror movie ever. Now that I’ve said that, would you believe I recommend this one to both horror fans and mainstream audiences alike? The master of kinetic filmmaking raised the bar pretty high with his “Evil Dead” trilogy (which includes “Army of Darkness” in case you didn’t know). While I’m pleased as Halloween-party punch Raimi has decided to go back to horror after a long stint with the “Spider-Man” movies, I would’ve preferred…
