In Memoriam: Richard Matheson by Rob Vaux, Writer
(June 26, 2013)
The late Richard Matheson isn’t a household word like many of the writers and filmmakers he inspired. Science fiction fans always perk up at his name, but run-of-the-mill folks don’t recognize him like they do, say, Stephen King, Steven Spielberg, Rod

Shock-O-Rama: What Makes a Zombie a Zombie? by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(June 26, 2013)
There are a number of massive flame wars available to nerds looking to prove their mettle and enlist in. The classics are wistfully recalled as if foolish combatants took part in some heroic last stand. Trek vs Wars, Kirk vs Picard, Marvel vs DC, Joel vs M

Top 10 Wrongs of Roland Emmerich by Michael Henley, Contributing Writer
(June 26, 2013)
There’s something magical about walking out of the hot summer air and into a cool theater to see a big, dumb special effects spectacle, provided that it isn’t too big or too dumb. While for many Michael Bay rules the roost of disposable summertime ente

WWZ Sequel in the Works by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(June 25, 2013)
About half way through World War Z I remembered that someone, somewhere, said this film was starting point for a whole new franchise. At that point I knew, that by the end, the world was not going to go back to the way it was.

(June 25, 2013)
Here is the international trailer for Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters. I have never seen the first one, but the special effects look only a tad better than that of Twilight. Numerous Maniacs have said that the original was fun and light hearted. Are you rea

DVD Shopping Bag: Enter the Dragon 40th Anniversary Ultimate Collectors Edition by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(June 25, 2013)
Enter the Dragon first came into my life because of a little film called Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story. I was looking forward to this biopic and, luckily for me, I worked at a video store that had a copy of Enter the Dragon. I was less than impressed. The co

The Summer of '83: Yellowbeard by Rob Vaux, Writer
(June 25, 2013)
The saddest form of cinematic endeavor in the world is a comedy that no one laughs at. Doubly so when the people involved rank among the funniest in the world. Say hello to Yellowbeard, starring three member of Monty Python and featuring the likes of Cheec

Mania Box Office Report: Monsters VS. Zombies by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(June 24, 2013)
Monsters VS. Zombies is what it came down to in the fourth week in June. Would it be the Pixar’s Prequel or Pitt’s Plagued film? It appears the kiddies won out with a crushing 22 million deficit. Does that make World War Z the loser? No, it fact The Ma

Lone Ranger Commercial Spots by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(June 24, 2013)
Disney has begun the big push now for The Lone Ranger. It still looks like fun. Anything has to better than the 1981 version (Legend of The Lone Ranger) which featured Christopher Lloyd has the heavy. Tread there if you dare.

10 Lamest Die Hard Ripoffs by Michael Henley, Contributing Writer
(June 24, 2013)
When it comes to films that help set the standard for action, you don’t get more influential than Die Hard. The original film, now an action classic, was met with derisive snickers when it first came on the scene, but in actuality it was a foolproof reci

Man of Steel Deluxe Edition Soundtrack Review by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(June 24, 2013)
The hardest part of reviewing a soundtrack with Superman in the film is getting over years of nostalgia and John Williams’ perfect theme. It’s a theme that is still used to this day to invoke a triumphant spirit. John Williams made us all believe a man

The Summer of '83: Twilight Zone the Movie by Rob Vaux, Writer
(June 24, 2013)
Twilight Zone: The Movie is the definitive tale of two films. Or rather, the tale of four films, each of them an homage to the classic Rod Serling TV series. Four different directors, four different scripts, four different casts. And like a lot of remakes,

The Rock for Terminator 5? by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(June 23, 2013)
Does Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson have the golden touch? Hollywood certainly believes so. The Rock has made a career out of stepping into established properties and giving them a boost. Everything from the The Mummy Returns to G.I. Joe Retaliation. Now it

The news on Amazing Spider-Man 2 just keeps coming and coming. Late last week we learned that Shailene Woodley’s part of Mary Jane was cut from the film. Then we learned Woodley would not return as Mary Jane for the subsequent sequels (in 2016 and 2018).

Jack The Giant Slayer Blu-Ray Review by Tim Janson, Columnist and Critic
(June 23, 2013)
Like Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, Jack the Giant Slayer is another film based on a classic fairy tale but this one is actually fun. It uses a tried and true formula found in literally thousands of fantasy novels about a hero who comes from humble mea

Mania Review: World War Z by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(June 21, 2013)
Considering the incredibly difficult production, I’m relieved to see that World War Z is much better than we expected. It doesn’t break the mold, and its connection to Max Brooks’ source novel is tenuous at best. But it’s still smarter than the ave
