The Summer of '83: Trading Places by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(June 11, 2013)
Rarely has a comedy fit its era as aptly and perfectly as Trading Places. A comedic triumph for all involved – supporting figures as well as stars – it couldn’t possibly be a product of anything but Reagan’s America. It stands as an ode to capitali

(June 10, 2013)
If I were to bet on what new film arriving this week would have won the box office, it would not have been The Purge. With an opening weekend of 36 million plus, the thriller earned back its budget and then some.

The Summer of '83: Octopussy by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(June 10, 2013)
Bond fans have always looked askance at Roger Moore’s reign in the role – still the longest with seven films – which always struck me as a little cold-hearted. Yes, Connery remains the definitive Bond, and we’ve thrilled to Daniel Craig’s hard-as

A Timeline History of Superman: Part 1 by Tim Janson, Columnist and Critic
(June 10, 2013)
Contrary to what a lot of people may think, Superman was not the first superhero. Costumed heroes date back to such characters as The Scarlet Pimpernel and Zorro in the early 1900s; Buck Rogers in the 1920s; pulp heroes like The Shadow, Doc Savage, and Th

Hobbit 2 Teaser Poster by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(June 09, 2013)
Peter Jackson and Weta have released the first teaser poster for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug via Facebook. What do you think Maniacs? I personally like the poster. It reminds of the early teaser posters for The Fellowship of the Ring. Besides getti

Mortal Instruments: Official Trailer by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(June 07, 2013)
Here is the trailer and plot for Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. When I watch this trailer I see nothing more than the next wanna be Twilight. Which is all Beautiful Creatures tried to be. Everything just falls too perfectly into place here.

Mania Review: The Purge by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(June 07, 2013)
Plausibility informs any piece of good science fiction, which technically includes The Purge. Do we believe that this could happen, and – more importantly – that the characters we see would react the way they do? If you’ve got that, then chances are

Mania Review: Much Ado about Nothing by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(June 07, 2013)
Following my screening of Joss Whedon’s Much Ado about Nothing, one of my fellow critics used the unkind term “community college production.” Another one said “that’s kind of the point,” and it is. Shakespeare belongs to everyone, not just the

As you cram half a dozen of your friends into the trunk and roll up to the ticket booth with deception in your heart, the hope and promise of a mischievous evening at the drive-in dawns even as the sun sets. Giant monster movies and teen sex comedies were

(June 05, 2013)
Here is the second official Man of Steel clip. It first surfaced when Amy Adams (Lois Lane) appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel Show. Nothing we haven’t seen before Maniacs. It is interesting how Cavill is controlling his voice. He manages a smile and a calm vo

(June 05, 2013)
Entertainment Weekly released a first look photo of Evangeline Lilly’s character Tauriel from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. I find it it interesting that Entertainment Weekly calls this a “first look” photo. It may be one for the masses, but E

The Summer of '83: The Man with Two Brains by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(June 05, 2013)
Steve Martin made his share of bad movies, but sometimes he could pull one out through sheer force of comedic will. Such was The Man with Two Brains, a joint effort with the great Carl Reiner that proves more silly than funny. Somehow, some way its star ma

(June 04, 2013)
Here is the first clip to emerge from Zach Snyder’s Man of Steel. No spoilers here, just a little back and fourth between Lois Lane (Any Adams) and Perry White (Laurence Fishburne). Was it just me or did this clip look like it was bootlegged? MovieclipsC
