I couldn’t stop aww-ing over Wall-E, wanting to just give him a big hug. The film opens June 27 …

Box Office Breakdown: Rambo Outgunned by Spartans

Although Sylvester Stallone was hoping to end the Rambo series on an up note, it appears the actor/writer/director will just have to settle for second place.  Many had expected the fourth installment would come away with the weekend’s spoils, unfortunately the aging action hero was overpowered by a group of toga-clad warriors. It should be said though that Meet the Spartans had an extremely narrow victory.  The spoof of 2007’s 300 edged out the action …

This Week on HD DVD and Blu-ray: January 08, 2008

This week marks the release of the first batch of high-definition DVDs since on-the-fence Warner landed decidedly on the Blu side; I must admit, as an HD DVD man, the day feels a bit colder than normal. But no matter—the format war is far from over. On a lighter note, both formats have some exciting titles to speak of, including the Blu-ray release of one of my favorite movies from 2007, Sunshine; Roman Polanski’s Oscar-winning film, …

And what better way to view these visual—if not always plausible—delights than in high definition?The coveted two-disc special edition of Transformers releases this week on HD DVD, much to the chagrin of …

Affleck’s Directorial Debut Overshadowed by Missing Girl

Despite some great early buzz, Ben Affleck’s directorial debut will be taking a backseat to international news. The actor, who’s been fairly quiet since his Golden Globe-nominated turn in Hollywoodland (and a small role in Smokin’ Aces), has been focusing his energy lately behind the camera.  His upcoming project, Gone Baby Gone, centers around the disappearance of a 4-year-old girl.  The story, based on a novel by Dennis Lehane (Mystic River), features Ben’s brother (Casey) and …

Apocalypto DVD Review

Mel Gibson’s epic film about the decline of the Mayan civilization in 16th century South America was released on DVD last week.  The story begins when a small but productive Mayan village comes under attack by a local tribe desperate to save itself from ecological demise by appeasing the gods with human sacrifice.  While the movie displays the unique architecture, weaponry, and overall culture of these indigenous peoples, it also narrows to focus on the remarkable …
