Every summer the box-office landscape has that one movie that's on an entirely different level than anything else out there. That one movie people of all age groups will go to see and enjoy regardless of demographics. That one movie that other studios know will be such a unbeatable juggernaut that the box-office that they don't dare release their own films till weeks later.
Earth's mightiest heroes defeated their box office adversaries this summer and now Marvel & Disney are back crush their home video completion with The Avengers on Blu-Ray. And much like the Avengers themselves there are many different options to choose from when deciding which version to add to your personal movie library.
The first weekend of May typically marks the opening of the summer movie season. Normally, this time of year is when the first of many films begin their theatrical release in hopes of reaching that blockbuster status. Not this year.
It's official: February 29 (aka Leap Day) has been claimed Geek Day.
On this day, October 11, 2011 Christmas came early for every fanboy, geek, and true believer of all ages.
The trailer may of only lasted just over a minute but those short 66 seconds that was enough to satisfy (and tease) decades worth of Marvel fans. Well, at least this Marvel fan anyway.
Despite a Best Director Oscar and numerous accolades, the last decade hasn't been Martin Scorsese's best: his films either lumbering behemoths or modest retreads. Gangs of New York was uneven, The Aviator overstuffed (in the way biopics habitually are), and The Departed a throwback to the mob genre which made him a household name.
Like in life itself, things in Hollywood go in cycles, with similarly themed movies often hitting the multiplex around the same time. Usually it happens with summer blockbusters like the summer of '98 when Armageddon and Deep Impact both shared the big screen in hopes of becoming the victor in the war of the "giant boulder hitting earth pictures".
It's been several years since David Fincher grossed and creeped us out with Se7en and exemplified unreliable narration and left us asking "did you see that frame" in regards to Fight Club.
David Fincher is one of those directors that, if you are a movie fan, you always want to see his latest project.
