MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Unidentified’

Film: Unidentified
Starring: Eric Artell, Parry Shen
Directed by: Jason Richard Miller

There have been at least two films in the last year that have attempted to leverage the insanity of a wild night in Las Vegas with the affordability of shooting ‘found footage’ style. The first attempt, Best Night Ever, tried to take the same route of The Hangover, only with girls, and came out a disaster. The latest, which follows four young men and involves the possibility of extraterrestrials, is unfortunately not any better.…

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Skinwalker Ranch’

Film: Skinwalker Ranch
Starring: Adam Ohler
Directed By: Devin McGinn

There is no denying the permanence of ‘found footage’ in the world of film at this point. From humble beginnings with college kids lost in the woods, the genre has undergone some major changes over the years, and along the way a variety of new angles have been brought to the table. It started with ghosts and things that go bump in the night, then evolved to exorcisms, bigfoot, dinosaurs, school shootings, superpowers, and of course – aliens. This week another entry attempts to scale the seemingly impossible mountain of …

Scarlett Johansson Is An Alien Sex Goddess In First ‘Under The Skin’ Trailer

Scarlett Johansson has played many roles in her career, but this Fall audiences will see her approaching her highly-discussed sexuality with a confidence never-before-seen from the young starlet. First fans will get to see her controlling, sassy attitude in Don Jon opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt, then things get really weird when she steps into the role of an alien on earth for today’s featured film, Under The Skin.

A product of writers Jonathan Glazer and Walter Campbell, Under The Skin is the story of an alien on Earth in the form of a gorgeous woman (Johansson). She scours remote highways …

MOVIE REVIEW: The Host

Film: The Host
Director: Andrew Niccols
Starring: Saoirse Ronan, Diane Kruger, William Hurt

I want you to do a thought experiment. I want you to imagine The Host without any connection to Stephenie Meyer. Pretend she had nothing to do with it, because without that connection the movie actually sounds pretty great.

The Host is a science fiction movie about a parasitic alien invasion written and directed by Andrew Niccols, the man behind Gattaca, Lord Of War, and The Truman Show. Its cast includes Saoirse Ronan (who you may know from The Lovely Bones or Hanna)William …

MOVIE REVIEW: Dark Skies

Movie: Dark Skies
Director: Scott Stewart
Studio: Entertainment One, Blumhouse Productions

It seems like every other week there is a new haunted house or demon possession movie. This style of horror has overtaken Hollywood due to its cost effectiveness. Those movies are cheap and no matter how bad they are they always seem to make money. What if this time it is not a ghost or demon or whatever other supernatural thing messing with a family in the suburbs, but aliens? If that idea sounds entertaining to you then you are in for a treat because Dark Skies is that …

Prometheus Trailer Analysis

The full featured trailer for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus has finally arrived. It’s actually pretty revealing if you watch it closely. The ending bit has a ton of flashing video, so I’ve broken the video down to show you some of the key shots. (Hopefully they load for you while you watch the video.)

MOVIE TRAILER: Battleship

Months after we first got a look at next year’s contender for worst idea put on the silver screen, a brand new trailer Battleship has surfaced online.

In our latest clip of Peter Berg’s best Michael Bay impression, a shit ton of things explode, yet nothing at all catches our interest. You see a lot of the alien ships, but still no creatures, and shots of every celebrity whose quota the producers were somehow able to meet (oh, and Rihanna). You can view this noisy, CGI-filled trainwreck after the jump.

Thankfully, most the proposed board game adaptations in recent years …
