MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’

Film: Guardians Of The Galaxy
Directed by: James Gunn
Starring: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana,

We need to get some things out of the way before we start this review. The current cinema is completely oversaturated with superhero/comic book films. Most of them are the same; every hero is getting their own movie, all of which have relatively the same aesthetics. The worst part about this is, Marvel shows no sign of stopping, with even just recently announcing they have films planned through 2019, which is nothing short of ridiculous. These superhero and comic book adaptations have become so prevalent in …

‘Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle’ 10 Years Later: Still High After All This Time

In the summer of 2004 I was seventeen and living a life that could best be described as straight edge. It’s not that I lived in a world thriving with drugs and alcohol that I fought daily to avoid. On the contrary, I came up in a modest, middle class household in a tiny rural town with a population well below 5,000 people. I didn’t do drugs, but I also had no idea where to find them if I had any desire to try them in the first place. Everything I knew about weed and the effects it had on …

UTG INTERVIEW: Rob Reiner Talks ‘And So It Goes,’ Aging In Hollywood, And More

Rob Reiner is one of those rare living legends that almost everyone you meet loves in one way or another. You may hate some of his work, sure, but that is bound to happen when you have had a career in entertainment that spans several decades. The important thing is that you remain as consistent as possible, and for the better part of the last thirty years Rob Reiner has continually raised the bar for simple, romantic storytelling. He can take any two characters, regardless of age or personality, and make audiences not only connect with them, but relate to …

Kurt Russell Claims ‘The Hateful Eight’ Could Shoot In Early 2015

Quentin Tarantino’s highly-anticipated and sometimes cancelled Hateful Eight is currently alive and well. Production information has been kept under tight wraps, but one of the film’s long-rumored stars seems to have essentially confirmed Tarantino’s plans to bring his latest Western to life.

This week, Kurt Russell teased connection to Quentin Tarantino’s Hateful Eight while talking about future projects with Philadelphia’s Fox 59. He was doing an interview about The Battered Bastards of Baseball (out now on Netflix), when he dropped the following tidbit of previously unreleased information:

“I’ve got a Tarantino project called The Hateful Eight that looks like

Will Mark Ruffalo And Marvel Take Us To ‘Planet Hulk’?

Mark Ruffalo has been doing a ton of interviews to promote his role in the new film Begin Again. Press are typically asked to only talk about the project being promoted, but as Ruffalo is part of one of the biggest franchises in cinema history (Marvel’s cinematic universe) nearly every conversation has found at least a small amount of time to ask about the thing that has been on the minds of comic movie fans since The Avengers: When will The Hulk return, and will there be another stand-alone Hulk film?

Warning: Some small comic-based spoilers will follow

‘The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby’ Trailer: Bring On The Oscar Buzz

The first trailer for The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby has found its way online ahead of the film’s fall release.

At first sight, The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby may seem like your typical dramatic tale of romance on the rocks, but the origin of the film is actually quite peculiar. The project was originally screened at the Toronto International Film Festival last year as two separate films – Him and Her – which together told the story of one romance through the eyes of each lover. At Cannes, the project appeared again, this time with the subtitle Them, and …

‘Boardwalk Empire’ Actor Charlie Cox Cast As Marvel’s Next Daredevil

With showrunner Drew Goddard leaving Marvel’s planned Daredevil Netflix series, new showrunner Steven S. DeKnight had to hunker down and finally choose an actor for the lead role of Matt Murdoch. In an intersting choice, DeKnight has chosen Boardwalk Empire alum Charlie Cox.

Viewers will recognize Cox from the aforementioned Boardwalk Empire, but as well as Stardust, directed my Matthew Vaughn. What is most interesting about this casting announcement, first rumored by Latino Review, now confirmed by Variety, is that Cox may be as unsuperhero like as one could get, and trust me, that is a good …

Adam Sandler Admits His Films Are Thinly Veiled Excuses To Go On Paid Vacations

For the better part of the last decade film critics and movie goers alike have searched for reasons why Adam Sandler’s career has essentially tanked. Punch Drunk Love lead many to believe the actor was going to spend the 2000s expanding his brand in Hollywood, but here we are more than a decade later and the only other ‘serious’ film on the actor’s resume is Judd Apatow’s Funny People, which divided film audiences worldwide. The hard truth is that Sandler hasn’t had a hit, or at least a hit on par with his work prior to Click, in …
