Steven Spielberg is one of the best directors of all time, and as he’s partnered with undoubtedly the greatest film composer ever, John Williams, many of his films are some of the most memorable of all time. With tomorrow’s theatrical release of Jurassic Park into theaters, we’re looking back at their best collaborations. Continue Reading →

Into Darkness is set to prove that at warp speed.
Paramount Pictures requested director J.J. Abrams to make the film in 3D. However, Abrams wanted to shoot the movie two dimensionally on film using IMAX cameras. The two compromised, and as a result this film marks the first time in cinema history that a movie was filmed in the IMAX format and then converted into 3D in post production.–IMDB
This blogger feels that IMAX is over-rated. I would like to see the production with the special effects of 3-D rather than a convert to 3D. Sadly my name is not J.J. Abrams.
Don’t get me wrong, IMAX does offer an excellent experience, but there are many theater locations that offer a large picture format that compares to, if not exceeds IMAX.

This has nothing to do with movies but as a tribute to our site name it is certainly worth a watch. It is pretty funny to see these nuts keep burning themselves, and watch to the end to see the explosion at 10,000 frames per second. Very cool!

The premise of the holiday classic ‘Home Alone’ — that a family would forget their eight-year old as they left on a trip to France — is fairly absurd.
Although when you consider how many kids the McCallister clan had to keep track of, maybe it’s not so absurd. We’ve kept track of all of the actors who played the McCallister youngsters, and you can learn about what they are up to. Enjoy! Your FIF, The Kernel Continue Reading →

Looking forward to a given year’s movies is sometimes a sucker’s game. You spend months and months hyping yourself up for John Carter only to see it disappoint, and then have no idea what Beasts of the Southern Wild is until it suddenly becomes your favorite movie of the year. The fun of movie going is often in the surprises, in thinking you’ve got the lay of the land only to walk into a theater completely thrown off. Enjoy! Your FIF, The Kernel Continue Reading →
As a service to our readers who I kinda feel need some legal advice I am warning you all about many new, unusual state laws will take effect when the ball drops at midnight and millions of Americans ring in the New Year, including one that will limit the number of cats in a household.

This was a pretty good year to be a fan of genre movies. More and more low-budget movies had the courage to tackle science fiction and fantasy themes, and meanwhile Hollywood seemed to step up its game a little. But at the same time, there were still tons of boring sequels and prequels, and mountains of crap.
Here are some picks for the year’s best and worst science fiction and fantasy movies. Let the debate begin! Your FIF, The Kernel Continue Reading →

You could probably rattle off the year’s biggest movies without much effort, just based on what you saw people talking about the most all year. The Dark Knight Rises, The Avengers, Ted and all the others are the hits that are so huge everybody knows about them and has probably seen them. Continue Reading →
Hurtling into award season it’s easy to get lost in all the incredible cinema made by charismatic and compelling performers and insightful and provocative filmmakers. But for all the art it may produce, moviemaking is always essentially a business. Continue Reading →

Humor is subjective, right? Some people think vintage “Three Stooges” movies are the height of hilarity. Some people think the recent “Three Stooges” movie is the funniest thing ever. (In theory — we don’t know any personally, but we’re sure they exist.) But even subjectivity has its limits. Some comedies are so tragically unfunny that most, if not all, of us can agree on their awfulness. We asked Jenni Miller, Max Evry and Elisabeth Rappe — some of the funniest people we know — to rate the 50 worst offenders in the Bad Comedy Hall of Fame. Continue Reading →
Much like the majority of the population over the age of 14, Robert Pattinson has always been very vocal about how he thinks the ‘Twilight Saga‘ is an awful, awful mess of a series, even moreso as the movies wound down to their (thankfully) inevitable conclusion. Continue Reading →
Zombies don’t exactly lend themselves to teen romance stories as well as vampires do, what with their flesh being all gross and decaying, like a jack o’ lantern in November, rather than pale and smooth, like a porcelain doll. But that’s not going to stop the creators of Warm Bodies from capitalizing on the current zombie crazy by making a teen zombie romance anyway.
Star Wars fans know this clip well but it makes me laugh out loud every time I see it. George Lucas famously left in this gaffe of a Stormtrooper hitting his head on the Death Star and while you don’t notice it the first see the movie, once you do notice it, it’s all you ever see. It’s a hilarious moment. Your FIF, The Kernel
This whole week we’ve been gearing up for war. Now we finally have the World War Z trailer. And, true to the footage we saw earlier, it looks huge. Definitely a very, very, very loose adaptation of the book. Back when running zombies were introduced to the horror vernacular I had no idea they’d eventually run so fast in film they’d look like cascading flood water. It almost feels like a Roland Emmerich touch. As for the rest of the trailer – it looks good, but nothing that I haven’t seen before in one way or another.

Michael Bay makes some of the biggest, brashest movies in the world, from the Transformers trilogy to Armageddon, The Rock, and Bad Boys. The man is pretty much a blockbuster machine.
Dave Bautista is the Brass Body in the new film Man With The Iron Fists. He is better known as the wrestler Batista and this trailer is a small tease of the awesomeness of this character. Your FIF, The Kernel
We got a shaky, blurry look at Fede Alvarez’s hotly anticipated Evil Dead remake earlier this month. While it was blurry and shaky due to its bootleg nature it revealed one thing – that the film will be supremely gory!!! And now, we have a clear look at the film. Bonus? Still super gory! And it uses the low-roving shots that we all know and love. Despite the more polished look, it feels very much like an Evil Dead movie to me. Specifically the first one, where it was five people and it wasn’t just about Ash! Continue Reading →
The Year of Channing Tatum, which is what I’m pretty sure we’ll call 2012 in the history books when all things are said and done, looks to continue handily next year, both thanks to the delay of G.I. Joe: Retaliation (which was added to include more of Tatum, believe it or not) and White House Down, in which he plays a Secret Service agent valiantly defending the center of federal government during a terrorist attack. We’ve gotten a few glimpses behind the scenes of the film, but now the first official images have hit the web.
Ever since the news broke that Disney had bought Lucasfilm, the internet has been exploding with excitement from fans. Rumors about the plot, casting, and who will direct the films, especially the first one, Star Wars: Episode 7, have been circulating at an alarming rate.
Stepping into the huge gap that George Lucas (and Irvin Kershner and Richard Marquand) left is going to be a daunting task for whoever is brought on as director for the next trilogy. This decision is one of the biggest that Disney is faced with and it should also be one of the first that they tackle.
So in order to ease their decision making process a bit, we’ve come up with a list of the top directors to take on Star Wars: Episode 7. Continue Reading →

Marvel Studios has initiated an innovative strategy to debut a new sneak peek from the highly-anticipated Iron Man 3. Fans who visit the superhero sequel’s Facebook page can “Like” the site to charge up Tony Stark’s Arc reactor. Once the reactor reaches 100%, the video will debut.
Talking to Entertainment Weekly, Hamill admitted that Lucas told him and Carrie Fisher back in August that he was planning to make three more Star Wars movies, and that Kathleen Kennedy would be in charge of them.
