A glossy polished adaptation of the popular romantic epic about a guy, a girl and the whole darn circus. Unfortunately, a truncated script and lack of chemistry between the leads knock it off the high wire.

Mobsters Rating: Absence, apparently, really can make the heart grow fonder. It has been about 14 years since the original Scream slashed its way into the hearts of horror fans and created a doomed spiral of self-reference and pop-culture slumming. For years after, the genre was locked down in a slog ... Read More

Three is dead. I am Number 4. I'm also cliched, maudlin and moderately fun if you don't think too hard about me. And if you have never read a sci-fi novel before, I might just be breathtakingly original.
A movie about an obsessively organized efficiency expert whose life unravels in unexpected ways when fate forces him to explore the serendipitous nature of love and forgiveness is a lot to swallow in one breath. But what Chaos Theory succeeds at is manipulating this story base and makes for a compelling/interesting character piece.

Most of the marketing surrounding the new survival thriller Sanctum focuses on its producer, James Cameron, and the cutting-edge 3D cameras used to film it. There is a very good reason for this; there isn’t much else to promote. Avatar fans looking for more multi-dimensional sensory escapism will be sorely ... Read More

I probably "didn't get" the overall message, but what I saw on the whole was very boring with the interesting elements overshadowed by a completely uninteresting and lackluster main story.

Yeah, it's got boobs and gore in 3D, but little else and for something so expensive, that won't fly. At least for me.

Step Up 3D is definitely the worst Step Up film in the franchise (yes, I've seen them all), but it's still cheesy fun and its gimmicky use of 3D is funny in a macabre way. However, if you're going to see this, do you really care about how good the movie is, or do you just wanna see people do crazy dance moves you could never even attempt? Be real with yourself.

For Jon's new semi-regular feature, he's taking a trip through the magical world of Hulu to bring you defunct TV shows that are available for your free viewing pleasure, be it good or bad. On the first edition, he talks about his favorite cop drama show of all-time: the 2003-2004 reboot of Dragnet, starring Ed O' Neill. Don't worry everyone: Movie Mobsters isn't going to become Television Mobsters anytime soon.
