Hatred Over ‘Hunger’

Amandla Stenberg as Rue in 'The Hunger Games'

I haven’t seen The Hunger Games. I haven’t read The Hunger Games. In fact, I had never heard of The Hunger Games until news about the casting started hitting the web. The concept seemed interesting enough, but wasn’t something I felt I had to see – completely unlike The Avengers, which I’m practically foaming at [...]

Disney Kills ‘The Lone Ranger’ (at least for now…)

Lone Ranger Logo

First off, I didn’t even know Disney had a Lone Ranger movie in the pipeline… That news was brought to my attention today at the same time that I leaned the nascent project was being shut down by the Mouse House over budgetary concerns.

The Reel Deel Review – THOR

The Reel Deel Review – THE INCREDIBLE HULK

First of all, to anyone who cares, the reason I didn’t do a review of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is simple. I just found the movie kinda “meh.” Any movie claiming to be and Indy flick without copious use of the hero’s trademark whip just isn’t worth my time. So [...]
