How to Train Your Dragon 2 review

How to Train Your Dragon 2 review

Three or four story ideas collide like cars at a busy intersection, refusing to give the right of way, so that no one ends up going anywhere fast.
Wow, playing in theatres right now is the best film ever from DreamWorks Animation! No, not HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2. I mean the trailer for THE [...]

How to Train Your Dragon 2 - Radio Film Review

How to Train Your Dragon 2 – Radio Film Review

I’m at the point where I can pretty much take or leave 3D. As a techie, I want to embrace any technology that’ll expand the cinemagoing experience, but even I have to concede that most of the time 3D is employed as little more than an add-on, just a way to charge extra for stuff [...]

Dario Argento's Dracula - review

Dario Argento’s Dracula – review

Would be more accurately titled “Dario Argento’s Whatever Popped into My Head.”
DARIO ARGENTO’S DRACULA (as the title appears on screen) is nowhere near as laughably ridiculous as his previous foray into costume bedecked Gothic Horror, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (1998), but that is still a long way from good. Fans who take a look [...]

I, Frankenstein - review

I, Frankenstein – review

Like watching someone else play a bad videogame.
Have you heard about this new videogame called I, FRANKENSTEIN? If not, don’t blame yourself; the commercials and posters probably left you thinking that I, FRANKENSTEIN is a feature film. They even hired a few movie actors to make it seem more like a – well, like a [...]

Monsters University review

Monsters University review

No match for Pixar’s best work, but a step in the right direction after some recent disappointments
Mike and Sully are back, but they are not friends till the end – well, at least not until the third act. It’s as if Pixar Animation Studios took a look at MONSTERS INC. and said, “The Mike-Sully relationship [...]

Cinefantatique’s video review of EPIC, including footage from the movie.

EPIC: stunning beauty, stolid story

EPIC: stunning beauty, stolid story

Blue Sky Pictures offers epic artistry bereft of lively characters or dialogue.
EPIC – the new computer-animated film from 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios – marks an achievement of note, though not of honor: it is the most beautiful boring movie ever made. The 3D virtual photography is not merely eye candy; it is [...]

CFQ Podcast 4-14.2: Jurassic Park, 6 Souls & The Brass Teapot

Do you ever feel your Sense of Wonder being overwhelmed? We certainly did this past weekend (in terms of quantity if not quality) with no less than six horror, fantasy, and/or science fiction films opening in U.S. theatres – some nationwide, some in limited engagements. EVIL DEAD, THALE, and EDDIE: THE SLEEPWALKING CANNIBAL were covered [...]
