    Guillermo Del Toro Says He's Actively Trying To Develop 'Hellboy 3'

    By all accounts, Guillermo del Toro is about to step up to the next level. It's easy to remember that while he's had critical Oscar-nominated films like "Pan's Labyrinth" and is an unimpeachable geek idol, he's never had a true smash hit. But next summer's megabudget "Pacific Rim" is looking poised ...

    Review: 'Bad Ass' Adds Intriguing Dimension To Hit Viral Video, Then Squanders It With Tacky Exploitation Trappings

    All hail VOD, the format giving new life to disreputable exploitation films. It was problematic to stock them on DVD shelves next to the likes of “Kangaroo Jack” and “The Chronicles Of Riddick.” Now, the cheapest, tackiest, most base thrills are only a click away, allowing an opportunistic indie lik...

    Guillermo del Toro Confirms Ron Perlman for 'Pacific Rim'

    Few filmmakers seem to have as much on his plate as Guillermo del Toro. He always has a plethora of projects threatening to occupy his time, this is even though the director hasn't had a film in theaters since 2008's fantastical superhero tale "Hellboy II: The Golden Army." He rece...

    Review: 'Bunraku' Wants To Be 'Sin City' But Is More Like 'The Spirit'

    When you go to see any movie, particularly a genre picture, you are required to make a handshake deal with the film regarding the world it's trying to establish. If the picture can successfully convince you that, yes, this is a world of superheroes who are now retired, or this is a planet where no o...

    Empire Big Screen '11 Review: By Crom, 'Conan The Barbarian' Is Unbelievably Awful

    For a good quarter of a century, since Arnie hung up his loincloth in 1984's "Conan The Destroyer," people have been trying to bring Robert E. Howard's pulp sword-and-sorcery hero back to the big screen, most notably in John Milius' unmade "King Conan," while The Wachowskis, Robert Rodriguez and Bre...

    Empire Big Screen '11 Review: Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Drive' Reminds Us Why We Love The Movies

    Good god, it's been a bad year at the cinema. It's not so much that there've been a lot of awful films, although of course there have. It's more that there have been a lot of deeply average ones, and very little greatness to share around. Even the better end of the scale, it's not quite scratched the right itch for us: as good as, say, "Beginners" or "Win Win" or "Midnight in Paris" are, they don't quite get the synapses firing in the way that truly great cinema does. It's the kind of thing that the crime flick has always done well -- there's a reason that the Cahiers du Cinema crowd worshiped early American genre pictures, for example, but t...
