    Watch: Red Band Trailer For 'Take Me Home Tonight' Is The R-Rated '80s Movie You Always Wanted

    Generally, when a film sits around as long as "Take Me Home Tonight" (formerly known as "Kids In America") has (filming wrapped way back in 2007), the perception is that it's a road apple. But as Topher Grace related in December, it was actually the film's wanton approach to drugs that caused the ho...

    "Cold Weather" and the Mystery of the Lost Detective Genre

    Genre baiting seems a good way to woo people into indie film. But is it too often a bait and switch game? Sci-fi geeks favoring big budget movies tend to be disappointed by stuff like "Monsters" and the recent Sundance breakout "Another Earth." And detective mystery fans like myself may be underwhelmed by revisionist fare like Aaron Katz's "Cold Weather," which has a slow build and then also an unsatisfying follow-through. I am not a fan of Rian Johnson's popular high school 'noir', "Brick," either, so I'm probably in the minority once again. I can say, however, that I loved the first half of "Cold Weather" more than I liked most whole films ...

    Burton's Dark Shadows Gets Green, Winterbottom's Hardy Trishna Reinterpretation

    - Tim Burton's reworking of 60s gothic soap opera Dark Shadows centers on vampire Barnabas Collins (to be played by Johnny Depp) and his escapades with witches, monsters, ghosts and the like. Eva Green will play the powerful witch Angelique, with whom Collins enjoys a love/hate relationship. Since her breakout role in Casino Royale, the French actress has gone somewhat unnoticed (she had a supporting role in 2007's The Golden Compass). Now, she has Perfect Sense (see trailer below), boarding school drama Cracks (March 18), a Maria Callas TV biopic and more to come. Vampire expert Seth Grahame-Smith adapted Dark Shadows; he also wrote Abraham ...
