I have been very busy lately. Very busy. In addition to my day job of web development, which I work roughly eight hours a day, give or take, I also take client work when I can (I have to the freedom to do this with my job). Plus I see at least one movie every week, podcast about it every week, and write various bits and pieces for the site every day — well except I’ve gotten to the point…
The Giver — ReviewJeff Bridge’s passion project, ‘The Giver’, is the novel by Lois Lowry adapted to film. Most critics are chewing it out. The audience likes it, and most importantly, we like it! The movie is… Read the review »
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) — ReviewI expected to hate this film. And to be fair, I had every reason to believe I would — not at all the least of which is Michael Bay’s involvement as producer. Then there’s the fact that this is a movie reboot of a franchise that… Read »
Galaxy Quest — ReviewWe’ve decided to take a break from new films on this week’s episode of The MovieByte Podcast because JOE AND CHAD HAVE NEVER SEEN GALAXY QUEST! In what universe am I the one who has seen more films than someone else? It’s been… Read »

‘Godzilla’ Writer Max Borenstein to Script ‘Godzilla 2′
Godzilla 2 already has a release date, director, and list of monsters in place, and now it also has a writer. Max Borenstein, who scripted this summer’s Godzilla, will be back to write the sequel.
Deadline reports that Borenstein’s deal with Legendary has already closed. Details on the overall plot of the new movie haven’t been revealed, but kaiju teased at Legendary’s Comic-Con panel …
‘Supergirl’ TV Series Coming to CBS
Supergirl is coming to CBS. The network has just landed the DC Comics adaptation, which is being executive produced by Greg Berlanti (Arrow) and Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family).
The pickup means that, if all goes well, four of the five broadcast networks will airing shows based on DC characters next season. The fifth, ABC, will still be in the costumed-hero game, with Marvel’s Agents of…
Roberto Orci Drops ‘Power Rangers’ To Focus on Next ‘Star Trek’ Film
In order to deliver a Trek film by the Summer of 2016, Orci is going to be very busy for the next 21 months or so. And apparently this has caused Bob to cut some stuff from his to-do list. In July we reported that he had signed on as an executive producer for a Power Rangers reboot. But now Deadline is reporting that Orci has dropped out of the project “because his Star Trek 3 directing…
‘Big Eyes’ Trailer - Starring Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz
I like Amy Adams in anything I have seen her in. Yes, yes, Man of Steel was a terrible movie that I hope with all my heart I never have to watch again, but Amy Adams was good in it.
Christoph Waltz I have actually only seen in two films, but I thought he was good in both.
On that basis, I am interested in this film. I’m not much of an art watcher, but this film does look interesting. It takes…
CGI Animated ‘Popeye’ Test Footage
Popeye was one of my mainstay cartoons growing up. It was funny and unique and I enjoyed it immensely. Looking back on it, it’s pretty cheesy and probably not really worth watching. But it still holds a special place in my heart.
I was unaware of this CGI movie until just now, and I have to admit the idea of it is not very endearing. Much like my initial thoughts on the Peanuts film, I just…
The Practical Effects Abound in ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ Behind the Scenes
On of the better films this year was Edge of Tomorrow. It was fun, funny, dramatic, and had a great story. One thing that might surprise you though, is that it apparently made use of a lot more practical effects than you might imagine. We often assume that modern sci-fi is filled with green screen and CGI, and yes those things are most certainly present in Edge of Tomorrow, but this b-roll reel…
‘The Judge’ Trailer 2
If Billy Bob Thornton doesn’t ruin this film, it’s going to be great I think. I’m in and I sure hope I’m not disappointed. The film primarily stars Robert Downy Jr. and Robert Duvall. Billy Bob Thornton is going to play a fairly major role though, it looks like (ugh), as the prosecutor of our two protagonist’s case.
The film will also star Vera Farmiga, Leighton Meester, and Vincent D’Onofrio.…
‘Bourne’ Talk On The Playlist
Politics, politics, politics. It’s the name of the game in Hollywood. Earlier this summer, producer Frank Marshall insisted Matt Damon wasn’t returning to the ‘Bourne’ series (because he had to) and now, he’s essentially admitting to it because the cards are all on the table. Yes, Matt Damon is coming back to play Jason Bourne, but it’s complicated (as THR says, “Let’s hope Matt…
