A Critical Loss

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/26/10 at 09:46 AM CT

For film critics and would-be critics alike it's a on a sad note that after 24 seasons, At the Movies is coming to a close.

The hit review show, started by popular duo Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert and later Roger Ebert and Richard Roeper is a victim of changing times. There is no doubt that Siskel and Ebert had a definite impact on the landscape of cinema. Whether glowing praise or scathing cr...

Release Me?

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/22/10 at 10:40 AM CT

There was quite a stir recently when Disney announced they were going to release Alice in Wonderland on DVD a scant three months from premiere. Some theater chains pulled the film, irate over the fact that they thought people would skip the theatrical release and wait for the home version.

Yet Alice has dominated the box office since its release. Sure, the 3D aspect had a lot to do with its su...

Read the Movie!

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/16/10 at 10:05 AM CT

I love films. I love watching them - analyzing them - making fun of them - quoting them - good, bad, unknown, classics - I will watch just about anything at least once.

However, I also love to read. I'm much more selective about what I read than watch, but I've read a good share of books over my time. And, like most people would agree, the book is pretty much always better than the movie. Whic...

Et tu Comedy?

It is a sad state of affairs how the once mighty parody has fallen. And don't get me started on the barrel-scraping that the National Lampoon name has resorted to.

I remember when parody films were actually funny. The days of Airplane! and Naked Gun. Slapstick and puns - visual gags that were actually well thought out. And Mel Brooks - Blazing Saddles, Spaceballs, heck even Men in Tights had i...

Just Dip, Baby Dip

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/08/10 at 10:13 AM CT

I noticed that one of the holy grails of Blu-Ray is coming out in early April - The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. If there was any series that deserves to be seen in full high-def glory it is surely the adventures of Frodo and crew.

Yet then my hopes were mercilessly crushed - because right there in the title it says "Theatrical Release". I already have the extended editions in DVD and if I'm goi...

Ad Nausea

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/02/10 at 11:41 AM CT

Not to sound like a crotchety old man, but back in my day, when Douglas Theaters still owned all the theaters around town, I remember showing up to a movie on time, watching the "let's go out to the lobby-type intro to get you buy popcorn or gift certificates, sitting through two, maybe three trailers, and then BAM movie.

If I showed up early, I didn't mind sitting through the advertisements...
