Seriously. Did you ever have a ridiculously good-looking friend who was also brilliant and talented, but they made some really bad choices and threw it all away? Victor Frankenstein is like that. This movie has so much going for it, and just fritters it away, like a goddamn frittering machine.
I’m the sort of person who reads up on movies before I go and see them. It’s very infrequent I just see something on a whim — but Push was one of the rare movies I went in blind. And somehow, in the age of today’s superhero blockbusters, it still stands as one of the most interesting superhero movies I’ve ever watched.
It's sad enough when a movie doesn't rock the box office — but at least some movies lose money in theaters only to become beloved cult classics later on. Which movie do you wish would get a new lease on life as a cult favorite?
Because it was garbage. BA-ZING!
In the new movie Trance, James McAvoy loses his memory and needs to be hypno-probed by Rosario Dawson. Amazingly, science fiction and fantasy have produced tons of way sillier amnesia storylines than that. Here are the 13 most insane memory-loss stories of all time.
Sometimes a movie sparks everybody's imagination months before it comes out. When a film gets talked about, that's usually a good thing — and it's an even better thing when it becomes the subject of memes and ideas. Unless those memes totally misrepresent what the movie's about, and wind up killing all interest in…
Creepy children who can see the future are a mainstay of movies and television — and a surprising number of them are artistically gifted. Put a crayon or magic marker in the hands of a little prophet, and he/she will draw you a deathly masterpiece every time.
Finding an easier way to mow the lawn is not a new concept, but this is one of the first to throw an ATV into the mix.
MobileMe will die someday. Just not anytime soon, since apple will keep MobileMe operational until June 30, 2012. But now that iCloud is here (and free), all MobileMe subscriptions from the last year, will be free until they expire.
Serious Twitter heads might be rejoicing that @mentions now get pushed to your phone via text—but some of us don't want to be bothered. Here's how to easily opt out of the potentially-aggravating service, if you so please.
Blackberry's push notifications are now available to any developer who'd like to stick 'em in any Blackberry app. Since battery-friendly push is the best part of owning a Blackberry, this update sounds fantastic.
Push director Paul McGuigan has let slip a couple of details about the British television fantasy series he's working on with comics writer Grant Morrison, calling it "Twin Peaks meets Brigadoon".
Push, the vastly underrated film about people with special mind powers - and basically everything Heroes should be but isn't - is getting a TV series. This could be the clever real-world superhero series we've been asking for.
This was a year of extremes: huge CG-heavy spectacles and low-budget gems. Most of all, 2009 made us feel the boundaries of cinema were stretched... for good and ill. Here are the 10 best and 10 worst films of 2009.
Push. It's not just a verb that sends people careening down a flight of stairs. It's also not just for guys in suits diddling on BlackBerrys. You hear it featured on new iPhone apps every week. So, what is it?
