Event Horizon

Luke Evans and Orlando Bloom

Photo of the week: I was completely excited about a picture of Luke Evans and Orlando Bloom! Together! In Hobbity-type things. But then it’s not nearly as awesome of a picture as I was hoping for. So there’s two pictures of the week this week. . . . → more

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Minority Report

I read this in a Variety review I think, and it really resonated for me. . . . → more

Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

Of course most everyone loved this movie. Because J.R.R. Tolkien created such deep, rich, complex characters. And he did something amazing with them that just doesn’t happen now – he gave them nobility. . . . → more
