Take That, Mayans! Warm Bodies Reverses the Zombie Trend (Part 1 of 2)

Part 1 — The Apocalypse (or Lack Thereof) Everyone who’s hip with the internet jive is by now so tired of the mere idea of walking corpses that the thought of going to a movie theater to watch dead, shuffling masses is cause for near riot. Oh, and they’re sick of zombie movies too. So […]

Filmpopper Review: Warm Bodies

Zombies are in right now. Everywhere you go you see zombie related paraphernalia. Long before this I’ve had a soft spot in my heart for the undead. Ever since my first zombie shoot em up game. Naturally I was pretty excited for this romeo and juliet style love affair… between a member of the dead and […]

Filmpopper Review: Les Misérables

If you have ever read the book, or seen the musical and are worried that director Tom Hooper’s Les Miserables update will disappoint, then your worries can be laid to rest. For those of you unfamiliar, the story is set in 19th century France and follows Jean Valjean, ( Hugh Jackman) who after being imprisoned for 19 […]

Filmpopper Review: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

It’s back to Middle-earth we go in Peter Jackson’s most recent production in J.R.R Tolkien’s fantasy world. However, rather than follow the epic journey to save the world we get to follow a whimsical quest by hobbit Bilbo Baggins as he journeys with a group of dwarves and a familiar wizard to help take back the dwarves […]

Filmpopper Review: The Dark Knight Rises

The movie that people have been waiting upon for years is finally hitting the big screens. The final chapter in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy is here in an epic fashion. Returning an all-star cast from the previous two movies and throwing in a few new ones the heroic finale is here. Christian Bale returns to […]

Filmpopper Review: The Avengers

Filmpopper Review: The Hunger Games

Well perhaps the first big movie of the year is finally here.  The much anticipated Hunger Games film, based off of the book by Suzanne Collins, comes out this weekend. For those out of the loop who aren’t too familiar with the story it takes place after a major war.  After the war the country […]

Note: The opinions and statements in this story are mine and not necessarily representative of the FilmPopper.com website or it’s other writers. Please leave your hate comments for me below. Since the news of Tim Burton possibly making Pinocchio his next project, I’ve been bagging on him pretty hard via Twitter and Facebook. My comments are […]

Zombies: A Top 10 List of Everything Zombie

With the craze in Zombies continually growing we at Filmpopper thought it’d be a good idea to review the top ten media forms of zombie action to have everyone better ready to face the impending apocalypse.  Whether your thing is the slow shuffling zombies of George Romero or the zombies capable of sprinting we have […]

Filmpopper Review: Sherlock Holmes A Game Of Shadows

Sherlock Holmes A Game Of Shadows is the much anticipated sequel to 2009’s hit movie.  We get the chance to follow Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr) and his faithful sidekick Dr. Watson (Jude Law) on yet another adventure as they confront the infamous villain Professor Moriarty. I will admit I really enjoyed the Sherlock Holmes […]

Five Things I DON’T Want To See In The Next ‘Star Trek’ Film

So J.J. Abrams is quickly finishing off the script, assembling his villains and supporting cast for the sequel of his amazingly successful Star Trek reboot. And as with any sequel to a film that did so well, rumors start to fly our of control. Star Trek 2 is no exception, the rumors about the sequel […]

Filmpopper Review: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1

A man’s Review: Breaking Dawn is the latest in a line of Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight Saga books turned movie.  If you’ve seen the last few in the series you probably know what to expect.  So let’s get right to it. I’m going to be honest as far as all the Twilight movies go I thought […]

Filmpopper Review: ‘In Time’

There’s very few original ideas coming out of Hollywood these days, so the idea of In Time intrigued me quite a bit.  Unfortunately I have to say the movie did not live up to my expectations. I liked the original ideas behind it.  I even kind of liked the Robin Hood like feel that the movie portrays. […]

Filmpopper Review: Footloose

Footloose is the latest film to be remade by Hollywood.  Many of you probably remember the original, you know, the one with Kevin Bacon and tractor chicken?   Well essentially this isn’t a true remake.  It takes place in today’s day and age but tells the exact same story.  A small town struck by tragedy bans dancing, […]

Filmpopper Review: Abduction

Abduction is the latest action movie to come out.  Helping to kick off the boring fall movie season.  I will admit I was going into this movie with very low expectations.  I wouldn’t exactly call Taylor Lautner the best actor ever after all. Taylor Lautner plays the teenager we knows how to fight amazingly well for […]

Filmpopper Review: Apollo 18

Apollo 18 is out.  Perhaps the last movie I was really excited to see this summer.  The story follows three astronauts on the “Apollo 18” mission.  Needless to say if we look in the history books there was no Apollo 18, and this story tells us why. Shot from the point of view of several […]

Filmpopper Review: Friends With Benefits

Friends With Benefits is the latest romantic comedy to hit theater staring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis.

Filmpopper Review: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

Finally the epic conclusion to one of the top selling book and movie series of all time.  J.K Rowling’s Deathly Hallows has been split into two parts for the film adaption.  The first part coming out last holiday season. I would go as far to say this was probably the most anticipated movie of the […]

Filmpopper Review: Transformers Dark Of The Moon

The long awaited Michael Bay Transformer movie is out.  Transformers Dark Of The Moon was one of my most anticipated films of the summer. Shia Lebouf returns as Sam with his new co-star Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as Carly.  The movies begins in the early 60’s and begins to weave a story that the moon landing was […]

Filmpopper Review: Super 8

Filmpopper Review: X-Men: First Class

X-Men: First Class is the latest superhero blockbuster to come out this summer.  This movie hasn’t been receiving as much advertising or hype as others such as Thor, The Green Lantern, or Captain America, BUT, it was my most anticipated superhero film. X-Men: First Class is a prequel to the other X-Men series of years past.  This […]

The Best and Worst Fourth Episodes in a Film Franchise

So the Shrek franchise has reached its fourth episode, quite a rarity in the movie business. Franchise characters often get played out, become boring and story lines get more ridiculous with each outing past an initial sequel.

Films-Movies in 2010 That I’m Excited About

I know everyone complains about remakes, revamps and sequels, but the fact is that collectively they are usually the most talked about movies of the year and often times the highest money earners. 2009 was full of remakes and adaptations from television, books and video games and 2010 seems to offer a lot more of […]
