By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: It’s hard to believe that it’s been ten years since the modern comic book movie revival kicked off with “X-Men” and (kinda-sorta) “Unbreakable.” With the lukewarm response to the trailers to “Thor” and “Green Lantern,” and the Nolan “Batman” franchise wrapping up, we may just be on[...]

The Top 10 Scariest Horror Films from the last 20 years

By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: The goal of this list is pretty simple. I’m sure we’re all sick and tired of seeing countless ‘scariest movies of all time’ lists every Halloween that basically include some combination of the same several movies.

M. Night Shyamalan, at NY Comic Con, dives into “Unbreakable” sequel plans

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: M. Night Shyamalan’s career has been a roller coaster ride since “The Sixth Sense” launched him into the stratosphere in 1999. Currently, he’s at the bottom of one of the ride’s assorted hills, but he might begin to climb soon enough. What contributed to the filmmaker’s decline? Well,[...]

‘Devil’ is a great old-fashioned throwback of a horror film

By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: “Devil” is a deliciously old-fashioned throwback of a horror film. It is a myth, a ghost story told around a campfire, and a deliciously entertaining piece of pop entertainment. It is overly moralistic and quite heavy-handed in spots, but it succeeds in its very limited ambitions. It[...]

2010 Summer movies brought box office surprises

By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: The biggest surprise of summer 2010 is how few surprises there really were. Most of the expected smash hits were smash hits, the expected under-performers underperformed, and the bigger films without studio support tanked.

‘The Last Airbender’ contains few moments of grace within an inept story

By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender contains a few moments of grace and visual wonder, moments that dare to show me something I’ve never seen onscreen before. It’s a shame that said beats are contained within a stunningly inept story. Apparently, based on the first season of[...]

The Backstreet Boys’ “This is Us” tour is their best to date

By Kelcey Bridges HollywoodNews.com: The year was 1999. The Backstreet Boys ruled the airwaves and MTV with their #1 hit “I Want It That Way.” They set little girl’s hearts on fire and sold-out stadiums world wide. Fast forward to 2010, and the “boys” are still at it, even though their[...]

M. Night Shyamalan shopping a supernatural, missing child thriller?

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: We have a tendency nowadays to look ahead to a director’s next picture before their latest film even hits theaters. Don’t tell us about “Inception,” Mr. Nolan.
