We need more Westerns. Brimming with the optimism of a country still being forged, the genre was a mainstay in Hollywood for decades. Back in the day, all of the biggest stars made Westerns. John Wayne. Paul Newman. Jimmy Stewart. The list goes on and on. Modern day stars like
Reactionary, regressive, and retrogressive, THE EQUALIZER is everything an action film shouldn’t be.
This time, we’re wondering about Wonder Woman and the X-Men movie verse while fending off predatory unicorns and hunting robots. Top that Gobbledygeek!
2 Guns arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on November 19. With Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington I had high hopes for a solid buddy action comedy. While there are decent moments of action, the film fails to deliver on story and pacing. There are so many moments that I found
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) unsurprisingly handed its best film and best director prizes to Ben Affleck’s Argo this past Sunday. The only major precursor left comes as the Writers Guild of America (WGA) reveals its picks for the best original and adapted screenplays of 2012
This weeks biggest releases are Flight, Celeste and Jesse Forever, and A Late Quartet. Denzel Washington’s brilliant performance as an alcoholic pilot who also has a problem with drugs in Flight has gotten him an Oscar nomination. Here’s a scene from Flight: And as usual, please don’t hesitate to share what
There is not much time left in the Oscar race. The most important awards announcement of the week came on Wednesday when the Producers Guild of America (PGA) revealed its nominees for the Daryl F. Zanuck Award for Producer of the Year in Theatrical Motion Pictures, which are: Argo, Beasts

Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, the most nominated film at the Screen Actors Guild’s SAG Awards, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Golden Globes,
I had the chance to see Michael Haneke’s Palme d’Or-winning Amour (Love) over the weekend. It also played the AFI Fest – and we’ll be talking about that in a bit – but I saw it here on the East Coast. The French-language aspect might hinder its chances at Oscar
I made sure that I went into this film with an open mind after reading numerous reviews. I can tell you now that I am glad I did, because it was definitely worth the ride. After three years, director Robert Zemeckis is back with probably his most intense movie to date. Flight is
Perhaps the biggest stories of note this week involve the 50th New York Film Festival: Ang Lee’s big-scale adventure Life of Pi will kick things off, while Robert Zemeckis’ drama Flight will close out the fest. Even before these announcements, these films seemed like good bets for Oscar consideration, but
Going to movie theaters these days can be ridiculously expensive, so viewers need to selective in these down economic times. That’s why we here at Screen Invasion always highlight what’s available on DVD/Blu-Ray and what’s on demand. There’s a lot of good movies out there, but everyone’s working off a finite
I was really excited to see Safehouse. It had everything that I’m looking for in a movie. Awesome song in the trailer: Check Denzel Washington playing a genius bad guy: Check Ryan Reynolds as Washington’s counterpart: Not sold right away but intrigued. The movie jumps right in, giving you little
