‘Fast and Furious 6′ Review

'Fast Five' attempted - and quite successfully I might add - a reboot of sorts for the entire 'Fast and Furious' franchise, turning a series of movies about car racing into one exciting heist film. It was big and brash and sweaty and a complete success. So where do you go from there? 'Fast and Furious 6' attempts to answer that question by adding an -er suffix to all those adjectives above. Bigger, brasher, sweatier.

'Fast and Furious 6' is like 'Fast Five' on nitrous - director Justin Lin hits that proverbial turbo boost to go bigger, faster, stronger - and at times, that is a great thing. But when the NOS runs out, the drag race just turns into a drag.

‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Writer Apologizes For “Unnecessary” Underwear Scene

There have been a lot of complaints about 'Star Trek Into Darkness' since the film opened, one of them from female fans who felt that having character Carol Marcus (Alice Eve) strip down to her bra and panties for no apparent reason was sexist. The complaints became too much for 'Star Trek Into Darkness' writer/producer Damon Lindelof who finally admitted the shot was "gratuitous" and "unnecessary."

Do you agree?

‘Wolverine’ Trailer: Are You Getting Excited, Bub?

Between 'Iron Man 3' and 'Man of Steel,' 'The Wolverine' has almost been the forgotten superhero movie this summer (which seems almost impossible considering Wolverine is one of the most popular comic book characters around). But Fox is looking to change that with this brand new 'Wolverine' trailer - giving us our biggest, and best, look at the film yet.

‘Bond 24′ – Will Christopher Nolan Direct the Next James Bond Film?

It was just a few weeks ago that Sam Mendes officially announced he wouldn't return to direct 'Bond 24' (what's more, he said the mere thought of returning to direct another James Bond film made him "physically ill") but producers aren't wasting any time finding a replacement. But how do you top 'Skyfall' - the biggest Bond film of all-time and a movie that made over $1 billion? You hire 'The Dark Knight' director Christopher Nolan.
