Finally, The Road Gets a Top Notch Trailer

We’ve been hearing mixed reviews for The Road, based on Cormac McCarthy’s harrowing novel of the same name, since May. Some call it the best film of the year, others think it’s not so stellar. I have been dissapointed with the trailers released for the movie, as I don’t think they have established an identity and an emotional resonance with viewers, particularly me, a huge fan of the book. Until now. This new trailer finally hits the bullseye. Check it

Halloween 101: Ten Disturbing Movie Deaths

In Utah, Halloween isn’t simply a dress-up day where one freezes his grapes off while trekking the kiddies through the darkened neighborhood wastelands, searching for a fun-sized Snickers or Twix, instead finding cold porches and lonely Jack-O-Lanterns (apparently everyone else is trunk-or-treating – LAME). No, it’s a time where we like to reflect on the scariest elements and goodies our friends in Hollywood have offered us over the years. Today’s topic? Ten Disturbing Movie Deaths. As tens of thousands of

Updated: Full Length Avatar Trailer Online

Until last weekend, my must-see thermometer had James Cameron’s Avatar deadlocked at tepid. The hype, along with Cameron’s overzealous bravado and the not-so-fresh teaser trailer was enough to extinguish any anticipation I once had for this “groundbreaking” movie.  However, after watching the full-length Avatar trailer last weekend (it was attached to Paranormal Activity), I must say, I am now enthusiastically waiting for the film’s December 19th release. Check out the trailer below, and, as always, let us know your thoughts.

See More Avatar Through the Miracle of Advertising

Avatar, the massive James Cameron project too recently unknown to the general public, is beginning to find its legs thanks to a new, story-based trailer attached to the uber-trending Paranormal Activity. The better trailer still feels super late, but at least people know it’s coming in less than two months. Studio reassurances of massive marketing are abounding and apparently, now is the time to expect the Avatar marketing flood (that flood promised way back at Comic Con?)– there’s a lot

Star Trek Gets a Plot Hole Filled

It was decades ago– in Hollywood release schedule years– when Star Trek lens flared its way to theaters back in May. There’s no question the resuscitation attempt worked– the movie delivered fun to audiences and a whole lot of loot for Paramount. But despite the good times had with a bombastic score and the return of busty green alien chicks that would later shoot exploding arrows, one question remained: what the hell was the villain Nero doing for the 20

Halloween 101: Scariest Movie Villains

In Utah, Halloween isn’t simply a dress-up day where one freezes his grapes off while trekking the kiddies through the darkened neighborhood wastelands, searching for a fun-sized Snickers or Twix, instead finding cold porches and lonely Jack-O-Lanterns (apparently everyone else is trunk-or-treating – LAME). No, it’s a time where I like to reflect on the scariest elements and goodies our friends in Hollywood have offered me over the years. Today’s topic? Scariest movie villains.

Paranormal Activity Original Ending (POSSIBLE SPOILER!)

UPDATE: THIS VIDEO HAS BEEN REMOVED BY PARAMOUNT PICTURES. SORRY! Hurry and watch this now, because I’m betting this will be gone within a few hours. If you’ve seen Paranormal Activity, then you know how the movie ends in theaters, but below is the original “alternate” ending for Paranormal Activity. I can appreciate what Oren Peli is trying to do in this alternate version, but the ending now in theaters is by far the creepiest and better finale to the

Black Dynamite May Be The Best Film of the Year

And I haven’t even seen it. Rolling out of this year’s Sundance (where it received an official selection), and from the absolutely fantastic trailer alone, Black Dynamite looks to have nailed every cheap and unintentionally hilarious note of hilarity born from 70’s era Blaxploitation films. Aimed squarely at urban youth, these films took big screen action scenarios usually reserved for white actors and plopped them in the crime-ridden ghetto while throwing in a heady mix of bravado, soul, and stick-it-to-the-maninism.

Ghosts, Shmosts– Collapse Offers Up (maybe) Real Halloween Scares

So apparently Halloween’s on the very near horizon. Days away, even– which means “scariest” lists are where it’s at. Top scary movies, scariest villains and scariest John Travolta performances. And while the offerings dig up solid recommendations for fun “haunted house scares”, how about a real one? One that skips the imaginary monsters, slamming doors or unexplained midnight hickies. The kind of plausible, real world stuff that leads to gulping bottles of Tums and sleeping in the corner on a
