Trailer Tuesday: Hot Tub Time Machine

Dan is headed off to the land of San Diego, which, as we all know, translates to “whale’s vagina” in German. So because I couldn’t decide between posting Cop Out or Hot Tub Time Machine, I’m going to post another Trailer Tuesday by proxy for ol’ Dan. I know this is what he would have wanted me to pick. I just have no words for what I see in this preview. Will it suck? Yes. Will it be absolutely banal

Trailer Tuesday: Cop Out

There were times during this preview for Kevin Smith’s new film, Cop Out, that I laughed out loud, but mainly I kind of sighed and shrugged my shoulders and then crossed my fingers hoping this comedy will turn out better than it’s first trailer. Why? Because I like Bruce Willis and I enjoy Sean William Scott. Tracy Morgan, not so much. Cop Out, formally titled A Couple of Dicks, opens on February 26, 2010. Check out the trailer below and

Happy Holidays from Andy at The Movies.com!

It’s going to be quiet around here for the next few days, and rightfully so – it’s freakin’ Christmas and it’s time to share special moments with the ones we love. We’ll be back with some year-end best/worst lists next week, and check later tonight for a review of Sherlock Holmes. But most of all, have a the hap hap happiest Christmas since Fred Astaire danced with Danny F***ing Kaye!

Movie Review: Sherlock Holmes (Dan’s Take)

Robert Downey Jr. has become a force of nature. Once just a great actor, the dude has seen his career resuscitated into the open arms of an adoring public who now sees him as their cinematic best friend to giddily bury under spade fulls of lavish praise. If there’s any doubt Downey Jr.’s charm and dynamism will single-handedly open Sherlock Holmes to fat gobs of cash while allowing director Guy Ritchie a leg up and out of his London Gangster

The Karate Kid Trailer Isn’t The Best Around

Remakes can be insufferable (take your pick from any horror remake over the last decade… or The Day The Earth Stood Still). They can also hold their own (3:10 to Yuma, The Ring, Clash of the Titans?). But mostly, they’re insufferable. Apparently, thanks to the debut of its trailer, the remake of the 80’s classic The Karate Kid plans on upholding the tradition. And that’s not because we hate remakes. AATM has a firm policy: “Regardless of crappy track record,

Theater Goobs Monkeyhump Avatar’s 3D

After screening a murky, dark and generally crappy presentation of Sherlock Holmes last night, sympathy is in full effect for Danny, a regular reader/commenter here at AATM who recently pointed out the horrible 3D experience he had with Avatar at a Westates theater: I’ve never had an issue seeing 3D at the theater. [I] saw Up in 3D and A Christmas Carol 3D and both were fine. I got the depth of field and all was nifty. But this…this was

Trailer Two-Fer Tuesday: Kick-Ass (Hit Girl)

At this point, Kick Ass is percolating in your conscious. You’ve seen the all ages trailer and Condor Man’s taxi cab facial. You’ve seen Nicholas Cage lovingly put a couple slugs into his little girl’s kevlar chest. And sure, while the little girl (AKA- Hit Girl) can take a .45  caliber punch, she can also deliver a few herself. Empire recently posted an exclusive red band Kick Ass Hit Girl trailer, one that Trailer Addict was kind enough to rip

Trailer Tuesday: Shrek Forever After/The Runaways

Shrek Forever After and The Runaways? Nothing in common. Still, we’re debuting the Shrek Forever After trailer here at AATM, which morally requires an attempt to salvage a shred of my dignity and self respect. So hey! You’re the winner with a two-for-one! Or a half-loser. Your call. First up, Shrek Please End This Forever After you’ve wrung this sucker dry. I’ll cop to the fact Shrek Uno had sassy originality when it debuted with its “look at me I’m

Ryan Bingham Sings The Weary Kind from Crazy Heart

Crazy Heart is in limited release so I’ve been forbidden to post my review yet, but I will say this – it is definitely one of the year’s best films. It’s like a kinder, gentler, blue-sky version of last year’s The Wrestler. One of the film’s strengths is the soundtrack, especially the song “The Weary Kind.” Jeff Bridges, Robert Duvall and Collin Farrell all sing on the soundtrack, due out on January 19th, 2010. Ryan Bingham co-wrote the song with
