Red Riding Hood Trailer is Twilighty and Kinda Lame

Am I the only person in America who doesn’t see the appeal of Amanda Seyfried? I didn’t see Mamma Mia! (thank the LORD), so maybe I’m missing some perspective that is vital in my critique, but I have seen Jennifer’s Body and I wasn’t that impressed. Either way, I’m getting ahead of myself. Who is not as important as what in the case of the upcoming horror movie Red Riding Hood, helmed by Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke. Honestly, upon seeing

Trailer Tuesday: My Least Favorite Pixar Movie Has a Sequel and a Trailer

Pixar can do no wrong, but even though they crap gold bricks, sometimes even the vaunted makers of Toy Story, The Incredibles, Up and Wall-E make a less than stellar movie. Such is the case with Cars, and now, this summer, we get to reunite with Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson), Mater (Larry the Cable Guy), Sally (Bonnie Hunt), Mack (John Ratzenberger) in Cars 2. Joining the regulars for the second helping are Michael Caine (The Dark Knight) as Finn McMissle,

Trailer Tuesday – Family Guy: It’s a Trap Trailer Makes Me Giddy for December 21st!

I don’t watch much TV. Maybe it’s a window into my personality, but TV requires a commitment, even with DVR, that a 90 to 120 minute movie theater viewing does not. Plus, excluding some cable TV shows, most of the drama on the boob tube is sub-par storytelling and bland acting, at best. I realize movies don’t always knock it out of the park, but like a one-night-stand, at least I can sneak out of bed and not feel obligated

Your Highness Redband Trailer is Hilarious (Oh, and Natalie Portman is HOT!)

I’m not sure I can find the right words to describe how hard I laughed through this redband (read: NSFW) trailer for the upcoming comedy, Your Highness, directed by David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express). It stars James Franco (127 Hours) and Danny McBride (Due Date) as two brothers who set out on a quest to save Franco’s girlfriend, played by Zooey Deschanel (Yes Man), from an evil wizard, played by Justin Theroux, who is probably better known for writing Iron

Green Lantern Trailer has Landed and I’m Not Impressed

I have a man-crush on Ryan Reynolds, I love superheroes and I dig the summer box office, but color me not impressed with the first Green Lantern trailer. I realize this is a teaser trailer, but nothing in this preview hooked me – not even Reynolds’ trademark snark. I am going to go out on a limb and say this movie is headed for disaster. Sorry DC Comics and Green Lantern fans. This looks super boring. Check out the trailer

Trailer Tuesday: The Way Back

I stumbled upon the trailer for Peter Weir’s (Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, The Truman Show, Dead Poets Society) new epic escape/adventure film by accident, but after watching the preview, looking at the cast list and reading about the story, it is definitely on my must-see list for 2011 (it opens in limited release, probably holding out hope for Oscar season, on December 29, 2010, and wide release on January 21, 2011). The Way Back stars

Nudity in The Deathly Hallows? The Truth About Potter’s Parts.

If you live in Utah, you know the way rumors spread through Mormondom like napalm, and you’ve  also probably heard people grumbling and asking questions about whether or not Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part I has nudity or not. I’m not sure who ignited this particular brouhaha, but it seems picked the story up from who knows where and then it spread through Facebook and Twitter quicker than you can say Mahonri Moriacumer. Here’s my best guess:

Battle: Los Angeles Gives Me a Viagra Moment

I’m 36 and I don’t need Viagra, but after watching this trailer, I’m pretty sure this is what it’s like to have one of those four-hour problems where there is no chance in hell you’d walk into a hospital emergency room looking for assistance. That’s right, let me introduce you to the coolest trailer for a movie with the lamest name – Battle: Los Angeles. The plot is obvious – aliens have arrived and ready to annihilate the human race – and

Love and Other Drugs Redband Trailer Shows Viagra Moment

I am an unabashed hater of Jake Gyllenhaal. Maybe it’s his good looks and winning personality, but I don’t think he’s the Hollywood star and first-class actor the media often portrays him as. I liked him in October Sky, before  his pubes sprouted and his voice changed, and I thought he did a decent job in David Fincher’s Zodiac. But that’s about it. He was overrated in Brokeback Mountain and I thought he was stunningly ridiculous in Prince of Persia:
