From the Files of Suck: Behold the Battleship Trailer

It was only a matter of time before Hollywood stopped raping remaking films from the 80s and moved on to greener, more creative pastures – like board games. I guess technically Battleship isn’t a board game, but you get my drift. When Peter Berg, whom I typically hold in high esteem as a director (The Kingdom, Hancock), announced he’d be bringing “you sunk my” Battleship to the big screen, I was dumbfounded and horrified. Now, after watching the teaser trailer,

Man of Steel Postponed is Horse Poopy

So you know how everybody was pooping there pants over how the new Superman movie Man of Steel  was going to come out next year in December? Well bring out the tissues because they decided to postpone it for six months. I know it’s pathetic and I’m pretty sure they will come out with some explanation why, but I already put it on my calendar in pen. How am I supposed to get that out? Huh Hollywood? Even if I scratch

Under the Banner of Heaven Coming to the Big Screen via Ron Howard

I’ve read Jon Krakauer’s Under the Banner of Heaven and never in a million years did I think it would be brought to life on the big-screen. I also never imagined Ron Howard (Frost/Nixon) would be the man behind the camera for such a disturbing and unsettling story. For those who aren’t familliar with the book, Krakauer – the writer behind Into the Wild and Into Thin Air – weaves the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day

Soderbergh’s Contagion Puckers my Pruney

Bird flu. Swine flu. Pandemic. Chances are you’ve heard those words in the media over the last few years, and, if you’re like me, even though you scoffed somewhat at the chance of some violent outbreak, you’ll readily admit your buttcheeks were clinched at the prospect of the flu reaping havoc on life as we know it. Thanks to our Hollywood pal, Steven Soderbergh, the director behind such movies as Sex, Lies, and Videotape, Erin Brockovich, Traffic, Ocean’s Eleven (and

The Amazing Spider-Man Teaser Trailer > The Dark Knight Rises Teaser Trailer

The Dark Knight Rises teaser trailer debuted in front of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 last Friday and popped up officially online a few days thereafter, and never in my wildest imagination did I think Spider-Man would beat out Batman for my love and attention this week, but boyhowdy, director Marc Webb, the man behind (500) Days of Summer, has fashioned a trailer that is stylistic, brooding, intriguing and makes his re-boot, The Amazing Spider-Man, easily

The Hunger Games gets a Fiery Motion Poster!

It’s been awhile since we’ve had any posts about The Hunger Games movie. The cast and crew are busy filming the first installment of a quadrilogy (Lionsgate announced in May the three novels would be split into four films) somewhere in Burke County, North Carolina, and one would think, with a release date of March 23, 2012, that we’d see a teaser trailer within the next two or three months. Despite the slow-going on the news, a motion poster for

The Dark Knight Teaser Trailer Excites and Disappoints

Judas H. Priest! I cannot believe I sat through a second showing of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows – Part 2 just to catch a big screen glimpse of the much-anticipated, long-awaited teaser trailer for The Dark Knight Rises, due in theaters July 20, 2012. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed The Deathly Hallows – Part 2, but I’m no Hogwarts zealot. Once is enough for me. Still, Christopher Nolan’s musk of perfection led me to the

Movie Review: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 (B+)

I might be one of only a handful of people on planet Earth who have never read one word of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series of books. Let’s just get that out of the way right now, because you need to know where my opinions are coming from. Unlike the hordes of Harry Potter fans, during the movies I don’t pick up on all the little ins and outs and various wizard secrets. People are laughing and crying and I’m
