Cast Makes Polanski’s Carnage Look Amazing

I’m not sure Carnage will be a box-office success, but I can’t imagine with this cast (and pedophilia-loving director, Roman Polanski) – Jodie Foster (The Brave One), Kate Winslet (The Reader), Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Bastards) and John C. Reilly (Cyrus) – the movie won’t get massive critical praise and, one might assume, Oscar buzz. The story is quite simple: After their children are involved in a schoolyard fight, the two sets of parents meet to discuss what happened and iron out

The Avengers Teaser Trailer Takes My Scarlett Johansson Lust to New Levels!

I’m not on the “OMG! Joss Wedon is the shizniz and the second coming of cinematic Jesus!” bandwagon and I’m not a follower of The Avengers. It’s definitely not a movie I am aching to see in 2012.

Seriously, not sure

Cameron Crowe is Back with We Bought a Zoo!

When I watch the trailer for Crowe’s new movie, We Bought a Zoo, I can’t

The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo is Oscar-licious

I’ve noted on AATM before the difficulty I had plowing through Stieg Larsson’s worldwide bestseller, The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo, but I stuck with the book and after the tedious first 250 or so pages the book exploded and I burned through the remaining pages with a feverish, hungry-for-more, pace. I’m currently almost done with the second book, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and am eagerly awaiting David Fincher’s movie version, due to hit theaters on December 21,

American Reunion Red Band Teaser Trailer Makes Me Giddy for Springtime!

The American Pie series of movies (American Pie, American Pie 2, American Wedding) are definitely on my Showcase of Shame – movies that most critics crap on, but I have a soft spot for – and I’m definitely stoked to see the gang from East Great Falls again on the big screen. What makes the American Pie movies so funny and the characters – Stifler (Seann William Scott), Jim (Jason Biggs), Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas), Oz (Chris Klein), Finch (Eddie
