Screw You Hollywood: Halo 4 Forward Unto Dawn Web Series Laments What Might Have Been

Not to be Debbie Downer, but there is no way in hell a Halo movie will ever be made. If by some miracle the new Halo trilogy – starting with the release of Halo 4 this November – overpowers the Call of Duty behemoth and the Master Chief saga finds its mojo once more, then maybe, just maybe, we might see a Halo movie in the future. But I doubt it. Microsoft and Hollywood had it’s chance when the Halo

Full-Length Zero Dark Thirty Trailer a Testimony to Awesome and Awards!

Zero Dark Thirty, in a word, looks awesome. The Hurt Locker, Kathryn Bigelow’s last movie, was, in my opinion, a perfect film. This follow-up, a slice of cinematic heaven detailing the decade-long hunt for Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind 9/11, is assuredly as good, if not better. I’m saying that right now, having only seen the trailer. I trust Bigelow like I trust Christopher Nolan. Like I trust Pixar. Like I don’t trust George Lucas. This movie is going

Foxx, DiCaprio and Waltz Look Like Oscar Triple Threat in New Django Unchained Trailer

If you’ve seen any of Quentin Tarantino’s movies – Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill (Vol 1 &2) and Inglorious Basterds – then you know when you plant your butt in front of the big screen, you’re in for a methodical celebration of cinema and creativity, punctuated by crisp storytelling and marvelous dialogue. Tarantino is a master, easily one of the greatest working directors today (and probably one of the greatest of all-time), and after tackling the genres of crime,

Hobbit Poster Seems More Disney than Middle Earth

I’m not saying The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is going to suck. I’m not. It’s impossible for me not to put my faith in Peter Jackson, who, arguably, has never made a terrible movie. From The Lord of The Rings Trilogy to King Kong to The Lovely Bones, Jackson’s resume is stellar. I trust him completely. With that out of the way, is it just me or does this poster seem really Disney-ish and Muppety? I’m all for humor, but

The Silver Linings Playbook Trailer Makes Me Smile

I love Bradley Cooper (The Words) and Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games), but what sold me on this movie (aside from the sweet trailer music by The Lumineers “Ho Hey”), was this line from Bradley Cooper’s character, Pat Solitano, “This is what I believe to be true: You have to do everything you can, and if you stay positive you have a shot at a silver lining.” How awesome is that statment? Isn’t that what everyone hopes and dreams about?
