Sixish Years Later, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy Arrives

When Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy made its American debuted on July 9, 2004, it was instantly hailed as an insightful, groundbreaking masterwork of American Cinema. On this, Anchorman‘s six year, one month and one day anniversary, we take a look back at a towering achievement that not only affirmed who we are as human beings, but managed to capture that spirit in a glass case of emotion. We salute you Will Farrell and Adam McKay and congratulate you

Movie Review: The Last Airbender (C-)

By DAN VINTON If there’s one thing The Last Airbender does well, it proves any mystique surrounding M. Night Shaymalan is gone. With this coffin-bound nail, all residual goodwill The Sixth Sense director retained from followup successes like Unbreakable, Signs and even the creepy but fatally flawed The Village has been throttled by his is own hands. Shaymalan’s latest, (based on the 2005-2008 Nickelodeon cartoon series I’ve never seen), builds a likable, tactile, genuinely fascinating and lushly art-directed world of

Trailer Tuesday (Thursday Bonus!): Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World

If there’s anything summer 2010 movies have been severely lacking, it’s fun and originality.Β  Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (based on the comic of the same name) wants to change all that. Michael Cera– whose one-note falsetto, whispered shtick is one I’m not quite tired of yet– is Scott Pilgrim, a dude who meets the girl of his dreams and is subsequently tasked with knocking her seven evil exes the crap out… in amplified video game/comic book style. The fact

The A-Team Movie Review (Dan’s Take) B+

With childhood nostalgia anchored firmly in the 80s, I’m a prime target for Hollywood’s recent nostalgia sweep. Thanks to a raging ego, contrarianism and a cold black heart however, I’m a hard sell– or like to think I am. I tend to like 80s nostalgia planted firmly in the 80s- big hair, fluffy innocence, original charm and all. And while we here at AATM are never against a remake/reboot, oftentimes they’re thin rehashes that rely on name brand only and

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Movie Review (B-)

With the combined might of uber-producer Jerry Bruckheimer, Jake Gyllenhall’s rockin’ abs and respected director Mike Newell (Donnie Brasco, Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire), Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time hits Memorial Day weekend with a big question mark: will this video-game based movie finally pass over the threshold of wretched to mediocre and inspire a franchise in vein of Pirates of the Caribbean? I’ll always argue a movie’s success should be based on its merits as

The Hurt Locker Meets Justin Beiber

Thanks to an incessant parade of celebrity shilling, meaningless awardery and bottom-barrel joke muckraking, I’ve made it a point to miss the MTV movie awards over the last few years. And while the award show made by the Hollywood Marketers Alliance is still a big shill, this clip kind of tilted me the other way, thanks mostly to the awesomeness of The Hurt Locker, the subtle self-effacing of Jeremy Renner and the smooth charm of Aziz Ansari. Then again, there’s

A-Team Clips a Predator

A-Teeeeeeeeeeaaaaaam! I may have some 80’s nostalgia tied to this one, but A-Team is one of the few summer movies I’m looking forward to. Refreshing, none-too-serious and over the top fun is always welcome– even if the green screen effects are a little… obvious. More The A-Team Videos

Not Trailer Tuesday: Rourke Meets Bavaria Beer

Despite his intense, quirkily inspired acting chops, Mickey Rourke has a reputation for being a bit of a douche. Not that AATM has gone all TMZ– we’re not particularly concerned about the way he fuels his method acting/behaves amidst the general human population, but his disposition is the key to understanding the self-effacing humor that’s running amok in this Dutch Beer ad. Say what you want about Rourke, but at least he’s got a sense of humor.

Batman 3 Gets All Official

In the event you haven’t heard, Chris Nolan must have Inception almost completely tied up: all of a sudden Batman 3 is scheduled for a July 2012 release date. As is, that’s a very quick turnaround schedule for a big film we haven’t heard much of anything about for the last two years. Batman Begins to Dark Knight had the benefits of a three year production schedule– Batman 3 gets two. While a lot of the casting is already in
