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

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol Trailer Makes Me Proclaim I <3 Tom Cruise

There is a lot of Tom Cruise hate out there, but not from this guy. I happen to have a mancrush on Tom Cruise. He falls somewhere around Ryan Reynolds and Jerry Sloan. Cruise might be cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs but I actually think the guy gets a raw deal. So he’s extremely passionate about his religion and his wife. Big deal. The dude can act and he’s the real thing when it comes to kicking ass and taking names in

Grab your Depends: Horrible Bosses Red Band Trailer Online

I wasn’t so sure about Horrible Bosses, but after this last red band trailer (the movie hits theaters next Friday, July 8), I have to say I think this might vie with Bridesmaids for the top comedy of the summer. We all know, aside from a few funny lines and scenes, that The Hangover: Part 2 was a pretty solid disappointment, so the question is can another buddy comedy, this one about three dudes trying to whack their bosses, fare well

Breaking Dawn Teaser Trailer Reveals Bed-Breaking Freaky Time

It’s been a year since we’ve had to commune, by choice or force, with Edward (Robert Pattinson), Bella (Kristen Stewart), Jacob (Taylor Lautner) and the whole Forks, Washington crew, including the pasty-skinned, pissy Volturi creepies from Italy, whom we’ve seen briefly in the last two films. But hold on tight, Twihards, because The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 hits theaters on November 18, 2011 and the first preview hit the web earlier in the week.  You can watch

The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo Looks Absolutely Fincheriffic

Even though goodreads.com will show you I’ve been stuck on page 225 of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo since February 20, I must admit, after seeing this bootleg trailer for director David Fincher’s forthcoming movie, I’m a little more apt to put down my Call of Duty: Black Ops controller and put my shoulder to the wheel and push through the last 365 pages. The trailer below makes it look like butt-puckering goodness from page one to page 590,

Trailer Tues…I mean Friday: Fright Night

One of my favorite movies from the 1980s is the horror/comedy, Fright Night. It was released in theaters on August 2, 1985 and starred Chris Sarandon, i.e. Prince Humperdinck from The Princess Bride, William Ragsdale (who can be seen as Gary in the FX series Justified) and Roddy McDowall (best known for his role in the Planet of the Apes movies in the late 1960s an early 1970s). The movie was about a teenage boy who discovers the suave, single

It’s the Summer of Bateman! Horrible Bosses Looks Hilarious!

Despite popular belief, I don’t review movies for a living. I’m not sure anyone outside of Los Angeles, Chicago and New York could, even with a full time critic position, could claim they were actually making a “living,” either. So, like the rest of America, I slog through a 40 hour work week with an eye to the horizon and the future, hoping the smell of money and tanning oil will someday replace the chaffing of suit pants, the putrid

One Day Trailer Proves Romantic and Promising

I don’t know if it’s my advanced age or some desensitization to “chick flicks,” but I’m thinking One Day, a new romantic drama starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess, looks promising. In fact, I probably should repent straightway for mentioning “chick flick” in the same breath as this movie, especially since it’s directed by Lone Scherfig, the brilliant woman behind 2009’s An Education. I guess this is my easy way of admitting that I enjoy a good romance, but I

Trailer Tuesday: Immortals Rekindles 300 Magic and Sexiness

Hard to believe Zack Snyder’s 300 was in theaters in March 2007. Seems like just the other day I was at the press screening with hundreds of nerdy fanboys sweating and squealing at the film adaptation of Frank Miller’s classic graphic novel of King Leonidas and his Spartan army. Repeat viewings definitely are not as intense as the first time with 300, but one thing can’t be argued – Snyder’s movie is flat-out sexy. For those who are going through

13 Assassins – A samurai film worth your attention

13 Assassins is a film samurai fans have been waiting for. Unfortunately, it might be difficult for many to see the film in any type of theatrical setting. Assassins was released in Japan last year, and is scheduled for release in the US today (April 29th.) No theaters in Salt Lake will be showing 13 Assassins this weekend or next. This could be due to the high volume of Hollywood blockbusters scheduled for release in the coming weeks (Fast Five, Thor…) However,
