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,

Holy Bonerpants! Transformers: Dark of The Moon Looks Baytastic!

Say what you want about Michael Bay and poop all you want on Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen, but Bay knows how to make a slick action movie. You can argue story and substance all day long, but you can’t debate beauty and bang, because that’s what Bay does best. This is completely evident in the newest and longest trailer for the third movie in the Transformers franchise, Transformers: Dark of The Moon. I watched this two and a half

Please, Bridesmaids, Don’t Let Me Down

MacGruber cut me deep last May. It cut me real deep. Maybe I was in a state of euphoria for the oncoming summer weather and movies, especially since I live in Utah, which, everyone knows is Indian for holy-googly-moogly-it-is-colder-than-hell, but regardless, a movie I thought was going to be pretty funny (mainly after the red band trailer) turned out to be nothing of the sort. In fact, I don’t think I really laughed. This is why I’m a little gunshy

Happy Belated Trailer Tuesday II: Say Hi to Our Idiot Brother

How can anyone not absolutely not love Paul Rudd? Has he ever made a bad movie? Other than Dinner for Schmucks, probably not. He was fantastic in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgandy, The 40 Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up, I Love You, Man, and I even enjoyed him in The Oh in Ohio. And let’s not even get started on his cameos. Bottom line: Paul Rudd is gold and is only going to get better. His next movie is Our

Happy Belated Trailer Tuesday! Say Hi to Troll Hunter!

“Found footage” movies are all the rage in Hollywood. You can go back as far as The Blair Witch Project, but most recently we’ve seen Cloverfield, Quarantine, Paranormal Activity and Paranormal Activity 2, as well as The Last Exorcism and the upcoming Apollo 18. I love movies like this, so it’s no surprise to me our friends in Norway have become fond of the genre, so much that writer/director André Øvredal has passed up zombies, vampires, poltergeists and aliens for something

The Change-Up Trailer Made Me Spit Out the Precious

And by the precious, I mean my 16 ounce sugar-free Red Bull. Maybe you don’t like it, but it is precious…to…me. I digress. The Change-Up, sliding into theaters on August 5, 2011, looks like Freaky Friday got in a head-on collision with a porno movie, and for a guy like me, who loves Urban, this movie looks like pure win. Be forewarned though, the trailer below is of the redband variety, which means your boss might not appreciate words

Circle July 29, 2011 on your Calendar, Cowboys and Aliens is Going to Rock

Summer 2011 is going to be quite beefy, but between all the superheroes and the Autobots and Decepticons, the movie I’m most excited to see is Cowboys and Aliens, which hits theaters on July 29. How could this not be nothing but pure win? It stars Harrison Ford (Morning Glory), Daniel Craig (Quantum of Solace), Olivia Wilde (Tron: Legacy), Sam Rockwell (Conviction), Paul Dano (Knight and Day) and Adam Beach (Flags of Our Fathers), plus it’s directed by John Favreau,
