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?

Movie Review: Pitch Perfect Another Comedy with Strong, Funny and Unapologetic Women

GRADE: B On the surface, Pitch Perfect looks like Glee: The Movie, or, more generically, another low-budget, low-IQ teenage-driven comedy most assuredly packed with booze, sex and enough innuendo and euphemisms its bloated PG-13 rating can hold. At least that’s what my mind first thought when I saw the synopsis and the poster (which, ironically, tends to look like the poster for 2011’s Bridesmaids). However, after watching the trailer, while still skeptical, I had high hopes. Maybe, just maybe, Pitch

Full Length Paranormal Activity 4 Trailer is Tobylicious

We are a few days away from the start of the wonderful month of October and that means Paranormal Activity 4, the newest installment in the popular (and creepy as hell) Paranormal Activity franchise, is only a few weeks away! That’s right, on October 19th, Toby is back and ready to haunt a new cubbyhole, and based on the newest trailer below, directors Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost (the duo behind Paranormal Activity 3 and Catfish), have ratcheted the scares

Sinister Red Band Trailer Makes My Skin Crawl

It’s that time of year where we get a plethora of pre-Halloween scary flicks, most of which turn out to be not-so-scary and oh-so-lame. Me? I love scary movies. I’m not sure why, since I close my eyes and wet my pants, automatically de-masculating myself. However, with that said, there are three on my radar that have the potential to make my buttcheeks the diamond-producing capital of the civilized world. First up, sliding into theaters on October 5th is V/H/S,

The Hobbit Trailer is 100 Percent Perfection, Precious!

Yes, I hate the fact The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is going to be in 3D, and yes, if you must know, the first teaser trailer didn’t really get my blood pumping. I know it’s Peter Jackson and I know it’s a return to Middle Earth, so how could it not be anything short of stellar, right? Still, it felt Star Wars prequel-esque to me, especially with all the goofy plastic-faced dwarves tossing plates and having a midget Mordor ho-down

RoboCop Reboot Photo & Poster Uncover Terrible 1987 Memories

The year was 1987 and I had become my dad’s little movie buddy. We saw Aliens, Stand by Me, Cobra and Platoon, to name a few – but the film that traumautized me more than anything was Paul Verhoven’s RoboCop. The movie is hokey and cheesy and full of all kinds of bad 80s action, but the scene at the beginning of the movie, in the abandoned warehouse, where Murphy (Peter Weller) is tortured and shot, was shockingly real and
