Theatrical Releases: Men In Black 3 & Moonrise Kingdom

CHERNOBYL DIARIES || Found-footage horror films are starting to wear me out. If used properly, like Paranormal Activity, they can be quite intriguing, but I am beyond exhausted by the latest in the genre, Chernobyl Diaries. From the trailer alone, I am annoyed by the lack of acting and lack of originality as a group of American tourists get stranded in the site of … Read More Theatrical Releases: Men In Black 3 & Moonrise Kingdom

New Trailer: The Apparition – Official Trailer #1

THE APPARITION / Truth be told, horror films never get me excited. There are definitely great horror films out there, but most of them are usually along the lines of something done before. The Apparition, though full of cliche horror conventions, has a freshness about it. The premise is as such: ghosts only exist if you actually believe in them. As a test, a … Read More New Trailer: The Apparition – Official Trailer #1

New Trailer: The Great Gatsby – Official Trailer #1

THE GREAT GATSBY / From director Baz Luhrman (“Romeo + Juliet”, “Moulin Rouge”, “Australia”) comes a take on an older story, The Great Gatsby. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan, as well as Tobey MacGuire, you can expect this film to make some waves come Oscar season. If you’ve seen Luhrman’s previous works, you already know his kitsch for style and poise, so seeing … Read More New Trailer: The Great Gatsby – Official Trailer #1

MAY 22ND, 2012 The biggest release this week is The Woman In Black. Produced by the legendary Hammer Film Productions and starring the Harry Potter star himself, Daniel Radcliffe, The Woman In Black is a period piece horror story based on the Susan Hill book of the same title.

New Trailer: Skyfall – Official Trailer #1

SKYFALL / Punchy and erotic, the newest 007 trailer gives very little away while remaining completely action-packed and visually stunning. Though probably not as theatrically sound as last year’s Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Skyfall will still pack a heavy punch, I am sure of it. With Daniel Craig continuing his stellar role as James Bond, after knocking out his previous dramatic thriller role in … Read More New Trailer: Skyfall – Official Trailer #1

New Trailer: The Master – Official Teaser Trailer #1

THE MASTER / Guess who’s back? Both Joaquin Pheonix and Paul Thomas Anderson return to the big screen with a very vague, yet stylishly charming drama. In his first feature film since the Academy Award winning, There Will Be Blood, Anderson sets to direct Pheonix in his first film since dropping off the deep end in I’m Still Here. With both having a lot … Read More New Trailer: The Master – Official Teaser Trailer #1

New Trailer: Anchorman: The Legend Continues – Official Teaser #1

ANCHORMAN: THE LEGEND CONTINUES / With all the fans that the original Anchorman has amassed, it is no surprise that everyone is buzzing about the next installment coming out next year. It’s odd to think that this film doesn’t even get released until next year, yet we’ve already received a promotional poster and a teaser trailer, which opened up in front of last week’s … Read More New Trailer: Anchorman: The Legend Continues – Official Teaser #1

Theatrical Releases: Battleship & The Dictator

BATTLESHIP || Having seen most of Battleship already, I can tell you I am not interested in seeing it. For starters, Peter Berg is not a director I care to support. Many will compare Battleship to Transformers, but I cannot endorse that, as I feel Battleship is more or less ripping off Transformers with the same sound effects, visual effects, and using their Hasbro … Read More Theatrical Releases: Battleship & The Dictator

New Trailer: Hit And Run – Official Trailer #1

HIT AND RUN / Though not completely sold on this film quite yet, Hit And Run is written, directed, and starring Dax Shephard along with his real life wife, the adorable Kristen Bell.
