So here is the big, fat, new trailer for "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" and it looks, expectedly, pretty darn cool. I'm about as far in the tank for Tolkien and Peter Jackson as you can get so I will see this movie and I will love this movie. That said, I understand the letdown some people ... [More]

I'm really willing to give this move the benefit of the doubt, mostly because I thought "Tangled" was really cute and "Frozen" seems to be, at the very least, an ideological sequel. That said, I am also the father of a six-year-old girl and it's tough to bite back the cynicism when Disney trots out ... [More]

Sometimes if you put enough awesome in one place you’re pretty much guaranteed something great will happen. This is why I am high on “The Counselor” and its fantastic trailer. It’s directed by Ridley Scott working with a screenplay written by Cormac McCarthy (translation: it... [More]

So we have a new "Hunger Games: Catching Fire" trailer and while there's not a whole lot more here than was in the teaser trailer that came out in April. Still we get some glimpses of some actual Hunger Gaming which is cool; along with some ominous Woody Harrellson action, of which I am al... [More]

Foreign-language films get remade all the time by American studios hungry for new ideas. In fact, when I saw the moderately-enjoyable, high-concept French-Canadian movie “Starbuck” (you can read my review here) earlier this year I kind of had a feeling it was only a matter of time before... [More]

I really liked the first “Machete” mostly because I am a sucker for ridiculous action flicks and movies that are self-referential.  You can say what you want about Robert Rodriguez but you can’t deny that the guy isn’t afraid to abandon logic or the simple laws of physic... [More]

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have become a formidable comedy duo over the years, but they rise to a whole new level when paired with director Edgar Wright. Their two other collaborations (“Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz”) are exercises in genre-specific brilliance mixed with a... [More]

Hollywood loves to get in its own way. It seems almost every year we get two movies built around strikingly similar subjects, be they volcanos, asteroids or Truman Capote. This year its terrorist attacks on the White House. Fun! The first, “Olympus Has Fallen” came and went with little... [More]

There have been a couple of early teaser trailers for “Man of Steel” but this is the first one to suggest that the movie might actually be awesome. The very “meh” “Superman Returns” taught me to temper my expectations when it comes to Superman movies, but this tr... [More]

I went into “The Hunger Games” with a fair amount of skepticism.  I braced myself for another tween-fiction-based “Twilight” rip-off but lo and behold it turned out to be a pretty damn good movie; sorta like “The Running Man,” but for kids! But what made the... [More]
