Cooties Trailer

First trailer for Cooties starring Elijah Wood and zombie fourth graders


Circle, circle, dot, dot...
May 21
I don't think I've ever talked about how much I love Elijah Wood's career. He's willing to take chances on the weirdest, and most far out projects. He doesn't always succeed, but he seems like the type of actor that's game fo... read
Pixels Trailer

Newest trailer for Pixels is gamey


Sort of like how deer meat tastes
May 19
I have a hard time figuring out exactly who Pixels is made for. Is it for the man children that Adam Sandler has spent his entire career trying to sell to, or is it for folks who'd recognize videogames in general? In the same... read

Jack Black and Nacho Libre director reuniting for Micronations


Remember when Jack Black was relevant?
May 18
I sort of see Nacho Libre as the beginning of a slow slide for Jack Black's super stardom. The guy use to be everywhere, but his schtick got old pretty fast and now he just pops up in cameos and weird dramadies (tho... read

Is Walley World really worth it?
If you're of a certain age than National Lampoon's Vacation is pretty much sacred comedy territory. A movie that you fondly remember watching repeatedly on VHS or whatever random station it popped up on, followed, of cou... read feature

Identity crisis
Boy Meets Girl is an antique magic mirror. The kind of thing you'd see in a movie. In an old, cobweb-filled antique shop, the camera slowly pans up an old, cracked and unpolished mirror. It's not really much to look at, ... read feature

Ted 2 Red Band trailer proves curse words make things funnier


Apr 27
The first trailer for Ted 2 was funny and quite promising, but you can't really get the flavor for a McFarlane comedy without at least five actual curse words being used. Thank goodness for red band trailers. In the seco... read
Barely Lethal Trailer

First trailer for Barely Lethal sure is lethal


Apr 27
I'm immediately interested whenever A24 picks up a film. They've done such a good job of picking out the more interesting and experimental properties like Ex Machina, Spring Breakers, Obvious Child, and so on. Their latest fi... read
Always look on the bright side
Even though Monty Python ended their run in the 1980s, they're still curtural icons. Even for people like me, born after their disbanding, films like Monty Python and the Holy Grain (though less their Flying Circus roots... read feature

Sorry folks, park's closed. Moose out front shoulda told ya.
Apr 15

Ant-Man

Newest Ant-Man trailer is a great do-over


Apr 13
Remember how badly that first Ant-Man trailer was received? Mismanaged tone, mismanaged editing, and the whole thing was all over the place. This trailer, which is now the "first" trailer, is essentially a big mulligan and i... read

First trailer for Masterminds lets you know the name is ironic


Now I'm going to have Sabotage stuck in my head all day
Mar 31
Masterminds looks like one of those based-on-a-true-story movies where they basically said that a bank robbery happened once so that means that the film is based on it. It also looks pretty funny, if unoriginal. Great c... read
Flaccid
The worst criticism a film can get is "harmless." When a film is just "harmless," it's stale, voiceless, and generally fails to make a lasting impression. A harmless film exists, takes 90-100 minutes of your life, and then yo... read feature
