About
Nick Valdez likes chick flicks, kid flicks, dick flicks, and skin flicks. Also musicals (Glee!). One time, he wrote a 15 page thesis on the training montage's effect on the hero's journey in Rocky. His favorite film is Zoolander or Machete. If he could mix the two and create Zoochete, he would in a heartbeat. One day he wishes to travel across the United States "David Banner" style while dragging around a player piano or that orangutan from Every Which Way But Loose.

First teaser trailer for Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

While I've never been drawn to the Night at the Museum series myself, I know a lot of people who enjoy them. They're a harmless set of films where Robin Williams gets to dress as a convincing Teddy Roosevelt, and there are a...   more

Comic-Con trailer for Interstellar

With Matthew McConaughey's recent upswing, I've been more inclined to pay attention to his projects. One such project is Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. A science fiction film about wormholes and future corn, who knows wha...   more

First trailer for Horns, starring Daniel Radcliffe

Daniel Radcliffe's career has been in a bit of a flux in his post-Potter days. In what seemingly seems like Radcliffe searching for that one role that'll truly showcase his talents, he's been in several offbeat projects that...   more

See Into the Storm early and free

I wasn't paying much attention to Into the Storm until one of the trailers showed off a fire tornado. It's a very real, very scary thing that the film is going to use for our amusement. But whatever, I'm sure it's going to be...   more

First official trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

I love how they're claiming The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is "The Defining Chapter" in the story since the book itself is only a fraction of all of this. In what is most likely the most bloated title of the serie...   more

Legendary rebooting King Kong with 'Skull Island' in 2016

When Legendary Pictures brought back Godzilla, one of my first thoughts was "Where the hell is King Kong?" Now I finally have an answer. Although King Kong took a shot at a reboot a few years back with Peter Jackson, it focus...   more

Box Office Numbers: You Love Lucy

It looks like I bet on the wrong horse. In a neat turn of events, audiences flocked more toward the weird outsider film, Lucy, than the sweating mass of manmeat, Hercules. I'd like to take this time to thank America for being...   more

Comic-Con trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

I'm loving the advertising campaign for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 so far. Continuing on with the minimalist teasers is the Comic-Con trailer which contains the first actual footage from the film. Not much is said...   more

Full trailer for Nightcrawler, starring Jake Gyllenhaal

Remember that very brief, but very awesome teaser for Nightcrawler the other day? It had a twisted tone, and sickly looking Gyllenhaal all to great effect. Now that we have the full trailer for the film, I'm still very excit...   more

First Red Band trailer for Hot Tub Time Machine 2

Hot Tub Time Machine is an acquired taste. By that I mean it's not particularly funny or interesting, yet folks seem attached to it anyhow. Now that John Cusack has dropped out (I guess once he realized the film really isn't...   more
