Review: Frequencies

I'll be honest here. When Frequencies was first pitched to me, I didn't know if it could work. It's being billed as a romance with a slight tinge of science fiction, and to be completely honest, those films usually don't turn...

Rumor: Star Wars: Episode VII titled The Ancient Fear

Have to slap this one with a rumor, but Ain't It Cool is usually pretty solid when it comes to leaks so we're leaning towards the truth. They've been informed twice now that the current working title for Star Wars: Episode VI...

Johnny Depp as a computer mind should be pretty interesting, right? I'm thinking so. While the concept behind Transcendence isn't crazy original its execution sounds like it will be. I'm very interested in it, especially...

New Dawn of the Planet of the Apes images not monkeying around

Second trailer for the Wachowski's Jupiter Ascending

The first trailer for the Wachowski's Jupiter Ascending left a weird impression on me. It looked good, sounded good, but ultimately seemed hollow. It just felt like something was missing within all of the glitz and glamour o...

New 'Earth to Echo' trailer features more found-footage aliens

In a trailer that channels Super-8, ET, and a little bit of Explorers, Earth to Echo seems like any other kid-friendly romp through extraterrestrial discovery. Throw in a healthy dose of "found-footage" style filmm...

The Giver lands its first trailer and it's kind of creepy photo
The Giver lands its first trailer and it's kind of creepy
by Matthew Razak

I was insanely concerned for The Giver. A lot of the news about it seems to lead to the conclusion that they're turning it into a young adult romance that you'd find on the CW when it deserves so much more than that. This new trailer actually assuages some of those fears as its really kind of creepy and actually focuses on the themes of the book while still showing off its sci-fi leanings. Really, it looks a lot more sci-fi than the book was, but we're going to let that slide as long as the focus remains on the characters.

Plus, the cast is just too good to doubt. The Giver could easily be one of the best films of the year if they actually pull it off correctly, and we've waited so long for this adaptation that they better do exactly that. I'm just glad to come out of this trailer without my hopes crushed.
