Flixist Awards 2012: The Pterodactyl

Trailer: Kid's Police

(Oh, Japan.) Based on the TV show of the same name, Kid's Police is a badass 70s-style cop movie with child actors in the lead. And that's all you need to know. The sheer joy and absurdity of the concept puts a goofy smile on my face. Kid'...

Pacific Rim trailer is better with Power Rangers music
