I liked Divergent well enough, but it is certainly not without its criticisms, which makes this Honest Trailer so delicious and delightful. And I loved the parts cutting to Jon Bailey in the studio talking about how they had already done this one. Great stuff.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes — ReviewDawn of the Planet of the Apes is the latest in the reboot of the Apes franchise. I really love it for a few reasons. But first, newsflash: I’m new to the franchise. I know, I know. This series of films is a cult classic, and you
Earth to Echo — ReviewThe comparisons of Earth to Echo are all but inevitable. This story, like E.T., involves pre-adolescents who think they are much too old for their own good, parents with little to no clue what’s going on in their children’s lives
Transformers: Age of Extinction — ReviewThis movie exists for one reason: you people keep seeing these awful things. And I think I know why too. Though no one will admit to liking Michael Bay or the Transformers films, people turn up in droves. To a very small extent

What a wide range of opinions there are on this episode! On the one end of the spectrum you’ve got a 5 star review, and on the other end you’ve got 1/2 star review. Then you’ve got one of the guys who thinks the truth probably lies somewhere just shy of the middle, and another guy who thinks it may lie a bit above the middle. This obviously makes for some interested discussion as you would expect. Also on the docket, ‘Star Wars VII’ supposed plot details, the ‘Kite’ trailer starring Samuel L. Jackson, the trailer for the ‘12 Monkeys’ TV series, some details about ‘Heroes Reborn’, and Kevin Feige speaking well of ‘D.C. Comics’.
Kevin Feige Proves His Classiness in Speaking of D.C.
While Kevin Feige has enough to talk about when it comes to the forthcoming “Guardians Of The Galaxy,” it seems much of his press time of late has been spent explaining what the heck has been going on with “Ant-Man.” And then over his shoulder are his rivals at D.C. Comics who coming hard in 2016 with “Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice.” But Feige feels no ill toward his fellow purveyors of…
Roberto Orci on ‘Star Trek 13’
Well, fans are a little bit nutty, so I have got to be careful with what I say, but I can tell you that it definitely takes place in [deep] space. They’re finally on their five year mission and that hasn’t been the case in any of the previous movies. The first two movies are set up to where the original series started. Now when you watch this movie, hopefully, you will see that Kirk, Spock…
Suposed ‘Star Wars VII’ Plot Details
I’m going to keep this vague. I have no interest in spoiling Star Wars Episode VII, although I’m sure some people will find any information about the film’s plot to be spoilery. If you’re a spoilerphobe or want to go into Star Wars Episode VII totally, completely clean, stop reading now. If you want to know what, on a very basic and general level, is the premise of Star Wars Episode VII, read…
‘Horns’ Trailer — The fate of Daniel Radcliffe
If anyone was wondering whether Radcliffe could do anything with his life and career after Harry Potter, I think we’re seeing our answer. I mean of course there was that whole Equus thing and stuff. But now we get to see him in a film that doesn’t look like it’s going to be too great. Well, when I say “we” I’m not sure that “I” will see him in it.
Spoiler Alert! The Idiot’s Guy to SPOILERS!
Spoilers is something we who like movies and books and things think about almost as part of our thought processes. Most of us draw different lines about how much is a spoiler, what the etiquette is, etc. But it’s a fascinating conversation. We all draw a line somewhere that when someone spoils something, they’re just being a jerk. But then, maybe you’re one of those who spoils stuff for other…
‘Big Hero 6’ Full Trailer
So it’s here — the full trailer for Big Hero 6. I don’t have a lot to say about this film, but I know everyone is interested in this upcoming collaboration between Marvel and Disney Animation. It’s intriguing, even if it’s based on a relatively unknown property. This trailer definitely makes it looks quirky and probably pretty funny.
Look for the film in theaters on November 7.
A Few Details About ‘Heroes Reborn’
Despite the reboot premiering sometime next year according to plan, Kring was still pretty vague on details. “It takes place in a post-season 4 universe,” he said. “So it will tie into some of the ideas that were left dangling.”
And yet, it’ll also be treading new ground, through the introduction of an almost entirely new cast. Kring explained that they wanted to bring back a few of the…
Two ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ TV Spots — “Nothing goes over my head… I would catch it”
Are you guys excited enough yet for Guardians of the Galaxy? Well if you are not, let me help — although I don’t know why you wouldn’t be ecstatic about this film yet. It’s a Marvel film, it’s based on a comic book series, it features a talking (and sarcastic) raccoon, a walking tree, a green alien, an alien who doesn’t understand metaphors, and Chris Pratt. Every single thing we’ve seen about…
