This is not going to be good. Without going in to the terrible theology behind all this, it looks like a souped up version of the same cheese that powered the original Left Behind. You can put as much paint as you want on something, but in the end, painting a Ford Pinto is not going to make it a good car. So don’t expect a new coat of paint on the Left Behind series to do anything for the film either.
But I found this trailer good for a little bit of fun this morning — although I never really outright laughed. I think Grimmace might better describe my reaction to this trailer.
Hey look, it’s Liam Neeson playing the grizzled action hero, who would have thought?
But seriously, this does look kind of good. Pluse the writer, Frank Scott, wrote one of my favorite films — Minority Report, so maybe there’s something good here.
The film arrives in theaters on September 19. Check out the trailer!
It’s sort of a cheesy media blitz promotion, but sometimes it’s a lot of fun. Recently Sir Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy interviewed each other, as did Sir Ian McKellan and Michael Fassbender. The results provided in this clip are pretty fun.
Lately, both Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan have been known for being funny and fun, and the word on the street is they are both great to work with and provide a really relaxed atmosphere on the sets they are on.
Edge of Tomorrow has been getting really great reviews so far — at least what few of them we’ve been getting. Sure, Tom Cruise is playing a reluctant hero in a futurestic Sci-Fi film, and you might think that would get old. But so far, I’ve just not gotten tire of it.
I liked Oblivion last year, but I think I’ll like this one a lot better even than that. The film is based on the novel, All You Need is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka and is directed by Doug Liman of The Bourne Identity fame (so how could this not be good, right?).
In addition to Tom Cruise, the film co-stars Emily Blunt, who did…Read The Rest
It should go without saying, but I should say it anyway, that if you haven’t seen X-Men: Days of Future Past, you’ll want to save this for later because there are SPOILERS!
That out of the way, I thought this was a pretty good run down of some of the easter eggs going on in X-Men: Days of Future Past, including some that I didn’t catch. But, although he titles it Every Easter Egg in X-Men: Days of Future Past, I would guess it’s not every one.
Take a look:
I’ve never heard of this franchise before, and I hear if you blinked back when it was a thing in the ‘90s, you might have missed it.
This film is an animated collaboration between Marvel and Disney. It’s a Marvel property and Disney owns Marvel so no big surprises there. Without knowing a thing about the comic, I think this looks like it could be a lot of fun. Obviously we only get to see one tiny little sliver of one tiny little aspect of this story, but it definitely feels like a Pixar sort of take on a Marvel property, and I am completely down with that.
You’ll have to excuse the titles and subtitles that are not in english as this is an international trailer, but this particular trailer is showing us some tings we haven’t yet seen and I’m loving the look of it. This looks like the film I want from the Wachowskis. I hope they don’t do to this franchise what they did to the Matrix franchise in the second and third films, but we won’t worry about that just yet. This looks fantastic.
Roger Ebert is easily the greatest film critic who has ever lived. The world of movie criticism would look a lot different if he had not been involved and he brought a special voice to that world.
This film explores Ebert’s life and you better believe I’ll in watching this soon when it comes out on July 4th.
JJ Abrams is looking to put one of us fans on the big screen, and would like to give us a tour of the set. That’s all cool and everything, and by entering you’re supporting charity (I do not know what all this organization supports and have not vetted so do your research and donate on your own morals and understanding), but let’s talk about this video.
The big deal is that it looks like he’s using a lot of practical effects and pracitals aliens and whatnot. This is good because if there’s a big complaint with George Lucas’ prequels, it’s that he went a little bit crazy with the CGI.
And of…Read The Rest
Andy Serkis has made quite a name for himself in the motion capture industry. It started, of course, with his motion capture work for Gollum. Back in those days, motion capture had to be in a much more controlled environment. Now he’s actually acting with other actors. It’s pretty crazy stuff.
The technology involved, the craft in filmmaking, the skill with which Serkis performs are all incredible and fascinating to me.
Check out the video.
