Coming Attraction:: Transformers: Dark of the Moon

December 12, 2010

Click here to watch the teaser trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Here is the premise, according to IMDb’s Transformers page:

The Autobots learn of a Cybertronian spacecraft hidden on the Moon, and race against the Decepticons to reach it and learn its secrets, which could turn the tide in the Transformers’ final battle.

Looks like it’s gonna be another standard robot action movie. Michael Bay returned as director. Ehren Kruger (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Scream 3) wrote the screenplay. Shia LaBeouf returns as Sam Witwicky. Megan Fox (the hottie from the first two Transformers movies) was fired shortly before filming started. John Malkovich and Frances McDormand appear to have bit parts. I’m having a hard time imagining why those two would agree to be in a movie like this. Must be a big paycheck or some irony factor. Maybe both.

Coming Attraction: Winnie the Pooh (2011)

November 20, 2010

Thirty-five years after making its last Pooh film, Walt Disney Animation Studios is returning to the Hundred Acre Wood. For the first time since 1976, Disney will be using original A. A. Milne stories as the basis for a Winnie the Pooh film. Stephen J. Anderson (Meet the Robinsons) and Don Hall (writer of The Princess and the Frog) directed the film and IMDb lists its release date as July 15, 2011.

Craig Ferguson (The Late Late Show) voices Owl, Jim Cummings (accomplished voice actor) voices Pooh and Tigger, and Tom Kenny (Sponge Bob Square Pants) voices Rabbit.

It appears as though the story revolves around a hunt for a new tail for Eeyore. I love that the backgrounds look hand-painted, but I can’t say that I care for the digitally-sanitized look of the characters in the trailer.

Coming Attraction: Inception

December 29, 2009

Click here to watch the trailer for Inception

Inception‘s trailer is tantalizingly mysterious. No plot is revealed, but it indicates that the movie has something to do with crimes that take place in a supernatural world where strange ideas come magically to fruition.

But the trailer doesn’t have the look and feel of a magical supernatural movie. In most of the trailer, it looks like a gritty crime/drama; and then there are a few shots of astonishing moments, like a city folding upon itself, or people running up the sides of walls.

The Top Five Horror Films of the Decade

December 12, 2009

As the year 2009 wraps up, I thought I would submit another list about this decade of movies. This list of great horror films will be a shorter, more in-depth list than my last list. So without further ado, here is my list of the top horror films of the last decade.

1. Let the Right One In

Apparently, being a vampire isn’t cool or sexy, at least according to Tomas Alfredson’s Swedish horror/drama Let The Right One In. Alfredson reinvents vampires as miserable souls, and the story of a young boy and the girl/vampire next door is coldly grim instead of enchantingly romantic. Roger Ebert gave Let the Right One In 4 stars and it placed 203 on imdb’s Top 250.
