In the case of a long-awaited film, the release of the trailer gets people anxiously anticipating the release of the film.

Zoolander Tries to Stop the Killings of Beautiful People

December 22, 2015

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the fashion runways again, here comes Zoolander 2. Of course, neither Derek Zoolander nor his model buddy Hansel, played by Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson respectively, could have foretold what was coming their way.  Years after their successes as untouchable supermodels, they are suddenly old and lame, or as Derek would say it, "lamé." There's nothing worse in the world of fashion than being called dated or tired, and the two friends realize their fame is being usurped by All, the newest, hottest gender-fluidest “biggest supermodel in the whole world,” played with deft certainty by Benedict Cumberbatch, complete with full, red lips and long, brown hair. Perhaps it was he who inspired Love and Rockets when they sang, "I d... Continue Reading...

Point Break Remake Is Action Packed!

November 26, 2015

Some people might say that the action classic Point Break did not need to be remade. In fact, a lot of people would say that in their loudest voice using their most offended language. The original was, and still is, perfect. Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves were extraordinarily popular macho stars with tremendous box-office appeal. Their chemistry tied the whole film together. Gary Busey was perfect as the sidekick, and even The Red Hot Chili Pepper's Anthony Kiedis had a great bit part on the beach. Lori Petty had a break-out performance and four years later, she starred in the film Tank Girl, based on the popular British comic book. So why was the film remade, anyway?   Well, like lots of remakes of popular films, the producers felt that they could do it better the second time around... Continue Reading...

Dystopian Societies Are Not for Sissies

October 30, 2015

Someone once said that growing old isn't for sissies. Let me tell you, dystopian societies aren't either. Think about it. There are really mean villains who also just happen to be members of the ruling politburo who get their jollies by making teens and tweens perform very dangerous feats. Nobody likes a bully, except another bully, and the sequel to Maze Runners has hate-worthy bullies all over the place. Fortunately, dystopian societies seem to be populated by attractive young men and women who manage to find love amidst the turmoil of such tortures as the Scorch Trials.  The other nice thing is that you can attend the upcoming September 15th world debut of maze Runner: The Scorch Trials. Not only that, you can also go to the after-party, where luckily, you won't have to run through... Continue Reading...

Crimson Peak and the Haunted Mansion

October 30, 2015

It's rare that a director grants an interview to a journalist during an on-set visit. They're usually just too busy. Sometimes they're too involved in their project to come down to earth. Other times they're wary of being misquoted. Most often, the producers will run interference for the directors to make sure the interview stays on point. When they do grant an interview, it's a rare treat, just like attending a Hollywood premiere.  Director Guillermo del Toro recently gave it up for journalists on the Toronto set of his upcoming horror film Crimson Peak. He was more than willing to play tour guide through the Victorian mansion that he says he wanted to seem like "a living organism."  For all you organisms who are film fans, the world premiere of Crimson Peak will be held October...

The Dead Will Be Walking Again

October 30, 2015

If you're a fan of The Walking Dead, then you should have been at the San Diego Comic-Con. Executive producer Scott Gimble held a panel discussion with cast and crew members Gale Anne Hurd, Andrew Lincoln (Rick), Norman Reedus (Daryl), Lennie James (Morgan) and Melissa McBride (Carol) and numerous others. They spilled their guts regarding the Season 6 premiere and the upcoming season. The show's creator, Robert Kirkman, was planning to attend the panel, but he became sick, so to honor him, many of the crew wore shirts with his face on them.  The season debut is coming with a mega-bang. That episode alone will feature 654 zombies on-screen, which is more than have ever been on one episode of the hit show before. There will be a special premiere and after party a few days before the sho... Continue Reading...

Crimson Peak Will Creep You Out!

October 30, 2015

Don't confuse Guillermo del Toro with Benicio del Toro. Guillermo is from Mexico. Benicio is from Puerto Rico. Benicio is handsome. Guillermo is. . . uh. . . let's just say he's not handsome. Guillermo is a world-famous director. Benicio is known for his terrific acting. The only thing similar about them is the quality of their work and their del Toro surname.  Guillermo has a new film called Crimson Peak coming out this fall. It's a tense horror/thriller that should do good bank in the Halloween season. The story is pretty straightforward. A wanna-be writer (aren't all writers wanna-be's?) who is coping with a recent family tragedy is torn between the temptation of a mysterious outsider and her love for her childhood friend. In an attempt to get away from the ghosts of her past, she ... Continue Reading...
