Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies - 'Blue Valentine' & 'Another Year'

December 27th, 2010 10:00am EST
Blue Valentine
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and received some excellent presents. The gift I received that I’m the most excited about, is a Blu-ray player. I can’t wait to see some awesome HD movies with it like “Kick Ass,” “Inception,” and “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.”

As part of yearly tradition, my family watched our good old VHS copy of “A Christmas Story.” It amazes me how this film has become so ingrained in our popular culture, and that it’s shown for 24 hours straight on TNT. Often I can’t believe that I can watch it every year without tiring of it, but I tend to keep a sentimen...

The Hollywood actress is said to be in negotiations to re-team with her Mamma Mia! director Phyllida Lloyd for the 1982-set film, which will show Thatcher in the run-up to the Falklands War.

Moulin Rouge! actor Jim Broadbent has reportedly been lined up to play the former British leader's husband, Denis, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Thatcher led Britain for 11 years between 1979 and 1990. Her career famously waned prior to the conflict in the Falklands but she r...

Golden Globes Ceremony May Be Cancelled But We Still Have Our Predictions

January 8th, 2008 3:17pm EST
Juno
The writers' strike has officially infiltrated awards season. The Golden Globes have been reduced to a lackluster news conference. That means no best and worst dressed list. No boozy celebrities making a fool of themselves. All that remains is an hour-long meeting at the Beverly Hilton Hotel with angry WGA picketers surrounding the premises.

So, until the Hollywood powers-that-be finally buckle down and give the writers what they want and deserve, we here at Starpulse are going to call the winners and losers. We looked at reviews, other expert predictions, viewer attitudes and who we ...

February 11th, 2007 9:00pm EST

Hot Fuzz is the action-packed new comedy from the makers of the hit movie Shaun of the Dead. With the same razor-sharp combination of humor and attention to detail they used to breathe new life into the undead, Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright have set their sights on action movies for their next uniquely funny vision.

Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) is the finest cop London has to offer, with an arrest record 400% higher than any other officer on the force. He's so good, he makes everyone else look bad. As a result, Angel's superiors send him to a place where his talents won't be quite so emba...
