Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies - 'Snow White and the Huntsman,' 'Piranha 3DD,' & 'Battlefield America'

May 29th, 2012 1:00pm EDT
Snow White and the Huntsman
Last week’s “Men in Black III” was fairly average. It’s nothing fantastic, but certainly more memorable than 2002’s “Men in Black II.” Following some bizarre real life shenanigans, the wacked out Rip Torn is written out of the story and thankfully the talking pug is nowhere to be found. With stupid dialogue and gimmicky 3D, the most entertaining moments come from the film’s cast. I know what you’re thinking, and no, I’m not talking about Will Smith.

Jemaine Clement is a hilarious snarling villain, Josh Brolin plays a superb young Tommy Lee Jones, and Michael Stuhlbarg charms as an extrater...

We Can Think Of Two Good Reasons To Watch 'Piranha 3DD' Trailer (Video)

October 19th, 2011 1:22pm EDT
DavidHasselhoffPiranha3DDGrab300
Finally, a sequel we can really sink our teeth into! After the bloody good camp fun of Alexandre Aja's "Piranha 3D" last year, someone decided two "D"s are better than one, and boy were they right. The Weinstein Company is pulling out all the stops to provide bigger fish, bigger laughs, bigger "stars," and a larger amount of acting talent from the female participants. It's all good clean fun for "Piranha 3DD," and we have the trailer to prove it.

At last night's Scream Awards on Spike, a 30-second teaser aired, fully stacked with a bevy of women ready to get wet, wild and wounded with th...

Q&A: 'InSight' Director Richard Gabai

October 15th, 2011 11:00am EDT
InSight
For every movie that you hear about, there's probably at least a dozen that you don't. It shouldn't surprise you that some of those flicks that don't get a big release or promo push are really, really good. Maybe even better than those big blockbusters that do get all the attention.

I recently spoke with Richard Gabai, director of InSight. The flick stars Natalie Zea (of Justified fame) as an ER nurse who begins experiencing the memories of a young stabbing victim whose life she tries to save. She partners with the detective working the case (Sean Patrick Flanery of Boondock Saints) t...

'Insight' Cast Recalls Haunted Set

August 4th, 2011 8:30pm EDT
Christopher Lloyd
The cast and crew of new thriller Insight were left spooked during night shoots while filming at an abandoned hospital, which has been listed as one of the most haunted sites in Los Angeles.

Linda Vista Community Hospital in Boyle Heights, where the pilot for E.R. was shot, has been shuttered for 20 years - following a string of lawsuits connected to the place's unexpectedly high death rates.

It has been the site of several televised paranormal investigations and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.

And Insight director Richard Gabai admits it was a very spo...

Radical Retro Movie Review: 'Back To The Future Part III' On 20th Anniversary

May 25th, 2010 2:00pm EDT
BTTF III
The “Back to the Future” series captures our hearts because it successfully blends science fiction, action, adventure, and comedy to show us teenager Marty McFly’s (Michael J. Fox) travels through time with his pal Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd). These films follow a logical progression of events that transitions smoothly from one to another, but what’s interesting is that thematically they also maintain a forward progression.

“Back to the Future” establishes the sense of awe at the concept of time travel. In this chapter Marty is catapulted into the past, where he nearly prevents his ow...

The Five Most Underrated & Overrated Sports Movies

April 25th, 2008 8:36am EDT
Rocky III
Sports movies are often beloved but rarely good. It's hard to say why it is so difficult to make a great sports movie. It could be that there is far more drama in actually following sports than there is in watching a dramatized version on film. It could also be that it is so hard to make a sports movie that doesn't seem entirely unrealistic yet is filled with the appropriate amount of drama. Whatever the case, it's about as hard to make a great sports movie as it is to hit a Jake Peavy fastball.

Despite this, it seems more and more sports films are made each year, and even as the qu...

One week later, I'm still walking in circles around my house: pinching myself, reading newspaper articles, Tivoing ESPN, and gazing up at pictures of David Tyree. I just can't believe it. The New York Giants, my team, my sloppy, win ugly, stab me in the heart again and again until I'm either screaming or crying or laughing like a crazy person Giants have done the impossible-- they defeated the big, bad, *perfect* New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.

It's like something out of a movie. Inspirational. Against all odds. Team victory. In my mind, it's already the greatest sports movi...

Some football films have rousing, rough-and-tumble-scream-at-the-TV football action. This is the "Football Factor." They're just like watching a game with two great defenses. Others have an interesting football story. This is the "Heart Factor." Often there are a lot of both factors in each movie. Her...
