Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Remember Me,' 'Green Zone' & More

Remember Me - Robert Pattinson
As I sit here preparing this column, the Oscars have not aired yet, but I must admit there’s not a high likelihood that I will be watching them when they come on. Most years I’ll watch a few minutes here or there, if I’m interested to see who wins an award in real time.

I care about the winners of various awards, just not enough to suffer through the tedium. I’m sure I’ll have some feedback for next week’s column though on the winners and loser...

Two weeks ago, nerds, geeks, and those "just going to San Diego for the weekend to check out the beaches" poured into Comic-Con 2008 in all their "Babylon 5"-clad glory.

Comic-Con also holds a tremendous amount of power nowadays. Nervous directors unveil scenes from their latest superhero big-screen opus to the attendees, well-aware that a lukewarm response could spe...
