Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Tron: Legacy,' 'Yogi Bear,' & More

December 13th, 2010 9:29am EST
Tron Legacy
Last Thursday I saw “I Love You Philip Morris” starring Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor. This film, which is written and directed by Glenn Ficarra and Jon Requa, the team behind “Bad Santa,” advertises itself as a funny movie; however it leans more dramatic than expected. Most of the hilarious lines are spoiled by the trailer, so when you get a chance to see the whole product, you’ll find yourself a bit let down.

Both Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor are incredibly convincing as a gay couple from the manner of their speaking down to the body language that they use. Their story is one that pull...

Justin Timberlake is set to mount a huge advertising campaign to convince Academy Awards bosses he is worthy of an Oscar nomination next year for his role in The Social Network, according to reports.

And the star has won the backing of executives at the movie's studio Sony, who will pay for a huge campaign in the Hollywood press to help l...

Camilla Belle showed up to the Freedom Awards in Los Angeles yesterday looking pretty in a sparkly beige blouse and black skirt. She paired her look with cat eye-like makeup (see big pic below).

Sienna Miller has paid tribute to her "Factory Girl" director George Hickenlooper, praising the moviemaker for making her feel so "loved" and "appreciated" on a film set.

Dinner for Schmucks
Anytime you’ve got Steve Carell and Paul Rudd sitting around a table breaking bread, it’s going to be a unique and hilarious dining experience. At least that's what audiences will be counting on when they sit down to watch the comedy “Dinner for Schmucks.” The film, which opens Friday, July 30, stars Rudd as an executive, who brings Carell’s character to his boss’s monthly dinner party for idiots.

'The Sixth Sense' Tops Movie Twists Poll

The stunning twist at the end of creepy classic The Sixth Sense has been voted the most shocking movie moment of all time.

The jaw-dropping scene in which Bruce Willis' character learns the truth about his existence has topped a survey of the greatest ever film twists. It beat a scene from Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 horror Psycho - when Norman Bates reveals the real identity of his murderous mother - into second place.

Kevin Spacey's unmasking at the close of crime thriller The Usual Suspects is in third, while the revelation about Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back ...

At some point this week I hope to catch the wacky comedy "The Men Who Stare at Goats." While I have read some bad reviews of the film, I believe my tendency to disagree with the mainstream, could be a wild card for my own appraisal of the movie.

I'm having difficulty believing the collection of George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges could contribute to a horrific film considering I how much appreciate their abilities on screen.

Sadly Boondock Saints II was an utter disappointment. While it had occasional bright moments, the film was marred by a number of problems.

Largely referential to the first film, it felt at many moments as if should be parodying itself, but it sadly wasn't. The overarching story tried to be overly complex in the web of manipulation it sought to weave.

Special Agent Eunice Bloom (Julie Benz) was a terrible replacement for Agent Smecker (Willem Dafoe), embodying every annoying Southern stereotype.

My biggest criticism of the film was that it was just too wacky; it had too many o...

Our Favorite Movie Cameos

Our Favorite Movie Cameos
There are a lot of modern movies that love to give little winks at the audience, and one of the easiest ways to do that is through the use of cameo appearances. A cameo is when a well known celebrity or important person shows up for a brief appearance in a movie. It can be a non-speaking random role, or perhaps a whole scene that steals the show. Whatever the case may be, oftentimes in a film the cameo ends up being the most memorable part of the whole movie. Take "Zombieland" for example, out in theaters now, but there's no spoilers here. Just go see the film and you'll see. Here's a look ...

'The Men Who Stare At Goats' Trailer Released, Looks Bizarrely Awesome

The Men Who Stare at Goats trailer came out recently, and I've got to say this should certainly be on the radar for anyone that would enjoy a bizarre (albeit true!) romp with Ewan McGregor, George Clooney, Kevin Spacey, and Jeff Bridges. Trailer after the break!

Best Week Ever clued me in on the existence when they first listed it on their 15 Movies To Be Excited About in 2009 and while they may be a bit worried about the lack of goats in the trailer, consider this writer sold.

This Week's Movie Buzz: See It, Rent It, Or Skip It?

Last Tuesday I had the opportunity to catch "Dead Snow" on Demand, and it was everything I hoped it would be. To enjoy the film though you truly need to suspend your disbelief, because if Nazi zombies are not enough, there are tons of really ridiculous, impossible events that occur.

This self-aware horror film makes many hilarious references both directly and indirectly to other movies of the genre. Characters are incredibly cliché and the dialogue is woefully written, but it is an action packed gore-fest featuring some of the most delightfully brutal horror movie deaths.

Transformers 2
I got the chance to see "Moon," this past weekend and I really enjoyed it. Sam Rockwell's interaction between the cloned versions of himself was brilliant, and Kevin Spacey was entertaining as the lunar station's computer.

The movie's effects were rock solid and the music was great. My only real complaints were its slow pace, and that I felt the reasons why he was being cloned weren't adequately explained.

This week we have the arrival of another highly anticipated summer blockbuster: "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." I will be seeing it tonight, and I'm anxious to see how ...

'Moon' Brings Philosophical Questions To Movie-Watchers

June 12th, 2009 3:58pm EDT
Moon
Amid the summer movie madness - heavy on special effects and light on storytelling - Moon is ready to offer audience members a healthy dose of reality. But there's one catch: Moon is a science-fiction flick, which makes that previous statement a bit of an oxymoron.

Director Duncan Jones, son of music icon David Bowie and self-described sci-fi geek, set out to create a sort of throwback to earlier sci-fi films like Blade Runner and Outlander, which didn't revolve around mystifying movie-goers with scene after scene of gaudy special effects.

"There are unquestionably less of those kind ...

The subject of space is a difficult one in terms of selecting films. Qualifying elements are somewhat subjective. Does the film have to take place in space? Must it include aliens? Does a mere reference to space, or different planets, make it a "space" film? In short, is it merely a subgenre of science fiction? Space and science fiction, while not mutually exclusive, can occur without the other.

In celebration of the release of one of the newest and most promising space films, Moon, check out a brief list of our favorite space films. What you will find below is a mix of films t...

Starpulse's Explosive Summer Movie Preview

Star Trek
Since the dawn of the American cinematic blockbuster in the late 1970s and early 1980s, moviegoers have eagerly waited for May - the unofficial beginning of summertime. This summer is no different. Films, and most popular media, are social mirrors, and this summer season supports that. The large box office contenders all deal with very similar themes: escapism and the support of the lone, outlaw hero figure (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, Up, Transformers 2, Public Enemies, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, G.I.

Similar Story Smackdown: Which Hollywood Flicks Came Out On Top?

So, have you seen this year's comedy about an overweight, overzealous, loser-y mall cop who takes his job way too seriously and is hopelessly in love with a fellow shopping center employee? If you're not sure whether I'm referring to January's hit Paul Blart: Mall Cop or the newest Seth Rogen comedy Observe and Report (in theaters now), don't be too hard on yourself: Both flicks have eerily similar plotlines.

Kate Winslet is one of the most respected actresses of modern day, and she is also remarkable in her excellent list of film roles from start to finish. There were very few movies that could even be considered 'bad' on her resume, and even the less successful ones garnered praise for her performance alone. Beautiful, intelligent, picky, and somewhat of an indie film darling, Winslet has a wicked sense of humor to go along with her sweet smile. Just watch her guest appearance on "Extras!" This British spitfire has been nominated for five Oscars with no wins ... yet. We'll have to see what the...
