Escape Room – Trailer

I like this trailer. Take four or five people, heretofore unknown to each other, put them into a controlled–by someone–situation where they’re faced with either solving a puzzle, or dying. It plays a bit like Cube meets Saw (hopefully without the sadism) though what’s going to make or break this movie is the chemistry between […]

Doom Patrol – Teaser Trailer

Let me guess…they’re aiming for quirky here? DC Universe, the streaming service dedicated to DC Comics-based properties released a teaser trailer for their upcoming Doom Patrol series a few minutes ago and it looks…okay. And speaking of quirky, I think they’re trying too hard but if the series actually lives up to it I guess […]

Aladdin – Teaser Trailer# 2

I’d be lying if I said I cared about Disney’s upcoming live-action Aladdin. After all, I haven’t even seen the cartoon the movie was based on though In the name of full disclosure I should mention I also hadn’t seen the cartoon that begat Beauty And The Beast before seeing the live action version on […]

Men In Black International – Official Trailer

Besides the title being a bit silly–after all the Men In Black includes aliens from OTHER WORLDS, for frak’s sake! Yet somehow we’re emphasizing it’s international nature!? Then there’s the product placement (memo to studio: If you’re seeing obnoxious product placement in the damn trailer it’s likely to be even more so in the movie, […]

The Final Wish – Trailer

I hate to be a cynic–it’s safe to assume not enough that I won’t act like one–though my expectations for The Final Wish are…pretty low. I like to call this one ‘The Lin Shaye and Tony Todd Movie’ because they’re the only reason anyone is likely interested in seeing it (low blow.  I hope you’re […]

Star Trek: Discovery – Season 2 – Official Trailer

As the standard bearer for CBS All Access I’m at best ambivalent about Star Trek: Discovery. I think–from what I can deduce from the trailers–that it looks absolutely gorgeous and cinematic. That being said, subscribing to another streaming channel just to watch it seems a bit…excessive. It doesn’t help that CBS is going through all […]

Captive State – Official Trailer

Trust me, this movie has ‘sleeper’ written all over it. A thriller in the vein of V and Colony Captive State revolves around an alien invasion of the country (world?) where some humans are cooperating while others act as a rag-tag resistance. Have we seen this scenario before? Sure, but not recently and with movies […]

Sonic The Hedgehog – Motion Poster

Recently Paramount released a motion poster for their upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog movie, and it looks…interesting, to put it charitably (and I don’t mean in a good way). The biggest problem seems like the producers may be aiming for a more realistic interpretation of the over-caffeinated Erinaceomorpha (in other words, not a rodent). Though more […]

Stranger Things, Season 3 – Teaser Trailer

To be honest I’m not a huge fan of Netflix’s Stranger Things.  I don’t mean do say that I don’t enjoy the series–so far I liked both seasons, though prefer the First–but it’s always felt like it was imitating the 80’s as opposed to the characters actually living in that decade. And the reason for […]
