Blackhat – Trailer

Isn’t it remarkable what a few days can bring?  A few weeks ago, a thriller like Michael Mann‘s Blackhat–a movie that revolves around about Nicholas Hathaway (Chris Hemsworth) a cyber criminal released from prison to counter the threat of a cyber terrorist with the ability to bring a nation to its collective knees–would probably have been an […]

All Hail The King

“Iron Man 3,” with the reveal that the character that everyone thought was the Mandarin was actually Trevor Slattery (supposedly an actor of some repute in British theater circles) was a pretty bold move. Some fans rolled with it, while others were a bit peeved.  Myself, I thought it was a particularly ballsy move on […]

‘Ender’s Game’ Review

“Gavin Hood’s version of Orson Scott Card’s “Ender’s Game” didn’t do too well at the box office, which is a pity, because it’s pretty damn entertaining.” Gavin Hood’s last film was the pretty mediocre “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” which is reason enough for some to dislike him passionately.  Though not me.  The thing is, technically that […]

‘Ender’s Game’ Trailer

Gavin Hood gets a bad rap.  The South African director made “Totsi” in 2005, which he won an Academy Award for.  His biggest film – in terms of budget – was “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” which didn’t get any Oscars.

‘Iron Man 3’ Character Posters

This isn’t new–it’s been available on the Interwebs for about a week now–but if you haven’t seen it, it’s new to you. What you’re looking at is the latest cast member poster from “Iron Man 3,” and I have to admit that Ben Kingsley, as the Mandarin, looks all sorts of badass, which I hope […]

‘Iron Man 3’ Teaser Trailer

Here’s the latest teaser from “Iron Man 3,” and it looks different from those that came before because it seems to hint at dangers not only for Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), but Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) as well.  There’s no hint of the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) though I hope that they avoid putting […]

The Mandarin Lives!

When I heard that Ben Kingsley was going to be in Shane Black’s “Iron Man 3,” I was hoping that he would appear as the Mandarin, especially since the character has been teased since the first film (The ‘Ten Rings’ organization).  Well, it appears that someone has come to their senses, because rumors have it […]
