Rocketman – Official Teaser Trailer

I like that idea that there are all sorts of movies out there–between major studios releases and more art-house fare–that there’re options no matter what your tastes happen to be. This is a good thing because I don’t know who the audience is for Dexter Fletcher’s Rocketman though what I do know is that it’s not […]

The Gifted – Trailer

The Gifted is the second series begat from the deal between Marvel Entertainment and Fox and it’s curiously conventional-looking, especially compared to Legion (the first series launched on sister channel, FX). That aforementioned conventionality may have a lot to do with it being directed by Bryan Singer, who helmed many of the X-Men movies, and contributed […]

Independence Day: Resurgence – Trailer 2

  Take note, Bryan Singer, this is how you do it!  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: No body brings the destruction like Roland Emmerich (and I’m not suggesting for a moment that it has anything to do with him being German, though it can’t hurt). The sequel to 1996’s Independence Day […]

X-Men: Age Of Apocalypse – Official Trailer

While it’s great that Bryan Singer finally understands that he’s making movies based on comic books, the bulletin might have come just a bit too late. Reason being, we’ve got Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice premiering March 28–by the time its competition appears on the horizon hopefully it will have profitability in its sights.  If it doesn’t […]

Deadpool Red Band Trailer – Trailer 2

I’m not particularly fond of how Fox has treated the Marvel properties (X-Men, Fantastic Four) that they have under their control. Though my feelings–and the clusterfuck that was the recent Fantastic Four movie notwithstanding–if box office receipts are any indication, most people approve of what they’re doing with the X-Men. Which brings me to the latest […]

Fantastic Four – Trailer

Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four just released a trailer, and its…okay.  All the elements are there, but it’s coming on the heels of  trailers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens (still hate that subtitle), Ant-Man and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, so it’s easy to see why it’s a bit underwhelming at this point. As I said, […]

The Signal

Ecclesiastes 1:4-11 said: What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun. Most movies seem to have taken those words to heart, because they tend to be be all the same, no matter whether they’re comedies, action movies, or […]
