Life – Trailer

What’s with Sony Pictures and the heavy space exploration theme they seem to striking? Last week they released Passengers, a movie where Chris Pratt decides that being alone for 90 years sucks so much that the best thing to do is to submit someone else to the very same fate. Their latest effort is Life, […]

Passengers – Official Trailer

Visually, Morten Tyldum’s Passengers holds a huge debt to Pixar’s Wall-E, Danny Boyle’s Sunshine and Apple’s design esthetic. In other words, it’s attractive, but doesn’t appear to strike any new ground. The same thing can be said of the story, which revolves around two people who accidentally emerge from suspended animation 90 years too (or was it?), […]

The Magnificent Seven – Official Trailer

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Review

It’s That’s Good.  You’re Welcome. Let’s be clear about something:  James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy should not have worked, at least as well as Gunn (who co-wrote the screenplay with Nicole Perlman and directed) and Marvel Studios obviously think (and it’s clear that they are optimistic because based on early reviews a sequel as already been […]

AMC Movie News – ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’

Yesterday AMC had an interview with Chris Pratt, James Gunn and Kevin Fiege (President of Marvel Studios) about their upcoming movie “Guardians Of The Galaxy.” Here it is in its entirely.  The conversation is interesting, and John Campea, of AMC Movie News, asks some good questions (though there’s a whole lot of fawning going on) […]
