Trailer Into REaction: Grizzly II: Revenge (2020) | Official Trailer

The original Grizzly (1976) was clearly at attempt to capitalize on the success of Jaws (1973), changing the setting from a seaside resort town to an unnamed national park in the United States (it was filmed in Georgia) and the threat from a shark to a grizzly. In and of itself, it’s a pretty unremarkable […]

Tomorrowland – Trailer 3

Looking at the latest trailer for Brad Bird‘s Tomorrowland, Casey Newton (Britt Robertson) and Frank Walker (George Clooney) are either running from robots, or I’m watching the trailer for  what’s quite possibly the most violent Disney movie ever made. In fact, there’s a scene that’s eerily reminiscent of another movie that probably won’t be confused with anything […]

‘Transformers: Age Of Extinction’ Trailer

Wha!? I just finished watching the trailer for Michael Bay’s latest ‘Transformers’ film, and I have to say that he’s had better trailers.  This one has a particularly disjointed quality to it, and feels like random footage was thrown together with little logic. Which isn’t unusual for a trailer, though some sort of narrative cohesion […]

‘Gravity’ Review

“Alfonso Cuarón’s “Gravity” is a triumph of technology and storytelling that will take your breath away.” I went into Alfonso Cuarón’s “Gravity” expecting to be well-entertained.  After all, he’s the guy that did – for my money, the only Harry Potter film worth caring about, “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” and well as […]

‘The Monuments Men’ Trailer

When I heard about George Clooney’s latest directorial vehicle, “The Monuments Men,” I wasn’t too interested. First, ‘Monuments’ is plural, as opposed to singular, which sounds a bit odd to me. Then, there are no space ships, giant robots or aliens, so it wasn’t exactly on my radar. Till I saw the trailer. Clooney’s take […]

‘Gravity’ Teaser Trailer

I have been waiting for Alfonso Cuarón‘s “Gravity” for awhile, and it’s getting closer. In my mind Cuarón is in the same class as Guillermo Del Toro, which is another way of saying that if either of them comes out with a film, go see it. Besides, his last film, “Children Of Men” was not […]

‘Silver Linings Playbook’ Review

“David O’ Russell’s “Silver Linings Playbook,” shows that it’s sometimes hard to separate the keepers from the inmates.” The first part of this review is more a commentary upon the behavior of the director, David O’Russell.  If such things don’t interest you, please continue reading below the second Youtube clip. I saw David O’ Russell’s 2009 film,“Three […]

Touch Of Evil

Sometimes, you find something on the web (that isn’t porn and has nothing to do with anyone involved with Jersey Shore the Kardashians) that demands to be seen.  “Touch of Evil” from the New York Times is an example of such an thing. It’s composed of thirteen short clips, with actors like Viola Davis, George Clooney, […]
