Jon Turteltaub’s The Meg isn’t a terrible movie–that would imply some sort of drive, of ambition–it’s just so intent on doing it’s damnedest to not offend that it’s just a bit boring. That’s not to say that there’re no thrilling or humorous moments–there are–but they’re scattered among a pretty generic plot that’s so rife with […]
I’ll readily admit that movies like Hobbs & Shaw aren’t typically the types of movies I tend to see. Too many cars defying the laws of physics, too much exposition about people being “family” as opposed to people just acting as such. That being said I enjoyed the trailer because it rises or falls on […]
A trailer just dropped for The MEG, a movie about a megalodon going around doing what sharks do in movies, which is eating humans (despite the fact that we’re by no means a normal part of their diet). Though I have other problems with this trailer. First off, the book this movie is based on […]
When I caught Doctor Strange last weekend one of trailers before the movie was XXX: The Return Of Xander Cage, which fascinated me because prior to that moment I had rarely seen so much stupid squeezed into a trailer that lasted no more than two or three minutes. It reminded me of the time Jason Statham said […]
You know what? I honestly think that Tom Cruise is a bit of a nut, and the feeling of well-being he often attributes to his faith are more than likely the insulating effects of money and influence. That been said, you have to give the guy credit because most any other actor–with the possible exception of […]
I haven’t seen any of The Fast and the Furious movies in their entirety (though I recall catching a snippet of The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift when I was visiting my parents awhile ago) and had no intent of doing so. I am also surprised to learn that there have only been three, excluding the latest movie. […]
While I have never (directly) paid to see any of the ‘Expendables’ films when I happen to catch one I generally have a good time. There’s a sense that Sylvester Stallone and the rest of his crew aren’t taking themselves quite so seriously, no matter how much violence rains about them. That’s a refreshing change […]
The trailer for “The Killer Elite,” staring Jason Statham, Clive Owen and Robert DeNiro. So far, reviews seem mixed, and I am definitely not feeling the mustache on Owen, though Statham is a walking can of kick-arse.
