The Avengers: Age Of Ultron Trailer – Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Edition

Kevin Feige, you cheeky bastard.  It appears that you pulled a fast one.  When the trailer for The Avengers: Age Of Ultron was leaked prior to it appearing on Marvel’s Agent’s Of S.H.I.E.L.D. I assumed that that was the end of this story.  Sure, Marvel Studios handed things pretty gracefully, but I thought it was […]

‘Alien: Isolation’ Trailer

Alien: Isolation, if the trailer does the game any justice, is gorgeous.  The original Alien, the movie that came out in 1979, directly inspired the videogame and was (and still is to many) considered to be one of the scariest movies ever made. The game play (as far as I can tell) as well as cinematics are directly […]

Why is Quicksilver’s Costume So Bad?

‘Ride Along’ Trailer

In fact, that’s their greatest problem: […]

Aaron Taylor-Johnson Races To Avengers 2?

Aaron Taylor-Johnson probably has an awesome agent.  I assume that his is the case because he’s starring in the upcoming “Kick-Ass 2,” a reboot of ‘Godzilla” and now it seems that he may be cast as ‘Quicksilver’ in the upcoming sequel to Marvel Studios’ “The Avengers.” Quicksilver is the guy to the right.  Hopefully he […]

‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’ Teaser Trailer

While I have to admit that I liked this trailer, what bothered me a bit was that it–the trailer–felt somehow familiar, as if I had seen it before.  Seeing that I am too broke to have any connect to either Bad Robot (J.J. Abrams’ production company) or Paramount Pictures, I have no idea why. Then […]
