The Upside – Trailer

I actually want to see this movie. That’s interesting because there’re no space battles, aliens, or undead anything (as far as I’m aware). Though what there is are apparently engaging performances by Kevin Hart, Bryan ‘Heisenberg’ Cranston and Nicole Kidman. And sure, the movie looks like a cliché (Cranston rediscovers his joie de vivre while Hart discovers a sense of self-worth and value) but […]

Captain Underpants – Trailer

Is it a little odd that seeing the trailer for Captain Underpants I really have an urge to read the books it’s based on? In any case, with voice acting by Kevin Hart, Nick Kroll and Ed Helms the cast is pretty spectacular though with Kroll as (apparently) the villain of the piece it comes off a […]

The Secret Life Of Pets – Trailer

The Secret Life Of Pets – Trailer 1 With voice talent provided by Louie C.K. and Kevin Hart, you’d think that The Secret Life Of Pets would be pretty awesome, never mind funny. The Secret Life Of Pets – Trailer 2 But if the reviews that are coming in are any indicator, then seeing this movie is akin to […]

Get Hard – Trailer

If I can get one thing for Christmas it will be that Will Farrell NEVER appears nude–or semi-nude, for that matter–in movies ever again.  His sense of shamelessness and boldness are to be applauded, but he’s not exactly easy on the eyes. Doughy and the antithesis of athletic, Chris Evans he’s not. In any case, […]

‘Think Like A Man Too’ Review

  Tim Story is a prolific multihyphenate producer-director, who in the 12 years between 2002 to 2014, produced one feature and directed 10. In 2011 he began a partnership with Kevin Hart, directing the standup specials Laugh At My Pain, followed by Let Me Explain (with Leslie Small) in 2013. Between those two films he directed Think Like A Man, with […]

‘Ride Along’ Trailer

As a director, I get the feeling that Tim Story doesn’t get the credit that he deserves. The two Fantastic Four films were workable (he’s done other films, like “Barbershop” and “Taxi,” but I am more concerned with his fantastical fare.  The reason why I will get to momentarily). In fact, that’s their greatest problem: […]

‘Grudge Match’ Trailer

I have never been too fond of boxing films.  Their goal is generally an inspirational one, but truth be told I don’t tend to find two guy pounding each other into incoherence all that inspiring.  Peter Segal’s “Grudge Match” looks to be more geared toward the the comedic than the inspirational, which is good. Plus, […]
