This isn’t a new Back to the Future teaser


But it’s something. A commercial probably?

Ghost Rider Rides Again


Ghost Rider sucked. But the sequel has some promise, what with the Crank  guys behind it. The trailer bears that theory out:

So yeah, he pisses fire now. I have to say if there was any Marvel character who I’d want to see piss fire, it’d be Ghost Rider. So…yeah, okay I’m in.

Paul Rudd is Funny


And he so rarely gets to show it on this level, so watch and learn, even though the movie he’s flogging is probably mediocre at best.

The REAL Change-Up


Happy Monday, folks.

Al Pacino sure is in a lot of made-for-TV movies these days, huh?


Like this one he’s doing that tells the true story The Hair Bear Bunch.

Okay, The Change-Up


You have me interested…

What if John Landis made a movie and nobody cared?

Such seems to be the case with Landis’ Burke and Hare which now has a trailer and a small US release next month.  Let’s take a look:

Yup. Just about. Let’s hope that this trailer, which mostly consists of poop jokes, isn’t any indication of what the movie is really like. I was so hoping to be excited about this.

Yippee-ki-yay, Motherfucker…Jr.

What's that? You say this isn't a picture of Bruce Willis? Oh. Rumer Willis? What the hell is a Rumer Willis?

Remember how excited you were about Live Free or Die Hard?  The teaser trailer, with it’s rockin’ version of “God Bless America”, made it seem like John McClane was back and as ready to kick some ass as before.  However, things turned sour pretty fast.  Bruce Willis was playing now McClane as “Old Man Bruce Willis”, Justin Long was no Sam Jackson, Kevin Smith showed up for some reason, and finally, the final stab to fans hearts, a PG-13 rating.

Okay, so honestly, it wasn’t that bad.  The R rated cut that later showed up on DVD made it more enjoyable, but let’s not kid ourselves: It mostly fell into the “Unnecessary Sequel” category.  But that was that.  I’ve moved on and so has Bruce’s career (kinda). 

But wait!  Hollywood has more to say!  The internet is abuzz with talk of Die Hard 5, and it looks like we’re finally getting plot details.  So what’s it all about?  Well…do you remember John McClane, Jr.?  You know, Bruce’s son that we saw for maybe fifteen seconds in the first film and was later mentioned in passing in Live Free or Die Hard?  Yeah, he’s taking over the series.  You read that right.  The plot of Die Hard 5 will feature John and John Jr. both having a pretty rough day.  Oh, and in Russia for some reason.

I can only assume that the studio is currently shopping for such fine modern thespians as Channing Tatum, Paul Walker, Justin Long, James Franco, or (dare I say it), Seth Rogan.  That’s right, I went there.  Who knows?  Maybe they’ll even go younger to pull in the tween crowd.  I hear Justin Bieber is looking to break into movies.  “Yippie-ki-yay, featherplucker”, anyone?

I’ll keep an eye on this for you all.  Until then, I’m going to go calm down by watching Die Hard with a Vengeance.  Now that’s a Die Hard movie.

In a Perfect World…

In a perfect world I would be roommates with Joe Dante.  Obviously, this would lead to all sorts of wacky sitcom style hijinks (I would accidentally set fire to Joe’s rare copy of Hellzapoppin’, Joe would ruin my dinner with Roger Corman by informing him that I’m not actually Paul Bartel’s son), but the best part would be our goofy lug of a next door neighbor, John Landis.  He would always be walking in unannounced and saying all of the wrong things to the dates we brought home.  Now that I think about it, here’s a clip from that show:

All kidding aside: That show I just pitched needs to happen. Joe, if you’re reading this, call me. I work cheap.

Spring Break ’97


Man, it’s getting lazy around here! Yes, we’re taking next week off, both from the blog and the podcast. Why, you ask? Because we’re ramping up to our super awesome 100th podcast! So hang tight, and we’ll be back week after next with our thoughts on Harry Potter AND Captain America.

Until then, I bet you saw that trailer Logan posted yesterday and thought “Gee, I wonder what deceased Oscar-winning actor George C. Scott would have thought of this?” Well, wonder no more:

Happy Madison presents…the usual shit

Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

I fully expect this to be the biggest hit of the upcoming holiday season.

Sam Raimi wants to murder you in a friendly sorta way


Happy Monday, guys. Nothing gets your week started quite like a little shot of Evil Dead II as presented by the director himself, a young and impish Sam Raimi. Is it just me or does Raimi look like he’s starring in a Nintendo Power commercial here?

Mission? Impossibly awesome

Yeah yeah.  I don’t want to ram yet another cheesy or fun or super cool trailer down your throats again today, but there’s been a bunch popping up this week.  Maybe it’s just me, but so far it seems like this year’s best summer films are coming out this fall/winter. 

Example?  The giddy thrill I got when I first saw the trailer for this December release:

Rowan Atkinson Reborn

It’s been a while since Rowan Atkinson last lit up my local cineplex.  Since another Mr. Bean is still out of the question (Atkinson said in several interviews that 2007’s Mr. Bean’s Holiday was the final send-off of the character), it looks like we’re going to have to settle with Johnny English Reborn.  Sure, the first one was just so-so and performed as such in America, but you have to remember that it was a huge hit on it’s native UK where Rowan is still a box office draw.

Okay, ya got me, Fright Night remake


When Logan posted the first trailer, I thought it had potential. But this new trailer adds the one thing that’s guaranteed to get my money: Doctor Who shooting a stake-gun at vampires. You’d be a full not to watch this:
