A Scene from ‘Buried’

A Clip from Josh Radnor’s New Movie

— by RACHEL COYNE — If you’re a fan of “How I Met Your Mother” and Ted is your favorite character (which is just ridiculous, since it’s go Barney or go home), then “Happythankyoumoreplease” may be your cup of tea. Your cup of poorly-punctuated tea… Josh Radnor attempts to[...]

Under Review: ‘When in Rome’

— by ALLISON HIGGINBOTHAM — The title of the film “When In Rome” is taken from the saying “when in Rome, do as the Romans do.” With this film, however, it was more like “when making a romantic comedy, do as all other romantic comedies do.” “When In Rome” centers[...]

Trailer Talk: ‘Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps’

Under Review: ‘Edge of Darkness’

— by MARIUSZ ZUBROWSKI — Though I can’t fathom the mindset of a parent whose child has been murdered, I can’t imagine anyone going on a bloody rampage in order to deliver their own brand of “justice.” But of course, not everything in film is realistic. We, as[...]

About That George Lucas Fairies Project …

Trailer Talk: ‘Takers’

— by SEAN GERSKI — I have to admit, after the abomination that was the poster for Idris Elba’s new heist flick, “Takers” (view it here, if you dare), I really expected the trailer for the movie to be terrible, as well. It isn’t. It isn’t good, either, mind[...]

A Fan-Made Trailer for ‘Technotise’

— by CAM SMITH — Generally, I’m not the world’s biggest fan of fan-made trailers. While I can appreciate the effort and enthusiasm that went in to them, I usually find myself spending the majority of their short run-time muttering half-witted statements like “Was that a clip[...]

A Clip from ‘Smallville: Absolute Justice’

— by BEN FOWLER — OK, I must warn you that before I start this article, I am extremely geeked out by this preview for Smallville’s upcoming two-hour event. I will try to control my fanboy-isms for the duration of the article, but no promises … So, as we said, “Smallville[...]

Why rebooting Spider-Man makes sense

— by JON MARTINCIC — I’m as big a fan as anyone of all three of the “Spider-man” movies. It’s been a treat watching one series spark the biggest movie trend of the previous decade. Tobey Maguire has been phenomenal as Peter Parker, James Franco made Harry Osbourne[...]
