    Tribeca Film Picks Up Rights to Tony Kaye's 'Detachment'

    Making some buzz (and its world premier) at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival Adrien Brody starring alongside and very strong cast in Detachment from acclaimed Director Tony Kaye (American History X). Brody stars as Henry Barthes, an educator with a true talent to connect with his students. Yet Henry has chosen to bury his gift. By spending his days as a substitute teacher, he conveniently avoids any emotional connections by never staying anywhere long enough to form an attachment to either students or colleagues. When a new assignment places him at a public school where a frustrated, burned-out administration has created an apathetic student body, Henry soon becomes a role model to the disaffected youth.…

    G-S-T Review…Predators

    In what is both a simultaneous reboot and a sequel to the beloved Predator, Robert Rodriguez and Nimród Antal looked to breathe new life into the severely failing franchise. In short this was a return to the basics and what the series needed, however I was simply underwhelmed. It was a fun outing that I had with some fellow Predator fans, but honestly I was more entertained with the fake Arnold voice-over trailer for the film. PLOT: To me, so much of the film just screamed “fan boy film”. They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and in that respect this was highly flattering. The drawback here…

    Off the Netflix Queue…'The Brothers Bloom'

    In the follow-up to his astounding film Brick, Rian Johnson goes a little less serious for his sophomore feature-length effort but makes a film just as rich and compelling. Johnson attempts to explore the almost ludicrous and funnier side of life that few of us will ever be able to comprehend…the life of a con-artist. The Brothers Bloom is a quirky con-artist flick that is just as witty as Brick but is funny, funny, funny. In most instances where the trailer is more exciting that the movie itself, this is the rare occasion where the polar opposite is true. The trailer below doesn’t do this film the justice it deserves…which is…

    Sweet Trailer…'Splice'

    The trailer for Vincenzo Natali’s Splice dropped at the end of last week and man, is this a pretty creepy sci-horror flick!! We first heard of this film in the Fall of last year but haven’t seen much since then…although lucky attendees to Sundance got to see it and have nothing but rave reviews. This trailer looks pretty slick and I like the confined nature that it looks like they’re going for. Or maybe that’s just because of the lab they’re in:P While some will automatically claim this looks surprisingly like a rip-off of Species given the plot synopsis, this looks quite a bit better (although there is no Natasha Henstridge…pity). Anyway, after…
