    G-S-T Review…The Avengers

    After leaving The Avengers, the first thought likely to come to mind is wow, wow and more WOW. That’s right comic friends, Joss Whedon isn’t joking around with this one. He delivers the comic book experience fans have been anticipating since Stan Lee co-created these iconic heroes decades ago. In what is the most ambitious and large scale comic film to date, there is no shortage of spectacle, excitement and near-epic story all rolled into one 142 minute feature. Whedon is known for being a fan boy at heart and as such delivers this film with such respect to not only the comics but also, and maybe more importantly, the fans. Nothing…

    Sweet 2nd Trailer…'The Avengers'

    The Super Bowl TV spot gave us a really good look at Joss Whedon’s Avengers adaptation and now we have a much grander glimpse at this epic action film.

    Sweet Trailer…'The Avengers' Super Bowl TV Spot

    The Avengers has been a long time coming with 6, count em, 6 films (4 origin stories, 1 sequel and 1 reboot) leading up to Joss Whedon’s highly  anticipated ensemble action flick. Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Iron Man and Hulk are all that stands between Loki and the certain annihilation of Earth. Sure he’s got an army but we have…well, you’ll see! Have a look at the full Super Bowl TV Spot for The Avengers… Admittedly this is little more than what we’ve seen in the teaser. I mean we still don’t even know who The Avengers are fighting. But is that a problem? If you ask me, I say not one bit. Sure is…

    Sweet (Teaser) Trailer…'The Avengers'

    Oh boy comic fans, today is a very special day. The teaser for Joss Whedon’s The Avengers just hit the web and it’s got fan boys (and girls) excited for what is probably the largest superhero movie ever created. Assembling the members one by one in semi-interweaving origin stories Marvel (and now Disney) has taken one helluva chance on the success of this ensemble film. I have a feeling that it’ll be awesome but you probably don’t need me to tell you that right? So until we get a full trailer, another and the endless TV spots, have a look at what Whedon will be bringing us next May. Man, I know…

    Ohhh, Look…Gorgeous "Avengers Assemble" Posters

    Captain America took home the box office gold this weekend (to the tune of $65.8M) and tons of positive reviews. As Steve Rogers is the final Avenger to get his big screen debut (in the Joss Whedonverse that is, we’re going to forget about that other early 90’s Cap flick) we finally have all the pieces in place for next year’s Avengers film. While the idea of a full scale Avengers film was a huge endeavor/risk, Marvel certainly did it right establishing the characters on their own as opposed to a convoluted introduction which would bog down their big budget film from the get go. The road leading up to…

    G-S-T Top 10 – Favorite Rain Day Flicks

    “April showers bring May flowers” and a few hours on the couch can certainly help get you through it all. Below is a breezy list of 10 films that don’t usually provide anything more than a diversion when it’s too rainy to go outside and play. This list ain’t all guilty pleasures, these aren’t even bad films. No, most are quite enjoyable on some level or another it’s just that none of them have high replay value or are very memorable. So here are some of my suggestions for something to throw in your DVD/Blu Ray player on rainy days as I find they’re just the ticket to beat the…

    Sweet Trailers…’Super Bowl XLV Ads’

    For those of you who saw the Super Bowl you’ll know there were some pretty dope spots for this year’s . This morning I heard a radio announcer say that “in two weeks, a majority of those who watched it will forget the score, but the commercials will live on“. Good point, however I believe the same can be said for a few of most of those Movie Spots. But whether the movie in question will actually be any good (or live up to this hype) is another thing entirely. So whether you missed the Super Bowl and this is your first time them or if you just want to see…

    While You Were Out…1/10 – 1/14

    Well, another week has gone by and again I’ve been tied up beyond belief. On the bright side, work is good, life is good and things are awesome. The down side is that I’ve been neglecting G-S-T as well as everyone else’s awesome blogs (read: my entire blogroll) and that makes me sad. Don’t worry dear friends I’ll get back to my rounds soon. So in case you missed it, here’s what happened this week:

    G-S-T Quick 5 – Guilty Pleasures

    Guilty Pleasure films usually fall into 1 of 3 categories 1.) Ones we don’t tell anyone we own 2.) Ones we don’t watch with anyone or 3.) Ones we just can’t figure what makes it so morbidly appealing. Now it may be one or two of the 3 said categories, but if all three do in fact apply, then you’ve either got a porno/snuff film or some kind of utterly terrible My Little Pony film…in that case you’ve probably come to this site looking for the wrong Guilty Pleasures:) Inspired by both Olive (of Movie News First) and Kai (of The List), I have gotten the urge to not only list my favorite Guilty…

    G-S-T Top 10 – Favorite High School/College Films

    Let me just say that you’re not going to find any classic John Hughes movies here. I tried to stay away from that simply because John Hughes movies should have their own category. Also the American Pie films will not be found either as I think they really are too exaggerated and therefore stupid so they don’t meet the same level of comic (and also raunchy) genius these films attain. That may be both biased and hypocritical when you take a look at the Top 10 below. That said, here are the films we love to watch whenever we start to miss College or think about how rough of a…
