    Sweet Trailer…’Top Gun: Maverick’

    It’s been a long time since Tom Cruise took to the skies in Top Gun. After 33 years, this film joins the list of all the other properties from the ’80s seeing a remake, soft reboot, or a continued story line. How will this fare? Even as die hard fans of Tony Scott’s classic we’re a little on the fence. But you can’t argue with this trailer, especially seeing Tom Cruise in the cockpit. And we know Tom, right? He’s not going to be happy unless he’s going Mach 2 with his hair on fire. Well, with just a little luck, a little cold blue steel, he’ll cut the night like a razor blade…again. Facing…

    Sweet Trailer…Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah'

    How does Russell Crowe top playing Maximus, Robin Hood and even the Father of the Man of Steel? Well there’s really only one way. He’s gotta go back, way back, like old testament. After lots of anticipation and some news of production woes (what HUGE feature doesn’t have them?) we’re finally getting to see the epic vision for Darren Aronofsky’s Noah starring Crowe as the Biblical hero. This is supposed to be a mammoth production, without question the biggest film Aronofsky has ever tackled, and filled with painstakingly rendered CGI animals. A lot of what we’re seeing is quick cuts, basically an extended teaser, but it looks sensational. Enjoy! In Aronofsky’s…

    Sweet Trailer…'Writers'

    They say writers write what they know. So why is it they all have messed up stories to tell? Well that’s because life is messed up and they’re usually the only ones brave enough to bring that fact to light. By sharing their problems, awkward situations, inadequacies, etc. they give hope to a whole generation of people possibly facing similar issues. That said a little cinematic sugar can help the uncomfortable mess they call life a little easier to put down. As such, if you’re keen on that sort of stuff, enjoy this trailer for Writers from Millennium Entertainment. Writers stars Greg Kinnear trying to keep his the pieces of…

    Sweet Trailer…'Salvation Boulevard'

    Yesterday we featured the indie flick Lucky and wouldn’t ya know it, we have a trailer for another DIFF film that got picked up. Neat, only too bad for me that I didn’t know this trailer dropped last month. Adapted from Larry Beinhart’s book of the same name, Salvation Boulevard tells the tale of mega-church preacher Dan Day who accidentally shoots his atheist colleague after one of their rousing debates. While he and Carl (ex-Dead Head and poster boy for the “converted”) think they are the only witnesses, Dan soon receives menacing phone calls from someone threatening to expose him. Dan’s world (and sanity) is turned upside down as he…

    Off the Shelf…'Blood Diamond'

    I guess it’s fair to say that I never really paid attention to (or rather heard of ) Edward Zwick before seeing Blood Diamond. The reason for that is simple: I hadn’t seen any of his films. Well after seeing Blood Diamond (and immediately buying it on DVD) I made it a point to see what else this extraordinary director/writer/producer had to his credit…and I was not disappointed. The Last Samurai, Glory, Legends of the Fall…wow, how could I have overlooked these films? While I could go on about those great films, I’d like to get started by stating simply that Blood Diamond is one of my favorites. It is an incredibly poignant,…
