    Sweet Trailer…'Kick-Ass 2'

    Today we get the chance to see the trailer for the bloody, hilarious, absurd and no holds barred follow up to Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass. Universal’s Kick-Ass 2 picks up not long after the events this first film…and it’s everything you’d expect in a comic book sequel. We get more heroes (including Colonel Stars and Stripes, who is played by chameleon Jim Carrey), more action and more of everything that comes with it, especially the tone and fun that was had in the 2012 film. Enjoy the first RED BAND trailer for this over the top sequel! Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl will need all the help they can get, because a foe from the first film, Red…

    G-S-T Quick 5 – Favorite Vigilante Films

    vig·i·lan·te: any person who takes the law into his or her own hands, as by avenging a crime. A mainstay in the film world for decades, vigilantes come in all shapes in sizes and work their special brand of street justice for a variety of reasons. In some cases they operate just outside the law and work in secret. But then again there are those who work with the law and are not so secret about their bone-crunching ways. I guess you can say that vigilantes are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re gonna get…except the outcome which finds baddies getting what they deserve. Now there are…

    Official Synopsis Revealed for 'Kick-Ass 2'

    In 2010, Kick-Ass had a pretty favorable cinematic run. Thanks to Matthew Vaughn‘s stylized direction and the likable cast, it successfully blended a Spider-Man level origin story with the boundary pushing content from the comic that inspired it. While I still think the film feels a little flat (despite Cage killing it as Big Daddy and Chloë Moretz giving one hell of a performance) things look more full-bodied as the returning cast and newcomers already make this sound like a home run. For those curious about what’s in store for our off-kilter heroes, read the official synopsis below: Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit:…

    G-S-T Review…Kick-Ass

    Not being very familiar with Kick-Ass, I was excited because of how the trailers looked and felt, but more importantly, the fact that this is directed by long time Guy Ritchie collaborator, Matthew Vaughn. So, knowing little to nothing about the “source material” I walked into the theater hoping for a ride as sweet as Red Mist‘s Mustang. In short, the movie didn’t live up to the trailers but was still an enjoyable time. PREMISE: Without any super powers to be found (or injected by radio-active insects) Dave Lizewski, after reading a few too many comic books, decides to become a real life superhero. Taking a fair amounts of knocks in his newfound profession…

    Final 'Kick Ass' Poster Released

    While this movie is quickly becoming my most anticipated film to see in 2010 (right behind The Expendables and Robin Hood), this FINAL poster for Kick-Ass is icing on the cake.

    Sweet Trailers…'Daybreakers' and 'Kick-Ass'

    Well I know I am a little late in posting these but I thought I would make up for my tardiness with a perfect “one-two punch” of what looks like trailer gold.  Previously we had posted the first Daybreakers trailer, but this new one looks like icing on top of icing on an already sweet cake.  Please trailer gods, don’t tease me like this.  I truly hope this film will be as good as they make it look.  The last (supposed) vampire hunting extravaganza I can recall was Blade: Trinity (which was an awful, awful mess) so here’s hoping Daybreakers brings this fun incubus sub-genre back to form with 2 words: Willem.…
