    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…

    G-S-T Review…Margaret

    Here’s an ethics question for everyone: Would you do something wrong (read: bend the truth or just flat-out lie) to save your own hide or someone else’s because in the long run you know it’s a decision for the greater good? The film Margaret attempts to answer that in a very nebulous manner. In some ways it’s a modern and ethically grey (messed up is more appropriate) fable, but the story goes to show that not only can a wrong decision have unintended consequences, those ripples can go farther than you’d ever imagine. More importantly, somethings can never ever be undone or taken back.

    Sweet Trailer…'Margaret'

    Fox Searchlight has released the first trailer for the very dramatic film Margaret and it’s a doozy to say the least. Telling the story of a girl who has witnessed a bus accident, she becomes caught up in the aftermath where the question of whether or not it was intentional affects many people’s lives. For only a 2:17 runtime, this trailer is like a sure-shot punch to your emotions. Sporting an impressive cast for an indie film Anna Paquin stars alongside Mark Ruffalo, Matt Damon and many more, you’ll be surprised just who pops ups in this tearjerker. Have a look for yourself… Well I certainly didn’t see this coming but it’s on my radar now. Written…

    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…
