G-S-T Review…Oblivion

This year is rife with movies portraying the demise of Earth’s ecosystem and our departure from the planet.  The news of NASA’s discovery of three inhabitable planets within one light year away will undoubtedly make these movies a lot more intriguing for some.  The first movie in this year’s series of Earth’s demise films is […]

G-S-T Review…Olympus Has Fallen

Time has not been kind to Antoine Fuqua. Over a decade ago, he became an Oscar-caliber filmmaker (for whatever that label is worth) after Training Day vaulted him into mainstream prominence on the back of its gritty violence, no-nonsense artistry, and mesmerizing performances; in between then and now he’s output nothing but a handful of […]

Sweet Trailer…'Olympus Has Fallen'

Gerard Butler stars in Antonie Fuqua‘s throw-back themed actioner Olympus Has Fallen. In the film, the White House (codeword: Olympus) has been overrun by terrorists and only one man can save the day. Disgraced former Presidential guard Mike Banning (Butler) finds himself trapped inside the White House in the wake of the attack. Using his inside knowledge, Banning works […]

Sweet New Trailer (and Poster)…Joseph Kosinski’s ‘Oblivion’

There’s not much more that needs to be said about this film that doesn’t already speak for itself. On paper Oblivion sounds like a win and like icing on the cake, the trailers have really been hitting all the right chords. Kosinski, Cruise, M83 and epic sci-fi, that alone should seal the deal on this […]

Sweet Trailer…Joseph Kosinski's Sci-Fi Thriller 'Oblivion'

After a week of posts making reference to Universal not showing us anything about Oblivion they put out a trailer that does not fail to impress. Cruise stars as Jack Harper, one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on a post-apocalyptic Earth. Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war […]

Sweet Trailer…Jesse Eisenberg's Ensemble Heist Flick 'Now You See Me'

Yesterday The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 opened across the nation and one of the surprises (beyond the 15 minute melee in the finale), which funny enough had nothing to do with Twilight, came in the form of a trailer. The trailer in question was for the upcoming Jesse Eisenberg vehicle Now You See Me. […]

G-S-T Review…The Dark Knight Rises

 A third film seems to be the biggest pitfall in nearly every trilogy. Some see it as a challenge, and that’s likely what propelled director Christopher Nolan to return to the helm of the franchise he rebooted in 2005 with Batman Begins and hit out of the park in 2008 with The Dark Knight. Nolan has been trending […]

Off the Shelf…’Wanted’

Last night I watched Wanted and I forgot how much fun that movie was.  Talk about a kick-ass movie that defies physics. This beyond cool movie was a “knock your socks off” actioner and if you blinked even once during the last 15 minutes then you probably missed a lot. Sure it was totally unbelievable […]

Off the Shelf…'Lucky Number Slevin'

Certain films out there have twist endings that really make your jaw drop. However to be a successful “twist ending” usually the film will be able to perform and amaze on repeat viewings. Lucky Number Slevin isn’t one of them. However it still has quite a lot going for it and a fairly impressive “twist ending” […]
