    G-S-T Review…Oz the Great and Powerful

    Who wouldn’t want to travel to the wondrous and imaginative worlds we’ve seen grace the silver screen? Chief among the most magical candidates has to be the Land of Oz. In this prequel to the 1939 classic, Sam Raimi shows us how the “Wizard of Oz” became so Great and Powerful. Usually it’s with extreme hesitation that one would chose to add to the mythology of property as legendary as The Wizard of Oz. Others smartly leave well enough alone. After all, the sequel and TV spin offs have yielded results paling in comparison to Victor Fleming’s film. Since going back has been done before the only place to go is back to the beginning, right? How very contemporary. The film…

    G-S-T Review…The Bourne Legacy

    We’re at a point in franchising history where three films will no longer do. Series from Die Hard to Indiana Jones have been expanded beyond their trilogy borders to include a fourth entry; meanwhile, the future third film in the Hunger Games saga is already being split into two parts. Traditionally, conventional wisdom marks the third film in a trilogy as the lesser installment of the series, but as three-parters get expanded to four, so too is that adage stretched out– and if The Bourne Legacy has anything to add to the discussion, then the fourth film is the new third. Call it tepid, call it slack, call it pointless;…

    “The CineMagic 8-Ball” – In Theaters 8/3/12

    When so many movies are released each weekend and trailers often seem better than the movie itself, what should one do? In this precarious situation, we consult the The CineMagic 8-Ball (TM) to help us see through the nebulous marketing haze. Doing so just might save us all a disheartening trip to the cinema and spare us unnecessarily springing for $7 popcorn. See what the 8-Ball says about this week’s releases… ——————————————————————————————————————————————- DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: DOG DAYS During his summer vacation, “Wimpy Kid” Greg Heffley, the hero of the phenomenally successful book series, hatches a plan to pretend he has a job at a ritzy country club —…

    Sweet Trailer…'The Bourne Legacy'

    Hot off the press comes this ‘sneak peek’ featuring Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker, The Avengers, M:I 4) taking over the series for Matt Damon. As we’ve seen in the last teaser the spy world is so much larger than we ever imagined. Case in point: the great tagline “there was never just one” is incredibly deep and impacting to say the least. So feast your eyes on this trailer for The Bourne Legacy, which does a great job of showing how this film fits into Damon’s Bourne universe with a side/parallel story from writer/director Tony Gilroy…enjoy! In addition to Renner taking the reins we’ll see the supporting cast of Albert Finney, Joan Allen and Scott Glen return…

    Sweet (Teaser) Trailer…'The Bourne Legacy'

    The spy world is bigger than we ever imaged and to show it is this teaser for the Tony Gilroy written & directed parallel to the Doug Liman/Paul Greengrass films. Even the tag line “There was never just one” is smart and speaks volumes. Cemented as a bad-ass in The Hurt Locker and hot off the success of the latest Mission Impossible, Jeremy Renner looks to become the next big action hero. This film will be the start of a whole new series following a Jason Bourne-like agent. But since it’s as much about the agency as it is the agent, there’s plenty of nods to the Damon films as well as familiar faces with…

    G-S-T Review…Dream House

    At first glance the names Craig, Weisz, Watts and Sheridan look great on a poster and together could help make a solid film. But even a roster like that can contribute to something terrible. In short Dream House is constantly plagued by components that seem beyond amateur; shoddy editing, thin story, poor dialog, etc. Then there’s other things that don’t help any. As a film fan my attention to detail tends to get the better of me and certain things just take me out of the story. Scenes that are supposedly shot in the Winter and yet there’s no breath coming out of anyone’s mouth. It’s minor mind you but it’s made all the…

    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…
