    G-S-T Trailer Round Up: Sundance, Spartans, Sam Rockwell and Aussie Horror

    Whether you are living the sweet life at the Sundance Film Festival or like the rest of us have day jobs and are living vicariously through critic’s tweets, January is a busy movie month. Not really for quality cinema per se but advetising of forthcoming titles as it, by way of the festival circuit and Super Bowl commercials, allows us a chance to look ahead to films just over the horizon. Things you hadn’t expected or heard of may now start popping up all over your radar. Lots of trailers hit the web this week (some immediately following purchase and plans for distribution while at Sundance) and so this catch-all…

    Ohhh, Look…Theatrical Poster For Cianfrance's 'The Place Beyond the Pines'

    Derek Cianfrance’s Blue Valentine was not an easy film to get through. That affecting anti-romantic story was a devastating look at love and loss and couldn’t have felt any more uncomfortable or real if they tired. His follow up The Place Beyond the Pines, similarly starring Ryan Gosling, got a lot of buzz at the Toronto Film Festival last year and we have to say that the trailer looked impressive. Well the first official poster has been released and it sports the gritty tone of Cianfrance’s film. Have a look… This multi-generational film follows motorcycle stunt rider (Gosling) who turns to robbing banks as a way to provide for his lover (Mendes) and their newborn…

    G-S-T Review…Killing Them Softly

    Not every crime film has to appear the same. There can be grace and beauty, even in death, and time and time again, director Andrew Dominik proves this in Killing Them Softly. Raw, thought-provoking in unexpected ways, and supremely well acted, this is a crime film that stands out from the crowd for good and bad reasons. There’s a filthiness to one character in particular who you actually root to get knocked off. In fact, he gives such a disgusting and down-and-out performance you are left with a bad taste in your mouth. The amount of perspiration he seems to conjure up compared to everyone else is mesmerizing and loathsome…

  • The CineMagic 8-Ball

    “The CineMagic 8-Ball” – In Theaters 11/30/12

    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… ——————————————————————————————————————————————- THE COLLECTION When Elena’s friends take her to a secret party at an undisclosed location, she never imagined she would become the latest victim of The Collector, a psychopathic killer. The Collector kidnaps and transports her to an…

    Off the Shelf…'Smokin' Aces'

    With The A-Team hitting theaters next Frriday, I figured I would take a look at Joe Carnahan‘s previous actioner Smokin’ Aces. In the wake of Guy Ritchie’s Snatch, it seemed like writer/director Joe Carnahan wanted to try his hand at a film involving a huge cast with interweaving plots and laced with criminal stylings. This may have proven to be too ambitious as it just didn’t come to fruition as I had hoped. Along the way Smokin’ Aces did have a fair amount of good things going for it but overall, this was a let down.
