“The CineMagic 8-Ball” – In Theaters 11/02/12

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 […]

Ohhh, Look…Extended First Look At Les Misérables

I know many of us were prepared to accept that Lincoln would dominate come awards time, but we made an oversight: we didn’t let Tom Hooper speak his piece. And now he has. Today, Universal Pictures has released a four minute clip of behind the scenes footage from Hooper’s upcoming adaptation of legendary musical Les […]

Sweet Teaser Trailers…Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel'

With The Dark Knight Rises now in theaters, Warner Bros. and DC Comics have reached the end of Christopher Nolan’s fantastic and hugely successful Batman trilogy. As is the norm these days, just because the credits roll it doesn’t mean the story is over. Case in point. Depending on what theater you were in when […]

To All You 'Gladiator' Blu Ray Owners…

Hello World Marc Here: While I’m not much on A/V tech news this is movie related (and regarding one of my all time favorite films) so it behooves me to tell you all as no doubt it affects some of you cinephiles out there. Anyone who rushed out in 2009 and snatched up Paramount’s Sapphire […]

Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel' Adds Russell Crowe As Jor-El

Crikey!! While the Supes front has been quiet since the last A-list addition, out of left field comes the casting news of the millennium!! OK maybe not that great but certainly an eye opener for sure. And why not?? Russel Crowe, if you’ll excuse my French, is the effen man!! Variety has just released info that […]

Off the Shelf…’Master and Commander: Far Side of the World’

In light of the other more commercially successful film about swashbuckling, this Russell Crowe vehicle, I think, stands up to all three Jack Sparrow adventures and still comes out ahead. Further I think this is vastly under appreciated and although not as marketable or appealing to children as Depp’s Sparrow, it is still a solid and(at times) equally exciting film. In […]

Sweet Trailer…'The Next Three Days'

I read something about this a few months ago and while it sounded intriguing, I just forgot about it. So time went by and here we have the a trailer for the latest from Russell Crowe and Oscar Winning writer/director Paul Haggis (Crash). American Gangster and State of Play didn’t do much for me but […]

G-S-T Review…Robin Hood

In Hollywood circles, there’s been some constant actor director tag teams in the past, Johnny Depp,/Tim Burton, Nic Cage/Jerry Bruckheimer, DeNiro(and DiCaprio)/Scorsese to name a few. But if there’s one team that continues to impress, it’s the one, two punch of Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe. Well those two were at it again, this time to tell the story of […]

Sweet Trailer…'Robin Hood'

Well the day has come dear friends…the final trailer for Sir Ridley Scott’s upcoming Robin Hood. The trailer just before Christmas was good, the Super Bowl spots (although short) were better but now we have the best trailer yet…well, one would hope because it is the last before it hits theaters on May 14, 2010. […]

And for the icing on the cake, the teaser trailer…let’s hope Youtube […]

G-S-T Quick 5 – Hollywood's finest working (foreign) actors

I’ve often said that some of the best American actors aren’t even from America.  Without much more reasoning, other than I immensely like these actors and the varied parts the play, I present G-S-T’s latest Quick 5 list. Let me clarify, right off the bat, that this list is not some pretentious or whimsical list […]

Off the Netflix Queue…'L.A. Confidential'

I would say I am a sucker for anything considered a period piece and set in the American 30s, 40’s and 50’s.  There’s just something cool and almost mythical about the way people dressed, spoke and lived.  Technology was nothing compared to what we have today but certain things like a radio and TV in […]
