    “What’s New on Blu?” – Week of 08/27/12

    Whether you rent or buy movies, Blu-ray offers the ultimate in sight and sound. Streaming is convenient, but if you plan on watching the movie more than once, you need Blu. So, What’s New On Blu? you ask. Well, good, bad or indifferent, Go,See,Talk offers up a trio of titles that are being released each week. Check out what’s hitting the shelves this week… ——————————————————————————————————————————— A fleet of ships is forced to do battle with an armada of unknown origins in order to discover and thwart their destructive goals.

    Sweet Trailer…Taken 2

    No not Tekken 2, but containing equal amounts of ass-whooping, this is Taken 2, the sequel to Pierre Morel’s surprise/smash 2008 hit. Liam Neeson is back and this time even more lethal and intense than before. Since rescuing his daughter in the first film it looks as if he’s also managed to wrangle his x-wife away from her new super-rich husband. I guess that’s another of his very particular set of skills; skills [he’s] have acquired over a very long career. Enough talk, behold the full domestic trailer for Taken 2. While the first film ended in such a way you’d think it was impossible to continue the story, like we’re about to…

    G-S-T Quick 5 – Best Nolan Batman Moments (Leading To The Dark Knight Rises)

    Harvey Dent once said that “The night is darkest just before the dawn.” and tomorrow, so say the trailers, TV spots and WB’s immense marketing campaign, that Knight will rise. So instead of us putting up a CineMagic 8-Ball post since everybody on the planet is going to go see The Dark Knight Rises this weekend, I thought I would give Grady the day off and instead offer up what I think are the 5 Best Nolan Batman Moments in the first two installments of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. Enjoy the path to The Dark Knight Rises. ——————————————————————————————————————————————– At some point in life, everyone needs a little push and even though Bruce…

    Ohhh, Look…Poster Round-Up: Taken 2, Expendables 2 & More…

    This is a bit of a mixed bag but how could we resist putting all these promo posters of expectedly kick-ass films together in one post? Here we have Taken 2, The Expendables 2, some lower budget Sean Bean actioner Soldiers of Fortune, Savages, The Watch and finally, Django Unchanied. Also, there’s a bit of a surprise at the bottom for you fans of the drive-in movie era posters. It’s fan made and been around a while but still has a kind cool look to it. Enjoy!! Taken 2 stars Liam Neeson and will hit theaters this Fall on October 5th 2012. Stallone, Li, Statham and the rest of the World’s Most Macho Heroes team…

    G-S-T Review…Battleship

    If you feel the need to blame someone for the birth, production, and release of Battleship— as I do– look no further than Michael Bay. The proprietor of shining contemporary examples of big spectacle gone very, very stupid, Bay brought the “movies based on toy lines” movement to life in 2007 with Transformers; two sequels and a G.I. Joe film later (which itself is getting sequelized this summer), and that childish aesthetic shows no signs of abating in the near future. Battleship proves to be the loudest and dumbest toy-to-cinema adaptation yet (barring last year’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon), a soulless, pointless, hollow cacophony of trite cliches and boring…

    "The CineMagic 8-Ball” – In Theaters 5/18/12

    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 DICTATOR The heroic story of a dictator who risks his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed. Sasha Baron Cohen has no problem crossing the line with is jokes but that results in a split…

    G-S-T Review…Wrath of the Titans

    I, like Jonathan Liebesman’s Wrath of the Titans, am wracked with indecision. On the one hand I want to go to bat for the film on the virtues of its better elements– excellent eye candy, including, but not limited to, some eye-popping creature design– but Wrath’s tonal incongruity holds me back. There’s a place in the Hollywood ecosphere for fantastical sword and sandal films boasting either serious or silly makes, but Wrath can’t decide which of the two models it wants to follow and ends up existing as an unsatisfying halfway point between them; it’s silly, but not silly enough. It’s epic, but it’s not epic enough. If the film needs anything, it’s direction,…

    Sweet Trailer…'Battleship'

    Hasbro must be pleased as punch to see their toy lines expanded and adapted to the silver screen. Sure the plots to the respective stories may be contrived commercials but love them or hate them you can’t say you weren’t at least visually (or nostalgically) entertained. Next on deck, Peter Berg’s Battleship. Once a humble board game (that with or without sounds effects was a moderately fulfilling time waster) here we are with the 3rd full trailer for the film. For many this has been dubbed unofficially as Transformers 4 but that’s a knee-jerk reaction we should not debate until after you see this trailer (or read this ScreenRant interview with Taylor Kitsch). I mean this has…

    G-S-T Review…The Grey

    Editor’s Note: Go,See,Talk presents this review of The Grey from our staff writer Andrew Crump (of A Constant Visual Feast.) Have a look at what he had to say about Joe Carnahan’s tense survival flick and offer your thoughts below. Ten years after the release of Narc, Joe Carnahan has returned to where he started as a filmmaker with survival thriller The Grey, eschewing hyper-stylized shoot-outs and outrageous, impossible action scenes for something grim, grounded, and surprisingly poetic. While a film set in the Alaskan wilds feels like a far cry from a gritty urban tale of narcotics investigations, The Grey shares far more in common with Narc than Carnahan’s recent outings, studio tent-pole hopeful The A-Team and the Tarantino-influenced Smokin’ Aces. The…

    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 it doesn’t mean Crowe has lost it, they just didn’t work for me. That said, I like the look of the trailer and am eager to see more. Crowe plays a husband who’s wife has been arrested for murder and he’s planning to break her out. What better way than a post A-Team Liam Neeson…
