No words can describe the feeling I get when watching this trailer over and over again. If I could convey the emotion with no words I would. Oh well, I guess the next best thing is to just show you the trailer huh.
Eight years after the events of The Dark Knight, the terrorist leader Bane arrives in Gotham City, pushing it and its police force to their limits, forcing its former hero Batman to resurface after taking the fall for Harvey Dent’s crimes.
The new journey begins when young adventurer Sean (Josh Hutcherson) receives a coded distress signal from a mysterious island where no island should exist–a place of strange life forms, mountains of gold, deadly volcanoes, and more than one astonishing secret. Unable to stop him from going, Sean’s new stepfather (Dwayne Johnson) joins the quest. Together with a helicopter pilot (Luis Guzman) and his beautiful, strong-willed daughter (Vanessa Hudgens), they set out to find the island, rescue its lone inhabitant and escape before seismic shockwaves force the island under the sea and bury its treasures forever.
J. Edgar explores the public and private life of one of the most powerful, controversial and enigmatic figures of the 20th century. As the face of law enforcement in America for almost fifty years, J. Edgar Hoover (DiCaprio) was feared and admired, reviled and revered. But behind closed doors, he held secrets that would have destroyed his image, his career and his life.
The new Harold & Kumar comedy picks up six years after the duo’s last adventure. After years of growing apart, Harold Lee (John Cho) and Kumar Patel (Kal Penn) have replaced each other with new friends and are preparing for their respective Yuletide celebrations. But when a mysterious package mistakenly arrives at Kumar’s door on Christmas Eve, his attempt to redirect it to Harold’s house ends with the “high grade” contents—and Harold’s father-in-law’s prize Christmas tree— going up in smoke. With his in-laws out of the house for the day, Harold decides to cover his tracks, rather than come clean. Reluctantly embarking on another ill-advised journey with Kumar through New York City, their search for the perfect replacement tree almost blows Christmas Eve sky high.
This is a movie that I wasn’t particularly looking forward to until I heard our Hal Jordan would be played by none other then my favorite comedic actor Ryan Reynolds. Even after I read that marvelous news I still had little high or low expectation for the film.
THE GOOD: One story line that will never died especially in the superhero genre is the “unlikely chosen one is randomly chosen but somehow finds courage to overcome adversity and gets the girl in the end” This DC comic movie is no different, they used the same template but managed to keep the charm of the Iron Man. I loved Reynolds’s in the the role as Green Lantern, he was funny, sad, charming, and angry whenever he needed to be, I’m sure we can all agree that thats really all you can ask from an actor playing a superhero.
THE BAD: This movie suffered big time from two things. First, the pasing was way off, I guess this is the editors fault to some extent, but come on you could have shaved off 15 to 20 minutes off the movie and I wouldn’t have gotten bored once. Second, To much CGI!!! we live 2011 AA (after Avatar) and you mean to tell me we can’t make a better looking planet of Oa, the fake unrealistic colors (and I’m red/blue colorblind) took me out of the film and I found myself imaging the actors acting in front of a green screen with nothing there and the digital artist just filling in everything else Lucas style. I think the sense of realism could have been done extremely better, for fuck sake the ring even looked fake.
THE VERDICT: I recommend going to see this movie is you are a Ryan Reynolds fan, a superhero movie fan, and or a comic book fan. Other then that you will be sorely disappointed. With a 300 million price tag for this movie I don’t see it making back it’s money so be prepared to hear a ton of words like “disappointment” “failure” attached to the movie.
Didn’t think I’d get a sex scene in Red Riding Hood.
In “Red Riding Hood,” Seyfried plays Valerie, a beautiful young woman torn between two men. She is in love with a brooding outsider, Peter (Shiloh Fernandez), but her parents have arranged for her to marry the wealthy Henry (Max Irons). Unwilling to lose each other, Valerie and Peter are planning to run away together when they learn that Valerie’s older sister has been killed by the werewolf that prowls the dark forest surrounding their village. For years, the people have maintained an uneasy truce with the beast, offering the creature a monthly animal sacrifice. But under a blood red moon, the wolf has upped the stakes by taking a human life. Hungry for revenge, the people call on famed werewolf hunter, Father Solomon (Gary Oldman), to help them kill the wolf. But Solomon’s arrival brings unintended consequences as he warns that the wolf, who takes human form by day, could be any one of them. As the death toll rises with each moon, Valerie begins to suspect that the werewolf could be someone she loves. As panic grips the town, Valerie discovers that she has a unique connection to the beast–one that inexorably draws them together, making her both suspect…and bait.
