The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies

It’s not the full-blown trailer we’re all waiting on, but blow this banner up as large as you can and drink in all the Middle-Earth goodness in this look at The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.  If the poster is an indication of how epic the film is, December 17th can’t come soon enough

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins,…

Trailer Time: Star Wars Rebels Trailer #2 (Disney XD – 2014)

Star Wars Rebels

Less than a month to go until Star Wars: Rebels gives us our fix to tide us over until Episode VII.  I’m reading the prequel novel to the series right now “A New Dawn” and enjoying it a lot.  I think this is going to be a blast.  Enjoy the new trailer and the series will be here before you know it!

Minecraft

I have to confess….I don’t get Minecraft.  I do get the appeal of building things.  You’re talking to a member of the LEGO VIP club here (my wife wishes that was something I made up).  But I don’t really see the badly pixelated world of Minecraft as something to really spark my imagination.  Clearly I am in the minority as the game has done gangbusters on every platform for which it has been…

Top 5: Movies Released in September

Top 5

I don’t want to overstate this here or degenerate into Hyperbole Land (the nation’s sixth funnest amusement park), but September is a blasted wasteland of movie offal.  September is a dumping ground.  If your movie is being released in September, the studio A) knows it is a turd so large as to be seen from space and wish to bury it or B) the studio has no idea whatsoever what to make of your…

Americana in Film from The Reasonable Critic

Americana in Film from The Reasonable Critic

Movie Reviews, Movie Trailers, Video Game Trailers

Film is the most powerful artistic medium. Larger-than-life, bombastic, and ideal for transmitting messages. While that power is sometimes abused by directors, as a film enthusiast, I prefer to focus on the positive. Accordingly, I find that most films about America are patriotic; the films that criticize the United States usually contain a silver lining, and are the ones that don’t usually fail.

Katniss “Rebel Warrior” Poster for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt. 1

Mockingjay, Suzanne Collins

My reservations about how good the end product is going to be, The Hunger Games is going to eat the box office like a raisinet this Thanksgiving.  Today, echoing the six other warrior posters released, Katniss in battle garb, was the subject of the latest poster for the film.  The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt. 1 opens in theaters on November 21, 2014.

22-Jump-Street-2
22 Jump Street was just as surprisingly as much fun as 21 Jump Street and 23 Jump Street is going forward (announced just today).  How that jives with the end of the film, which flashes through every possible Jump Street scenario possible, who knows?  As long as Phil Lord and Chris Miller are involved, the stupid awesomeness will continue.  22 Jump Streethits stores on DVD and Blu Ray on November…

Killing Time: September 11, 2014 – 9/11 in Movies and TV

Each generation seems to have a defining historical moment that changes them forever. The Great Depression, World War II, the Kennedy Assassination and Vietnam, Watergate and then….what? The kids born post-Watergate were defined more by the changing technological world than by tragic historic events. The closest thing we had to a, “Where were you when…?” moment was the explosion of the space…

The rumor mill has had Chris Evans wanting  out of the MCU when his contract is up, but in doing press for the Blu Ray release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Evans doesn’t sound like a guy ready to retire.

“Who’s handing off the shield? Don’t take my job from me prematurely dude. I’m sure it’ll happen at some point, all good things have to come to an end. But I’m really happy playing…
