As I noted when I went to Sundance, Like Crazy was the film I wanted to see most coming out of the festival. Click here for the original post. It may be the Blue Valentine of this year. A love story, also total improv. And the first trailer just dropped this week. Full Story

Superman with an open mind

They’ve just released the first shot of Henry Cavill as Superman. I guess he’s supposed to be, like, breaking apart steel or something. You like it? I dunno. I generally don’t find men in leotard attractive, even if there’s mutant strength and a cape involved so... it’s hard for me to say as I might not be the target demographic. Full Story

One Day I’m nervous about

Jim Sturgess was at Jimmy Kimmel yesterday promoting One Day. The movie will be released on August 19th. This makes me nervous. I just... I feel really uneasy about the date change (was originally supposed to be July, and obviously July 15th would have been ideal) and then you know my thoughts on the first trailer Full Story

Over-breathing through a sentence

Went to see Crazy, Stupid, Love yesterday. Wasn’t my favourite. Gosling was hot, I guess, but I used up all the energy I could have spent enjoying him being annoyed by the girl (Analeigh Tipton) who plays Jessica, the babysitter. Jacek couldn’t deal with her either. At one point he leaned over, “Jesus Christ, this girl is the most irritating overactor”. Full Story

Written by Sarah The winner is... ATTACK THE BLOCK! When Lainey asked me to write up the box office for the weekend that was with Cowboys and Aliens and The Smurfs, I said, “Sure,” but I was thinking, “How can I make this about Attack the Block?” Because everything is about Attack the Block right now. Full Story

Crazy, Stupid, Stupid, Crazy

Written by Duana Now this is a story all about how you probably shouldn’t take me to the movies if the movie’s not a slam-dunk. Because I might be embarrassing. Sasha and I went to see Crazy, Stupid, Love (which I’m not sure needs that second comma AT ALL) with two friends of ours on opening night. Full Story

Handpicked by George

The Ides of March trailer was released yesterday after the poster came out the day before. George Clooney is the director and he adapted the screenplay with Grant Heslov but even though Clooney is the big name, the story is all Ryan Gosling. It all hinges on Ryan Gosling. And this is why George Clooney handpicked Ryan Gosling. Full Story

Bad trailer but it offers a glimpse

When you woke up today, did you think I’d compliment Robert Pattinson OVER Colin Firth? I am about to. So, in our ongoing review of new trailers I may have missed over the last week or so due to sh-tty wireless at Comic-Con, this is the one they’ve released for Bel Ami due in theatres.. Full Story

More trailer analysis... I don’t actually know how a movie like New Year’s Eve keeps making itself. But now you know why Ashton Kutcher went back to television. Even he couldn’t stand this sh-t anymore. Let’s put the tall guy and the short girl together and make them kiss! What is it? It’s a series of cute formulaic movie scenes with so called Chick Lit snappy dialogue. Full Story

Un-Hear! Un-Hear!

Remember when Halle Berry won her Oscar and then made a piece of sh-t called Catwoman? Well, Main Street isn’t Catwoman, not quite, but, um, as Laura wrote to me yesterday, “I think that Colin Firth made a big, big mistake.” This trailer... it’s horrifying. More specifically, the accents, they are HORRIFYING. Full Story

The same day that George Clooney’s The Ides of March was confirmed for the Toronto International Film Festival, they also released the first poster. Thoughts? I’m all over it. Totally into it. Is it a copy of something? I’m sure you know-it-alls will tell me. But even if it is, I think it’s wonderful anyway. Full Story
