Mr. Link is a nice guy – very erudite (though his penmanship isn’t great) – but he’s alone.
Tired of living a solitary life in the Pacific Northwest, Mr. Link recruits fearless explorer Sir Lionel Frost to guide him on a journey to find his long-lost relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La.
From the makers of Coraline and Kubo and the Two Strings, Missing Link will be in theaters on April 12, 2019.
The Greatest Showman is a movie musical about P.T. Barnum – the founder of America’s first circus. Movie musicals are not known for their historical accuracy, but – considering that there are many biographies of the man which paint him as anywhere from an honest entrepreneur to a cynical con man making a fortune by exploiting the pain of his collection of freaks and oddities – this film is far too superficial. Except for a few exceptional songs…
Bring on the carefully planned heists that go horribly awry. HDNET is stealing September with a Labor Day Heist Marathon.
Eight great heist movies will air on Sunday, September 3rd and Monday, September 4th, including the original Taking of Pelham 123, starring Walter Matthau; Swordfish, starring Hugh Jackman and Hale Berry; Ronin, starring Robert DeNiro, and Layer Cake, starring Daniel Craig.
I hate this silly and juvenile idea people have that somehow giving something an R Rating will automatically make a movie better, or the only reason a film sucked was because it was PG or PG-13 instead of R. This has been one of the ongoing complaints from fans of Wolverine for years. Logan is the R-Rated Wolverine film fans have been begging for is finally upon us. But is it any good?
It takes less than half the new trailer (in either green or red band) for us to learn that the little girl that old man Logan and the aged Professor X are protecting is a very familiar character at a very young age – and that they might just protecting others from her, as well.
Note the amusing – and thought-provoking – way Logan ties in to the X-Men cinematic universe. Very, very clever indeed!
Logan opens on March 2nd. Hold onto your hats and check out both red and green band trailers after the break.
I just stumbled across the first trailer for Logan (for some reason, 20th Century Fox is the only major studio that won’t put me on their critics’ list).
Set to the strains of Johnny Cash’s take on NIN’s Hurt, this is a future Logan – a mutant who has gotten old in a world where Mutants are gone. A man without a purpose until Professor Charles Xavier gives him one…
Logan will be in theaters on March3, 2017.
Beginning today, Eclipse will be grading trailers the same way we grade movies. The Logan trailer is a great place to start.
Pan may be the origin story nobody wanted but it is certainly not the disaster I was expecting.
The idea that Peter Pan had to have come from somewhere is one that, I admit, I had never pondered, but Pan tells that story in a way that has much to offer for both kids and adults – though it doesn’t really achieve maximum impact until about two-thirds in.
