New 'Godzilla' Trailer Will Make You A Believer

For me, there was always one big barrier in making a Hollywood Godzilla movie: Nobody takes Godzilla seriously, the fans most of all.  They know he's just a guy in a goofy rubber suit.  That's part of the people.  The goofiness is part of what gives him his personality.  Any kind of serious treatment is going to remove that, so how much hope does it really have?  Well, it turns out the answer is "a whole damn lot", if this trailer is any indication.

Dennis Rodman's Kim Jong-Un Bro-mance Inspires Upcoming Film

I didn't really care about professional basketball when I was a kid in the 90's, and I still knew who Dennis Rodman was.  If you're lucky enough not to,  imagine Michael Jordan crossed with Rue Paul crossed with that creepy homeless man who lives in that alley.  That's Dennis Rodman.  Lately, he's been making the headlines for visiting North Korea and developing a positive relationship with brutal dictator Kim Jon-un, who last made headlines for having his Uncle executed.  Now, you might be seeing a movie about it.

Movie Review: 'Pompeii'

Pompeii

Starring: Kip Harrington, Emily Browning, Kiefer Sutherland
Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson
Rated PG-13

 

Dear Movie 43 and The Host,

You may no longer be the worst movies I have ever seen.  There is a new sheriff in town.

That right there could be my entire review.  And believe me, it hard for me to not just leave it like that.  But I’m an adult, damn it and I have a lot to say about Pompeii. First though, I would like to say this is the second movie I have seen by Paul W.S. Anderson (the first being the equally awful Event Horizon).  Since then, the only time I’ve mention the lesser Anderson’s name is to either make a joke, or correct someone when they think he directed Boogie Nights.  Anderson’s movies, despite being the fodder for people who liken him to Uwe Boll (and they aren’t far off), continues to keep a presence in the film world.  Why?  His movies make money, more specifically; they make international money…lots of it.   And now W.S. Anderson gives us his biggest movie yet (in terms of budget) and makes an entire audience walk out of the theater, Charlie Brown style, ashamed they just paid money to see it. 

Walking into Pompeii, I knew what I was getting into; I just didn’t realize how bad the situation was.  The movie is equal parts Roland Emmerich disaster porn and bad soap opera storylines.  And for a film that cost $100 million dollars, looks like a cheap video game.   I might have been more forgiven had Anderson gone the way of Emmerich and skirted storylines for just lots of action and explosions.   But he clearly had bigger aspirations for a Titanic type grandiose story and there is a part of me that wants to give Anderson a little credit for attempting such a feat.   But that credit gets buried under the ashes of every bad move this movie makes.  It makes so many mistakes….so many.

Critical Hit's Month-Azaki Part 2: 'Howl's Moving Castle'

Howl's Moving Castle is, even by Hayao Miyazaki standards, and incredibly odd and obscure film.  THe bubbles of the plot are only partially delivered it to you, and when you couple that with the fact that it's a loose adaptation of an already strange dutch fairy-tail novel, it can sometimes be a bit difficult to get.  So, that's probably why it ended up leading to one of the more interesting episodes of StoryForge's Critical Hit!  Check out the video after the jump.

First 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Trailer Embraces The Weirdness

It's a new Marvel lineup, but Tony Stark and Steve Rogers are nowhere to be found.  Instead, we get Chris Pratt, a tree voiced by Vin Diesel, and an intelligent raccoon.  Needless to say, Guardians of the Galaxy is a considerably bigger risk than the movie about the Norse God.  After a few screenshots and a leaked trailer, we finally get what we were all waiting for: A full blown trailer.  And it doesn't try to hide its weirdness...for the most part.
