Good Blog-keeping

For those of you who have missed my numerous subtle (and less than subtle) hints, I recently started a new film blog called 7 Films, 7 Days, in which I plan to post a film review for each day of the week for as long as I can stand it. You can find the blog […]

Movie Trailer: Tron Legacy

Tron: Legacy in HDTrailer Park Movies | MySpace Video Here’s a new trailer for Tron Legacy, highlighting the disappearance of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), the protagonist of the original Tron film. Flynn’s son Sam (Garrett Hedlund of Troy and Eragon fame) receives a clue as to his father’s whereabouts and goes in search of the […]

Movie Trailer: A.D.

Here’s an interesting little teaser for a forthcoming zombie apocalypse animation called A.D., from writer Haylar Garcia and director Ben Hibon. I’m a somewhat vocal critic of the zombie genre; appealing though it may be, the sheer volume of terrible films, movies and games featuring some form of the walking dead has led me to […]

Video Spotlight: The Third & The Seventh

If you’re not especially smitten with fine art and architecture, you’d almost be forgiven for overlooking The Third & The Seventh. At a whacking 10 minutes plus, you might think it a bit of an investment to sit through what is admittedly a very pretty montage of architectural shots overlaid with a gentle, haunting instrumental […]

Movie Trailer: Iron Man 2

Well, here it is. The first proper look at both Whiplash and War Machine. I think it’s safe to say that Iron Man 2 will deliver more of the slick, explosion-heavy popcorn fodder that the original brought by the bucketload. I just hope they don’t pull a Spider-Man 3 / Batman & Robin and leave […]

Movie Trailer: Alice In Wonderland

Well here it is, then. A brand new trailer for Tim Burton‘s upcoming update of the old classic, and it looks – for lack of a better adjective – rather timburtony. The usual suspects are here – Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter – alongside a strong and suitably kooky cast including Crispin Glover, Alan Rickman […]

Film Poster: Tron Legacy

Disney have released the first promotional poster for Tron Legacy, directed by newcomer Joseph Kosinski. The film stars Garrett Hedlund, mostly known for his supporting roles in films such as Troy and Eragon. The main character is the son of the original Tron protagonist (Jeff Bridges reprising his role), who mysteriously disappears near the start […]

Film Poster: Iron Man 2 (Whiplash)

I’ll be honest: I was fully expecting Mickey Rourke‘s Whiplash to skirt the wrong side of the ‘campy villain’ line in the forthcoming Iron Man 2. Previous images of his costume helped diminish my cynicism somewhat, and the above poster has completely blown it out of the water. It’s stuff like this that helps me […]

Movie Trailer: The Crazies

divide George Romero’s original The Crazies was a characteristically allegorical piece regarding a small town struck down with a highly infectious biological weapon that sends ordinarily peaceful folk into a psychotic, murderous rage. The focus was divided between the actions of a zealous military force attempting to control the outbreak, and a number of survivors […]

Film Poster: Smash Cut

Sasha Grey (a name I’m guessing more men than women will recognise) continues her foray into bona fide acting with Smash Cut, a manic comedy-horror from cult Canadian director Lee Demarbre. The film stars several luminaries of the slasher/exploitation genre, and with a plot that centres on a horror movie director whose severed limb ‘props’ […]
