The concise critics

Doug? I was terrified of him. Everyone was terrified of Doug. I’ve seen grown men pull their own heads off rather than see Doug. Even Dinsdale was frightened of Doug. Dinsdale was a looney, but he was a happy looney. Lucky bastard. Now I understand where Monty Python came up with the Piranha Brothers. Tom […]

The Devil Wears Prada’s intern takes on Taxi Driver as a “senior senior” intern. Could be a train wreck, could be gorgeous.

I admit when I first saw this trailer (the first one) I went out and bought the book the very next day. Now I’m trying to decide if I should read it before the movie or not. On the one hand books are usually better (nearly always) and yet the trailer was that good it […]

Yeah I’m so there.

Categories: Trailers

Um… I’m conflicted. The premise looks good but it seems to go overboard a bit and not enough for it to become good again. Plus Kristen Stewart.

Categories: Trailers

Simon Pegg! But if you’re expecting a clever comedy then look again. This looks like an intelligent commentary on life philosophies. Awesome.

<3 Abigail Breslin

You want some good mindless action fun? Well it’s hard to go past the Expendables franchise. And number three looks just as much fun! Who are they adding this time? Antonio Banderas and Harrison Ford for starters. Throw in Mel Gibson and we can almost overlook Bruce Willis’ absence. This looks rollicking.

I do love me a good scary movie. Creepy scary is even better.

Categories: Trailers

I’m underwhelmed to be honest. But don’t even start me on the book…

Categories: Trailers

Oooh. This looks interesting though I’m concerned they’ve given away too much in the trailer.

Have you ever wondered what Groundhog Day would look like as a B Grade High School US comedy? Then wonder no more! (I have to admit I actually will see this – time travel/repeating days are on my Must See Movie List)

Categories: Trailers

Fascinating concept. “In a seemingly perfect community, without war, pain, suffering, differences or choice, a young boy is chosen to learn from an elderly man about the true pain and pleasure of the “real” world.”

Categories: Trailers

Wow. I can’t wait. This looks like an interesting little gem!

Eh… not sold…

Everybody’s favorite giant robots are back. Even better – there’s no more Shia and instead we have Markie Wahlberg. Thoughts? And if that’s not enough check out the stills:

Categories: Trailers

To be honest I normally hate anachronistic references in films but I have laughed at every single trailer and clip of this movie. I simply cannot wait. Check it out and let us know what you think of this new ‘tooth fairy’ trailer.

Luc Besson and Scarlett Johansson? I’m there. I don’t even need to see the trailer. (but here it is in case you need to see it)

I’m not a fan of remakes and I have been singly unconvinced about a good US remake of the classic monster movie. But I got to see some extra extended preview footage recently and I’m actually now really intrigued. Not quite excited but it’s much better than my previous feeling of ‘meh’.  

Categories: Trailers

I’m not convinced this is actually a movie. It feels like a parody of a romantic comedy trailer. These few minutes made me laugh but despite so many of my favourite actors being present I’m struggling to see how this could be funny over 90 minutes.   But to complete it here’s the obligatory happy […]

Okay so it looks like Disney ripping off the concept of Wicked but man Angelina Jolie (an actor of whom I’m NOT usually fond) really looks to bring it. I’m curious. Apparently Jolie also insisted upon the canonical ‘horns’ despite the studio execs being concerned they would diminish the star’s attractiveness and pulling power. Good […]

I normally HATE anachronistic moments in movies but perhaps I can suspend that rule for this comedy. Because it looks bloody funny. I’m already laughing.

Categories: Trailers

I’m going to file this under WTF… though it doesn’t look as bad as I first thought it would. We shall see.    

Categories: Trailers

Are we  running out of movie ideas?  Most definitely not… according to the creators of Zombeavers. I don’t think I can say much more about this.  The trailer kind of speaks for itself.

Categories: Trailers

Mick Taylor is back!  He’s brutal, maniacal and crazy… and is ready to scare away any tourist who dares to visit our Australian outback.  Will Wolf Creek 2 be just as good as the first?

Categories: Trailers

Wow. I haven’t been this excited about a super hero movie in… well a loooong time.

Categories: Trailers

The new Transformers trailer HOT OFF THE PRESS direct from the Super Bowl trailer! Exciting stuff. And shiny.

Categories: Trailers

Angelina Jolie as the evil Maleficent?  Perfect.  Magnificent even.  This new sneak peek trailer is bound to make anyone excited for the release of this revamped classic fairy tale.  Lana Del Ray accompanies the eeriness with her re-imagined cover of the tune “Once Upon a Dream”.  The extra touch of the Maleficent’s dark castle behind […]

Imagine a boxing movie about Rocky vs Raging Bull. Then watch this trailer. I’m unconvinced but seeing the preview screening shortly so watch this space for a review shortly.

Categories: Trailers

This should be fascinating. Both the story and what they choose to focus on.

Categories: Trailers

Saw this in the states recently. Good stuff!

Categories: Trailers

I LOVED the first movie. It was a delightful story and so beautifully made and one of the very few movies I believe work in 3D. So I’m a bit excited about the sequel. It’s interesting that it seems a little more grown up than the original but perhaps it’s aging with its audience. Either […]

Not characters I have any affinity to but the trailer looks fun and interesting. And I do love time travel… Okay, now I’ve put it on my To Watch list.

I love horror movies but, to be honest, the last decade or so has been reasonably devoid of decent horror flicks. Then along came Paranormal Activity which reminded filmmakers that scary movies are more about suspense than gore, blood and detailed monsters. Love them. So here are some clips of the upcoming latest PA movie.

I hated the first Amazing Spiderman and after watching this trailer I’m already concerned for the newly rebooted franchise. Seriously? Multiple villians has hardly ever worked, the Richard Parker storyline already looks forced and while it looks big on action and fx it rolls out cliched dialogue hinting at a lack of depth. To me […]

Ron Burgundy is everywhere at the moment! In cinemas telling us to turn off our phones, hosting TV shows (even here in Australia) and even commenting on the Doctor Who buzz in the lead-up to the 50th anniversary special. What could be better? Well, the movie itself but until then be teased some more with […]

Okay, this looks fascinating. It’s on my ‘to-watch’ list for sure.  

Categories: Trailers

We’re SO excited about the next animated Disney movie! We cannot wait. What do you mean you don’t know anything about it? Watch this now!

Categories: Trailers

One of my all-time favourite novels finally makes it to the big screen. I’m so excited I’m not sure I want to watch the trailer. (but in case you do, here it is)

Categories: Trailers

Well this is gut-wrenching. The legend of the 47 ronin is one of my favourite Asian stories (behind only the Monkey king and the journey west) and this looks so beautiful aesthetically. BUT Keanu?!? Now I’m not hating for hating sake. I’m not complaining it’s Keanu (though that’s far from ideal) – I just don’t […]

Cuteness overload? Well actually this looks like it’s got a bit of an edge.
