New "Shrek Forever After" Posters

The movie gods heard me. Leave it to Dreamworks to make character posters for Shrek Forever After and make them adult in some ways. For example, "What the Shrek Just Happened!?" In other words, "What the @#$^ Just Happened!?" I love it.

New "Iron Man 2" Poster

I don't know what's wrong with me, but movie posters these days aren't that appealing anymore. Well, this one is pretty self explanatory and looks like the first Iron Man poster.

New Poster for "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse"

This poster is so boring. For this to be the most exciting book and hopefully film in the series, I'm extremely disappointed by this poster. I know it's supposed to show us that Bella must make her choice, but I think it would've been more effective if they threw in Victoria and surrounded the poster around her. Bella already told Jacob at the end of the film version of New Moon that she would choose Edward when that really doesn't happen until this film. it looks like we already know the answer. I really hope they make a few more posters before the film comes out.

New Trailer for "Tron Legacy"

TRON LEGACY! Man where do I begin! This sequel looks to be an amazing 3D high tech adventure! Just the visuals themselves make this movie a must see! I am so glad they decided to make a sequel with all of the high technology we have now. I'm not gonna tell the back story on this one or give away the trailer. You will just have to watch it for yourself! Too bad we have to wait until Dec. 17th of this year to see it! ENJOY!

"Repo Men" Trailer

YES I'll take that one! That will be $750,000.00! For a Kidney!!! Repo Men starring Jude Law and Forest Whitaker is a futuristic action thriller about two men who work for a company called The Union. Unfortunately, The Union repossess organs from people who can't make their payments (man what a bummer if you don't have the money for your heart!) From what I've seen of this trailer it looks really good! I'm a sucker for futuristic sci-fi movies! It looks to me like Jude will need a transplant for a new heart and can't make his payments(bummer) and finds out what it's like to be late on a few payments! This movie hits theaters Friday March 19th! GO SEE IT!

New "The Karate Kid" Trailer

The Karate Kid! Hummm... Don't know where to start or what to say for this remake? The original is a classic from my childhood and I know I haven't seen this yet and probably will not see it, but I'm sorry there is no replacing Ralph Macchio or Pat Morita (sorry Jackie Chan!). We are in a day and age of remaking old films and re imaging them for a new audience, but this one did not need to be remade. The story has been changed around as well! I like some of the remakes that have been made in the past, but COME ON not The Karate Kid! That's all I have to say on this for now. I'm now gonna go watch The Goonies and pray to the movie gods that they don't remake that one!!!!!!!

"Alice in Wonderland" A Visual Adventure

I have to disagree with every single person who gave this film a bad review. Alice in Wonderland is Tim Burton and Johnny Depp's best collaboration together since Edward Scissorhands. I'm going to shed some light on the subjects that many critics looked over or failed to do their homework on.

Let's start with the visuals. This film is not Avatar. Stop comparing it to Avatar. Yes, James Cameron used new technology to create his film, but Burton is not Cameron. He's not a 3D kinda guy. He probably would have keep it in 2D if Disney did not ask. In my opinion the 3D effects were the same in both films. Burton is known for creating visuals that make him unique. That's part of his auteurism. He likes dark worlds that clash with bright worlds. He likes to put a strange person in a strange situation and make them a hero. Yes he likes his spirals and black and white stripes! The film thrived in the land of "Underland" ( Alice misunderstood the name and thought it was Wonderland) with amazing effects, costume designs and makeup.

The acting was amazing. I have to say I was personally impressed by Alice (Mia Wasikowska). I didn't find her whiny or boring in anyway. I found her quiet refreshing and ready to take on the world. Johnny Depp's The Mad Hatter was not another run in the mill character for him. Depp is a character actor, he never plays the same character twice. He nailed The Mad Hatter in ways I could never think of. The Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter) was amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed her childlike behavior and her selfish persona. As for The White Queen (Anne Hathaway) many critics felt she was trying too hard. I didn't get that vibe from her at all. I liked her odd behavior. As for all the animals, The Cheshire Cat, The Blue Caterpillar, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, The March Hare, The White Rabbit and The Dormouse they all gave the film extra excitement.

The film is an adaptation, which means it's not like the books. If anyone saw Burton's Sleepy Hollow then you know that it was totally different from the short story, but it still kept the original essence of the story. Burton's Alice in Wonderland is based on Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through The Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, but he makes the story into his own. Alice is not a child and she has been to Wonderland before. Burton based his story off of the poem "The Jabberwocky", which is in the second book. There film is like a sequel of the first two books and gives the story a resolution in many ways. Personally, he made an excellent adaptation because he kept the original characters and the plot idea, he just made a few changes to make it his own. That's why film adaptations should be reviewed as one with no comparison to the book. Directors are always going to change things because they all have their own auteurism.

Go see this film! It is a visual masterpiece!

The Tim Burton Secret

It's no secret that I'm a huge Tim Burton fan. Well I came across this video on College Humor, which should have made me upset that someone would mock the visual genius. I found the video extremely funny because they are absolutely right! Check it out!

New "Toy Story 3" Poster

I just love looking at this poster. So many toys that I had when I was a kid. I can't wait to see this!

New "Iron Man 2" Trailer

I really hope this one is as good as the first one. There seems to be some pretty cool scenes in the trailer so far.

"Alice" Breaks New Records

I'm excited to announce that Alice in Wonderland broke many records over the past weekend. I will have a review up in the next few days. states:

Walt Disney Pictures' Alice in Wonderland took over the worldwide box office this weekend, earning $116.3 million domestically and $94 million overseas for three-day total of $210.3 million! The domestic figure from 3,728 theaters marks the sixth-biggest opening weekend of all time and is a new record for a film opening in March, destroying the $70.9 million that 300 made in 2007. It's the biggest opening ever for Tim Burton (his previous top opener was Planet of the Apes' $68.5 million), the biggest non-sequel release of all time, and the biggest 3D release ever, besting the $77 million that Avatar earned in December. "Alice" is also the largest debut ever for a winter release, surpassing The Passion of The Christ ($83.8 million).

"Alice" took over the top spot in foreign markets from Avatar, which had been No. 1 for 11 consecutive weeks. Overseas, the film debuted at 5,600 theaters in 41 markets, which represents only about 60% of the international market. The $94 million marks the biggest international opening weekend ever for a movie released in the January-April period.

Alice in Wonderland also broke Avatar's previous IMAX record of $9.5 million by earning $11.9 million on 188 of the large format screens - that's an average of $64,197 per site!

"Shutter Island" An Amazing Mind Journey

So far this is one of the best movies I've seen all year.

Let me start with the story. This is the kind of film where I can only tell a little because I might spoil the ending. First of all, be prepared to wonder what in the world is going on because Martin Scorsese will keep you guessing until the end. I went into this film thinking to myself "yeah I'm going to figure this out before everyone else." Well, I didn't figure it out until close to the end. Scorsese has everything planned from particular images, people, places and things. It's just brilliant film making.

Leonardo DiCaprio has come a long way since his Titanic years. He's truly an excellent actor and I believe we will see a lot of him in the future. He's one of those actors who wants to change and try different roles. I was also surprised to see Mark Ruffalo in a decent supporting role playing Teddy's (DiCaprio's) partner. Ben Kingsley also gave a great performance as the main psychologist for the facility.

I highly recommend going to see this film. It's an amazing journey and it's fun to try and figure out the ending.
