'Re-Wire' trailer

"This machine will re-wire you. Make you normal" I bet it doesn't make him normal. Not normal at all. In fact, I bet shit starts to fall apart and, guessing by the growl at the end, maybe creates more fear than it takes away.

Thanks for pointing me at these things today!

'Alma' animated short is CREEEEPY!

Think dolls come to life and wander around at night? Scared of being in a toy store at night by yourself? Then this is the animated short for you!

Watch as cute little Alma encounters a store with a doll that looks just like her. And then see what happens to her! It's creepy, original and awesome and all in a few minutes.

It's the perfect treat to watch after getting all pissed off from watching 'Dogs vs. Cats'.

'Cats vs. Dogs: Revenge of dumb talking animals'

I hate these movies. I hate animated, talking animals. What do I hate MORE than animates talking animals? Why, I hate REAL animals that are animated to talk, that's what. I think drug references, and Bond references and trying to cover up the fact they wanted to call it 'Revenge of Pussy Galore' but most likely couldn't get it past censors, is stupid. It's dumb. And making kids want to go see the "cute little animals" (that aren't cute when made to talk and move their mouths) so their parents have to sit through 80 to 90 minutes of mind-numbing stupidity, is stupid.

The entire premise of this movie, which I've since learned is a sequel, is that this ugly cat is trying to get revenge and dressed up like a puppy and infiltrated some house and now all the cats and dogs have to save the world, or some garbage.

Why does this anger me so? Because after a year of some really good kids' movies (UP, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs), 2010 gives us this tripe. And it's tripe people will go see and then they'll make more tripe from a different animal, if you like the metaphor.

'Alice in Wonderland' Trailer

Will I see this? Yes. Why? Because Tim Burton movies are visually stunning, always, even if they are nothing else.

Are there any surprises with this movie? Probably not. We all know the story. But, maybe they'll make it more like the original story. Who knows? All I know is that my eye balls like what they see. Weird, crazy. colorful worlds of strange. Exactly how I like my Tim Burton.

'Robin Hood' Trailer

I have always preferred my Scott to be Ridley over Tony. Why? Blade Runner, that's why.

Anyway, here is the trailer for the Russell Crowe starring 'Robin Hood' movie. Looks kinda awesome, but then again most everything Ridley does is awesome in some manner. you go.

If we work hard enough...we CAN succeed!

Alright, I've said it before. If you stop going to see crappy movies, they will stop making them. Case in point: Some awful movie with Robin Williams was scrapped by Disney after Old Dogs performed horribly bad. This is something I could have told them before wasting money on it, but whatever. Now, news rolls in that the sequel to Wild Hogs, Wild Hogs 2: Bachelor Ride (yeah...that was the name), has been scrapped as well.

Now, let's give it a go with movies like 'Chipmunks 2: Electric Boogaloo' or whatever the abomination with chipmunks that talk, go to school and hit on human woman is. This should be the mission of all parents and singles out there. We can't do this alone. Lie to your children and tell them the movie is sold out, not out yet, you missed it; whatever it takes to stop them from making live-action/CGI-talking animal movies. If we try hard enough maybe we can stop the Marmaduke movie I just saw a poster for last weekend.

I'd say to try to stop Roland Emmerich movies, but even though I hate his movies, I have to say...without them my masterpiece Code Name: Rainbow Brite couldn't have been a reality.

"That Evening Sun" Trailer

I was transcribing a show today and I came across this movie being highlighted. It.looks.awesome!

It's about an 80 some year old man who was put in an old folks home where he felt he was rotting away. He feels that if you died in your sleep they'd just roll you over and put someone else in your place, so he leaves. He goes back to his house and finds a family of white trash folks living there. They rented the house from the old man's son. But, the old man isn't giving up on the house and farm since he wants it. The father/husband of the white trash family wants him to leave and also appears to beat his daughter with a hose. Things seem to go downhill from there.

I really want to see this movie and I hope it gets wider release when it finally comes out.

Check out the trailers below. I have nothing funny to say about this movie, it plain looks awesome!

'Sorcerer's Apprentice' Trailer

Look! It's Nic Cage playing Nic Cage as a sorcerer in a stupid wig! I can tell it's Nic Cage because they character completely lacks any and all emotion whilst delivering his "lines".

The worst part of this trailer, which doesn't seem THAT bad overall, is the car that morphs from a beautiful classic car into a beautiful new car and then, for some reason, flips/jumps in a disjointed manner through a mirror that is placed in the middle of the road...on purpose and badly flips back on four wheels. Is it alive? Because it's behaving in a manner that would suggest it's alive. Also, the animation looked like shit.

Kids In the Hall 'Death Comes To Town' trailer

Holy crap! I haven't posted anything for no one but me to read for awhile. Now that my trailer for class is done, and I can throw it on here later, I can return to posting.

What a wonderful treat for everyone: The Kids In the Hall trailer for their 8-part series, 'Death Comes To Town'. If you are unfamiliar with The Kids In the Hall, I recommend you find some way to get to know them. May I recommend 'Brain Candy'? Because I am, and you should watch it and laugh.

This is a glorious treat for everyone!
