“The Good, The Bad, The Wise, The Wicked”
Here’s another TV Spot for Oz The Great and Powerful. I don’t think we’ve had this good of a look at the witches yet, it’s interesting for sure.
Promised Land was swept under the enormous blockbusters’ success of December, so little has been said about the film starring Matt Damon, Frances McDormand, and John Krasinski. For a simple drama set in the heartland of America, one that was written by the dynamic talents of Gus Van Sant and Damon, it seems the film would have met bigger acclaim for its themes and entertainment value. Or at least, the film should have lived up to someone’s expectations (films usually do). Why are audiences and critics bashing Promised Land?

Yet again, it looks like this isn’t particularly my kind of TV Show.
I really wish Netflix and Hulu would get original shows that I care about. Maybe I’m just dreaming, but it’s a fun dream. On-demand original content that’s good. That is the “holy grail” so to speak.
Oh, and also, whether Netflix’s doing or someone else, this trailer is available in an embeddable format from YouTube, which is nice.
Be warned this trailer does have some disturbing images in it. Nothing as bad as, say, the red band Hansel and Gretel trailer I posted a couple weeks ago, but it has the tenor of an R…Read The Rest
The visual effects of The Avengers were simply, outright stunning. I mean it was phenomenal work. And that work has not gone unnoticed. ILM’s work on this film has received an Oscar nomination, and it’s well deserved.
This is an effects reel from ILM about the building of the visual effects in The Avengers. It’s awesome stuff and any geek should enjoy this. I’ll assume that most of you reading this site are geeks in some fashion or another (if you are not, congrats, but you might still enjoy this video), so go ahead and dive in for almost 5 minutes of awesomeness.
If you were wondering how Whedon might be planning to make Avengers 2 bigger than the first Avengers, which was a fairly big, large scale spectacle, well the answer is, he is not planning on making it bigger. He thinks the answer is to “go deeper.”
“Don’t go bigger; go deeper.” ... “Now you can spend your time just digging in — and by digging in, I mean with a scalpel, to cause pain.”
That sounds like the Joss Whedon we know and (usually) love.
One other thing he said in the video that I thought was a very good point, very astute and well thought:

“Something I always say to…
Jackie Robinson was the first black Major League Baseball player. It also means he was the focus of much scorn, criticism, and racism.
If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s racism. So while I’m not a big fan of sports at all, I will likely see this film.
There does seem to be an overabundance of films dealing racism lately though. Not sure if I’m just happening to notice a lot more or if there is a lot more in the last couple of years.

Hulu’s original programming returns later this summer with our first animated Hulu Original Series “The Awesomes,” co-created by Saturday Night Live’s head writer Seth Meyers and Emmy-winning producer and SNL alum Michael Shoemaker (“Late Night with Jimmy Fallon“). In our second co-production with BBC via BBC Worldwide Americas, Hulu will also present “The Wrong Mans,” a comedic thriller created by and starring Tony Award-winner James Corden (“Gavin and Stacey”) and Mathew Baynton (“Spy“), directed and produced by Jim Field Smith (“Episodes”). We will also debut docu-series “Behind the…
Speaking of Del Torro, we’ve got a new Pacific Rim trailer from the CES conference going on right now. Normally I don’t pay much attention to such a silly conference where hardly anything good every comes out, but this year at least we get a good trailer out of the deal.
And yes, GLaDOS voice is still in this version.
As always, coming up with the release of Monsters University, Pixar will have a new short film to show us before the main feature. This one will be called The Blue Umbrella, and features a very photorealistic look that we’ve never seen from Pixar before. And The Wall Street Journal has a short clip from the upcoming short film.
Pixar’s shorts are always amazing and I’m sure no matter what look they go for, cartoon or photorealistic, it will be really good.
I also love this first comment I saw on the YouTube posting of this video:
