Movie trailers and videos, photos of celebrities and movie related news. This is not a movie exclusive site, so don’t expect much, but still, see everything and enjoy!
This is your one opportunity to do something that no one has ever done before, and that no one will copy throughout human existence. And if nothing else, you will be remembered as the one guy who ever did this. This one thing.
Gremlins was awesome, original, funny, scary. I wish Hollywood makes Gremlins 3 (I’ve read about it in some sites, but it looks like it’s nothing but rumors), though to tell you the truth, I don’t think Gremlins 2 was nearly as good as the original movie.
I also used to think that the girl in that movie was the most beautiful girl in the whole world. I was young an innocent, and it wasn’t until years later that I found out that same girl, Phoebe Cates, had done a couple of movies (Paradise and Fast Times at Ridgemont High) where she showed all of her features. She’s 43 now, but she still looks great.

I was looking for the famous pool scene from Fast Times, but I had no luck. Well, aslmost no luck. I did find this video, which is great anyway.
You will go to sleep. You will wake up. It will be as if those hours never existed
This is the story of Lucy, played by the gorgeous Emily Browning. Sleeping Beauty is a story of a student that takes quite an unusual job: she gets drugged, she goes to sleep. During that time, old men will seek experiences that require her absolute submission. Obviously, she has to know what happens when she’s asleep, and I’m guessing that’s what the movie is all about.
The premise doesn’t sound so interesting, but the trailer shows a cold and creepy movie, so I think I’d love to watch it. One of this year’s Cannes Film Festival’s Selections, this movie written and directed by Julia Leigh looks like one of those movies I have to watch.
Bonus: Sleeping Beauty, the site
The Trenches is an animated short inspired by Zack Snyder’s upcoming movie Sucker Punch. It briefly shows the human side of the zombie soldiers that the girls in the movie will be fighting against.
It’s a nice little teaser, but I really can’t wait for the actual movie, which is in theaters on March 25.
Bonus: Emily Browning – some scenes from The Uninvited
I watched a classic italian horror film yesterday. It’s La Chiesa, a 1989 movie directed by Michele Soavi and produced by Dario Argento. The plot is simple to follow: some templar knights kill an entire village that is supposed to be cursed, and a church is built over their dead bodies to prevent the evil to escape. Flash forward to present day, where several events happen that result in the demons finally appearing, and a bunch of people trapped inside the church.
I have to say that I really like the first part of the movie, where the knights go and kill everybody. It was beautifully made, and had a great and gory ambience. I wished the entire movie would take place in that time period. I specially liked the scene where a beautiful girl offers some water to a knight and gets killed for being a witch. That girl, whose eyes appear in the image I posted above is Olivia Cupisti. I assume is Barbara Cupisti’s sister (very well known for her roles in italian horror movies), but there isn’t really any information about her, as it seems this was her first and only movie.
I got bored halfway through, and didn’t really care too much about the movie. It seemed to move to slowly. Scene after scene it seemed like something amazing and horrifying was going to happened, but it never did. Maybe it’s just that classic horror movies are like that, they aren’t really scary anymore by today’s standards.
Either way, I have to say that this is one of the movies you have to watch if you’re a true fan of horror movies (specially if you are a fan of classic italian horror movies). So maybe you want to go buy the dvd: The Church dvd or maybe not, it’s your choice.
Tangled sketches by Lusc-Fire
So, have you seen Tangled yet? What do you think about it? Did you like it? Leave a comment here and let me know!
It isn’t in theaters over here just yet, and when it is, it’ll probably be available in spanish only (I hate that). Either way, I’m looking forward to watching this movie. It looks cool.
I really want to see this movie. It looks fantastic, and it has Olivia Wilde in it. I hope it’s a good movie, although I’m expecting it’ll be the soulless, dumb, bad kind of movie that Hollywood makes every time from something that has a lot of potential. Either way, it might be worth seeing it just for the special effects, and Olivia Wilde
Also, I don’t remember the first TRON movie. I think I liked it, but I was a kid. Maybe it’s time to rewatch it.
I know the Resident Evil movies haven’t been the greatest in movie history, but I have to admit I like all of them. In fact, I rewatch them from time to time.
I’m pretty glad there’s a new one coming out in September, the fourth in the series starred by Milla Jovovich. I don’t know if it’s going to be any good, but judging it by its trailer, it’s going to have lots of cool action scenes. I hope there’s a lot of zombies and big freaking monsters in this one, and they skip character development.
Jill Valentine (played by the lovely Sienna Guillory) is back in the 4th installment of the series. At least it seems like that, as she’s listed as part of the cast in the imdb site, and apparently, Milla Jovovich confirmed it via twitter. She said: “So to answer many of your questions in one fell swoop, yes! The gorgeous and talented Sienna Guillory is back as Jill Valentine in RE4!!!”. If this is true, then I’ll definitely watch this movie.
Time for more old movies. This movie was made in 1982. That’s 28 years ago. I guess that’s old, isn’t it?
Oh, Cat People. This is one of those movies I loved when I was way younger. It has the beautiful Natassja Kinski in it. That’s reason enough to watch it.
Malcolm McDowell is in it, too, which is awesome. And if that’s not enough, Annette O’Toole is in it, too. For the younger generation, she’s Superman’s mom in Smallville. But Annette is pretty young in this movie, and is damn sexy in it.
Cat People is not a masterpiece. It’s a bit entertaining, and I just like it for the nostalgic value. The plot is quite unrealistic and some aspects of it are just there just to provide some eroticism: there are people among us that can turn into Panthers….specially when they have sex…their problem is that they can’t turn human again unless they kill somebody. Irena (Natassja Kinki) is one of them; her brother Paul (Malcolm McDowell) is another one of these cat people. That’s it. There’s nudity, there’s blood, there’s dead prostitutes and wild panthers, naive cops and an unsatisfying ending.
Buy the dvd: Cat People
How wonderful! A lot of my favorite TV shows are back. I think I’m going to spend a lot of time watching TV (online mostly) during the next few months.
House is back and strong in its sixth season. The season premiere was great, entertaining, fun and sad all at the same time. I love this show, and it looks like it’s going to continue being awesome. I just hope Olivia Wilde continues in it. She’s so gorgeous.
Casstle came back as well, and I’m happy about it. The show is great. Nathan Fillion is awesome, funny and charismatic, and Stana Katic is such a great actress and so enjoyable to look at.
Flashforward’s first episode was pretty interesting, and it seems like it’s going to be a great show, so I’m really hoping it becomes one of my favorites this season.
Ghost Whisperer is my guilty pleasure. The show is so cheesy sometimes, but I just can’t do anything else but love it. Maybe it’s because of Jennifer Love Hewitt. She’s so cute and sexy, and her laugh is so contagious. And she’s great in the show.
Heroes and Smallville are back, too, but I’m not sure if I’ll continue watching those shows. Heroes has been a constant disappointment from season to season, and I’ve just kept watching hoping they could start doing things right. The season premiere was the usual Heroes thing, a bit interesting, and setting up the plot for future episodes…and that usually is a very bad sign. Smallville, on the other side, used to be great, and now I find it boring, specially since Kristin Kreuk left the show. The only reason I keep watching it is because I love Superman, so I keep expecting that Clark Kent finally becomes Superman.
How I met your mother is here again, and it’s as funny as always. I have to say all of the actors in that show are pretty good and pretty funny. The writing is nice and the storytelling is cool. It never gets boring.
Finally, I think I’ll give Fringe another chance. I didn’t like the first episodes from the last season, but I’ve been hearing good comments about the show now. I guess it got better.
So, what are you watching this season?
I saw The Astronaut’s Wife yesterday. It’s a good movie, with a big of a disappointing plot and ending, and with two great actors (as you can see in the photo: Johnny Depp and Charlize Theron). It’s weird to see Johnny Depp playing a normal person, sort of. Charlize Theron did well in the role of a wife who apparently is going crazy while bad things happen to her due to her husband. Sounds familiar? I thought so, too. It seems as if Charlize decided to reprise her role in The Devil’s Advocate, except this time she’s not married to an advocate (Keanu Reeves), but to an astronaut. There’s a lot of parallels in the story of both movies: a young couple living in Florida decide to move to New York as the husband gets offered a great job over there. The wife gets pregnant and she suddenly realizes something is not right; something is happening, and her husband is to blame. You see? I’m describing both movies there!
Go rent both movies, or buy the dvds (The Astronaut’s Wife for about $9 and Devil’s Advocate for about $7). I think Devil’s Advocate is a way better movie, and Charlize is better in it, too. Nevertheless, I enjoyed watching Charlize Theron as the wife of an astronaut.
There are four things that come to my mind when I think of Charlize Theron: She’s a great actress; she is an absolutely gorgeous woman; she isn’t afraid of nude scenes; her roles are a bit repetitive. Case in point was the two movies I just talked about, but you can also see her playing a sort of depressed woman with lots of psychological baggage, usually haunted by her past: see Sweet November, North County, Sleepwalking and The Burning Plain. She plays a woman with issues even in Hancock and The Italian Job. I haven’t seen Monster, but I suspect she also plays a very messed up woman there, too.
