thehobbit

GRADE: A-

It seems like it was only yesterday that I was walking into the theater to see The Return of the King, under the impression that this would potentially be the last time Middle Earth would appear on the big screen. Seeing the third installment of The Lord of the Rings was my favorite theater going experience ever and is what inspired me to pursue filmmaking as a career. But alas, when it was announced that The Hobbit was to be adapted into feature films, I could not have been more excited. It was another chance to see the world I so loved up on the big screen again. Though I think the prequel trilogy is subpar compared to the originals, I found it harder to say good-bye to Middle Earth this time around as it would definitely be the last time.

Colbert Smaug

Stephen Colbert is known for his quirky  and entertaining interviews. Even when interviewing fictional characters he still manages to keep it as entertaining as possible. He recently interviewed the fearsome dragon Smaug from the upcoming The Hobbit: Battle Of The Five Armies and believe me, it’s worth watching. Check it out after the jump.

jurassic world

The first official trailer for Jurassic World (the fourth installment in the franchise) had been announced by Universal to be released tomorrow on Thanksgiving day. In a seemingly reactive move to the big Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer announcement set to break the internet on Friday, studio execs moved up the trailer release for Jurassic World today in order to squeeze as much buzz as they can over the next 48 hours. As for the trailer itself, I’m pretty disappointed. Hit the jump for more.

carell_tatum_foxcatcher

Grade: A-

With Foxcatcher, Bennett Miller and his three lead actors, Channing Tatum, Steve Carell and Mark Ruffalo have crafted a bleak recollection of the events leading to the 1996 Foxcatcher murders. The real-life story involves millionaire John du Pont and olympic wrestling champions and brothers Dave and Mark Schultz. Bennett, whose previous two films Capote and Moneyball also dealt with real stories, chose to set the story in the late Reagan era. He strips the story of all unnecessary characters, choosing to focus solely on the central trio. Unlike most real-life murder stories, the goal here is not to give you all the facts, but to show you the inevitability of the crime by providing a path into the minds involved. The result is a diluted, cold study that demands a lot from its audience but rewards them with magnetic performances and important, if distant, insight.

Peanuts The Movie

When I was a kid, Peanuts was the reason I read the newspaper. As an adult I have more of an admiration for not just the comics, but the TV specials too. A Charlie Brown Christmas is one of the greatest holiday programs of all time. Next Christmas we’ll be getting a updated Charlie Brown tale. What will it look like? Will it be like the old TV specials from our childhood? Check out the trailer for Peanuts The Movie after the jump.

GRADE: B+

In a world that is becoming more and more saturated with superhero films (whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing is up to you), Big Hero 6 is a fun new addition to the mix.  Disney’s newest animated film based on the Marvel comic book of the same title is about a 13-year-old genius, Hiro, who forms a high-tech superhero squad with his friends and his blow-up health care aid to defeat a micro-bot wielding villain.
