Trailer Review:
[Reviewed by: Alex Miller]

If after watching the brand new trailer for Priest you think to yourself “That reminds me of Legion, that crappy movie about fighting angels.” there is a reason for that. It has the same Director, Scott Stewart, but this time instead of Angels Vs. Angels it’s Priests Vs. Vampire Satanists. If they had titled it “Priest With A Shotgun” I might have been more interested. Vampire movies have lost all their street cred at this point and one more is probably the last thing we need right now. It’s in 3D too, but at least this is the type of silly action movie that might benefit from it. What I liked about the trailer is also what bugged me the most. It steals from good movies. At the beginning I could have sworn I was watching a Blade Runner remake trailer with the way the dystopian city looked and the futuristic outdoor elevator. Later it felt like those crappy Star Wars prequels with the sci-fi bike in a desert and of course the Jedi hood. Then it mixed with The Matrix to do a slow motion bullet-time fight scene on top of a moving vehicle. Plus anytime an action movie starts talking about getting expelled from “THE Order” or “THE Council” (like there’s of course only one of those and we’re all supposed to know what it is) you know you’re in for a cliché tsunami. The movie is loosely based on a Korean graphic novel. When I say loosely I mean like Lindsey Lohan looks tight compared to this. Basically they’ve changed everything. So yeah, maybe we’ll get some cool effects and a mindless but entertaining 2hrs but I wouldn’t put any money on it. At least it’s not Twilight.

Introducing new contributor Sydney Freeman, with his review of the new Edgar Wright comedy that everyone is talking about!

Edgar Wright returns with a stylish movie adaption of the cult comic Scott Pilgrim series. The story revolves around our hero Scott Pilgrim (Micheal Cera) who meets the girl of his dreams Ramona (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) but in order to date her he has to defeat her seven evil exes. The result can only be summarized by one word, epic. Scott Pilgrim is the story for our generation. A story that could only make sense to the MTV powered, iPod connected Nintendo generation. (more…)

[Update: Review Added]

The new Tron Legacy trailer was released today by Disney at Comic-Con! I wish I could say this trailer made me more excited to see this movie, but frankly that’s not possible. The last time I had this much nerdy anticipation for a sequel was when Matrix: Reloaded was coming out. Needless to say that didn’t turn out so well. The original Tron was groundbreaking to say the least, but honestly hasn’t held up well over time. I’m still able to look past how dated it has become, but I doubt most can. In fact, I bet most either haven’t seen the original or can’t remember it. Who cares if you get what’s going on in the new one right? It has awesome special effects, a ridiculously hott chick, and a nerdy sci-fi story. Did I mention it has awesome special effects? I mean that dude’s shirt has more lights than a football stadium. Why does everything have lights on it? I mean I know it’s a video game, but seriously. Is there a rave afterwards? What’s the deal?
