Trailer Jive: WELCOME TO YESTERDAY (2014)

Although this time-travel dilemma film doesn’t star Tom Cruise like the trailer I posted a few days ago, it still looks interesting. Maybe it gave a little too much of the film away. I don’t know, but it grabbed my attention.  I definitely feel the spirit of Chronicle seeping through the found-footage style.  It also …

Trailer Jive: GODZILLA (2014)

I forgot to post this the other day. It’s the end of the year, and so many good trailers are coming out.  Even though the 1998 Godzilla film tarnished the brand, this 2014 version actually might have some promise from the looks of this…   Come May 16th of next year I guess we will …

Trailer Jive: EDGE OF TOMORROW

I love time-loop or time travel films. Also, some futuristic Halo-like military fighting does a film better.  And lastly, Emily Blunt is one of my screen crushes.  So with all of this mixed together, and hopefully a good performance by Tom Cruise, will make EDGE OF TOMORROW a treat to watch next year. The Plot? …

Trailer Jive: JUPITER ASCENDING (2014)

What are the Wachowskis up to now?  At first look, this super Scifi trailer looked pretty awesome.  Then when you start to pick it apart you start to see the clichés one after another.  There’s Channing Tatum as the mercenary goat-boy who is a killing machine.  Then you have the damsel-in-distress with that special ‘gift’ …

Trailer Jive: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Trailer

If you haven’t seen this amazing trailer for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, then allow me to give you a treat.  It looks like Sony is finally handling the franchise with the love that it deserves.  Mark Webb is back as director, and Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone return as Peter Parker / Spider-man and Gwen Stacy.  In this sequel …

Funky Q Review: PONTYPOOL (2008)

Zombie films are great! But when filmmakers take things in a different direction, stories get even more interesting.  28 Days and The Crazies were about people infected with some virus, but they didn’t turn into zombies.  They just acted like them.  PONTYPOOL has stepped things up a notch with its interesting zombie-like concept. The title …

Funky Queue Review: EUROPA REPORT (2013)

This Science Fiction thriller came out earlier this year.  I knew it was going to be on Netflix pretty soon after. The streaming company has been stepping up their game in getting limited release films in their offerings quickly. The story is about a team of scientists that travel on a space mission to Jupiter’s …

Trailer Jive: DIVERGENT (2014)

It looks like Hunger Games, but more based on genetics than if you can shoot an arrow.  A girl goes through a test that is supposed to tell what place she is to fit in a dystopian society.  But her results say that she doesn’t fit.  I guess that would mean she would get locked …

GSB Film Review: THOR: THE DARK WORLD

The Plot: Eons ago the seven realms aligned, and the Dark Elves tried to turn the universe dark, as it was in the beginning.  Not sure if that was dispelling all light, or just destroying all the stars in the sky, but they wanted darkness everywhere.  Odin’s father was able to stop them from using …

Trailer Jive: HER (2013)

  You know this is going to happen one day, right?  You’re going to get your new phone that’s hooked up to some Artificial Intelligence cloud, and ‘she’ is going to talk to you and tell you everything you ever wanted… plus clean your calendar.  That’s basically the foretold future by the upcoming film – …
