The Coen Brothers' A Serious Man Trailer

I have to say I am a fan of the Coen brothers Joel and Ethan. And I cannot express how excited I am for their new film, A Serious Man. Their last film, Burn After Reading, wasn't well received here in Malaysia but I loved it and thought it was hilarious. And I bet A Serious Man will have the same effect. Both on the general Malaysian audience and me.

A black comedy set in 1967 and that centers on Larry Gopnik, a Midwestern professor who watches his life unravel when his wife prepares to leave him because his inept brother won't move out of the house.

The trailer in itself is brilliant already. And it doesn't give too much away and most probably won't be one of those cases where the trailer is better than the film proper. Like I said earlier, I cannot be more excited for this movie. Check out the trailer I've embedded below.

A Serious Man gets a limited release in the USA October 6 so don't expect the film to hit Malaysian shores this year. In fact, don't expect it to hit our shores at all. That way, if it ever does, it'll be a bonus.

The Hurt Locker Review

I just saw The Hurt Locker and I thought I’d share some of my thoughts on the film. The movie is basically an Iraq war film. But it’s not just any war film; it follows the everyday missions of a bomb squad and it’s bomb disarming specialist, Staff Sergeant William James (Jeremy Renner), based in Baghdad.


I liked the film quite a bit but thought some scenes were a little too unrealistic. And to add to that, the hero of the movie was being too much of a hero, verging on superheroism. If you watch the film, you’ll get what I mean.

Bad points aside, the rest of the film was fantastic. I have to say that this is one of the most intense films I’ve ever seen. And the intensity hits you real hard right from the get go. I thought the opening sequence was the best of the whole movie. The entire film isn’t smothered in suspense because in between the action scenes, the soft and heartfelt scenes, if you will, are pretty dull. When an action sequence comes around, which is pretty often in this movie, it is gritty, riveting and gut-wrenching.

Having about three or four bomb disarming scenes in the movie that are all pretty similar, you would think that you’d already know what’s going to happen next. Amazingly that isn’t the case. I found my mind being blown a couple times during the movie as I was expecting the same scenario in the bomb disarming scene as the previous one. There is also one sniper scene that can only be described as being super intense. I was sweating just watching that scene. Absolutely amazing.


If I were to sum the movie up really quickly, I’d say its a must-watch because it simply is one of the most captivating stuff you’ll see in a war movie. Not to mention the great sounds that were produced in the film. This movie isn’t perfect, unfortunately, and has a few scenes where common sense just doesn’t apply. That could be a good thing though, purely because it makes for great fun.

I’ll give this one a 8.5 out of 10 Popcorns.

Tron Legacy Trailer

I can hardly remember Tron because I was a kid when I saw it but I do remember I hated it. Maybe because I was so little. Now that a sequel is in the works, I'll have to give Tron another watch to see if I hate it any less or maybe even like it now that I'm older. But for now, the huge news is that the official title to the Tron sequel is Tron Legacy and you can expect it to be released in 2010.

The movie, helmed by Joseph Kosinski, stars Olivia Wilde, Jeff Bridges and John Hurt. Check out the trailer I've embedded below.

Reception of the film doesn't look too good with critics saying the movie pretty much stunk and the general audience giving a very average rating on IMDb.

When a Canadian book editor working in the US is threatened to be deported back to Canada, she makes up a fake engagement and marriage to her male assistant.

So here we are with two movies of similar genres. It's very simple, really. You will want to watch
The Proposal and give Ghosts of Girlfriends Past a pass. Haha. And I'll tell you why. Here are reasons to watch The Proposal this weekend.

1. Although critics didn't really like The Proposal, they definitely like it better than
Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.
2. The general audience liked it better.
3. It made more money at the box office in the USA and worldwide.
4. It got a pretty good IMDb score.
5. And because I say so. OK, no. I'm just kidding.

First Look at Tony Stark’s Mark IV Iron Man Suit

If you’re a big comic book fan or even if you just watched the Iron Man movie, then you should know that there were 3 versions of the suit- the one Stark built in a cave to bust out of it, the prototype suit and of course the final red and gold suit.

A little under a week ago, Jon Favreau Tweeted that they had wrapped production of Iron Man 2. Just about a day or two ago in San Diego at Comic-Con, a picture of all three suits including a brand new one on show at the Marvel booth, was taken. Check it out below.


Very cool eh? Let’s zoom in a little bit.


Here you can see that the Mark III suit (left) that was in the last film is similar to the Mark IV suit which we will see in the next film. Also, the Mark IV suit is much less bulky and looks sleeker than the Mark III. How will this look on RDJ? We’ll just have to wait until the movie gets release to find out. And that will be May 7 of next year.


Here’s the Mark IV suit all by its lonesome.

Shutter Island Poster

This movie, I want to watch so badly. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Sir Ben Kingsley, Mark Ruffalo, Emily Mortimer, and Jackie Earle Haley as well as directed by an awesome director in Martin Scorsese, Shutter Island has had it’s Malaysian release date bumped up from early December to October 15 of this year. Check out the cool poster featuring Leo DiCaprio below. Also click here to watch the trailer.


It's 1954, and up-and-coming U.S. marshal Teddy Daniels is assigned to investigate the disappearance of a patient from Boston's Shutter Island Ashecliffe Hospital. He's been pushing for an assignment on the island for personal reasons, but before long he wonders whether he hasn't been brought there as part of a twisted plot by hospital doctors whose radical treatments range from unethical to illegal to downright sinister. Teddy's shrewd investigating skills soon provide a promising lead, but the hospital refuses him access to records he suspects would break the case wide open. As a hurricane cuts off communication with the mainland, more dangerous criminals "escape" in the confusion, and the puzzling, improbable clues multiply, Teddy begins to doubt everything - his memory, his partner, even his own sanity.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Teaser Posters

Prince of Persia has always been a popular video game. In following the current Hollywood trend of transforming video games into feature films, Walt Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer are producing Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, starring Brokeback Mountain star Jake Gyllenhaal, Gemma Arteton, Sir Ben Kingsley and Alfred Molina.

Dastan (Gyllenhaal) is a street urchin adopted by the King, an ends up going after the Sands of Time, a time-controlling artifact held by the evil Nizam (Kingsley).

Here are two teaser posters for the movie.

pop-teaser prince_of_persia_arteton

I was never and isn’t a Prince of Persia fan, purely because I’ve never played it. And I’m not even sure if I should be ashamed of that statement or not. Either way, the film is slated for a May 28, 2010 release.

Are you a Prince of Persia fan? Tell me if you’re excited for the movie.

First Look at Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger

Fans of Freddy Krueger and slasher films in general will be excited this, the first image of Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger in the upcoming remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street directed by Samuel Bayer. Check out the picture below. And the teaser poster further down.


If you have no clue as to who Jackie Earle Haley is, then the picture below should help you a little bit.


Check out the teaser poster for A Nightmare on Elm Street below. It hits theaters April 16, 2010.


District 9 Compilation Post

I have done a couple of posts on District 9 already but since Nuffnang are giving out passes to a special screening, I thought I’d blog about it one more time, including as much promotional and informational material for the movie as possible. If you want to see my past posts on District 9, click here.

Before I talk about anything else, watch this teaser trailer. If you haven’t got a clue what District 9 is about, this will blow your mind to the back of the room.

Now that your mind is probably blown, I can tell you guys what District 9 is about. The plot is simple. The movie is set in Johannesburg, South Africa, where aliens landed some many years ago. Unlike aliens in other movies, these aliens want to go home in peace. However, the South African government are preventing them from returning home. Instead, the aliens are held captive on Earth. They are quarantined and kept separated from humans in an area called District 9.

Let’s check out some of it’s posters and banners for their viral advertising campaign.

DIST9_TSR_1SHT_3 district_nine_ver3_xlg DIST9_BusShltr_3 DIST9_WndwShppr_27x40_6 DIST9_WndwShppr_27x40_7 DIST9_WldPst_27x40_4district_nine_ver14district_nine_xlgdistrict_nine_ver7_xlg district_nine_ver8_xlg district_nine_ver9_xlg district_nine_ver10_xlg district_nine_ver11_xlg district_nine_ver12_xlg

Since District 9 is shot with a fictional-documentary feel to it, the movie’s marketing department tried to replicate this feeling in the real world by putting up billboards and banners on the streets in the States to make it seem as if aliens really were living on Earth.

If you’re thinking you’re falling behind the movie scene because you have no idea who the actors are or who’s directing, no to worry because they are relatively unknown names. The movie is directed by South African native, Neill Blomkamp. He is the guy who was supposed to helm the Halo movie that has yet to become anything yet. People were speculative of Blomkamp and his abilities, seeing as he’s never directed a feature length movie before. So to prove himself worthy of directing the Halo movie, he’s directed District 9. The only big name in this movie is, of course, Peter Jackson, director of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Neill Blomkamp is supposedly Peter Jackson’s good friend and apprentice. Peter Jackson is producing this movie in support of his friend.

District 9 is actually based on a short film that was written and directed by Neill Blomkamp. Check the short film out for yourself below. It’s called Alive in Joburg.

So far, what we have seen from District 9 in their trailers and viral marketing schemes, this seems to be the most intriguing movie of the year, for me. With that been said, trailers really suck you in and may portray a movie to be much better than it really is. So we’ll just have to wait and see. Below is the 2nd as latest trailer for the movie where more is explained with some action scenes.

I am so excited for this movie, words cannot even explain. Here are some cool links that are associated with the movie.

Opening This Week: The Taking of Land of the Lost 123

There are two remakes making their debut on Malaysian screens this week. One of which I'd watch in the theater; the other, I wouldn't. Read on to find out what is which and which is what. Let's goooo!

The Taking of Pelham 123 (2009)
Starring: John Travolta, Denzel Washington, Luis Guzman, John Turturo, James Gandolfini, Ramon Rodriguez
Director: Tony Scott
USA release: June 12
Msia release: July 23
USA gross: $62,900,310
Worldwide gross: $67,779,996
Genre: Crime, Thriller, Drama
Runtime: 2 hours
Rated in USA: R for violence and pervasive language
Rated in Msia: 18SG
IMDb User Rating: 6.9/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 51%

When a bunch of terrorists hijack a subway train and demand a hefty ransom be paid in an hour before they start killing hostages, it is up to a transit operator to save the day.

Tony Scott teams up with Denzel Washington once again to do this remake of the original 1974
The Taking Of Pelham One Two Three. When you have Tony Scott and Denzel together, you can't really go wrong. Case in point - Man On Fire and Deja Vu. Actually, even if you just have Denzel alone, you can't go wrong. He is just a phenomenal actor, especially when he plays a negotiator, which is the case in almost all his movies. What I'm trying to say is that any Denzel movie is worth watching, including this one. So go see it this weekend but don't bring kids. Rated 18SG and R for violence and pervasive language. =)

Land of the Lost (2009)
Starring: Will Ferrell, Danny McBride, Anna Friel
Director: Brad Siberling
USA release: June 5
Msia release: July 23
USA gross: $48,608,305
Worldwide gross: $56,359,046
Genre: Fantasy, Comedy, Adventure
Runtime: 1 hour 33 mins
Rated in USA: PG-13 for crude and sexual content, and for language including a drug reference
Rated in Msia: PG-13
IMDb User Rating: 5.4/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 28%

Based on the 1974 TV series
Land Of The Lost, this movie is about a forest ranger together with his two children who stumble upon a mysterious land - a land that is almost forgotten and no one really knows about its existence. In his adventures on the lost land, he encounters strange creatures like the reptilian Sleestaks population and also the monkey people. [Cinema Online]

Will Ferrell is undoubtedly one of the industry's most popular and well-known funny men, up there with Adam Sandler and Eddie Murphy and the rest of the SNL comedians. But I've found it hard for me to like Will Ferrell. Only on few occasions I've found his sense of humor entertaining, like in
Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Blades of Glory and Step Brothers. All the other times, even on SNL, I've found it hard to like his funny mojo. From what I've seen in the trailer for Land of the Lost, it looks like its going to be classic, goofy Will Ferrell. As far as the general reception of the movie went, it got panned by movie critics and did not do well at the box office. Although this movie might have its funny moments, I have a feeling that the majority of the movie will be smothered with incredibly unfunny, awkward and crude stuff. If that's your kind of thing, by all means catch the movie this weekend. I, for one, though, would rather jump on the Pelham 123 train and get held hostage by John Travolta and get rescued by the man himself, Denzel. But that's just me.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Review

harry-potter-daniel-radcliffe-half-blood-prince[This review contains spoilers]

The sixth Harry Potter book is by far the best of the series. And now, the sixth Harry Potter movie is my favorite and best of the franchise so far. Quite simply, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is one of the best movies of the past seven months. Let me try to tell you why I think so.

WARNING: If you have not followed the franchise, I highly recommend you watch the previous five movies before you enjoy this one. If you plan on watching Half-Blood Prince without having a shred of Potter knowledge in you, you will not only have absolutely no idea what is going on, but you will also have spoiled the wonderful experience that is the Harry Potter experience. Just to give you some perspective, an item from book/movie 2, Chamber of Secrets, is talked about in book/movie 6 Half-Blood Prince. What I’m saying is that Half-Blood Prince cannot be enjoyed if you have not seen the previous movies.

Lord Voldemort is back and is building his army. Back at school, in his 6th year, Harry is instructed by Professor Dumbledore to obtain precious information from the new Professor Horace Slughorn. Information that will prove crucial in the attempt to defeat the Dark Lord.


As usual, the music of the movie hits you right from the get-go. As we’ve gone from the first movie, to the sixth one, the music has gotten much darker and more haunting but at times very dreamy and warm. It’s good that by just the music alone, the aspect of the joy of being at Hogwarts, this fantastic and magical place, is preserved in spite of the plot taking a very dark turn.

This movie, like many others, is not perfect. But what flaws it has is incredibly smothered by the sheer brilliance of the storyline. I guess that’s why J.K. Rowling is the richest lady in Britain. Maybe it’s because its been a while since I read Half-Blood Prince, but I was so compelled by the storytelling ability of the movie, I could not stop wanting to know what was going to happen next. Most of the previous movies, especially the first two, had extremely chopped up, directionless and episodic ways of interpreting the story. Half-Blood Prince is nothing like that. The movie flows beautifully from event to event without seeming static. There is less focus on the normal everyday magical stuff that really wowed us back in the first few movies. This allows the movie to have a firm direction, more focus on the essential parts of the story and lead the audience appropriately.


In Half-Blood Prince, we really see a lot of Tom Felton as the plot follows Draco Malfoy very closely. It is very obvious that his acting has improved dramatically and he’s matured a great deal. Unfortunately, I can’t really say the same for Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), who in my opinion, is not a very good actor, although he does have a very good scene where he drinks the Felix Felicis (read the book or watch the movie to know). I can see Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) having a relatively successful comical acting career ahead of him and as for Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), she seems to be a fan favorite and has decent acting skills. Along with Tom Felton, I was most impressed with Michael Gambon’s (Professor Albus Dumbledore) and Alan Rickman’s (Professor Severus Snape) acting in the film.

The way this film was shot was nothing less than spectacular. I believe the Potter films were all shot in Scotland and if the film failed as a Potter film, it could double as a “Visit Scotland” promotional video. Some shots of the scenery as just incredibly breathtaking. And this only contributes to the fantasy of Harry Potter. However, I did spot some scenes that I could tell was shot in front of a green screen.


The special effects of the movie as a whole is undoubtedly very good and believable, but as always, it could have been better. What really caught me was the cinematography of the film and the colors that are used. Basically, there are two sets of color schemes. When it was needed, the film is covered in grey, green and black, making the thoughts of Voldemort, cold, evil and Slytherin pop into mind. On the other hand whenever gold and red engulf the screen, it really transmits the feeling of warmth, joy, good and Gryffindor. I guess this is typical in all the other Potter movies, but it really got to me in this film and I loved it.

Half-Blood Prince is first and foremost an action-adventure and fantasy movie but it is also a very big romance movie. In this movie we see Harry, Ron and Hermione fall in love. David Yates does well in unveiling the relationships at the right time but leaves little traces and hints throughout the whole film. The romance in this film may be nice and sweet and yada yada yada, but I doubt it will be winning any Twilight fan girls (and fanbois?) any time soon.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2008)Bonnie Wright and DANIEL RADCLIFFE

To describe Half-Blood Prince in one sentence, it is like Order of the Phoenix, except an astronomically better movie. Being one, I can safely say that Potter fan s all over the world will be satisfied, if not extremely happy with this movie. As for the general audience, I cannot say because like I said before, nobody can sit through this film without having already seen the previous five.

I loved the movie. It is highly recommendable. Take your whole family, although the young ones as well as the old ones would probably need some explaining to. I have to say that this is my third favorite film of the year and second of the summer. I can barely wait for the next two films which are, unfortunately, a year and a half and two years away, respectively.

I give Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince 8/10 Popcorns

Highly recommendable.

Full Trailer for District 9 is Awesome!

My mind was already blown after seeing the teaser trailer for Neill Blomkamp's debut project, District 9. Now, the full trailer for District 9 has been released and it is covered in awesome sauce! I've embedded it below so check it out.

The movie uses a fictional documentary style and revolves around the city of Johannesburg, South Africa. Aliens have come to our planet and our now residing in a quarantined area of Jo'burg. Against the aliens' wishes, they aren't allowed to return home by the South African government. The aliens are forced to live on Earth but are not allowed to mix with humans.

If you have not seen the teaser trailer, I strongly advise you watch it before watching the trailer below. In this trailer, the motives for keeping the aliens here are a little clearer and there are more action scenes. Check it out for yourself. Enjoy!

Produced my Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson, District 9 is set for release August 14 in the US. We in Malaysia will get it a day earlier.

Megan Fox Like You've Never Seen Before

You might have heard that Megan Fox is in another movie this year which does not include giant talking alien robots or massive explosions. Instead, this movie has a lot of blood in it. And I mean A LOT. Why? Because she plays a cheerleader possessed by a blood thirsty demon in her upcoming movie Jennifer’s Body starring alongside Mamma Mia breakout star Amanda Seyfried. Check out this very cool picture below taken from Fangoria.


You don’t want to kiss her now, do you?

When small-town high school hottie Jennifer (Megan Fox) is possessed by a hungry demon, guys who never stood a chance with her, take on new luster in the light of Jennifer’s insatiable appetite.

I’ve also embedded the trailer for the movie below. Enjoy!

Written by Academy Award-winning Juno scribe, Diablo Cody and directed by Karyn Kusama, Jennifer’s Body opens in US theaters September 18. We in Malaysia will get this horror comedy October 29.

Another Glorious Inglourious Basterds Poster

A new poster for Quentin Tarantino’s new film is on the web. It features Brad Pitt standing on top of a pile of dead Nazi soldiers. This has to be my favorite poster yet. What’s yours? Check it out.


Die deutsche Poster für einen Christmas Carol ist genial

No I don’t know German. The Internet does wonders you know? What I do know is that the German poster for Robert Zemeckis’ A Christmas Carol is very, very cool. It features a beautifully designed outline of Jim Carrey’s motion-captured face created by the flames of a candle which has a face and arms. Weird. Anyhoo, check it out for yourself below.


Expect A Christmas Carol to be in theaters November 19.


Opening This Week: Public Enemies Obsessed with Duplicity

This week we have the Johnny Depp as John Dillinger, Beyoncé in her first big, non-musical role and Clive Owen in a thriller with Julia Roberts. Let's gooo!

Public Enemies (2009)
Starring: Johnny Depp, Christian Bale, Marion Cotillard
Director: Michael Mann
USA release: July 1
Msia release: July 9
USA gross: $41,044,000
Worldwide gross: $46,344,000

Runtime: 2 hours 20 mins
Rated in USA: R for gangster violence and some language
Rated in Msia: 18SG
IMDb User Rating: 8.1/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 65%

Set in the 1930s,
Public Enemies is a film adaptation from Bryan Burrough's book "Public Enemies: America's Greatest Crime Wave and the Birth of the FBI, 1933-34." The story unfolds during America's Great Depression Era with the focus of FBI agent, Melvin Purvis trying to stop notorious American gangsters like John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson and Pretty Boy Floyd. [Cinema Online]

I know a lot of girls love Johnny Depp but I must say I'm a big fan of his also. He is just a fantastic actor and I'm pretty sure he'll do a great job as one of America's most infamous gangsters, John Dillinger. And I'm also a fan of gangster movies. So this looks pretty good for me. I'm not too sure how many people will like this movie because its not a movie that would appeal to many. But if you like old school bank heists, shoot-outs and getaways, then this the movie you should catch. This is definitely not a movie for kids. Instead, take your kids or younger sibling or whatever, to go see Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs.

Obsessed (2009)
Starring: Beyonce Knowles, Ali Larter, Idris Elba
Director: Steve Shill

Derek Charles (Elba) is a successful asset manager, happily married and has a son. When a temporary assistant is assigned to him, she is incredibly attracted to him and tries to get him at what ever cost.

According to the IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes scores, if you're thinking of watching this, you might actually be better off watching
Public Enemies. Obsessed looks like the kind of movie you can watch at home after dinner or something like that. Don't waste your money on this.

Hope you have a great week!
