Finally, the Total Recall remake has a trailer. Whoopie...Wait, Kate Beckinsale is in it?! Damn, now I have to go. We should all buy a ticket to see this fine example of true creativity and quality film. Not too sure how much of this post is sarcastic and how much is truly sincere. But I'm really going to see it.
If you guys saw The Hunger Games within the past week, chances are you saw the latest trailer for Prometheus. Just in case, I want to make sure everyone is on the same page by posting it here. I'm amazed that the trailers have revealed minimal hints as to being a part of the Alien series. Once we get closer to the release date, I'm ready to see some face-hugger footage or at least a bit more than some nasty slime.

Seeing as I was in New York last week and that I'm a huge Seinfeld fan, certain adventures had to take place. Yes, I found the original diner that a majority of Seinfeld takes place in. I also found the famous 'black-and-white' cookie that Jerry loves (if you don't know what I'm talking about you should definitely follow the link). But this? Someone in NY loves Seinfeld a little to much if you ask me.
Okay, anyone who has ever seen Battlestar Galactica should find the whole 'fracking' thing hilarious. I had never heard of it until last week but I can't take it seriously. Apparently, the real definition of 'fracking' is when people go and siphon their own gas from underground, or something like that. I guess it can be dangerous but seriously, that's what happens when you frack with things you don't understand.

Hey all. As you can see from my lack of posting I have been unable to update the blog. I am actually in New York City for the next week and already have a ton of new stuff that I can't wait to post about. However, that will have to wait for when I get home next Thursday. The city calls to me! See you all then!

So I guess I'm a little behind on the whole Lone Ranger thing but this morning I had my mind blown by the group of people involved in the project. Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio (Pirate franchise, Treasure Planet) are some of my favorite writers and Armie Hammer, who I'm sure is going to be the next big name, is the starring lead. Yes, that's Johnny Depp next to him as Tonto but I think this movie is going to be much more than some action-packed, big budget blockbuster (say that three times fast).
The cast is pretty much transferred over from the Pirates franchise (Gore Verbinski is directing as well) and I feel that this movie will have the same feel as the first Pirates film did. We have a fresh new idea based of a fairly popular series and while I can't say anything about the likely sequels already lined up for Lone Ranger, the first one shouldn't disappoint.
Sidenote: does anyone else think it's weird that Armie Hammer is also the heir to the big Arm and Hammer fortune? I mean, how cocky was his dad to name his son Armand Hammer? I feel for the poor guy.

Soooo excited for Frankenweenie and here's why:
This video is just a slideshow but the whole film can be viewed on Youtube. Tim Burton made Frankenweenie around the 80s and I definitely remember watching it when I was super little. It's only a half hour long but it is definitely typical Tim Burton. And even though this new one looks exactly like The Corpse Bride I'm still excited to see him go back to his roots.

I absolutely adore Sam Rockwell but I definitely didn't notice how many movies he has been able to dance in. Coincidence? Who knows? I'm willing to bet he tries a few moves with every film in hopes that it will make it to the final cut.

Tim Burton has a new film coming out and it has the 'oh-so-mysterious' title of "Dark Shadows." His usual actors will star (Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter) as well as some new ones (Michelle Pfeiffer and Cloe Moretz) and the whole group should make this one awesome film. Here's the quickest description I can find so far:
"A gothic-horror tale centering on the life of vampire Barnabas Collins and his run-ins with various monsters, witches, werewolves and ghosts. Based on the cult TV series."Okay, so the whole vampire thing is getting out of hand. Really out of hand. This being said, I feel that when Tim Burton decides to address a subject it ends up standing in a world of its own. Also, I've never heard of the "cult TV series" that IMDB refers to but Seth Grahame-Smith (author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies as well as Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter) is working on the screenplay, which is bound to make it unique. Another plus is that the film is scheduled to come out this May so it isn't like we have a long wait ahead of us. Kind of surprised by the lack of trailer, though. More pictures and a much more detailed plot can be found on comingsoon.net
1 (781) 452-4077. It's the Hogwarts Hotline. I thought it would be more fun not to tell you guys where it leads (as I had no idea the first time I dialed it) but I'm pretty sure no one would trust me enough to actually dial. It's awesome to see the millions of things that have spawned from the Harry Potter universe and even though this isn't the most interesting thing around it still made me giggle.
Wow. I take a weekend off and I come back with over 5000 views? Quite impressive. I feel not worthy after spending all weekend doing absolutely nothing to improve the site. Hell, I even left Monday blank! I will partially blame this on my extra late discovery of the game Borderlands as it ruled a majority of my time but also blame it on plain lazyness. Guess this is a wake up call to devote more time to you devoted people. I promise to keep the gaming to a minimum. It's just so hard!

Burning Man is amazing. Most of you have heard of it but I have never met someone who has actually been there. For an 8-week event, the tickets are only around $300 and it's killing me that I can't make it this year. This is one for the bucket list. Has the video peaked your interest?

The action sequences in this movie are going to be insanely awesome. Here are my doubts: this one movie has to deal with an ensemble cast of characters who for the most part all have had movies of their own. They each need to have equal screen time and also have to be grouped up fairly quickly in order to get into the actual plot of stopping Loki.
How is this movie going to be able to deal with the idiosyncrasies of each character while still having them function as a team and still manage not to feel rushed. I'm just going to hope the film ends up being super long in order to incorporate everything. And what the hell is with the decepticon snake thing at the end?
