It Came from the Bargain Bin: Tadpole

Trailer Watch: X-Men: Days of Future Past

Piggy-backing on my comments from last week, if I were a more ardent fan of the X-Men comics, I’d be rightly pissed off that instead of Kitty Pryde being sent back to her younger self to warn the X-Men of 1980 of a horrific war that would spell the end of mutantkind, they chose to […]

Lincoln’s Movie Night: The World’s End

The World’s End Directed by Edgar Wright Written by Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg Starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Rosamund Pike, Paddy Considine and Eddie Marsan Well it was a day we all knew was coming.

Lincoln’s Movie Night: Elysium

Elysium Written & Directed by Neill Blomkamp Starring Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, and Alice Braga Rated R for strong bloody violence and language throughout When a director has done only two major feature films, it’s difficult not to compare them, particularly if they fall in the same genre. When one was a breakout, […]

Trisha’s Link of the Day: Hogwarts magic comes to old movie posters

Did that movie poster for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire surprise you? Apparently, this was a new online marketing gimmick in 2012 as Empire Online.com handily showed.

The Raid: Redemption sequel, Berandal to start up two hours after first film

If you somehow haven’t seen Gareth Evans’ excellent The Raid: Redemption yet, go rent it. With minimal dialogue, ridiculous fight sequences and an astoundingly bleak look, it’s one of the best action movies of the last year. And, according to MTV, Evans isn’t done yet. The sequel, Berandal (thug), picks up a mere two hours […]

Lincoln’s Video of the Day: An Unexpected Parody

If you’re familiar at all with The Hillywood Show, you know that Hilly and Hannah Hindi, the pair of clever sisters behind it, make musical parodies skewering pop culture icons, always with surprisingly high production values. Well, even The Hobbit wasn’t safe from them. By combining it with one of the most obnoxious earworms of […]
