Lincoln’s Video of the Day: TED 2023

TED talks are consistently brilliant. I’ve watched stand up comedian robots, heard musicians debut new songs and learned about asteroids. TED exhibits the most interesting and intelligent people who have fascinating things to say about their fields, the world and the future. Sometimes further in the future than we think. And with that, I give […]

Trailer Watch: Alternate History

I’m going to start you off with something that is so high concept it’s literally in outer space. Bask in the glory of what you just watched. Space. Nazis. Ridiculous, yes, but Iron Sky knows that it’s ridiculous and might actually pull it off. Tongues appear to be firmly in cheek here. When American astronaut […]

Trailer Watch: Lockout is Die Hard meets Escape from LA…in space

If that headline gets your heart pumping, you are going to love these trailers. Produced by Luc Besson, Lockout stars Guy Pearce who gets the unenviable job of rescuing the President’s daughter from a rioting space station prison. Let’s not complicate things beyond that. The reason we have two trailers here is that one is […]

Trailer Watch: Prequels to be excited about

I usually try not to do two trailer posts in a row, but this was an especially big week. First, we had the sequels, and now, the prequels. Two great directors. Two great franchises. Two great looking films. Enjoy. Prometheus, directed by Ridley Scott opens on June 8, 2012. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, directed […]

Trailer Watch: Sequels-You-Do-and-Don’t-Care-About Edition

That title might be a little harsh to this first trailer, but frankly, while fun to watch in the ‘Wow-that-is-really-cool-the-way-that-monster-looks’ way, Clash of the Titans was a bit of a stinker. But no worries, we’re getting a sequel anyway, and one whose first trailer tops the ‘TITANS…..WILL…..CLASH!’ tagline of the original with the most non-sequitur […]

Trailer Watch: Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie

Will random access humor work on the big screen? Aqua Teen Hunger Force didn’t, but maybe the truly bizarre and celebrity studded Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie can pull it off. The show, which you either love or hate, is a sketch show, usually tied together with the loosest of storylines. It’ll be interesting […]

Trailer Watch:Rampart or, Woody Harrelson’s Oscar Bait

Despite the facetious title up there, this looks dark, well done and brilliant. Woody Harrelson looks great, playing a character with the worst nickname (Date-Rape Dave) in cinematic history and chewing up the scenery in the process. Director Oren Moverman (The Messenger) brought his Oscar-nominated actor back and gave him something new to work on, […]

Trailer Watch: The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins was a pleasant surprise for me. In retrospect, I should have read it earlier as the people who were recommending it were by no means devout followers of Twilight. However, I was wary of a similar story of forbidden love and annoying dialogue. I kick myself for this now. […]

Trailer Watch: Snow White and the Huntsman

Well I’m a bit surprised. For the most part, I’ve written Kristen Stewart off. I had no desire to see the Twilight films and Adventureland was merely so-so. However, I can say for sure that I will be seeing her new film after this intriguing and well done debut trailer. In the epic action-adventure Snow […]
