Scott Pilgrim vs the World Trailer

The trailer for the Edgar Wright's (Spaced, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) comic book adaptation is finally here!


Looks very promising! Seems to be pretty faithful to the comic book. The visual style sort of reminds me of the the visual style of Speed Racer (a compliment).

Edgar Wright's visual aesthetic is always pretty cool. The film looks better than I thought it would.

Looks good visually but Michael Cera playing Michael Cera again?

On an unrelated note, I keep trying to leave comments on your site but half the time, Disqus is down or something :(

Thanks for notifying me.

Meanwhile, a bunch of people, who haven't noticed that all comedic actors (and most other actors) always play the same role, are levelling this criticism at Michael Cera again.

It's one of those dumb-assed comments that sound half-way intelligent, but fall apart with a second's worth of contemplation, that kick endlessly around the great echo chamber that is the Internet.

I disagree Ben. While most movie stars actually do play themselves over and over again. Some of them at least attempt to have some variations here and there and try new things intermittently (even though they sometimes fail). I recently wrote an article about the possible decline of the movie star era on my site and the difference between movie stars and actors' actors.

For a young actor, Michael Cera is not even trying to expand his range a tad outside what he has been doing since he broke out with Superbad. I couldn't care less what he does but ultimately, most one-note actors don't have a very long career as he is getting quite up there in terms of age to play the awkward teen nerd.

For my money there is nothing cooler than the idea of a city folding in on itself.

Review: Anomalisa

Weird is rarely used as a good quality in film criticism, but few words so completely describe Charlie Kaufman’s work as weird does. All of his films are a window into his very particular worldview, and that p.o.v. is certainly unlike anything seen in pop culture. For that reason, Anomalisa became an entry on many most anticipated lists for 2015. That Kaufman chose stop-motion to tell this story made the picture an event. So it came as a disappointment when the film was one of the year’s more mundane efforts.

Being John Malkovich and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind have an energy and heart at the center that is not present here. Previous collaborators like Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry were able to temper the overwhelming negativity Charlie Kaufman occasionally falls prey to, but, this time, the writer doesn’t have a director to rein things in. In all of his efforts to create an experience that is both familiar and alienating, Kaufman may have accidentally created something host…

Ant-man Finally Casted?

It looks like Nathan Fillion might be playing a superhero afterall. After being considered for roles in Green Lantern, and Captain America,Fillion (most remembered as Malcolm Reynolds in the cult-hit Firefly) is reportedly in final negotiations to play Dr. Hank Pym in the new Avengers film. It hasn't been stated whether Pym would be Ant-man in the film, or just a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist, but we're holding out hope.

The Avengers hits theatres in 2012.
