William Fichtner You Are NOT The Shredder! The New Trailer for TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014


The posters are all here and now the trailer has been revealed. It’s really the first trailer where we get to see all the characters up close and the CGI is very noticeable; if that will be the worst thing about this movie is yet to be answered. One item from the trailer that was especially interesting was the reveal that William Fichtner, who was thought to be playing Shredder, is NOT Shredder. He is seen talking to someone in the shadows (obviously) who then goes mental with the sharp suit. So, one less thing to be confused about.

Here’s the official synopsis for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles:

The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens in theaters on August 8th 2014, watch the new trailer below:

The Honest Trailer for TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN Will Make You Angry All Over Again

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014


Transformers: Age of Extinction opens next week so what better time to relive the worst movie in the franchise, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. From “the director most likely to masturbate to an explosion”, starring Megan Fox, who “combines the looks of a professional porn star with the acting of an amateur porn star”. It pretty much nails everything you thought about while you were watching this garbage in theaters and then some.

It really was one of the worst movie going experiences of my life, and that’s saying a lot. Watch the honest trailer below and get angry again:


In Flogging a Dead Horse News: The Next FRIDAY THE 13TH Reboot Might Have a Director

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014


How many chances are these people taking with this franchise?  Good gravy, Friday the 13th was never a money machine anyways, are we out of ideas for horror now that we have used all the shaky camera footage?

Paramount Pictures has found a director for the next Friday the 13th reboot reports The Wrap.  David Bruckner (V/H/S) is in talks to take the job which the studio hopes will make a new Friday the 13th franchise happen.  The 2009 attempt was dead in the water (pun intended) and last November we heard plans for this reboot in the found footage style.  I would be curious to see what Bruckner could bring to the table to put life back into the series; someone has to hand in good script first I assume.  Michael Bay will produce this one too this his Platinum Dunes which already has a March 13, 2015 release date.

If they want COF to write a comic for this reboot, we got a spec going:

Things Go Boom in this Full Trailer for TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

The new album cover for Faith + 1.

Here is the first fill trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction, a movie that is so ridiculous, the main character had to be named is Cade.  We get American flags and a girl in distress, this is definitely a Transformers movie for sure.  This one takes place some time after the events of the third Transformers movie with a different set of characters.  Mark Wahlberg is a mechanic who starts working on what he believes to be a junked truck, only to discover that it’s actually a Transformer.  The metaphor there of course is that this is a reboot.

The film stars Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Kelsey Grammer, Stanley Tucci, T.J. Miller, Titus Welliver, Han Geng, Sophia Myles, and Li Bingbing.

Transformers: Age of Extinction opens June 27th.

Watch the trailer below:


Fun With Short Films – Memorize

Sunday, August 11th, 2013


Set in the year 2027, Memorize tells the tale of a new method to combat crime. Everyone is implanted with a Memorize-chip that records everything you see. Our protagonist is a member of a special form of police, the SSU – Special Surveillance Unit.

Beautifully shot, Memorize looks like a major studio film. It is heavy on action, and light on dialogue – so it closely resembles a Michael Bay film! Creators Jimmy Eriksson and Eric Ramberg’s choice of this direction is really effective when your actors have limited acting skills or there is concern with writing quality dialogue. Whether either of these were a concern, who knows.

To be honest there is nothing extremely innovative about Memorize, yet it is an entertaining ride nonetheless. Many times during this film it seemed like the love child of Minority Report and Judge Dredd. The theme of  government surveillance/control is not new, but in most cases it is seen as a cautionary tale. Memorize almost feels like the opposite stance is taken, it seems as if it is almost justified. I don’t know if that was intentional or just the feeling I had while watching it.

Check out Memorize below after the jump, the film is approximately 7 minutes long. Also, notice Wall-E’s distant cousin partway through this one, he must be the black sheep of the family.

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

tmnt, teenage mutant ninja turtles

There are finally some first images coming from the set of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the logo and Megan Fox as April O’Neil.  Not much going on so far, no sign of the turtles…yet.  We can see the the logo for director Jonathan Liebesman’s remake, or is it reboot? Re-imagination?  We will have to wait and see how this thing pans out, everyone have faith?  Here is an image of Fox on a trampoline, likely some CGI/green screen going on.

The movie also stars Will Arnett, Danny Woodburn, Alan Ritchson, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard, and Noel Fisher.

Ninja Turtles opens on June 6, 2014.


How’s this disgruntled nerds…nailed it?
