The CoF Weekend Preview: OK Ben We Get It, You’re Awesome

Friday, October 12th, 2012

Welcome to The CoF Weekend Preview, here is a look at what’s opening this weekend. Check out our Fall & Holiday Movie Guide for the rest of the year’s releases.  Stay tuned in the coming weeks for a new The Review, KFC and CoF Show!

Argo - RT (61%) – Trailer

After Gone Baby Gone and The Town, Ben Affleck really doesn’t have much more to prove with his ability to act in and direct a great movie.  He’s going for Oscar gold with this one, and it should come easy with a ‘true story’, pro-American touch.  There is also a great cast that includes everyone’s favorite John Goodman!

Sinister - RT (94%) – Trailer

This movie looks legitimately scary and twisted and I can’t want to see it.  Ethan Hawke is a great choice for a movie like this; he looks scared and paranoid all the time anyways.  Watch the trailer from the link above, there’s no words in it and it works beautifully.

Here Comes the Boom - RT (46%) – Trailer

Kevin James is doing the Kevin James thing again, so look for this to win the weekend with $60M.  He’s going to be doing a lot of falling, but just look greased up this time while doing it.

Seven Psychopaths - RT (84%) – Trailer

The best cast of any movie this year probably, and Christopher Walken playing himself (more or less) is just what people wanted, so thanks for listening guys.

ALSO OPENING Frankie Go Boom (Limited), Atlas Shrugged: Part II (Limited), Nobody Walks (Limited)

Silent But Deadly Red-Band Trailer for SINISTER Starring Ethan Hawke

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

sinisterWell that trailer did it for me, I can’t remember another horror movie I was this excited about seeing.  Sinister looks horrific and this voiceless trailer worked for me in so many ways.  The movie takes the found footage idea and gives it a different spin which I think we can all appreciate at this point.

Sinister stars Ethan Hawke, Juliet Rylance and James Ransone and opens October 12th.  Watch the first trailer here and check out the new trailer below:

A true crime novelist (Ethan Hawke) struggling to find his next big story, moves his family into a house where the horrific murder of an entire family took place.  But after finding a box of home videos in which other families are also brutally murdered, his investigation leads him to a supernatural entity that may be placing his own family in harm’s way.

Synopsis: The bad-guy character in a classic game who longs to be a hero brings trouble to his entire arcade after sneaking into a new first-person shooter game and unleashing a deadly enemy.
Director: Rich Moore
Stars: John C. Reilly, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, Sarah SilvermanAnalysis: Why hasn’t this idea been done already? It has so much potential with the inside jokes and nostalgia that we all want to see, or it won’t not do it enough so it needs a sequel. Let’s just hope they reference Iron Tank, best game ever.

Here’s the Trailer for SINISTER Starring Ethan Hawke, But Get Your Own Change of Shorts

Monday, June 18th, 2012

sinisterDirector Scott Derrickson returns to horror with the scary looking film Sinister starring Ethan Hawke.  Hawke plays a crime novelist that moves his family into a house where the previous owners were murdered.  That part of the story was a little played in the ’80s let alone today, but it gets better.  He comes across some old home videos of families being murdered, should have got that home inspection done son.

If you’re a fan of the underappreciated Exorcism of Emily Rose then you should be interested enough to check out Sinister.  The film also stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Sinister opens on August 24th.
