The Best Trailer of the Year So Far; Tommy Lee Jones’ THE HOMESMAN

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014


Here is the first trailer and images for what look to be Tommy Lee Jones’ greatest directorial effort yet, a western drama titled The Homesman.  His last feature, The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada was great but was more of a modern-day western whereas The Homeman takes it back to 1850s American West.  The story centers on a claim-jumping rascal (Jones) and a frontierswoman (Hilary Swank) as they escort three insane women from Nebraska to Iowa and battle the harsh elemental conditions of the prairie.

The movie looks beautifully shot and will no doubt shine with potentially award deserving performances by its cast: Tommy Lee Jones, Hilary Swank, Hailee Steinfeld, Meryl Streep, Tim Blake Nelson, James Spader, William Fichtner, John Lithgow, and Jesse Plemons.

The Homesman is currently awaiting distribution and has no release date; watch the trailer below and stay here for more:


THE FUGITIVE 20th Anniversary: A Look at One of The Best Movies Ever Made (without hyperbole)

Saturday, August 10th, 2013


The Fugitive
Released August 6th 1993
Director: Andrew Davis
Writers: Jeb Stuart, David Twohy
Stars: Harrison Ford, Tommy Lee Jones

Chicago surgeon Dr. Richard Kimble, unjustly accused of murdering his wife, must find the real killer, and the reasons for the slaying, after being targeted in a nationwide manhunt led by tenacious United States Deputy Marshal Sam Gerard.

The Fugitive turned 20 years old this summer and will be celebrating with a special edition Blu-ray that will be released on September 17, 2013. The film still holds a place near and dear to me as not just one of the best thrillers ever made but one of the best movies ever made, period.

The film based on the 1960s classic TV series, stars Harrison Ford as wrongly-convicted Dr. Richard Kimble and Tommy Lee Jones in his Oscar- and Golden Globe-winning performance as Deputy Marshal Sam Gerard. The Fugitive garnered seven Academy Award nominations including Best Picture. The American Film Institute also listed it as one of the 100 Most Thrilling American films.



THE FAMILY Has a Trailer – Why’d You Kill The Plumber?

The Family 2

Robert De Niro is a great actor and has appeared in some of the greatest films ever.  I think we can all agree on that.  Unfortunately, we can also agree that his output of the last 15 years (with a few exceptions) has been pretty lackluster.  It seems as though he’s just coasting along, acting with none of the fire we saw in his early films.  That said, De Niro coasting is still better than a lot of actors at their best.

This trailer for Luc Besson’s new film, The Family, feels like it could go either way.  The trailer is a bit confused as to what it wants to be, but there’s enough there to make me a little optimistic.  The Tommy Lee Jones/Robert De Niro pair up in particular seems like it could be a lot of fun.

2013 Oscar Nominations Announced; Ben Affleck Snubbed for Best Director

Thursday, January 10th, 2013


That’s really all I have to say about the nominations, Ben Affleck got snubbed.  Argo was one of the best movies of the year and he didn’t get nominated for directing (although it’s up for Best Picture).  Don’t take this year’s nominations seriously; Flight got a nomination for writing.

The 85th Academy Awards will take place on February 24th, check out the nominations below:

Here is the new and improved trailer for Men in Black 3 with some more of Josh Brolin‘s great Tommy Lee Jones impression.  If you were hip to MIB in the 90′s then you know that gadgets and aliens are expected along with Will Smith yelling a lot.  They are going back to the 60′s in this one; maybe they will run into Austin Powers right?  Anyone?

Hit the jump to check out the trailer, Men in Black 3 opens in 3D on May 25th.

Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are back… in time. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K’s life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right. J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him — secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K (Josh Brolin) to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind.
