    Star Trek

    Star Trek Driver's Ed The first trailer is here. It starts off with young James Tiberius Kirk driving a Corvette off a cliff. The he gets the keys to a much more expensive vehicle. And wrecks that, too.

    Watchmen Confession: I have never read the Watchmen comics, though my geeky friend Thom won’t stop nagging me about them. “Mike, this trailer will totally make you want to read them,” he says. Sorry, dude. But it sure makes me want to see the movie.

    Perfect Storm It’s from the producer of The Day After Tomorrow, so you can be sure that it’ll be skull-crushingly horrible, and probably involve CGI wolves in at least a couple scenes. But damn, this teaser trailer is flat-out awesome, in a crap-your-pants-we’re-all-going-to-die kind of way.

    Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

    Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Half-Forgotten The new trailer’s all right, but hasn’t pretty much every Potterhead moved on to Twilight by now?

    Dance Flick

    History Lesson Way back in the day, the dance flick was a respected genre. Tough to beat 1952’s Singin’ in the Rain. Hollywood historians trace the beginning of its dumbing-down process to 1983’s Flashdance. This disturbing trend of increasing idiocy continued in 2006 with Step Up, whose stupidity levels were eclipsed by the 2008 sequel Step Up 2: The Streets. Now the art form meets its sad, inevitable death.

    The Day the Earth Stood Still

    Bucket List Click on over to this site to build a list of things that you’d save from destruction if the earth really, you know, stood still and stuff. On my list: Me, my girlfriend and 10 cases of PBR.

    Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel

    Alvin and the Chipmunks Quit Butchering the English Language, You Stupid Rodents The name of this movie fills me with an indescribable and all-consuming hatred that threatens to devour my everlasting soul.

    Untitled Criss Angel Biopic

    Mindfreakout You may think that Criss Angel is a huge douche. And you might be right. But the simple fact that this movie based on his early career is a comedy has to at least lower his douche level a little bit.

    Alice in Wonderland

    Mad About Johnny Is this the first photo of Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter? If not, it’s perhaps the worst high school yearbook photo since I sat on the hood of my Camaro in a letterman’s jacket and black Reeboks in 1992.

    Killing Yourself to Live

    Here I Am Now, Entertain Me As someone from Seattle, I’m required to be skeptical of any story that involves Kurt Cobain, but Chuck Klosterman’s book about his cross-country journey to visit the death sites of famous rock ‘n’ rollers is legit, and damn funny. The only director who won’t wreck this is Gus Van Sant.
