Holla! Another New Moon Teaser Trailer

It doesn’t take much to get “Twilight” fans in a tizzy. This new 14-second teaser trailer for “New Moon” is certainly doing the trick. What does the trailer show us? To, uh, not have high expectations for the acting and dialogue in this flick. OK, fine. We won’t judge it on this tiny snippet.

Attractive People Abound In “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus”

Earhart broke a bunch of aviation records and was the first woman to receive the Distinguished Flying Cross for becoming the first aviatrix to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She was pronounced dead i…

By now, you’ve probably heard of “The Girlfriend Experience,” Steven Soderbergh’s new movie about a high-end call girl who charges $2,000 for the privilege of letting guys pretend she’s their girlfriend and who’s played by porn star Sasha Grey.

Keira Knightley And Sienna Miller Fight Over A Man In “The Edge Of Love”

Keira Knightley seems to make period film after period film, and “The Edge of Love” doesn’t break the trend. In it, she and Sienna Miller play two women loved by the famous poet Dylan Thomas. The movie is out in very limited release in the U.S., but we think it looks worth Netflixing…

New “Twilight” Trailer: This Movie Is Going To Suck (Blood)

Forget it. I am so excited to see this movie. The new trailer for “Twilight” is out and dang, it looks pretty awesome and I’m not just saying that because Robert Pattinson makes my loins burn in the pleasurable way (as opposed to the bladder infection way). So tell me, “Twilight” fans, which…

A Romantic Movie That Doesn’t Suck?

Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist

Most romantic comedies are a little sap-tastic with few moments that are actually funny. Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, starring Michael Cera and Kat Dennings, looks cute, and more importantly, funny. I’m sitting in a coffee shop with my headphones in, and I actually laughed out loud while watching…
