Trailer Park: “Saw 3D,” “Strange Powers,” “Monsters,” “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest”

I know it’s Halloween weekend and you’ve got costume parties to attend and sexy pirates to manhandle, but just in case you decide you need a break from all that teeth-rotting candy corn and ineffective fright tactics, you can always escape to the movies! Chances are, they’re probably going to be empty anyway except for the die-hard “Saw” fans. So now’s the perfect time to see “Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and the Magnetic Fields” because it’s totally not Halloween-themed and if no one else is there, you can totally throw a little party and talk to the screen. There are other movies coming out too, but I care slightly less about those, so if you want to know more, keep reading! Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Paranormal Activity 2,” “Hereafter,” “The Company Men,” “Inhale,” “Kalamity”

We’re just about a week away from Halloween and the creepy movies are back in spades. I guess that watching “Paranormal Activity 2″ would be cheaper than most haunted houses. And you don’t have to get any hay on your butt, if you don’t want to. Most of the other movies are about varying degrees of desperation. I guess this time of year lends itself to that kind of thing—wallowing in the dying bits before everything’s iced over and reborn. Or maybe I’m just projecting? Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Red,” “Hereafter,” “Conviction,” “Jackass 3D,” “Marwencol,” “Carlos”

Every day closer to Halloween is another day that I avoid the candy aisles at the drug store so that I don’t end up passed out in a bed of 600 tiny wrappers, drooling chocolate. If you’re suffering from a similar pattern, there’s nowhere better to hide than a movie theater. But they’ve got candy there, you say? Well, hopefully that 400 percent mark-up is enough to deter you. With the exception of “Jackass 3D,” this week brought some pretty heady films to the table and, for the first time in weeks, no horror movies! So go forth and watch. Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Life As We Know It,” “It’s Kind Of A Funny Story,” “Nowhere Boy,” “Secretariat”

I haven’t been everywhere, but I think it’s safe to say after all the bizarre weather patterns last week that it is finally fall now! It’s also that wonderful month when drug stores turn into creepy candy cornucopias and the movie theater is flooded with horror movies. This week, there’s actually a bunch of exciting movies coming out! In honor of what would be John Lennon‘s 70th birthday, his biopic, “Nowhere Boy,” is in theaters. There is also the “talk to your friends about the fact that you made them godparents” fable, “Life as We Know It.” We find love in a psych ward in “It’s Kind of a Funny Story.” And then there’s a prison movie (“Stone”), a horse movie (“Secretariat”), and two horror movies (“I Spit on Your Grave” and “My Soul to Take”). Now go to the movies! Bring some candy corn. God knows there isn’t enough corn in your diet. Brought to you by the American Corn Growers Association. Not really though. Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “The Social Network,” “Let Me In,” “Freakonomics,” “Case 39,” “Barry Munday”

As we’re coming up on Halloween, the movie theaters are being flooded with horror movies. As if the world wasn’t a scary enough place, for the next month, you can sit in a dark room with strangers and watch the blood splatter! Even the non-horror genres often present some terrifying truths, so really there’s no way to be safe, but isn’t that what this adventure called life is all about? Go out there and see a movie — at the very least it will remind you that life could be worse! Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,” “Howl,” “Waiting for ‘Superman,’” “Buried”

Well, it’s officially fall now and along with the heavier foods and heavier sweaters come some heavier movies. Thank goodness, because I couldn’t deal with another teenager falling in love on the beach. Now it’s just a steady build-up to the bah-humbug movies of the season of chilled hearts. It’s time for some self-reflection and hoarding food for the winter. And because a lot of people are too lazy to read books these days, movies are a concise alternative—now go catch one of these flicks! Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Easy A,” “The Town,” “Catfish,” “Leaves of Grass,” “Jack Goes Boating,” “The Freebie”

We are merely days away from autumn and thank goodness for that, because along with the sweaters and leaves comes some quality movies. This might be the first time ever that I want to see every single movie that is coming out (except for the creepy animated wolf movie I conveniently left off of the list). There’s comedy, intrigue, romance, and a lot of amazing actors who’ve been on the down-low for a bit. There’s the eagerly awaited “Easy A,” the Ben Affleck-directed “The Town,” reality thriller “Catfish,” and Edward Norton‘s newest, “Leaves of Grass.” Also: Philip Seymour Hoffman learns to swim in “Jack Goes Boating” and Dax Shepard and his wife make a deal with “The Freebie.” Go see a frickin’ movie. And call your mother—she worries. Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “The Romantics,” “Resident Evil: Afterlife,” “I’m Still Here,” “Heartbreaker”

There’s something so magical about the week after long weekends. Like, when you wake up on Saturday, you feel like there’s another work day left but instead you get to do whatever the hell you want! And because there’s basically another weekend, a day early, you should reward yourself with a movie. This week’s movies include “The Romantics,” “Resident Evil: Afterlife,” “I’m Still Here,” “Heartbreaker,” “Expecting Mary,” “Lovely Still,” and “Virginity Hit.” Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Going The Distance,” “The American,” “Machete,” “The Winning Season”

It’s a shockingly awesome week for movie-going. Maybe it’s a back-to-school gift to the kiddies? Or an end-of-summer peacemaker? Maybe I’m just in a really good mood and these are actually craptastic movies. Whatever is going on, I’m into it. This week’s movies also cover a huge spectrum of the human experience so no matter what mood you’re in, you’ll probably be psyched. This week, go see “Going the Distance,” “The American,” “Machete,” “The Winning Season,” “Suck,” “Last Train Home,” or “Prince of Broadway.” If you hate them, I’ll totally give you a refund. But not really. Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Takers,” “The Last Exorcism,” “The Tillman Story,” “Daniel And Ana,” “Centurion”

It’s that dark time of year when you know the summer’s end is just around the bend. And of course the movies this week are particularly bleak. There’s a lot of robbing, murdering, blood, death, possession, and other unspeakable things. I’m not saying you shouldn’t go to the movies because it’s going to be a bummerfest, though—there’s still lots of action and adventure and human emotion. Just not the funny kind! Keep reading »
