The strangers trailer Los

The strangers trailer

Los Angeles is one of the last strongholds on the West Coast, and the Marines are trying to set up a counterattack to draw a line in the sand against the monstrous Juggernaut. But first, civilians need to be evacuated, and a Marine platoon, headed up by Aaron Eckhart, must skirt enemy territory to rescue some stranded people. Its the grunts against the aliens in the mean streets of What We Say: If you liked the shaky v rit like camerawork of Cloverfield or Skyline youll love this one, which puts you on the ground with the Marines as they fight off one alien after another. But thats pretty much it for this film: Theres no overriding, big picture for the action, just one skirmish after another, one close escape after another, one more dead marine or civilian or alien. Admittedly, the sets of smashed freeways, wrecked vehicles the strangers trailer destroyed buildings are a marvel to behold, but the shapeless, impersonal film keeps you isolated from caring for anyone or the strangers trailer rooting for the humans. Despite all the expensive effects, the film goes nowhere kind of like rush hour in What Its About: Weird, dark extrapolation of the Grimms fairy tale already pretty dark, set in medieval times, full of brooding sexuality and angst. Amanda Seyfried plays Valerie, a beautiful young woman whose plans to run off with her true love are put on hold when her town comes under siege by a werewolf. The local priest calls in a religious werewolf hunter, Father Solomon an over the top, evil Gary Oldman, who proceeds to cause more damage than the werewolf as he tries to hunt witches and track down the human who is the werewolf amongst them. As the death toll rises with each moon, Valerie begins to suspect that the werewolf could be someone she loves. What We Say: Take two snarky, handsome heroes at odds with each other over the love of an independent, petulant heroine, throw in Catherine Hardwicke as director, and what do you get? No, not Twilight, but an adult-themed facsimile. Unfortunately, where Twilight has a syrupy, involving story line, Red Riding Hood is a messy tale at best, with a sloppy plot and aimless acting theres one scene in which Seyfried stands around, looking as if shes waiting for acting instructions. At least the sets are medieval lush and the sound especially the creak and crash of doors slamming and wood shattering is stupendous. This is a fairy tale best left untold. Extras: Behind-the-scenes featurettes, gag reel. What Its About: Rick Owen Wilson and Fred Jason Sudeikis are best friends who have a lot in common, including the fact that they have each been married for many years. But when the two men begin to show signs of restlessness at home, their wives Jenna Fischer, Christina Applegate take a bold approach to revitalizing their marriages: granting them a hall pass, one week of freedom to do whatever they no questions asked. But can the guys handle the pressure of trying to score in a world that has left them behind? What We Say: At the risk of being stoned by angry fans, I must make this disclaimer: I have never, ever liked a Farrelly brothers movie. Theres always an undercurrent of meanness and nastiness in their films that emphasize the worst aspects of our culture, from selfishness to disrespect to plain, outright adolescent stupidity one of their upcoming projects: Walter the Farting Dog. That said, the brothers seem to have dialed back some of their patented gross-out humor for Hall Pass, but their storytelling still rests on the back of immature, superficial men who ogle passing female rearends but really only know how to handle poker, pizza and beer. Which means its all downhill from there. Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son : Martin Lawrences career must have hit rock bottom for him to star in this uninspiring second sequel in which he stars as an FBI agent who always has to dress up as a Big Momma to capture criminals. He does it again here along with his step son to go undercover at the Atlanta Girls School for the Arts to unmask a murderer. The Concert : Delightful French comedy about a once celebrated Russian conductor of the Bolshoi orchestra who was fired 30 years ago for hiring Jewish musicians and is now a mere cleaning man at the Bolshoi. When he learns that the Chatelet Theater in Paris has invited the orchestra to play there, he masterminds a plan to pose as the leader of the group in order to make a triumphant return to the music scene. With a motley bunch of old Jewish and Gypsy musicians at his side, he sets off for Paris, impersonating the Bolshoi, to fulfill his destiny and return to his glory as a great conductor. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Ultimate Edition and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Ultimate Edition : Both sets include more than four hours of special features and collectibles, including a photo book featuring 44 pages of rare photos of the cast and crew, concept sketches and paintings, and behind-the-scenes insight. Also features limited edition character cards, a lenticular card and a bonus digital copy of the film. Kill the Irishman : Action-packed story about the rise and fall of real-life Irish-American mobster Danny Greene, who started out with the Italian Mafia then went on to create his own gangster empire, along the way surviving countless assassination attempts. Stars Ray Stevenson, Val Kilmer, Christopher Walken, Vincent DOnofrio. Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen : Donnie Yen stars as a masked warrior who tries to subvert the Japanese invasion of China just before World War II. Midnight Movie: The Killer Cut : 2008 Reworked version of the cult film, with new sequences and effects. A midnight showing of an early 1970s horror movie turns to chaos when the Killer from the movie comes out of the film to attack those in the theater.
