Where is Bruce Willis When You Need Him?

Where is Bruce Willis When You Need Him?

 |  by  |  DualReviews  |  Share

Zac: What would you do if you knew the world was going to end in 3 weeks? Would you spend time with family? Frantically try to cross every item off your bucket list? Keep living life like everything was fine? That's the question at the center of Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. The majority of Hollywood disaster movies all follow the same, relatively simple formula: 1) A threat to humanity is discovered (Aliens, Asteroid, Natural Disaster, etc.) 2) Any conventional method for stopping it is quickly dismissed 2) One or several misfits or renegades are brought in to help 3) A crazy (but plausible) plan is formed 4) The plan fails...

Nic: A few months back we came across the Safety Not Guaranteed trailer and I gotta be honest, I was intrigued.  The story line of this movie is awesome by itself.  I mean, it starts with a want ad that reads – *Wanted* Somebody to go back in time with me. This is not a joke.  You’ll get paid after we get back.  Must bring your own weapons. Safety not guaranteed.  I have only done this once before.  -- How can you go wrong with a movie like that?  Well, I’m here to tell you that you can’t. Rocked the Rave...

Don't Worry, We Didn't Understand It Either: A Discussion About Prometheus

Don’t Worry, We Didn’t Understand It Either: A Discussion About Prometheus

 |  by  |  DualReviews  |  Share

 (Note: This is less of a review, and more of a discussion about Prometheus, so if you haven’t already seen the movie, there’s gonna be some spoilers coming your way. Also, much like the movie, there’s a high probability that none of this will make sense. Sorry.) Nic D: Have you ever watched a movie and at the end felt like what the hell did I just watch?  Did I miss something?  Or like, 8 things? I gave myself a week to think about this movie and come up with a few things to write, but I kept arriving at the...

Tuesday Trailers: Counting on Your Support

Tuesday Trailers: Counting on Your Support

 |  by  |  Tuesday Trailers  |  Share

It's time for another edition of Tuesday Trailers. Here we go: The Campaign ZO: Here’s my concern about the movie: Jay Roach. Not long ago, he was almost exclusively a “comedy” guy, directing the Austin Powers series, the first two Meet the Parents movies, and producing Borat, Bruno, and Adam Sandler’s 50 First Dates. In the years since, he’s taken an intense interest to almost anything political, producing and directing the docudramas Recount and Game Change for HBO, and is currently working on a drama about the Watergate scandal. This should make him the ideal candidate for the job;  a solid understanding...

Tuesday Trailers: The Colin Farrell Effect

Tuesday Trailers: The Colin Farrell Effect

 |  by  |  Tuesday Trailers  |  Share

Welcome to another edition of Tuesday Trailers. Let's go.   House at the End of the Street ZO: It seems like one of Hollywood’s most well-known (and clichéd) paths to stardom is that of the Slasher Movie Starlet. The thinking goes that a young actress pays her dues by appearing in a few mediocre horror films, then begins her decent up the career ladder to more prestigious roles and bigger paydays. Everyone’s favorite example of this, of course, is Jamie Lee Curtis, who started out starring in movies such as Halloween, The Fog, and Prom Night before moving on to more mainstream hits such...

Tuesday Trailers: Not Expecting Much From ‘Expecting’

 |  by  |  Tuesday Trailers  |  Share

We're trying something new today, it's called Tuesday Trailers. Instead of just posting trailers for you to look through over at watch@armovieguys, we thought we'd put a few here also, and talk about our reactions to them. (They'll still be up over at watch also, we don't want anyone feeling confused or left out, we aim to please dammit!) Enjoy!   Safety Not Guaranteed ND: I think this movie has great potential.  I was into it from the very beginning.  I mean, an ad in the paper for a time traveling partner?  Awesome concept!  Good cast and a great story line.  Bonus - Love it...

Featured Trailer: Beauty and the Beast 3D

 |  by  |  Featured Trailers  |  Share

It's back! Beauty and the Beast…in stunning Disney 3D. (You think that $78mil The Lion King made had anything to do with this?) It's been 20 years since the Beast went through Belle's anger management program and landed himself one of the hottest Disney women of all time. Wow, where does the time go? Guys can lie all they want about not liking Disney movies, but they are what they are, and most of them are awesome. This one is no different. Chick flick? Absolutely. Watchable even if you have a pair? Also a yes. Are we excited about the Re-Release? Sure. Plus...

Zac:  It’s good to be Michael Lewis. No really, it is. First the film adaptation of his book “The Blind Side” earns Sandra Bullock an Oscar (and gets a Best Picture nomination), then Moneyball opens well at the box office, garners rave reviews from the critics, and is generating some Oscar buzz of its own. This success has prompted Hollywood to take another look at his first book, Liar’s Poker, which is now on the fast track to making its way to the big screen as well. Oh, and his new book Boomerang is tops on the NY Times bestseller...

Nic D: I’d like to believe that there can be humor in every situation.  You just gotta find it.  The world can be a fu*#ed up place, but he who keep-ith a positive outlook and keeps moving forward can get past those rough patches.  Family and friends are the most important things in this crazy life of ours and we can’t forget that.  With them, and J.C., anything is possible.  PLUS, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…solid tunes.  Have a solid soundtrack?  If you do, a half a letter grade is immediately jumped.  With that, you got...
