Trailer Time: Transformers - Dark of the Moon

Until now, we’ve only seen brief wordless glimpses of the third Transformers film, but tonight, Paramount unleashed the full trailer and it’s a doozy.  I like the more serious approach and the visuals are just astonishing.  The stakes look higher, the robots are bigger, and Chicago is almost a supporting character.  In theaters July 1st....

Movie Review - Water for Elephants

BY ROBERT HAMMERLE, guest contributor to Hammervision Curiously, “Water for Elephants” is a rather lightweight pleasure, functioning as a bastard offspring of a daytime TV Soap Opera and James Cameron’s colossal hit “Titanic” (1997). While the illicit romance between Reese Witherspoon’s Marlena and Robert Pattison’s Jacob ignites even fewer sparks than that between Hugh Jackman... Read more »

MUST WATCH: The Batman Complex

I have to give a shout out to my good buddy Matt Campobasso who showed me this today.  In an ingenious bit of having waaaaaay too much time on your hands, the fan who made this fake trailer took bits of Inception, The Machinist, The Dark Knight, and Batman Begins, among others, and cooked up a...

American Idol Recap - Here They Come A-Carole-ing

Movie Review - Madea's Big Happy Family

BY ROBERT HAMMERLE, guest contributor to Hammervision For what it is worth, I have never hidden the fact that I have been a big fan of Tyler Perry for years. No, I don’t think he writes, produces and directs great movies, but I do appreciate how he has viscerally connected with his core audience, namely... Read more »

Movie Review - Super (***)

SUPER.  89 mins.  R.  Written and Directed by James Gunn. Despite being released in the marketplace about two movies too late (after the similarly themed  (and plotted) Defendor and Kick-Ass), the twisted new superhero spoof/deconstruction Super (from Slither writer-director James Gunn) has cult classic written all over it.  I didn’t care for it much on first...

Good afternoon!  It’s time for another recap of The Killing, and this time our focus is on…rebellion. Let’s find out who our rebels with/without causes were: Bennet (Rebellion: He flat out lied to the police): When Bennet arrived to work on Day 5 after Rosie Larsen was murdered, the crack detective team of Linden and...

Summer Movie Forecast 2011
The summer movie season kicks off earlier than usual this year with this weekend’s release of Fast Five, the fifth entry in the remarkably long-lived Fast and the Furious franchise.  I don’t know about you, but I live for summer movies.  Sure, many of them disappoint, but it’s still fun to get excited about them...
