Grading All the New Movie Trailers Out of Comic-Con


I traveled to visit family this weekend, so as new trailers came pouring in over the weekend from San Diego's Comic-Con, I was only able to watch a couple of them. I'm sure many of you may be interested in seeing them, debating them, and discussing them. So I Read more

Bright Spots: Chauncy's Chance


So I just happened to see Memphis, Tennessee briefly trending earlier today on Facebook (it appears to have already dropped half an hour after I first saw it), and so I obviously had to see what was going on. I was thrilled to see it was for another positive Read more

It was a hot Friday night in the summer of 1994. My parents and I had just walked into our house from a lengthy little league game of mine. Despite hours in the heat, I was wound up from the excitement of a win and eager to dive into Read more

Bright Spots: Memphis Teen Pays For College Like A Boss


Every now and then the media chooses to spend a little time on positive stories to share with the general public. I think it's important that we, as consumers, show up with website hits and/or media views to reinforce this positive publicity in a society dominated by negative news Read more

In Defense of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice


Imagine the following: a popular movie genre is categorized by smart but formulaic films, enjoyable and entertaining while also going out of their way to explain everything explicitly to the viewer and not engage any level of mystery or metaphysical questions.

Movie Review: 21 Jump Street

Posted on by Clayton Martin in Featured, Movie Reviews, Movies | 1 Comment

Last week I got to go to a sneak preview showing of 21 Jump Street, which starts playing in theaters this Friday (March 16th). I wouldn’t normally have hardly any expectations going into a movie like this; however, at the time I went to see it, it had managed to pick up 12 positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes giving it a 100% rating. This intrigued me and built a little excitement going into it. 12 reviews probably doesn’t sound like much to go by but it’s a decent indicator of how the movie will be. For comparison, Eddie Murphy’s new movie A Thousand Words, was and still is sitting at 0% after 43 reviews. I’m sure Paramount would have been thrilled to have gotten 12 positive reviews total.

For the record, at the time of this post 21 Jump Street has dropped a little but it is still at 90% with 40 reviews counted. Who would have thought a March release action/comedy could pull that off? Definitely not I. Read more

Posted on by Clayton Martin in Featured, Movie Previews, Movies | 2 Comments

Well reader of this, you’re welcome. I’ve done all the work for you. Compiled here is everything you need to know and look forward to related to movies in 2012. This isn’t every movie that’s coming out, just the ones that I feel are most noteworthy. About half of them are linked with trailers if you click the names and the others are linked to the IMDb page because the trailers haven’t been released. I have probably spent more time on this post than any research paper I’ve ever done so I hope you enjoy! I tried to include all of the blockbusters as well as the smaller indie films that are noteworthy. This should be a good reference throughout the year and you might want to bookmark it because I’ll be updating it throughout the year with date changes and additions. Read more
