‘Coco’ Trailer: Pixar’s Latest Is A Beautiful Bittersweet Symphony
eelyajekiM   |  

COCO Pixar

It’s almost hard to find a “bad” Pixar film. Even their weakest efforts have some very likable qualities, and almost every film is just gorgeous to look at. But when it comes to Coco, the animation studio has really outdone themselves. The latest trailer is full of vibrant colors and emotional musical pieces that really get at the heart of the film’s plot, which follows a young boy named Miguel who, desperate to become an accomplished musician like his idol, finds himself in the land of the dead during Mexico’s celebrated Dia De Los Muertos or Day of the Dead. A love for family and music sing true in what is obviously a love letter to Mexico.

Check out the full Coco trailer here below.

Movie Review: Cars 3

Cars 3

Cars 3
Director: Brian Fee
Screenwriters: Kiel Murray, Bob Peterson, Mike Rich
Cast: Owen Wilson, Cristela Alonzo, Armie Hammer, Larry the Cable Guy, Bonnie Hunt, Nathan Fillion, Kerry Washington, Lea DeLaria
Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures
Rated PG| 109 Minutes
Release Date: June 16, 2017

One of the things that continues to impress me about Pixar’s Cars franchise is its resiliency and heart. Though it is considered to be one of Pixar’s weakest franchises, it managed to become a trilogy. It may not resonate as much with fans as some other Pixar films do, but Cars has continually shown that it has what it takes to be great. Even if it that means it needed to take two “very safe” films to get there. So Cars 3 doesn’t take any huge risks, it takes an unconventional approach to possibly ending Lightning McQueen’s (Owen Wilson) story.

While that is a bit refreshing for the franchise, it does come with its own set of issues and concerns. All of it depends on how you look at it. Check out my full review below.

Watch: New ‘Cars 3’ Trailer “Rivalry”
The Movie God   |  

Cars 3

We just saw a trailer for Pixar’s trilogy-maker Cars 3 a couple of weeks back, but a new trailer has been released this week.

The new trailer is titled “Rivalry,” and you can probably guess what it focuses on. It opens with the voice of the late, great Paul Newman, who voiced Doc Hudson in the original movie—the final character he ever played. Pixar had voice over he recorded for the first movie that was never used, so we’ll be hearing new stuff from Doc in the movie, likely in flashbacks or dream sequences of some sort. The trailer then shifts to Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and the seemingly unbeatable racing star he’s up against, Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer).

Check out the latest trailer for Cars 3 below.

Cars 3 Header Image

Cars may not be as universally loved as its fellow Pixar films, but like all Pixar films, it has plenty of heart. Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) has been steering the franchise’s success for the last two films, where he has discovered the true meaning of humility and friendship.

But now it’s time for him to suffer a very critical loss and go back to basics to discover that some careers don’t last forever, but it’s the legacy that you leave behind that truly matters. Check out the latest trailer for Cars 3 below.

Retro Movie Review: From Dusk Till Dawn (1996) – Fathom Events
Dr. Zaius   |  

From Dusk Till Dawn Header

From Dusk Till Dawn
Available now on Blu-ray
Written by Quentin Tarantino & Robert Kurtzman
Directed by Robert Rodriguez
Starring George Clooney, Quentin Tarantino, Juliette Lewis, Harvey Keitel, Cheech Marin, Ernest Liu, Salma Hayek
Miramax
Rated R | 108 minutes
Release date: January 19th, 1996
Fathom Events screening: November 6, 2016

“Psychos do not explode when sunlight hits them, I don’t give a f*ck how crazy they are!”

Twenty years ago, my father took a young 13-year old to the movie theater to see From Dusk Till Dawn. The movie was written by Quentin Tarantino who I had recently dubbed my idol after watching Pulp Fiction for the first time, and directed by Robert Rodriguez who did Desperado, another of my early favorites. It has since become something of a legend to us, and the phrase “don’t tell Mom” is part of the family vernacular. So when Fathom Events and Miramax put From Dusk Till Dawn back in the theaters, I knew I had to carry on family tradition and take my 12-year-old son to it. Sure, From Dusk Till Dawn is very rated-R. But this was a rite of passage.

Robert Rodriguez and Danny Trejo Re-Team For ‘Machete Kills’
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Machete

Looks like the wrong Mexican is about to fucked with again.

It was nearly two years ago when fiercely independent filmmaker Robert Rodriguez turned his fake Grindhouse trailer Machete into a full-blown feature film top-loaded with gratuitous female nudity, gleefully gory comic book action, and an absurd all-star cast including Robert DeNiro, Don Johnson, Lindsay Lohan, and Cheech Marin. The entire concept of Machete was built around legendary tough guy character actor Danny Trejo, who reprised the title role that has elevated him to the status of an action icon in Rodriguez’s 2010 B-movie epic that grossed $44 million globally from a $10.5 million budget and did excellent business on DVD and Blu-ray.
