Geeks of Doom Netflix Streaming Review

Netflix Review: RangoRango
Netflix Streaming
DVD | DVD
Directed by Gore Verbinski
Starring Johnny Depp, Isla Fisher, Alfred Molina, Bill Nighy, Ray Winstone, Timothy Olyphant, Ned Beatty
Paramount Pictures
Originally Released: March 4, 2011

While branded as an animated family movie, Rango is truly a thrilling Western and hysterical comedy all built into one. The animation is remarkable in its coupling with some memorable voice acting, supported by a solid script and iconic scenes. Rango is a film that must not be missed.

The movie tells the story of our title character, who begins as a household family pet with gigantic dreams of becoming the most revered and versatile actor of all time. A chance accident finds him lost and alone on a desert highway, from where he finds his way to the City Of Dirt. The plot then morphs into a Western motif at this point, where Rango discovers he may be able to play the role of a lifetime in this new city.

Now, Lionsgate has released the second trailer for the film, directed by John Singleton. Watch the new trailer here below.

In Abduction, Lautner plays a teenager who finds his baby photo on a missing persons website, which makes him question his background, and eventually he becomes a target of the CIA and the Serbian Secret Service.

Taylor Lautner Tries To Distance Himself From ‘The Twilight Saga’ In This ‘Abduction’ Trailer

The Movie God   |  @   |

Despite what your views may be on The Twilight Saga, the franchise has made absurd amounts of money and it’s been expected all along that star Taylor Lautner was destined for big things in his post-Twilight career.

The actor has lined up many various roles in the past year or so, one of which is called Abduction. The movie tells the story of a normal everyday kid who discovers he’s in a directory of abducted children, which opens up a storm of twists and turns as he goes on the run and searches for answers.

A trailer for the movie, which is directed by John Singleton and also stars Lily Collins, Maria Bello, Jason Isaacs, Sigourney Weaver, and Alfred Molina, has been released by Lionsgate, and you can see it by clicking on over to the other side now.

Taylor Lautner Abduction

Earlier this week, the first look was released of Taylor Lautner in the upcoming conspiracy thriller Abduction.

Liongate has released two more images today of Lautner in Abduction, where he plays a high school senior who finds his baby photo on a missing persons website, and realizes the people who raised him aren’t his real parents.

Check out the photos here below; one is a behind-the-scenes look at Lautner running (it seems like he’ll be doing quite a bit of this in the film); the other is of Lautner with co-star Lily Collins. I also updated the first-look photo of Lautner with a hi-res version.

Movie Review: The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

Disneys The Sorcerers Apprentice movie posterThe Sorcerer’s Apprentice
Directed by Jon Turteltaub
Starring Jay Baruchel, Nicolas Cage, Alfred Molina, Teresa Palmer, Toby Kebbell
Release date: July 14, 2010

I’ll save you the suspense. Despite the fact that I don’t find it a particularly good movie, I liked The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. Don’t mistake that for indecision. I think people’s ability to compartmentalize their taste in movies has a direct impact on their enjoyment of movies as entertainment. Saying a movie is bad isn’t the same as saying you didn’t like it. For as evolved as a lot of our taste in movies have become, there are still those inexplicable few that slip through that we like despite every inclination not to. I grew up watching some terrible movies and liked quite a lot of them. Some I still do. I know they are bad, but there is more that goes into liking a movie than knowing it was well made. Nostalgia, perspective, fandom, all of these things can also shape our experience outside of the quality of the film itself. We just like what we like and sometimes there is just no explanation for having a good time watching a movie. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is that experience for me.

Johnny Depp Is A Fear And Loathing Lizard In Gore Verbinski’s ‘Rango’ Trailer

The Movie God   |  @   |

The first trailer for Gore Verbinksi‘s new animated movie Rango has been released online. The movie features Johnny Depp in the lead role, a lizard named Rango who’s struggling with an identity crisis.

This is just a teaser trailer, but you’ll get a good feel of the movie. The animation is solid and you’ll hear a little of the not-so-Johnny-Depp-sounding lizard.

The thing that will really stand out to some fans is the nod to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and the famed author Hunter S. Thompson. Depp played a Thompson-esq character in Fear and Loathing, and will again in the upcoming book adaptation, The Rum Diaries.

Find yourself and head on over to the other side to check out the first teaser trailer for Rango.
