Taraji P. Henson in What Men Want from Paramount Pictures and Paramount Players.

Remakes simply can’t be helped. So in order to help a remake from feeling repetitious, it’s going to have to offer an interesting twist in order to keep things fresh. In the case of What Men Want, a re-imagining of the Mel Gibson-starring comedy vehicle What Women Want, we see Taraji P. Henson take the lead as a woman with the ability to hear men’s most inner thoughts.

An official trailer for the film has been released by Paramount, and you can check it out below.

Laika Entertainment's The Boxtrolls

If you’ve seen 2009’s Coraline or 2012’s ParaNorman, then you know the kind of top-notch stop-motion animation work that Laika Entertainment can deliver. With their next feature, The Boxtrolls, they of course aim to set the bar higher.

While we can watch, enjoy, and appreciate a movie for what it is, not always do we really see what goes into making it. This is especially the case for stop-motion films, which require an unfathomable amount of work and detail to pull off successfully. With The Boxtrolls set to hit theaters this Friday, distributor Focus Features has unveiled a pair of new videos that will give you a greater appreciation of the art of stop-motion.

You can check them out below.

G-Force 3D Blu-rayG-Force
Blu-ray 3D Blu-ray Combo Pack
Directed by Hoyt H. Heatman Jr.
Starring Bill Nighy, Nicolas Cage, Zach Galifianakis, Penelope Cruz, Tracy Morgan, Jon Favreau, Dee Bradley Baker
Walt Disney Pictures Home Entertainment
Release Date: November 8, 2011

A specially trained squad of guinea pigs is dispatched to stop a diabolical billionaire from taking over the world.

G-Force is a harmless family film which sticks to an established formula that appeals to a mass audience. Kids will enjoy the talking animals and the action/epsionage plot. Adults will enjoy seeing and hearing from some of their favorite hollywood actors and actresses. It’s revealed in the special features that the director’s five-year-old son was the mastermind behind the film. Don’t expect too much cinematic depth here. Do expect a new Black Eyed Peas song every five minutes though.

Spoiler Talk: Cop Out
space
The Rub   |  
space

Cop OutI was excited at the prospect of Kevin Smith directing a buddy cop movie. The original title, A Couple of Dicks, hinted at some of the irreverence that made Smith famous. Warner Bros. changed the title to Cop Out for marketing purposes then proceeded to market it to death, oddly leaving mention of Smith out of the campaign. Even though he didn’t write it, I had hopes that Smith’s presence would have at least helped fill in the cracks or stretch the funny if needed.

Well it was sorely needed and sadly, it didn’t work. It was almost like Kevin Smith directing a movie written by someone not as talented trying to write a Kevin Smith movie. Wait, that’s actually exactly what it was. It was supposed to pay homage to this type of movie but it was just a lazy, uninspired copy. Of a copy. For what it’s worth, everyone else in the theatre where I saw it was at least 20 years older than me and they couldn’t stop laughing. I guess that’s something.

Time for a little SPOILER TALK. Below are some of my random, non-sequential spoiler-filled thoughts and rants about the movie. Leave your comments about the movie below.

Movie Review: Cop Out

Cop OutCop Out
Directed by Kevin Smith
Starring Bruce Willis, Tracy Morgan, Michelle Trachtenberg, Jason Lee, Seann William Scott, Adam Brody, Fred Armisen
Rated R
Release date: February 26, 2010

Cop out — an idiom meaning to avoid taking responsibility for an action or to avoid fulfilling a duty.

Kevin Smith has probably been guilty of “copping out” many times in his life. The question is, “Was the title of his latest film a self-fulfilling prophecy?”

I’m a huge Kevin Smith fan. I’ve seen all of his films, purchased every Evening With DVD, and salivate every time a new episode of his popular podcast (SModcast) is released. That being said I don’t think he’s without his flaws. As an actor/director he leaves much to be desired. On the flip side, as a writer/speaker he is tremendous.

Knowing this, I went into Cop Out with some reservations. This was the first film he’s directed that he hasn’t also written. It’s also the first time working without long-time collaborator/SModcast co-host/producer Scott Mosier and his presence seems to be the heart and soul of a Kevin Smith film. So it was an uphill battle from the start with this movie.

Words That Will Infuriate You: ‘Jaws’ To Be Remade In 3D?
space
The Movie God   |  @   |

Jaws

We say it often here, and we’ll say it again: most rumors aren’t worth even reading, let alone covering. But when a rumor has any kind of a backing or a solid inside source, and when it involves something one simply can’t ignore, then we shall bring it to your eyes.

Cinema Blend has word from a source that they have at Universal Pictures that the studio is “strongly” considering the possibility of remaking Steven Spielberg‘s classic 1975 Great White shark movie, Jaws, and bathing it in 3D for today’s audiences. The logic here is that everything is in 3D these days, and everything is being remade, so the smartest way for them to make a ton of money is to remake their classics with modern technologies. The same source even said that Universal was looking at actors like Tracy Morgan for the role of Hooper, once played by Richard Dreyfus.

If the very whisper of that paragraph doesn’t lead you break at least one thing in your general vicinity, than I would question your mental status as a movie fan.
