It’s really a rare treat when we get a chance to review a documentary as they just don’t come out that often and even then it’s rare that there is a press screening available to us. So when the screening for Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf’s came up, I jumped at the chance to screen it and I hope it’s the first of many we’ll review for you. I’m admittedly not the audience this is necessarily for, as Bergdorf’s or Bergdorf Goodman is a very expensive and well known New York department store known for high fashion which this movie focuses its most energy on. So did this movie based about posh fashion work for my fashion illiterate tastes? Well, let’s just get into it.
A trailer for Don Jon has finally been released. This is the the first film written and directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Starring Gordon-Levitt himself opposite Scarlett Johansson, the film looks to be a romantic comedy that couldn’t be more different than 500 Days of Summer. Check out the trailer above.
New trailer for Edgar Wright’s The World’s End continues to stack my interest up. This movie looks more and more fun each time and I seriously can’t wait for its release.
Well, what do we have here, a trailer for the sequel to (debatibly) the best Will Ferrell movie, Anchorman? This trailer takes off a bit of the style from the teaser that first announced the sequel and adds in some more fun from our returning and much missed characters. Its nice to see more from Anchorman: The Legend Continues and it helps hype us up for it. Follow us after the jump for details.
Ben and Garrett kick off the new podcast series of Reel Too Real “Sitting Through Shit” as they bravely, and drunknly sit through the terrible Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2. With a little bit of drunkeness and a whole lot of berating a bad movie its just a fun time as they discuss the movie.
So far May 2013 has been a big year for sci-fi movies and After Earth is one of the last ones coming out this month. Starring Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith this movie has been kind of in the background as other films like Iron Man and Star Trek Into Darkness have dominated the media this month. Still, After Earth is interesting and very different from the other science fiction coming out this month, and this behind the scenes footage gives a nice look at the production. Follow us after the jump here for more information on the movie.
Here’s the first set photo from the new Godzilla movie slated for a 2014 release. Not a whole lot to go off of here beside it being a subway car pretty clearly under attack, and a lot of green screen. Considering the last American made Godzilla movie was rather bad, this new one has to do a fair bit to break out of that shadow. Hopefully that green screening pays off and we get a cool scene out of this and the others.
Christopher Nolan Possibly Helming Next Bond Movie
Written by: Ben
I’m no a big fan of reporting too many rumors, because in Hollywood there are too many out there and too many that don’t come true. But as this is one involves a series I care a lot for, a director we all love and is based on a real offer, its too much to let pass. So the potential of Christopher Nolan to direct the next James Bond movie is like getting chocolate in my peanut butter, and I just gotta share. Follow us through the jump for some more details on this.
New trailer for The Europa Report starring Sharlto Copley (District 9) has hit the web and its definitely an interesting one. Following a team of astronauts to the moon of Jupiter, Europa, we get a movie that a bunch of science magazines apparently call a super realistic look at space travel. But of course, that isn’t all that we have here and things go wrong quickly, but you can learn more after the jump if still interested.
Reel Review: Star Trek Into Darkness

It would be a lie if I were to start this review claiming I wasn’t a fan of Star Trek in general. I wouldn’t identify as a “Trekkie” per say, but my father was a fan of Star Trek: TOS and its movies as well as getting big into Star Trek: The Next Generation which I also loved. So I was with that group of fans who were apprehensive for Star Trek (2009) and when it came out and was so good, I was elated and anxious for more, and as such I have been waiting very impatiently for Star Trek Into Darkness. With the mystery and rumor behind the character played by Benedict Cumberbatch, and the expectations, there was a lot stacked against this movie that it had to live up to. I waited until the midnight screening instead of an advanced one because I wanted to be able to have that experience again, and I’m writing this on 5 hours of sleep, so I guess I should get into telling you if it was worth all of that effort and if you should spend the same kind of energy.
