Nordling Reviews TERMINATOR: GENISYS!

Avoid.

If you watched any of the trailers, TERMINATOR: GENISYS’s marketing campaign spent a lot of time spoiling crucial plot points.  They even got James Cameron himself to give his Godfather’s blessing to the new movie, and Arnold’s always been a workhorse when it comes to selling his films.  I’ve been a Schwarzenegger fan since I was a kid, seeing CONAN THE BARBARIAN for the first time.  I’m always rooting for him to succeed.  I imagine it’s a lot like my dad seeing everything John Wayne ever did, even when Wayne advanced in years and he was no longer the box office draw he once was.  There’s a brand loyalty there that’s difficult to shake, so it definitely makes me wince a little bit to say that TERMINATOR: GENISYS is a terrible movie, full of bluster and nonsense.  Don't be mad at the TERMINATOR: GENISYS trailers giving too much plot away. Instead, appreciate how the ad campaign actually warned you of the film’s awfulness ahead of time.
 
GENISYS, like JURASSIC WORLD, rides in on waves of nostalgia, and that may be enough for audiences.  But whatever you may think of James Cameron, he knew not to overstuff his two TERMINATOR films with more plot and action than they needed.  The first TERMINATOR is tight as a drum, and the second matches its spectacle with a big heart worn prominently on the sleeve. They work because they never try to be above the audience, while at the same time giving the audience

Hey folks, Harry here with the first trailer for Billy Ray's remake of SECRET IN THEIR EYES, starring Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and Chiwetel Ejiofor.  The original film came from Argentina back in 2009 from director Juan Jose Campanella - and was a helluva film.   Here's the original trailer for the 2009 film:
 



The feature is fantastic, seek it out - it's pretty widely available. Now Billy Ray is better known as a screenwriter than a director, having written the screenplays for the original HUNGER GAMES as well as CAPTAIN PHILLIPS, but he has directed a couple of films. The best of which was SHATTERED GLASS. You may remember that film as direct evidence that Hayden Christensen wasn't inherently a bad actor. He did a helluva job on that film and was duly praised for the work. I have to say, I really like this trailer - and it seems to be some of Julia Roberts' best work in recent memory. Here's the first trailer, check it out:



Looks pretty good, eh? I like that Dean Norris is in this!  Love that guy!
 
Keep it cool,

Watch Ben Grimm rock out sans pants in latest FANTASTIC FOUR spot!

Grimm rocks out with the cock out?!?!?!

Hey folks, Harry here...   So this happened:
 
 
It comes from the new TV spot here....  and man...  somebody hand Ben Grimm a pair of stretchy pants.  That boy needs some serious drawers right about now.    It's one thing for the world to realize he has the most extreme case of Eczema ever - but to clearly show that for some reason his genitals are now completely gone...   So there's no way for him and Alicia Masters to consummate their love?!?!?!   Although, I really did wonder how that worked.   But now we know, it didn't.  Now we know why she went with Silver Surfer.  I can't stop starring at the THING crotch - it is hypnotic...   There's a few microns of new imagery in this - but not a lot:
 



Keep it cool,

This trailer introduces us to Son Of CREED!

Ryan Coogler directed the film.

This is our first real look at Ryan Coogler’s ROCKY sequel/update, CREED, and the first thing that jumps out is how cool they’re playing it with the original property. Sly doesn’t show up until well into this trailer, with the first minute-and-a-half being dedicated to setting up this story about a young, ambitious Philadelphia boxer without any connection to Apollo or Rocky.
 
As much as I loved FRUITVALE STATION (which is a lot), I have to admit that seeing the character of Rocky again is what gave me the biggest charge I got out of this trailer, as I’ll assume will be the case for most of you. Stallone's character has a certain relationship with pop culture that is beyond even something like Arnold's TERMINATOR; there's a palpable emotional connection between people and the character, and despite ROCKY V, Sly has done a good job of keeping the fires of all the ROCKY love out there stoked. In fact, the idea that this is ROCKY VII seems way more exciting than this story about a young hotshot trying to escape his father's shadow.
 
The bulk of the imagery recalls the original film, the contemporary Philly-set ROCKY BALBOA, and even a little of THE WIRE (possibly in part due to Jordan and the quick appearance by Wood Harris), as well as other fight dramas. In fact, this trailer makes it seem almost like a remake of the original, which of course it can’t be due to Creed Jr.’s privileged upbringing and the

I am – Hercules!!
Inspired by the big-screen slasher movie franchise created by Kevin Williamson (“Dawson’s Creek,” “The Following,” “Stalker”), the MTV version of “Scream” comes to us from “Matador” co-creators Jay Beattie and Dan Dworkin.
The New York Times says:
... The one episode of the new series made available for review vacillates between sort of scary and trying too hard. …
The Los Angeles Times says:
… For younger viewers just discovering irony and metafiction and possibly not acquainted with the screen originals, which have done them to death, this may seem fresh and fun. …
The San Francisco Chronicle says:
... The performances are bland, robotic and uninteresting--clearly these actors were recruited for their looks, rather than their acting chops. And most of the main cast white, which is inexcusable in this day and age and completely unrealistic. …
The Boston Globe says:
... more soapy than scary …
The Boston Globe says:
... thoroughly mediocre, with a cast of actors who are generically pretty playing characters who are generic types. …
The Boston Herald says:
... while the “Scream” films kept audiences jumping, “Scream” the TV series risks putting viewers to sleep. …
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says:
... Whether "Scream" can overcome Noah's legitimate concerns about adapting a slasher movie for TV remains to be seen. But tonight's premiere gets the show off to a strong creative start. …
Variety says:
... leverages the initial murder to build suspense without much actually happening during the remainder of the hour, using
