Film Review: ‘Snowpiercer’

“By the end, the film reveals itself as a surprisingly thoughtful contemplation of man’s inhumanity to his fellow man, and whether mankind is worth trying to save at all. Somber stuff, to be sure, but not without flashes of hope, and a steady infusion of Bong’s dark, quirky humor.” We’ve been following this movie as early as pre-production, and hope to get to see it on a big screen. Check out the trailer and the (chilling–in more ways than one) and animated prequel that sets up the premise, also re-blogged here from Variety. We completely trust Bong Joon-ho.

‘Gravity’ Trailer/Clip: Beautiful Space Terror (Clip of the Week)

This made my heart speed up so much I didn’t even notice George Clooney was involved, or recognize his voice, and I can usually pick his voice up just from commercials (I’m married, but my hormones still work just fine).  Just remember to breathe when you watch this… breathe…
