Trailer Time: Battle: Los Angeles – New, Intense Trailer!

I have a love/hate relationship with movie trailers. On the one hand, I love getting little flashes of visuals from upcoming movies to whet my appetite. But I hate having things spoiled for me. So there’s a fine line between “good” trailers and “bad” trailers.

This new trailer for Battle: Los Angeles has to be one of the most intense I’ve seen in a long time. I actually cringed when the helicopter is shot down and Aaron Eckhart runs out of a building with a child in hand…

It’s that kind of “reality” in a science fiction film that I can really get into.

Now I’m getting excited about this film… March 11, 2011 is a ways off, but Battle: Los Angeles looks worth the wait.

Here’s the synopsis:

For years, there have been documented cases of UFO sightings around the world — Buenos Aires, Seoul, France, Germany, China. But in 2011, what were once just sightings will become a terrifying reality when Earth is attacked by unknown forces. As people everywhere watch the world’s great cities fall, Los Angeles becomes the last stand for mankind in a battle no one expected. It’s up to a Marine staff sergeant and his new platoon to draw a line in the sand as they take on an enemy unlike any they’ve ever encountered before.

And here’s the new trailer:

Trailer Time: Battle: Los Angeles – March 11, 2011

Hey there…

The concept behind Battle: Los Angeles sparked some interest a few months ago when I first heard about the film. I think the gist was to take an alien invasion story and make it a bit like Saving Private Ryan. I especially like the CNN footage. Some impressive looking stuff in spots.

This trailer actually looks pretty darn cool. Next year (like every year) will be an interesting time for movies…

No Reservations was Half a Film…

Hi all…

Another movie I had a chance to see on DVD a few weeks ago was No Reservations, starring Abigail Breslin, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Aaron Eckhart. If I had to give some advice about this film, I’d start it about 45 minutes in. Ignore the beginning and start there, you’ll enjoy it more.

[rating:2/4]

You can see more about this film at IMDB here.

This is the story of the head chef (Zeta-Jones) for a well liked restaurant who suddenly has to take care of her sister’s daughter (Breslin) after a car accident. During this awkward phase, another chef fills in at the restaurant (Eckhart) and makes a mess of things…

What did I like? The relationships seemed genuine between Zeta-Jones, Breslin, and Eckhart once the movie got going.

What didn’t I like? It’s just odd for a film clocked at 104 minutes that the first 45 was throwaway.

Ultimately, I liked the second half of the film. As such, I can’t give it more than 2/4. That’s about half, right?
