The trailer for The Salvation just got released: http://screenrant.com/the-salvation-trailer-movie/

My ass will be in my recliner when this hits VOD at the end of the month. Looks like an exceptional western film; they're becoming increasingly difficult to find nowadays.

The first trailer for Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak is here: http://www.traileraddict.com/crimson-peak/trailer

I have no words... that's a damn good thing, by the way.

The three films that are on my must-see list at the moment are True Story, Clouds of Sils Maria, and Ex Machina. Looking forward to seeing Slow West, The End of the Tour (2015), and Z for Zachariah.

Let us know how it goes!

I saw Inside Out today! I can't say much about it, but it was a breath of fresh air.

Ah, I'm glad to hear Inside Out is good.

Tomorrowland was pretty good! It had an interesting message and I liked the way Tommorowland was presented. I think there might have been some cut dialogue or something, because a few things felt a bit vaguely explained. Not as good as some of Brad Bird's other films, but still a fun movie. I appreciate the fact that it's a sci-fi movie with a female protagonist. Overall, I'd recommend it.

The relationship between George Clooney's character and Athena felt a little weird at times, seeing as she looks like a young girl but he used to be in love with her. It makes sense in context, but it was still kinda weird 8D

I spied an Incredibles reference in the film- when Casey goes to the sci-fi shop, you can see a Mr Incredible action figure on the shelf. It falls down during the ensuing fight scene.

I think it got a higher age rating than it should have in my country- it was rated 12 rather than PG- but I suspect that was because there was a swear word in there that's a little too strong for the lower ratings.

Nausicaa- Not sure if I'll see it in theaters, because I'm strapped on cash. But when I do see it I will keep an eye out for the Incredibles cameo! (Also, P.S. Nausicaa, I'm moving to the UK in August!)

I'm a sucker for well done gangster pictures. This one looks to be epic.

I saw Tommorowland. I'll admit it was different thatn what I thought it was going to be. Felt like more gritty and mature version of Meet The Robinsons.

Thats a description that certainly gets me interested! How does it stack up to Bird's other films?

I watched Toy Story 3 the other night, and I had forgotten how good that film is. Great, amazing, are better words for it than good actually.

^I've really been meaning to rewatch TS3, and most other Pixar films in general lately! I saw Monsters University again a few days ago and I still really enjoy that. Underrated.
