Lost Season 6 (Comic-Con)…

Posted in Commercials, Television, Uncategorized on July 29, 2009 by Matt

Just recently at the San Diego Comic-Con, the Lost panel showed off some promo videos to give us an idea of where the sixth season was going. Since the creators have told us that the time travel part of Lost was over, looks like we’ll be seeing the characters in an alternate reality. I’m very curious as to how the show will be set up, because word has it that there won’t be any flashbacks or flashforwards during the final season. There are so many questions I have and absolutely can’t wait to see what these crazy bastards have in store for us starting February 2010.

P.S…There’s a poster lurking around the Web, that I believe was at Comic-Con, that showed all of the characters from season 1-5. Does this mean that Oceanic 6 never crashed on the island and the characters have gone on to live ‘normal’ lives. Well check out the videos from Comic-Con down below, and see what you think.

The Pacific…

Posted in Movie Trailers, Movies, Television, TV Episodes on June 22, 2009 by Matt

Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg present The Pacific, a miniseries on HBO focusing on American soldiers and the war against the Empire of Japan.  From what I’ve seen in the preview (below), it will be told in a similar fashion as Band of Brothers and focus on the lives of certain U.S. soldiers.

Every year, I get in this mood to watch Saving Private Ryan (which I watched the other day).  And after I do that, I usually watch Band of Brothers (which I’m probably going to start doing in the next day or so), so I was extremely excited to watch the preview today, because a friend of mine was telling me about it and I actually never heard that they were making this miniseries.  The Pacific which stars Joseph Mazzello (Jurassic Park — that’s right, the kid), James Badge Dale (24), and Jon Seda; and is expected to premier March 2010 and will consist of 10 (one-hour) episodes.

‘Carousel’…

I like this video…A LOT.  Created by Adam Berg, ‘Carousel‘ is a short film which promotes the new Philips Cinema 21:9 LCD Television.  And man, they a great job promoting the sh-t out of it with ‘Carousel‘ and its frozen 3D world.  Check out the video below.

P.S. – Does anyone else think a hint of the ‘Watchmen‘ opening credits played a part in the filming of this short movie?

Brüno (Red Band Trailer)…

The red band trailer for Sasha Baron Cohen’s, Brüno, has been posted.  As most people know, Brüno is just another one of Cohen’s hilariously awesome characters he created for his HBO series ‘Da Ali G Show’.  Since it has already been reported that the upcoming movie has received an NC-17 rating by the MPAA, it seems like it’s going to break the barriers set in ‘Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan‘ (2006) and go even further to awkwardly embarrass random people.  I was actually surprised at how funny Cohen’s 2006 film was. By the looks of the trailer, it looks like the second film will just as funny as ‘Borat.
