If you like food – great food – then May 9th, 2014, should probably be circled on your calendar. Or since 99% of us aged 40 and younger probably don’t actually have physical calendars hanging on our kitchen walls anymore, go ahead and add it to your iPhone and Outlook calendars, because the new Jon Favreau movie called Chef awaits. Starring an impressive cast list that features Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sofia Vergara, Oliver Platt, and the legendary Dustin Hoffman, Chef pits Jon Favreau’s main character in a tricky employment situation that likely many of us have already or will face at some point in our lives: working for someone else, or taking a chance and starting his own business, which in this case is a food truck. While this movie screams high quality date night material, there are sure to be plenty of laughs if you want to see this with friends; regardless, enjoy the official Chef trailer and then hit the link below for more!
What are up to this Friday night? If you’re looking for something different, then head on over to your local theater to catch the brand new Vinny Chase – I mean Adrian Grenier – film, Goodbye World. Although I will likely forever associate Mr. Grenier as the Entourage movie star, his latest movie that’s due out this Friday has some real potential: set in present day, America is hit by a disastrous computer virus called, coincidentally, “Goodbye World”. With utilities, airports, and just about everything imaginable shut down, Vinny and his close friends fall back on their post-apocalyptic survival skills and go off-grid somewhere in Northern California. Everything seems like a cool camping trick until local militias start forming, which is where it appears this plot is going. Check out the trailer, and hit the link below for more slightly qualified movie trailer discussion!
Raise your hand if this kind of movie sounds appealing to you: Sci-fi, Laurence Fishburne, and lots of M-4’s (that’s AR’s for all my civilian counterparts out there). No, this isn’t another Battle for Los Angeles – which was a great movie nonetheless – or even another Starship Troopers Redux. The name of this intriguing Summer 2014 potential blockbuster is The Signal, and the exciting trailer above gives us enough information to want more, but not enough to truly know what we’re, or Nic, the main character is dealing with. As a huge fan of sci-fi, as well as Mr. Fishburne’s acting resume – not to mention M-4’s! – The Signal looks like it has potential to be an awesome film.

Raise your hand if you were around in 1987; most of you I am guessing weren’t. I was, but I was only four years old, so the original RoboCop movie didn’t grace my eyes until the early to mid nineties when I witnessed the Paul Verhoeven film for the first time. To call the series “successful” really depends on how you define the word: in the box office, RoboCop destroyed its competition, spawning two sequels that ended up in most folks’ VHS collections (or “LaserDisc”!). Although some publications rate the original RoboCop as one of the greatest action films of all time, I have always thought it was pretty lame. So here we go yet again, with the official trailer for RoboCop (otherwise known as RoboCop 4 in my opinion), starring Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, and Gary Oldman; enjoy the footage, and hit the link below for my trailer reaction below.
