While the first trailer for Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln biopic featured Daniel Day-Lewis in a haze of weepy and maudlin Oscar-bait shots, accompanied by appropriately portentous music, the new Lincoln trailer that aired last night during the first presidential debate of the 2012 race is pretty fiery.  In fact, it was far more impressive and inspiring than watching...

Every generation must confront its share of horrors, disappointments, and betrayals—but perhaps no greater human sin was ever wrought upon the Earth than that of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (note: that might be a moderate exaggeration), a film which essentially took the collective childhood of an entire generation, and, well, you’ve probably...

After spending over a decade toiling in the near-extinction of development hell, it looks like Jurassic Park 4: The Unnecessary Sequel is finally going to happen, if only because it’s still a little too early to remake the first film but Universal still needs to wring some money from the property.  Thus, a decade-late sequel to a franchise that was never that great in the first...
