Extended Trailer: The Flash

Extended Trailer: The Flash

Somewhere in the back of my mind I knew that they were making a show about The Flash. However, I didn’t realize that it had already gone into production and that there were promos and clips already available. I have never read The Flash so I am not familiar with this character at all. The show is from the producers of Arrow, which makes me a little wary, since I am not a big fan of that show. Granted, I have only seen a few episodes and have been meaning to give it another try. This extended trailer is pretty… Read more »

Trailer: True Blood Season 7

Trailer: True Blood Season 7

The seventh and final season of True Blood premieres on June 22. I am way, way behind on this series even though I finished all of the books. I don’t know exactly what’s been going on in the show but, from this trailer, it looks like a battle is coming. Even though it’s pretty campy, I still enjoy the show and all of the man candy it provides. I am kind of bummed that it won’t be on anymore but it had a good run. Now that a bunch of seasons are on Amazon Prime, I may finally catch up…. Read more »

Trailer: The Book of Life

Trailer: The Book of Life

I went to the movies a couple of times this weekend and saw the trailer for The Book of Life both times. I am fan of creepy/cute and Day of the Dead so this movie is right up my alley. Visually, it looks pretty awesome and the story interests me as well. I will definitely be checking this one out in October.

Trailer: Kingsman: The Secret Service

Trailer: Kingsman: The Secret Service

Hi, everyone! I could not wait to post the new trailer for Kingsman: The Secret Service that was just released today. I heard about this movie a little while ago but did not know much about it except that Matthew Vaugh (Stardust) was directing and that it has a killer cast. I love gadgets and training sequences so this looks like it’s going to be a big win for me. Also – Colin Firth. For more info and stills from the production, check out comingsoon.net. Kingsman will be released this fall.

TV Trailer: Constantine

TV Trailer: Constantine

I  had no idea that NBC was producing a Constantine television series until a few weeks ago. Constantine is based on the DC Comics series Hellblazer. I read a bit of Hellblazer in high school and enjoyed it. There was a pretty bad movie adaptation years ago with Keanu Reeves and Rachel Weisz that I admit I have a soft spot for. It wasn’t very good but I love me some Rachel and Keanu. This trailer looks promising though. This Constantine actually looks like the Constantine from the comics which is a small good sign and the themes look pretty… Read more »

Teaser Trailer: Gone Girl

Teaser Trailer: Gone Girl

I am probably one of the few people left who has not yet read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. It’s on my bookshelf though, promise! I am a big fan of David Fincher though and I think this trailer definitely gives us that creepy vibe he’s so good at.  Excited to see this one and plan on reading it before the film comes out. Gone Girl hits theaters in October.

Trailer: X-Men: Days of Future Past

Trailer: X-Men: Days of Future Past

Ooh 20th Century Fox just released the full length trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past. I really can’t wait for this movie. I hope it’s good. I think this is also our first look at the Sentinels. They always kind of freaked me out as a kid.  Any other X-Men fans out there?

New Trailer: The Giver

New Trailer: The Giver

Good morning! The trailer for The Giver, based on the book of the same name by Lois Lowery, was just released today. Check it out! I haven’t read The Giver yet (shhhh don’t tell) and am an on the fence about the movie. I mean I love Meryl Streep but she is almost negated by Katie Holmes, who I feel is a really lifeless actor. The trailer is also pretty vague. Looks like any generic dystopian film right now, but I reserve judgement for now. What do you guys think? Anyone out there read the book already and can tell… Read more »

Trailer: Sin City

Trailer: Sin City

Looks like there is a new trailer for Sin City 2. I really liked the first Sin City so I am excited to see how this one turns our. Plus, JGL. ‘Nuff said. I love how these movies are shot. Good thing I actually just checked out the first Sin City trade paperback from the library to reacquaint myself with the story. Sin City 2 doesn’t hit theaters until this fall. .

Liv’s Current Obsession: Why I Love Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries

Liv’s Current Obsession: Why I Love Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries

Frequently, I find myself thanking Alethea (@frootjoos) over at Read Now, Sleep Later for introducing me to new television series.  Two of my favorites are Murdoch Mysteries from Canada and Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries from Australia.  I seriously think she has everyone watching these. Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries takes place in Melbourne in the later 1920’s, one of my favorite time periods.  It features actress, Essie Davis as the Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher, who fights injustice and solves murders with the help of a great cast of characters, a gold-plated pistol, and a dagger hidden under her skirt.  Shouldn’t all… Read more »
