New Trailer: The Iceman

Based on a true story, this crime thriller stars Michael Shannon, Winona Ryder, Ray Liotta, and Chris Evans.  For those of you who like gangster movies (I’m looking at you Dave Bernard), The Iceman looks right up your alley.








New Trailer: Only God Forgives

If you were hoping for not one but TWO dark independent movies with Ryan Gosling this season, well, you’re in luck.  Check out the trailer below for Only God Forgives. This is the latest movie from director Nicolas Winding Refn, who last teamed up with Gosling on the 2011 film Drive.  I am most intrigued by Kristin Scott Thomas, (most known for The English Patient) who looks and seems as though she just walked off an episode of “The Real Housewives” in this trailer.

Note: There is swearing in this trailer.








Random Film Stuff: Classic Film Reels as Art

Hey Movie Nerds! Check this out. It’s about every kind of awesome…if you’re the right kind of nerd, I suppose. Austrian photographer Reiner Riedler has created a series of photos (“The Unseen Seen”) that captures images of classic (mostly…some even I have never heard of) film reels. This may not sound like a terribly interesting thing to many people, but looking at the work it’s actually kind of cool. On some reels, if you know the films well, you can see how an overall style or color can be seen by looking at the reel as a whole. Some of them are a little less obvious, but still cool looking none the less. Check out Riedler’s work by clicking on the link below. Also, how cool of a name is Reiner?
