JT Film Review



A new batch of trailers coming your way from JT Film Review! Just to clarify, this is not a list of My Eagerly Anticipated movies or anything, just an observation of what we see coming to us in the future. Though some of them of course I will look forward to seeing. In no particular order, here is the Upcoming Movies Article, October ‘09 edition.


menwhostareatgoats—– The Men Who Stare at Goats —–

Geroge Clooney has a habit of using his immense star power to get some otherwise unfundable movies made. And most of he time they turn out pretty well. Solaris, Good Night and Good Luck, Syriana, Michael Clayton, etc. With the added star power of Ewan McGregor, Kevin Spacey, and Jeff Bridges, this could be interesting at the the very least. I’m all for a quirky dark comedy.

Release Date: November 6, 2009 —– TRAILER —–


upintheair-poster—– Up in the Air —–

George Clooney here again, directed this time by Indie poster boy Jason Reitman. He directed Juno and Thank You For Smoking, both of which are favorites of mine. Supporting cast includes Jason Bateman, J. K. Simmons, Vera Farmiga, Sam Elliot, and Zach Galifianakis. Many of them have worked with Reitman before, and with great results.

Release Date: December 25, 2009 —– TRAILER —–


shutter-island-poster—– Shutter Island —–

Martin Scorsese reteams with Leonardo DiCaprio for what looks to be a good old fashioned mystery thriller. Ben Kingsley, Mark Ruffalo, Christopher Plummer, and Jackie Earle Haley all have supporting roles. This likes it could be good, though the trailer seems equally cliched and intriguing. Martin Scorsese is a major talent however, and should not be underestimated.

Release Date: February 19, 2010 —– TRAILER —–

nightmareonelmstreetposter—– A Nightmare on Elm Street —–

I must admit I have never seen the original Nightmare on Elm Street. But remakes are all the rage nowadays, so it should come as no suprise that this is being redone. Jackie Earle Haley plays a great psycho (he was one of the only good things about Watchmen), but the trailer looks rather underwhelming.

Release Date: April 30, 2010 —– TRAILER —–

pirateradioposter—– Pirate Radio —–

A quirky-looking British comedy starring Bill Nighy, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Nick Frost, Rhys Ifans, and Kenneth Branagh? Hells yeah! Unfortunately reviews have been mixed at best. However the trailer makes me hope against hope. And it is a really great trailer. Kennth Branagh looks hilarious, as do the rest of the cast really. I’ll just hope some rumoured edits improve the film…

Realese Date: November 13, 2009 —– TRAILER —–

law-abiding-citizen—– Law Abiding Citizen —–

Everyone likes a good revenge flick, right? Well, at least I’ve always had a soft spot for them. (I was one of the 3 people in the world who liked Man on Fire.) And whatever you can say about his choice in movies, Gerard Butler is a good actor. Jamie Foxx as well has proved himself in movies such as Collateral and Ray.

Release Date: October 16, 2009 —– TRAILER —–

MAID_OneSheetfinal—– The Maid —–

To be honest I don`t know what to think of this movie, except I can’t wait to see it. (Although something tells me it won’t be coming to my local cinema.) I’ve always liked little movies based on relationships, etc. This looks serious, and the acting extremely naturalistic. It’s already been released, so hopefully I’l be able to gt it off of Amazon.

Release Date: July 17, 2009 —– TRAILER —–

bad_lieutenantorleans_poster– Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans –

Critics who have seen this movie love it. It garnered HUGE buzz at the Toronto International Film Festival. It is directed by critically acclaimed director Warner Herzog, and yet the trailer makes it look like another of the dreaded “Nic Cage with a bad haircut in action mode” movies. Nic Cage is a constantly under-rated actor, so I guess we’ll see…

Release Date: November 20, 2009 —– TRAILER —–

daybreakers_poster_med—– Daybreakers —–

Oh great, another vampire movie. This one looks like it has an interesting premise however. In a world of vampires, one vampire has found the “cure”. A couple intriguing points are touched on; substitutes for blood, vampire cures etc. The cast is stacked as well, with Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe, and Sam Neill. It has a neat visual sense as well.

Release Date: January 8, 2010 —– TRAILER —–
