RT Clip from Tambay Obenson on Vimeo. Shadow and Act gives us the longest and best look so far at the action/drama Red Tails about the famous World War II Tuskegee Airmen, the first African American combat pilots in the US armed forces. As was the case with the trailer which came out in the (read…)

John Cleese and Terry Jones in Monty Python's The Meaning of Life (1983)

If you’ve been a reader of this blog for long, you might already know this clip is something of an off and on Thanksgiving tradition around here. I can’t help it. It will always remind me of this, the most gluttonous of holidays. Thanks to all of you who have been checking in to Living (read…)

Asa Butterfield and Chloe Grace Moretz in Martin Scorsese's Hugo

Hey, thanks to Yahoo for putting a stinking ad in front of this charming little clip that isn’t much longer than the ad itself. Check it out after the jump and then go buy stuff. Obey! Martin Scorsese’s adaptation of Brian Selznick’s Caldecott Medal-winning story (The Invention of Hugo Cabret) starring Asa Butterfield, Chloë Grace (read…)


Woody Allen: A Documentary will air nationally on Sunday, November 20th and Monday, November 21st.

1 minute and 42 seconds of Blue Velvet you haven’t seen before, unless of course you saw it yesterday when it first started turning up online. This is from MGM’s new blu-ray which includes 50 minutes of material (until recently believed lost forever) that had been edited out as Lynch trimmed the film from 4 (read…)

Ordinarily I’m not to keen on running clips of movies, but The Rum Diary isn’t exactly a summer blockbuster. Besides, I wasn’t at all crazy about the trailer and I’m happy to see the clip above strikes a much less broad tone and that Depp isn’t doing his Thompson shtick quite so strongly. Here’s the (read…)

So many great scenes to choose from in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Apologies for the Portuguese subtitles, but this was the best version I could find. Also, best wishes to Elizabeth Taylor.

Happy New Year everyone. When I raise a Manhattan tonight around midnight, I’ll be toasting world peace, reserved seating in movie theaters and you, but not necessarily in that order. Here’s hoping 2011 turns out to be a year filled with health, happiness and wonderful times at the movies.

. (Later that same night…) . Merry Christmas everyone and Happy New Year.

There are still nearly 3 weeks left in the year, but TCM offers up its yearly tribute to those who have passed away. The song you’re listening to is Sophie Hunger’s “Headlights” from her 2010 album 1983 via: Awards Daily

You probably know I’m not a big fan of running clips of movies before they come out, yet here I am posting a few clips from John Cameron Mitchell’s Rabbit Hole starring Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart and Dianne Wiest. The thing is, I liked the movie yet I see it near the bottom of lists (read…)

Happy shopping, zombies.

I know I ran this clip a couple of Thanksgivings ago, but it’s the first thing I think of when the holiday built around people stuffing their pumpkin pie holes rolls around. Plus, I literally saw Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life for the first time on VHS on Thanksgiving. Needless to say, my mother (read…)

I know it’s ridiculous to start calling Oscars before the nominations have even been announced, but sometimes if you say something loud enough and often enough, it comes true. Black Swan is my favorite of the Oscar-buzziest movies (read my review here) and 75% of that is because of Natalie Portman. It’s a great performance (read…)

Alex Gibney’s Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer infuriated me for a couple of reasons. On one hand, it’s another story about a bright, motivated, talented politician being brought down by his inability to keep his pants zipped (see: Bill Clinton), but on the other hand it’s a reminder that personal lives (read…)

I’m not crazy about the current trend of running clips of movies before they come out, but it seems like awareness of Olivier Assayas’ (Summer Hours) epic Carlos isn’t as high as it should be so here you go: a spoiler free clip of Carlos the Jackal and his minions taking hostages during the 1975 (read…)

I’ve never been too crazy about Blake Edwards’ 10, but Dudley Moore is always good for a laugh and it’s a good movie-based way to celebrate today’s calendar anomaly.

Internet movie types ooh and ahh every time a new nugget from Matt Reeve’s remake of Tomas Alfredson’s Let the Right One In pops up. I don’t get it. The more I see, the more it looks just like the original. Why would anyone but the most extreme fetishist want it to be that way? (read…)

Stephen Dorff and Michelle Monaghan make nice for the camera, but there’s clearly a lot of tension between them just below the surface in this clip from Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere. Dorff plays a party-boy actor who gets thrown a curve ball when his daughter (Elle Fanning) shows up at his hotel room door. Somewhere will (read…)

If you thought the poster for Gaspar Noe’s Enter the Void was busy, wait until you get a load of the opening credits. via: Trailer Addict

The guy who did Tarantino vs. Coen is at it again with two more beloved filmmakers. As before, it doesn’t really add anything new to either artist, but it’s a fun collection of memorable scenes. The most overtly clever bit is the start of the second sequence with Peter Sellers and Joe Pesci. via: Vulture

I know, it’s been all trailers all the time around here lately, but what are you gonna do? This isn’t a trailer, but it’s a clip of another Sundance favorite. Through flashbacks, Blue Valentine simultaneously charts the flowering and disintegration of a romance between a couple played by Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams. Blue Valentine (read…)

Here are the first five minutes of Exit Through the Gift Shop. Billed as the first film from world-renowned, politically-minded graffiti artist Banksy, was a surprise premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January where it received generally strong reviews. Here’s the official synposis: Banksy is a graffiti artist with a global reputation whose work (read…)

Easter Bunny indeed.

Please enjoy this clip of Yojimbo on what would have been Akira Kurosawa’s 100th birthday.

Happy Cheap Excuse to Get Loaded on a Weekday, everybody. Put down your shamrock shakes, pour yourself an Irish whiskey (neat) and belly up to this wonderful clip from Joel and Ethan Coen’s Miller’s Crossing. Frank Patterson sings Danny Boy on the phonograph with an accompaniment by Albert Finney on the Tommy Gun.

The fine folks at Twitch have a clip of Bong Joon-ho’s Mother opening Friday. It’s a spoiler free bit showing “Mother” investigating the home of someone she believes to be the person behind a murder for which her son has been jailed. It’s only a small part of a longer scene (one of the better (read…)

If you know me, you’ll understand intuitively why a movie about a bitter, 40-something, uncomfortable in his own skin misanthrope in Los Angeles who doesn’t really know what he wants to do with himself would be appealing. Having said that, the original trailer for Noah Baumbach’s Greenberg starring Ben Stiller left me pretty cold. Maybe (read…)
