Last but not least, here is HST’s list of favorite video games from the past year. And what a year it was, with huge titles coming out and an epic fall season to cap off the year. Plenty of sequels and a few new IPs to boot, so there are plenty of games to mention even without the honorable title and seat on high as the crowned favorite. [Read more...]
This week’s Suggestion Box contains trailers for the movies Hereafter and Priest, my brief writeup for some of the premiered shows this fall, and then videos for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and Portal 2 in games.
Hereafter Trailer - The newest film paring Clint Eastwood as director and Matt Damon has Damon cast as a genuine psychic who has trouble living with his ability connected to the afterlife, interweaving stories of those who come into contact with him, bringing questions of their own about what lies ahead due to personal experiences. Not to put too much into the trailer, but the brief clips alone of the acting shows a glimmer of the performances ahead, which will hopefully live up to what comes in the film.
Looks like it is another week full of awesome gaming videos and far too few movie trailers. We’ve got a trailer for The Freebie, and videos for the games Brink, Hydrophobia, the new Mass Effect 2 DLC, Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, Portal 2, and Vanquish.
The Freebie Trailer – A film in which a couple (played by Dax Shepard and Katie Aselton) toys with the idea that it would be okay if each was given a free pass to pursue a one night stand with someone else.
In this week’s Suggestion Box we’ve got the movie trailer for 127 hours, a trailer for the new AMC TV show The Walking Dead, and a whole heap of video game videos from Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, Brink, Halo: Reach, James Bond 007: Blood Stone, and Portal 2.
127 Hours Trailer – Remember back in 2003 when news broke that a man was forced to cut off his own arm after becoming stuck between a rock and a hard place? Well, now it’s time for Aron Ralston’s story to become even more famous with a movie. Let’s just hope that James Franco doesn’t have to get too disgustingly graphic with that act. Ugh… Just thinking about it is making my goldfish swim back up my throat… Stupid delicious cheddar cheese crackers…
Let Me In International Trailer - Many of you might remember that a couple years ago a Swedish film titled Let the Right One In was released, based on the vampire novel of the same name. Well, it didn’t take long for the English version to get made with Chloe Moretz as the young vampire (you might remember her as the best part of Kick-Ass). Even though the novel and foreign film are still on my to do list I cannot help but get excited for the newest adaptation. Check it out for yourselves here.
Operation: Endgame Red Band Trailer – An action/comedy in which groups of assassin’s start attacking each other in an underground base. What more could you ask for? Oh, you want Zach Galifianakis as an ex-spy? You got it. Check it out here.
Paranormal Activity 2 Teaser Trailer – The sequel to the beyond creepy first film seems to be bringing back a familiar face if the shadowy figure is who I think it is, which does not look good for the new family to be haunted. I must say that I am really intrigued to see how this one is going to be shot because the footage shown so far has not been handheld, but looks more like security camera footage (and a baby monitor?). I will say now if that dog dies I will hate this film with a fiery passion. Oh, and please don’t harm the baby either. Check it out here. And if you haven’t seen the first yet, grab a buddy and do so now.
