Glee's Chris Colfer Makes his Move to the big Screen in 'Struck by Lightning' !

Colfer, who plays the super adorable Kurt Hummel on Fox's Glee has finally made his journey to the big screen.  In Struck by Lightning a film that Colfer not only stars in but also penned is the story of an outcast teen who blackmails his classmates into helping him with a writing project. While the film doesn't do anything adventurous by showing the story of the outcast teen does however strike a chord and really taps into the emotional core.  In the end, I just hope the film isn't riddled with cliches. If it can steer clear of that problem than it looks pretty promising!  Check out the trailer after the jump!

'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' teaser trailer!

The teaser trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has just released and at first glance this looks fan 'bloody' tastic! Lincoln, played by up and comer Benjamin Walker takes the historical figure and places him in a whole other world (and that's an understatement).  The film was penned by Seth Grahame-Smith who also wrote the book. What do you guys this of this badass portrayal of 'Honest Abe' ?

Jeremy Renner in 'The Bourne Legacy' Trailer!

Alright, so I'll admit I'm not really into the whole Bourne movie franchise which stars Matt Damon. However, I must admit, the upcoming installment which will star Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker, Mission Impossible 4, Avengers) looks pretty badass!  And while Damon is not taking the lead on this Borne film, it's still in capable hands as Tony Gilroy, the original director of Bourne films has returned to direct. The brief glimpse at the film in this teaser trailer has me pretty excited to see this! What do you guys think??


'Dan Rad' talks about Marriage Equality!

Daniel Radcliffe recently spoke with 'Attitude' magazine about why he's a supporter of Gay Marriage.  This is no surprise as he has been influential in supporting the Teen Crisis Hotline The Trevor Project which helps prevent teen suicides in the LGBTQ Community. Check out what the star of the recent Woman in Black had to say!

On teen suicides: “It’s not surprising when you consider how accessible a bullying victim is now. You used to be able to escape at the end of a day: now you can be hunted by mobile phone, Facebook, Twitter. It’s terrifying.”

On sexuality: “Don’t define as straight or gay, define yourself as people and help another person if they’re in trouble.”

On marriage equality: “The ultimate reason gay marriage should be legalized everywhere is because, as a kid, you look to your mum and dad and they’re married; then you look at the gay couple who’ve been together for the same amount of time, but because they can’t get married their relationship doesn’t seem the same. Yes, gay marriage is about symbolically blessing a relationship, but the larger issue is about transmitting a fundamental message about equality. Gay people should have equality in law everywhere.”

'Amazing Spiderman' Trailer Debuts!

Early this morning the full length trailer for the upcoming The Amazing Spiderman debuted.  And I've got to say, while it looks fun and definitely something to see in theaters it felt too much like Batman Begins. Now some of you may argue that, 'that's the point!".  And while yes, it is supposed to be dark and gritty, as this tends to be the direction most new Superhero films are going. It just felt ripped from the pages Nolan's Batman ideas! The line that REALLY got me was Dennis Learys' "We will arrest the masked vigilante known as Spiderman."  WHAT?! Come on now, if that doesn't wreak Batman dialogue then I don't know what does. But what are your guys' thoughts?  Did you like the trailer and are you excited to see the film starring The Social Networks'  Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone?? Let me know on the RBR Facebook Page!

Sometimes You Need to Watch Depressing Shit then Watch People Get Ripped in Half by Sharks!: 'Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close', 'Beginners' and 'Shark Night 3D' Reviews

Directed by Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours, The Reader) I must admit I was really looking forward to this film as I am a HUGE Billy Elliot fan. However, the lengthy tale (2hrs and 9mins) of one families experience on 9/11 or as the boy in the film refers to 'the worst day' didn't really grab me until the second hour.  The introduction to this family, Sandra Bullock, Tom Hanks and introducing Thomas Horn as Oscar was pretty jarring and felt a little all over the place. The film  does however do a great job establishing the special relationship that the boy and his father have.  Oscar, who I believe has aspergers  has trouble interacting with people and Hanks' character is constantly trying to get him to interact with others. Unfortunately, it takes the father's death to get the boy to do this.

One days the boy gathers enough courage to go into his fathers' closet which still looks exactly same as before his death.  While snooping around for something to connect him to his father, he ends up knocking down a vase that contains a key in an envelope labeled simply, Black.

What ensues is a hilarious scene of the boy looking up over 100 people with the last name Black in the phone book that he thinks this key could belong to and in the end somehow be able to make sense of his father's death for him and give him some closure.
