Trailer Trash: Infertile Power
Children of Men: Not entirely what I was expecting, but in a good way. It's science-fiction, but it looks completely real. And by the end of the clip it looks almost like a triumph-of-the-human-spirit thing. Which is where my complete trust in Alfonso Cuaron comes in handy. Am I crazy to think this could really be something special? I know I want to see it, immediately. Clive Owen and Julianne Moore don't hurt in that regard, either.
TMNT: Yes, those initials do indeed stand for "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," and between this and the Transformers movie, my childhood has been officially raped. I'm sorry, there already was a Ninja Turtles movie, and it was perfect. It was also maybe the last gasp for rubber-suited Jim Henson puppetry in mainstream entertainment (sorry, Farscape). These new CGI turtles with their sleek animated sheen aren't going to cut it.
