Netflix Instant: TV and Movie Picks




If you've climbed out of your turkey coma, watched Thanksgiving football, and are tired from Black Friday shopping, now is the time to park yourself on the couch and watch some Netflix. 



STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Teaser is Here!



At least Abrams and crew know how to cut a trailer. I've not been pretty vocal about it here,  but I am over STAR WARS as a whole. The brand has saturated pop culture to the point of making what was once of the scariest villains in movies, Darth Vader, a punch line through merchandising. Lucas' decision to further alter the movies in the Blu-ray set further cemented my feelings. As such, when news of THE FORCE AWAKENS comes out, they're met with complete apathy. Still, I knew that the teaser would be a huge deal so I had to watch it and I'm glad I did. Check it out after the break thanks to the Star Wars YouTube channel.

The Local Haps - Turkey Week Edition



After having Jonesy do a great job with Local Haps in my absence, I'm back during this short Thanksgiving week. Thankfully (hahaha) there's a few really good screenings this week. Check them out after the break.


JURASSIC WORLD Trailer Drops And Everyone Should Hang On To Their Butts



It's been twelve years since we've tried to forget about JURASSIC PARK 3. I can't even tell much what that third one was about it was so forgettable. But now we have our first look at the new JURASSIC WORLD trailer, which brings all the nostalgia and warm feelings back that we first felt from the original film.

Here's the synopsis:
Twenty-two years after the events of JURASSIC PARK, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. This new park is owned by the Masrani Corporation. Owen (Pratt), a member of Jurassic World's on-site staff, conducts behavioral research on the Velociraptors, but things go awry when the research team accidentally unleash a genetically modified dinosaur into the park.
Check the trailer after the break.

PITCH PERFECT 2 Trailer is Aca-Awesome!


To say that Jonesy and I love PITCH PERFECT is an understatement. That's easily become one of our go-to "comfort" movies in the past few years. Thanks to Latino Review, we have a new poster, which you can see above, and more importantly, the Ellen Show YouTube page posted the new trailer!
