Warm Bodies [Review]

Warm Bodies [Review]
Warm Bodies takes place eight years after the start of a zombie plague that turned the world into a desolate wasteland. Our main zombie character only known as “R” (Nicholas Hoult) is living out his undead life by wandering an abandoned airport, occasionally grunting with his fellow zombie friend “M” (Rob Cordry) and wondering (through interior monologue) whether or not he can come out of this... 

Margaret’s Trailer Park: Horrible Bosses

Anyone that’s ever had a boss they really hated, I mean really, really hated, will be able to understand the premise behind the new comedy Horrible Bosses. The bosses of our main characters, played by Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day, are so vicious, nasty, crude, self-serving, (you get the picture) that the three decide the only possible course of action would be to kill their horrible... 

Margaret’s Trailer Park: Submarine

Brought to us from The Weinstein Company with Ben Stiller as an executive producer we have Submarine, the story of a British boy who desperately wants to be the protagonist of his own story. Based on a novel, Submarine looks to be an appealing, quirky, weird teenage romance and a look at everyday life in this strange yet intriguing coming of age story. I can’t speak for the rest of the world, but... 

Margaret’s Trailer Park: Everything Must Go

I see the name Will Ferrell anymore and half of me wants to cringe. There are movies he’s done that I adore (Stranger Than Fiction, Elf) and others that have lacked when it comes to being the total comedy package (Land of the Lost, Old School). After I unshielded my eyes and watched the newly released trailer for Everything Must Go I have to believe it will be one of the Ferrell films not to miss.... 

Margaret’s Trailer Park: Paul

If you’re a fan of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, then the new movie Paul set to release March 18th needs no introduction. Starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, the comedic duo from across the pond, the film highlights two UFO/Alien buffs who set out to explore Area 51 only to find an actual alien. The catch: this isn’t the typical alien in the desert moviegoers are used to. The alien Paul is voiced... 

Margaret’s Trailer Park: I Love You Phillip Morris

Just when you thought Jim Carrey had settled down and left the big screen forever (aka: a few months/years), he’s back with a role that is sure to turn a few heads. Based on a true Texas story, Carrey stars in I Love You Phillip Morris as Russell, a man obsessed with a life of cons, crime, and repeated jail escapes. Russell’s criminal life leads him into fate’s arms with the meeting of and becoming... 

Letters to Juliet [DVD]

With a box of chocolates on one side and a box of tissues on the other, I was ready for Letters to Juliet, but surprisingly the film is not completely the fluff film it presents itself to be. Not completely anyway. Letters to Juliet begins as Sophie, played by Amanda Seyfried, is off on a pre-honeymoon trip to Italy with her fiancé Victor (Gael Garcia Bernal) before the opening of his Italian restaurant... 

Margaret’s Trailer Park: Morning Glory

Taking us behind the scenes of all of those early morning shows is Morning Glory, and while this could be a film about how the horrific and fluff stories a journalist comes into contact with can change their life, this isn’t that movie. Morning Glory follows a desperate and jobless character played by Rachel McAdams, who takes the first position that is offered to her, working at a morning show that... 

Margaret’s Trailer Park: The Other Guys

We’ve all seen the suave yet tough police movies where the detectives figure it the crime at just the right moment and can backup their findings with muscle if the bad guys put up a fight. The kinds of films where Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson are partners and steal every scene for audiences everywhere. The Other Guys has an element of that, including Samuel and Dwayne just as we expect them,... 

Margaret’s Trailer Park: Easy A

Emma Stone, the it girl from Zombieland and Superbad, captures a starring role in Easy A, the story of a high school girl who fakes more than just the big O. Bringing nerds into good favor with the “in” crowd, Olive (Stone) fakes sex to give the guys a break and help them stop getting picked on at school. However, as her fake sex life picks up, the real virgin Olive finds her life paralleling...
