Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus Trailer

Once in a while a film so stupid and at the same time so incredibly awesome will come along that you know you have to see it.  What do you get when you mix B-movie icon Lorenzo Lamas and 80’s pop star Debbie Gibson with humongous prehistoric sea creatures? Well that’s easy: you get the […]

Transforminators Trailer

Director’s Michael Bay and McG have been exchanging words over whose giant robot movie will come out on top this summer: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen or Terminator Salvation. At one point McG even challenged Michael Bay to a penis-measuring contest to settle the argument once and for all. Can’t we all just get along […]

Terminator Salvation Review

Terminator Salvation wants to be a great film, but it has big shoes to fill.  The first two Terminator films were excellent, while the third was mediocre at best. Terminator Salvation aims to right the wrongs of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, bringing the franchise back to the darker more serious tone of the first […]

Thor has Found His Loki

Hello Everyone Jeff here, glad to be back and I’m very excited about this bit of casting news. Why am I excited? Director Kenneth Branagh has demonstrated an ability to spot talent time and time again for his many film adaptations of Shakespeare plays. He takes stage actors and casts them in unlikely film roles. His selection […]

Trailer for Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes

The first trailer for Guy Ritchie‘s Sherlock Holmes film starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law has hit the web. RocknRolla was a great return to form for Ritchie, I’m hoping he’ll continue the trend with Holmes. If the trailer is any indication Sherlock Holmes looks like it will be highly entertaining.

Captain Kirk’s Dad Cast as Thor

Deadline Hollywood Daily has confirmed that Chris Hemsworth; who most will recognize as the ill-fated George Kirk from J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek reboot, has been cast as Thor. The big screen adaptation of Marvel Comics’ Thor is being helmed by Kenneth Branagh, who many considered an unconventional choice to direct. Branagh’s involvement led many to believe […]

The Road Trailer

The big screen adaptation of Cormac McCarthy‘s post-apocalyptic novel The Road finally has a trailer. Director John Hillcoat, who made the excellent Aussie Western The Proposition, has been hard at work on The Road for nearly two years and his vision looks to be very faithful to the McCarthy’s novel. Initially slated for release last […]

My Little Pony Live-Action Film Trailer

With live-action iterations of Transformers and G.I. Joe both hitting theatres this summer, it’s easy to forget the other 1980’s cartoon/toy-line adaptation that will be coming to a theatre near you in the coming months.  I am of course referring to My Little Pony: Reign of Buttercup Sprinkles. What a delicious little send up of […]

Star Trek Review

As a life long Trekkie, I went into the new J.J. Abrams Trek reboot/sequel with my expectations set to stun—fearing that if I set them to kill I would end up vapourizing myself… whatever that means.  Phaser analogy aside, I knew that J.J Abrams’ vision of Star Trek would be different from that of its […]

Every Star Trek Theatrical Trailer

With the release of J.J. Abrams Star Trek reboot/prequel this week, Dork Shelf wanted to take a look back at the previous 10 Star Trek films—or at least their trailers. There have been great Trek movies like Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country and Star Trek: First Contact.  […]

20th Anniversary Screening of Troll 2 at The Bloor

If you were lucky enough to see the documentary Best Worst Movie at the Hot Docs Film Festival this past week then you know all about the movie Troll 2. Considered by many as possibly the worst film ever made, Troll 2 was filmed by an Italian director who barely spoke any English and was […]

Today is May 4th, which means that it’s Star Wars Day, May the Fourth be with you!
