New trailer for THE SORCERER'S APPRENTICE reminds me of JUMPER 

It's probably the car transformation scene, but this trailer feels a bit too similar to Jumper, which is my least favorite film of 2008. Jumper is the movie that inspired me to write my first film review (I wrote about video games before that). I felt cheated by the marketing. The portions of this trailer that don't remind me of Jumper are similar to National Treasure and The Mummy. This makes sense. Director Jon Turteltaub also made National Treasure. We shall see if they finally get an urban wizard story right. The Sorcerer's Apprentice hits theaters July 16, 2010.

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 3D is DreamWorks' best animated movie since SHREK

Rating:

I didn't expect much after seeing its trailer, but How to Train Your Dragon is not your typical Dreamworks animated movie. For the first time in a long time, the studio has stepped up its game and produced something memorable. Dragon is a DreamWorks movie on par with Pixar. Though it's based loosely on a book from Cressida Cowell, it is also one of the best video game movies I've seen, blending elements from some of the warmer Legend of Zelda games and the visceral feel of Panzer Dragoon. Children, parents, gamers, adults, and even cynics will find something to enjoy.
