New J.J. Abrams/Spielberg SUPER 8 teaser trailer arrives (video)

These videos keep getting taken down, but here is the teaser trailer for the upcoming Steven Spielberg produced and J.J. Abrams directed action flick, Super 8. It debuted with Iron Man 2 at midnight last night. The title refers to the brand of the 8 mm camcorder that supposedly records the event. This appears to be a merger of Spielberg style action films and J.J. Abrams Cloverfield project (a favorite of mine). Abrams is very hot right now, producing last year's Star Trek and a number of successful TV shows including Lost, Fringe, Felicity, Alias, and the upcoming series Undercovers. He also wrote Joy Ride and Armageddon. Not bad.

This looks fun, though Deadline reports that it hasn't begun shooting yet. Super 8 is scheduled to hit theaters next summer. What do you guys think?

STAR TREK vs. STAR WARS video by 20-year-old amateur

I wish I had special effects skillz like these guys. The video was made by a 20-year-old named Bill Parker in his hometown of Warrenville, Illinois and picked up as a story by NBC Chicago. My favorite part of the story: he scared his mom. Mothers never cease to be amazed by special effects.

Parker's effects looked so real his mom worried he blew up parts of town.

"I was slightly concerned that the possibly there was some actual fire involvement in the making of the video," Julie Parker said. "I was worried about insurance liability and lawyer fees."

Parker assured his mom he created the cell tower and public works garage wall explosions.

Though I don't think Star Wars got much of a shot here, the falling letters are creative. What do you guys think?

My 10 favorite films of 2009; also, Happy New Year!

It's the end of the year. You know, that time of the season when every website and publication names the "greatest" or "best" films of the year. I don't plan to tell you what the "best" movies of the year are, but here are my ten favorites of the many many of films I saw. Out of everything this year, these are the films that best captured my interest. These are movies I wanted to go see again and again. They're the ones I'll be adding to my DVD collection and recommend to friends. They are listed in no particular order.

Bruce Greenwood and David Walliams join "Dinner for Schmucks"

With each month comes a new Dinner for Schmucks casting decision. In August Zach Galifianakis signed on; in September Stephanie Szostak came onboard as the female lead; and now Bruce Greenwood and David Walliams are having a seat. Greenwood will play a billionaire and Walliams a Swiss banker Paul Rudd tries to impress. Earlier this year, Bruce Greenwood played a pretty memorable role in Star Trek as Capt. Christopher Pike. You know, the man who dared Kirk to do better. He's a great actor with good comedic timing--he should fit in. And if you've ever seen Little Britain (or Little Britain USA), you know David Walliams is a real talent. I wish that show would drop the laugh track, but I still found it pretty funny. Here's a good skit from Little Britain.
