#theWolverine teaser?

We’re all familiar with the concept of a movie trailer.  The trailer is typically a 30-second to 2-minute preview of a movie designed to ‘rope you in’.  The downside of the modern trailer is that it gives away too much, often several key action sequences or big laughs.


The next X-Man movie, the Wolverine [IMDB], is a quasi-reboot telling the tale of the unbreakable feral Canadian’s adventures in Japan from the 1982 Claremont and Miller 4-book series.  I think this is good use of Twitter’s Vine, in that 6-seconds is just long enough.

Finding Podcasts?

Podcast No. 11 Recording

I find the Apple Podcast app and iTunes clunky and ponderous.  If you are looking for curated podcasts, try out the AV Club’s Podmass (reviews) and Podmass Central (listings).

Unusual Christmas Movies

Machine Gun Ho Ho Ho

So, if you ask people for their favorite Christmas movies, almost all of them would say White Christmas, Elf, Christmas Vacation, or A Christmas Story [previously].

Here’s a list of movies from IMDB which mention Christmas in the film’s descriptions, ranked by the number of votes the movie received from the IMDB community.

Films you might not have considered include the Godfather, 1941, Gremlins, Lethal Weapon, and both the first Rocky and Rambo!

The results might surprise you.
