Similar to the Steadicams used in Hollywood, the iSteady Shot uses a two-axis gimbal to reduce camera shake, resulting in ultra-smooth iPhone and Nano movies; demo movie here.
Ambiguous Endings resolves movies and TV shows that may be best left as cliffhangers; No Country for Old Men, The Wrestler, and The Sopranos end on no uncertain terms.
Its special effects are dated, but few can deny Logan’s Run’s impact on sci-fi; the Blu-ray version is a 1080p transfer with Dolby TrueHD and includes vintage trailers and a commentary track.
Based on the comic books, this first teaser for Kick-Ass easily drop-kicks its way into our geeky hearts; it’s about teenagers who decide to become real-life superheroes (sans powers).
Say what you will about Hollywood action flicks, but this teaser for Clash of the Titans looks god-awesome: Kratos would do well to take some pointers from Perseus. Thanks, everyone!
Movie Titles in Movies is a rapid-fire montage of movie titles spoken in scenes; if you’ve ever wanted to break the fourth wall and dance with meta wolves, this is as good as it gets.
This second trailer for Sherlock Holmes makes the first look quite elementary; there’s much more plot exposition, more action, and more witty repartee courtesy of Holmes and Watson.
While we still like the US trailer, this UK trailer for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time has much more of a grand, epic feel a-la-Lord of the Rings, with narration by the princess herself.
Despicable Me’s second trailer reveals not one but two villains in a Spy vs. Spy-esque game of one-upmanship; Steve Carrell voices Gru while Jason Segel plays his arch nemesis, Vector.
Angelina Jolie plays the lead in a role originally meant for Tom Cruise in Salt, and all we can say is thank God: the thriller stars Jolie as a CIA operative accused of being a sleeper agent.

Yo, Adrian x 6: the champ comes to Blu-ray with Rocky: The Undisputed Collection; the seven disc set includes Rocky 1-5 + Balboa and a bonus disc packed with trailers and featurettes.
We’re always wary of game-to-movies, but we like Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time’s first trailer; there are wisps of PotC here, appropriate as it’s a Bruckheimer & Disney production.
Featuring music from and to be released with Angels & Airwaves’ third album, Love is a full-length, visually stunning sci-fi film about a man trapped on the International Space Station.
xkcd untangles convoluted Hollywood plotlines into organized Movie Narrative Charts; LotR, Jurassic Park, and Star Wars all become semi-coherent, but Primer still remains indecipherable.
