No more polls. No more "Trailers" in the side bar. Instead, there is a brand new page in the banner. "Coming Soon to a Theater Near You!" is the place to see new trailers and talk about new releases. Speak up! Post a comment about an upcoming movie, explain why you think all the choices suck, post what you'll be doing this weekend instead of watching a muddier, more jumbled Star Wars: Episode 1!
It has to be said: The Grey is the first great film of 2012. It's also the first horrifically mis-marketed movie of the year. Don't get me wrong, the trailer was great. It totally hooked me and got me incredibly excited to see Liam Neeson: Wolfpuncher. Really, what could be more testosterone-pumping than Liam Neeson taping broken bottles to his fists, ready to beat the bejesus out of a pissed-off wolf? The only problem is, The Grey isn't that movie at all.
