Whiplash: first trailer starring Miles Teller

Most people know Miles Teller for his work in knock-about comedies like That Awkward Moment, but you’re about to see a new, dramatic side to him in this first trailer for Whiplash. Generic name aside, the film is actually an intriguing and original tale of a drum prodigy (Teller) who is taught by a savagely ambitious band leader (J. K. Simmons) and risks his personal relationships and his sanity on becoming a jazz legend. There’s no U

Hot Tub Time Machine 2: first red band trailer starring Adam Scott

The first Hot Tub Time Machine was a very silly, very solid comedy movie that managed to avoid mediocrity thanks to a combination of its preposterous premise and likeable cast. It’s getting a sequel, and the first red band trailer has just arrived. Sure, John Cusack hasn’t come back for more. But Adam Scott from Parks and Rec has replaced him, so y’know, swings and roundabouts. As you’d imagine this trailer is NSFW because

Overanalysing Pop Song Lyrics: Genie in a Bottle by Christina Aguilera

Joe West looks at what is, on a lyrical level at least, one of the best pop songs of all time. So far in this series I’ve taken songs that I quite like and shown that they lyrics are, if not actively nonsensical, very easy to satirise. But with Genie in a Bottle, I might have met my m
