Where does one begin in the critique of Peter Jackson's unnecessarily long "The Hobbit" trilogy? Well, there are many paths to take but as the folks over at ScreenJunkies point out in their latest installment of the Honest Trailers series, "Lord Of The Rings" was based on three books, running roughly 1200 pages long while "The Hobbit" novella is only about 300 pages, and yet both have been turned into epic trilogies. Guess which one feels bloated?

Nicolas Cage Tokarev
We're not sure what language "Tokarev" comes from, but we can only guess that translated into English it means, "collecting a pay check." Boasting low budgets and a pretty wheezy storyline, it's a reminder that for every decent movie Nicolas Cage does—like David Gordon Green's upcoming "Joe"—he's got about five more of these bargain bin efforts in the can.

Big Bad Wolves
Original story 12/09: While Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado's revenge thriller "Big Bad Wolves" took home awards from Sitges and won five trophies from the Ophirs, Israel's version of the Oscars, those honors likely don't quite beat the feeling one gets when someone like Quentin Tarantino shouts out praise for your film. And that's just what the filmmaker did earlier this year when he hit the Busan International Film Festival said about "Big Bad Wolves": "Not only is this the best film in Busan, this is the best film of the year."

Godzilla
If we were to hazard a guess based on the myriad viral images Legendary Pictures has released of their "Godzilla" reboot/redo/do-over, we'd say sinkholes—and ones some world governments believe should be secret—factor in quite heavily in the plot. Or at least the mechanics of what gets the story engine moving. Following the leak of Comic-Con footage in October that made some impressive waves, the official trailer for "Godzilla" is here. Run for cover.

Jupiter Ascending
No matter where you stand on last year's "Cloud Atlas," it's undeniable that it had the stamp of Lana and Andy Wachowski. An amalgam of fantasy, sci-fi and Big Ideas, those have largely been the hallmarks of the directors and they are continuing in that tradition with "Jupiter Ascending," which is dropping the curtain on its veil of secrecy with the first trailer today.

Bad Words
Taking the leap from actor to director can be a tricky feat, not always easily landed (check out our recent feature), but for his first time at bat, Jason Bateman stayed right in his wheelhouse, going the comedic route with "Bad Words." But just how filthy, and foul-mouthed it is might surprised you.

Here is a rather shocking development that will truly upend the entire world as you know it: Paz De La Huerta is taking off her clothes in a movie. Of course, if you already live on planet Earth, you already know the former "Boardwalk Empire" actress has no problem strutting around in next to nothing or sometimes entirely nothing, and she certainly flaunts what she's got in "Nurse 3D."

With Warner Bros. bulking up "Batman Vs. Superman" with Wonder Woman, the Marvel-verse continuing to expand like so many waistlines at an all you can eat buffet, it's time for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" to level up in the superhero arms race.

As Quentin Tarantino has proven, exploitation or genre tropes are ripe for reworking into something new, fresh and subversive. And that's just what director Josh C. Waller has aimed to do with "Raze," which takes the women-in-prison backdrop that provided so much material for sleazy '70s flicks and turns it into something very, very bloody.
