Hello everyone, and welcome to 111 Archer Avenue. What started as a film review blog has become my online judgment forum. I will review the occasional movie or DVD, post an interesting trailer, critique a newly-read book, talk about sports, and share my thoughts and opinions on random issues. You can also follow me on Twitter (@OlieCoen) or check out my work on DVDTalk.com. Thank you and enjoy!

Movie Trailer - The Colony

Director: Jeff Renfroe
Starring: Laurence Fishburne, Bill Paxton
Release: April 12th, 2013

Oh, you almost got me.  I love post-apocalyptic movies, and I'm a sucker for the "I heard the stories about when the Earth was warm" lines.  But you may have gone one step too far, and you may have made a fatal mistake by casting Bill Paxton.  He has only been believable one time and that was in Aliens as a meat head with a giant machine gun.  No, I don't think I'm gonna let myself be tricked into seeing this one, but it was a close call.

    1. ...when it comes out on Netflix Instant we can watch it together.

    2. I was good with the trailer until I heard "are they gone"?

    3. I must kinda want to see this, cause I'd watch it with you, Al, if we ever had the chance to have a Guy's Movie viewing.
