    Going to go with critical and Valentina on this one. It's time to get rotated out and a new reviewer. Previews are simple marketing ploys to get a viewer to informed on a movie. If you, Jeff, seriously start critiquing the trailers, than obviously you are jaded to the industry. A real critic would never waste their readers' time with an article like this. A real critic would have informed people of the trailers and left personal views out of it. It's Jeff Vice, so I shouldn't expect that.

    Desert News take a note. This isn't how journalism or film critiquing is done. Please don't continue to waste valuable retail space in your paper on a pompous individual.

    It's a shame some people won't like the styalized nature of The Clone Wars, it's a sort of American-Anime vibe. I like it a lot, personally, and look forward to seeing it.

    All film critics need to be recycled after 2 years, assigned a new task, then rotated back. After viewing several movies a film critic becomes to desensitized and can't see the beauty in a simple movie any more.

    Looks like Jeff needs to be rotated.

    Please, give me a break previews are just that. Previews. Previews are to let a person know what is coming out and for them to decide if it appeals to them. What appeals to Jeff and to you are two different things.

    The Dark Knight will be a monster hit only because Ledger died before it opened. Everyone's curiosity will drive them to see that movie. What about the one he was making when he died? What will become of that?

    LOL. Are you serious with that "Hellboy II looked eerily similar to Guillermo Del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth" comment.

    ...perhaps because he directed BOTH of them? Do some basic research, please.

    More ritual prequel bashing. In spite of the fact that Jeff gave them all positive reviews. People need to move past it. The prequels were better than a lot of the stuff that's come out lately.

    The trailers for the Dark Knight have all been amazing! I am way pumped to see it at midnight on opening night! 11 days!
