Despite a year of choppy, dangerous seas at the box office--resulting in both shipwreck (Noah) and disappointment (Spider-man 2)--Hollywood is furiously chumming the waters at the local multiplex, releasing 10 or more movies a week, hoping desperately to create a feeding frenzy among critics and moviegoers.

In this inaugural edition of Trolling for Oscars, the Misfits take a nibble at Whiplash, Gone Girl, and Birdman.

With the announcement of the Tetris movie now in development, the Misfits take a look back at episode number one and once again ask:  "Hollywood.  Out of ideas, or moving in a direction so bold, so unexpected that we can only tag along and wonder at Tinseltown's peculiar kind of genius?"  Also:  Misfit movie mascot ideas for sports teams.

6 'n 90!  Da Man reviews six films in ninety seconds.


22 Jump Street.  It’s actually more of a comedy about sequels than it is a sequel to a comedy.


Jersey Boys.  If Da Man had his way, the title of this film would be Jersey Boy, or maybe The One Season, or possibly just Frankie Valli.


How to Train Your Dragon 2 
Dragons may be creations of fantasy, but the reality is that this sequel holds its own against the original.  Hiccup, Toothless, and the gang are back together, and this is a flight of fantasy you'll want to take.


Introducing Dorothea Brookes AKA Dodo, The Misfit Mascot.

X-Men: Days of Future Past. If you’ve been looking forward to seeing the Sentinels on the big screen—you might have to keep on looking.  Like every other X-Men movie, this one devolves into a predictable showdown with Magneto.


Maleficent. Forget about fantasy violence and frightening images, why doesn’t the MPAA warn audiences about gratuitous pixie action?


Edge of Tomorrow.  In his latest sci-fi epic, Tom Crusie has the ability to reset time, but since audiences seem to assume this film is Oblivion 2, it’s unlikely Edge of Tomorrow will be a career reset for Cruise.

A Million Ways to Die in the West
. Unfortunately for Seth McFarland, there are almost as many ways to die at the box office. His latest film is one of them.


In French, it means a beautiful woman. But what about the film…about a beautiful mulatto woman born into an aristocratic world that can never fully accept her? Is Belle “bon” or simply “pas si bon”?


.  The tag line for the 1998 Godzilla was “Size matters.” Fortunately, the tag line for the latest reimagining of Godzilla could be “Talent matters.”
