Movie Website Updates for June 24 - June 30, 2007

June 30th, 2007

One of the slowest weeks I can remember for this list, but at least we have a top-notch site to give the Weekly Website Award to: Ratatouille - Official Site.

August Rush - Official Site
Just the trailer so far, but it sells the movie well. I'd like to point out that there's a film called Halloween coming out in August and a film called August Rush coming out I October. Not sure what that means, but I'm sure it's a sign.

The Bourne Ultimatum - Official Site
New trailer and I'm liking it.

Dr. Bronner's Magic Soapbox - Official Site
A lot of information, but it seems rather scattered. Much like its subject.

Evening - Official Site
Basic site with nothing that really makes it stand out.

Hairspray - Official Site
You can download digital autographs, which is like getting a real autograph without meeting the celebrity. Of course, I also thought meeting the celebrity was the point of getting an autograph, but maybe I'm wrong. At least when you're getting it, you can listen to a better song clip in the background.

Hitman - Official Site
Just the teaser trailer, which didn't sell me on the movie. I need at least one line of dialogue for that to happen.

Hot Rod - Official Site
You can now pick up T-shirts from the site.

The Hunting Party - Official Site
Absolutely no information. On a side note, I liked the old name better. It made the film stand out.

I Know Who Killed Me - Official Site
The site is no longer hidden behind a age verification program, but besides the basics there's nothing here to make it stand out.

Live Free or Die Hard - Official Site
All the usual features are here, with a couple games as extras. However, I was expecting more. There's not enough here in terms of style to make the site pop.

Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium - Official Site
Just the trailer, which left me on a wait and see level.

No Country for Old Men - Official Site
The trailer was added this week, and it was definitely effective. My interest in the movie jumped up, a lot.

Ratatouille - Official Site
One of those sites that that is manages to be excellent and disappointing at the same time. There is a huge amount of information on this site, mostly in the form of videos. 2 trailers, 3 TV spots, 3 clips, and 11 podcasts, It could actually take more time watching all of these clips then it would to watch the movie. There are also plenty of games and things to find hidden in the background of the site. However, the site still was missing something. Perhaps I was expecting there to be more animation, perhaps some audio clips. Completely checking out the site from top to bottom, I am amazed at how big it is and will admit my disappointment is only due to unreasonable expectations. It is an excellent site and deserves to win the culinary Weekly Website Award.

The Simpsons Movie - Official Site
Moe's Tavern was added to the site. And the games finally keeping score.

Stardust - Official Site
The Starry Sky section was added. Here you cast post and read messages.

Superbad - Official Site
The soundboard was added to the site.

The Transformers - Official Site
The game section was added to the site, however, it was just an ad for the game and not a game you can play. Disappointing.

Vitus - Official Site
Just the basics with a section for the soundtrack.

Who's Your Caddy - Official Site
Just the synopsis and the trailer, which was painfully bad. If you are trying to use Andy Milonakis to sell your movie, you've got serious problems.
