Movie Trailer – Live Cargo

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Logan Sandler

Starring: Dree Hemingway, Lakeith Stanfield, Sam Dillon

Release: March 31st, 2017

Putting the cool black & white look aside, and ignoring the few beautiful scenes of water, I don’t believe there’s enough here to hook me into seeing this film.  It seems visually appealing, but perhaps a bit of a Terrence Malick copy-cat, and probably a typical thriller at its core.  Basically, I don’t think that the actual film will live up to an intriguing trailer.

Movie Trailer – The Outcasts

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Peter Hutchings

Starring: Victoria Justice, Eden Sher, Peyton List

Release: April 14th, 2017

There’s something to be said for the high school comedy genre, and we’ll always appreciate it on some level.  But this film looks to only exploit the style, not add anything to it.  These are just stereotypes, they aren’t funny, and they won’t make an enjoyable movie.

Movie Trailer – Graduation

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Cristian Mungiu

Starring: Adrien Titieni, Maria-Victoria Dragus

Release: April 7th, 2017

This film should be considered an early front-runner for Best Foreign Film, or at least I hope it turns out to be that good, because I think it definitely has the potential.  A Romanian drama with a ton of power packed into a two-hour heavy-weight bout, even the trailer was enough get me worked up and invested in this story.  I’m hopeful for something unique and impressively simple.

Movie Trailer – Megan Leavey

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Gabriela Cowperthwaite

Starring: Kate Mara, Common, Edie Falco

Release: June 9th, 2017

From the director whose only other film is Blackfish, comes a true story about a soldier and her dog?  I’d be skeptical with just that information, and without watching the cheesy trailer that made it all much worse.  On top of that, Kate Mara is only OK, while Common is one of the worst actors I have ever seen on screen.  How he continues to get roles I have no idea, but it needs to stop.  This film has too many questionable pieces stacked on top of one another; it is going to come crashed down.

Movie Trailer – Voice from the Stone

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Eric D. Howell

Starring: Emilia Clarke, Marton Csokas, Edward Dring

Release: April 28th, 2017

A Gothic horror flick, and something we’ve seen a hundred times.  The creepy kid, the old house, the possible ghost, the nanny; there would have to be something extra special to make anyone go see this film, and I don’t think that exists here.

Movie Trailer – The Most Hated Woman in America

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Tommy O’Haver

Starring: Melissa Leo, Josh Lucas, Adam Scott

Release: March 24th, 2017

Again, a typical Netflix crime/comedy, or at least that’s the way this company has been going recently.  And again, I like what they’re doing, but perhaps the direction they’re pointed in more than the exact place they currently are.  This movie just looks normal, unexciting, and fairly throw-away, like it won’t make any sort of impact at all.  And the actors; they’re OK, but nothing to write home about.

Movie Trailer – Here Alone

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Rod Blackhurst

Starring: Lucy Walters, Adam David Thompson, Gina Piersanti

Release: March 31st, 2017

That’s the thing about these zombie movies that’s so frightening, apart from the horror, violence, and monsters jumping out at you; the isolation.  The loneliness, the desperation, the sense of death just waiting for you to make a mistake.  That terrifies me more than the zombies, the idea that you’re just biding time until the inevitable conclusion.  Which is life I guess, which is why it’s scary, which is why I want to watch this movie and why I, at the same time, don’t.

Movie Trailer – Baby Driver

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Edgar Wright

Starring: Ansel Elgort, Lily James, Jamie Foxx

Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Eiza Gonzalez, Jon Bernthal

Release: August 11th, 2017

I know I’m a critic and so I’m supposed to, but I didn’t really like Drive.  I’d be willing to give it a second chance because I feel like I was expecting something else and so missed the vibe that supposedly made it good, but I just didn’t enjoy watching it.  Baby Driver, on the other hand, I think I could love.  It looks like your typical heist movie with a lot of name actors thrown in just because, but I have the strange feeling that it’ll be worth much more than that.

Movie Trailer – Coco

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Lee Unkrich

Starring: Anthony Gonzalez, Benjamin Bratt, Gael Garcia Bernal

Release: November 22nd, 2017

I want to be excited about this movie since I love Disney/Pixar, but I can’t help thinking that it looks like a bit of a ripoff.  If you combine The Book of Life and Kubo, you get this, and I know it’s just a short tease, but I didn’t see much original content.  Is the addition of a dog supposed to make it unique?  I guess I’ll wait for a longer trailer, but I’m concerned.

Movie Trailer – The Commune

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Thomas Vinterberg

Starring: Trine Dyrholm, Ulrich Thomsen, Julie Agnete Vang

Release: May 19th, 2017

Wow, I’m fascinated by this movie.  I think I like Danish films, though my experience is definitely limited.  I don’t know, there’s just a mood and an energy from the few Danish dramas I have seen that I really appreciate, an angst that I want to understand.  As far as this film goes, I’m curious about the commune, the story, the relationships, and how it’ll all work out.  I’m in.
