Movie Trailer – The Institute

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: James Franco

Starring: James Franco, Eric Roberts, Tim Blake Nelson

Release: March 3rd, 2017

When Eric Roberts is the lead-in to your film, you know you’ve made a big mistake.  James Franco does have talent, I think we can all agree on that, but he mostly does either terribly stupid movies or just plain terrible movies, rarely sliding into a part that will actually show off his skills.  This movie looks awful, and Franco just pumps out way too many of these to be taken seriously.

Movie Trailer – Sandy Wexler

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Steven Brill

Starring: Adam Sandler, Jennifer Hudson, Rob Schneider

Release: April 14th, 2017

Why did someone make this movie, that’s my only question.  Like, why and how did someone think this was a good plot for a film?  I understand that Adam Sandler is kind of an idiot; a rich idiot, but an idiot all the same.  But how did even he and/or his team think that this story was something that needed to be told, even for a couple cheap laughs.  You can be funny in other ways, or at least other people can, and maybe Sandler should branch out.  Or maybe he should just stop being a moron and leave us all alone.

Movie Trailer – Brain on Fire

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Gerard Barrett

Starring: Chloë Grace Moretz, Thomas Mann, Tyler Perry

Release: 2017

This might be the worst movie ever made.  Partly because, I mean, it’s, well, just watch the trailer.  And partly because it looks Hallmark quality or less but is being hyped as an actual film.  It isn’t, it’s a flaming heap, please don’t watch it.  Moretz is so, so bad, not just here, but in everything, and hopefully this movie will be the Jump the Shark moment that reveals that fact to more people, because I just can’t.

Movie Trailer – Everything, Everything

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Stella Meghie

Starring: Amandla Stenberg, Nick Robinson

Release: May 19th, 2017

What terrible book is this movie based on?  It looks like something some girl wrote in high school for a class project, not an actual novel that actual adults would read.  As far as the film goes, I don’t see how anyone other than 14-year-old girls who like to write poetry about loneliness could possibly enjoy it.  I pass, with vigor.

Movie Trailer – The Bad Batch

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Ana Lily Amirpour

Starring: Suki Waterhouse, Jason Momoa, Keanu Reeves

Release: June 23rd, 2017

What the who now?  This movie looks weird.  A little Neon Demon weird, a little Mad Max weird, a little Automata weird, a little Planet Terror weird, but definitely weird, and probably a big ripoff.  And did you see the rest of the cast?  Giovanni Ribisi, Jim Carrey, Diego Luna; are they all cannibals in the desert too?  I almost want to see this to see just how strange it gets.  But I also think I better not.

Movie Trailer – The Ottoman Lieutenant

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Joseph Ruben

Starring: Hera Hilmar, Michiel Huisman, Josh Hartnett

Release: March 10th, 2017

It’s not that this movie looks terrible, it’s that it looks terribly cast, and is probably a complete ripoff of any other movie that even mentions Turks.  It looks to be done with as much touch as a saber for a splinter, as if no one here could actually bring history to life, so they just pretended in the desert.  Josh Hartnett?  Really?  What’s that guy been doing?  And what’s the director of such mega-hits as Gorp, The Good Son, and The Forgotten doing coming out of semi-retirement for this film?  Bad choice.

Movie Trailer – Unlocked

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Michael Apted

Starring: Noomi Rapace, Orlando Bloom, John Malkovich

Release: May 5th, 2017

There are way too many stars in this film, which is the first red flag: Rapace, Bloom, Malkovich, Michael Douglas, Toni Collette.  The next is the kung fu action, which is just plain stupid.  This movie looks like a Jason Bourne wannabe without the talent or dedication to pull it off.  Not that I’m a fan of that franchise, but at least they did a few things right, won audiences over, even if the product wasn’t that great once you started inspecting it.  This you can tell is bad from one whiff.

Movie Trailer – Wish Upon

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: John R. Leonetti

Starring: Joey King, Ryan Phillippe, Ki Hong Lee

Release: June 30th, 2017

I consider myself the person who discovered Joey King (Crazy Stupid Love, Family Weekend, Wish I Was Here).  I have no way to justify that, but I did watch Family Weekend and literally no one else did, so that has to count for something.  But seriously, I saw this girl coming a mile a way, years ago, and although this movie looks silly, she’s going to be a big star, this is just a step up for a career that it going to be killer.

Movie Trailer – The Beguiled

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Sofia Coppola

Starring: Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning

Release: June 30th, 2017

I’ve actually never enjoyed Sofia Coppola, have never seen the magic in anything she made.  She’s far too affected, and it bothers me, especially when Kirsten Dunst sticks her untalented head in the picture.  This is a remake though, of a Clint Eastwood film from 1971, so maybe there’s enough of a base that she can add some style to and not completely screw up.

Movie Trailer – It Comes at Night

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Trey Edward Shults

Starring: Joel Edgerton, Riley Keough, Christopher Abbott

Release: August 25th, 2017

Jesus creepy Christ.  What is going on here?!  And why am I scared, even though there’s nothing apparent to be scared of?  That’s a strong horror trailer, one that can scare you without giving up too much, one that can impress with you quality without coming across as cheesy & recycled.  I love Joel Edgerton, I’d watch him in almost anything, and I can’t wait to see him in this frightening film.
