Movie Trailer – Unicorn Store

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Brie Larson

Starring: Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson

Release: April 5th, 2019

Brie Larson makes her directorial debut, and I couldn’t be more underwhelmed.  Unicorn Store looks mostly dumb, disjointed at the very least, and not something that can be taken seriously.  The cast is …interesting: Larson, Jackson, Bradley Whitford, Joan Cusack, Martha MacIsaac, Karan Soni.  Not the best actors, and not the best idea or execution either, by the look of things.  I hate to hate on Brie; I’m no angry fan boy claiming ownership of genres that don’t belong to me.  I just don’t think she’s a great talent, I think she’s fine; this movie is our chance to see if she’s any better as a director, and I have my doubts.

Movie Trailer – The Professor and the Madman

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Farhad Safinia

Starring: Mel Gibson, Sean Penn

Release: March, 2019

This looks slightly better than I thought it would, but still, come on, we can’t be expected to take this seriously.  A high-octane drama about making the dictionary?  Starring Gibson & Penn & Alan Partridge?  No thank you.

Movie Trailer – Framing John DeLorean

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Don Argott, Sheena M. Joyce

Starring: Alec Baldwin, Morena Baccarin, Josh Charles

Release: June 7th, 2019

This movie looks …weird.  Part reenactment, part documentary, part drama?  Weird.  And Alec Baldwin’s makeup looks horrendous.

Movie Trailer – The Art of Self-Defense

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Riley Stearns

Starring: Jesse Eisenberg, Alessandro Nivola, Imogen Poots

Release: June 21st, 2019

Jesse Eisenberg isn’t exactly my favorite, but I think the best thing I ever saw him do was The Double, and this odd-ball comedy looks like the closest thing he’s done since, so I’m in.  Also, I really like Imogen Poots, probably because of her name.

Movie Trailer – Good Boys

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Gene Stupnitsky

Starring: Jacob Tremblay, Keith L. Williams, Brady Noon

Release: August 16th, 2019

This is an immediate must-see in my book.  Superbad but younger and wronger?  Where do I sign up?

Movie Trailer – Booksmart

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Olivia Wilde

Starring: Beanie Feldstein, Kaitlyn Dever

Release: May 24th, 2019

I’ve never liked Kaitlyn Dever, I did really like Beanie Feldstein in Lady Bird, so I have a mixed reaction to this casting, and I’m very concerned about Olivia Wilde’s first time directing.  It’s obvious that she took her cue from Greta Gerwig, but decided to go in a Superbad direction, which is cool with me, as long as she can squeeze in some originality as well.  The cast is fun: Jason Sudeikis, Will Forte, Lisa Kudrow.  And I’ve heard good things coming out of festivals, so we’ll just have to give it a legitimate shot and hope the experiment works.

Movie Trailer – Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Quentin Tarantino

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie

Release: July 26th, 2019

I have no clue what the hell is going on in this movie, but I don’t really need to; I’d watch it if they showed us a two-minute clip of an empty set.  Holy moly, let’s go right now.

Movie Trailer – Toy Story 4

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Josh Cooley

Starring: Tom Hanks, Tony Hale, Annie Potts

Release: June 21st, 2019

I honestly don’t think this will be very good.  I’m not trying to be a spoil sport, or pretend that animated movies can’t melt my heart, I simply don’t think the magic is still within this franchise.  I loved the first Toy Story as much as the next guy, but the next two were only OK, and I never got the pull that the third one had on some people.  This fourth installment seems forced and recycled, and I’m just not very excited about it.  I’ll watch it with my family anyway, of course, and I’ll be open to having my mind changed; but I wouldn’t put money on it.  Last note; this director has never directed a movie before, like ever, and that’s concerning.  Carry on.

Movie Trailer – Lucy in the Sky

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Noah Hawley

Starring: Natalie Portman, Jon Hamm, Dan Stevens

Release: 2019

There is a lot going on in this trailer.  Annihilation, First Man, Jackie, Gravity; I see a bit of a lot of movies embedded inside this one, which I don’t think is a bad thing, not if the execution is solid and there are some original ideas.  I like the casting, the feel, the time period, the mood; I think this film has real potential.
