Movie Trailer – Isle of Dogs

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Wes Anderson

Starring: Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Bryan Cranston

Release: March 23rd, 2018

It just struck me that ‘Wes Anderson’ is an ill-fitting name for a director like Wes Anderson.  We take it for granted because, well, it’s his name, but it’s the opposite of quirky and it just doesn’t go.  Anyway, what more can I say about Anderson as a director: he’s my fav.  Fantastic Mr. Fox is fun, but it isn’t spectacular, and I wonder if Isle or Dogs is going to follow that path or if it will top it.  I love this trailer, I’m fascinated to watch this film, I just hope the story was made with us in mind and not done simply to be self-gratifying.

Movie Trailer – All I See is You

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Marc Forster

Starring: Blake Lively, Jason Clarke

Release: October 27th, 2017

It’s like they watched The Ticket, heard the criticism, and decided to make the same movie, but to alleviated some of the boredom they’d make it into a thriller.  And not just a little thriller, but a hyper-thriller with adultery and mystery and murder and everything we don’t really need.  Forster is a good director, Clarke is a good actor, but putting Lively in the spotlight is a bad idea, and so probably is this film.

Movie Trailer – November Criminals

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Sacha Gervasi

Starring: Ansel Elgort, Chloe Grace Moretz

Release: November 7th, 2017

I’m tired of all these YA novels making their way on screens, dragging themselves along although they were dead before they even started.  I hate to chop down a genre, but these books aren’t actually good, they’re just catchy, and so we shouldn’t be surprised when their film versions can’t cut it.  And really, high schoolers?  Elgort is 23, CGM is 20; they need to grow up and find adult roles if they think that they’re talented enough to earn them.

Movie Trailer – Tomb Raider

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Roar Uthaug

Starring: Alicia Vikander, Daniel Wu, Walton Goggins

Release: March 16th, 2018

Uthaug’s last movie was The Wave; he’s more than capable of making this story sing.  Vikander’s last movie is irrelevant; she’s amazing in every single thing she touches.  I can’t think of a better Lara Croft, and I think they’ll do the game justice.  My only fear is that they go a Tarzan route, and that film sucked, so they are better served swerving away from it by miles.

Movie Trailer – Tom of Finland

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Dome Karukoski

Starring: Pekka Strang, Lauri Tilkanen

Release: October 13th, 2017

I bet this movie is important to a lot of people, will make a big impact for those who have felt this persecution first-hand, even in our supposedly modern and forward-thinking world, but I just don’t know who this guy is and his fame means nothing to me.  I could learn, perhaps I will, but I can’t say that I’m excited to see this film.

Movie Trailer – The Commuter

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Jaume Collet-Serra

Starring: Liam Neeson, Vera Farmiga

Release: January 12th, 2017

This movie is literally Non-Stop but on a train.  Literally.  Like, nothing else different.  And I actually liked that film, accepted it for what it was, but I don’t necessarily want to watch it again, just in a different location.

Movie Trailer – All the Money in the World

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Ridley Scott

Starring: Michelle Williams, Mark Wahlberg, Kevin Spacey

Release: December 8th, 2017

Forgive me if I’m a bit skeptical about this movie.  I love Williams, Wahlberg, Spaacey, but I have my doubts that they’ll combine in just the right way to convince us to care about the kidnapping of a billionaire’s grandson 40 years ago.

Movie Trailer – Red Sparrow

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Francis Lawrence

Starring: Jennifer Lawrence, Joel Edgerton

Release: March 2nd, 2018

Whoa.  JLaw is back with a vengeance, and she just might fit this role to perfection.  Joel Edgerton too, he’s amazing every time he hits the screen, and I can only hope that he’ll be a villain, because holy cow he’s good.  And did you see the rest of the cast: Matthias Schoenaerts, Jeremy Irons, Ciaran Hinds, Charlotte Rampling.  I’m intrigued by the plot, ready for a well-made thriller, and am excited to see this movie.

Movie Trailer – Downsizing #2

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Alexander Payne

Starring: Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz, Jason Sudeikis

Release: December 22nd, 2017

There is Oscar talk surrounding this movie, so much so that some people are putting it as the #2 contender for Best Picture.  Obviously that’s premature, the movie won’t even be released until Christmas, but the buzz is good and that’s something.  With the teaser, we didn’t get much, but if the intention was to create curiosity, it worked, and now that we have a full trailer, I’m even more excited.  Also, Payne directed Sideways and Nebraska, which are two excellent films, in my book, so I’m on board.

Movie Trailer – The Disaster Artist #2

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: James Franco

Starring: James Franco, Seth Rogen, Dave Franco

Release: December 8th, 2017

I have never seen The Room, but I think I need to.  And then I need to see Disaster Artist because I think it might be magic.
