Movie Trailer – Stuber

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Michael Dowse

Starring: Kumail Nanjiani, Dave Bautista, Natalie Morales

Release: July 12th, 2019

This is so easy I know I shouldn’t use it but I just have to; Stu-BER looks stu-PID.  And I like Kumail, just not …like …this.  My god.

Movie Trailer – The Corrupted

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Ron Scalpello

Starring: Sam Claflin, Timothy Spall, High Bonneville

Release: May 3rd, 2019

This looks like a British version of the crap we’ve seen here in the States far too often, these thrilling, crime-ridden, gritty, guns a’blazing dramas that don’t amount to much.  I like these actors, they might make it worth our time, and I’m a sucker for English accents, I think they make everything just a little bit better.  But I’m still probably gonna pass.

Movie Trailer – Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: J.J. Abrams

Starring: Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, John Boyega

Release: December 20th, 2019

J.J. returns to the director’s chair, but what may be more important is that he returns to write the screenplay as well.  Rian Johnson will do the next Star Wars trilogy series, but we needed a break from his take on the universe, The Last Jedi was just too up & down.  I was a fan, I had fun, but there were GLARING mistakes that anyone should have been able to see, so calling that film the best of the franchise is completely ridiculous.  The Force Awakens was better, so here’s hoping we’re returning to more that mood.  I’m excited, as always, to see another piece of this puzzle, and I don’t care if I get all the answers I want, I just want to enjoy, and I really think I will.

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.
