Hey, it’s me! Kelly! Writing about trailers! Who would’ve ever thought! What we have for you today are a few trailers that look mostly just fine, and also a Madea trailer. Hahah. ARE YOU PSYCHED FOR THEM? I don’t mean to give you the hard sell on them, but do believe me when I say that they ARE mostly fine! One of them has Mark Duplass in it, because Mark Duplass is in a trailer every week these days, and no one is complaining. Have you guys seen The Puffy Chair? It’s probably still on Netflix Instant. You should see it! It’s good! Let’s watch the trailers now!
Your Sister’s Sister
This is definitely a movie that you’re suppose to say “white people problems” about. And it is for sure an incredible “white people problems” movie. But, if I can be honest with you for a second, do you know what I think the biggest “white people problem” is? How so many movies are about “white people problems.” “I’m white and sooooo many movies are about people exactly like me. It’s THE WORST!” That’s what I hear whenever I see a blogger write “white people problems.” So can we MOVE ON FROM IT AND TALK ABOUT THE TRAILER? It looks fine. I love Mark Duplass and will probably see everything he’s ever in or writes, even if it is bad, which it most of the time is. So I will probably see this, even though I totally get everything that it’s about already and definitely do not need to see it.
“Magic Neck.” – Gabe Delahaye (Also, hi Hank’s wife!)
So this is like Stranger Than Fiction except from the other point of view and also a love story. That’s ok! I’m sure it’s going to be an ok thing to watch, if you like the idea of it. Like an indie Twilight Zone episode. And it’s from the people who brought you Little Miss Sunshine. Sooooo. Oh, also it has the boyfriend from the last season of Six Feet Under, and that guy is great. I don’t think I’m ever going to see it, but maybe you will! Paul Dano and Zoe Kazan are dating in real life, right? Those guys!
Madea’s Witness Protection
This movie is not really for me, I don’t think, but also I think it’s a victim of just having a terrible trailer. So maybe it is for me and I just can’t see it yet. Those slide-y descriptive panels make it look like a low-budget Netflix movie, and the cheap-o nondescript music doesn’t help either. (I’m sure the music is something, it has lyrics, but it definitely SOUNDS like nothing.) (Like they wanted a Tom Petty song and hired someone’s nephew’s band to record something that sounded like it.) (I hope it’s not a real Tom Petty song!) So, who knows. Maybe this will be good! But the trailer is terrible!
