It’s Friday. We post movie trailers on Friday. Here are the movie trailers:
Am I the only one who isn’t falling for the hype about this movie? Like, I hope this movie is SPECTACULAR, and with Steven Spielberg and Daniel Day Lewis it very well might be, and I might even see it in the theater and that might even happen on opening weekend, and this trailer looks just like a Hollywood big budget Spielberg movie about Lincoln should look, but I still also don’t actually “care.” It just seems like there’s some kind of marketing push that is like “American Teens Can’t Get Enough Abraham Lincoln!” and this dude ain’t buyin’ it. The proof in the pudding is in the Lincoln. But I hope the pudding is delicious! I’m not saying I won’t eat that pudding!
Aaron Paul! From the hit show Breaking Bad! And other talented people! This is like OUR generation’s Leaving Las Vegas. I’m sure this movie is going to be pretty good, but also if it is about (and it is definitely about) a couple who only really works when they are drinking together and who fall apart when one of them gets sober, some of us find it hard enough to hold onto any belief that love is possible as it is. I’m just saying that Aaron Paul aside this is still in the Maybe column.
Yup. Good. Yes.
Everybody Has a Plan
This looks GREAT! Too bad it isn’t in ENGLISH. Oh well, now I guess no one in the whole world will see it, since no one in the whole world will understand what anyone’s saying. Just kidding, who needs to know the words when you can see evil Viggo Mortensen vs. evil Viggo Mortensen in El Bone Del Winter.
A Late Quartet
It is a testament to how much I enjoy the work of Philip Seymour-Hoffman, Christopher Walken, and Catherine Keener that I didn’t just throw my computer off the roof during this boring ass trailer.
Stand Up Guys
This movie actually looks totally fine. Two great actors. A little bit of Scent of a Woman, a little bit of Grumpy Old Men, a little mobster stuff. His friend has to kill him? That’s good! But I will never be able to see anything that has to do with this movie including the actual movie itself without thinking about this.
