I’m still not sure if I’m going to watch this or not. Since I only read it for the first time last year, I’m curious to see how they adapt it, yet I’m not, like, emotionally tied to it. If they change a whole bunch of stuff, my little nostalgic geek heart won’t be broken. And the trailer . . . it’s just not really doing all that much for me. That doesn’t mean it’ll be bad, of course, just that I’ve watched it a couple of times now and have been like, “Meh.” Also, there’s the ongoing, Do I want to in any way financially support Orson Scott Card debate. I usually do my best to separate an artist’s creative work from their personal views, but I’ll admit, with Mr. Card it seems a little tricky.
Violet & Daisy
I . . . am not quite sure what to make of this trailer yet. It starts, and I’m like, okay, Rory Gilmore and Hanna are assassins who are hired to kill Tony Soprano, neat, but then . . . the tone of the trailer switches, and I’m just not sure where the film’s going at all. But I’m intrigued. The visuals in this movie looks gorgeous, and as a bonus, Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Danny Trejo! I could try this one out.
I’m probably one of the only people on the planet who wasn’t blown away by Children of Men, but this trailer for Alfonso Cuaron’s new movie . . . holy shitballs, it looks intense. It also looks like material for a shorter film, so I’m curious to see how this will play out over the course of two hours. I’m not sure it’s the kind of movie I run to theaters to see, but I’m interested, regardless. (And I’m kind of hopeful for Sandra Bullock. I like her. I wish she was in more stuff I actually cared about.)
Girl Most Likely
I’d like to say I’m interested in this — I tend to be drawn to these dysfunctional family, mental breakdown comedies — but I just didn’t really connect to this trailer at all. I’m not quite sure why. All the jokes just felt . . . old. Although on the upside, Darren Criss actually looks attractive to me, and — back during the days I actually used to watch Glee — I never understood why everyone was so obsessed with him. But that’s really not enough for me to watch this movie.
And finally . . . The World’s End
I couldn’t find a trailer I could steal, so I link you here to one of 2013’s many apocalyptic comedies. Although this one is done by Edgar Wright and stars Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan, and Rosamund Pike, so, you know. It’s probably worth watching.
