VHS – Official Redband Trailer
Hmmm… not sure about it. Looks like it’s going to be a whole lot of jumpy scare and gore. And personally, I’m not fond of the found-footage type films, for the most part, because they have a tendency to give me motion sickness. It’s not the premise that I don’t like, just the pure motion sickness thing.
The trailer reminds me of “Three Extremes” – a Japanese movie that three different directors directed three different horror “films” in one… and that’s kind of what this looks like. There’s 5 tapes, with 5 different and more terrifying stories. So I’m not sure. I’ll probably watch it at home one night, preferably not alone.
For a Good Time, Call – Official Trailer
Watch the whole trailer. At first it looks kind of boring – but then these two girls start running a phone sex business from their home. YES. And Justin Long is in it. YES. I’ll watch it on Netflix probably. Or go see it if someone else pays for it.
Compliance – Trailer
Ok this trailer pisses me off. Why? It’s an exact episode of Law and Order SVU. EXACT. And probably 100x better than this movie will be. Don’t believe me? Here’s the IMDB page for that episode. It’s called “Authority”. It’s on Netflix instant viewing if you want to go watch it. And I can guarentee you it will be a better episode than this movie will be. Why? Because I don’t even know how you can stretch that topic to a full length movie, unless you get off on watching a poor girl get sexually harrassed repeatedly, and also, because at least in the SVU episode it has a famous person as the bad guy caller. Who is it? Robin Williams. So of course, the second you see him, your brain says “oh, he’s famous he did it”. But still it was a good episode.
But back to the trailer, no, I won’t see it, it’s just dumb.
Alex Cross – Official Trailer
Dang, Matthew Fox has gone all Christian Bale in “The Machinist” on us. And Tyler Perry NOT dressed up like a fat annoying black woman? WHAT?! I’ll see it. Definitely. Mostly for Matthew Fox as a serial killer. I do love me a good serial killer, and he looks like he’s going to play it damn well. I’ll probably see this in the theater.
The Man With the Iron Fists – Red Band Trailer
Before you watch the trailer, let me warn you ahead of time. It says “Quentin Tarantino presents…” so you get all excited thinking he directed it. No, he didn’t, he just produced it. Which is still great – and apparently, after doing some googling, I’ve found out that he is RZA’s “directing mentor”. So yep, that’s right RZA is directing it.
So, about the trailer, IT STILL LOOKS AWESOME. Here it is:
So now watching the trailer, you know what I mean by awesome. Craptastically mind numbingly action packed awesome. Crappy acting from many, great craptastical cheesy lines. My personal favorite is Lucy Liu in the trailer. And then the random guy that screams “ATTACK!!” He kind of looks like the asian stunt double person in “Epic Movie” (if you’ve seen it you’ll know exactly who I’m talking about).
I’ll see this in the trailer. I don’t even care how bad plot wise it’s probably going to be. This is one of those movies you go to just for the fights and sheer “wtf”ness of it. I will be there. Hecks yes.
Hotel Transylvania – Official Trailer
So this is actually the second trailer I’ve seen. Actually I guess it’s the first full length trailer I’ve seen. I was super excited at first, but seeing what the actual plot will be, I’m kind of disapointed. Really, the vampires daughter falls in love with the human? Shocker. I still think it looks cute and the idea of the hotel for “monsters” is great. But man, I’m just slightly less looking forward to it now.
But the contacts part at the end of the trailer is pretty funny…. so yeah, I’ll still see it.
