This is a special edition of my trailer reviews. Rather than new ones, it’s all ones that I am SUPER excited about.
Movie Title: Gangster Squad
I suggest you watch this trailer in full screen, HD. Go do it. Now.
I’ve always said that I love any movie with tommy guns. Doesn’t really matter what it is…. I’ll love it. Especially when there is a scene with with tommy guns, and hot guys standing in the middle of the road just mowing someone down…. fabulous. And this movie seems to have a lot of scenes like that. So I am excited.
I also know this movie is going to be good because I could care less that Ryan Gosling is in it. WHAT?! I know, I know, but hear me out. I think the cast is PHENOMENAL even without him. We have Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, and Nick Nolte to pee our pants over and then you add in Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, and Anthony Mackie? Yes please. I am so excited.
Also – the trailer has a great use of music so I’m thinking the movie will as well.
Movie Title: Looper
So in time travel movies, I figure you can watch them one of two ways – you can either just accept the realm of time travel for what it is – or go nit-picking about how that would never work blah blah blah. I accept each time travel movie for however they want to present it, for the most part. Recently I loved how MIB3 did it, but that’s besides the point.
I like how they took Joseph Gordon-Levitt and altered his face a bit with makeup to make him look more like Bruce Willis – but the fact that we all know it’s Joseph Gordon-Levitt under there kind of ruins it. But I love him, so I’m ok with it. The movie looks great.
Movie Title: Django Unchained
I feel like I’ve talked about this one before and I don’t care. I think I am the most excited about this movie. It looks INCREDIBLE. I love everyone in it – Christoph Waltz, Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, and if you go look at the imdb.com page, apparently even more awesomeness. It just looks great. And it’s Quentin Tarantino… ahhhh.
I love Dicaprio for taking this slightly-out-of-recent-character movie, for what’s got to be less pay than normal, but he looks incredible in it.
Movie Title: The Great Gatsby
Alright, I’ll admit it – I love Leonardo DiCaprio in everything. But this movie looks awesomeeeeeeee. It’s from the same director, Baz Luhrmann, as Australia and Moulin Rouge. Both of which I love. So I love that we are getting a roaring 20s movie with his style. It looks over-stylized, fantastical, and well shot. I think for the movie it will do well. Do I care if it sticks to the book? No, because I honestly don’t remember what happened in the book *that* much (I remember overall, but not details).
Movie Title: Lawless
A group of hot men fighting over moonshine? Yes. Now let me just list the fabulous cast – a nice mix of “older” actors and the new crowd: Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, Guy Pearce, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska, etc. Please tell me how it could not be good?
So clearly, I like man movies. Whatever. All of these look awesome and I’m excited about them.
