It’s Guillermo del Toro, so it’s going to be great – and it looks great, even though it feels like ‘Cloverfield’ and ‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’ had sex, and this was the baby. With a little bit of weird uncle Iron Man thrown in. But do I care? No. This still looks like it’s going to be great. Oh, and Idris Elba is in the movie. Yes please.
The Lone Ranger
It’s very rare… actually, I don’t think it’s ever happened before…. that my number one problem with the movie is Johny Depp. Usually I’m all over Johnny Depp. But in this case, no. The accent is horrible, the makeup is crappy (we still know it’s Johnny Depp under there), and it just annoys me. They should have got someone else to be Tanto. Beyond that, I think the trailer looks pretty good. However, the Johnny Depp thing is SO annoying – that I probably won’t go see the movie.
I love a good post apocalyptic-y type world. I also love a good sci-fi. I also love movies with a very small cast. And I love Will Smith. I’m sold. The trailer also looks beautiful. I’ve watched the trailer about 3 times now, and I still stop to watch it. I also love the fact that it’s Will Smith and Jaden Smith actually playing father and son. Great choice. It just makes it feel so much more authentic that way.
There is one problem with the movie – which the trailer doesn’t mention – It’s M. Night Shyamalan. His recent stuff has been complete shit (cough the village cough last airbender cough), but this looks like it could be a really good comeback for him. Lets hope so, because I have high hopes for it.
Meh. Not excited. Partly because I feel like I’ve seen the movie from the trailer. And partly because it’s Tom Cruise. I just don’t know about it. I think I might go see it, if I don’t pay for it…. like a rental. Who knows, it may surprise me, but it just doesn’t catch my interest too much. Not visually amazing, lots of CGI, story I think I know… meh. I got most excited in the trailer about the kind of bear trap thing at the end. So if that’s all that got me excited, not good.
On a more amusing note, THIS MOVIE LOOKS AWESOME. I want to see this so bad. I love zombie movies – and this looks hilarious. I also love different takes on zombies, and this looks like it’s a fun newish direction. So I’ll definitely be seeing this movie.

So, I don’t really think I’d like this movie, plot wise, but the set feature especially makes me want to see the movie just because it looks gorgeous. I also like listening to the costume one, just because since I’m not a clothes person, it’s really interesting to hear all the thought that goes into them – WAY more than I ever thought.
