Trying something new today: A post consisting of a series of trailers for movies I find interesting — and some I consider execrable. It’s a sort of good, the bad and the ugly of coming attractions.
First the films I am looking forward to seeing…
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson doing Hercules the way it should be done? Yes, please.
- Edge of Tomorrow
This looks like Source Code as told from the other side — what happens to a doomed hero on his personal Groundhog Day in hell. Yeah, Tom Cruise doesn’t have a great batting average with sci-fi, but — Emily Blunt is considerably better at picking material.
- A Million Ways to Die in the West
Okay, so it does look stupid, but the trailer makes me laugh — and Ted was f***ing funny, all right? (In all honestly, though, I can’t picture myself paying to see this in the theater…)
And now, the movies I don’t care to see, but maybe watching the trailer will change your mind in case you’re tempted to venture into the multiplex and surrender your hard-earned cash.
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle
No, I wouldn’t see this if Megan Fox were naked in it.
- Transformers: Age of Extinction
Oh, Titus Welliver, from Argo to T:AoE — you needed a paycheck this badly?
- There’s also a trailer for Blended, the latest crime against humanity from Adam Sandler, but even I have standards, so there’s no way I’m linking to it.
That’s all from the trailer park today, kiddies. Let me know if you like this idea — or even if you hate it.
