Baby Driver trailer

There are places on the web to see trailers, so while I really like several good movie trailers recently
THIS one actually looks cool.

That’s why I posted it here.

No idea if the movie will be great or a bomb, but they do know how to make a trailer

If you don’t like the sound track, the movie is a fail.
I like the sound track.
opens somewhere June 28

Abducted, movie trailer where hottie boy runs between the bullets

Thinking is hard
Taylor Lautner, otherwise known as the wolfboy from the Twilight movie series, is now still a teenager with a problem.

He’s never fit in. His parents have always been strangers.

He finds out why. He was abducted as a child.

Thankfully for us, that’s just the setup, and not the conclusion.

The rest of the movie is a chase movie, with our hero and his girl dodging bullets and riding around in fast cars.

Alfred Molina and Signorney Weaver apparently need repairs to their respective boathouses,
because they were convinced to be in this shoot-em-up.

Your Ultimate Summer 2010 Movie Trailer

Dramatic movie music lords over this ultimate trailer for this Summer’s movies — and you have to have that turned up to full in order to get the right feel for the excitement that’s getting ready to ensue starting in just a week…

Otherwise this mashup of the movie trailers done by Screenrant will seem a bit out of place. After all, when you go see one of these blockbusters, you can expect to have to strain to hear the dialogue and then cover your ears when that overwhelming wall of sound comes during the effects sequence starts…

Aw hell, just hit play and let the millions of dollars worth of CGI effects flow over you.

It’s Robin Hood, but not as you know him

Here’s the big trailer out on Russell Crowe’s ROBIN HOOD. While Crowe was originally slated to play the evil Sheriff instead of Robin, and then slated to perhaps play both, we now get to see common sense has ruled the day and Crowe will be playing Robin. And yes, just like previous shots from this movie, Crowe’s Robin looks quite a lot like some hero from some Roman era Gladiator movie.

Just to refresh your memory as to what the Robin Hood legacy entails in this retelling of the legacy:

“The [..] adventure chronicles the life of an expert archer, previously interested only in self-preservation, from his service in King Richard’s army against the French. Upon Richard’s death, Robin travels to Nottingham, a town suffering from the corruption of a despotic sheriff and crippling taxation, where he falls for the spirited widow Lady Marian (Blanchett), a woman skeptical of the identity and motivations of this crusader from the forest. Hoping to earn the hand of Maid Marian and salvage the village, Robin assembles a gang whose lethal mercenary skills are matched only by its appetite for life. Together, they begin preying on the indulgent upper class to correct injustices under the sheriff.”

So, pretty much your swords and sandals epic… only replacing arrows for swords and tights for sandals… only there’s no tights. Whatever.

And if you just can’t wait to revisit the tale of Robin Hood, go instead and revisit Rabbit Hood.

Winning Oscar movie trailer

Yes, you can see that winning movie trailer below.

But first, a few words as to how pointless the film award ceremonies are. The TV ratings for the Oscar Awards has declined quite a bit over the years, and this has led to the network having to cut the advertising rates just to get enough advertisers to air the long drawn out piece of crap that the Oscars have become.

“The academy has a problem here. The show is way too long, and the films this year are not spectacular,” he said. “If this year’s ratings are down, it could be the tipping point and they will have to make changes.”

Seeing as since this quote is from last year, and the ratings were indeed in the crapper again, you’d think the Oscar folks would change something. Well, as you know by now, they did. They added five more spots to the Best Picture, this time including movies that perhaps some of us have actually paid to see at the movie theaters.

This change to the nominating process merely adds to the fact that the whole affair is pretty much a rigged process. The Oscars have been a point to help struggling studios put out movies whose only chance of being seen is the push of the publicity surrounding the Oscar nominating process. Some movies were slated to be huge money losers if they didn’t get the publicity for being at least nominated for an Oscar. They’d get nominated, noticed, and in some cases rebooked at the local art cinema to handle demand of those newly introduced to this “potentially important” movie. Now, with the internet being the new way of getting these small films — and even cooler, mere concepts of small films — seen, the publicity surrounding the Oscars isn’t quite as important. So, in a way, not only is the internet helping to kill off print media such as newspapers, but it’s also making less important the mere idea of the Oscars as the way that small films with strong ideas become profitable.

Back when I used to actually pay attention to the Oscars, I couldn’t help but weigh the candidates for Best Picture, or Best Actor, and wonder if they won because of their politically correct stance on a topical subject.

Or even better, that nod to the actor who never got nominated but whose work over the decades deserved something.

Remember that when you watch this meta trailer for the Oscar nominated film below.

To make clear what you’re about to watch, every line or piece of text or dialogue (including the opening credits) doesn’t say anything, but instead says what it’s supposed to say. The catch phrase for the “impaired” actor is indeed “Catch Phrase!” These are the tropes that make an Oscar worthy movie.
