Watch this Cloud Atlas movie trailer

Just watch this extended trailer.

The visuals promise greatness.

The musical score… well, the music for this is essentially a series of nested solos… just like the story.

Cloud Atlas – based on the book I’ve never heard of before now.

On Stranger Tides

It’s time to do the “Pirates of the Caribbean sucked, so why are they making another?” routine and…

Does this mermaid make your cork bob up and down?

Okay, maybe we’ll watch the trailer to see what develops…

Harry Potter, ready to die

So Help Me God, if anyone accuses this of being a “kid’s story” then they really haven’t been paying attention.

Dumbledore! NOOOOOOO!

I understand giving up after reading the first book, or even the first and the first part of the second book in the Harry Potter series and then leaving it on the shelf. But if you gave up after the first movie thinking the whole thing was bogus trash, I wish you well in your life. Go with Peace.

The stage is set, and the players are in place. The movie begins November 19th, and it’s split into two movies. There’s a lot of action taking place early in the first movie, and let’s just say that bad things happen to good people. Yes, there’s boring parts (cough!cough!in the forestcough!cough!) but that’s only to set up the emotional roller coaster that comes next.

On with the trailer!

Harry Potter and the Now It Gets Freaking Serious movie

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is so much fun they split it into two parts. The first part plays this November, and the second and last movie in the series plays sometime around when Daniel Radcliffe reaches retirement age.

Here, Harry is getting some face time with the always scary Voldemort:

I'm scared. Hold me.

I won’t spoil the movie for you, but I will tell you where they break this final book of J.K.Rowling’s into the movie’s first and second parts. The first part ends where they all walk around in the forest, and the second part begins somewhere in that damn forest. I swear, about two hundred pages of the book has Harry, Ron and Hermione walking around in the middle of nowhere.

When you DO go see this movie, do not fail to watch the opening sequence. It will start with a great chase scene.

But now for the trailer.
If you haven’t seen it yet, you’re in for a treat.
Me? I’m all tingly.

It’s a cute Friday vid

Of all the videos I could have put on for this Friday, I figured I’d go cute.

And yes, I’m making you click through, because when some smartphone browsers load Cuppacafe’s main page, they freak out on all the vids the Perfessor posts and won’t play any of them.

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