Smart ladies love moves, this week in trailers, March 30, 2015


Movie Trailer Monday

Each week I review movie trailers that came out the previous week or for movies that are about to premiere. Some of these movies I am excited about, some I am mildly curious about, and the rest I make fun of!

Notable movies coming out this weekend

Furious 7

Vin Diesel (superstar and awesome human being –seriously I love him so fucking much) has declared that Furious 7 will and should win the Oscar for Best Picture in 2016 and though he was kind of teased for this declaration on Conan and well pretty much everywhere else except at The Daily Dot which stated (and this is just the best quote ever), “That’s what Furious 7 is. It’s the moviest movie that ever movied. It’s divine.” As someone who enjoys action movies especially ones starring Vin Diesel, The Rock, and Jason Statham (all of which are in Furious 7) I am super stoked to be movied by the moviest movie ever! [These movies aren’t really my thing, but between Katie and my friend Caitlin, I have learned to appreciate Vin Diesel as a person. He named his daughter after Paul Walker–how effing cute is that? -M]

The Last Five Years, is out onDemand and for Rent

This is one of those musicals where I love every song that comes on On Broadway. It stars Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan (he originated the role of Jack on Broadway in Newsies) who are phenomenal singers and Kendrick is an amazing actress so I’m super excited that this is available to rent. I’m curious how they did this as a film since it has a unique structure, Kendrick’s character starts at the end of the relationship and Jordan’s character starts from the beginning and the songs are sung back and forth between the two. [I am intrigued by this and already began listening to the play’s soundtrack on Spotify. I will watch Anna Kendrick in anything. -M]

Movies I can’t wait to see in an ACTUAL theater

Slow West, May 15, 2015

This trailer has such a cool funny tone that I HOPE the movie is also cool and funny. It is such a revisionist western. If it’s lousy at least get to look at Fassy in cowboy garb –WINNING! [Katie and I know everything about revisionist westerns because we took a class on them in college. I think I got a C because we used to cut class to drink gallons of coffee. This won an award at Sundance and is being released in the late spring–as opposed to right now–so I have high hopes it’s good. CoS gave it a favorable review too. -M]

Spectre, November 6, 2015

I CANNOT WAIT! [I have never seen a new Bond film in the theatre and I’m not going to start now (though the cast is intriguing), unless they wise up and hire Idris. -M]

I won’t go to an ACTUAL theater but will pay for it on Amazon

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, July 31, 2015

This would be in the must watch section except that it no longer has Paula Patton and well Paula Patton kind of classed up the Mission Impossible series. [I love these shitty movies, especially after someone convinced Jeremy Renner and Simon Pegg to be in them. I do agree with Katie that I will watch the crap out of this on TV but I’d rather have my movie-theater dollars go to female directors or better films for women. Yes, I hate me too. -M]

You would have to PAY me to see it in an ACTUAL theater

The Transporter Refueled, TBA

I miss Jason Statham. I always think of Ed Skrein as a poor man’s Michiel Huisman because he was dropped from Game of Thrones and replaced by Huisman. [And literally no one complained about that switch either, because Huisman is extremely hot and charming–someone you could see Daenerys falling in love with. In any case, why are they making Transporter movies without Jason Statham? Maybe they should have cast Michiel Huisman. And put a different goddamn song in the trailer. -M]
