Smart ladies love movies, this week in trailers, November 24, 2014


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

The Imitation Game, November 28, 2014

I am a huge fan of the Dougray Scott-Kate Winslet movie Enigma, a fictional account of the WWII goings on at Bletchley Park so I am very intrigue by this biography of Alan Turing and his work breaking the German Enigma code which greatly helped the Allies win WWII. I also might be excited about this movie because of Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, and Allen Leach AKA BRANSON! [Oh I do really want to see this. I am sure I will fall into an internet hole while I research this at work–it’s going to be a slow-ass two days. -M]

All Relative, is out onDemand and for Rent (starting November 6th)

Man has a weekend fling then falls in love with the ladies daughter –FUN?!? I do think Connie Nielsen is super pretty and looks way younger than 49. In fact I was going to complain about her being cast as the mother of an adult. [It feels like this was probably pitched to more famous people–Taylor Schilling and Diane Lane, maybe?–and they refused. This trailer is edited to make the movie seem charming and fun, when it is actually probably painful to watch. -M]

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

Pitch Perfect 2, May 15, 2015

I’m not going to lie when Pitch Perfect was on HBO and Cinemax I think I watched some portion of it at least once a week and I MISS IT NOW IT’S GONE! Pitch Perfect 2 was directed by Elizabeth Banks which makes me even more excited for its May release. [This makes two posts today where we will mention Elizabeth Banks AND FLULA, who plays one of the German singers–I am so happy! (They were both at the AMAs–that posts at noon.) I hope we get to know some of the girls more and I ADORE John Michael Higgins and Elizabeth Banks’ characters. Katey Sagal is in this too, she will probably sing! -M]

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

The DUFF, April 10, 2015

The only reason this movie isn’t in the “they would have to pay me” section is because I think Mae Whitman is smart and therefore this movie must be better than the trailer makes it out to be OR she made this for the cash. [It’s like our favorite movie She’s All That, but with Allison Janney! Everyone is way too old to be in high school (did you see that guy’s chest?), they should have set it in college. I will only watch this crap if it comes to HBO or Katie and I watch it together. -M]

Danny Collins, TBA 2015

Al Pacino plays a musician Al Pacino BUT this Al Pacino wants to reconnect with his son Bobby Cannavale and date Annette Benning (dear Annette this is NOT how you win an Oscar). [Who talked her into this? WARREN, IS THAT YOU? I do love stories about washed up musicians; however, I would never pay to see this. I will just watch Crazy Heart again. -M]

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

Cinderella, March 13, 2015

Ummmm this trailer gives away the entire plot of this film AND Lily James’ waist looks like it was shrunk using CGI. I also don’t care if it has Cate Blanchett or Helena Boham-Carter because from this trailer it appears that Cinderella is the same old drip who needs a man to save her from her shitty life AND the man is Robb Stark, the least interesting Stark. AT Least the super adorable Mirror Mirror made Snow White tough so that she could battle the Queen herself. [Disney needs to work on abandoning sexist tropes in order to become more modern. I would make my imaginary children watch Ever After a hundred times before they saw this. I did spy my favorite Qarthian (is that a thing?), Nonso Anozie, in the trailer. Robb’s hair looks fucking terrible. PASS. -M]
