Smart ladies love movies, this week in trailers, October 20, 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


There isn’t any real awards bait movie out this week BUT Keira Knightley will most likely be nominated for The Imitation Game and Laggies looks super good and it’s the only movie out this week I would actually pay money to see. [This looks delightful! It stars two teenage actors I really like, Chloe Grace Moretz and Kaitlyn Dever, who is so fucking incredible on Justified and also is in Men, Women & Children. Also, WRITTEN AND DIRECTED by women! -M]

White Bird in a Blizzard, is out onDemand and for Rent

I have no idea what this movie wants to be-coming of age movie, thriller, creepy art movie, and/or all of the above. It doesn’t really matter because I will pretty much watch anything with Eva Green, Shailene Woodley, and Gabourey Sidibe. [A+ for set design and casting Gabourey, but Eva Green looks SO SAD and I hate the uber pretentious title. -M]

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

Top Five, December 5, 2014

This is the 3rd film written and directed by the AWESOME Chris Rock and it looks amazing. Then again, he had me at a trailer which prominently features Charlie Rose, Kevin Hart, and Tracey Morgan. [This should be legitimately funny. I wish Rock was hosting SNL in December to really promote this instead of in two weeks but oh well. -M]

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

Focus, February 27, 2015

I love a good con movie but I’m not sure whether this is going to be fun or some weird hybrid of fun and overly dramatic. I’m also not sure how I feel about Will Smith when he is dramatic. Focus also stars Margot Robbie from The Wolf of Wall Street which I haven’t seen but she was super cute and funny on every Awards show red carpet last year. [The screencap of Will Smith below is so funny that I cannot take Focus seriously and could not complete the trailer. -M]

In the Heart of the Sea, March 13, 2015

Ron Howard directs HOTTIES AT SEA! This movie is probably better than that but in my mind it’s hot dudes trying to kill a whale. [I would probably get motion sickness if I saw this in the theater but maybe on TV? The colors are so pretty and like a painting. -M]

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

Dying of the Light, December 5, 2014


Currently, Paul Schrader, the director of this movie, and its stars Nick Cage and Anton Yelchin, are in silent protest against its release because it was drastically changed by the studio. This looks like it might have been a good Nick Cage movie but it’s never a good sign when the films own director doesn’t want you to watch their film. [While I am mildly intrigued by the protest, I am completely certain that I will never watch this ever. -M]
