Smart ladies love movies, this week in trailers, September 14, 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

Black Mass

I have zero interest in this film. The only positive I can think is that if Johnny Depp is nominated for awards he will be fun in fashion posts –maybe??? [But… Jesse Plemons? Johnny Depps’ makeup is HORRIFYING. I like gangster movies and films based on a true story, but that makeup does not need to be seen on a big screen. -M]

Chloe and Theo, is out onDemand and for Rent

SLLS fave Dakota Johnson plays a homeless woman trying to help an Eskimo warn the United Nation about climate change. It looks like something I will enjoy at 1 AM when it’s on Netflix. [When I read Katie’s comment, I thought, “UGH 1AM?!” because I am old. I hope this is funny, I want Dakota Johnson to succeed. Mira Sorvino looks GREAT. -M]

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

Our Brand is Crisis, October 30, 2015

This movie has a great cast and looks like it is that perfect combination of moving and funny. I am also a big fan of movies that were supposed to star a man and instead went and cast a woman –GO SANDY! [Man, Sandy looks awesome too. Everyone involved with this is fantastic–Clooney, Peter Straughan (adapted Wolf Hall, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Frank), and director David Gordon Green. Good stuff! -M]

The Danish Girl, November 27, 2015

Now see Academy, you should have given Keaton the Oscar last year, and given Eddie the award this year (full disclosure I recently watched The Theory of Everything on HBO and it wasn’t that great. It made me angry all over again that Keaton got the shaft.). This movie looks infinitely more interesting than The Theory of Everything. Also we love Alicia Vikander. [I agree with Katie about everything and I will definitely see this. It looks much better and more thoughtful than all the outlets make it appear–“Eddie Redmayne as a woman OMG!!” Plus, more of best dressed Eddie Redmayne on the red carpet! -M]

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

The Lobster, TBA 2015

Another late night Netflix movie! This movie looks amusing and weird. I’m glad Colin Farrell found another part to play with a mustache (the best thing in True Detective 2). [I wish Colin Farrell would do more like this, he is so good in funny/weird things. I STILL don’t like Rachel Weisz but everyone else is great and I love the look of the cinematography. -M]

Miss You Already, November 6, 2015

I really want to love this as it is a movie starring two women, directed by a woman, about female friendships and yet the first time I saw this trailer I just thought BEACHES and sadly that Kate Hudson terminal cancer rom-com. I hope the reviews put these thoughts to bed. [I love female friendship movies, but not movies that involve cancer and/or death, so I am really on the fence about this one. Catherine Hardwicke’s direction was actually one of the best things about the first Twilight movie. -M]

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

Krampus, December 4, 2015

This starts out so promising and then turns into a horror movie. I am happy that Toni Collette gets so much work. [But people are going to watch THE CRAP out of this. Like, new cult Christmas hit. I will refuse to see it because I hate scary things and then be annoyed when everyone wants to talk about it like The Babadook last year. -M]
