Smart ladies love stuff, the week in trailers, February 10, 2014


Movie Trailer Mondays


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 week

Endless Love

I get that this is titled Endless Love but trust me people this is NOT a Valentine’s Day flick. Go see About Last Night with Kevin Hart and hottie Michael Ealy instead OR if you must watch it choose the 80’s version staring Brooke Shields. [Or, even better, Camp Takota, starring all our favorite You Tube ladies, is out Friday online. Drink every time you say “And I’M Mamrie Hart” in your head. -M]

Easy Money: Hard to Kill, is out onDemand and for Rent

The voice-over for this movie is hilarious. This is the sequel to a really popular Swedish film about drugs, starring Joel Kinnamon. [I beg you to watch this trailer for the voice over alone. It is genius. I wish we could hear them speak in Swedish in the trailer. -M]

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

The Right Kind of Wrong. March 14, 2014

I’ve wanted to see this since TIFF, it looks all kinds of indie cute rom-com (I heart you Catch and Release which stars the always awesome Jennifer Garner and the always hot Timothy Olyphant). I hope it is the start of a really nice indie career for True Blood’s, Ryan Kwanten, who is also adorable in Not Suitable for Children, which is available on Netflix and Amazon Prime (bonus Australian accent). [I don’t know if I can support Ryan taking this woman away from Captain Awesome, but Catherine O’Hara is always welcome on my screen. This looks kind of charming in a Proposal kind of way. -M]

Alan Partridge, April 4, 2014

How did I not know they were making an Alan Partridge movie –I knew they were making a sequel to the hilarious Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon mocumentary The Trip?  Anywho, here is Oscar nominated Steve Coogan reprising narcissistic asshole Allen Partridge for the good of humanity. [I’m so glad this is coming out in the US! “Knowing me, Alan Partridge, knowing you, Alan Partridge” is one of my favorite things to say ever. Fun fact: This movie was called Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa in the UK. Now can Netflix PLEASE work on getting all the AP series on streaming??!! -M]

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

HairBrained, February 28, 2014

This kind of looks like a poor man’s Wes Anderson film and yet it also stars Brendan Fraser whom I think is an underrated comedian (Airheads is a CLASSIC) so this is definitely a wait for it to be on Amazon. [I usually want to punch most precocious children in movies but this kid is a wait-and-see. I HATE the title. -M]

Ernest & Celestine, February 28, 2014

Ernest & Celestine is one of the five nominated movies for Animated Feature and it looks adorable. This is the trailer for the English language version it is originally French. [I liked the Triplets of Belleville (I know, shocking, it’s a cartoon) and this kind of animation always makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. I will pull for this on Oscar night against Frozen since I had to listen to the soundtrack on repeat at a baby shower this weekend. UGH. -M]

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

Maleficent, May 30, 2014

Dear Disney, I’m already kind of peeved you are ruining the story of one of my favorite animated movies with this live-action farce so having Lana Del Rey breathlessly sing a childhood classic isn’t improving anything. ALSO why does she always have to sing like she is in a dystopian YA novel?!? [Katie, I fear Lana Del Rey is never going to leave us. She could have been only a memory but people actually enjoy her music and have continued to give her work. Also, while the makeup/costumes/art direction of this movie look fantastic, it is WAY too scary for me. LDR probably makes it scarier. -M]
