Smart ladies love movies, this week in trailers, August 7, 2014


Movie Trailer Thursday


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 tomorrow

The Hundred-Foot Journey

Hear let Steven Speilberg and Oprah tell you why this movie starring Helen Mirren is going to knock your socks off with pizzazz. It will also make you hungry for French and/or Indian food upon leaving the theater. [When I first saw this trailer before The Fault in Our Stars, my girlfriends and I looked at each other and all mouthed “that guy is so hot!” Later I found out that guy is Manish Dayal. RAWR. Anyways I would go see this with my mom. -M]

4 Minute Mile, is out onDemand and for Rent

Poor kid from a fucked up family tries to get a sport scholarship this time by running a 4 minute mile and being mentored by the supremely talented Richard Jenkins. [I would probably enjoy this movie but I hate running. Also I can’t stop singing “I’m always fucking up the 4-minute mile.” -M]

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

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, November 21, 2014

We are finally going to dissect the 3 new teasers for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. I call the below trailer “DAMMIT PEETA –of course you were caught and brainwashed by the capital.” I have yet to read the final book but I hope like hell it has Peeta owning his own bakery, he deserves to do something he is good at and likes. [TEAM PEETA. I love Josh Hutcherson most of all. -M]

I like to call this trailer “Damn Johanna you look fine AND seriously NOT AMUSED!” [I love how she puts her hand on her hips! Bitch, pleeeeeeease. -M]

And this last teaser is simply “Katniss will reluctantly save everyone for the good of mankind AND this time without Peeta always fucking shit up.” [Seeing PSH here made me cry. I don’t know if I can see Mockingjay. M]

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

Whiplash, October 10, 2014

I heart J.K. Simmons and Miles Teller so I am going to give this the benefit of the doubt but I really hate movies where a kid is bullied by an asshole. [I really like that he’s a drummer but the only woman in this trailer is a love interest-type. BORED NOW. -M]

Horns, October 31, 2014

This looks scary but also looks darkly funny, I dig Daniel Radcliffe so I will watch this once I can from my couch for less than 5 bucks. [I’m really impressed with the movies Radcliffe has been choosing post-Potter. Also, Max Minghella! -M]

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

Tusk, September 19, 2014

Ummmmm, Kevin Smith, this looks…interesting. I’m hoping  this horror movie has better humor than the lame Canada jokes in the trailer but I am uncomfortable with poor Justin Long being turned into a walrus to actually ever see this movie. The title makes me think of Fleetwood Mac so that’s a positive comment (bonus Fleetwood Mac video down below). [Why does everyone pick on Canada? They have like 11 months of paid maternity leave! It’s nice there. Also Justin’s mustache is HORRIFYING. -M]

Bonus “Tusk,” by Fleetwood Mac
