Smart ladies love movies, this week in trailers, June 1, 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


I’m sad this didn’t come out this past weekend because Melissa and I could have watched this together, instead we watched two great indie movies directed by women (Laggies and Life Partners), two movies directed by women that were notable for being better than their source material (Fifty Shades of Grey and Twilight), and one movie we couldn’t even finish (Vampire Academy –SO BAD). [Vampire Academy was so painful. I don’t want to think of it–or Sarah Hyland’s bad curly hair–ever again. Spy is exactly the kind of summer movie I like, so I will definitely be going to the movies on Saturday at 10am (the best people go that early) to see it. -M]

Results, is out onDemand and for Rent

I hope this movie is the return of Guy Pearce to not playing either a depressive or a creep, I don’t need him to be hot or heroic I just need him to be fun again. ALSO Cobie Smulders is a treasure. [I want to see this so badly! Kevin Corrigan is one of my favorites. I liked several other Andrew Bujalski films, and this looks like a polished, more accessible (but still great) version of them. -M]

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

The End of the Tour, July 31, 2015

I had very little interest in this movie when I first read about other than my love for both Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel but this trailer is great (and subsequently depressing) and made me really excited to see it. [I cried so hard the first time I saw this trailer. And then immediately IMed Katie to see what she thought. I was not into this casting of Segel as DFW, but it makes sense now that I’ve seen the trailer. He changes his voice–it’s not an exact match but he has the pitch/accent right–and mannerisms so much. It’s still weird that someone is playing a dead writer I like so soon after his death (2008) at a young age (46). -M]

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

We Are Your Friends, August 28, 2015

I bet you dollars to doughnuts in a year Melissa and I will watch this on Netflix for free and live tweet it. Oh wouldn’t Fifty Shades of Grey have been interesting with Zac Efron as Christian Grey. He is WAY more charismatic than the Jamie Dornan AND he is kind of a contemporary of RPatz so it would be appropriate. [Why does he wear those headphones all the time? To show everyone he’s a DJ? There’s a lot about this movie that makes me angry (treatment of women as just their bodies, another film about young men trying to make it), but I have liked Zac since HSM so I will keep watching his crappy movies. -M]

Point Break, December 25, 2015

Recently on an episode of Scrotal Recall (much better show than the title) one of the character hilariously acted out the entire plot of the original Point Break and for the first time ever I really really wanted to see the movie. Here is the trailer for the remake. ALSO watch Scrotal Recall so it gets a second season AND makes Netflix take more chances on British comedies. [Unnecessary remakes drive me crazy. This seems much more serious than the original Point Break and therefore terrible. -M]

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

Knock Knock, TBA 2015

We will never recommend an Eli Roth film UNLESS it’s Hemlock Grove (NETFLIX WHERE THE FUCK IS SEASON 3)! [Is this filmed in Palm Springs? Soooo pretty. Funny that Keanu, star of the original Point Break, is in this dumb shit. His acting has not improved, either. -M]
