Movie Trailers

Since my class has ended, more like since I finished writing all the essays I was missing and turned them in, I've been spending some time going over some movie trailers trying to figure out what movies to look forward to and which ones to make fun of. There are a lot of films out there just asking to be ridiculed. Instead of wasting time on those I thought I'd share some that I am looking forward to seeing or ones that I just thought looked funny:

Team America: World Police -- It's funny that a film like this is coming out after the Thunderbirds gets remade and replaced with a live cast. How did anybody ever greenlight Bill Paxton in a movie after... you could really put just about anything of his here, and why is Ben Kingsley making films like this? This actually has nothing to do with Team America, but these questions need answers.

SpongeBob Squarepants: The Movie -- Being a fan of the show of course I'm going to look forward to seeing an hour and a half of spongy goodness. And the teaser is one of the most imaginative things I've seen in my 23 years.

Alien vs. Predator -- I've been looking forward to this one for awhile, 'cause I'm a comic book nerd and a sci-fi dork. After a bunch of video games and comics telling stories about it we finally get to see some action on the big screen.

Napoleon Dynamite -- I don't often like stupid comedies, can't beat The Jerk, but this one looks pretty good. I don't have a clue why this one is so different to me, maybe it's because it was made by Mormons. They're a weird people.

The Incredibles -- Pixar can do no wrong in my book. I have yet to dislike a film they've made and Sam "Bad Mother Fucker" Jackson is in this one.

Garden State -- I've been waiting for this one for months. This guy told me about it and after seeing the trailer I was hooked like a heroin addict on Coke. I also recently discovered Zach Braff's blog about what he's been doing recently to promote the film and his thanks for everyone's support. I didn't know this blog stuff was so trendy.

Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events -- Again, don't know why I like this one. I saw the trailer and just thought Jim Carrey was funny as hell and he plays a number of parts. After a couple of flops my faith in him returned when I saw Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Bruce Almighty. And after taking a quick look at IMDB for some stuff on him it looks like he's going to be playing Walter Mitty in a film just announced.

Finding Neverland -- Johnny Depp, (with the exception of Secret Window) 'nuff said. Looks like he's got some good stuff coming up too.

Collateral -- I haven't seen to many movies where people get shot lately. That's really the only reason. I'm not a big fan of Tom Cruise, I think he's overrated.

Batman Begins -- For the love of Joe, it's fucking Batman! And this one doesn't look like it'll blow. The only beef I've got is the weird title.

There may be a few other trailers that I've seen that have sparked an interest in me, but nothing really worth mentioning. This is a pretty good list for now. If there's anything you find let me know and I'll check it out and possibly make fun of you for recommending such a stupid movie.

This is a record for me as "longest post yet." High five!
