Trailer Tuesday: Crazy Stupid Love

Movies like Crazy Stupid Love, due in theaters on July 29, 2011, make me nervous, especially when I take a liking for the trailer. 99 percent of the time they simply cannot replicate the two and a half minute euphoria they achieved in the trailer, but, as I with Warrior, I’m giving this movie the benefit of the doubt based solely on the cast. Steve Carell (Dinner for Schmucks), Ryan Gosling (Blue Valentine), Julianne Moore (The Kids Are Alright), Emma

Trailer…eh…Wednesday? Soul Surfer!

If there was ever a great example of a teaser trailer, this short preview for Soul Surfer fits the bill perfectly. Clocking in speechless at a little over a minute, about all we know is AnnaSophia Robb (Race to Witch Mountain) has grown up, Dennis Quaid (Pandorum) and Helen Hunt (Then She Found Me) are looking super old and country singer Carrie Underwood is smokin’ hot. But in all seriousness, I kind of like the brevity, tone and feel of

Morning Glory Trailer Delivers Laughs and Charm

Here’s what I know: Nobody needs career revitalization more than Harrison Ford, Rachel McAdams, Jeff Goldblum and Diane Keaton. The irony is they are all terrific screen presences – even terrific actors, if I dare go that far – but the truth is they haven’t had a hit in quite some time.  And no, Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull does not count as a hit for Harrison Ford and Sherlock Holmes does not count as a

Trailer Tuesday: Life As We Know It

Maybe it’s the clouds and rain here in Northern Utah, or maybe it’s the post-holiday blues, but I couldn’t help feel warm fuzzies during this trailer for Life As We Know It, a new romantic starring Katherine Heigl (Killers, The Ugly Truth) and Josh Duhamel (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, When in Rome). Chances are it will probably suck ten levels of bum at the box office (and probably get raped and pillaged by the ever-fickle movie critic horde), but

New Prince of Persia Trailer Surprisingly Not Turdtastic

I don’t care for the Prince of Persia video game franchise. I’m not a huge fan of Jake Gyllenhaal (although I did like him in Zodiac) and I’m usually hit and miss with everyone’s favorite guy that once played Gandhi, Ben Kingsley (Shutter Island). So, to say the least, I have not been in the Cartwheel Club for Disney’s Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. From posters to trailers, thus far the movie has failed to hook me. Imagine

Trailer Tuesday: The Pirate Movie

I’m sending you back to 1982 via Trailer Tuesday with The Pirate Movie, a musical loosely based on Gilbert and Sullivan’s “comic opera,” The Pirates of Penzance. You remember 1982. It was the year of the Tylenol cyanide scare, the first artificial heart transplant and the year Michael Jackson’s Thriller sold 20 million albums to become the biggest selling record ever. Me? I had just turned 8 years-old and had spent that summer crying at E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, crapping my

Trailer Tuesday: The Last Song

Whenever I see or hear Miley Cyrus I want to punch my own testicles. It’s true. Having an 11 year-old daughter has filled me with enough Hannah/Miley entertainment to last an eternity. Reading, watching and viewing the sideshow that is her life just makes it all worse for wear. So, to say the least, when I saw this trailer for The Last Song, I was foaming at the mouth for the chance to berate lil’ Miley and her new movie.
