When you watch as many things as I do and go out of your way to analyze them, you find a lot of flaws. Even stuff people normally like have landed with a flat nothing for me. Maybe I’m jaded or simply know too much about plot structure. But the upside is when I find something transcendentally good, the experience is all the better. Sometimes, it can make my entire week.
Trailers are their own unique pieces of art. Sometimes better than the movies/shows they go with. The time restraint forces creativity and efficiency. These five are some of the best I’ve seen lately.
The Matrix Resurrections trailer is here, and it’s honestly better than I was expecting. The action scenes, the slick editing: it’s fun to watch this trailer by itself, let alone what it’ll be like with the actual film.
I’m late to the party for the Raya and the Last Dragon trailer. The newest Disney Princess movie is coming out in only a few days.
I was almost completely dismissive.
But then I saw the trailer.
This seems like something different.
Wonder Woman 1984: More Excellence I don’t know what it is about Wonder Woman, but it was the first good DC movie, and it looks like this will be the same. This trailer is wonderful. The shots of her riding the lightning by lasso is such a novel, cool visual, and something that no other…
The New Mutants Might Save The X-Men The New Mutants is a gamble. If the critical consensus is anything to go by, the recent X-Men movies have been a disappointment across the board. But perhaps the problem is that they have been stuck with the same few characters, ideas, and plot lines. What if they…
The Rise of Skywalker Is So Important Leave hot takes about The Last Jedi by the door, we are talking about the end of another saga, and one of the biggest moments in nerd culture since the last momentous one, like, a few months ago: The Rise of Skywalker is here. And while the first…
Sonic The Hedgehog (2019) Is So BAD I already knew that the Sonic The Hedgehog movie was going to be bad. But, wow, I was not expecting it to be this loathsome. It reminds me of the Woody Woodpecker movie, and that is one of the most damning comparisons I think I’ve ever made. Let…
Movie Better Be Better Than This Trailer… The trailer for Men in Black: International does not have enough aliens. A petty complaint, but it’s a major draw of the franchise. And that’s only one complaint. It does not communicate the MIB being a secretive organization well and half of the scenes seem to be an…
Deadpool 2 Pulled No Comedic Punches (SPOILERS AHEAD!) Deadpool 2 is a movie that left me in an odd state. Before it came out, I was watching the heck out of Deadpool 2’s promotional content. I was so excited for Peter: he made me cackle with laughter. And, so, with that in mind, while I…
So after the tonal catastrophe that was the first Star Trek Beyond trailer, we got this. Now, while the previous trailer requires no better description than the above sentence (although I must say, it is, in some ways, growing on me, but you didn’t read that here, or anywhere), this one is an improvement. That said, here’s…
