Well, we’ve got a new batch of trailers, for movies some of us have already decided we will, or won’t see. As per usual, the more trailers I watch, for some movie I was highly enthusiastic about six months ago, the less I want to see it. I think trailers are specifically designed to make you hate a movie before you see it, and you should probably just keep your trailer watching to a minimum. Well, probably I should.
Except, from time to time, there is that rare trailer that makes you more excited to see the movie.
I’m still not sure how I feel about this movie, except to say Tom is starting to look a bit worn. Apparently, this isn’t just a remake but, like the Ghostbusters, a re-imagining. Well, the special effects indeed look special, and there’s Russell Exposition, to give us the lowdown.
War for the Planet of the Apes:
I had no intention of seeing this movie, after all, I haven’t seen any of the previous ones. I have a friend who is really enthusiastic about this series, but I was put off by the animal abuse, in the first film. I get the point of these movies (slavery allegories don’t excite me) but I couldn’t get past the animal abuse. It bothered me for several days afterward, and I decided I wouldn’t watch any of the movies, not having finished the first one.
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets
Well, it’s still really really pretty. I love movies, but it’s both a blessing, and a curse. Sometimes, I just get tired of looking at white ppl have incredible adventures in movies. (At such moments you gotta break out the Japanese anime, or Chinese action movies.)
The more I see of this movie, the less I want the to see it. I love the Alien movies, but I have no intention of seeing this.
Well, this is the rare movie, that I still want to see, after having watched several trailers. I still love little Tom Holland, no matter how mad the children on Tumblr might be about him.
I may or may not see this movie. I’m a little dubious about the humor in this scene, but the first movie had some nice, funny, surprises, so I’m still game.
