I just have not been as active on the blog as I'd like to be. So excuse the laziness of creating separate posts. But today I went on a trailer watching binge, and found 5 that I'd like to share with you. They are in no particular order. Feel free to watch the trailers and then my thoughts after.
Did you like that? It's only a teaser for a 2014 release, but I can't wait to see this movie. I am not the biggest fan of Ice Cube, but I think Kevin Hart is one of the most underrated comedians today. He doesn't get too many leading roles, and it's a shame. I love this guy. The movie definitely feels like the polar opposite of Training Day, and that's not a bad thing. I hope future trailers show us more, while leaving something for the release.
These guys just keep going and going. Stallone and Schwarzenegger don't look like they ever want to stop making movies. And I ask you... would that be such a bad thing? I have a lot of respect for these guys. They're trying to make entertaining movies, that don't take themselves too seriously. And I feel like they know they're never going to make Oscar caliber films, but they're entertaining as hell. Escape Plan looks like a lot of fun. And I can't wait to see what Jim Caviezel does with his role as the warden. I'm in.
Unfortunatly, this is a movie people wanted to hate from the day it was announced. And even more so, since it was announced that Ashton Kutcher would be playing the man that changed the world, Steve Jobs. And to be honest with you, I'm not sure why people want to hate this movie. I don't know much of anything about Steve Jobs, outside of what has become 'common knowledge' in our society. I know about he and his partner, Steve Wozniak, started the company in a garage (the partner being played by Josh Gad). I know he was forced out of the company, only to make a triumphant return a decade later. As you can see in the trailer, those events are obviously going to be touched upon, but so too are other less famous myths about the man. I don't think Kutcher is going to win any bio-pic Oscars, ala Jamie Foxx or Daniel Day-Lewis; but I think he'll do a fine job... no pun intended.
So there you have it. 5 movie trailers, 5 opinions. Now what do you think? Am I way off on my assessments? Would you go see these films? Let me know.
