Trailer Talk : Number 1

The Previews: Movie studios spend a lot of time putting together the previews that are meant to drive you running into the theaters to throw down your hard earned dollars on the "Stuff" the churn out.
The previews show you some of the good parts of the film (Like little sound bits) they entice us to see the films. Sometimes they are able to fool us completely and sucker us into otherwise bad films with a great trailer that literally includes every good scene from the movie. Having just done a movie review-(it seems strange to say this) ---but i never base going to see a movie on a movie review. Seriously what do they know?? I see a movie based on the trailers....and I've improved my bad movie spotting skills (at least for movies that I see in the theaters---what I'm willing to watch at home or on Netflix is a whole different matter).. So in trailer talk I will just give you my instant impressions of some movies
Apollo 18 ------It looks like a decent horror movie...but nothing special......"Find out why we never went back to the moon" Sure ---but I'll wait for Netflix to find out
Crazy, Stupid, Love ------Looks entertaining. Like a really good Steve Carrell movie like Real Life with Dan. (but I know when I see it I will be thinking --why did you leave The Office Steve.....Because 22 episodes of The Office is better than any one movie you can put out.....Ask Jennifer Aniston)
Rise of the Planet of the Apes -----I don't need to see the origin story.....I'm still confused by Tim Burton's terrible ending to the first reboot....where even in the Director's commentary he seemed clueless to his own films ending.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2----A small little independent film that I may just check out.....This finally looks like it might be the epic movie that the other Potters could have been....Maybe even Lord of the Rings calibur.......I just hope they got all the boring parts of the book out of the way in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 (my least favorite Potter movie)
Captain America ---I'm not a big comic book movie fan (I usually wait for DVD on most of them) and Captain America running around shooting guns at Nazis with his silly outfit and shield is probably a rental at best.
