A Review of 7 Previews
Seen tonight before The Day the Earth Stood Still. By the way, I paid a total of $5.50 for me and my wife to see this. Suck it up, big city people.
- Taken - Leam Neeson's daughter gets kidnapped in Europe. He gets on a cell and tells the kidnappers, "I don't have much in the way of ransom, but what I do have is a life time of gathering rather special skills. If any harm comes to my daughter, I will find you and kill you." This looks to be kick-ass good.
- 2012 - This is when the Mayan calendar ends. Doomsday. The trailer merely said, "Google 2012." Oh what a teaser. If that was the best they could do for a trailer, fuck 'em. I'm sure the film itself will probably suck.
- State of Play - Russell Crowe is a reporter looking into the death of a congressman's lady. While doing so, he uncovers a huge conspiracy. Which is a good thing, because plain old murders are never good enough on their own. This also looks to be good.
- Star Trek - OH HELL YEAH!!!!!! I CAN'T WAIT. I WANNA SEE THIS NOW!!!!
- Terminator Salvation - Will this film terminate the Terminator franchise? It all depends on a grown up John Connor (Batman), and how much box office this does. I'm a sucker for all things Terminator and catch the Sarah Conner Chronicles (Try saying that three times) whenever I can. I'll be there for this.
- Race to Witch Mountain - This third installment has the two alien kids trying to get to their flying saucer before the bad guys do. I've never understood that why, with their alien super-powers, these kids need to rely on adults, especially Dwayne (Da Rock) Johnson. I mean couldn't they rely on an adult with a modicum of acting talent? I could just see a bunch of pissed off eleven-year-olds wandering around the set muttering "I can't work with this guy!" This is probably a pretty good flick to take the kids to, though. Or better yet, probably a pretty good flick to make a guy who lost a bet to you go see with your kids in tow.
- Wolverine - Fact: Coaster loves comic book movies. This looks to be no exception. It's an origin movie with Hugh Jackman. I didn't know this one was in development. Merry Christmas, Coaster (Though I'm going to have to wait until May to open this gift).
The movie gods have been good to Coaster.
