Some trailers…

Posted on June 15, 2011. Filed under: Trailers | Tags: , , , |

The other reason I love going it the cinema, besides the ear shattering volume and giant pictures, is the trailers. On the front of X Men we had a few worth paying attention two.

The first was a trailer which looked like it was going to be for something really cool. It’s actually the second time I’ve seen this one on a big screen and it still suckered me in with its 196o’s space race preamble. I started wondering what this new cool movie with Steven Spielberg’s name on it could be.

Turns out it was Transformers 3. So that sucks.

The next trailer which caught my eye was for Green Lantern. Now, I still haven’t forgiven Ryan Reynolds for defecting to the bad side. Especially when going from Deadpool to Lantern is a massive move down in the world.  I can’t decide where I stand on this film. Bits of it look cool, bits of it look incredibly camp (not usually a problem, but I’m not sure this film knows whether it’s taking itself seriously or not).  Reynolds has the potential to be really annoying too.  Jury’s out on this one, I probably wont see it in the cinema but I might catch it on DVD.  I’m still more excited about the upcoming Deadpool movie.

The final trailer I want to talk about just looked fricking awesome.  I’ve been hearing good things about Super 8 recently but somehow it’s managed to stay under my radar. Not much to say other than this looks wicked.

Happy New Year!

Did anyone see where 2010 went? I appear to have missed it.

This is the second new year’s post I’ve written, which must mean my blog has somehow made it to two years old. Wow, wasn’t expecting that.

At the start of this year I was anxiously waiting on an interview to find out what I was going to be doing for the rest of my life.  I’ve now survived my first term at med school and am only 3 months away from my fourth opera with my much missed music society.   Things are going pretty good for the blog too.  We made it past 100,000 hits, 150 posts and 800 comments.  Not bad going for the poorly typed ramblings of someone who doesn’t really know what they are talking about.

I haven’t made it to the cinema as much as I would like this year (as usual), but highlights have included Iron Man 2, Sherlock Holmes and the almighty Avatar. I am now the proud owner of a DVD of Inception, meaning I can finally catch up with the rest of the universe, and I managed to watch Toy Story 3 over the holidays, which was brilliant as expected.  I am also now one of the (probably) hundreds of people who (thanks to the DVD) have seen the full alternate opening to Iron Man 2 and think Favreau totally missed a trick there.

So what’s coming up in 2011?  Well, as the last post shows, I’m a little bit excited about Thor making it to our screens at last and in May you will find me camping in Leicester Square waiting for the premiere of Pirates 4. Not to mention the new Sherlock film I’ve got to look forward to.  June and July are all about the comic books, with provisional releases dates for X Men: First Class, The Green Lantern and Captain America. It’s gonna be a busy Summer.

Looks like I’m going to have a lot to be writing about.  Thanks again to all of you out there in the blogosphere who take the time to read and comment.  I’ll do my best to keep it worth the visit.

Have a great New Years Eve everyone, see you in 2011.
