TRAILER: Frozen

26 Sep

Even though there are some issues that I personally have with the entire film, you have to admit that the trailer is kind of adorable.

Right?

And now, in case you’re curious, here’s a international cut of a much shorter trailer.

Notice anything different? Anything at all? How about the fact that in the American trailer, you have no idea who the villain could possibly be until Anna proclaims that it’s “her sister” randomly at the end of the trailer, while in the French version, you immediately can tell that the sister, Elsa, has been cursed, and the Anna is on a quest to save her?

You didn’t notice that? Well, hmm. How about the fact that the annoying as hell side character is practically non-existent in the French trailer?

If you’re thinking it’s just the French trailer, fear not! It’s not. All the international trailers are focusing on the fact that  Anna is going on a quest to save the kingdom from what her older sister has done, while the American trailer is all about jokes, side characters, and (what the writers must assume are) witty quips that the characters say throughout the film.

TRAILER: Teen Wolf Season 3

20 May

I did warn that this was a film AND TV blog, right? Did I also warn for the fact that I love me some terrible television shows? No? Well here’s my warning: MTV’s Teen Wolf is terribly fun television, and the season 3 trailer just premiered today.

Now, I can assume what you’re thinking. Why is this amazingly intelligent media critic watching what is reported to be slightly terrible television show?? …Oh you’re not thinking that. Well, I can pretend that you are.

But essentially, why should you watch Teen Wolf and why should you pretend to care about season 3?

Well, the cast is attractive.

Tyler Posey, Tyler Hoechlin, Crystal Reed, Dylan O'Brien, Holland Roden, JR Bourne, Keahu Kahuanui, Ian Bohen, teen wolf, teen wolf season 3, danny, derek hale, peter hale, lydia martin, argent, allison argent, scott mccall, stiles stilinkski, stiles, scott, allison,

In fact, one of them is even went to my school! REPRESENT. (image souce: MTV.com)

However, I watch it when I want to watch a fun show. I mean, there are some problems with some of the dialogue (“Mountain ASH!!!!!!!!!!!”) and there are some plot holes, but generally, it’s a fun show where the women kick ass (sometimes too much and a bit too deadly, but hey, I’m cool with that), and the boys range from adorable to really, really, ridiculously good looking.

I’m looking at you and your stupidly attractive face. (image source: fanpop)

However, if you really want an analysis of the show that isn’t pretty pictures of people, then there are lots of websites out there that will give you this analysis. I mainly am interested in focusing on the new trailer.

I’m assuming you’ve watched the trailer above so you can’t yell spoilers. Seriously. Watch the two minute trailer, then come back to my rambling opinons.

TRAILER: Thor the Dark World

23 Apr

If you know nothing about me, then you should know one thing.

I like me some super hero movies.

And there are many things to say about this recent addition to Marvel – Stage 2, so here I go. Remember – these are my opinions and I can say whatever I want because I’m a college kid with a blog and you’re not. Well, you could be but … that’s not the point.

Let me get one question out of the way before I start. I’ll admit I’m one of those fans who has been watching the films instead of reading the comics, but I’m curious – if evil creatures are blowing up the world, why aren’t the other Avengers helping?

Way to disappear, guys. (image: guardian.co.uk)

I suppose this question could poise for Iron Man 3 and Captain America: Winter Soldier. If they were able to create this super hero team, then why couldn’t someone pop in and help out? I realize time constraints with the actors, and maybe this is addressed in the comics, but I’d like to know! If anyone does know… help a girl out? Continue reading

The Rise (and Fall?) of Young Adult Novels in Film

4 Apr

So after seeing the young adult film The Host, and how Beautiful Creatures have essentially flopped at the box offices, you would believe that the studios would potentially listen to the audiences demands of how we’re sick of terrible scripts based off of books that become terrible movies right?

WRONG!

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is yet another book based on a yong adult female lead novel. Now, I have my own problems with the author (Draco in Leather Pants*, anyone?), but what distresses me  is not that so so so SO many movies are based from novels. It’s not that they leads of these movies are young woman (because…. that’s not an issue. That is a problem. Meaning there are not enough films like this).

But it’s how the studios react to movies like these.
