Since it’s the 23rd you should all be done with your shopping (hopefully anyway) and settling in for some holiday cheer with family and friends. Or you’re settling in to drink a lot of booze just so you can make it through Christmas dinner with the family. Or maybe you’ll fake sick so you don’t have to go at all and you’ll just sit home and catch up on TV. Whatever the case may be, I see no reason in posting gift ideas. Instead, I’ve got a short, sweet Christmas Goodie Wrap for you to enjoy after you enjoy all that spiked eggnog.
I’ve been reading about Drive for quite some time now. This film has had some great buzz behind it since premiering at the Cannes Film Festival back in May. There have been many words to describe this film and its director Nicolas Winding Refn. Words like “auteur” and “high art” are but a few that I’ve come across. The question is, is this film the sort of high-octane thriller the trailer makes it out to be?
Political thrillers, cheese-ball comedies, historical drama, suspense thrillers, this week has it all. With the exception of an animated or kids film. Sorry about that, maybe next week. I even through in a vintage trailer just for fun. Have to get to the end of the post to find out what it is though. You may now proceed…
This week seems to be a mix of comics and creepy. Oh and a little smidge of action thrown in for good measure. There have been some great trailers coming out in the last couple of weeks. With Comic-Con taking place this weekend I suspect there will be loads of footage to feast on for the next week or so. Until then..onward ho!
Well after the craziness that was WonderCon last weekend, I’m back to my normal routine this weekend. Well, what I consider normal anyway. So here’s your weekly trailer wrap. Luckily there was a little more to choose from this week than there was last week. Let’s get to it.
