There’s been a lot of hub bub about John Carter and how it will or won’t be better than the books. I haven’t read the books, but from what I can tell by the first full length trailer, it seems I’m missing out. We got a peek at a teaser back in July, and now we finally get to feast our eyes on the full length trailer.
Seems like it’s limited release trailer day here at Reel Goddess HQ. A few of these this week only have limited run release dates, but fear not, a couple of others are wide release. Scuttlebutt is that we’re supposed to see a trailer for The Avengers some time next week so be on the lookout for that. I’ll post it as soon as it’s released. In the meantime, check out this week’s offerings over a nice cup o’ Joe.
I think I mentioned this in my review of Paul, but I’ll say it again. I really hate when comedies show you all the funny bits in the trailer. It happens all the time. I grew up in the 80′s watching teen comedies like Porky’s, Better Off Dead, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and Weird Science, which happens to be one of my favorites. Raunchy humor and tasteless jokes set a good foundation for the teen comedy. At least back then they did. Even as an adult I still appreciate this sub-genre and wish there were more good ones out there. American Pie got it right where so many others have failed. It’s a shame, because sometimes we all need a hearty laugh.
