The plan is to post about trailers once a week but there are so many dang trailers I had to separate them somehow. So here are some TV trailers from this week, including three for Star Trek and one for Snowpiercer. Also, Stranger Things, Mrs. Fletcher, War of the Worlds, and His Dark Materials.
Remember that Snowpiercer series they’re cooking up? Jennifer Connelly has signed on to star in it.
I’m always wary of things I love being adapted these days, but this is good news.
Best of lists are hard. Choosing the films I liked best isn’t hard, but keeping it to a reasonable number and ranking them is. One thing that’s not so much hard as it is annoying: coming up with something to say other than “I loved this and you should watch it”.
I saw a lot of films this year but there are plenty I missed. I didn’t see Birdman, Whiplash, or Mommy, all of which are on many other best of lists for the year (and in the case of Whiplash I can guess it would have made mine) but I also did see Boyhood, Gone Girl, 22 Jump Street, and a host of others that didn’t make my list.
All in all I saw over 75 of the movies released in 2014. Not a huge percentage when you think about it but certainly more than the average person.
So with all that in mind here are my favourite dozen movies from 2014.
Characters have to make choices. The big ones can’t be undone. How do you show this in film? Here’s how Snowpiercer, admittedly a special case, pulled it off. Hint, pretty great. Also, if you haven’t seen Snowpiercer then don’t watch this because it literally spoils the entire movie.
I haven’t had a lot of time this weekend but here are some quick thoughts on two movies you can see this week. There’ll be more detailed analysis in the next episode of the podcast.
It’s that time again folks! After nearly a month without an episode we’re back to talk about all the news that is the news from July and the lead up to Comic Con 2014. We also have _Dawn of the Planet of the Apes_ and _Snowpiercer_ to talk about as well as _A Good Day To Die Hard_ which Simon saw for the first time this month (spoiler alert: he didn’t like it).
Chris Evans leads a revolution on the train holding the last of humanity on a world ruined by a new ice age. Yup, I’m on board (SEE WHAT I DID THERE?)
