My Top 3 Favorite Movie Trailers Right Now

Hey Everyone,

Today, I’m sharing with you my top 3 favorite movie trailers.  I love good and exciting movie trailers and lately I have seen a ton of epic movie trailers.  Award season is coming up soon and I believe you might be seeing at least one of these movies at the Academy Awards or The Golden Globes.  You better check out these trailers if you haven’t seen them. 

Nightcrawler – One of the most under-rated and talented actors, Jake Gyllenhaal, plays Lou Bloom a young man who dreams desperately to have a career in journalism.  Lou becomes fascinated with the undergound world of L.A. freelance crime journalism.  Lou gets crew members together to film fires, murders and havoc happening in the city of L.A.  Soon, Lou begins to become obsessed and loses control.  The movie is directed by Dan Gilory and hits theaters October 17, 2014.

Horns – This movie is absolutely perfect to check out on Halloween.  Daniel Radcliff stars as Ig Perrish who is coping with a peculiar death of his girlfriend.  After a hard night of drinking, Ig awakens one morning to find horns starting to grow from his head.  The horns soon cause, Ig to develop unspeakable powers.  The movie is directed by Alexander Aja and hits select theaters October 31, 2014.

The Fault In Our Stars

The Fault In Our Stars

Ladies and Gentlemen bring your tissues this is sure to be a tear jerker. 

Sixteen-year-old Hazel Grace Lancaster, played by Shailene Woodley, is a smart, sarcastic and quiet teen who is suffering with terminal thyroid cancer that has metastasized to her lungs.  Hazel’s parents believe she is depressed, so her parents force her to attend a cancer patients support group to make friends at a local church.  Augustus played by Ansel Elgort, shows up at the support group and catches Hazel’s attention.  Augustus is also interested in Hazel and they begin to share their personal thoughts, feelings, dreams, and fears.  Soon, the bond of the relationship evolves and we experience a one of a kind love story.  The movie also stars Nat Wolff as Isaac, Laura Dern as Frannie and Sam Trammell as Michael.  The movie was directed by Josh Boone. 

This movie (with the same title) is based on the young adult, best selling book written by Josh Green.  I highly regret not reading the book before seeing the movie.  Shailene gives a spectacular performance, she was born to be a star and this movie makes her shine!   Her character is witty and charming and she makes Hazel come to life and its so believable. 

One of my favorite characters in the movie is Augustus played by Ansel Elgort.  Shailene and Ansel worked together in Divergent where Ansel plays Shailene’s oldest brother, but my goodness, you have to keep your eyes out for this actor.  I fell in love with Augustus and his character was sexy, smart, and very funny.  FYI, he is every girl’s prince charming.  His character with Shailene is just like a fairytale.  Augustus also suffers with cancer in the movie and is so full of hope its incredible, you can see how Hazel becomes a completely new person when she is with him.  The movie has some other great performances like Nat Woldff who plays Isaac, who brings humor to the movie.  As for Hazel’s parents, they are constantly there for her and her mom, played by Laura Dern gives a heart-warming performance. 

Lots of people are calling this movie a very beautiful and sad love story.  I see this movie as a coming of age story.  You experience a first love/crush and love at a young age is fun, memorable, and silly all at the same time.  The characters are believable and you can feel the passion and bond Hazel and Augustus have with each other. 

Do I think this will be nominated for anything, yes!  I believe it will be nominated for best-adapted screenplay.  I don’t have many concerns about the movie, but the one concern I do have is that it does drag on a little.  The movie could have been a slight bit shorter but, I loved it and make sure you bring lots tissues. 

I give this movie a “B+”

A Million Ways To Die In The West

Million Ways To Die In The West

The year is 1882, Seth MacFarlane plays Albert Spark, a sheep farmer who lives with his cold hearted parents.  When Albert loses his girlfriend, Louise played by Amanda Seyfried because he talked his way out of gun - fight.  Louise doesn’t Albert is tough or brave.  Anna played by Charlize Theron is the new girl in the town meets Albert.  She believes she can boost his confidence and can get his girl back.  Anna then trains Albert how to use a gun.  Anna and Albert become friends and very very very friendly.  Clinch Leatherwood played by Liam Neeson, is the movies villain.  He finds out the news someone has been sneaking around with his wife.  He is out to kill the man who is hanging with his wife Anna.  The movie also stars Giovanni Ribisi as Edward, Neil Patrick Harris as Foy, and Sarah Silverman as Ruth. The movie is directed by the films star Seth MacFarlane. 

We are mostly use to seeing Western film as a fun, exciting, and action packed with cowboys and Indians.  This movie does of course have cowboys and Indians but this movie takes on the comedic ways and extricates on the many ways to people died in the west.  Lots of people and critics were hoping this would be the same gem and comedic charm, Ted directed by Seth MacFarlane. 

Does this film have the same charm and wit?  Yes and no.  It’s not quite as good as Ted but you can still have a good time with this movie.  The film’s star, writer, producer, and director, Seth MacFarlane is back in the directors chair once again.  This time he is in front of the camera.  Seth’s as Albert is cute, friendly, and hopeless.  He may start as hopeless but of course he blooms into the films hero.  I did like Seth’s character and watching Seth’s facial expressions reminded me off Ted’s face.  Especially when he smiles.  As for directing, he was pretty good but he pulled some of the similar jokes and scenes when Dennis Dugan directed Grown Ups 2.  Both had lots of poop and penis jokes.  They are better in Seth’s movie than in Grown Ups 2.  There is one scene that did remind me off Grown Ups 2.  In Grown Ups 2 a deer pees on Adam Sandler and in this movie a sheep pees on Seth MacFarlane.  Charlize Theron, as Anna is great.  It was nice to see her in this movie.  The last movie I saw Charlize in was “Snow White and The Huntsman” and I hated it.  Again, it was nice to see her taking a chance on the comedy route.  She might not be as funny as the other characters in the movie.  Her character starts to grow feelings for Seth’s character.  Her character is brave and fearless.  I loved that she was the one who was teaching Seth’s character to boost his confidence. 

My favorite characters in the movie, Edward played by Giovanni Ribisi and Ruth played by Sarah Silverman.  Those two bring the comedy and laughs to the screen.   Edward (Giovanni) plays a very religious young man who is saving himself to have sex when he is married.  Yet his girlfriend is Ruth (Sarah) who wants to save herself for marriage too.  Expect she is the town’s hore (excuse my language).  She is having sexual encounters with the townsmen and is getting paid for it.  She doesn’t realize that she is already having sexual encounters.  When both of their characters are together their scenes and the commentary is hilarious.  Amanda Seyfried, the adorable and sweet heart everyone loves.  I didn’t like her as much in the movie.  If Seth maybe casted Mila Kunis or Emma Stone, I would have loved the character a little bit more.  Even though her character is dumb and silly.  Neil Patrick Harris, once I heard he was casted I was excited.  This is the same role he played in How I Met Your Mother.  I know what you might be thinking, Barney traveled back in time to 1882 and grew a mustache or this is Barney’s great great great great grandfather.  Don’t get me wrong I loved his character.  I didn’t like one scene in the movie involving Amanda and Neil in bed.  It really got me grossed out!  Liam Neeson as Clinch is not a big main character.  He had a small main character.  He wasn’t as funny as I thought he would be and he isn’t in the movie a lot.

I personally think critics are being a little harsh on this movie.  Yet, audiences seem to be enjoying it.  That means they must be excited to see Ted 2

I give this movie a “B-“

Neighbors

Neighbors

You are being transported to a sweet, loving suburban neighborhood with sunny days, green grass, and welcoming neighbors.  Seth Rogen plays Mac Radner and his wife Kelly is played by Rose Byrne.   Together they have a newborn daughter and are trying to adjust to parenthood but the couple learns there is more to life than cuteness and changing diapers.  One day, the couple finds out a college fraternity is moving into the neighborhood and things are about to get wild.  Zac Efron plays Teddy Sanders and Dave Franco plays Pete Regzaolli, and the two are the fraternity leaders of Delta Psi Beta.  Both play upcoming graduates from college and Teddy’s goal, before he graduates, is to make it into the Hall of Fame by throwing a massive end of the year party.  Mac and Kelly meet Teddy and Pete for the first time and they ask them to please keep the noise down.  However, that request really doesn’t work out too well.  Mac and Kelly’s goal is to get the frat boys out of the neighborhood and to make sure their daughter gets the sleep she needs.  The movie also stars Christopher Mintz-Plasse as Scoonir, Jerrod Carmichael as Garf, Lisa Kudrow as Carol Gladstone and Ike Barinholtz as Jimmy Faldt.  Nicholas Stroller is the director of the movie. 

Neighbors is from the same studio that brought you, This Is The End, but did they bring their comedy chops to the big screen again??  Yes, but it’s not as good as, This Is The End.  Neighbors is the type of movie you love to watch over the summer because its a raunchy comedy and we all enjoy going to the movies for that during these long, hot days.  Seth Rogen produced the movie with his good buddy Evan Goldberg.  This is the same type of character Seth normally plays, the goofy, silly, outrageously funny, pot-smoking guy except this time he smokes slightly less pot and plays a Dad.  He didn’t make me laugh as much as when he was in, This Is The End.  When he appeared in scenes with Zac Efron, that was when you get the most laughs in the film.  Zac Efron is the best character in the movie and he proves not to be the innocent Disney boy longer.  Now, he’s grown up!  Seriously, Zac is hilarious and I feel he was made for this role.  He was able to play to the college frat boy and steals the movie.  He has fantastic chemistry with all of the other characters in the film.  Rose Byrne is also hilarious in the film.  The last comedy I remember seeing Rose in was, The Intership, and I hated her in that role.  She had no funny lines in that movie whatsoever.  This time she nails it!  What makes her funny is she turns into this Mama Bear who just wants to get her baby daughter to sleep and make sure she is safe.  When Rose and Seth team up to take down the frat boys she has all the brains.  She is the one who creates a set up and knows what makes the frat boys angry and how to get them in trouble. 

Dave Franco has been in some really fantastic movies in the past 2 years.  His career has exploded.  In this film he has the brains in the fraternity and has wonderful chemistry with Zac in the film and I loved every scene he was in with Zac.  Not many critics are talking about one particular character in the movie, the baby Stella.  Not one, but two babies played Stella, Elise and Zoey Vargas.  They are so adorable!  I didn’t realize they were twins, which makes them double the cuteness.  My least favorite character was Scoonie played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse.  He plays a really dopey character, it actually got to be really annoying and I got tired of watching him.   Once again it’s the same type of character Christopher always plays.  The movie also features some small cameos too, but I won’t spoil any details for you. 

Nicholas Stroller is known for directing The Five Year Engagement and Get Him To The Greek.  Those movies are my least favorite comedies.  I hated Get Him To The Greek.  Nicholas has most definitely improved from his past works but he did great with this movie.  He kept the movie entertaining, moving and funny.  Thumbs up Nicholas!  Brandon Trost did cinematography and I really love this one scene he captured which features Zac Efron walking down a hallway with bright neon lights.  It looks outrageous!  I can’t wait to buy this movie on blu-ray to add to my collection!

I give this movie “B”.
