Trailer Trash Tuesday Theme Song done in the style of “Facts of Life

You take the good, you take the bad , you take them both and there you have the Trailer Trash, the Trailer Trash.

We got ads for indie features and the ones that are playing at the multi-plex, on the Trailer Trash.

When you need to see.  All the great and fun trailers for movies to be.

Then please check out this post I wrote. I’m sure these ads will rock your boat…..  Do do de do do.

Cloud Atlas.       10/26/2012

This trailer has been popping up on a lot of other sites and I had to comment on it here.  I am really impressed with this trailer, and hope the final product can live up to it.   Directors Tom Tykwer, Lana and Andy Wachowski have made a stunning visual feast that my eyes can’t wait to gorge on. I’m not entirely clear on what the story is about.  But it looks like it involves the lives of characters from different time periods and how they all seem to connect.  It has themes that I highly believe in,and hope it will help humanity come closer together.

Life Of Pi.     11/21/2012

When a ship sinks a man becomes trapped out in the middle of the vast ocean where he has to learn to survive.  This is a very beautiful looking trailer and I like director Ang Lee but the story itself does very little to impress me.  This almost looks like “Cast Away” meets “Waterworld“.

Bachlorette.    09/07/2012

This is the other version of “Bridesmaids” but this time it’s with Kirsten Dunst, Rebel Wilson, and Isla Fisher. Both movies will have completely different story lines, but that really doesn’t matter.  Most people will just write this off as being another rip off. Which is a shame because this does look funny and it has a good cast too.  It is hard to not see the similarities between the two comedies.  Especially when they are both raunchy comedies about women at weddings.

The Oranges.    10/05/2012

Your opinion of this movie being good or bad is based solely on your own morals.  The story is about a father who finds out that his best friend and his daughter have begun a relationship.   I don’t have a problem with the subject, I just hate that they are treating the material in such a light, comedic tone.  Older people hooking up with younger people isn’t a big deal, but just the idea of your friend hooking up with one of your kids is a bit creepy to me.

Trailer Hitch –   Magnolia – 1999

Since “Cloud Atlas” was about people  being able to connect with each other throughout time.  I thought  I would take a look back at another movie that explored similar themes.  Paul Thomas Anderson‘s “Magnolia” is one that is still debated about today.  A lot of people really like it while others downright hate it   The movie follows many different characters through out one day in LA, and near the end they will all become connected.  Many great performances from all of  the actors including Julianne Moore, and John C. Reilly, but the stand out performance comes from Tom Cruise.  He plays a self help guru who has a lot of great charisma and confidence at first, but is slowly breaking apart inside.  The pacing and editing of this movie is so well done.  You forget that the running time is over three hours.

Have a great week everyone.   I will see you all next time.
