Trailer Watch is a first reaction viewing of the featured trailer (by me) where I give some light commentary and opinions on it. Trailers are a big deal, they are the first real impression a movie has on people and can have a huge impact on its success or failure which is why it is important for a studio to cut together the best possible trailer they can. While I do have some expectations or even some insight into many of the film trailers presented here, please take it all with a grain of salt and make your own opinion from what is shown (that is why I insist you see the trailer first each time). Most of all though, kick back and see if you agree with my off the cuff reactions. Watch the trailer and listen to my reaction after the break.
Seth MacFarlane is a difficult guy to love because his heart is always in the right place but his delivery often times leaves a lot to be desired (see A Million Ways to Die in the West). But his freshman feature film Ted hit that desired sweet spot where even if you aren't the biggest fan of his work there was still plenty to like. Now we are on the brink of Ted 2, a sequel that likely didn't exist until that first huge weekend of the first Ted, meaning it is driven by profits more than inspiration. And one look at this trailer proves that Seth is riding in neutral as it has switched out the random vulgar comedy of the first film with what appears to be a courtroom comedy. Yeah, how many comedies do you like that take place in the hilarious halls of a courtroom? Check out my reaction to the trailer now.
