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.
Both Ryan Reynolds and Ben Kingsley have a spotty record when it comes to picking quality film projects to work on and now with the new sci-fi flick Self/Less we have a film starring both of them. I am a glass half full sort of guy so I would love to believe that both actors picked this particular film because it looked good as opposed to a quick paycheck. However, after watching the trailer it does show some unfortunate tendencies towards a more throwaway style little thriller than anything that will tax our brains in any meaningful way. But anything that reminds me of the 1980's sci-fi guilty pleasure Freejack starring Emilio Estevez can't be all that bad right? Check out my reaction to the trailer now.
