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.
The Mission: Impossible films are some of the best and most consistent action films being made and as it so happens are the only thing that anyone will see with Tom Cruise in it anymore. Be that as it may, aside from the low point that was the John Woo directed second film, each successive entry has only gotten better with J.J. Abrams putting his spin on it and then Brad Bird using it as a vehicle to show everyone he is a master at live action as well as animation, but now Christopher McQuarrie is at the helm and I find myself skeptical yet also eager to see what he comes up with. He may not make the best action films out there, but he certainly knows how to stage inventive and entertaining action sequences that stick with you and if I can get a few of those with this new M:I flick, then I will walk away happy at the very least. Check out my reaction to the trailer now.
