FACT: Sometimes I take pleasure in watching trailers on imdb.com and get uber excited for movies that will come out in the next few months. Does that seem like a weird pastime? If so, my husband would agree with you. But I find it very entertaining. Imdb.com is a good way to connect the dots. So and so is in this movie and oh look, she was also in this. That’s where I’ve seen her! What a great filmography this person has! (Nerd alert!)
Anyway, I found some real gems today. Initially, I just wanted to look up Gone Girl because I am currently reading the book. And then I got distracted by all the other trailers. 30 minutes passed, then an hour, and then I thought, I should put this on the blog. Sure, I could be folding laundry or washing the dishes…but…but…it’s the weekend! And it’s a raining! A perfect day for the internet, wouldn’t you say?
One of the trailers I watched had a wonderful surprise….a Mandy Patinkin spotting!
I mean, who doesn’t love Mandy Patinkin? He’s been around forever and he seems like he would be the best grandpa ever! I mainly know him from Criminal Minds (as Jason Gideon) and Homeland (as Saul Berenson). No, we didn’t name our son Gideon because of the Patink but it definitely adds an awesomeness factor! Anyway, I’m getting off track. Here’s the trailer for Zack Braff’s movie, Wish I Was Here.
Looks like a goody, no? I’m a sucker for these indie-esque films. 500 Days of Summer. Lars and the Real Girl. Happythankyoumoreplease. The Way Way Back. These are the movies that make you have feelings. The ones you just HAVE to tell your friends about. Dude, really, watch it, it’s like, top 5. But don’t worry, I’m not just an indie groupie. I like other genres too…stupid comedies (21/22 Jump Streets, Horrible Bosses), sci-fi thrillers (Oblivion, Edge of Tomorrow), action thrillers (Lone Survivor, Mission Impossible(s), Bourne Series), and even chick flicks (The Devil Wears Prada, Something Borrowed, The Notebook, Mean Girls). Seriously, I could go on and on. But I won’t. I’ll just stop here.
PS – If you want a chuckle and like the show New Girl, look up the trailer for Let’s Be Cops. Unless you are at work, offended by foul language, offended by the millennial generation’s taste in comedy, are any of my parents (seriously, this one is not parent friendly!), or have impressionable kids around. It’s funny, but it’s definitely rated R.
