Busy Life… but the Trailers look good!

We’re keeping busy out and about at the Comparative Geeks HQ, although we do have tickets already for Saturday for Wonder Woman… Anyway, haven’t had much time for writing, nor for consuming much media to write about…

Although, we have had time for trailers – and there have been several good looking ones in the last few days!

First, the new movie from Edgar Wright, which just makes me happy on a fundamental level… and then it also looked awesome: Baby Driver.

I’m annoyed that this movie is not currently in my plans for seeing it in theaters, and it’s competing with a number of other good looking movies in July and August!

Next up: one we would totally have done a LitFlix for, Murder on the Orient Express.

That cast! I suppose the proper way to do this is an ensemble cast anyway, but they seem to have pulled that off pretty well. Probably just one we’ll rent, but still looks good!

I think I’ll just link to the red-band trailer for The Hitman’s Bodyguard, but it made me realize that of course Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson needed to make a movie together. I think that this movie makes sense as a result of that.

I guess if I’m linking to movies I’d rather not embed, The Little Hours had us laughing at its debauchery and ridiculousness right up until it said at the end it’s based on The Decameron, when I said oh, of course it is.

And finally, one that looked like an Oscar contender sort of movie, but one that we might actually be interested in seeing (a bit of a rarity): The Mountain Between Us.

Basically, I’m good with more Idris Elba in my life. Hey, we should finish watching Luther

How about you, any trailers catch your fancy lately? Any good finds here? Let me know in the comments below!

Big Game – Ridiculous Looking Movie

One of our favorite movie going experiences ever was Snakes on a Plane.
Not because there was any great cinematic anything in that film, but because it owned the fact that it was utterly ridiculous. Also, we were the only ones in the theatre (a group of us) and we got to interact with the movie more that way.

Well, it looks like Samuel L. Jackson, the BAMF himself, is doing it again. We saw the add for this movie – Big Game – and it just looks ridiculous. But in that great way. And they’ve figured out how the fun works, too – the movie is coming out in theatres, and on iTunes, the same day. Today.

So grab some friends, leave your serious side behind, and check out Big Game this weekend. I know we’re going to try to!

Kingsman/The Secret Service – A LitFlix

Somehow, Kingsman: The Secret Service was still in theaters here this week. To put this in perspective, we’re in a seven-screen town, and this would be the seventh week that it’s been in theaters. And it’s rated R.

That’s impressive. Not going to lie. I had read the comic, in preparation for this LitFlix, but had really just thought I wasn’t going to get a chance to see the movie in theaters. Which was a shame, because I hadn’t really wanted to read the comic…

But it was still out, and I saw it, and as expected it was much more entertaining than the comic. I will try to keep my ranting about the comic to a minimum, and talk a bit about the main theme of the film, and about the main change in the film. Spoilers ahead for the film and comic, but let’s face it – it’s not long for theaters now!
