With some of the most anticipated summer movies already behind us, I couldn't help but look ahead to what else is in store for the big screen. I was most interested in what was yet to come in the next few months, but when I saw that the first trailer for Marley & Me had been released (even though the movie isn't out until December), I rushed to play it.
While I never read the book because I didn't want to bawl my head off, I had been excited about the movie. Until I saw this...
Are you kidding me? That was perhaps the most annoying trailer ever. Don't even make a trailer if it's going to be that lame! Yikes... my expectations have been drastically lowered for this movie...
... As they have been for The Happening. When I first saw a poster for the latest M. Night Shyamalan effort, I was all excited because I have loved all of his movies to date--yes, all of them. But I don't think I'm going to enjoy this one, if I even see it in the theater. He seems to be way too proud of the fact that it's his first R-rated film, and that is bad news to me. The reason I've liked this other movies is because they revolve more around psychological suspense and imagining awful things that are not shown on-screen. So all an R rating means to me is that there will be a lot of gross blood and guts shown, which I am not into at all. Plus, it simply doesn't look scary. Judge for yourself:
It's opening this Friday (the 13th, hee hee), so if any of you go see it, let me know what you think.
Also opening this weekend is The Incredible Hulk, which, solely because of my love for Ed Norton, I know I'll end up seeing. The good news is that the trailer is decent, though I think Liv Tyler as his love interest was really poor casting.
It will be at least a few weeks before I can get out to see the Hulk, though, so if the reviews rip it to shreds, I may have to skip it.
What I really want to know, however, is if any of you out there actually saw Don't Mess with the Zohan?
I figured it would either be really, really, REALLY bad, or hilarious. Inquiring minds want to know!
