I didn’t really care for the first teaser trailer and so I kind of ignored the film in general, however this full length trailer looks pretty good. Could be a new Twister if they play their cards right. The cast is impressive and they look serious about the film is great. The visuals and style of the film looks like it works, still not sure about the found footage aspect but we’ll see. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer, more so if you disagree.
“I’ve studied storms all my life. But this storm is bigger than any storm that has ever been.”
This to my great surprise looks really good! I remember some vague talk of this film but this looks really good, I won’t to see it now. As an example of my high opinion I bumped my already late ‘Lego Movie review’ to my Friday slot because I wanted this review out as close to its trailer release as possible. It feels an awful lot like Attack on Titan plus lord of the flies, and wow that is one nutty combo and I like it. The cloths, the walls, the colour scheme, they all link back to a live action version of Attack on Titan, the more I watch it the more I see it. As for lord of the flies it’s pretty obvious, the group of boys (teens), their rituals and the isolation from society. It’s a male oriented tween film as well which is something new to try out on the big screen. The film also boasts a fantastic group of young actors, all very talented which is nice to see and quite rare in these ‘tween’ films.

“Who put us here? What’s out there?”
Well that’s certainly something, not sure what exactly but yeah. Overall I am liking the look and feel of the characters and this world they’ve built, seems like a well-established set of worlds. I do have a problem with the structure of this trailer, the first half is a minute and a bit of character establishment which I get but really meant the content was just a teaser trailer, slightly disappointed on that front, hoping for more story structure in the next trailer. Another opinion is that past the people who are already on board for this film (me and the nerd minority) I don’t see many people being won over by this trailer; think they needed a stronger sell. I do however love that music at the end. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer, more so if you disagree.
“Oh am sorry. I, I didn’t know how this machine worked” You’ll get it.
Trailers appear to be coming out of the woodwork recently so I thought I would review a few of them all in one post because 1 I am lazy and 2 its Christmas time so I am busy. I am afraid there will be no teaser trailers so don’t look for the Godzilla, Interstellar, or Planet of the Apes in this post, I liked all three but without more content I really can’t pass my judgement’s. Hope you enjoy the mini reviews and I will get back to the full ones after the holidays. Enjoy the reviews and please tell me your initial reactions to these new trailers, more so if you disagree.
Wow was not expecting that, at all. It’s looking very interesting and whilst I have no idea what the final product will deliver I am very interested in this film. Watched the trailer a few times now and my only thought is wow Sony is REALLY going for it! Insane amount of content in this film and there is a lot of stuff I like, and the usual worries I get. We see Rhino, Electro, Green Goblin or Hob Goblin? And easily my favourite scene showing the super tech for the sinister six. Sinister Six! And this is only the trailer for the second film. So yeah I like what I see so far and whether Sony’s strategy of going big or going home works out at least it’s a really big change in the normal formula of superhero films. Come on Webb show us something new. Spiderman, Spiderman does whatever a spider can. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer, more so if you disagree.
“Soon everyone in this city will know how it feels to live in a world without power, without mercy. A world without Spider-Man!”
Forgot this film was actually getting made, big budget Old Testament adaptations are quite rare nowadays. Should make for a fascinating retelling. My knowledge of this story is limited to Sunday school as a child and Evan All Mighty so obviously I had to do a little research. Apparently the story isn’t just a Christian story but also Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Mandaeism and Baha’i Faith have Noah and his arc in their religious texts. Also many other religions originating around the Middle East have some tale of floods, arcs and storing animals on them, so perhaps it has some basis in history. As for the beliefs surrounding it I am not opening that can of worms at all and I am just going to talking about how Noah has an Australian accent. So the trailer has some interesting visuals, all-star cast and water, lots water. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer, more so if you disagree.
“When they come, they will be desperate and they will be many”
Before I start reviewing the trailer I want to say that I know the story arc and how mad it gets, and I was pretty sure Bryan Singer couldn’t handle it. Looking at the trailer I now know he cannot handle it, but he can strip it of most of its parts and drop a steaming pile on a brilliant adaptation opportunity. At this point I wouldn’t even watch this film, hope they show a better trailer or make a better movie. There are some good points to the trailer and I will give my views on both sides of the coin but I have a great deal of disappointment with the way the film looks so far. I really hope come next year that I will eat my own words but it would have to be a different film then advertised. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer, more so if you disagree.
“I don’t want your suffering, I don’t want your future!”
I didn’t really have any thoughts on this film until now. I liked the first film but it wasn’t anything special and the sequel sounded interesting especially with that title (that’s right I read comics) Bucky! Gone to the dark side (sad face). But wow this trailer makes the film look great and I don’t really know that much more than I did before the trailer, which is good (few spoilers). The scope of the film looks pretty massive and after the Avengers that is really needed, whether this scale will help or hinder is too hard to tell but me like. Also listen out for that music because I think its part of the films score and its pretty good, its different than most of the marvel cinematic scores. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer.
“I thought the punishment usually came after the crime” – Politically charged words from Captain America!
Hang on, this doesn’t look awful? The world doesn’t make sense anymore. Making any game adaptation look good is one thing but a racing game? Well that’s a new one. I feared a cheesy Fast and Furious style film but they have clearly gone smarter with a more dramatic film. And whilst the driving, action and visuals look great I have to admit I am loving the music and voice over in this trailer. I know nothing about this but I really want to see it, which is the sign of a great trailer. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer.
“Those who wage war against me will perish”
Holiday = Late Review.
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Sorry it’s just haha oh my. Normally you would see me angry when they remake a classic science fiction film with this darker zero fun seriousness all modern takes do like Total Recall last year. But with this trailer I just can’t stop laughing, it looks bad but really funny bad so I’ll be watching this plane crash. If this trailer is a true representation of the film then we are going to have a lot of fun in February. Changing this review up as well, going to have a What I liked and What I didn’t like Section instead of Top Scenes. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer.
