TrailerWatch – “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” gives us all the things

I’m going to be as calm, cool, and professional as possible here. BUT OH MY GOD DID YOU SEE THAT? AND THAT? AND THAAAAAAT?

Warner Brothers has thrown down. They’re here to bring us all the Kaiju, and with this trailer they’ve shown us that they’re not playing around. Rodan’s claws coming out of the earth. Mothra getting her biggest baddest wingbeat. Ghidorah’s serpentine necks readying for battle. And, of course, Big G all glowy and amazing.

Yes, there’s bits of Milly Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga, Kyle Chandler, Sally Hawkins and my man Ken Watanabe…but it’s all about the monsterous showdown we’re absolutely gonna see, because WB has tee’d it up for us. I for one welcome our Kaiju overlords.

TrailerWatch: “Avengers: Endgame” delivers a title, a poster, and the goods

“Is this thing on?”

OH MAN I have all the feels with this trailer. Every single one of them. Fear, terror, happiness, joy, heartbreak, hope…Marvel did a damn good job with this one y’all. From Tony Stark in space to Clint Barton looking heartbroken and vengeance-driven to Scott Lang’s sweetly funny end-of-teaser tidbit that helped me cope after everything else I’d seen? Da-yam y’all. Just…yeah. And who else loved that the “A” in Avengers seems to be re-forming from the ashes in the poster and the tail-end of the trailer?

Anyone else betting/hoping that “Miss Potts” will be zooming up to save her beau? And I need to see Clint-as-Ronin really throw down. But right now I need some solace after what I’ve just seen. At least ’til we can all sit down and watch everything. Or maybe I’ll just re-watch the trailer. Again..

Avengers: Endgame hits theaters April 26th, 2019.

Baltimore Screening Pass-palooza: “Bumblebee”!

Oh thank Optimus Prime that this series is getting a spiffy new feel. Because really, the last several (maybe every single one Bay made) were…well, Bay-tastic. Lots of boom, but very little else. Time for some fresh blood, and maybe even some – gasp! – character development and real honest-to-goodness storytelling? I’m seeing hope in Bumblebee, and so I’m sharing passes. Synopsis!

On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken.  When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug.

Ready? Let’s go!
