I don’t watch commercials, only listen to public radio, block web ads, and read very few magazines, so sometimes I miss out on interesting stuff. Tonight I watched a bunch of movie trailers on Apple’s web site for things I probably won’t see in theaters, because I *hate* theaters. Anway, here are my reviews (of the trailers), for whatever they’re worth.
*This Is England*: An “important” movie about a 12 year old skinhead in the 80s, won lots of awards, not something I really want to see.
*Stardust*: A strange fantasy/fairy adventure with Claire Danes as a living star, but its Neil Gaiman so despite my doubts I’ll see it.
*The Brave One*: Jodie Foster as modern day female Bernie Goetz. I read the book and met the jury foreman, not interested in this.
*Into the Wild*: A guy goes on a cross-country journey to Alaska, lots of trials and tribulations. Sean Penn wrote and directed, and he still seems nuts, but it looks really pretty and probably worth seeing.
*Transformers*: Can’t tell from the trailer if this is bad or awful, there look to be a lot of explosions.
*Get Smart*: Steve Carell as Maxwell Smart? Trailer is stupid, but there is potential there. I remember _Get Smart_ rerurns fondly.
*In the Shadow of the Moon*: All the surviving Apollo astronauts talk about their adventures. I eat this stuff up. Doesn’t look as good as _The Right Stuff_, though.
*Margot at the Wedding*: Something about a wedding. Dunno. Sorta reminds me of _Home for the Holidays_?
