    I refuse to watch trailers for movies I will definitely see anyway. They don't even care about not spoiling the film anymore, they just want to sell tickets.

    I only ever watch the previews they show in the cinema. I really hate trailers nowadays.

    Been doing this for years, increasingly difficult to avoid though.

    What else did you think trailers were for?

    I'm not saying they shouldn't try to sell tickets, I'm saying they just don't have to give away big portions of the plot to do that. If anything that makes me want to see the film less.

    Haven't posted in here in a while. shifty

    At home - The Fighter, Lost in Translation, No Country for Old Men, Looper, and Reservoir Dogs.

    In cinemas:

    Grand Budapest Hotel - Weird, but also entertaining.
    Captain America 2 - Probably the best Marvel movie after Iron Man.
    Godzilla - Surprisingly thoughtful. Glad that they didn't dumb it down too much.

    Reservoir Dogs is excellent, the tipping speech Mr Pink gives is  clap 

    No Country for Old Men was all build up then nothing.

    That is intentional in No Country for Old Men, the fact that Moss is killed off screen is the biggest part of that.

    I don't mean "nothing" in that that way. I mean it introduced a lot of interesting elements in the plot but it never really ran with any of them, that was probably intentional as well but I was left a disappointed because of it . Maybe I was just expecting it to be a little more like Fargo.

    I felt the same way. It was good, but I wanted a little more out of it.

    Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Truman Show, Trading Places, Tucker and Dale vs Evil, and Caddyshack.

    In cinemas:

    X-Men: Days of Future Past - really good. Possibly the best X-Men movie to date.
    The Fault in Our Stars - I wept. Satisfying adaptation.

    Less of a comedy, more of a drama than In Bruges. I think it's better, but I prefer dramatic cinema more than comedy I think.

    Seven Psychopaths. It was average. The plot felt all over the place and I don't think it was as clever as it tried to be, but it was kind of funny.

    Found Seven Psychopaths very disappointing.  Not least because they killed their best two actors in the first couple of minutes.

    So you didn't download it just for the sake of it?  Thanks for clearing that up.  Smile
