Tremendous Trailer Trash Tuesday: Fall Film Fest 2

PulpTrailerTrash

 

Ok let’s get this party started with part two of films I want to check out this fall.  If you have not seen part one of this feature feel free to check it out right here.  Went with some more action packed films with this second installment.  I’m going to have to do at least one more of these fall previews to fit in all the films I am interested in.

 

 

Machete Kills:  Robert Rodriguez’s second installment in his proposed Machete trilogy will be blowing up stuff at a theater near you shortly.  The first installment was an over the top ridiculously silly, violent homage to B-action films and this sequel looks to be even more insane.  Fans of Rodriguez’s style are looking forward to this film and the majority of folks are going to hate this movie.  I plan on checking it out as I see a scene with Mel Gibson wearing a cape.  Expect outrage about violence and sexuality in films when Machete Kills opens on October 11th.

 

 

The Monuments Men:  Written and Directed by Mr. Suave George Clooney, this film is an adaptation of Robert M. Edsel’s true account of a group of art historians and museum curators during WW2.  The group goes behind enemy lines in attempt to save precious art treasures before the Nazis get their filthy paws on them.   Apparently when George gives you a call to be in his movie you don’t say no.  Just look at this amazing cast, George Clooney, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, John Goodman and Bill Murray.   As a history buff, I am pretty excited about checking this one out on December 18th.

 

Carrie:  Chole Graze Moretz and Julianne Moore star in this remake of the Stephen King novel.  Glad to see they are going all in with an R rating on this film and not pulling any punches.  Could this finally be a frightening horror film at a theater?  Or will this film end up being a poor imitation of the original film?  At the very least it has to be better than that made for TV remake from about ten years ago.  Find out and judge for yourself on October 18th.

 

 

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug: Haters gonna hate on this film.  Complaints abounded about the first film, ranging from it was too long, to it did not adhere to the canon strictly enough, and the always popular Jackson should not have made three films.   Personally, I enjoyed the first installment, it was an immersive three hours of fantasy entertainment.  Is it as good as the LOTR?  That is sort of like comparing apples and oranges as anyone who has read the source material is aware.  I will be checking out this film when it hits theaters on December 13th.  As an added bonus I plan on seeing it at the luxury theater so I can recline in a leather chair and have a waitress bring me a few pints.

 

So are you planning on checking any of these films out and are you on The Hobbit hate wagon?  Wow I still have nine more films on my list that I did not get to discuss this week.  Looks like we will have another feature on fall films I want to check out coming your way next week.  Till then enjoy these two great pics.

    I think Monuments Men looks like it could be pretty decent. I really didn’t like the first Machete at all, but I’m almost certainly going to be dragged out to the sequel. Hopefully it’s better, but we’ll see. But of these films, I’m probably looking forward to Carrie the most, if solely for Chloe Moretz. She’s impressed the hell out of me in every movie I’ve seen her in so far, so I’ll pretty much see anything she’s in anymore.

    Also, I kind of NEED those golden books, lol. :P

    • Adam August 20, 2013, 11:41 am

      Chris I would totally buy those Little Golden Books if they were available. Chole Moretz has been a fine actress in everything I have seen her in

    Hi Adam: I saw a documentary on the real people who tried to protect art during WWII. This looks like a fact based so likely fact changing account. Still I’ll see it and Carrie as well. The latter for pure fun.

    • Adam August 20, 2013, 11:43 am

      Mark I think I hear Clooney saying the film is like 80% factual, they sort of combined some folks, changed the timeline up a bit and made some events happen to different characters. I really don’t mind it being “fact based” as long as they are clear about things up front. Unlike say Lincoln.

  • Mark Dore August 20, 2013, 3:47 pm

    Being clear up front as fact based like Lincoln or history changing like U571 the Americanized fictionalized redo of Days Boot. If one watches U571 you would erroneously think the U.S. first broke the German Uboat enigma scrabbled codes. Yes they did decode some only after Canadian expat Allan Turing and the British Colossus team deciphered the ciphers way before. Turing died a broken man for being an out day man unheard OC at that time. Sadly times haven’t changed that much in the world as much as we would think. End of lecture:)

    Darn spell check – out Gay not day man.

    I can’t wait for Monuments Men! It’s like Inglorious Basterds had sex with Ocean’s 11. So awesome.

    • Adam August 21, 2013, 8:20 am

      Nick I hope they put that quote on the promotional materials. “It’s like Inglorious Basterds had sex with Ocean’s 11.”

    Of all of these, the Hobbit’s the one I’ve seen. Yeah, yeah, I’m one of those people. I enjoyed it. It wasn’t as good as his LOTR series. He was trying a bit too hard to make what is really a kid’s book into an adult experience. It was entertaining and well done, but it lost the spirit of the original. I got the reasons he did what he did and I’ll go see whatever else he makes, but maybe he could tone it down a few notches. That would help.

    • Adam August 21, 2013, 8:22 am

      I agree with that sentiment Marilyn, strangely many folks that had issues with the film did not feel it was adult enough.

  • Evan Crean August 21, 2013, 4:56 am

    I am a huge Rodriguez fan, so I am beyond excited for another Machete film. I’m also looking forward to Monumental Men because I think Clooney is a fantastic director and The Hobbit of course since the first one was such a blast. Carrie I could care less about. Those golden books are amazing. Speaking of the Cornetto trilogy, keep a look out on my site this week for an interview I did with Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright and Nick Frost about The World’s End.

  • Kim @ Tranquil Dreams August 21, 2013, 6:34 am

    *GASP* Golden Books! The ones I own (Rudoph) aren’t as cool as these!
    I’m in to go see Carrie surprisingly.
    I’m not a hater or anything for The Hobbit but I didn’t go see the first one so I’m probably not going to see the 2nd one. Just not as psyched about it.

    • Adam August 21, 2013, 8:25 am

      Kim I really wish they would make those little golden books. I would totally buy them.

  • Marilyn Armstrong August 21, 2013, 8:25 am

    I’m betting those who thought it not adult enough didn’t read the book! Or read it so long ago, they’ve forgotten it. The Hobbit is so different than LOTR … aside from a continuation of characters and being set in the same universe, they are entirely different.

    • Adam August 21, 2013, 8:27 am

      Exactly, the tone of The Hobbit is very different than that of LOTR, I almost wish they had made a Hobbit film first.

  • Marilyn Armstrong August 21, 2013, 8:30 am

    He should have. But I loved LOTR and it’s hard to regret it. For any reason.

    • Adam August 21, 2013, 8:36 am

      You know what you are right so strike my last statement, lol. Pretty sure we would not have any Hobbit film if it was not for those wonderful LOTR films. Have you had a chance to check out the extended Blu-ray editions? So much extra amazing footage. Very glad that Santa got those for the misses last Christmas. :-)

  • Marilyn Armstrong August 21, 2013, 9:07 am

    I bought the extended versions, but haven’t actually watched them. They are very long and we never seem to have enough free space to watch them. Maybe come winter, when we are snowed in and have cabin fever :-)

    • Adam August 21, 2013, 9:20 am

      Well maybe when it starts snowing ;-)

      • Adam August 21, 2013, 9:38 am

        I sort of miss that just a wee bit moving to the West Coast, no more snowed in days.

  • Joe Sikes August 26, 2013, 6:10 pm

    Hey Adam,
    Looks like a couple of must sees maybe here. Cloontang’s flick looks interesting and from what I saw in Confessions of a Dangerous Mind he seems to be a pretty damn good director but what CAN’T he do, right. Of course The Hobbit films are always a must see no matter how many movies they chop one book into and Machete can’t be half bad although I wasn’t exactly bowled over by the first Machete but any movie with the old ultraviolence, to me, is worth a watch. But can I say, NO MORE CARRIE MOVIES!!! Looking forward to the next trailer trash and yes, nice pick of sig weav:)

    • Adam August 27, 2013, 10:40 am

      Yeah she has nice lava lamp.
