Trailer Tuesday

Occasionally a movie is released that appeals to me so much that I must see it immediately.

Back in Green Bay this was as simple as going to a midnight showing, book it, done.

Not so fast here in Jamestown. We have some midnight showings but I am by no means whatsoever a fan of the Twilight or Harry Potter series.

For this year’s fall movie lineup I was thinking more along the lines of Robert Rodriguez’s “Machete” staring Danny Trejo as a Mexican mercenary set up by the U.S. government.

In North Dakota, this movie was showing no where in the entire state when it opened. Now it is in Bismarck and Fargo, so making a trip would be about as significant as a midnight showing in my book.

Plus I don’t think it will ever make it to the silver screen here.

Here’s the trailer:

What else does a man need in a movie? Action, guns, explosions, a corny plot, star studded cast, some foxy dames.

But alas, there is another totally different movie that I would also consider making the drive for.

“The Social Network” which has been on the commercials a lot this past kickoff weekend, was written by my man Aaron Sorkin.

Sorkin was made famous by writing the following cult classic TV shows, “Sports Night,” “West Wing” and “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.” Not to mention the play “A Few Good Men” and the film “Charlie Wilson’s War.”

I have a feeling this film will eventually make it to Jamestown, but as Tom Petty said, “The waiting is the hardest part.”

If it does come to Jamestown it will be after it’s nominated for a slough of Academy Awards, or walks home with some serious hardware.

Here’s the trailer:

FYI, the Vega Choir singing Radiohead’s “Creep” may have sold it.

So readers (at least my two commentators) I want to see a movie in a theater, very soon, what to do?

  1. I believe that “The Social Network” has the potential to be groud breaking, in regards to “Machete” I’m guessing it will be as good as “Desperado”.
