Movie trailers, otherwise known as: God’s gift to movies before they start. Lets be clear about the fact that movie trailers are awesome. When done correctly it’s essentially a really good FunnyOrDie video – 2 minutes, which should leave you wanting more.
Don’t ask me why but I found myself watching the trailer for Lethal Weapon 3, seriously, don’t ask me why. I watched and thought: That was a bad trailer. The funny part about the trailer is that I remember it, and I remember thinking it was a bad trailer when I saw it as a kid…. That trailer got me thinking….
What the hell is this? Joe Pesci has never been more
annoying and I can already tell Rene Russo isnât doing these stunts. You know a
trailer is bad when you can tell itâs a body doubleâ¦ right?
Who cares, by this point in the game these movies generated
enough money to pay Mel Gibsonâs current legal fees.Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGbAMRvYYq0&feature=player_embedded
I love you Denzel so this is tough but this is an
interesting trailer and itâs not really anyoneâs fault â not true, itâs
someoneâs fault and that someone is the writer of the trailer. There is this
man named Don LaFontaine who passed away in 2008, and everyone has heard him at
some point in their life. LaFontaine is best known for doing the voice over in
movie trailers, in fact he did over 5,000. Thing is, this trailer is cheesy
because of what DL had to say, I think if they just stuck to the music they would
have been okay.
Side note: DL dominated movies in the 90âs. Before him there
wasnât much of a voice over presence and now itâs not even the same.
Unfortunately itâs a tad cheesy at times but I would have paid a million dollar
for him to read me a story. RIP Don LaFontaine.Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khFEdsBEVU0&feature=player_embedded
Jean Claude Van Damme in all his early fighting glory. It
burns my fingers a little write this butâ¦ wellâ¦ itâs like this: The trailer
opens with a close up a man seemingly dancing to generate music from the spurs
on his boots. Also, the trailer proceeds to go on a Van Damme pun session that
should be noted in the Guinness book of World Records. Wait, is this trailer
By the way, this is also the LaFontaine effect. Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xyUqIuwOEzI&feature=player_embedded
Mission to Mars
Stupid trailer worse movie. This had so much going for it.
What makes this trailer bad -The music. If you turn your back and just listen
to the audio of this trailer it sounds like a swashbuckling Pirates of the
Caribbean film that somehow morphs into Darth Vader breathingâ¦ try it.Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8V6jTW3xTQ&feature=player_embedded
Bad Boys 2
I loved Bad Boys part 1 and truth be told I saw part 2 in
theaters. But this trailers is so completely annoying and partially smug. How
is a trailer smug you ask? Easy, these guys are so self aware of what theyâre
doing in this movie that itâs almost insulting.Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AURhd5TCG6U&feature=player_embedded
Really? Weâre supposed to buy Nicholas Cage as a Marvel
character? Okay, lets just say we did by Nick Cage as a Marvel guy, this
trailer is filled with cheesy 1 liners and I canât believe Eva Mendez is in
this movie.Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1hZNHPVVAQ&feature=player_embedded
Lautner wants to be Tom Cruise so bad he's about to jump on a couch.
This movie didnât do so well in the theaters
and this trailer didnât really help much. It looks so ridiculous that I canât
imagine someone whom isnât a twilight fan seeing it. Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEVkp5Je7m0&feature=player_embedded
What happened Jim Carrey? Iâll tell you what happenedâ¦
Carrey was snubbed during awards season for The Truman Show and then Man on the
Moon. He was hell bent on being dramatic so he didâ¦ The Majestic. If memory
serves me correctly, he passed on Phonebooth, which starred Colin Farrell, to
do this movie.
This movie bombed and this trailer didnât help. Itâs trying
to be an epic period piece so bad that itâs painful. This may be the most
dramatic trailer ever. Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHZldxzY1h0&feature=player_embedded
Um did I just see Wolverine fighting in the Civil War? Yup!
Should have kept this out of the trailer because itâs the biggest load of
bullshit in the history of X-men trailers.Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPmbGzQaOCs&feature=player_embedded
Eddie Murphy and Steve Martin look so out of place itâs
painful. But the real problem with this trailer is the song âBang on My Drumsâ
by Todd Rundgren. Cool song for childrenâs birthday parties, bad song for movie
