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... more »

Lethal Weapon 3

What the hell is this? Joe Pesci has never been more annoying and I can already tell Rene Russo isn’t doing these stunts. You know a trailer is bad when you can tell it’s a body double… right? Who cares, by this point in the game these movies generated enough money to pay Mel Gibson’s current legal fees.Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGbAMRvYYq0&feature=player_embedded

Deja Vu

50210225fc3a63ca0b7cb7685d73f567 original

I love you Denzel so this is tough but this is an interesting trailer and it’s not really anyone’s fault – not true, it’s someone’s 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 90’s. Before him there wasn’t much of a voice over presence and now it’s not even the same. Unfortunately it’s 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

Double Impact

Jean Claude Van Damme in all his early fighting glory. It burns my fingers a little write this but… well… it’s 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 actually awesome? 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 breathing… try it.Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8V6jTW3xTQ&feature=player_embedded

Bad Boys 2

F47227c09b6aa3c0bdce76962854befb original

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 they’re doing in this movie that it’s almost insulting.Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AURhd5TCG6U&feature=player_embedded

Ghost Rider

Really? We’re 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 can’t believe Eva Mendez is in this movie.Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1hZNHPVVAQ&feature=player_embedded

Abduction

Lautner wants to be Tom Cruise so bad he's about to jump on a couch. This movie didn’t do so well in the theaters and this trailer didn’t really help much. It looks so ridiculous that I can’t imagine someone whom isn’t a twilight fan seeing it. Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEVkp5Je7m0&feature=player_embedded

The Majestic

03d5d90ae9235416dd9f4527a03bbfb5 original

What happened Jim Carrey? I’ll tell you what happened… 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 did… 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 didn’t help. It’s trying to be an epic period piece so bad that it’s painful. This may be the most dramatic trailer ever.

Wolverine

Um did I just see Wolverine fighting in the Civil War? Yup! Should have kept this out of the trailer because it’s the biggest load of bullshit in the history of X-men trailers.Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPmbGzQaOCs&feature=player_embedded

Bowfinger

Eddie Murphy and Steve Martin look so out of place it’s painful. But the real problem with this trailer is the song “Bang on My Drums” by Todd Rundgren. Cool song for children’s birthday parties, bad song for movie trailers.Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uswr9A3SuOY&feature=player_embedded
