Ethan Hawke has been very busy. A fact that makes me, an eternal fan of great acting talent, a very happy so and so. With more than 5 releases out this year, including the already very well received Boyhood, who can blame me?
A sci-fi thriller from sibling Directors, Michael and Peter Spierig, the premise of Predestination is time travel for the purpose of preventing crimes from taking place. I say the trailer is quite promising. See for yourself:
Did Tom Cruise’s Minority Report (2002) come to mind as this preview played?
The following are three of the best things about Zac Efron’s That Awkward Moment (2014). A story about twenty-something friends living and dating in New York. It’s definitely not a perfect movie – for reasons including, ironically, awkwardness. But these snippets of dialogue are indeed memorable. I’ve even found myself quoting one or two to friends.
1) ‘New York’s charm is that you’re surrounded by things you can’t have’. ‘New York’s charm is it makes you think you can have them’.
Having been there myself and experienced the energy, I can confirm that both statements are true.
2) ‘Jason. You weren’t there for me. On a day when I really, really needed you. And being there for someone when they need you, that’s all relationships are, Jason. That’s all they are’
Delivered whilst perfectly composed and with all pauses mid-sentence only working to make the statement more impactful in the moment – regardless of how simple the idea and words may be.
3) ‘Guys, in High School I was voted as most likely to have the best eyes’
My favourite! This one line makes me giggle every single time.
Part of what makes Christopher Nolan’s Inception (2010) so very good, is Hans Zimmer’s brilliant musical score.
Unfortunately, since the the film’s release, seemingly far lesser movies keep using it. I say ‘seemingly far lesser’ because I can’t actually see myself ever watching any of the offending titles.
I admit, I’m probably too attached to the original film and music, but all the trailers I’ve seen that use the Inception score really don’t look very promising. If they did, I wouldn’t be writing this.
You only have to watch the following Airborne (2012) trailer to see and understand.
Eeewwww indeed! To help get that gross Airborne taste out of your mouth, here are two fantastic Inception trailers…
