I’ll make this quick. For any of us who have seen anything from this movie, whether it a clip or the first awful black and white trailer, we know what a really bad movie going experience we are in for.  So, why am I blogging about a movie that will […]

Hours could seem like days. Trailer 3 for the first JJ Abrams Star Trek movie was on of the best action trailers I have ever seen (http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/paramount/startrek/hd/).  It had a perfect music track that felt like a beefed up modern Star Trek score.  And it was from one of my […]

Wanna fight? I think I should change this blog from my Trailer Blog to the Mark Woollen and Associates blog, because I keep finding that most of the trailers that I like so much that I feel the need to blog about come from that trailer house.  Damn, they are […]

Not another peep. Now, I am sure there are many of you out there, like myself, who were very skeptical of this Evil Dead remake.  Being a die hard fan of the original 3, I couldn’t help but loath the fact that they were remaking that indie horror masterpiece. Especially […]

Compare and contrast. Disclaimer:  This trailer is a bit cut off at the start, not sure why, but just be aware. So, I will say that it is a very rare thing that I will blog about 2 different version of what is essentially the same trailer, but in this […]


For the night is dark and full of terrors. For some people, today is Easter Sunday.  But, for me, today is Game of Thrones Season 3 premiere day.  I am not only addicted to the books and the show, but also the promos for the show.  I’m not gonna lie, […]

Sleigh Bells ring. A common theme that I think you will see in these blogs as I write them is my utmost admiration for the trailer house of Mark Woollen and Associates.  The only reason I have not blogged about every trailer they have done since I started blogging is […]

I’m a bit of a softy sometimes. When I used to edit trailers, I always got excited when I had the opportunity to work on big epic movies or TV shows to really put my editing skills to the test.  However, it was editing trailers and TV spots for the […]


Dream a little dream. This trailer opens with a question that is the basis for the journey that this trailer will be taking us on.  Rosario Dawson’s character asks is James McAvoy’s character if he has ever been hypnotized before to which he answers “No, at least not that I […]

We have lift off. Ok, I initially stated that this blog would be only about critiquing and reviewing the trailers and not the films that the trailers are advertising.  But, for this trailer, I need to break that vow, but only slightly.  This is a very effective trailer with insanely […]

A haunting realism at sea. Sometimes a trailer comes along that is so abstract that you can’t help but be mesmerized by it.  That is how I felt about the trailer for Leviathan.  With nothing but the sounds of the fisherman’s sea as its soundtrack and the abstract images above […]

Poetry in three acts. Although I am well aware that this trailer has been out for a few weeks now, the reason that I am choosing The Place Beyond The Pines trailer as my first trailer blog is for two reasons.  The first is that I think it is a […]

A Mission Statement.   All of the trailer blogs that I see around the internet always seem to have one thing in common.  They tend to focus on what they think the movie will be like, as oppose to critiquing the trailer  as a piece of creative media separate from […]
