SquareGirl’s Movie Trailer Reviews #5

Because apparently I have lost all inspiration or creativity to write anything else (I blame the weather…it is darn hot here in So. Cal. It must be depleting some brain cells)

Little Miss Sunshine

Hysterical. A must see. A trailer about a dysfunctional family including a teenage son who has voluntarily given up on speaking because of his devotion towards Neitzche, a melancholy Steve Carrell (you know, the guy from the Office and the 40-Year-Old-Virgin) who is depressed over losing the love of his life,who was a graduate student of his and also a male, an overly optimistic motivational speaker played by Greg Kinnear, who has a drug addicted father and a plain-jane (yet adorable in her own way) daughter who has by default, made a place in the “Little Miss Sunshine” pageant many, many miles a way. I literally laughed out loud.

Snakes on a plane

Seriously. This is a movie trailer about snakes. On a plane. This is a movie trailer about Snakes ON a plane. I’m not kidding you. Snakes snaking through the aisles, lunging at passengers…on a plane. Yes, the entire trailer features scary snakes aboard a plane. And no, it’s not a joke (I was suspicious). And for some reason Samuel L. Jackson is in it as apparently playing a Jedi Knight does not actually give one the wisdom and sense one might expect. Warning: This trailer is not for the skeptical of heart.

Spiderman 3

Oooooohhh. We have finally reached the point of the series where the superhero explores his darker side. So in this movie we get a much darker (and I literally mean darker, his suit turns from red and blue to black) Spiderman. There are inferences of betrayal (shots that imply that Mary Jane is gonna kiss that guy who used to be Parker’s BFF and Parker grasping at what appears to be his wedding band floating away from him). Being that I’m a sucker for Superhero trailers, I thought this one was pretty good and would definitely recommend you arrive early to Pirates of The Carribean: Dead Man’s Chest in order to catch it.

Little Miss Sunshine sounds like one I will definitely love to see.

I hope you can write more about your teaching experiences with "your little friends" soon because I always enjoy those!
