Trailers, Quotes and Stuff

‘Captain America: Civil War’ TV spot
Has no creative component.

‘The Flash’ promo

Best Line:
“You can’t lock up the darkness!”

‘Angie Tribeca’ promo

‘Robinson Crusoe’ TV spot

The Fugitive’ (2000) trailer
In this cancelled TV show remake, a wife is murdered. Her husband is accused and an obsessed detective chases him in a flurry of bad acting. The chase continues and Richard Kimble is running faster than ever. Bad plot decisions are evident.

Best Line:
“I want a baby.”

‘The Last Stand’ promo

‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows’ TV spot

Sour Apple Laffy Taffy - okay.
Grape Laffy Taffy - okay.
Strawberry Laffy Taffy - okay.

On ‘Hollyoaks’: Ste and Harry have wifi in their shed apparently. Harry is awful and whines about a missing essay. Myra is suing Tony so she can have IVF money. John-Paul is still a teacher. What happened to his love of music? Harry is a life-ruiner. Cleo tries to steal money from Myra’s IVF fund which she keeps in a Will&Kate biscuit tin. Tony berates Harry. Ste demands a job in the pub. Myra is awful and Ste coos about having a schoolboy lover. Cleo is stupid. James pervs over Harry. WHY? Cleo is stupid some more. The plotlines are clichéd and unconvincing. James offers Harry 10,000 for sex. Harry accuses Ste of having James perv over him. Harry and Ste have issues. Harry whines about giving stuff up for Ste. As for Ste? He is an arse. John-Paul and Scott seem to be getting together. Harry ignores how he ruined Ste’s relationships with Sinead and John-Paul.

Best Lines:
“Cheesy balls.”

“Put your heads together and talk balls.”

“That isn’t love!”

“After everything I’ve given up for you!”
