Trailers, Quotes and Stuff

‘Scream Queens’ season 2 trailer
Deliberately belligerent types loom large. No.

Best Line:
“Oh my gauze.”

‘Star Wars: Rogue One’ trailer
The Death Star blots out the sun, a guy hits Storm Troopers with a stick and beat up looking people talk. Vader lurks. This looks cool with novelty, speed and ingenuity. So is English chick the mother of non-trap baby Rey?

Best Lines:
“I will not kill you.”

“Are you with me?”
“All the way.”

‘Don’t Breathe’ trailer
Three not particularly pleasant jerks break into a blind man’s house. They messed up so he messes them up. This looks great. The house looked like an easy target until they found what was inside.

On ‘Neighbours’: Tyler and Paige tongue in public in front of Father Jack. Fat Terese is smug, how can she afford to buy a hotel? Fat Terese needs to apologise. Are we supposed to see her awfulness as droll? Ben cheats on Xanthe, leaving her trapped with a perv. You’d think the plot would have some logic. Shelia lectures Father Jack on Vatican II. Nobody seems to have a job. Father Jack has deadpan unreadable mute dignity. Why is Drab seen as a pillar of the community? Paige decides to get a job as a boxer. Gary fails to notice Xanthe’s distress. Fat Terese throws herself at Gary. Tyler attacks Father Jack cos he’s trash. Father Jack stares at Tyler with loathing. I feel marked disinterest.

On ‘Hollyoaks’: laughably unlikely things happen. Ryan is DS Thorpe’s nephew and a cop. Tegan encourages Ste in his crap. Where is Ben? Cindy is frozen out. People fight over a pig. Marnie is pernicious. James lurks. Is Mac the father of James or not? There is no morally-conscious thought-leadership here. Does Ryan have very bad intentions? This had no relatable reality. Are Ste and John-Paul still married? True imbecile Ste does he-man emoting. Scott is abysmal.

Awful Alfie thinks Cindy has sexual abandon. Jade lies. Alfie arouses strong negative emotions. Marnie is shameless. Amy is moving back to Hollyoaks. Ste is told what a terrible father he is by Amy when he realises his allegations were fake. Scott and John-Paul and presumably Matthew move into Diego’s van. Is John-Paul still estranged from his clan?

Best Lines:
“He throws tantrums at the cheese counter.”

“Since when did you develop a moral conscience?”

“He didn’t want you either especially after Nathan was born.”
