Trailers, Quotes and Stuff

‘Arrow’ 6x10 promo
Oliver is an ass and Felicity is comically insipid.

‘Wormwood’ trailer
This true crime show looks good. The phrase the most effective accident is used.

Best Line:
“Questions about the integrity of the US government.”

‘Ghost Wars’ promo
Syfy have a new show. MeatLoaf, a crystal ball, staring, dead bodies, silly voices, ghosts, maggots, screaming and puking. This looks naff and there is nothing subtle here.

‘Dark Island’ trailer
This 2010 movie rips off ‘Lost’. There is an island, an evil company, a rescue mission, black goo and a smoke monster and knife fights. This looks okay.

Best Line:
“Should never have come here.”

‘Counterpart’ promo
A man in a dull job uncovers a cold war experiment that opened up a passage to a world identical to our own. Why does the other world hate us? What did we do? There is fighting and gunfire. I am interested.

Best Lines:
“I don’t know what we do here.”

“Their other.”

‘McMafia’ promo

‘Ferdinand’ TV spot

Fudge parcel - okay.
Lebanese red wine - STRONG.
Lemon SanPellegrino - nice.
Orange SanPellegrino - okay.

Anyone see ‘Turtle Beach’ (1992)? Or ‘Bee Movie’ (2007) or ‘Mrs Henderson Presents’ (2005) or ‘Oliver!’ (1968) or ‘The BFG’ (1989) or ‘Mr Popper’s Penguins’ (2011)? Or ‘XXX 2: The New Level’ (2005) or ‘The Tuxedo’ (2002) or ‘Watermelon’ (2003) or ‘Cutthroat Island’ (1995) or ‘Mansfield Park’ (1999)? Or ‘Are We There Yet?’ (2005) or ‘The Odd Couple II’ (1998) or ‘84 Charing Cross Road’ (1987)? Or ‘Bugsy Malone’ (1976) or ‘Dances With Wolves’ (1990)? Or ‘Revolutionary Road’ (2008) or ‘Flipper’ (1996)? Or ‘The Unseen’ (1981) or ‘Fade To Black’?

Maybe I should read ‘Backlash’ by Susan Faludi.

I may review ‘Birdman’, ‘The Guard’, ‘Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa’, ‘Horrible Bosses 2’, ‘Pitch Perfect 2’, ‘McMafia’, ’Daddy’s Home’ and ‘Grandpa’s Great Escape’.

“Want my total attention.”

“Pornified normative.”

“They think that’s the way they have to look.”
