Trailer Time!

I went to see Transformers 2 today.  I really don’t have much to say about that.  It wasn’t bad, it wasn’t the best thing to happen to me in my life either.  Somewhere in the middle.  Oh, but the effects were pretty stunning.  I just like the zwoom-zwoom lightsaber-eque noises the Decpticons make when they move.

Right now, I want to talk about the trailers.  We’ll start from the beginning.

Trailer #1: Aliens in the Attic.  It seems like a pretty doofy movie.  (Yeah, I just made up that word.)  Mostly, I was excited to see Carter Jenkins in the movie.  He’s had a lot of guest spots on some TV shows, but he will always be Miles Barnett from Surface to me.  I loved that show, but it was canceled after the first season.  The gist of it… newly discovered sea species are causing lots of problems when they start messing up with the ocean.  It was awesome, and it’s gone… and now Miles is trapped in a church in North Carolina as the coast floods and gigantic sea creatures swin around him.  You don’t really care, so next trailer.

Trailer #2: 2012.  This looked like a pretty awesome movie.  I pretty much adore Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow,  and since it’s all Roland Emmerich, I think it’s safe to say 2012 will be good.  Just a side note, Liam James, the little boy who plays the young Sean Spencer in Psych is in this.

Trailer #3: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.  It’s the grand finale!  What kind of Harry Potter fan would I be if I hadn’t already seen every version whether it be American or Japanese released?  I’d be a lousy one, so of course I’ve seen this trailer several times on my computer and listened to the PotterCast crew dissect it several times.  But, it finally hit me today as I was watching the trailer on the big screen.  There’s a new Harry Potter movie coming out in 12 days!  Brand new!  All new!  New new!  I am so excited for this movie now.  This might be the most excited for a movie I’ve ever gotten, actually.  I might manage to ignore the fact that the Death Eaters poop black smoke when they apparate and that Slughorn doesn’t have a walrus mustache.  I might just enjoy the movie as a movie and not as a sucky film version of an awesome book.  Maybe it’s because HBP is my least favorite Harry Potter book…


Random stuff

Random thing number 1: Taylor Lautner aka Sharkboy aka Jacob Black, plays the son of the guy in My Own Worse Enemy, a fairly new TV series on NBC.  I just watched the first episode today, it was pretty interesting.  And of course when, I saw Taylor I shouted… “Sharkboy!”  I’ve never seen that movie though.

2: Movies I want to see: The Secret Life of Bees, The Kite Runner, James Bond: Quantum of Solace (11/14), Twilight (11/21), The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (12/25), X-Men Origins: Wolverine (5/1), Angels and Demons (8/15), Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (7/17), Temeraire (2009??), The Time Traveler’s Wife (???).  And apparently, The Time Traveler’s Wife was supposed to be released this summer, but now it’s release date is unknown.  Egads!  (Eric Bana as Henry and Rachel McAdams as Clare).  Also, you should know that Temeraire is being directed by Peter Jackson, well, it will be, once they start filming and all casting and all….

3: Hugh Dancy is extremely good looking, this I already knew.  But, I forget about him sometimes.  The last movie I saw him was in The Jane Austen Book Club and he was absolutely adorable as Grigg.  Dancy is very talented and flexible in his roles.  Just so you know.

4: Dragonfruit Vitamin Water smells like fancy cafés.  I have no idea why or how, it just does.  Basically, what happened is I decided to take a whiff of my friend’s bottle of dragonfruit Vitamin Water and the first thing that came to mind was fancy cafés. It was honestly, almost like a lightbulb moment.  I can’t even explain why this is what it smells like.
