Watchin' Trailerz with Doug (Week of January 17)

True story: last night, my lovely wife prepared a delicious dinner (pollo and beans!) for me, as I sat on my butt and watched The Daily Show. After we ate, she even did the dishes (jealous?). As she finished, she said, "Dishes are done, man," which immediately made me CRACK the F UP. Why do I know that expression? What shared memory did we just experience? Did she just rewrite our vows? The next few minutes were spent on the 'puter as we searched the quote, and [re]discovered it was from Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead. Here's the link for all you F Heads Trailerphiles out there.

Ah, movies!

Release date: May 6, 2011

Big ups to F Head "Josh" for requesting the underwhelming Thor trailer! This Kenneth Branagh-directed comic book adaptation (and by adaptation, I mean abortion) features an Australian hunk of meat with a pube beard. Also, two thoughts re: Natalie Portman: 1.) stop acting in EVERY movie, and 2.) start focusing on your body. I saw you at the Golden Globes, and you look fat.

A Little Bit of Heaven
Release date: Q1 2011

I'm not a big Kate Hudson fan. She was great in Almost Famous, but I personally find her grating (great/grating). Also, she's pregnant with Muse frontman Matthew Bellamy's baby. This will be her second child, the first of which was with Chris Robinson, frontman for The Black Crowes. Patrick thinks she's creating her own supergroup: Vagina Starship. That's all I have to say about A Little Bit of Heaven.

Release date: On Demand Feb. 25, 2011; In theaters April 1, 2011

This trailer has gotten a lot of buzz this week, and I can see why. I mean, it looks really interesting! A rubber tire named Robert goes around killing people with telekinetic powers. This isn't a joke! It's an hour-and-a-half long movie! Whuuu? Receiving largely negative reviews after its Cannes premiere, this French film is now gaining traction (see what I did there?) among movie hipsters.
