Watchin' Trailerz with Doug (Week of February 14)

Hello lovers. I hope this blog post finds you well rested after all the Valentine's Day coitus. What did I do? Funny you should ask -- I watched the most romantic movie on earth: My Bloody Valentine. Just kidding! I watched that last Halloween with Patrick and JB (and our respective lady friends). Very scary. VERY erotic. For reals, I watched A Single Man with my wife. Science fact: a depressed gay British university professor living in Southern California in 1962 > a dozen roses and a box of chocolate. The more you know!

X-Men: First Class
Release date: June 3, 2011

Last week, on F This Movie!'s Twitter feed, I called the X-Men: First Class trailer, "Dotally dawesome," and I still think it looks pretty neat! This is the first time I've been excited about an X-Men movie since 2003's X2. Don't let me down, First Class! And, BTW, you should really start following our Twitter feed (#shamelessplug) -- you have no excuse NOT to at this point. Do it, tweeps!

Sucker Punch
Release date: March 25, 2011

If your first reaction to this trailer is "WTH?" I wouldn't blame you. This is director (and co-writer) Zack Snyder's first film without source material (he previously directed the Dawn of the Dead remake, 300, Watchmen and Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole[!]), so nothing should hold him back, right? I'm excited about Sucker Punch, much the same way I was excited about the Drive Angry 3D trailer -- I so desperately want the movie to be AWESOME, but can easily see it shitting the bed.

Take Me Home Tonight
Release date: March 4, 2011

I know those songs! Remember the 80s? Ah ... wait, what? What is this thing? Seriously, what IS this THING? And why is Dan Fogler in it? Seriously, that guy needs to stop making movies. He's so loud and desperate and covered in flop sweat ... didn't we learn our lesson after Good Luck Chuck? What lesson? That Dane Cook and Dan Fogler need to be tied to a raft and pushed out to sea. The fact that I even know this guy's name annoys me. Ugh, Take Me Home Tonight!
