  1. Lord was I disappointed in that movie. such a promising trailer. In fact, you should name the circumstance of a trailer that promises one thing only to have the movie give you something completely different The Independence Day Paradigm.

  2. We would, but we're pretty much fans of the movie (except Mike) so it wouldn't make sense. And, actually, I felt like the movie delivered just what the trailer promised (because the White House blew up). That's the thing about trailers, though -- they create such different expectations in all of us, because we all fill in the blanks of what we're not show differently. You filled in the ID4 trailer with a movie you like much better. I filled it in with Vivica Fox stripping. Success!!

  3. For the "Shock and Awe" thing, TV Tropes calls that the "Funny Aneurysm moment" from a line from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

  4. Wow. Good looking out, Randi -- that site offers a LOT of different terms for what JB was trying to describe. Thanks for posting.

  5. I'm so glad that JB likes Troll Hunter. I first saw it at the Traverse City Film Festival in 2011. It definitely helped to go in with no idea of what to expect, but I came out beaming. I've since shown it to a lot of friends, and it tends to get mixed reviews, but I'll always love it.
