The Ring vs The Grudge Trailer

I thought The Ring was a classic and pretty creepy movie when it came out back in 2002. Everybody remembers the “You will die in 7 days” thing and the pasty girl comes out of the tv (like I said, the movie came out 14 years ago so you do not have the right to complain). I don’t think I saw the sequel which came out in 2005. I thought The Grudge was a scary movie too when it came out in 2004. Everybody remembers the creepy Japanese boy. Like The Ring, I haven’t seen The Grudge’s sequels (2006, 2009) either. When each series ended, we thought it would be the last we would see of them but now here comes The Ring vs The Grudge. Whether you asked for it or not, we have the girl from The Ring against the boy from The Grudge. At least that’s the impression I got from the trailer which is all in Japanese. I admit that I never really thought of this before I saw this trailer but after watching it, I’m interested in seeing how it turns out. Unfortunately, it will be released in Japan in June and there is no news so far on any North American release date.

Honest Trailers – The Oscars (2016)

Honest trailers have made fun of plenty of movies in the past, speaking the truth about them and bringing up things we may have missed. Past videos have both been insightful and hilarious. It was just a matter of time until they tackled this year’s Oscars and more specifically, the 8 best picture nominees. I just wanted to say that I saw Brooklyn and liked it and Bridge of Spies is an average movie by Spielberg and Hanks standards. I also didn’t realize how many times they said the word “room” in Room. But enough about me, here’s the video below.

Down on Sing Street (Sing Street Trailer)

Don’t you sometimes wish that you had a better childhood? At least I do/did. What triggered these feelings for me was a recent trailer I saw for a film entitled Sing Street. It is about an Irish boy growing up in the 80s named Cosmo (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) tries to escape his family by starting a band and moving to London (as one would do). As one would expect, this is because of a girl. Seeing that this is a British movie, expect a bunch of eccentric characters with the most so far being Brendan (Jack Reynor). The film looks interesting so far with a likeable main character and a decent supporting cast. This also promises to have music from The Cure, A-ha, Duran Duran, The Clash, Hall & Oates, Spandau Ballet and The Jam. Sing Street releases April 15th, 2016.
