One Man Shouldn't be this Negative - Richees Trailer Round Up

So a lot new trailers dropped recently and I don't know what's wrong with me, but I can't get hyped for any of them. From films I've been looking forward to, to film sequels I have no interest in, here's a quick run down of some of them and what I think.

The Predator Directed by Shane Black, and with an interesting cast, this was one of the films I was looking forward to, up until the trailer came out. Opening with some random child getting his hands on some predator tech and crash landing a space ship, to some rather lackluster humor and action, the trailer doesn't really give anything away, but leaves a lot to be desired. I still have hope for this film, but the trailer has me worried.

Bumblebee In my opinion, the last thing the world needs is another Transformers film, especially not a spin-off prequel. But here we are, where quantity rules over quality. The fact Bumblebee has a beehive in one of his wheel arches just seems so stupid to me. Add in the fact that the girl who finds the transformer isn't completely freaked out by her car turning into a robot is beyond me. Like, okay yep, that's a normal thing. Again, more typical action nonsense with John Cena as the bad marine, I guess this is one film I won't be watching.

Wreck-It Ralph 2 So what did I miss? The Emoji Movie gets shit on, rightfully so, for being a cheap cash grab/feature long advert for apps, but apparently Wreck-It Ralph can do it because it's Disney. Plus, I can't take Sarah Silverman's voice, it grates on my last nerve, hen there's the look at all the franchises Disney own, with Star Wars and Iron Man, then the whole Disney Princesses, seriously this film looks like multiple cheap plugs. The reason the first film worked is because it was great to see our favorite game characters on the big screen, but now as Disney seem to have a film in the cinema every month, they're here referencing themselves to death.

Mortal Engines The next big franchise for Peter Jackson had me super excited when the teaser dropped, then the trailer come out looking like the same old re-hashed revenge shit, just in giant vehicles named after "city's" that devour each other. Again, the fact this is gonna be at least a trilogy is grating. Why can't we get just one good story any more? Why does everything have to be a franchise now? At least Hugo Weaving is in it, he's cool.

Halloween So this film ignores every other film in the series and is a direct sequel to the first Halloween movie. Michael has spent the last forty years in an asylum, while Laurie has been training to kill Michael on his possible escape, then of course his bus crashes and he escapes. The music is brilliant, but everything else just doesn't grab me. The film looks like yet another tedious slasher film that we've all seen before.

Also, while I'm bitching, fuck reaction videos. Honestly, who watches these fake-ass plebs over reacting to film trailers? They have made my life hell trying to put this post together, as tying to find the trailers I want is a nightmare, searching through every moron who wants to act the fool while watching a god damn trailer. FUCK YOU.
