Why Spend Money on a Movie, When You Can Just Watch the Trailer?

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Before we even get started, I’m not going to ask the question. Yes, I could have started this entire thing with a simple question: “Are Movie Trailers Ruining Movies?” The answer is a clear yes. There is no debate. There is a clear and definite answer. So, this is not a “both sides of the argument” kind of article. I am telling you why movie trailers, new and old, are ruining movies. There are so many different kinds of movies at fault. There are the trailers that just give away way too much of the movie, including major plot elements or twists, and even in certain cases, the freaking ending. There are also the trailers that show a movie in a certain light, only to have the movie come across with a different vibe entirely. Continue reading

Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 marks the second installment of the rebooted Spiderman franchise and they were both directed by Marc Webb. There were many who very much disliked the first installment of the new franchise, but I personally loved it. Once again, critics and fans both are split. Some love it and some hate it. Is it because of Andrew Garfield’s performance as PeterParker/Spider-Man? Is it because of the lack of narrative? Or is it because of some other reason? I don’t know. All I can say is what I thought of it. There will be spoilers in this and they are probably spoilers you REALLY don’t want to read unless you’ve seen the movie. Continue reading
