Trailer Park Tuesday

Song Lyric of the Day:

Adrenaline rushing / Through my veins / And I’d say we’re still kickin’ ass

Motley Crue / “Kickstart My Heart

I’ve been on a big movie kick lately (like you hadn’t noticed), so while watching Nothing But Trailers (one of the many reasons I love HDNet) the other day, I was happy to see that there are some pretty interesting movies coming out soon. The ones I’m most looking forward to:

Closing Escrow appears to be a Christopher Guest-esque take on the world of real estate. It’s going to have a limited theatrical release, but HDNet viewers can watch it on August 22.

Exiled is an intense-looking cop/crime drama, almost in the Infernal Affairs vein. Will I love it as much as I love Infernal Affairs? Doubtful, but I’m sure I’ll still enjoy it.

Stardust will kick off my primer on the brilliance that is Neil Gaiman (Rich and Cynthia swear by him). It’s an amazing-looking fantasy movie seemingly starring half of Hollywood (Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Claire Danes, and Sienna Miller to name a few). That reminds me — I need to read American Gods.

The Jane Austen Book Club looks like a high-IQ chick flick — the Mensa equivalent, if you will. At least it’s a chick flick where we know for a fact the characters are all at least literate. And the cast is pretty impressive, too: Maria Bello, Kathy Baker, Emily Blunt, and Amy Brenneman to name a few.

Shoot ‘Em Up looks like a cool, over-the-top action movie. Paul Giamatti as a frustrated hitman? And Clive Owen as a total badass trying to save the beautiful damsel in distress? I am so there.
