The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Score : 85/100 Watchable Minutes: 100/116 Trailer Comparison : The trailer makes this movie seem a little more “vroom vroom boom boom” than it actually is. It definitely has its moments, but there are some slower parts. They mesh well together but this trailer could definitely turn off some people from wanting to watch it.  […]

Wonder Woman 1984

Score : 68/100 Watchable Minutes: Wonder Woman 1984 (WW84) goes on for far too long. Out of the 2 hour and 35 minute run time, there’s only maybe about 1 hour and 45 minutes of worthwhile content. The whole opening sequence and much of the middle could have been left out with no real impact […]

Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Score : 91/100 Watchable Minutes: 100/122 Trailer Comparison : The trailer for this movie is difficult to compare to the actual film. It’s got the general framework and teases the romance of the film, but portrays the romance aspect as a bit more coy than the film itself does. It also almost makes you think […]

Twelve Monkeys

Score : 94/100 Watchable Minutes: 129/129 Trailer Comparison : Twelve Monkeys has a super 90’s trailer. It feels grimy and unrepresentative of the actual movie which I guess is a good thing. I would not recommend watching the trailer prior to the movie.  Movie or Film : This one is clearly a movie. There’s no behind […]

The Midnight Sky

Score : 76/100 Watchable Minutes : 90 minutes. There was some fluff to this one and it killed the run time score.  Trailer Comparison : I feel bamboozled. The trailers put out for this movie made it seem like a faster paced thriller in a race against time. It didn’t quite match up with what […]

A Christmas Story

Score : 91/100 Watchable Minutes: 93/93. There aren’t any wasted scenes or lacking areas. The last few minutes have not aged well at all, but it’s very much a product of its time. Definitely would have been left on the cutting room floor if this movie was made today.  Trailer Comparison : I think the […]

Vertigo

Score : 95/100 Watchable Minutes: 108/128 Trailer Comparison : The trailer I saw for Vertigo on IMDb has all the best selling points to the movie wrapped up in it’s two minute run time. There’s nothing bad to say about the trailer other than it’s very much a product of it’s time.  Movie or Film […]

Hot Rod

Score : 88/100 Watchable Minutes: 75/87 Trailer Comparison : The trailer for Hot Rod does the usual comedy trailer thing where they put some of the best jokes in it to get people interested. The thing is, every joke in Hot Rod is hilarious so there’s plenty left to enjoy in the actual movie.  Movie […]

The Terminator

Score : 79/100 Watchable Minutes: 80/107 Trailer Comparison : The trailer for The Terminator is incredibly cheesy. The voice over is hilariously bad but so representative of the time. It gets me in the mindset you have to be in to watch this type of movie. I watched this trailer before and after I watched […]

Mank

Score : 83/100 Watchable Minutes : All of ’em. There isn’t a wasted minute in this movie.  Trailer Comparison : The trailer for Mank is decent. No matter what you think about Netflix originals, they can cut a good trailer that gives you the general vibe of the movie. It doesn’t give away too much and presents […]
