Three movie in two days: Inglorious Basterds, Hurt Locker and District 9. The previews for IB were a bunch of testoterone-filled brainless action movies. Previews for HL were this summers crop of hipster/indie stuff (Adam, The Cove, It Might Get Loud) and for District 9 tonight I was subjected to no fewer than SEVEN trailers, half of which were horror movies. UGH. I guess I never put much thought before into which movies get which trailers. Based on this, you'd have to think Hurt Locker was the best movie of the three, right?
So I've never hidden my despising of trailers. Give me the title, the director, and about 7 seconds of slideshow of stills from the movie. Taht's all I need. This way they can give me 7 trailers in less than a minute.
I need to start asking at the ticket counter what the actual start time is. do they know that?
