    Well, holy shit, Darren. That trailer is nuts.

    If Get Out doesn't get the Academy to respect horror, this one might do the trick.

    Death Wish

    Plot: "A mild-mannered father is transformed into a killing machine after his family is torn apart by a violent act."

    Trailer: Sway + Back To Black + "A Good Day To Die Hard" Brucey = fun times?

    I mean, I guess?

    Ah, this whole trilogy, man.

    This is the one trilogy, to me, that actually got BETTER with every film. Yeah, they're pretty straightforward with no twists or plot complications, but that doesn't matter. What does matter is that these movies and everything in them just feels right. Characters, scenarios, humor, morals, the endings.

    Especially the ending to this one. Not just the best way to end this movie, but to cap off the entire trilogy. There is ZERO need for a fourth one. Everything feels complete, everybody's gonna be on their own way elsewhere, nothing else needs to be done to enhance it. It's...just right.

    I recently watched a mini-doc on David Fincher's film techniques. One of the scenes that's mentioned is the famous "box" scene. When he filmed Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman, he used a handheld camera as "shakycam" to represent the two losing control of the situation. When he filmed Kevin Spacey, he used a tripod so it would be shot in place to represent him having all the power.

    I had never noticed this before, that genius bastard.
