Hello, trailer fans! You thought we forgot, didn’t you? DIDN’T YOU? Well, we didn’t, so who’s the caramel-covered aardvark now, hmm? Yes, before we start our next series we’ve got a little drain cleanser. I mean, palate cleanser: the long-awaited follow-up to our Trailer Trash episode. We talked about the trailers; well, now we’ve actually seen the movies! Us? See movies? Wow, we really live out there on the edge, don’t we? Well, tune in and see what we thought of the movies and how well the trailers managed our expectations. And help yourself to some caramel-covered aardvark. Mmmmm, tasty.
Wel . . . wel . . . welcome to fiftieth *hic* amplitude, no,
wait, epishode, episode of Mix, Mork; Moogies.
No, no, wait, I got this: the fiftieth thingy of Maalox, Meringue;
Smoothies. *hic*, shorry, shorry, hang on . . .
Sheriously, I mean, seriously, this is our
fiftieth episode! The big five-oh! And we’ve decided to do something special for
all you loyal, sober listeners: we’re just taking this episode to talk about
the worst movies we can remember seeing.
I mean the real stinkers, the ones that made us, or almost made us, walk
out of the theater (remember theaters? People used to see movies in them, back
in the Long Ago). But of course there’s
no way we could talk about these cinematic crapburgers in a rational state of
mind, so Mike and I took the opportunity, as we were both in the same
geographical location, to . . . um . . . fortify ourselves with a few small
libations of . . . . ok, we got drunk, ok? We knocked back a few, I got more pompous,
Mike somehow got stuck in an English accent.
Yes, these are movies that quite literally drove us to seek solace in sweet,
sweet booze. Pour one out for the fallen
films and join us in our drunken ravings!
Yes, trailers. Such a part of the American driving, and cinematic, experience. These mighty hauling vehicles have been featured in such films as “The Long, Long Trailer” and “Trailer Park Boys,” where they have . . . hm? What’s that? Oh, MOVIE trailers! That’s what we’re talking about! Of course . . . that makes more sense, doesn’t it. Ahem. So this week is a special between-series episode where we examine the released previews for half a dozen of this season’s most anticipated blockbusters. We’ve got movies about rock stars, movies about superheroes (a bunch of those), and more! We’ll discuss the trailers, see if they’ve inspired us to see their respective films, and down the road we’ll have a show where we’ve actually seen all of the movies shown in these previews and we’ll talk about if the trailers delivered, over-promised, or flat-out misled us. Enjoy us, won’t you?
