Super Bowl 50 Movie Spots (Part One)

Now that Super Bowl 50 is out of the way, let's take a closer look at all the wonderful movie trailer spots we got this year. Yes, the movie spots are never as long as we hope they would be during each Super Bowl, but they always seem to push the right buttons regardless. This year, there seemed to not be a bad one in the bunch and this taste of things to come looks pretty close to glorious.

Captain America: Civil War
So its mostly a showdown and a showing of sides, but boy do I get the feels from it! Being a fan of the comic arc Mark Millar wrote back in 2007, I am getting more and more excited for this. Did anybody else see the new and improved Ant-Man suit? Much more sleek looking. Still no look at Spider-Man yet, but they wouldn't put all their eggs in one basket now would they?

10 Cloverfield Lane
I love it when a movie can completely leave itself out of the hype game. So often now, we know an entire outline of a movie year, thanks to the internet. We have trailers and commercials giving away the entire movie before it gets released. Spoilers are everywhere. We are in an age where we learn everything before something gets released, so leave it to J.J. Abrams to keep himself out the spoiler games altogether. I don't know how this will fit into the "Cloverfield" story, if it will at all. What if this will spearhead a bunch of original yet slightly connected films under the Paramount and Bad Robot banner? Will "Cloverfield" be the Twilight Zone of film? We will have to wait and see. Who knows, maybe we will see the Clover Monster again in a little over a month.

Jungle Book
Hearing Bill Murray behind a bear was awesome to finally here. But did anybody else think that this trailer was kind of 3-Dish? I felt like I should have had some 3-D glasses to fully appreciate that teaser, but it was good nonetheless.

Independence Day: Resurgence

I want to be really excited for a sequel to "Independence Day." I have been waiting for a sequel to this ever since I was six and I walking out of my first screening of "Independence Day." It was a movie that blew my little mind at the time, and it has created a special spot in my heart that has been there forever. But I can't help but feel that this just looks like a bigger version of the first movie, and that there will be no creativity or depth to the sequel. If I was still six, I would probably be loosing my mind over this. But as I have grown up, I crave a little more from my movies now. "Independence Day" is still a big, fun movie to me. I hope for the best for this sequel. But I feel I will loose interest quick if this is just more of the same, a retread for the sake of it. Plus, the new alien weapons? Do they look lame to anybody else?

I am having trouble uploading the other spots on this blog, (Thanks, Blogger!) So I will have to discuss the other spots individually. Keep an eye out for the rest!
