Trial By Trailer: Including….Black Mirror: Season 5

Is this good?
Will this be good?
Every movie trailer answers or challenges those 2 questions. The ham-fisted rebuttal comes swiftly however: no you don’t need to always see a movie to know it’s tank.

Do you really need to sit through a Michael Bay Transformers movie to know for sure? Tank is Tank. And Fresh…well Fresh is always Fresh. I’m down like I’m Brown for that.

For the week of May 12-18, 2019 I cover:
Quiet Storm: The Ron Artest Story
Black Mirror: Season 5
Angel Has Fallen

Shall we begin?

Quiet Storm: The Ron Artest Story (May 15, 2019)
Quiet Storm is Showtime’s follow up to The Resurgence: DeMarcus Cousins. Quiet Storm is an outstanding NBA doc from director Johnny Sweet who deftly assembles the surreal threads of Metta World Peace’s life. It will premiere on Showtime during Mental Health Awareness Month on Friday, May 31 at 10 p.m. EST. #SetTheVCR

Sammy Verdict: Seen it already; so good: soul good!

Black Mirror: Season 5 (May 15, 2019)
After Jordan Peele embarrassed himself and wasted our time with his inept and utterly lifeless The Twilight Zone reboot like a superhero Black Mirror returns on June 5 to rescues us from sci-fi anthology mediocrity!

Sammy Verdict: So In!

Angel Has Fallen (May 16)
Angel Has Fallen is a fantastic opportunity for millennials to see Gerard Butler correctly use a payphone. And apparently it is the third installment in the Fallen film series (accurate name): Olympus Has Fallen (2013) and London Has Fallen (2016).

Sammy Verdict: Yeezus this is awful…,maybe on an airplane?! Maybe…I couldn’t even sit through Taken movies.
