Trial By Trailer: Including…The Mandalorian

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 October 28-November 1, 2019 I cover:
The Mandalorian
Very Ralph

Shall we begin?

The Mandalorian (October 29)
The Mandalorian: ok now this…THIS is Star Wars I can watch. Use the movies to hook the kids and sell Happy Meals. But man give me some ruckus and droids busting stuff. #TeamRuckus

The Mandalorian is a sobering reminder of what Star Trek coulda been following Voyager.

The studio didn’t hafta waste our time and their resources on Enterprise or Discovery.

They coulda been bold; coulda been a contender.

Hopefully Picard gets that molding franchise back on track.

Sammy Verdict: Ain’t gonna pay for Disney Plus but I’ll watch this.

Very Ralph (October 29)
Very Ralph is the latest HBO documentary (a beleaguered division following the Michael Jackson doc debacle) and this one is about the guy who put those tiny horses on our shirts: a fashion doc!!  Bonus? Look at me classing up the joint! From director Susan Lacy who gave us Jane Fonda in Five Acts. November 12 on HBO!

Sammy Verdict: I’ll watch this…dunno anything about Ralph Lauren.
