This is a perfect example of why my hatred for TMI trailers has intensified. And let me say first, that I LOVE TRAILERS! I love being excited about a film and being able to take a peek–my recent fb post of Spielberg’s War Horse trailer proves that–but you know what I am talking about–there are some trailers that pretty much show every funny/cool/action shot the movie has to offer or worse…the moneyshot! The scene you wish you would’ve experience while watching the movie! I hate that! I have begun to close my eyes and cover my ears during certain trailers (Drive is the most recent–and I’m glad I did because I heard they showed a lot of the cool scenes). I want to be enticed, not be forced to see a short summary of the entire PLOT!
Well, obviously now you know what my problem was with Dream House. I knew all the twists. I knew all the surprises. Except the surprise that this was directed by Jim Sheridan who, I guess, should stick with Irish stories. Unfortunately, the weak execution of what could have been a cool idea creates a forgettable film–mainly because it did not know what it wanted to be…psychological thriller? Ghost story? It’s a shame because it was strongly acted. Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts are all doing solid work–but they do not have much to work with.
So, here is the trailer–if you wanna watch it and not bother with paying to see it. But if you don’t and have never seen this trailer, you might just enjoy the movie. 🙂
