Trailer for INHERENT VICE finally arrives
Paul Thomas Anderson’s much anticipated new film has a trailer, and what a trailer it is. Based on the novel by Thomas Pynchon, the film is about an LA detective who investigates the disappearance of his ex-girlfriend, which, judging by the trailer, lead him to an assortment of characters played by Josh Brolin, Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson, Benecio Del Toro (to name a few). 
There’s a lot going on, and for someone who (shamefully) isn’t very familiar with Paul Thomas Anderson films, it still looks quite fun, ridiculous, and something that will attract film-goers. 
Check out the trailer here!
For film fans (and PTA fans), are you looking forward to it?

The First Trailer for the Indie Flick ‘Low Down’ Is Like a Mini ‘Game of Thrones’ Reunion
The main stars of this film are obviously Elle Fanning and John Hawkes. But for ‘Game of Thrones’ fans who have happened on this trailer will be delighted to see Lena Heady (Cersei Lannister), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), and Burn Gorman (Karl Tanner, who is also in Dark Knight Rises but mostly famous for Torchwood) all in one trailer.
The film itself looks interesting enough. A true story about a semi-famous musician who’s daughter loves and resents him at the same time. Looks like a promising indie film, but I’m still distracted by the ‘Game of Thrones’ peeps

BIG EYES Official Trailer Released Today
I never thought I’d say this, but Tim Burton’s new movie stars not Johnny Depp and not Helena Bonham Carter. I, for one, need to be pinched
'Big Eyes' is about artist Margaret Keane (Amy Adams), famed painter whose husband (Christoph Waltz) took credit for her work. Doesn't seem like something Tim Burton would do. Thank god for that.
Check out the trailer here!
What do you guys think? Is there hope for Tim Burton?

What I Learned From Watching ‘Our Idiot Brother’
-The tag line is a lie
-You’re able to find your soul mate by naming your dog after a popular country singer 
-Even in a small role, Hugh Dancy’s presence is always appreciated
-It’s very weird hearing Zooey Deschanel swear
-As much as I love Paul Rudd, it is possible to not love every movie that he does
-But it reminded me how much I love Paul Rudd and Rashida Jones acting together
-Adam Scott will always be Ben Wyatt to me (Parks and Rec)
-Potentially funny and sweet movies can be ruined by…well…not funny stuff
*You can pass this one up. Unless you’re interested in seeing Paul Rudd almost having a threesome

What I Learned From Watching ‘The Crying Game’ (Netflix)

-Jim Broadbent is the best bartender ever
-More people should know who Stephen Rea is
-Hostage situations just usually don’t go that well
-Forest Whittaker does a decent British accent

What I Learned From Watching ‘Fatal Attraction’ (Netflix)
-People don’t really like wearing pants
-Glenn Close is terrifying
-WHITE IS A REALLY IMPORTANT COLOR
-Whenever a family has 2 prominent pets in a film, you know one of them is gonna die
-The appeal of Michael Douglas is still unknown to me
-Apparently there wasn’t much consideration for mental illness in the 80s
-Not the best date night movie. Unless you wanna scare the poop out of your partner, then it’s great
-It’s okay that a husband cheats on his wife, just as long as the person he has an affair with isn’t crazy. But it’s definitely not his fault
-Opera can bring any types of people together
*You can let it rest in your queue for a while
