Some nice moving pictures to accompany those other ones that don't even move or anything. I'll come back to this and write what I like about each one, but it should be self-evident!

Alien




A Serious Man



Attack of the Clones




A Single Man





Benjamin Button



The Fall





Mission Impossible 3




The Two Towers


Cloverfield




The Birds


The Prestige


The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Bloody hell it's nearly been 10 years since I went to watch Attack Of The Clones...

Great picks.

Those old style trailers are a tad cocky and self-congratulatory aren't they.

The first Pink Panther is actually really boring, it's the sequel where they get rid of all the other characters and stick with Peter Sellers where it turns into total genius.
This scene made me laugh so hard when I first saw it (someone's added a laugh track and subtitles to it on YouTube but anyway) -

Also, this amazing kick -

That's what I love about the old trailers, pure unadulterated hucksterism. More comedies should sell themselves that way.

I enjoyed the original Pink Panther, don't remember the sequel, if I've even seen it.

Probably the best comedy sequel ever made. Very different movie.

'Foreboding' - A sense of impending evil or misfortune. Not "badness that's happening right now".

He was referring to prior events though...wasn't he? As in 'everything that led us up to this point was foreboding'. I thought.

"Do you understand the meaning of the word 'foreboding'? As in 'badness that's happening right now'."

Hmm.

I do like the trailer though. Wish the movie lived up to it. Such a missed opportunity.

It's a goodun.

I strongly suggest watching the Alfred Diet Coke ad it offers at the end. Shameless.

Awesome movie, trailer spoils too much. I watched it years ago with no idea what would happen.

Clash of the Titans



Between the scorpion's tail hitting the ground in time to the beat and the tagline "Titans Will Clash" for a movie called Clash of the Titans (which is actually about Olympians clashing) I think this trailer is unbeatable dumb fun and I don't care who knows.
