The Possibly Good, the Probably Bad and the Definitely Ugly: trailer reviews


The Possibly Good: Joe

Okay, stop laughing at 0:50 when Nicolas Cage says “what keeps me alive is restraint.” Joe could well be the film that reminds everyone that there is still a great actor underneath all the manic energy that generally gets wasted in terrible films.

The Probably Bad: A Million Ways to Die in the West

Okay, so Seth MacFarlane is now a bona-fide filmmaker (of sorts). And he pretty much do whatever he wants (except be a classy Oscar host). He killed off Brian on Family Guy just to shake things up (he brought him back after fans went ballistic). After the success of Ted, the film about the pot-smoking, foul-mouthed teddy bear, he has decided to take satirical aim at the old west. It’s an easy target, and Mel Brooks did this forty years ago in Blazing Saddles. The film looks silly and crude and was no doubt a lot of fun for the cast, including Charlize Theorn., Neil Patrick Harris and Liam Neeson: I’m not sure it’s going to be a pleasant cinema-going experience. But who cares what the critics will think? It will make a ton of money

The Definitely Ugly: Edge of Tomorrow
