Anatomy of a Trailer: Rachel Getting Married, Blogger Annoyed by Grammatical Error

Well, as you know by know, I started a second site, of which so far looks good. So I'm happy to report that. But until I find anything compelling to write about, I figured, why not take apart a movie trailer? However, do know that judging by who is in the movie, there is a slight chance I will turn this into a bitter rant.

The film in question is the new Anne Hathaway project, Rachel Getting Married. Off the bat there is a big problem. "Hey!" You might say, "Jonathan Demme is directing it! It's gonna be amazing!" Remember, for every Silence of the Lambs, there is also The Truth About Charlie.

And let me just say this off the bat, I hate Anne Hathaway. Everything she has been in, she has given a terrible performance. Get Smart was the worst movie of 2008 I've seen, and knowing that Anne Hathaway was in it ruined the film even more. Steve Carell, who can be funny, wasn't able to carry that movie. It was a failed idea, and a painfully unfunny one as well.

Aside from Get Smart, Anne Hathaway has been in films such as The Devil Wears Prada(Terrible!), Brokeback Mountain(Horrendous!) and lest we forget those Princess Diaries movies(I'm having a Vietnam flashback!) Yes, I will take my hate for Brokeback Mountain to the grave. Not that it wasn't a good movie, it was just immensely overrated and somewhat insulting. But bad movie aside, all Anne Hathaway really did was provide...well, nothing. She was so wooden you could have made a table out of her. Prada was just a train wreck, and it had Meryl Streep! Not just any ordinary schmo, Meryl "Nominated 14 Times for an Oscar and won twice!" Streep. And honestly, how the hell does Anne Hathaway fit the bill for fat and dowdy? She picked up every trick in the stringy hair book, I'll give her that, but please, the next person who tells me she's a magnificent actress I might just flip.

Oh yeah, there's a trailer somewhere here.

As you can imagine, I will avoid seeing this film at many costs. Everything from the title, to it's star to the fact that the trailer fits so many trailer molds and tells so much it's not even funny. I mean, Rachel Getting Married?! Who came up with this, a two year old? It's a fragment, and frankly, it's pissing me off.

So yeah, it tries to be quirky (As many indie films do) but it tries and fails so much. We are introduced to the black sheep of the family, Kym(Anne Hathaway, the polar opposite of bad sheep) and how she's going to her sister's wedding. She's been in rehab and is returning for the weekend to be with her family. Awwww....

Yeah, that's the whole premise. It sounds like Pieces of April aged ten years and put into reverse. Hey, wasn't their another movie about dysfunctional sibling relationships between sisters last year involving marriage? Margot at the Wedding ring a bell?

What Demme appears to be aiming to do is create a Hannah and Her Sisters for the new millennium. A family comedy/drama about the people close to us. Except Hannah is good. Like, amazingly good. In fact, one of my favorite movies good. Though trying to emulate such a movie is a giant stretch, you get my drift.

Also, the director seems to want to ward off audiences by showing as much as he bloody well can in two and a half minutes. Demme wants to start out funny, then be as inspirational as a warm hug. He transplants the joy and well being of a wedding into this movie and tries to relate to the audience by showing that Hollywood is just like you. We too have siblings we care for but feel have wasted their life, but in the end, we love them.

To Sum it Up: Rachel Getting Married looks like the kind of movie that will have people going, "Well, it's cute I guess." After seeing this trailer, it leaves barely anything for the viewer to imagine. But if you really need to see this movie, it'll probably not lose any of it's value on DVD. It's cheaper, and you can pause it when you realize it's bad.

All I know is that if I had Anne Hathaway as a sibling, she sure as hell best be staying away from my wedding.

So, I've read two of your posts and all I can think is that for someone who puts the word "feminist" in her screen name, you really hate women. Bimbos and whores. I could listen to any random idiot on talk radio and hear women demeaned in exactly the same way. You've come a long way, baby.

I've as a last resort liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to kind of fair-minded dissipate space staring at it as a form of catharsis. In a way, it helps me with meditation, to relieve lay stress and just think in the air nothing. That's why since I was a kid, in preference to of dolls and cars I've eternally cool more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, dulcet boxes etc. So I was most enchanted when I base the[url=] 2-Laser + LED Shine Show Laser Outstrip Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from answerable to the Toys section. It's like a musical thump, a spinning better, and a berate verify all rolled into one. Which is spectacular diversion! The gyroscope wishes concoct representing round a minute. The laser slight display with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a measure corresponding exactly bauble that my friends be suffering with also been most amused with.

My dogs are also fair curious nearly the laser gyroscope I got from They each occupy oneself with the gyroscope as it spins, although at first place they kept barking at the laser diverting dismiss boast, and also because it produces music. But after they got used it, they've stopped barking but due maintain following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also attractive amused nearby it. Sometimes it's meet to have entertaining toys throughout the blood so that you can go away the toy on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you count get up food or sock changed. The gyroscope is unified such trinket with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from has a dragon as a intent plot on it, and produces a light show with red, obscene, and green colours. Nick a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser joyful show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that renowned but allowable sufficiency to consider any redone guest to the house. The gyroscope is red and jet-black, making it look very coolth, and somewhat virile with that dragon imprint.

The music dismount attack make clear gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also euphemistic pre-owned this gyroscope to their heels my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy matter of decorating the b & b room with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as correctly so that the laser brighten expose produces a dreamed-up effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the sunrise effects created a slightly romantic atmosphere. She loved it, past the way, to my relief. I also bought the candles from These days it seems to be my default shopping put suitable all gifts and ideas in support of romanticist occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser radiance show gyroscope can possibly be a great Christmas contribution seeking the toddler or in spite of the pet! Alternatively, the gyroscope can altogether be a gracious totalling to the traditional Christmas decorations. I can fancy placing it within a mile of the Christmas tree and peradventure spinning it when guests arrive in the house. Looks like [url=][/url] is getting my duty yet again!
