For today’s Trailers Part Quatro (number four in Portuguese), we are going to look at some movie trailers of upcoming films. I’ll tell you exactly what I think as to whether I think it’s worth my time, but you never know it could be worth yours. Trailers can be misleading like the one to The Witch, but sometimes they are accurate. Let’s check out some trailers:

Hairmetal Shotgun Zombie Massacre– That is not a typo my friends, that is the name of the film. I love b-movie/low budget horror films that mix in my favorite genre of music and let me tell you I am super excited for this one. It says it’s the bastard child of Evil Dead and Heavy Metal Parking Lot and it looks good from the soundtrack to the film itself. The film even features cameos from heavy metal titans like Slayer’s Tom Araya, Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe, and Morbid Angel’s David Vincent. Check it out for yourself below and check out their Facebook page here:

Sadako Vs Kayako– Are you a fan of The Ring or The Grudge franchises? Then I may have the movie for you right now. Did you ever wonder what it would be like if the ghosts from both films fought each other? The teaser trailer that is out there doesn’t show you much other than what the two ghosts do, but this should be interesting. In theaters June 2016

10 Cloverfield Lane– The first trailer didn’t really tell us much about the film other than the fact that they are in a bomb shelter and John Goodman does not want them to leave. In the second trailer, we find out that she (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) was in a car accident and he supposedly saved her from a chemical disaster of some sort. She starts to question why they are there and it could be that Goodman is the monster. J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) is attached to this film which means my butt will be in a seat seeing this. In theaters March 10, 2016

Pete’s Dragon– On the lighter side of things, we have the new Disney film Pete’s Dragon which is about a boy who claims he was never alone in the woods for the six years he spent out there alone. The film also stars Bryce Dallas Howard and Robert Redford. To be honest, probably not a film I will go to the theaters to watch even though it looks good.

Alice Through The Looking Glass– I have never seen the first film and it was because of the fact that I hated the way Johnny Depp looked and was convinced Tim Burton was ruining classics. Now I may have to give that film a shot just so I know what is going on in this one because it looks visually stunning to say the least. In theaters this summer.

snl40One of the most iconic sketch satirical comedy shows in history celebrated it’s 40TH anniversary earlier tonight (Sunday Night).  Saturday Night Live has done and will continue to do what no other sketch comedy show has done and that is continue to have staying power. So Lorne Michaels, the shows creator and most valued producer got some of the industries greatest cast members past and present as well as past hosts and musical guest together to celebrate the shows 40TH (which technically the show’s first episode aired on October 11, 1975) and celebrate all the things that were great about SNL. Some of those guests included Steve Martin, Dan Aykroyd, Norm MacDonald, John Goodman, Will Forte, Will Ferrell, Jim Carey, Peyton Manning, Derek Jeter, Paul McCartney, Robert DeNiro. Jon Lovitz, Chevy Chase, Eddie Murphy, Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon, Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Jack Nicholson, Martin Short, Maya Rudolf, Taylor, Swift, Betty White, Bradley Cooper, David Spade, Louis CK, Jason Sudeikis, Mike Myers, Jim Belushi, Chris Rock, Joe Piscopo, Melissa McCarthy, Emma Stone, Colin Quinn, Kevin Nealon, Jerry Seinfeld, and so many more showed up on a Sunday evening that just felt magical and reminiscent as they had some sketches during the broadcast as well as several look backs to past great segments in SNL history and some live performances as well.

Then they went through several segments where they looked back at past great musical guests, musical segments featuring the SNL cast which featured awesome live performances from Bill Murray, Adam Sandler as Opera Boy, Joe Piscopo as Frank Sinatra, etc. The legacy of SNL was alive and well this past night, but there were a couple of disappointments for me which were the segment with Eddie Murphy and there was no Chris Kattan. Chris Rock did a better job playing up Eddie Murphy then the whole 30 seconds we got with the man who basically just thanked everyone and the show itself. I don’t remember seeing Chris Kattan who was a vital member of the show’s history in the 90’s. Did I miss him somewhere or did he not show up? I love how everyone was making fun of poor Kayne West who was a musical guest especially during the Wayne’s World segment. One of my favorite musical performances of the night besides seeing Paul Simon play with the Saturday Night Live band and Paul McCartney was hearing Miley Cyrus step up big time playing a blazing cover of Paul Simon’s 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover. Love her or hate her, it was a really good cover in my opinion. My favorite moment of the whole show was getting to see SNL honor all of it’s fallen members because it was so sad to see such great wasted talents like Phil Hartman, Gilda Radner, Danitra Vance, Chris Farley, John Belushi, and so many others. Overall, it was a great night to sit back and remember a show that kept all of us at really late hours to watch some greats perform.
