Trial by Trailer: Including…Atypical

Trial by Trailer: Including…Atypical

Sammy Younan

Girth Radio Presents…

Is this good?
Will this be good?
Every movie trailer answers or challenges those 2 questions. The ham-fisted rebuttal comes swiftly, however: no you don’t need to always see a movie to know it’s tank.

Do you really need to sit through a Michael Bay Transformers movie to know for sure? Tank is Tank. And Fresh…well Fresh is always Fresh. I’m down like I’m Brown for that.

For the week of October 14-October 19, 2019 I cover:
Onward
Bombshell
Dolittle
The Turning
Holiday In The Wild
The Man Without Gravity
The Man in the High Castle: Season 4
Arsenio Hall: Smart & Classy
Dollface
Atypical Season 3
Marriage Story
The Outsider

Shall we begin?

Onward (October 15)
Ugh can’t stand most Pixar movies (save Up and Wall-E…that’s it!) so this Weekend at Bernie’s remake is unnecessary and unwelcome. Onward I dunno and don’t care when it comes out…

Sammy Verdict: Pass Gas: onward and upward…I’d rather find a better movie.

Bombshell (October 15)
Much better trailer for Bombshell the second Roger Ailes movie in 2019. Dude’s popular!

I recommend Showtime’s The Loudest Voice over this…it focuses on how Ailes built Fox and built an empire which is far more interesting than TMZ salacious details.

Sammy Verdict: Here’s a Bombshell…I’m Out.

Dolittle (October 15)
Dolittle makes me so glad I do not have children so I don’t hafta pay for this.

Dolittle also makes me sad we get this instead of Sherlock Holmes 3!

The January release date isn’t comforting either.

Sammy Verdict: So many big emotions for “Do-Little” which is what I’ll probably do. Eh…out.

The Turning (October 15)
“To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn), There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn).”

A truth. Here’s another: I’m Turning away from The Turning. (Even if the Stranger Things kid is constantly cranking out the horror and the absurd.)

Sammy Verdict: Maybe on Netflix.

Holiday In The Wild (October 16)
If you thought Falling Inn Love is amazing then you’ll be all over Holiday In The Wild! Netflix’s latest Hallmark Cheddar.

Sammy Verdict: I saw this and threw up in my underwear.

The Man Without Gravity (October 16)
Oh wow…I dig movies with this Amélie tone.

The Man Without Gravity an Italian comedy-drama-fantasy drops November 1st on Netflix. Wait for the animated Batman cameo! So Fresh.

Sammy Verdict: So IN!!

The Man in the High Castle: Season 4 (October 16)
The Nazis…have discovered the multiverse: hope is on the endangered list. The same Nazis running the American empire after successfully defeating the allies. YO!! They’re gonna go Darkseid on EVERYBODY. Wow.

Now that is delicious science-fiction: to quote James Brown “Good God!” The sheer amount of utter ruckus you could unleash with a premise like that…man. #TeamRuckus

The final season of The Man in the High Castle (single tear!) premieres November 15th on Amazon Prime!

Sammy Verdict: So IN!! But a solitary IN! Based on the ratings I’m like the only person still watching this?! So fired. It’s so good!

Arsenio Hall: Smart & Classy (October 17)
Arsenio Hall’s stand up special is…I assume an opening act for Coming to America 2 and later Eddie Murphy’s stand up special. If that happens…

Never really watched much Arsenio stand up back in the day; the show, of course, was Must See TV. I kinda miss it…

Sammy Verdict: IN!! Though last few Netflix comedy specials have been weak…October 29 on Netflix we’ll all see.

Dollface (October 17)
Dollface is Hulu’s latest…tv show? I dunno if I want 10 episodes of this; I’d be up for a simple 90 minute movie. S’fine I don’t think they made this for me!

All episodes of Dollface premiere November 15.

Sammy Verdict: Maybe 1 episode…or 2 we’ll see how this goes.

Atypical Season 3 (October 17)
Oh…wow! A #SetTheVCR Special!!

Atypical returns to Netflix for Season 3 on November 1st. So…soon. Though not soon enough. Beyond Fun.

Sammy Verdict: 100% IN!! This show is better than Netflix’s other hit: Stranger Things.

Marriage Story (October 17)
While Scarlett Johansson’s Boys Don’t Cry haircut is mucho distracting I guess in a weird way Marriage Story is like a sequel to Lost in Translation (which makes sense since she is married to Adam Driver…I’d divorce him too!).

On December 6 on Netflix: Watch Love Die.

Sammy Verdict: While I don’t mind Noah Baumbach not sure if this’ll be good.

The Outsider (October 17)
One of the few Stephen King book to tv adaptations I’ve been looking forward too. That genre is so painful…still haven’t bothered with Tall Grass and Doctor Sleep yeah I dunno.

This is an incredible King book but…how are they gonna solve the Holly character with Mr. Mercedes currently on the air?!

Sammy Verdict: I know what this genre is like but I’m In!!
