The Following Preview

Looking for some cheap inspiration lately, i have been found perusing the "Trailers" page of the Apple Website with my brother at all hours of the day. I love film. Maybe even moreso, i love trailers. Trailers are to movies what quotes are to books. You don't have to flip page after page incessantly, mulling over the average to get to the inspiring..but rather, you can get a short, sweet taste of the inspired all at once. Yes yes, i know..you learn to prize the good from experiencing the bad. You enjoy the action scenes of a Hollywood movie (my reference to Hollywood films does not express my approval of such) only after you have endured the inevitable monologues. You pump your fist triumphantly once you reach the climax of a book, but soon forgotten were the hours spent climbing the slow grade of "the rising action", with its occasional plateaus. What I'm basically trying to say is that movie trailers are great, and now in post production is a movie that I was at first skeptial about..but after seeing the trailer, am very anxious to see. Here was a little piece of enjoyment in my little world of trailers this week. It is called "Where the Wild Things Are"..know it?
