Our friend Aaron fills in for the honeymooning Cody as we watch the latest trailers for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and Legend with Tom Hardy, plus the Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg comedy Daddy’s Home. We also review Pixar’s Inside Out and talk about What We’re Watching.
In this episode, we check out trailers for Owen Wilson’s new action thriller No Escape, Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart in the comedy Get Hard, and John Travolta in the heist film The Forger. Plus Dustin finally sees The Godfather, Part III and a look at What We’re Watching.
(BK makes reference to The Jinx; at the time we recorded this episode, the last episode had not aired and Robert Durst had not yet been arrested for the murder of Susan Berman. Suffice it to say, it’s worth checking out.)

So after 73 episodes of talking about trailers, we decided it might be a good idea to talk about what we think actually makes a trailer good or bad. Also, the Avengers–though currently disassembled–continue to dominate the movie landscape, with Thor: The Dark World now in theaters and the release of the new trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which we watch in this episode (we’ll get around to the reviewing the former soon). We also check out the latest trailer for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and a trailer for a supposed comedy starring Liev Schreiber called A Perfect Man. Plus we review Richard Linklater’s Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, and Before Midnight, and talk about what we’re watching.
Andy comes bearing gifts (see photos below) as we sit down to watch trailers for Jobs, starring Ashton Kutcher as the Apple founder; the animated The Lego Movie; and Will Ferrell in Anchorman: The Legend Continues. Plus we get all artsy watching a couple of low budget Shane Carruth mind-benders, Primer and Upstream Color (both available on Netflix). And we have our picks of the week.
