Rather than review each individual trailer I thought I would do a block list.
I recently purchased a nice collection of trailers from a fellow collector and it really is a collection in its own right. Had I not have had any trailers at all this would have been a turbo boost start to any collection.
The image of each one is first class, the on screen picture is pin sharp on all of them and the colours jump out of the screen at you, many being Derann releases and a some from other companies including Indi 8. Each one is packed with action which is the usual case with trailers, and a fair number of them are like mini digests of the movie.
Getting decent screen shots is not always easy as everything moves so quickly from scene to scene but hopefully you will get the idea. These really don’t do the trailers any justice, I will add more to the thread as I view them, and dependent if the thread gets any interest.
We all know the job of a trailer, or preview, is to entice you to go and see it, quite often I’ve found the trailers a better viewing than the film itself, the one example I can give you from these is Superman returns, (2006). After seeing this trailer, and with Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor, (I think he’s a very good actor), I thought I must make the effort to see the film. We watched it on the telly and I was quite disappointed. Like many of the marvel CGI ridden crap of today, it is drawn out and probably around 40 minutes longer than it needed to be with all the padding. I was glad not to have paid to see it in the flicks, but the trailer here is one of the best.
The list acquired is,
Derann fantasy trailer reel, scope Pirates Of the Caribbean, The Haunted Mansion, Hulk.
Lethal Weapon 2, scope
Chicago & Matrix Reloaded scope
Die Hard With a Vengeance
Air Force One, scope
Time after Time
Disney’s Mighty Joe Young 'scope
also in the pack is an excellent little 50ft reel packed with the following items,
Two Odeon daysets, one for “Intermission”, one for an ad to buy a drink in the Odeon bar and a really good animated Christmas message, “Happy holidays” from National Amusements. Not one I’ve ever seen advertised so I have no idea who would have released it. And this one ends with the Queens and the national anthem.
As already said, these images are quite poor to what you see on screen, for any of you who have any of Derann’s low fade ad reels, you’ll know how good the quality is of the trailers.
