trailer break: ‘Shorts’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

If it’s Robert Rodriguez, it’s sure to feature tons of wacky greenscreen stuff: kids bouncing off pillows the size of planets to escape Day-glo monsters or somesuch. If Rodriguez can whip it on his Mac, he can slap a goofy kid into it and call it a movie.

James Spader as the transforming bad guy, though… that could be mildly amusing.

Since when do little kids make Scarface references? Who lets their gradeschooler watch that movie?

Shorts opens in the U.S. and the U.K. on August 21.

More to the point: since when did Scarface references become funny? And, honestly, kids don’t have to see Scarface to reference it; every movie with a big gun does the same “joke”, so they’ve seen that line (at this point) more often than we have.

What’s truly weird is that it’s the SECOND kids film to make that reference in memory. Aliens in the Attic made the same reference. My girlfriend and I saw both films trailers back to back and were a bit staggered.
