Trailer of the Hour: Inherent Vice

Tough week for trailers this week- BECAUSE THERE WERE SO MANY GREAT ONES. InterstellarTak3n, American Sniper, etc. It was hard to choose which one to write about. I could do five of these posts today and still have more to write. But we’ve all got work to do, so I’ll go with the movie that will likely remain under the radar for mainstream audiences. Paul Thomas Anderson directed this movie, based on a book by Thomas Pynchon, who is apparently a “big deal”. I’ve never read any of his books, but I’ve seen PTA movies, so how else could I feel but excited before watching this trailer? After watching it, , I’m convince this is the best trailer of the year, for several reasons. 1) Joaquin Phoenix’s mutton chops. 2) The deadpan humor mixed with pratfalls, reminiscent of the Coen brothers in Lebowski form. 3) Josh Brolin yelling “Moto pancaku” over and over, my new catchphrase. 4) The incredible cast. 5) Sam Cooke’s “Wonderful”, which should be included in all trailers from now on.
