-Ray Liotta is in a crapload of straight-to-DVD movies. I found Breathless, Street Kings 2, The River Murders and Powder Blue today. For one thing, before we got those movies, I had never heard of them. For another thing, that's a bad thing. But come on, this is Ray Liotta we're talking about. He's the guy in Goodfellas. And Goodfellas was awesome. I'm hoping that Killing Them Softly means he's getting back on track, but then again, he is keeping straight-to-DVD movies alive.
Christian Slater (seriously, Christian, I am over seeing you in these films)
Cuba Gooding Jr.
50 Cent (this guy is actually the worst for playing dress-ups)
I should be grateful to these guys, though. People always rent their films, so in a way, they're keeping our video store going.
-Speaking of actors who are in a lot of films, I love how three of Jessica Chastain's films start with T, so I could put them all together on the new to weekly shelf.
-I've been getting especially nostalgic over cleaning shelves lately. Mainly because this year has gone so fast and I'm looking at movies that came out in April and going "how is this off the new release wall?!" But then I realise that April was like, six months ago. Still, I could pick up any movie in that shop and have a certain memory attached to them. Apart from the adult room selection, of course.
-Mind you, The Last Station, which came out on October 20, 2010, is still on the new release wall. Which makes me LOL. It hasn't rented in the past six months, either. But somehow, it just passes by unnoticed. I'm going to have a mini party if it makes it through the next wall change.
-This month's trailer disc is especially annoying. In July (the last time I was cleaning shelves), I had a whole raft of favourite trailers. There was We Need to Talk About Kevin, which I could stare at longingly because of Ezra Miller. Like Crazy was a cute but sad trailer, and I could sing along to the 20 seconds of 'I Can't Help Falling In Love'. I could LOL over the J. Edgar trailer and make fun of it...all by myself. Look...July was just the coolest month for movies, okay? October, however, has a rather dull selection of movies. The only perks are:
-There's a trailer for The Deep Blue Sea, which has Tom Hiddleston in it. And we all know how much I love Hiddles.
-I can always try and impersonate Michael Fassbender saying "big things have small beginnings" at the end of the Prometheus trailer.
And yeah, that's it.
-The downfalls of this month's trailer disc are:
-There's no trailer for The Dark Knight Rises. There should be, because it comes out next month. But instead, they decided to give the obligatory next month slots to Ted and Snow White and the Huntsman.
-I used to think this trailer for Prometheus was really cool, but that beeping noise thing has really got on my nerves, now.
-There's a trailer for That's My Boy. Which features Adam Sandler putting on an extremely annoying voice. Considering I just watched the entire film, that trailer is going to annoy me even more.
-The What to Expect When You're Expecting trailer starts off by saying "having a baby can be a real mother". Oh hahaha, where did you get that pun? 1001 Cool Puns? Just no.
-There's a trailer for Dark Shadows every 45 minutes. That trailer is actually awful.
Well at least I have Lana Del Rey to keep me company.
So there's a page from the diary of your average video store girl. Got any thoughts on trailers, Ray Liotta or other actors playing dress-ups?
