Where you're going isn't always as important as how you get there. This week on Trailer Park, it's all about the quest.
Resurrecting the Champ
Josh Hartnett plays a sports writer whose quest for career advancement reaches its peak when he rescues a homeless man (Samuel L. Jackson) who turns out to be a legendary boxer the world thought was dead. Once the story breaks though, something shocking occurs. The trailer doesn't tell us what that something is, but it's certainly captured my imagination. I think this is a prime example of how a preview should work, since it got me interested enough to want to see a movie that I have heard little about. Here's what Christopher Campbell thought.
Margot at the Wedding – In this dramedy Nicole Kidman plays the over protective Margot who wants to stop her sister (Jennifer Jason Leigh) from marrying lovable loser Jack Black. This appears to be a heartfelt and earnest look at family and the quest for love, and it's probably worth a look. Personally, I have a problem taking Jack Black seriously (he was horribly miscast in King Kong), though the guy does make me laugh. I'm thinking this could be the flick that gets him at least some modest props as a dramatic actor. Here's Ryan's take on the trailer, and you can check it out for yourself right here:
