  1. Byer did say he’d change up some things about Suicide Squad, and I’d agree. Personally, it’s not as bad as it was critically. But this is just my opinion, and we’re allowed to have them.

  2. You should make top 10 lists for songs from Godsmack, Halestorm, Killswitch Engage, Post Malone and Shinedown

  3. Do people really think Chris Pratt was woken by accident in Passengers? He was an engineer, and was woken by the ship to fix it. Jennifer Lawrence was like a poet I think? It wouldn’t make sense at all for the ship to wake her up to fix it, but her being woken by a lonely drunk man makes does.

  4. Misleading trailers can be the worst. One time that lead to me wasting 17 dollars on a horrible straight to DVD movie. Looking back on it the straight to DVD thing should have been warning enough but the trailed looked so good 🙁

  5. In Scream, making the trailer feature Drew Barrymore and then making her the opening victim made me think of Psycho where they pretty much do the same with Janet Leigh’s character – make her the focus and then kill her.

  6. For me, one of the worst misleading trailers of all time was the 80s movie Family Business. The trailer makes it look like a darkly humorous crime caper with a grandfather, father, and son pulling off a heist similar to Oceans 11, but instead it’s a depressing tale of a father doing whatever it takes including selling out his own father to get his son out of trouble after things go horribly wrong. I felt like I wasted 2 hours of my life when I saw this awful movie after the brilliant trailer misled me. Here it is, judge for yourself, does this look like a dismal and depressing movie to you???

  7. I actually love misleading trailers because even if they hook you in to see the film, you get an entirely different surprise.
