Movie Previews=Love

I adore movie previews. I think I could sit through about an hour's worth. In fact, not too long ago I went with a few girlfriends to see Bride Wars, and the geniuses at Carmike started the movie super late, so they just skipped the previews. Totally, completely. Skipped. Them. I wanted a refund.

I am a total nerd when it comes to previews. (Okay, I'm really just a total nerd. But.) I take it very seriously. I don't like to forget about movies I want to see, so I make mental notes during preview time, and then I totally go home and make a list. With release dates. Not kidding. Sometimes I troll Fandango or Carmike for future movies and their releases too.

Anyway, I recently found Trailer Addict online, and I am now madly, deeply in love. (Am I a late-bloomer? Do you all know about this site?) I've just spent the last 32 minutes blissfully planning my next few movie dates.

A few on my list:

1. Ghosts of Girlfriends Past (Matthew AND Jen? Come on.)
2. The Proposal (I kind of like Sandra Bullock. I kind of love Ryan Reynolds.)
3. Taken (I need a manly dude to volunteer for this one. I'm a screamer.)
4. Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince (Can. Not. Wait.)

Shouldn't you finish reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince first?

In college I was obsessed with some music in the trailer for the Wings of the Dove. It took me a couple of years to find out that it was from the movie Henry V. There are websites that tell you what music is used in movie trailers.

Ghosts looks like a good one. I saw the preview this weekend. Hate. Sandra. Bullock.
