Mike’s Favorite Movie Trailers of the Decade (30-21)

While I call movie posters a lost art, trailers are a different beast altogether. They’ve definitely evolved over the years, and in a way, they’re getting better the more time goes on. Trailers 40 years ago were so much different than they are now. The way people sell a film is different now. Posters are just about imagery, but trailers have to show you what you’re in store for without giving away everything. Though, there is some artistry to that as well, since I think we can all agree that a lot of times, you can understand what the entire plot of a movie is gonna be just from a trailer. But once in a while, you get something really nice, where it’s cut real well and it makes you excited for the film without giving too many secrets away.

I track my favorite trailers each year, so now I’m gonna look back over the past decade and see which ones have held up best for me.

Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #111 – “Brown Shoes,” from Sing Street

 

111. “Brown Shoes,” from Sing Street

It’s been a while since we’ve had one of these. I think because pretty much all the songs from this movie are in the top 100. This is just a fun ‘fuck you’ song to the priest at the school and basically to all authority in general. It’s definitely the least memorable song from the film, I’ll give it that. But that does not mean it’s not a very good song. This is just as catchy and just as pleasant to listen to as all the other ones.
