I like movie trailers. So sue me.

Marmaduke (Trailer)

leave a comment »

It’s Monday, so let’s start off with a movie that looks weird. Marmaduke is based on a comic strip that I’ve never heard of (probably because, I’ve heard, it was popular in the ‘80s and ‘90s) and I bet most kids haven’t heard of either. It tells the story of the Winslow family who have a dog named Marmaduke, who, according to Wikipedia, “exhibits many characteristics not typically displayed by dogs.” Ho boy. Another Alvin and the Chipmunks-ish film where animals can talk (Owen Wilson does the voice in this one) and do strange things. Tired, tired, tired. It even might almost be like Alvin a little bit, too: Wikipedia says this about the father character, Phil. “Phil loves his dog despite Marmaduke’s antics but, not surprisingly, gets fed up once in a while.” I can hear it now: “Marmaduke. Marmaduke! MAAAARRRRRRRRMAAAAAADUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUKEEE!” Anyway, here’s the trailer.

Marmaduke better be CGI, because he looks too real. This “CGI real-ness” was awesome in Avatar, but not in this film. Also, did you see the way Marmaduke’s mouth moves when he talks? Watch it again (gulp) if you missed it. This was okay in Garfield, but in this movie, honestly, it kinda creeps me out.
