Hey everyone, my name is Brian Kinsely, I'll be writing the reviews over at Page to Screen every week for a while, hope you enjoyed the look at Charlie Wilson's War.

Now that the pleasantries are over, let's get down to businss: Quicktime finally put the trailer for top-secret "1-18-08/Cloverfield/The Parasite" movie up. If you saw "Transformers," you saw what I consider to be the easy winner for best trailer of 2007, but one of the finest trailers I've ever seen. I remain skeptical on what the film itself might look like, but the trailer guarenteed that on 1-18-08, I'll be at the movies.

I've been trying to think of what the greatest trailers of all time are. I suppose starting backwards would be a good place to start: I thought last year's best trailer was hands down "Little Children." Agree/Disagree? What are some of your favorite trailers of all time, and in recent years?


The teaser for Kingdom of Heaven was one of the best trailers I can remember, very well cut. Movie not so good. I thought the theatrical trailer for Miami Vice was extremely well made too. And, of course, the Sin City trailer.

Sin City. Most definitely.

Also, the trailer for Pearl Harbor - I don't care what you thought of the finished product - looked like Bay had cranked out the second coming.

Elsewhere, I gotta say the trailer for INdependence Day is - to this day - the only trailer that literally had me screaming "WHAT THE FUCK??" in the theater. I might have said the same for Cloverfield if it had been attached to the print of "Transformers" that I saw. Alas, it was not.

the trailer for little Children was amazing.

I think I saw one of the greatest trailers ever this year...300.

Also, last year's "Jarhead" was sure catchy.

The trailer for Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring blew me away the first time I saw it - the one where the fellowship are crossing over the hilltop one by one.

No matter what you think of the movie, you can't deny that the trailer for the "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" remake was possibly the most amazing thing to have ever been created.
