The Film Thugs Trailer Park

Going to the movies is a singular experience. You pay too much for something you probably won't like, you buy insanely overpriced food and drinks, you sit next to complete strangers who may or may not have wildly varying ideas about what constitutes acceptable behavior in a theater, and the most you are hoping to get out of the transaction is a pleasurable ninety minutes or so.

But there is so much to love about it. The amazing picture, the incredible sound, the experience of seeing an amazing story unfold right in front of you, and the trailers. Sometimes the trailers are the best part of the entire affair. Quick aside, did you know that they are called "trailers" because they were originally shown after the feature? Well, now you do.

This week we pay tribute to the art form of the movie trailer. We look at the good, the bad, the misleading, the "better than the movie," and all areas in between as we discuss the sometimes maddening world of film trailers.

Also, submit your own "guilty pleasure" films as well as horrible theater going experiences, or your dream programming week at, or at (512) 666-RANT or on Skype at the_film_thugs

We are also in the final week of accepting questions for our "Ask the Film Thugs" show. Send questions about ANYTHIG to Hunter Duesing from The Midnight Movie Cowboys will pick the best questions we receive, record them and send them to us. Every question will be heard for the first time on the show and we will answer completely off the cuff. Questions do not have to be film related. We are unofficial life coaches and are happy to help with anything you need help with.

Check us out on Twitter at @thefilmthugs, on the Facebook, e-mail us at, call us at (512) 666-RANT, or on Skype at the_film_thugs.
