Because sometimes, all you need is 2 minutes of a movie. (With videos of the trailers.)

I think Burn after Reading is a fantastically funny film the person that put the list together clearly has no sence of humour!
And Quatum of Solace is a facking fatastic film.

Hey, I liked Vantage Point! True, it got slightly repetitive, but that was the entire point. Hello, the movie was named "Vantage Point". What the hell did you expect? But I DID have to agree with Max Payne. I think I`m in love with Mark Wahlberg espescially seeing him on Leno then on SNL, but this was a HUGE let down. Maybe it`s because I just can`t take Mila Kunis seriously after That 70`s show or the actual fact that the movie was an entire flop in all aspects!

"I think Hancock should have been in that list. Seriously, the trailer was good, it had a good concept, then it got all screwed up at the second half."

I second that.

"I was totally expecting Mummy 3, Twilight (heard from friends that its garbage) and James Bond to be on there."

I second Twilight, but I don`t care what anyone says, James Bond Quantum of Solace was bada--.

Mag3: #10 is his last. Weird, I know.

I agreed with the list from the one movie on it I watched: The Happening. What an AWFUL movie.

Why put the #1 at the top?
It gives it all away, at the beginning.

@duffytoler

everyone already knows what happens in ironman,so the trailer doesn`t need to conceal any part of the plot. its more just to tempt people with killer graphics and stuff

I second The Strangers. The trailer freaked me out more than the actual movie.

I am kind of sad that Vantage Point was listed #1, because I still wanted to see it :(. I think I will anyway, but I`ll fast forward through the boring re-tellings.

Max Payne Also?! I still want to see it as well.

Hey...I liked Pineapple Express. A little long, but funny.

The Eye, Indian Jones, and Burn After Reading didn`t look like good movie choices anyway. I fell asleep during IJ.

The Happening wasn`t horrible, but the answer was extremely obvious despite how far fetched it was.

The Happening Acting skills 101
Mark Wahlburgs Friend: Its killed everyone in New York City!!!

Mark Wahlburg in monotone voice: Oh.. gee... Thats terrible

I think The Happening had to be the worst movie ever. My mom picked it out and i still wonder what was going through her head. Seriously i reinact that scene all the time and she just looks at me and says sorry. I would rather watch old mary-kate and ashley movies than The Happeneing

I`m a huge Indiana Jones fan but this movie wasn`t that great. As for pineapple express I was pretty disappointed. I did kind of like The Happening. I guess because I watched it with my brother and me and him always have fun together. I was also kind of surprised that Be Kind Rewind wasn`t there because as played out as that movie was it just wasn`t funny enough.

how come if they smoke pot in a movie it`s a pot head movie, but james bond drinks in his movies and they don`t consider those alcoholic movies?

So I guess its official. I am the only person in the world who actually liked The Happening. I knew about the killer plants/wind thing before I saw it so maybe it was the fact that I thought it would be more stupid than it was that made me kinda like it.

The Happening sucked, I`ll agree with that. M. Night needs to get his crap together and make a sequel to Unbreakable. Although if he could mangle that sequel badly, If he continues the preachy green environmental douchiness.

I didn`t mind Vantage Point but I agree with the rest of the list.
Silly Trailers.

I personally think it`s a stupid list...
because nowadays EVERY trailer is better then the movie.

Seriously, they add things, make it look edgier...and put a spotlight on parts that end up being completely irrelevant to the plot.
