It’s movie trailer season!

1. Thor: Ragnarok – I love the banter between Thor and Hulk/Banner. Everything I’ve seen about this movie looks like fun.

2. Star Trek: Discovery – I’m intrigued enough to want to see more, and it will be nice to have some new television-style Star Trek. We don’t have CBS All Access, but I’m sure it will be available on Blu-ray eventually.

3. Ready Player One – I know a lot of people loved this one, but for some reason, the book just didn’t work for me, and the trailer seems to be following suit. The trailer looks pretty, but it doesn’t grab me.

4. Justice League – I don’t know. DC’s cinematic universe has let me down again and again…but then they did Wonder Woman, and I started to hope again. This looks like it could be fun. Or it could be a mess. I’m withholding judgement for the moment.

Which ones, if any, are you looking forward to?

Definitely all of the above. I'm a huge fan of Ready Player One, and I don't see how it can be made in to one movie, there's just too much material there. It's going to take a huge amount of hacking of the source material, nut unlike Ender's Game. We shall see.

I haven't seen the somewhat new Superman and Bat v Supe movies, and while I really enjoyed Wonder Woman, I don't have much of a feel for the DCU, or would that be DCCU. We shall see how it shapes up.

Thor looks fun, Star Trek looks good, RP1 isn't my thing. I loved Wonder Woman but I am definitely going to be waiting on trusted reviews before spending any money on Justice League. I do like that it seems to be concentrating on not-Batman/Superman, though.

I'm looking forward to all of them, but with varying degrees of excitement.

Thor: Like you, I like the banter between the characters, and I like the split between Bruce Banner/Hulk. I also like it that they seem to have remembered that Thor is actually a god.

Star Trek: I'm just a Star Trek geek. I've watched all of them. This one looks interesting, though the characters weren't emphasized as much as the special effects. Amazon Prime says it is going to stream this, so that's an option if you don't want the new CBS pay channel.

Ready Player One: This looks like they took the "everyone plays immersive video games" but left off the "main character must solve puzzles based on '80s video games", which was the charm of the book. A Spielberg touch: the music in the trailer was the song Willie Wonka sang in the Gene Wilder movie ("Pure Imagination"), "Come with me and you'll be in a world of pure imagination..."

Justice League: After the horrible job of Superman and Batman movies, this one looks very promising -- because no Superman (or is there?) and what looks like minimal Batman. Instead, more Wonder Woman! Aquaman, Flash, Iron Man all look like decent characters. I'll watch.
