    Hey guys —

    I’m so excited that I now have a clause named after me! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity that MAKES people! And yes, Drew, you’re right — the SBL Clause would apply to “Tammy.” That movie looks hideous.

    Overall, kudos to both of you for the podcast. I enjoyed your perspective on the trailers — how they’re constructed (or how they should have been constructed). Likewise, I agreed with almost everything you said about these trailers. Here are your points breakdowns:

    10 “Hooked on a Feeling” points to Dan for sounding positive about Guardians of the Galaxy. Color me surprised!
    10 Poseidon points to Dan for the comment that “Into the Summer” looks like a 70’s disaster film without O.J.
    10 Caesar points to people who can’t talk about Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. That’s an EXCELLENT trailer.
    10 Goonies points to Drew for pointing out that the digital effects in “Earth to Echo” detract from the “found footage” aspect
    -5 “Officially Old” points to Dan for referring to high-schoolers as “kids”
    -5 “Voice of God” points to Drew for his comment on “Lucy.” You ask, Why Morgan Freeman! and I ask, Why Not Morgan Freeman.
    20 blooper points to the both of you for the outtake at the end. Let’s have more of those!

    I’ll close by bringing this back around to the SBL Clause. We need to invoke it for Ninja Turtles, a film that exists only to make Transformers look good in comparison!
