Perhaps I'm just extra bad on the uptake these days but doesn't it feel like Netflix somehow manages to sneak their movies through production without us noticing until they release a trailer for an already finished thing and it's out in a month and you're like WHAT? I DON'T HAVE TO WAIT FOR THAT? That's the thrill I got when they dropped their trailer for Wine Country yesterday -- they managed to gather together SNL queens Maya Rudolph & Tina Fey & Amy Poehler (who directed) & Rachel Dratch & Ana Gasteyer, alongside Paula Pell & Emily Spivey (who wrote) and, uh, Jason Schwartzman...
... (who's looking particularly delicious with that big beard, I might add) for a comedy about some gals drinking wine in the country and I never noticed until this trailer and a date of May 10th (with some theatrical screenings starting two days earlier) were right in front of me? That's nutso! But I like this strategy -- it doesn't feel like we have to wait so long this way. We've got less a month for this and that works for me! Now watch the trailer, goddamit:
"The Crown is well acted but I hate it so much. Maybe it’s just because I think they’re all spoiled pieces of shit. I don’t know... I love Josh but I never made it to his season."
"Jason, PLEASE watch The Crown. I promise you... I can't believe someone like you has not even tried to tune in. Watch the first episode; better yet, the first two episodes."
"The Crown is well made, well acted, but I don’t buy the portrayal of that fucked up family. I watched some of the first season, and I just don’t believe a person like the queen is that relatable in reality. And I don’t feel it’s worth my time to try and empathize with them. Let’s force her to watch numerous episodes of stories of normal people and see how long she lasts."
--- Everybody's got an opinion on The Crown! Mine is just that Josh O'Connor is adorbs... or is that ear-dorbs? Okay I'll stop. Do you watch The Crown? Thoughts?
