Love the new “Dundee” movie trailer… creative marketing genius too!!!

I’m not watching the Superbowl at all tonight but I did happen to catch the new “Dundee” movie trailer. It’s interesting ’cause after this Superbowl ad, people thought they were tricked into thinking this isn’t a real Dundee movie but an Australian tourism ad. When you go to the Dundee movie site, it takes you to an Australian tourism site instead.


So what’s going on here? Is this a real Dundee movie or not? Yes, it absolutely is. It’s funny that so many people got tricked into thinking this isn’t a real Dundee movie when IT IS! This is the 4th installment of the series and the funny part about all this, that these trailers have sparked people wanting the return of Crocodile Dundee when this is exactly it!

Paul Hogan reprises his role as Michael J. “Crocodile” Dundee or better known as Mick ’cause as you can see Mick Dundee makes a cameo appearance in this trailer. This trailer is Dundee 4. It’s just a movie about tourism.

That’s what the first two Dundee movies were about… tourism in Australia pretty much. In the first Dundee movie, Sue goes to Australia to find Mick so she can write this story on him and then she decides to bring him to NYC. I fuckin’ love the first Dundee movie. The first one will always be a classic. The 2nd one was pretty good but I didn’t like the third one, though.

Once again, THIS IS the new Dundee film with Paul Hogan coming back… this is just very smart marketing. Trying to get a buzz going about this film and attract more attention. How much will Paul Hogan be in this new film? Will he have just a cameo or will he be in through the whole film? We’ll have to wait and see.

Of course Paul Hogan is coming back to the new Dundee film. I could have sworn a long while back Paul was talking about bringing back another Dundee film and this is it. Paul is the executive producer of the new Dundee movie.

The new Dundee movie is looking good so far and I’m looking forward to seeing it.


Film Review: Your Highness

Starring: Danny McBride, James Franco, Natalie Portman, Zoey Deschanel

Directed by: David Gordon Green

So I decided to go to the movies today. I was hoping to see the film, “Hanna” but it wasn’t playing in my theater I was going to. So I ended up seeing the comedy, “Your Highness”.

Here is my review:

Plot/Synopsis: Fabious (James Franco) is about ready to get married to Belladonna (Deschanel), suddenly she is kidnapped by the evil wizard named, Leezar. Fabious teams up with Prince Thadeous (McBride) to go on a quest to rescue Fabious’s soon to be wife. Along the way, they meet up with Isabel (Natalie Portman), who is a warrior princess and she helps them in their adventure. Thadeous ends up falling in love with Isabel.

I saw this movie because I figure it would be nice to see a comedy for once. It’s a comedy spoofing off the Middle Ages. The same makers who made, “The Pineapple Express” film which I never saw yet. Back to “Your Highness”, this film has gotten mixed reviews by critics and movie fans. Did they see the same movie that I did?

I thought it was a very good comedy. It was brilliant. There were a few scenes where I couldn’t help myself but throw my head back and burst out laughing. If you dig movies with a lot of rude and crude humor, you would like this one. The one complaint I’ve seen from other people about this film is the “swearing”. I see no problem with swearing in movies. I never found swearing offensive. Swearing is not for everyone, I just never saw anything wrong with swearing. I swear all the time myself, it’s how I talk. You heard me in my videoblogs, right? The swearing is what made the movie entertaining. Without it, then the film wouldn’t be getting all this recognition. That’s how you’re supposed to make a “slapstick” comedy

The film is also surprisingly action packed. The action scenes were fun and there were a lot of cool special effects. Why wasn’t the film in 3D? It should have been! I like Danny McBride, he was a good actor in this. Plus, Natalie Portman’s character was bad ass.

I thought this film was very entertaining and I liked it a lot. I would probably buy it on DVD when it comes. There’s a lot of gay jokes in this film, but they are actually pretty funny if you don’t take it seriously. This film did a good job mixing different genres into one: fantasy, medieval, comedy, action, and romance. Do yourself a favor and check it out, soon. It was a fun movie and a laugh riot.

Score for “Your Highness” = **** (4 stars as in “excellent”)
