Paddington (2014)


Wow! That was extremely pleasant. I'd been hearing people sing this film's praises for years, I just didn't believe them. I kept thinking back to that trailer which is just the entire "facilities" scene. Who chose that scene to lead with? It's not really that representative of the film as a whole. Were they just hoping to appeal to the lowest common denominator? Probably. It's a shame though. By taking the easy route, you miss out on audience members who might appreciate how sweet the film is. Or miss out on people who prefer more nuanced or absurdist humor. Or people who aren't six-years-olds. Hopefully the sequel doesn't drop the ball. I promise not to judge it by its trailer. I'll trust you guys this time!
