First let me say to all of you that have chosen to follow this blog of mine a very big thank you. I have been doing this blog now for 3 years and I do love it. But I need to take some time off. I have decided that the month of July I will be taking a break. This break includes this blog, my podcast, Twitter and Facebook. I need to enjoy the short summer we have up in northern Alberta plus I planning a trip to see my mother. So I hope that you will stick around until I return in August.
Thank you all again.

Welcome to The Trailer Park. Today’s featured trailer is from 20th Century Fox. The Martian.
During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney’s safe return. Based on a best-selling novel, and helmed by master director Ridley Scott, THE MARTIAN features a star studded cast that includes Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Donald Glover.
I have to say that from this trailer I may want to go and spend the money at the theater for this one. One of the selling parts for me is that the film is done by Ridley Scott.

Today’s feature short is Gate 128.
Gate 128, a mysterious place, promising salvation from the extinction of the female species, draws two struggling survivors (Rose and Camilo) in a post-apocalyptic world. The last known female on earth, and her protector must finish their dangerous journey past the world outside of Gate 128.
I found this film to be okay and some of the acting was fine. The problem I do have is with the premise of the story. I just have a hard time really believing that with woman becoming extinct that they would be hunted and killed.
