Trailer Parked: R.I.P.D.

(Trailer Parked is a new feature here on RAI.com where I’ll do the same thing everyone does while sitting in a movie theater, sit in judgment of movie trailers. Here goes.)

“R.I.P.D.” is a new comedy-action movie starring Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds, due for release on July 19, 2013.

Quick Synopsis: It’s Dead Men In Black. Or Gunfighter Ghostbusters.

Ryan Reynolds needs to understand we don’t like him in comic book movies, or even in movies that seem like they come from comic books. Or in movies where he basically is interchangeable with Dane Cook. Or in movies, I guess is what I’m saying.

Jeff Bridges seems to be playing the same gunfighter character he’s always done, and Mary-Louise Parker is the dead version of her character from “Red.”

Verdict: Pass. This looks like one I might enjoy on cable for free, but not paying to see it. If Ryan Reynolds is going to kill anyone, it needs to be his agent.

— Reid Kerr laughed at “This Is The End,” but not that much.
