What music is being used in this trailer?

There is a hilarious parody of the new Star Wars trailer done in the style of Wes Anderson. Does anyone know what music is being used? All I can tell is that the singing is in French. [more inside]

Give me the best short bursts of horror/VHS/halloween nostalgia you got.

I'm putting together a Halloween marathon party this weekend, with a few horror movies (about evenly split between good and cheesy selections), and lots of video interludes in between that speak to a sense of pre-2000 horror/VHS/halloween nostalgia. I need your help on the interludes. I'm finding it hard to pick the exact vibe I'm looking for, but for examples: [more inside]

Looking for a specific, recent post-apocalypse film

I watched a trailer on Hulu maybe 2-3 months ago for a film whose setup went something like this: A bunch of people come to a dinner party that looks possibly contentious. In the middle of the dinner, some kind of world-altering event occurs. These people now need to survive together. It seemed like the film was more interested in human dynamics than zombies/bandits etc. It looked fairly well produced with a few semi-recognizable b/c list actors. For the life of me, I cannot find the movie or any trace of it. Does it sound familiar to anyone out there?

Seeking space saving techniques for RV living

My husband and I moved into an RV last summer and sold or gave away 80% of our belongings. I am looking for ways to make the most of our space for the 20% we kept. It's not that we're out of room, but I feel like I am not doing this in an optimal fashion. [more inside]

I'm looking for that cheesy inspiring movie trailer music

I am looking for examples for that cheesy "inspirational movie" music that you might see in a Hollywood movie trailer. Usually it accompanies some kind of tagline like, "He didn't know that helping one dog...would send him on the journey...of a lifetime." One example is here at 20 seconds of this trailer. That stirring music that is meant to emotionally manipulate you - can you help me find various versions of it? Thanks.

Trailer brake controller

Hello Metafilterites, I'm trying to buy a small trailer and that requires a brake controller for my truck. Currently it doesn't have one. I have an option to go with the OEM Ford brake controller ($350+) or an aftermarket one ($100+). Do you know what the difference between the two might be? [more inside]

When can I see the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Trailer?

I was among the unfortunate many who was not able to attend to Doctor Who panel at SDCC 2013 and thus did not have the pleasure of viewing the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Trailer; I know Steven Moffat made it abundantly clear that he did not want to see anyone leaking the trailer, so I'm not really expecting to see any pirated versions. I guess the question I'm trying to ask is: When will the BBC allow the trailer to be public?

Literary novel with trailers joined in a circle

Identify this book. Literary novel, probably a first novel, published between 1994 and 1997, written by a guy who had taught writing at Harvard. The only thing I remember in it is an obsessive character in the desert who has welded multiple trailers or mobile homes in a circle so he can obsessively walk in circles inside them. [more inside]

Truck or trailer?

Keep the pickup or get a trailer? I bought a Ford F-150 pickup truck about 9 months ago for using out at a rural property I co-own. It's been helpful for moving materials, towing travel trailers out there, picking up straw, transporting heavy machinery, but I feel like I might be able to get by with my Subaru and a 6x8' or so utility trailer.

They have a trailer but I can't have it

I need to move an apartment's worth of things from Seattle to Dallas, including a vehicle. A U-Haul 5'x8' trailer would be awesome but they don't rent to Ford Explorer drivers. I have a Ford Explorer. There don't appear to be any other trailer rental companies in the Seattle area. Are there any other options? Less than $500 would be great--the U-Haul trailer I can't have is $321--but I'm open to all ideas that are somewhere in the ballpark. [more inside]

Speculation abound that the new Dark Knight Rises trailer actually contains plot spoilers. Can anyone think of other movie trailers that actually give away the movie ending? Clearly this doesn't apply to movies that were books first.

Locate Free 1.78:1 Trailers?

Is it possible to obtain free current movie trailers in a 1.78:1 aspect ratio (i.e. 2.35:1 matted to be 1.78:1)? If I download them from the Apple site or Youtube they're 2.35:1 without mattes. This is a problem because I wish to display them on a 16x9 monitor, so they'll stretch out to 1.78:1. [more inside]

Smallest folding bicycle folding trailer

I'm looking for a folding bicycle trailer. That's a trailer that folds up and connects to a bicycle (though it coincidentally will be connected to a folding bicycle, so I guess it's a folding bicycle folding trailer). Anyway, the main thing is that it needs to fold up really small. Please point me to the smallest, when folded, bicycle trailer you know about. Thanks.
