This is the trailer for the awesomely-named Birdemic, a direct-to-DVD thriller from director James Nguyen.  It begins with more than a full minute of completely actionless landscape shots set to unmixed audio from the camera mic.  Uh, dude?  Those shouldn’t be in the movie, let alone the trailer.  But just when you’re like, “Hey, where’s the birdpocalypse I was promised?”  You hit the 1:08 mark and BOOM!  THERE’S THE F*CKING BIRDPOCALYPSE!  That is easily the best CGI I’ve ever seen. It reminds me of those tales I heard about Michael Bay as a child, when he discovered you can make seagulls explode by feeding them Alka-Seltzer.  All you have to do is wrap the tablets in C4 and rig them with a remote detonator.
