Completely unrelated updateLooks like I am to be presented with new-hire, Home Depot paperwork this Wednesday. I'll go with it. Go for a ride for a check awhile with Home Depot. Maybe get a benny or two by discount to DIY materials.Zero special pay. 9.28, something like that. Hopefully some sort of dental deduction.Same part time strategy going on throughout the U.S. Which is fine by me. 29 hours of boredom maybe my max at this time in my life.I'll miss this
So you'll be doing both the Home Depot AND the airport-car work? Or will you ditch the latter?
I imagine I have to ditch Avis. I'll know Wednesday
Ha. I put the wrong link on my "I'll Miss this".
saw this trailer during Wolverine. No thanks, already saw the outcome. No build up as to why I should PAY for this movie. Where's the story? I saw just SFX.
Brad Bird also thought too much was given away. I think the story is just given a good start with the accident.It's a survival movie that hasn't been done except for Apollo 13
My mind sees all the pieces that have to come. The Clooney survival aboard the shuttle fragment. The Earth scramble to get another vehicle up. Sandra, alone in the infinite, waiting for a fiery re-entry. That's going to be a full steam ahead movie.
Trailer still sucks. A space accident story that shows you the accident in the trailer but nothing leading up to it or what this story is about. Very bad. This trailer and there are 3 of them looks (all the same) as if a bean counter green lit it to sell SFX to the public. Look at Apollo 13's trailer....at least that tells me something about the film.Apollo 13 trailerhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEl0NsYn1fU
Clooney is probably going to get a lot of good Gulliver Foyle-Stars my Destination-type of survival scenes. I love that stuff. Like Sam Neill in Dead Calm. When he has to survive in his sinking boat.
And, I'll predict that Clooney must sacrifice himself for Sandra. And that Sandra will cry.
After Prisoner of Askaban and Children of Men I will give Cuaron the benefit of the doubt. I saw these trailers and found them very tense and engrossing. I suspect that what we've seen is from the first 10 minutes of the movie. I kind of like the possibility of avoiding 20 minutes of filler/character development that is stale and tired and just getting into the adventure.However, I agree with Bird that Warner could show a little more confidence in their product and not show so much of the movie in the trailers.
Bird makes a great point. The surprise of this massive outer space disaster may have shocked and etched a favorite movie moment. The necessary surprise for that kind of moment is well diluted for anyone that watches the trailer.Buncake has the right idea. He's adamant about avoiding trailers for anything he wants to see. Also articles. Probably avoiding this thread.
@ Ellis--Ha! funny last comment about Scott B.In case anyone cares (cue cricket sound), I love the way the sfx looks, but the trailer makes me NOT want to see the flick cuz:1. gives away so much (really does feel like the "whole" movie, however many complications follow (and El, I agree with yr prognostications of man-in-space survival thriller, but the "shoot-our-wad" trailer leads me to believe that space survival story isn't as good as it shld be)2. Sandra Bullock grunting and huffing and hyperventilating like...like...I don't even want to imagine it. Guy or girl making that noise, I don't care, I want to smack them. She floats off into the darkness of space and my first thought was, "GOOD RIDDANCE!" 2b. Can't we ever get a movie that shows actual cool under pressure? (Think Howard Hawks flicks...). Isn't that so much more compelling? The Clooney dialogue is sort of written/delivered that way, but everything else is so hysterical I just lost any faith in the film....You can wake up now. I'm done.
...and HEY! The job news sounds great!I'd like a half-price table saw, please. Shipped to Irvine.
I'm still debating the Home Depot option. I'll show tomorrow and maybe turn them down. We'll see.You made me laugh with the "good riddance " comment. Yeah, Magnolia was a movie that had too much hyper , women in crisis, blubbery sound for a man to comfortably take. John C Reilly blubbering about his lost gun, that's good.Julianne Moore, acting her butt off, doing a great job, got on my last nerve.
Took the Home Depot job. Start next Wednesday. Get my teeth cleaned in about 90 days. Start having a dentist relationship again.
