Trailer For "The Darjeeling Limited"!
Wes Anderson is back!
My name is Bob. My friend Justin and I are aspiring filmmakers and we have pretty similar tastes in movies. This will include our take on what's going on in film and television today as well as updating you on the status of our own work.
I just watched it. Who greenlit this thing? Who decided this was suitable for release? Stay far away. 2/10
Seriously, it just got everywhere. Yes, that's a real poster. Yes, that's Jason Lee. All I can say is...why?
Finally getting a day off I at last had the chance to see "Transformers" at a time that wasn't ridiculously late. I could actually enjoy it and what better way to enjoy it than by seeing it at the theater of my childhood, the Oak Tree. It's where I saw "Top Gun" and "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" as a kid but I hadn't been there in years. Very happy to see that the theater is pretty much just as I remember it. They didn't re-model but it doesn't look old and rundown either. But to the movie, yes!
I've said it before and I'll say it again. Little people with bad taste grow up to be big people with bad taste. Studios serve up garbage films to children all the time. It's excused with a shrug and the words, "Oh, it's for kids. They'll like it!" This is why I am so incredibly thankful for Pixar and the writer-director of "The Incredibles," Brad Bird. Bird is also the man behind Pixar's newest effort, "Ratatouille." He understands that quality matters no matter how old the audience is.
The movie I've been talking up for over a year now finally gets its Seattle release...on one screen...for one week only. Sooo...it's sort of a victory. Just make sure you get to it this week!
I haven't seen "Transformers" yet but those who I've talked to say that Michael Bay did not include Stan Bush's timeless rock classic (oh, if sarcasm could be conveyed over a computer screen), "The Touch." This makes me want to kill Michael Bay. Well I have to attend an interstellar peace conference. But until I return I leave you with..."The Touch":
