So a few people around the Gabbing Geek offices are pretty excited today about going to see The Force Awakens. Unfortunately I have to stay and get the gremlins out of the servers and reconfigure the Watson Finder™ as it is clearly not working, and won’t be seeing the movie until Sunday. (Yes, my Geek Card status is definitely in question.)
After the break, to cleanse the pallet and prepare for the new film, Honest Trailers and How It Should Have Ended tackle the last Star Wars film that was released.
I haven’t re-watched Attack of the Clones yet, so…there’s no comments from me in the post that precedes this one. But to at least contribute today I searched out this Honest Trailer. Some funny stuff, and no love is given to most anything, especially Hayden Christensen…but that is no surprise. See for yourself after the break.
So I’m starting to think that Ryan and I are the only ones that liked Terminator: Genesis…Genysis…ah forget it…the lastest Terminator sequel. It’s not perfect and will potentially make your brain hurt if you think too much about it, but it is still fun and does more for the franchise than either Rise of the Machines or Salvation.
Honest Trailers doesn’t quite feel the same way. See what they have to say after the jump.
Fantastic Four is currently at 10% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Which is not good, but actually up a little I think. This movie has had disaster written all over it for a long time. So it was surprising when both Jenny and Watson give it halfway decent reviews.
I never caught it in theatres but watched it recently and surprisingly it wasn’t half bad. Only one-third bad. I thought it had a great sci-fi/horror vibe going for it and was ruined when it, ironically, turned into a super hero movie. I’d be curious to see Trank’s original vision for the film as the last third of the movie felt like the studio got cold feet and stepped in to “fix” it and only made things worse.
