The reviews are mixed to say the least.
Anyone seen this?
everyone's saying it's plain awful
they said the original cut was plain awful. This new one is getting better reviews.
but still dismal. all the reviews i've seen of the new one are 1 star.
I want to see it.
review makes me want to see it, hugely.
even though i expect it to be really bad.
one of my workmates went to see it and said it was either the worst film ever or a work of staggering genius. he couldn't decide.
between i am legend and the new philip seymour hoffman film tonight.
i wouldn't mind some mindless entertainment but i'm not sure i can get over my hatred for will smith
just doing my p.diddy impression.
suggests that it's absolutely horrendous
he likes nearly everything, well he SAYS he does.
I haven't been impressed with the clips and probably won't go and see it. i don't think SMG is a good actress and she has a knack of choosing absolutely awful films. The Rock is irritating on screen too. From what I could tell of the actors interviews on film2007 none of them could explain what the film was about and that's worrying.
In the same episode there was a bizarre film preview of ryan phillipe's new film where he plays a masked detective like the one from the watchmen comics. That looked interesting.
I may go for paranoid park as the first movie i'll see of 2007. It's been a bad year.

How do you know it's been a bad year if you haven't seen any films? And there's been a lot of great films, so you're wrong on that front as well.
I'd go and see Southland Tales if I could actually find somewhere that's playing it. It's so ridiculous-there doesn't seem to be any cinemas except a few in London screening it.
she can't act and her playing dumb to be a porn star produces an annoying accent. Cruel Intentions was her nadir.
buffy is television acting and while tv occasionally produces great performances (band of brothers) it can't be judged in the same way as film acting. Lately actresses have seemed weak to me in favour of finding youth and beauty. It seems a bad time to be a Hollywood actress, the parts for them are pretty lame and it's no surprise that some of them have ended up on tv for one season of x or y because the parts offered to them are better than porn star or hot neighbour girl and if they're old they can look forward to playing mother, mother in law.
Buffy wasn't about the acting, it was about the plots and the relationships of the characters and emotions buffy went through at killing, bringing her friends into harms way and being superhuman. I never saw one episode where she amazed me. She was just Buffy and post the tv show that has been her problem, finding a film where she could show audiences she was more than that.
