is it any good?
it looks like it should be
and I think 'Are we watching the same trailer?'
One time I had an incident like the start of the trailer. Except the girl was listening to Gang of Four I pulled her earphones out and said 'I LOVE Gang of Four! I said I LOVE Gang of Four! "And the rubbers you hide! In your top left pocket!"'
No not really I just let her keep listening to it. And nobody wants to buy the film rights.
I LOVE the Smiths!!
Yeah I know you were listening to Gang of Four I was just telling you that I love the Smiths.
I was letting my own smug thoughts echo around my head. Probably why you thought it sounded like smug indie-post-punk-rock.
come on Fox Searchlight this is gold
Not talking is pretty indie. Could be a success. Or could be terrible. The only way to find out is by making the film with millions of Fox Searchlight dollars.
Too bad there won't be a film to document it. But still, telepathy rocks!
it's one of those premises that walks the tightrope between fun and annoying but I#ve heard enough to hope that it's the former. To be fair it looks like one of those Marmite films, but then also this forum does seem to have a hideously low tolerance for films like this (everyone hates Juno, Garden State etc).
it is one of the best romatic comedies of recent years. Not sure that 'comedy' is the right description for it - whimsy might be better.
bit of an underappreciated genre
I'd be a bit narked at being called the 'new Heath Ledger' all the time. It's like people are expecting you to die or something.
It's kinda okayish. You'll need to be a certain type of person to like it (especially if male as it's a total chick film) but if you're the sentimental/whimsical type you'll probably dig.
Plus everyone's had a girl like Summer so it's quite easily relatable.
he has been around too long to be the next anyone
for like 16 years???
IT DOESN'T SUCK.
It was pretty funny sometimes, I loved the really cute musical interlude, the arthouse take-off, the structure of it which sums up the whole bizarreness of relationships (for example, when someone just doesn't find you funny and they realise you have lots of faults they hate, even though you had them at the start etc). That's all good. I liked that it was about a relationship, just one, not THE ONE. It did ring true, despite all the shit embarrassing bits with her singing the Smiths, and them being embarrassing generally
The only problem is that they're not the most arresting characters - Annie Hall and Alvy Singer seemed so real. Even Sally from Harry Met Sally felt more 'real'. The seemingly romantic parts of the relationship were totally boring, cos it's boring to see people going to IKEA (who the fuck would find this romantic) and watching films together. I didn't need to see that to believe they were in a relationship. But what else are they gonna do with 2-D characters? Needed more lobsters to chase after.
but the act of shared home-making is though.
Or is that just me?
i thought it was pretty obvious from the title and the reviews and the trailer that they don't stay together
tbh i'd just like to help pick furniture, decorate the house and then go back to my own place. you know, more than likely whoever I'm with will have a bigger budget than me so i can vicariously do some interior design
people who saw the trailer for this and decided to make it their life's mission to never come in contact with any aspect of it again. And cunts
you either like something or you dont, people who have the over the top negative reactions are the ones to watch out for.
*flicks through pad*
umm, yeah.. i'm afraid that post places you firmly in the latter camp. Sorry buddy, i didn't make the rules. I just enforce
because...erm, i don't why
it's really not as bad as i expected, given the utter shitness of the trailer. probably not as good as white chicks, which i imagine has interesting subtexts as least
These films are like the Kasabian of the film threads here in terms of popularity (only not as crap).
it's really the perfect demographic here for these films, isn't it?
All of us guys want a Manic Pixie Dream Girl.
they are out being DJs slash scenesters slash girlfriend of minor indie singer slash novelists slash columnists for erotic magazines slash part-time models slash actresses
Oh, someone's already done that joke.
coming fall 2009
the hall and oates bit is worth your money alone.
