    Re: Movie Trailer Thread

    My main issue with the Dark Tower trailer is that there seems to be no mystery. The gunslinger novel you are always wondering what everything is, and when you think it's going to be revealed you are more lost than what you started out. I think they are trying to start book 3 or 4, but I think this is another example of showing too much IMO

    Fwiw I believe that the Dark Tower would've been better for HBO than the big screen. I think the story is too complex to do under 5-6 movies. I just don't know if the interest will stay after their first meh rating.

It was real and it was exciting. The Hawaiians didn't like being disrespected by the cocky Aussies, which was like an underlying current running through the whole story. Narration by Edward Norton....just a very special surf movie if you lived through those times and can relate....

    my friends and I would get out parents to take us to crappy hotels on the Ft Lauderdale Strip to sit in a "ballroom" full of 99% other guys to go "whoa" in sync with one another watching the occasional surf movie that would come through town. Some of those movies were fantastic, but this is a little before my time

    I was piggybacking off a comment about King's books vs. their movie counterpart. Most of King's books have been terrible movies (personal opinion).

    They have had this in the works for quite some time, a several episode mini series for HBO about the Eighth Air Force and the battle over Europe. Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg have a hand in developing the project....
    I am looking forward to watching this.

    That trailer was put up in 2013. Pretty wild that it's taken that long.

    Luc Besson's stuff is usually very visually interesting so I'm curious to see what the reviews are like on this one. May end up seeing it anyway just for some of the effects. Professional and Fifth Element are pretty high on my all time movie lists.
