I Blame Bruce Willis



Ah, good ol' fashion dark satirical comedy. Hold on one moment while I pause to take all of it in with one deeeeep breaaaath. Ah, feels just like home. Now if only I could replace Steve Carrell with some obscure British comedian and replace Keira Knightley with a cardboard cutout of Keira Knightley. I kid I kid, I do often find myself feeling as if I'm among the few who spend more time defending Knightley than enjoying her movies. Though of course I don't entirely put that on her. After all, who would have known that Domino wouldn't turn out to be HOLY CRAP LOOK AT THE FLASHY LIGHTS!!!!!!!

Sorry about that, I've recently found out that there are some unwanted side effects to watching two Tony Scott films back to back. Back on subject, let's talk about the film Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (or SaFftEotW for short...er...ish). It looks pretty good and I find the trailer contains just the right blend of charm, realism, and satire absurdity. So I think it's safe to say that I'm looking forward too it.

Now that's enough of that.

Do you think that's how Tony Scott pitches every movie?

"So Denzel ends up becoming the bodyguard for Dakota and HOLY CRAP LOOK AT THE FLASHY LIGHTS!!!!!!!"

"So there's this train that's, like, totally gone runaway and HOLY CRAP LOOK AT THE FLASHY LIGHTS!!!!!!!"

I'm looking forward to it too - and that's not something I say about many 2012 films. It's a bit embarrassing, but I actually liked Carell in Dinner for Schmucks...

I'm definitely looking forward to it. The Patton bit in the trailer was really funny.

Haven't watched the trailer because...well, you know. But, I'm so intrigued about this. Keira, yes. Carrell? Okay, I'll bite.

Hmm, Domino...that was...something.

I'm looking forward to this as well, which may be one of the few waiting for in 2012 other than Jeff Who Lives At Home. So, Keira Knightley may not make a difference if she's replaced with simply a picture of her, but it's the pairing of the two that makes this film special. I look forward to it.
