If you are a fan of Cruise's work, I think this is a fun 10 minutes.
It sounds like the kind of escapist entertainment that will be in heavy demand under the next administration.
"It's time to be a patriot."
Xander: "There are no more patriots. Just rebels and tyrants."
"So which are you?"
Xander: "I'm Triple X."
But it's supposed to open in January and it's well known that January is where movies "go to die".
Summary--10 minute video--of some excellent performances in good movies.
Moneyball is a really fine movie. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it.
I rewatched The Usual Suspects recently and thought, as many people do, that it's a terrifically entertaining film. But on the second viewing I noticed a couple of interesting points relating to the surprise ending. (Spoilers ahead.)
So I looked, briefly, to see if other people made these observations. I saw claims that there are big plot holes (for examples, here and here), the claim that Keyser Soze wasn't who's he's supposedly revealed to be (for examples, here and here), and even the claim that Keyser Soze didn't really exist.
But I didn't see anybody who mentioned my two points. (The analysis of the movie is quite voluminous and I didn't spend a whole lot of time looking.) So on the off-chance that they're original, I'm putting them here.
A pretty thorough analysis of this absolutely vital question.
In a good way, though.
"There's a greater demand for professional language creation services in Hollywood than there's ever been . . ."
"Patrick Swayze And Jennifer Grey Didn’t Get Along" and others.
I see stuff like this and think that it's interesting that Hollywood works even as well it does.
