Adding to the list of questionable and possibly disappointing movies that will be released this summer, we have two more trailers that don’t inspire me to watch their films. Ever. Sadly, they come from two filmmakers that I normally enjoy and respect for their creative talent.
Hitting theaters this weekend, the movie adaptation of a 1960s fantasy soap opera has me totally confused if not totally disappointed. As a fan of Tim Burton, I can’t figure out what in the world he’s thinking, because so far, the movie looks god-awful. I get what’s he’s going for, a comedy twist to a cult favorite, but the bigger question is why? Especially since none of what we see is remotely funny or the least bit amusing. At this point, I’ll wait for the Blu-ray.
Ugh. It’s not bad enough that movie-lovers must suffer the non-existing talents of Channing Tatum (geesh, that name really sounds like a dirty sexual position), but now we’re expected to watch a dramedy based on his former life as a male stripper. I have to try to be patient, though, because this is a Steven Soderbergh film, and the guy tends to surprise even when making some questionable movie concepts. I’ve gotta have faith that Soderbergh knows what he’s doing, but this preview already makes me want to gouge out my eyes. So, color me extremely doubtful.
