It looks pretty stunning, doesn't it? If nothing else, it'll be a huge technical achievement, which is par for the course for Fincher. I really wish he was still doing that Motley Crue movie. All the good directors who have been attached and could do something interesting with that material fall by the wayside.
I'll be seeing it Christmas day. I'm gonna try to see something today and tomorrow, then it'll be "Seven Pounds" on Friday. I don't know what between that and Xmas, but this is definite. Can't wait.
Yes, it looks totally stunning. I am expecting something great. I know some people have felt that it is "emotionally cold" but I'd rather it be a little more detached than overly sentimental. Plus, the great Eric Roth wrote the script, so I am simply expecting great things.I was never a Motley Crue fan but I'd see anything that Fincher thought was worth his time.
Seven Pounds is a film I'm still not entirely sold on. I really like Smith but something feels "off" about Seven Pounds.It'll be Button for me on either xmas day or the day after. After that, I am at the mercy of the limited release schedule for all of the rest of the year-end heavy-hitters.
The Motley Crue thing is an adaptation of their autobiography "The Dirt" which is actually excellent reading, fan or not. The last person to have it was the great Larry Charles, who would have been PERFECT. He doesn't like the band either, but he loved the themes at play of these guys just plowing through life, leaving misery in their wake and became huge anyway. Needless to say, he's not doing it anymore.
Interesting. I've been intrigued with stories of rock 'n roll excess for a long time. I'll have to check it out at some point.
If you need a tale of rock excess, this is the book for you. (well, this as Led Zep's "Hammer of the Gods")It's actually pretty heartbreaking in certain parts. I'm sure if they ever make the movie, they'll just get some vision-less hack to helm it and it'll be crap.
