Best Movie of the Summer?
They named it for a president. They made it soft and cuddly. But then the claws came out...
There's nothing more frustrating than seeing a great trailer like this, that promises a “Summer 2011” release, but then you can't find a release date on IMDb. I'm just saying that I hope somebody releases this thing soon because we need it. Caught between “Final Destination 5” and “The Help,” I'll take the action-adventure movie “The Teddy Bear,” starring Jordan Muschler and Ryan Muschler, thank you.
The Life Submarine with Oliver Tate
It was after I watched this talk by Harvey Weinstein on Jeff Wells' site, in which he made passing reference to the movie “Submarine,” that I saw the trailer for the movie on IMDb.com. Curious, I checked it out. It looked good. Although this shot seemed somehow familiar.
Even more so the wallpaper in this shot.
By the time the protagonist walks by the swimming pool in this shot, I was thinking, “OK, that's enough.”
I still hope the movie is good on its own and not simply derivative of Wes Anderson. June 3rd release in the states.
SIFF Quote of the Day
“Grandmother, melancholy grips my heart when I think of your old violin.”
—Opening words of a trailer for a film playing at SIFF, the Seattle International Film Festival. I'm a SIFF fan but this is almost a parody of an overly precious SIFF film.
