Eight Days Ago

Finally seeing McG’s Terminator tonight in Barcelona con subtitles, and this fairly decent mashup piece is getting me in the mood, I suppose. Being out of the timely-screening loop feels queer and relaxing at the same time. The only problem here is that I hated/currently hate/will always hate Transformers.

    Wells, you have no idea how jealous I am over your last few weeks. But for the love of God, don’t go to McTerminator tonight. I’m not referencing a lack of quality (I haven’t seen it due to an insanely busy schedule). You are in Barcelona! Explore. Wander the streets. Get mixed up with locals. Seduce some gorgeous Spaniard. For fucks sake, get mugged! Live! And wait for the Blu-Ray…

    Full disclosure: I am writing this from my back porch in Portland with a dog, a Maker’s Mark and a cigarette. So maybe you shouldn’t listen to me.

  2. fwiw — if you hated transformers, it doesn’t bode well for mcterminator….

    tvtears has exactly the right idea……

  3. Terminator: Salvation was fuckin’ terrible. McG is a low-rent Michael Bay. Can’t wait for the real thing.

  4. Hey, Jeff.

    In case you need a little tour around the city, I’d be my pleasure to show you around.

    Are you sure you’re watching this today? It doesn’t open here until next week.

  5. In a way, the Transformer is a perfect, political cartoon symbol for “Summer Movie”..(much in the same way editorial cartoonists use dinosaurs, gorillas and assorted grim reapers for “The Deficit”

    It’s huge….took a lot of people to bring to life…

    …makes a lot of noise, lumbers around, occasonally makes funny faces and wisecracks,…wreaks general havoc on the

    infastructure…carries on its activitiy way too long

    …quickly wears out its welcome….and always threatens to return every other summer.

  6. TERMINATOR 4 is interesting for one reason, which is the crest of the wave that is “Christian Bale, Movie Star”. He just doesn’t have the charisma to be effective when he’s on autopilot, which he is far too often these days. He’s a fine actor and he should go back to character work.
