Editing No-No?

Due respect but I feel it’s a mistake to repeat the same clips in a trailer, even if the idea is to (a) show, (b) reverse-shift and then (c) return and repeat. The same clips of Kate Bosworth are shown twice in the recently posted official trailer for Rod Lurie‘s Straw Dogs. I’m especially bothered by one at the 28 second and 1:58 mark in which Bosworth talks about “men with guns,” etc. I don’t mean to rag but it doesn’t work.

  1. not following what you’re saying. every element from the first part (30 seconds or so) is repeated (in a very compressed few seconds)

    starting at about 1:54

    1 the pounding on door

    2 the audio from movie on tv

    3 gunshot

    4 flash of the husband

    5 breaking of glass

    and, then

    5 she says ‘there are 5 men with guns outside’

    are you saying it’s wrong to repeat all of those elements or just what she says?

  2. The repetition scheme doesn’t work, but for some reason I was particularly annoyed by Bosworth;’s “men with guns” clip.

  3. No one in the world cares about this movie or Rod Lurie. I’d forget he ever even existed if you didn’t have a contractual obligation to mention him and this movie every few days. He has all the relevance of Bryan Spicer. Probably less.

  4. I’d forget he ever even existed if you didn’t have a contractual obligation to mention him and this movie every few days.

    Wait, I thought this was Phillip Noyce week at H.E.? Dammit.

  5. I like Lurie. I remember hearing on an interview how he’s had a great baseball script in the hopper for years but hasn’t tried to make it because he can’t find an actor who can convincingly play a ball player.

  6. There are worse things in that trailer.

    That stupid “flash-to-black-with-creepy-music-underneath” effect (see 0:53 for the first example of this) has elicited laughter from every audience I’ve seen this with.

  7. Rothchild – sheesh… a personal attack on Rod out of nowhere. Are you a jilted assistant? An ex-girlfriend of his? Anonymity is nice…

    In fact, maybe you are some journalist who tried to make it in the business and couldn’t quite get there and it ties you up in knots that he did – Rod, I mean. I know it bugged the shit out of me… he was always talking at junkets about how he was going to write and direct (like how all of us did). He was arrogant but in a kind of likeable way. Its taken me a bit to just understand that somehow he had what it took and why begrudge him,?

    And if Jeff were contractually obligated to mention Lurie and his film, why would he attack it? That’s just retarded.

    And Jeff, I also am not a fan of the trailer. But the repeating there is the point of it all, isn’t it? They’re trying to be inventive. It may have backfired… I dunno. We’re too old to know what attracts the youngsters these days.

  8. No. I actually assumed he was one of those nice-guy-in-real-life-but-has-no-talent kind of guys.

    I mean, I wasn’t just being a smartass. I actually forgot he existed. Seriously. What is Resurrecting the Champ?

  9. Wow- Let’s take one film and hold it up as the microcosm of all his work.

    That’s just dumb and petty and I feel more than ever you ave some kind of ax to grind.

    The guy directed THE CONTENDER, Rothchild. One of the best political movies ever made…. I remember dropping out of my chair when Siskel and Ebert (or maybe it was Roeper) called it the best political film since Mr. Smith.. Two acting nominations.

    NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH was killer. And by the way, yeah, CHAMP was highly sentimental – but a good film nonetheless.

    And i will tell you something else- STRAW DOGS, I hear its good, but I am not sure, but if nothing else, shows that the guy has a little bit of courage. More than us pansies here writing so bravely under psuedonyms.

  10. “The guy directed THE CONTENDER, Rothchild. One of the best political movies ever made….”

    The guy who directed ‘The Contender’ also directed one of the best political movies ever made? Wow, what’s it called? It’s weird that he also made ‘The Contender’, which was pretty much the lamest political movie ever made until the remake of ‘All The King’s Men’ came out.
