Just a cool dude (i suck).
I don’t even know where to begin. This was a first time viewing for me, and I was shocked at how crappy most of it was but also HIGHLY watchable.
Shameless rip off of Titanic, only ten times dumber which I thought was bad ass. The attack on Pearl was insane and full blown Saving Private Ryan was very jarring.
I dug it very much. Surprise casting of Dan Akroyd and Michael Shannon. Cool aloha shirts on Ben and Hartnett. Faith Hill song at the end credits. I’m all in baby. Three hour run time felt like ten hours.
Shockingly homophobic, misogynistic, and real deal dumb. I FREAKING loved it.
I like to consider this phase of Carpenter his nü metal era (Escape from LA, Ghosts of Mars) and it’s exactly that. Brash. Short. Offensive. Bland. Idiotic. Angsty for no reasons. This movie and the characters in all pieces of shit. James Woods is a fucking wretched asshole in this just like real life. You just know him and Daniel Baldwin and Carp were raging monsters on this set. …
I really truly and deeply loved this movie. It zigs and zags. It’s BIZARRE. It defies most categorization. It’s gorgeous and hot pink!
It opens with a Charli XCX song and it crescendos with a top tier heater (I won’t spoil it as it’s a whole vibe). And for those points alone I’m into it.
The movie made me feel a lot of things. And I walked away feeling like there are no good men in this world. Only ones…
