The Recruit - Okay, so it started out promisingly (Al Pacino and Colin Farell), but it ended up telling me so much of the plot that I don't feel any inclination to seeing what it's like with 100 minutes of padding.
Antwone Fisher - I'm getting cynical. Throughout the entire trailer, with Denzel being a concerned analyst to a troubled young Navy officer, I could only hear "OSCAR! GIVE ME ANOTHER OSCAR!" in my head. I blame my British upbringing, obviously.
The Life of David Gale - Kate Winslet and Kevin Spacey? Can I give them my money now? With me paying double if Alan Parker does a shot for shot remake of the finale from Bugsy somewhere in the film? So it's a serious examination about the death penalty; does that mean that there can't be a song-and-dance number? I think not.
The Emperor's Club - Does the world need Dead Poets' Society II? Really? If it begins with the class committing suicide en masse, I'm in. The trailer doesn't give most hope of that, unfortunately...
Adaptation - Oooh! Nicolas Cage as a moody Southerner writer! With an identical twin! This is about a writer, Charlie Kaufman, who is trying to adapt a book into a film, and puts himself in the film. The actual film is written by Charlie Kaufman, and arose from his difficulties in trying to adapt a book. Should I mention at this point that Kaufman wrote Being John Malkovich? And that this is directed by Spike Jonze?
