yeah there's pretty much no way this is going to be as good as the book
I don't remember one explosion in the book. But I am still excited for this.
Where the hell is the grocery cart? Why is the dead wife so prominent? Why all the damn flashbacks?
This really needed to be filmed by Sukorov (see his "Mother and Son" for the right look) or Tarr (watch the long, lingering takes in "Satantango" or "Werckmeister Harmonies"). Hollywood is simply incapable of tackling the book.
Can't rate, fists still shaking at the screen.
"When they do move, the father and the son progress through a quietly seething dream, a world at its end. When they run from danger, they clank and rustle and seem wetly destined to never get away."
That sounds about right.
One of the trailers for No Country For Old Men made IT look like an action movie. With that in mind, this looks good. Not what I envisioned while reading the book, but I still think it'll be a good adaptation.
Now I'm wondering why the movie's release was delayed. Did they actually re-edit it to make it less like the book and more "exciting", or is the trailer just shitty?
It's too bad if the studio did fuck up the movie, because all the initial pre-release buzz when it was supposed to come out was that it was an outstanding interpretation of the book and the few people who saw screenings said it might even be Oscar contender material.
"Hack" is right.
If you're a movie trailer editor and find yourself going with the "heartbeat" fading to black montage at the end, kill yourself.
This looks like it would be the best movie ever, if it didn't look like shit compared to the book.
Yup, looks like pittsburgh to me.
Not Pittsburgh, Braddock.
I love the The Proposition, I love Cormac McCarthy, and I love Omar Little, so I'm seeing this no matter what.
Hey it's Jack McCall! Cynicism slightly lightened.
Hmm. I guess we'd better watch Deadwood again on DVD to decide.
Eh. It's not the same, but it looks like it'll still be pretty fun to watch.
"fun" is not an emotion I equate with The Road
My beard is aroused and furious!
I shall have you know that I will be writing an angry review about this movie ON THE INTERNET

I didn't read the book because I was afraid it would depress the fuck out of me. The movie looks more depressing than Children of Men and I'm not sure I could take that.
The book is very depressing. I read it during the winter months and it certainly took its toll on me. But once you start reading it, you can't really stop.
And it is as close to a happy ending that any Cormac McCarhy book comes.
I sure as hell hope this is a misleading trailer.
