And here I thought the endless failed attempts to recreate classic Spielberg movie magic had left me too jaded to believe again.
Five stars for a trailer edited together so well I can't tell if the movie sucks or not.
Seriously. This is what looks so great to you people? I'm at a loss for what's so amazing here.
No matter what your opinions of his movies are, JJ Abrams sure can put together a trailer.
Oh, if only he doesn't try and take a JJ shit on it. You know the drill, an ending which leaves several nagging questions which JJ offers to sell the answers to via novels, comic books, PC games etc. $$$
Oh he can hook you, but if you wanna know what the Hell you just saw you gotta pay up!
WHO WANTS DESSERT
I've never had any "nagging questions" leaving a JJ Abrams movies, and I can't fault him for wanting to capitalize on the sperglords who can't handle not knowing where the monster from Cloverfield was from or where the Romulans were in the 20 years they were waiting for Spock.
Oh please, waving around the foam, LOLSPERGLOID sword has about as much bite as calling someone a 'fascist' these days since its so overused.
JJ is the same thing to cinematic good taste as James Cameron is. Look into your heart and know its true. Or at least that Superman script he wrote...
If there's a permutation of the word "fascist" that is as hilarious as "lolspergloid," I am pretty sure it will stick.
Uh, wait...are you blaming the FANS for the sperglord shit? Cuz, uh, I dunno where you were for the entire bullshit marketing build-up for Cloverfield but it was ABRAHMS who put out all that stupid alternate reality game bullshit about the creature's origin and how it ties into a drink from Lost or some bullshit and how that ties into the future of the world and how that ties into where the monster's hat was designed or whatever. That was all J.J. pure and simple. Same goes for Star Trek, where he and the writers decided to write a far more complex storyline than could ever be featured in the movie so that they could market a comic book prequel (which does in fact tell you where the Romulans were for 20 years). Fans weren't inventing this stuff or clamoring for it initially...this was all his own ideas.
Goddamn, great trailer.

I imagine that for someone like Abrams, working with Spielberg is literally a dream come true.
