The Trailer Addict site‘s embed button didn’t work, but it is worth clicking through from here. I must see this film. You could also go to The Secret of Kells site directly and see amazing images. Thank you, JES, for cluing me in. If it doesn’t come to Austin, I will cry.
Do you see many movies? Are you a renter or one of those folks who stands in line for hours to be among the first to see a new release? I know people who go to the cinema and see “whatever.” These people say things like, “Oh, that looks good. Why don’t we see that?”
When I was single and dating (or trying to date anyway), I went to see movies because they were there and some guy wanted to see it (View to a Kill, Lethal Weapon 4, Police Academy #?). Now, I only watch movies I want to see. Really want. I don’t see many movies, but I’m rarely disappointed.
I can’t explain what it is about a film that compels me to see it. It isn’t an actor. I love John Cusack but have seen very few of his films. It isn’t a director. A dose of magic helps. Loving the book a movie is based on helps. Art helps (look how gorgeous The Secret of Kells is!) Then again, there are plenty of fantasy flicks I don’t watch. And I hate that ready-for-an-Oscar-lighting some movies blind me with in the trailer.
What is it that gets you to a movie? (It is a far cry from a book, but almost every movie began with a writer telling a story.)
