The new trailer for Todd “Hangover” Phillips new films has arrived, and I’m sorry to announce I’m still not on the band wagon.
Stilling in a darkened room for over two hours watching a group of assholes through a party does not seem like my idea of fun. I am a uni student and this shit is targeted right at me, we are the party generation, everything about this is for the 19-year-old, the club music soundtrack, the kinetic camera work for a nonstop age and even the fucking midget all targeted at a collective ‘us’. The same ‘us’ that seems to be unable to watch an episode of a T.V. show without tweeting along, the ‘us’ that doesn’t know how to sit still for the duration of a film and the same ‘us’ that can’t watch a good film, just because its silent.
There may be many of these ass holes out there, but I’m not one of them, and I hope I’m not alone. The idea of watching three unlikable twats have a massive party, destroying property and assaulting a man in a desperate bid to become ‘Heroes’ seems like a highly un-enjoyable experience. And it’s not like they are even loveable losers, these guys are not McLovin, they are rude and bad-mannered not only to each other but to members of the public. I need to enjoy spending time with the characters to enjoy a film, there are many lovable assholes as leads characters though out history, but they all seem to be played with just the right hit of knowing.
Please Hollywood stop trying to make films ‘I will want to see’ and just make films you want to see, ultimately I will enjoy that more.
Undoubtably some of you will want to see this film, if so I hope you do enjoy it and I would love to be surprised when it comes out later this year on March 2nd.
