Trailers embedded after the break should give you an idea why. Sure, it’s kind of — and I do mean kind of — like Terminator with an ensemble cast which includes JGL, Bruce Willis, Paul Dano and Emily Blunt. But the reason why I’m saying it’ll be one of 2012’s greatest is because of the director.
Rian Johnson — aside from trolling David Chen’s podcast last year (Google “Super 8 Slashfilm cast” if you could, and it’ll be worth your time I promise) — is a very cool guy and a talented filmmaker. Brick, despite being a wee bit sluggish at times, was a very interesting take on the noir genre, and The Brothers Bloom was… well, I honestly haven’t seen it yet so I really can’t comment on that. But hey, you know, I’ve heard many praises as well so take that as it is.
