Seven Pounds Trailer Review

Seven Pounds is the new film that Will Smith has coming out this Christmas.  The trailer was on the head of Max Payne.  The trailer while it might be a teaser has a fatal flaw.  It is implied that Will's character did something wrong and needs to help seven people for redemption.  Problem is they don't tell you of give you an idea of why he has to make these acts of kindness.  It make the trailer disjointed because it has no driving motive.  If they simply gave that little information the trailer would work, but currently it doesn't.

Check out the trailer and let me know if you agree.


Max Payne Review

Saw Max Payne this weekend and the film does live up to the hype.  But it has some problems.  In the marketing of the film the winged Valkyrie are set up as being some Supernatural Villains that Max will have to battle.  They are not.  In my opinion not having the Valkyrie in the trailer could have helped in making the seeing of the movie even more wonderful.  Your mind spent a lot of time wondering where these winged characters would come in.  The marketing gave the film a Constantine feeling which is really off base.

The first 30 mins moves good but the second 30 drags and then the last 15 mins the movie takes off and pays.  The female lead comes in and out of her fake Russian accent and Payne (Walberg) in a couple of scenes where he a pistol and wins shoot out with an arm of automatic weapons.  But it still looks good and works.

Worth seeing but could use some editing.

Is Steve Jobs Dying?

I may be the only person thinking this but Is Steve Jobs dying?  If you saw the latest Apple Keynote Address introducing the new Mac Book Pro, Steve has lost a lot of weight and just does not look good.  I shutter to think.  I have never purchased anything other than a Mac so I am a die hard Appler. But Steve has me a bit worried.  I hope I am wrong.  Let me know what you think.  A picture is worth a 1,000 words.
