Re: "After Earth" - Trailer (M. Night Shyamalan, Will & Jayden Smith)

Perhaps The Gimmick Of My Father And Me Starring In A Movie Is Actually More Annoying Than Appealing

I think this nepotism stuff I'm reading is overblown. I don't see a problem with Will Smith wanting to help his son succeed. A lot of parents do and would do what Will is doing if they could.

And Jaden has done two films-Karate Kid and The Day the Earth Stood Still-without his dad co-starring. It's not like he has been propped up by his dad for his whole (short, and just beginning) career.
Well his Dad may not have been in the Karate Kid, but both of his parents produced the movie to be a leading role for their son.

At least Aaron Spelling knew Tori wasn't good enough to be the lead character of 90210.

Re: "After Earth" - Trailer (M. Night Shyamalan, Will & Jayden Smith)

Well the box office receipts for Karate Kid disprove that. As for After Earth it will likely go down in flames in the US, but it might do well overseas. Where this could all lead for Jaden Smith's career I have no clue.

The Onion piece (I know it's not serious) claims the movie has no soul. It's not the greatest piece of acting in the world but I thought it was heartfelt enough, or at least attempted to be, and it didn't come across as soulless to me. It is a simple story about a father and son connecting and the son coming into his own. It's a story about a son stepping out of from under his father's shadow, the claim many make that the Smiths have actually done by making this film together.

25 minutes in, and I am really not feeling it.

After Oblivion, I'm really expecting a twist.

The villains are badly armed, it has to be a ruse.

As far as I'm concerned, it's their money and their kid, and they can do whatever they want with it. There's no reason why there can't be family businesses in the film industry. As with normal businesses, the customer, meaning you, decides if the new kid is worth the ticket.

Re: "After Earth" - Trailer (M. Night Shyamalan, Will & Jayden Smith)

This movie has the wrong name.

A more accurate name would have been...

After Man.

Back to Earth.

Return to Earth.

(0r)

Cadet Jayden's Homecoming.

....

The colony world is called Nova Prime?

New One?

What world are you from?

The New One.

No sir.

I don't think I'm giving away any spoilers?

Although I thought of Enterprise when I heard the name of the colony.

Terra Nova in season one and Terra Prime in season four.

After reading so many of the bad reviews I have come to the conclusion that many found the movie a bit boring. Even from what I have read I know I will still see it.

It's like Jurassic park.

You paid to see a movie about monsters eating annoying children, and then... They all hop into a helicopter and fly away exacting no resolutions whatsofuckingever.

I just wanted to see Kirsten Dunst bisected.

Is that too much to ask?

Third place in the U.S. for it's opening weekend - could this film be bombing any bigger?

It wouldn't be if Kirsten Dunst had actually been in Jurassic Park.

I'll woo Kirsten into a time machine cleverly at some point.

Ariana Richards. Child star. Escaped. Has a real life. Good for her.

I actually do not like theaters so I either rent or buy movies but I will still rent this movie, just might not buy it.
