WonderCon 2015: Warner Bros.
I might not be the ideal person to talk about Mad Max: Fury Road. The third sequel to an unfamiliar franchise leaves me very little to grasp onto. But I will congratulate Warners for showing us a full scene as opposed to just an extended trailer or sizzle reel, though they did that too. The scene was a decent action one but its gratuitous inclusion of women in wet, white garments and a quizzical overuse of undercranked motion made it less than tantalizing.
San Andreas, on the other hand, is more the kind of thing I’m interested in seeing at these kinds of conventions, even if I’m ultimately not interested in the movie itself. The trailer gives us a 2012 style natural destruction orgy with a family at the center. That the family is played by Dwayne Johnson, Carla Gugino and Alexandra Daddario (the latter two were on the panel) lends a little extra appeal but I don’t see myself lining up on opening day for another CGI extravaganza.
Question: Why do you even go to these things if you’re not interested in the movies on display?
That’s kind of a bizarre question. How am I supposed to know I’m not interested before I see the panel?
Well, they’re always for big blockbusters, which you almost never watch. Like, I remember you being excited about the Godzilla footage from Comic-Con, only for you to not watch it. Another example, is that you convinced Erin Gibson on the podcast that she had to watch Guardians of the Galaxy when it came out and you never did. That’s pretty hypocritical, in my opinion.
But I said nice things about those movies before they were out. I don’t really get how this hurts anyone or what the examples in your second comment have to do with your first.
It’s not about hurting anybody, I wondering why you go to see advertisements for films you don’t watch. Oh, and the second example didn’t really have anything to do with my argument. I was just mad you basically told her “You have to watch this movie.” while you didn’t even bother watching it yourself. It just bothers me for some reason.
Do you go see every movie you see a trailer for?
