    watch the trailer, they say in it that how long he was on there and mention how he gets off. there is no mystery.

        A lot of people, when the movie was nearing release, were critical of the studio for releasing a trailer which gave so much away.

          • Kiss Kiss Bang Bang was a bit confusing, but I enjoyed it.

                • Great Doc. Fascinating look at some of the ******** they were able to pull off and just the pure doucheness of Jeffrey Skilling.

I felt like they avoided the hopelessness that he encountered. They kind of just pass it over while he's on the island because it might be too depressing for the mass audience he marketed to, and they kind of use Wilson as a scapegoat. Basically, my big complaint is that it wasn't dark enough. I know it was going for a hopeful message throughout (Hanks tries to build fire, struggles mightily, but then overcomes... struggles to split coconut, struggles mightily, then eventually overcomes) and I do like how they attempt to make up for the lack of darkness while he's on the island with the Tom Hanks monologue where he explains how he attempted to kill himself and having no options, then bookending it with him out in the middle of nowhere at a crossroads... now, symbolically saying that he has options. Nice little touch and a great movie, but I think it was a little too light on the heavy stuff.




                    Also watched Colors. Pretty ******* awful movie with some atrocious supporting performances. Penn is... well, it's not that he was bad, he was alright, although his character is so over-the-top and so cliched that he became laughably annoying, so it was very difficult to take him seriously. With that said, it's probably the worst Sean Penn I've ever seen (He's one of my favorite actors), but I blame most of it on the writing. Duvall doesn't give much of a performance since he has a shallow character that rides the coat tails of Penn's ridiculousness. Pretty weak performance from him. A very silly movie.
                    I hated Cast Away.

                              Oh, no you didn't. You might avoid the onslaught without the explanation so I think you should be safe.


                              Anyway, what is wrong with Tony Gilroy? The last two movies he's written and directed both sucked because his jumbled the narrative for, I suppose, intentional confusion to keep his audience watching, which I suppose is an attempt to makeup for the lackluster story. Duplicity was a boring and dull movie with the ending given away right in the films title, not that that kind of ending isn't predictable to begin with anymore. The movie is purposeless. It's like, "Oh, here's a double cross. Oh, and there's another. Now we're 5 years in the past... a set up for a double cross. Now, we're 10 days in the future? Another double cross? Now, we're in the past again? Another double cross!! Wow!! I can't take it anymore."

                              I also think Clive Owen, an already boring and deadpan actor, is really boring here. Robert's is just as dull and one-dimensional as well. But it's probably mostly the material.

                              • Cast Away had Helen Hunt in it, so therefor I hate it.
