Well, The E (if that is your real name), the joke's on you. Because while you were helping to preserve the greatest space combat sim of all time, I studied the blade.
Seriously though, the trailer made me want to see the movie. As a trailer, that's all it's supposed to do. Setting aside any knowledge or opinion about the book, how would anyone here really think about it?
There is a feeling I got just a few times at the movies, and I've been chasing it ever since:
Who's seen Jurassic Park, the first one? You know the scene when the jeeps drive onto those rolling hills and you see a wide shot of brachiosaurs and all the other critters and the John Williams kicks in and Dr Grant stands up and looks dumb? I felt that.
And after watching and rewatching A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back dozens of times on VHS, and then sitting in the theater in 1999 to watch the opening crawl of The Phantom Menace, I felt it again.
And in, of all places, Iron Sky, when the camera pans over and reveals a frikken fleet of secret space ships going to fight space nazis, I felt a little bit of it.
And when I saw the Iron Giant standing there, it hit me again, and when the DeLorean flipped its wheels out and took off, I felt that again.
Am I a witless victim of this focused attack on my nostalgia? Probably! But I don't care if I can just get completely lost in an awesome adventure again.
