I Am Tweaking

Because I Am Legend is so very near indeed. Check out the trailer, either on the official site or the HD version.

My ongoing love for Will Smith does not abate, especially in superscififuture-tasticzombiechompingaction-adventurehorror movies. Bursting hearts of love! But it is clear they're going to pull some horrible Disney dog injuring and/or killing manipulation that, while always effective, still rankles my tarts to no end.

No matter. Finally, I Am Legend, 12/14/07.

I bet I can guess what movie we're going to be seeing on Christmas Day this year! Can you wait?

I have ambivalence about this. Not because I am immune to Will Smith's charms (I'm most definitely not), and not because I'm still mad at him for mangling "Forget Me Nots" (though I so am). But because seriously? This movie obstructed me everywhere I turned for months. Most striking was when I was trying to get to the damn Hilton in midtown so I could go to the bigass law school fair. Some asshole PA was acting like he had police authority to keep any sidewalk approaching Fifth Ave in shutdown. Was a total douche about it, too. And then there was the time I was walking across the Brooklyn Bridge and everybody was freaking out because the film crew had massive flood lights at the base and a lot of people (cars and pedestrians alike) thought something was going down. Granted, there were no sirens or anything, and that was a stupid assumption, but it fucked with my evening. And then I ran into filming two more times just going about my business, and I decided that I fucking hate every asspipe PA who worked on this movie and I hope they don't even get a good line on their resume for their "work" on it.

So that's one side of the scale. On the other, Will Smith and 'splosions. It's kind of evenly balanced. We'll have to see how things play out when it opens.

Yes, I can wait. Probably.

I remember when they were filming down by the East River because I saw those dreadful flood lights when I was taking the train home one night. I never ran into any of the actual shoots, though, so my experience was more a passing curiosity than a giant annoyance.

You're right about PA's, too. Even for mini projects like the short bit they did for SNL back in 2001 right by the Flatiron. Very yell-y and obnoxious.
