What do I know about this movie? Nothing. But I know a man who does. In my experience this guy writes great reviews (being a professional n'all) and I usually agree with what he has to say. So if you are thinking of seeing Wolfgang Petersen's big-bucks remake of the classic 1970s disaster movie, THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE, you can check out Jabberwock's review here. Now, you may think that my refusal to shell out hard-earned (ahem!) cash to see this movie is itself implicit criticism of The Product. Well, it's not. I love trashy, big-bucks extravaga movies. However, having seen Basic Instinct 2 and MI3 I am pretty much over my Federal RDA of trash for the month. Moreover, while Philip Seymour Hoffman has never been in a bad movie, Josh Lucas, the star of Poseidon, has never been in a good one. This means that while I may well have enjoyed POSEIDON, the odds are stacked against it. Anyways, like I said, check out Jai's review, and if you think I am missing a trick, let me know.
POSEIDON was released in Australia yesterday, and is released in the US today. It hits the UK on June 2nd 2006, France on June 14th and Germany on 13th.
